Converting Karma to Gold is not an exploit

#1MASKOAAAPosted 8/30/2012 5:42:04 PM
An example of an exploit would be the ability to see UN ID item stats in Diablo 3. Converting karma to gold uses no exploit to do so, no glitch, no weird button presses to make the system do something it isn't suppose to do.....the very idea that this is an exploit is a joke. No one should of been perma banned for this. Change it if thats not what you wanted devs but its your fault that you left that in the system there was no exploit done to do it.

It's not.. They want you to buy gold with gems, not with karma.

Karma is obtained too easily in WvW.

Wait, aren't they banning people for buying the item for 1/1000th of its actual cost?

I didn't know you could sell karma items to vendors for gold. Can you?

Yeah.. a lot of people here are probably just trying to see what's up with the game before buying it. You make it look bad.

Yes.
And no you cant vendor them directly; they were salvaging them and then vendoring/selling those components.

People are using karma to buy the supplies to do their crafting. After they create excess products they dont want they are vendoring the junk for some money. Arenanet is against this and considers it exploiting the economy and banning users who do it. Keep in mind this isnt a ban for vendoring crafting materials, just crafting materials you obtained by buying them with karma.
