Went with the middle tier, rather than Conqueror's. With the current exchange rate it's more than I've spent on a game since FFXIV originally came out (6 years ago).

The money would have been part of some stock investments that panned out. Basically as much work as George Jetson puts in.

Hey guys, I heard alot of stories about people doing crazy things, to afford the Conqueror's pack for this game

Personally, I had to sell my League of Legends account, which failed since I got banned for boosting as I was selling it (I didn't even boost. RITO pls wtf) So I just ended up selling gold, in another MMO I played. (The MMO was dead and the devs didn't care about gold sellers anymore)

What did YOU do to afford the preorder? Whether you sold crack on the corner of the street, sold your body, or simply begged your parents cause you're a spoiled little b...rat ? Tell me. 

I work a good paying job and have extra spending money.

Not only did I pre-order Conqs but 3 other collectors edition for games so I spent like $350 or more that month.

I had to hide away a few dollar at a time from my pay check. That way the wife wouldn't notice it. I just blamed it on Obama's new taxes. Thanks, Obama...

I know some of you are just having fun and poking fun. :)

But some of you...sheesh. Some of you need to just ----- off and die. I can only hope when the revolution comes, it's the arrogant elitist pricks that are first against the wall.

Worked for literally a little less than an hour. Cause Construction pays well. (depending on what you do I suppose.)

 

Sad part is, like most other games I have played, within a month, I'm usually done with the game. Somewhere around 600 games on my Steam account, majority of them I tossed aside in a day. I have a feeling I don't know the value of a dollar...

I'm in IT, we don't really work so I guess I technically dicked around on Reddit for 2 hours.  Actually that's pretty much what I did the other 6 hours too....

Hitting "confirm purchase" wasn't all that hard for me. I probably made the money in 5 minutes. I was probably just breathing at the time.

Fella, I can't tell if you're serious or not. Even if you are just a kid, the cost spread out over a year is something like .27 cents per day.  Surely you can scrounge that amount?  Have you looked into getting a paper round?
