Quickie: Aion’s Banhamminator

You may or may not know that Scott “Lum the Mad” Jennings currently fights spammers and gold farmers in Aion for NCsoft. Either way, he posted a link to an ad against real money trading (RMT, essentially gold buying) the other day which is hilarious because it’s so bad. Seriously, this ad is even worse than those “don’t pirate” ads you get on commercial DVDs these days.

I always thought people working at game companies were somewhat intelligent but I assume I was wrong. I find it hard to believe that anyone will be put off gold buying by this video, even though I 100% agree with the message that you shouldn’t buy gold from third parties ever. Surely you can up with a better way of conveying the message than this?
Anyway, watch the video for amusement value.
