The Effects Of Gold Farming

Introducing money into the economy of a game has a drastic impact on the way they are played:

  • It drives the prices of goods and services up.
  • It forces the average player to spend more time in the game earning gold.
  • It forces the casual player to resort to buying their in-game gold from gold farmers just to keep up.
