The problem is that once Phats are avaliable to buy, they no longer mean anything.

Jagex will never sell rs GP. even though you agree its "their property" on the ToC the day they sell GP is the day that if you get banned you can take them to court and sue them. If you sell something it implies ownership is shifted, otherwise it is illegal.

I think second life sold virtual stuff for real money and banned someone who bought that and got sued.

Jagex wants to avoid direct micro-transactions for that reason. They can get away with certain aspects now because those items are "gifts" or membership is a "bonus" to a free game.


Don't be silly. You'd obviously have to tick a check box that states you acknowledge you are only "renting" GP from Jagex.



Its illegal to destroy federal reserve notes because the government owns them. Doesnt mean they can take the ones im "renting" without a [cabbage] storm. Like I said Jagex will get themselves in a legal mess should they start selling runescape money and if such players happen to get banned.


Without a [cabbage] storm, maybe not. But definitely without a legality issue. It would be completely legal for Jagex to ban you after renting money from them, because you broke their terms and conditions (which you'd agree to before you rented gold from them).

The second they charge real money for an item (real or not) you are not "renting" it it is assumed by law to be yours. Doesnt matter what their terms of service says.

Who says they have to "mean" anything? Personally I want one because I like they way they look, not because they're rare and expensive.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...
