In the past, we have discussed how gaming influences the real world and actual people. We have talked about how gaming can be a real career option with eSports and such. Well, today we’ll be talking about similar things, but in the shape of RMT (Real Money Trading) in World of Warcraft.

What is RMT (Real Money Trading)?

RMT is an act of buying or selling in-game items, currency or services that you can not receive from the official vendor (In this case, Blizzard Entertainment), so you resort to buying from third-party vendors that are not endorsed or sometimes even acknowledged by Blizzard Entertainment. For example, before the WoW Token, there was absolutely no way you could buy gold from Blizzard Entertainment. So what did players do? They resorted to buying the gold from other sources, like websites or their friends or colleagues, paying them real money in exchange for in-game money

Evolution of RMT

Back in the Vanilla days of World of Warcraft, there weren’t many service providers, except for the (usually) Chinese gold sellers. These were the people who would spend hours upon hours farming gold and selling them to players. Back in the day, World of Warcraft gold was actually very valuable. You absolutely needed the gold. For example, the training for the epic mount, and the epic mount itself cost a combined total of 1000 gold. In 2005, 1000 gold was worth about $90-$130. That is actually insane when you think about it. Today, 100k gold is worth somewhere around $6 to $8, depending on the provider.

Now, I have spoken to a couple of longtime account and service sellers. One of them has attended the after party at Blizzcon and had a chance to talk to one of the developers of World of Warcraft. He even said he had a business card which stated the name of his account selling website. He showed this business card to a couple of developers and they thought it was cool that he made money from buying and selling accounts and services in World of Warcraft. So what does this tell you? It tells you that the Blizzard Entertainment has finally embraced the RMT aspect of the game. There is no way that they do not know about large service providing websites like Battleboost, for example. They do know, and they are embracing modern real money trading businesses.

The Best Service-Providing Website

As I’ve previously said, I have worked with a lot of account sellers and service providers for World of Warcraft. And I have known some of the websites that have been around for almost 10 years. But in all my time of working with real money trading, I have never encountered a website which was as efficient and professional as Battleboost. Their services and customer support are flawless. I honestly have nothing bad to say about them. Personally, I don’t have a lot of time to play World of Warcraft anymore, but I’m a huge fan of PVP. So, what did I do? Multiple times have I ordered their WoW PVP boost or WoW Mythic Carry when I didn’t have the time to play myself. And each time Battleboost has delivered impeccable service that I’ve come to expect from them.

So, if you are like me, and don’t have a lot of time to play WoW, go ahead and check them out, you won’t be disappointed!
