Thread: Beggars

  1. Default Beggars

    How do you respond to them?


  2. Default Re: Beggars

    Turn off Trading.
    If I'm feeling generous and they use proper grammar and don't just say "mesos pls" then I'll toss some their way but on a regular basis I barely have enough for myself.

    Also, I never respond to random trades. And I never go into FM entrance ch 1.

  4. Default Re: Beggars

    Prices for potions can add up quick.

    But anyway, I usually give them 10k-20k, something at least, if they ask for more, They are greedy, I cancel trade. Their fault.

    Default Re: Beggars

    Depends on the person.

    I usually ignore random trades. If the person is nice, I'll give them something, usually about 50k. Other times I tell them I'm broke myself, which is... usually true. But when it comes to low levels, if the person is of a class who can easily make use of the dozens of potions that drop from monsters, I tell them they can do just that if they don't know any better.

  6. Default Re: Beggars

    I've stopped bothering to respond to random trade requests. They always end up being a waste of time.

    Default Re: Beggars

    Depends, if they sound intelligent/competent enough I'll tell them a few ways they can MAKE money. IF they seem to be taking it to heart i might give a little bit to get the hassle out of the way, and them on their feet.

    Sometimes people beg cause they literally don't know how to make meso.

    if dey tlk lik dis then i'm walking away.

  8. Default Re: Beggars

    Stop responding to them, they're just moochers that expect everything be handed to them. Also if you see them type really relatively long messages, they're usually copy pasting or are bots. (yes people make bots for this kind of thing)

    Default Re: Beggars

    I've given each beggar 1m for the past few weeks, but that made me more broke than I already am. Plus, I was in a generous mood.

    Default Re: Beggars

    I usually ignore beggars, especially the idiots who are over level 90 and think they still have grounds to beg (I was shocked after Big Bang hit, as the people who beg never usually made it past 35 before); however, there are times in which I don't ignore beggars. Such exceptions are when I'm feeling generous and the beggar in question looks like s/he might actually need money. Other exceptions only occur when the beggar is able to make me laugh, or at least chuckle.

    I actually met my favorite beggar rather recently. The guy traded me, the conversation went something like this:

    Beggar: "I need money."
    Me: "How much, exactly?"
    Beggar: "1 bil."
    Me: "Um, what makes you think one billion is an appropriate amount to ask for?"
    Beggar: "I need it to buy pot."
    Me: "Ah, that is a worth use of mesos."
    Me: "Unfortunately, I have already spent all of my vast fortune on crack."
    Beggar: "Oh..."
    Me: "I do have a little bit left over that I can spare."
    Me: "Here you go."
    *I then put 100k up to trade*
    Beggar: "Thanks!"
    *trade goes through*

    Then, after the trade is ended, some guy who was standing next to us asks just how much he managed to get out of me. Turns out he was only begging in order to settle a bet, and we all had a good laugh about it. The beggar adamantly tried to convince the other guy that he had indeed gotten one billion mesos out of me, and I went along with the shenanigans just to screw with him. It was the best waste of time and money I've had in weeks.

    Default Re: Beggars

    I give it to them regardless in hopes that they get a good start.

    Hell I might give my items away soon cause I don't play and they're sitting on a account. :x

  14. Default Re: Beggars

    I usually say "sorry I don't give mesos" and cancel trade. I believe that they should learn to earn their own mesos.

  15. Default Re: Beggars

    Asking for money for potions in this day and age now that professions are out is probably one of the laziest things ever.

    Default Re: Beggars

    Used to give them few hundred thousand to few millions depends on my mood.

    Then a friend of mine showed me a script of begging (still wondering where did he get that) and claim that he could make up to hundred millions in a single day just by automated begging using THAT script in channel one of a few maps.

    Stopped being generous right after.

    Default Re: Beggars

    I really don't want to give anything, but sometimes I feel bad like what if they really are new players with little to no money ;..;
    I generally just give 100k and if I'm in a bad mood just ignore and fake afk o-0

  18. Default Re: Beggars

    I never give anything. I've actually been chastised for being fooled. It's not an experience I'd like to repeat.

  19. Default Re: Beggars

    I like to help them out; well until recently anyways. If someone asked for some politely, didn't spam like an idiot, seemed new to the game and they actually needed it; sure. I would usually give them 1m and that would make them happy.

    Recently though one guy was asking and I gave him 1m; once I did he left without even saying thank you or anything. Bleh, some people.

    I've kept my trades off to prevent spam trading from randoms and botters for a couple years just because of that.
