And I don't see anything wrong with charging for such things - I don't even mind if your game becomes basically collectible - Wizards of the Coast have been doing that for over a decade with MtG, and I hear they're quite successful and MtG is quite popular. Just be so kind and stop charging everyone to play at all.
Now, see: it is a single euro. Chump change pretty much for anyone with the resources (A computer, internets, subscription money and free time, duh) to play Wakfu. Yet we're still getting worked up over it. It's got to be worth something, isn't it?
Me, I'd gladly pay six euros instead of five per month, rather than see such things be sold.
It is wrong because, as already said, it is buying power with something you did not earn through the game. Even if it was something else, such as wisdom candies, it'd still be getting advantage on the game with real money, which is something that should never be affecting the game rules. You won't give advantage to a football player because he is richer than the others. It just does not make sense like that.
And again, it does not matter if its +10 bonus of +100 bonus, if its 1 euro or 1000 euros, an advantage is an advantage, how big it is does not matter. They did this, they are causing advantages (same with ogrines), they fail. How bad they fail does not come to the case. If their principles are wrong, then really, they will never get anywhere.
