The difference being that if you had 3 billion gold you could buy the best item in the game on the gold Auction house, and all the armor as well. And it is otherwise just redundant to actually have 3 billion, in contrast to have 40 million which does not even fetch you one of the highest items in regards to tiers.
Regardless of the case - I have not spoken as of the actual validness of the photo. By all probability, i think that in this case, the photo is a fake. Because playing Diablo 3, with having collected that much gold , without actually getting any gear serves to be a testament to redundancy if anything. And that is yet again just commenting of what is PROBABLE in this situation, regarding what the person feels about the game etc.
And i don't think anyone should take authority to go "This IS fake" or "this IS real" - We can only speak of probability, but as right now is, all odds are saying it's a fake.
That's true, but you don't know what the intention is of other people. I myself don't mind not getting any upgrades, I can farm Act 2, which I like the most, just fine. I don't need better gear to be able to do it faster. So, I just play the AH a bit, do a few runs, and just keep piling up the gold. The more gold you have, the more you can make. Especially with the 10 auction limit. Maybe he's piling up the gold to make gold faster and then put 50-75% of his capital on the RMAH.
And yes, the photo is most likely fake (like I said in my previous post), I just think Zekaz posted that it's fake for the wrong reasons, I explained in the paragraph above why I think that.
Well - Perhaps. But then also the legitimacy of his argument can come to question observing the lack of objective stating of facts. This is why i refer to usually not enter these discussions overall - Because people tend to so easily derive it to something else. But this one specific time i think the better of the discussion came out of it. I thank you for your time.
Well, when someone quotes and questions your observation you're bound to reply to that. But yeah, the discussion wasn't so bad.
