The RMAH discussion on the front page made me think about it. Majority of people here falls in two categories: the ones that hate RMAH and constantly whine about it and the ones that are ok with it. Lets take a look at these two groups...
Majority of these people dont like the RMAH because they care about other peoples gear. Period. They also care a lot about their own gear of course. They define their enjoyment and depth of the game by how powerful their characters are compared to other peoples characters. To sum it up they are people who would go to great lenghts to ensure that they have the best geared characters in the game beacuse to them being better than the other people matters!
PEOPLE WHO ARE OK WITH RMAH
These folks dont give a crap about the gear of others. They may or may not care much about their own gear though. They play game for FUN (wow!) and to collect items themsleves because it makes them feel good when they find them (while having fun)! The fact that they dont care about other peoples gear logicly implies that they dont care how powerful their character is compared to other people meaning that they probably wouldnt go to such lenghts as spending real world money on items in a computer game!
Conclusion: People who whine about RMAH are much more likely to use it! This is just a theory. What do you guys think?
