Benefits and pay for Online Gaming

Hi, 
 
Unless you are actually a professional online game account trader, cost of selling your account actually outweighs the benefit or pay. But in reality, there are really serious players who do this for living. Like for example selling items, trading virtual money to real money but there is actually a catch on this. It is actually illegal for some legitimate online games to trade any game related account or item to actual money. 
 
The more legitimate way to earn money in online gaming is to become a professional player that could compete on highly prized competitions. In fact, in Korea, there are full time gamers that live together, practicing their skills and earning sufficient cash price in various competitions. 
 
Just a side note, online gaming are designed strategically and psychologically to be addictive. The main objective for them is not for players to earn money, but to get player hooked so their stream of income is continues.
 
I hope this helps.

Yes, that’s true. I also know that trading with actual money within an online gaming site is not legal but this is happening in most of the gaming sites I know. There are actually other individuals who hire players to play on a specific online gaming site to earn game money or the cash a player earns from the game while playing it. Then when the players reached a certain threshold on the amount of cash, the person who hired them will then pay them a certain amount in exchange for the in-game money. This kind of money-trading activity is also popular in “Cabal online”, an MMORPG online gaming site I used to play.

In fact, most of my friends are trading stuffs inside the game for real money. They collect different rare items dropped by beaten monsters and then find other players who are looking or interested. They will then negotiate with the interested player then if both parties agreed, they will meet up in a certain place and then will do the actual trading of the item by going to a computer shop, transfer the item to the buying player, and then he will pay for the item. I think the site itself allows these things to happen between players because inside the game, there are places there where you can see other players shouting for the items they are trading.
