Mythic president tells gold sellers in WAR to 'go to hell'

Sep 23 // Brad Nicholson

Mythic president Mark Jacobs knows the crippling effect that gold sellers can have on an in-game economy. He also knows the effect that gold spammers can have on a community with their constant “shouts” to the entire game world. That’s why Jacobs has already taken a hard-line stance in Warhammer Online and banned at least 400 people either selling or advertising the sale of in-game gold since this Saturday.

In a blog posting Jacobs said that he “hates gold sellers/spammers” with every fiber of his being and will continue to “ban these jerks like crazy” as the need arises. He also revealed that WAR has a dedicated team to seek gold sellers out early and remove them from the game. 

Gold sellers won’t be able to convince Jacobs to give a blind eye to the behavior with bribes. To his credit, Jacobs official response to such an offer will always be, “Go to hell.” Which is the same response that I give to anyone that offers me a drink with whip cream.

A man has to stand for something - even if it's delicious.
