I wonder what the players’ reactions to this are. There’s a strong anti-RMT sentiment at least among part of the player population. Does that apply only to the ability of RMT to give you superior powers that you have not “earned” through gameplay, or does it apply to any kind of RMT as it is an instance of the real world “seeping” into the game as Castronova puts it.
