Would you buy event items from a cheater?

  1. Yes. If i want something i dont care where it comes from

    50.0%
  2. No. Owning something that came from cheating would just ruin it

    20.0%
  3. No. If some is cheating they might try to scam me as well

    20.0%
  4. Yes. I would buy the item, but probably lie if asked who i bought it from

    10.0%

    The best way to take a stand against known exploiters is to make it less profitable.

    See those cheap duped forged metal tools? pay a couple mil more and buy the real deal.

    Someone got scammed and now the guy is selling the stolen goods for cheap? Pass on the cheap deal.

    Sometimes Personal Integrity is just more important than the pixels.

    Everyone look at the attention ***** who's paid thousands of dollars for his "armies" and has little to nothing to show for it.

    Is this an attempt to wash your hands clean from what you do on dead shards or at events? Quick let's focus the attention on someone else while I hide my alternative motives...

    im not sure who your refering to peeky, me or snuggles? i play 1 to 2 characters, far from as many shards as "the pros" yes i was more efficient under the old system, but have never paid anything for UO other than the monthly subscriptions.

    I can honestly say ive never used a script or illegal third party program to cheat. I probably should, looks like everyone else is doing it from half the threads on UO hall lately.

    I just want to make it clear, I wouldnt judge someone for having a different view than me when it comes to the pixels. For me, no item is worth owning knowing that its come from abuse of the game.
    If you dont feel the same way, thats fine. Everyone is entitled to play the game how they want, do or buy what brings personal enjoyment. Its a personal preference, and your by no means a terrible person or something just because you buy something that was duped / cheated / exploited. In the end its a game, it really doesnt matter. the game wont be around forever. i doubt anyone is going to be regretting on his deathbed having bought a duped slither or cheated EM item in 2014.
