That would only ever happen if PUS items were non tradeable or if there wasn't a PUS. Because they are tradeable, there are people who want to gain an advantage by buying items for $$ and selling for in game currency. Because this is the case, then others who are quitting / need RL money will be selling their ingame money for $$ for a bit worse rate than what PUS -> ingame money trading offers. Therefore there will always be trading between players this way. When there is such trading, there will also be chinese gold farmers who make their living by farming and selling for an even better price.If the players wouldnt trade Gbs for USD in the first place then the chinese wouldnt have a way to sell the Gbs since nobody wants them.[/b]
It's funny how this only happens in f2p games, and in f2p games people tend to use more money than what a p2p game would cost.
