Just wish my luck was better since some people say they got legendaries during the runs but i got nothing. >_<
That's my point. It's not a free service. It quickly turned into a `10 million gold service. I can do the runs on high MP myself, just not as high as 8-9, which is why I came to you guys.
I messaged him and said we had 2 players, I gave him our stats, dps, etc. I asked which level he could help us with (we generally do 5 together), he responded: "9". He then said he was in the middle of a game and would be with us shortly.
Less than a minute later I'm told I have to pay 10 mil if I want to be carried. According to him this was due to the headache it would take to carry 2 people at lvl 9. I said: "Okay, we'll just do the run at a lower MP level and you guys can help us there if you cant carry us at MP9" And the response I got was "Nah... organ drops have a decreased chance on lower MP levels" Yet... They are my machines (My risk) so why would you care about that? Because you're trying to charge 10 million for your "free" service, that's why.
No, I didn't lose anything... But they are using the diablo 3 forums to promote something as being "free" but in the game ask for millions of gold. Obviously if they advertise as being free more people are likely to reply... Then let's say 9/10 people will not pay the gold to be carried, that's still a cool 10 million they are making off the one person who agrees to, not to mention all the free drops they get from your machines.
That's why it's a scam. If you have worked with these guys and have had a different experience, that's fine. I'm never the type to complain about anything or hash out on these forums. I'm a nice guy and don't have a problem with anyone, and I never do things like vent out my frustrations on forums or anything like that. In fact, I was so bothered by this obvious gold scam that the post I made in this thread was my very first post EVER (And I've been playing on blizzard for more than 10 years).
To summarize, I don't take exception with them charging 10 Million Gold. I think that's perfectly reasonable, you can find lots of things worth 100+mil gold fighting uber bosses on high MP levels. My problem is only the fact that they use battle.net forums, promoting themselves as a "free" service (says so right in the thread title) but actually charging 10mil gold. That's not only false advertising, and a violation of Blizzards TOS, but taking advantage of people with their heart set on farming the highest MP levels.
Anyways, my intentions were to warn others, not get into petty arguments with strangers online. This will be the last time I ever check this thread.
