    I guess I can see the reason for the argument regarding compulsive buying like hardcore collectors looking for different categories like stopping power, unique guns, rarity, etc but when you added "victims" and "school shooting" that raises alarm bells. Addiction to getting something new or better. Just like what I said about car manufacturers making a brand new version EVERY YEAR.

    It's all about that dopamine hits, some have different desired cravings.

    yeap, and then a pandemic hits and we see everybody panic and get anxiety attacks because they have no savings to pay mortage or even basic expenses, some companies try to normalize compulsive spending because it benefits them, and some people defends it because that way the can clench their inner feeling of irresponsibility, in the end we are building a society using crystal pedestals as supports and booooi oh boooi when they break.

    Please, this is nothing even close to "gambling". This would be like comparing a Church raffle to the Las Vegas Strip.

    Good point. If you didn't mention that, we would forget about charity towards PA. They need it.

    It has the same mechanics as gambling. You put "money" in for a chance at something.

    What's funny is that players are mad because PA put up lootboxes (with 150 fs etc)? There is no difference when the game was released with Artisans were multiplying attempts by times three. Then Artisans went x 4, added crons for "convenience". Now x 5 and lootboxes.

    Maybe the same thinking that well it's the same as Church bingo or raffle. It costs soo little until they keep upping the ante. Lootboxes looks soo big compare to 50 pearls.

    My vice of choice is gambling. Not into alcohol. Back when I was reckless I lost $10,000 in one day, a horror story of my life my brain wasn't thinking right and only thing I want is to "win". I don't get your point, this game is open for any teenagers that are getting themselves into "less expensive" but very addictive gambling.

    Let me know when they stop regulating alcohol or gambling.
