Hiya Cokester. I have absolutely no idea what a "cookie" is or how anyone sells them in Yo. But I am curious. So if you would, please define "cookie" for the rest of us mere mortals. Thanks!

For the confused people above~ People are selling their in game money for real life money, for example: 1 million Yocoins for 1 USD. 'Cookies' meaning the selling of in game money. 'Cookies' is used to not get banned as they are not actually stating they are selling 'YoCoins', but 'Cookies' instead. :)

Thanks for making that clear... interesting how people have been getting around that rule, but I guess now that it's been made public BVG might go after them.

All day, every day on facebook groups they are selling millions of coins (cookies) for real money and it screws up the Yo economy. I mean why buy from BVG or bust a gut selling to make coins, when they can spend a few dollars and get literally millions.? They dont give a stuff about the game, they didnt invest years into playing or earning their wealth, they just buy it, then buy the rares, bumping the price of those to unreachable amounts.... :grr.

I never knew that cookies was a yostreet word for coins. Interesting read. But the person who started this feed is asking why it is bannable to sell coins and not yocash. that was her question.. and ....
I thought selling coins and Yocash were bannable.

:trophy:

They price-jack their items so much to the point that many items that were previously affordable for most players to acquire are now so unreasonably priced in the hundreds of millions and damn near impossible for any player who doesn't buy yo-coins from sellers to afford. These jackers than sell their hundreds of millions of coins to players who are desperate for these rare items that the coin sellers themselves jacked to begin with. These price-jackers get rich in real life and in the game while at the same time creating an unfair gaming economy for other players who do not want to break the rules and buy coins from them.

These people have destroyed so many aspects of the game out of their own greed. I have said this so many times but I have no sympathy for coin sellers and buyers who get scammed. I have no sympathy for the people that attempt to sell hundreds of millions of coins and then come to FB groups crying because someone else scammed them out of the coins that they earned with their cycle of price-jacking.

It's a wonder now you can speak English. With all your past threads who knows what language you can speak...dude.

Be real and don't sell or buy cookies. :balloon:

Oh hey now, let's not just blame the guys taking advantage of players who cannot control their own wants. The people who decide it's ok to spend 120M on an old bow because they want it are just as guilty. The sellers/jackers can't get these coins if people just decide to stop buying the stuff. It is why I like to call their asking prices "pretendsies" prices. They like to pretend they are rich, so I go along with it for a giggle.

They've run up the snowville eyes, the RI eyes, and just about everything else they can convince players are valuable. They get on their multiple accounts and put up fake bids for stuff hoping to fool every player in this game and get them to buy in. They run events, buy for fake amounts on the AH, and do everything they can to convince you and I something is now "worth" a new value. Then they sell the coins to the one player who gets convinced the FF Red Streaked is "worth" 350M and take those same coins back from him when they trade for it. LOL Brilliant!

But none of it works if players just decide that FF Red Streak hair is ugly as dog poop and isn't worth 100k. Then all they have is pretendsies, which is just as valuable as my pretendsies items too.

This is a silly game that is deeply reflective of the psychology gaps within people's minds. I used to take infinite coins from jackers by using their own psychology against them. Now I just sit and watch because they bore me. I wish more people would ignore them, but this is Yo and people gotta feel cool or rich or whatever it is they get out of chasing fantasies.
