Paying real money for glimmer.

Now, the game seems to be shaping up rather well. But there's one thing that needs to be considered. Time. Time is something lots of players do not have. Many players work or have other obligations. So there's a really easy solution that would work without imbalance in the game: the ability to pay real money to get glimmer. This way players could instead focus on playing the game instead of farming like the rest of players and wasting their time. You can't buy gear with real money so you're still at the mercy of loot drops, allowing there to be no real imbalance between players. Example: Bob spends 100 quid on glimmer. Bill spends his time farming that glimmer for free. No big deal in a game mostly focused on cooperation and strictly balanced PvP sans Iron banner. What could possibly go wrong? People already pay over ten times the price for Ghost Editions. There's no difference here except how much you love the game and value your time. Being options, this should fit perfectly into everyone's opinions.

    I can't tell if you're trolling or not... but if you aren't, this is without a doubt the [i]worst [/i] thing that could happen to this game.

    • And why is it that you want to take a shortcut through the game? You are just going to reduce the number of hours you get out of it. Besides it would just start a arms race since there would also be people playing 10 hours a day doing this, and soon people playing the honest way would be left in the dust. The game currently rewards those who put some effort into it, lets us keep it that way.

      • You can buy currency for Fifa Ultimate Team, illegally however, and it has completely destroyed the game.

      • If you don't have the time to play, you can't level up your character to use the gear you're buying the Glimmer to get. The point of the game is that if you can only afford to play for an hour or so a week, drop into a quick strike or a bit of the story and enjoy it, without worrying about other players having better stuff than you.

          • Please no. Microtransactions ruin many games, and i would certainly not want destiny to fall to them. Thankfully, bungie has made glimmer only worth having for common and uncommon items. All of the best items are only found by exploring, doing missions, or by defeating powerful enemies. Even the high level shops in the tower require items that you can only get from completing tons of assignments. So even if we were unfortunate enough to see microtransactions added, it would only be worth the bottom tier items.

            I feel like this should've been a poll question. I'm sure almost everybody would say "no" to this. I Absolutely DESPISE when game devs release a "shortcut" pack for their games. And I believe anyone who buys said packs is dumb for wasting money on it. Earn this shit like everyone else. Don't allow noobs to swoop in and have everything I've been working the entirety of the game trying to earn.

            • No pay to play mechanics. It's not a free to play title, so no micro transactions unless they're purely cosmetic.

              • At some point in the day, I honestly and truly hope some random passerby takes a running start and punts you square in your balls. I hope they kick your balls so hard that they jump up your throat and out into the mouth you spew this stupidity out of, lodging themselves in the corners of your lower lip and leaving you looking like a down syndrome version of Marlon Brando from The Godfather.
