I realize that it's from 2009 but really? I draw the line at anything over $25 and even that seems like alot to most.

I can't go to eBay at work. What skin is it and for how much?

In other (sad) news, I've probably put north of ~$200 into my LoL account. That micro-transaction model actually does work tongue.gif. I have so many damn skins.

PAX Twisted Fate at $305 with 1 day, 9 hours left. (^ He beat me frown.gif Emphasis on how much is necessary though biggrin.gif)

I try to focus on a set of champs, and stick with them so I haven't spent that much...yet.

I realize that it's from 2009 but really? I draw the line at anything over $25 and even that seems like alot to most.

Yeah that's ridiculous, but on December 14, 2004, an island in Project Entropia sold for U.S. $26,500. One gamer also purchased a virtual space station for U.S. $100,000 and plans to use it as a virtual nightclub. In addition, games like WoW have things like the spectral tiger, etc that people shell out a lot of cash for.

You also have this incident which is slightly unrelated but in EVE-Online some guy stole like 125 Billion ISK which I'm not to sure what the equates to per USD(During the time it happened) but I'm sure it's alot.

Ah yes I read about that Eve incident. What is the world coming to! They should just give me the money so I can do something worth while with it frown.gif

I also checked this sellers history and he's sold a few more of these codes, albeit for about $100 each. This is his biggest profit yet.

Aha! I could have guessed it was PAX TF.

and I feel bad for buying 2 legendary 1820 RP skins ! lol

anyway, yeah micro-transactions sucks for us, and I also have friends who have spent 200+ usd in skins, w.t.f.? Top end games of each year sell for $60 and have 1000X more time and money invested than paying a skin designer.
