Jeff Vogel's Fourth 'View From The Bottom'
7:19 AM | Cord Kruse | 13 comments

In his fourth View From The Bottom, a continuing RPG Vault series focusing on an indie developer's view of the gaming world, Spiderweb Software's Jeff Vogel examines the impact of gold farmers on massively multiplayer games like World of Warcraft. Offering a different opinion than many players, Vogel considers the practices of farming, selling, and buying gold acceptable activities.

Third, gold farmers have a reputation for being obnoxious and cutthroat. In some cases, this is true. But spend a little time around the regular people you find hanging around in the game, and you will see that this is only because people are, in general, obnoxious and cutthroat. My God, but World of Warcraft and EverQuest are full of the idiot children of married cousins. Gold farmers aren't even close to having a monopoly on cretinous behavior.
