    Many of you have heard the stories, those zerg guild parties thrown for members, paid for by RMT of UO gold and items. They sound great, and I was just wondering how many current players have attended one and if they are as great as they sound.

    RMT is "real money trade", as in gold farming, high end item sales such as runics, powerscrolls, etc.

    Yeah, I don't even think those who vote "Yes" are serious and haven't even heard of this either.

    only if you count Town Hall meetings (after all, our subscription and code purchases paid for them to rent the room and buy the food at Dave & Busters) :mf_prop:

    I've never heard any stories of wild parties paid for by real money "earned" from selling items in UO. However, this thread made me think once again about how government agencies, like the Internal Revenue Service in the United States, view RMT. I bet they'd love to get in on one of those parties and see who is profiting from selling virtual goods and most likely not reporting it as income or paying taxes on it.

    Is this like timeshare sales or buying property at auction because you can make so much money like the hundreds of other people in the room with you and the speaker?

    Or is it more like the cash4gold and trinket reseller ads on tv?

    Or perhaps it's a tupperware party?

    "zerg- no dictionary results" .......see? This is why I couldn't bring myself to attend somthing as embarassing as whatever it is you're talking about.

    Geek stuff like this have their own language, they abbreviate constantly, showing real age, not actual.

    Reminds me of driving past a convention center on comic book day and seeing grown adults dressed up as spiderman or something.

    It's one thing to play UO, it's another to seriously need help.

    i dont think it would be too expensive, all you really need is this: 10 pimply friends all bringing their own laptop, a couple 2 liters of mountain dew, and some of those $5 dominoes pizzas.

    haha, oh yeah, everyone needs to remember to bring a mic to talk in vent to the people sitting in around the ****ty apartment with you
