You don't "nedd" answers. You're basically looking for people to agree with you or, God forbid, are trying to make a passive-aggressive stab at players who still do what you feel is useless.
I put 700+ hours into X because I enjoyed "Bike Simulator 2014", Megas, Shiny Fairies and meeting folks to trade and fight with (to a lesser extent). Your questioning of what keeps players gaming in this franchise ignores the right players have to play whatever they please to what extent they wish.
I fell for the b8, didn't I?
