Xbox One Player Charges $50 to Help Others With Destiny's Raid

Given Destiny‘s lack of matchmaking with its Vault of Glass Raid, everyone has been in a position where they’ve had to go out and look for one or more players to fill the Fire Team – now you need look no further. Xbox One player Assasin321 has taken to Ebay to advertise his services in helping others complete the Raid; if you’re willing to pay the price.

That was exactly my reaction... Wow...

I'm also interested to see if he'll get any customers.

Man, I don't even play the game, and I can hook people up with friends of mine that are 27-30 on there. Who've also already done the raid. I wouldn't even consider charging people actual money to help them though. Bleh, I don't know, this kind of thing ticks me off. Profiting off of people who just want to try and experience their game to the fullest.

spicelicka1134d ago

Well he's definitely D-bag for doing this, but the real idiots are the people who'll actually pay.

Septic1134d ago

Hmm I dunno Snookies. I think its kinda cool. Someone's making a business from it and if people are willing to pay for it, more power to them no?

"Profiting off of people who just want to try and experience their game to the fullest."

But experiencing the game to fullest doesn't mean that they are forced to enter into paying someone to help them?

I do get what you mean though; you'd think some people would like to help from the goodness of their heart (and they many probably do) and others value their time and also want to make money doing what they do best. They are essentially contracting out their 'talents' online.

It could be a slippery slope if it sets a precedent mind you. On the face of it though, it doesn't seem that bad (although $50 for this is ridiculous).

it's not even a precedent ... pretty much all mmos got that set of vultures and suckers ready for it .

And well in spirit and structure , Destiny is kinda a mmo

n4rc1134d ago

I think its funny.. Good for him..

If people want to pay this guy for the help, I really dont see the issue

HeavenlySnipes1134d ago

It's not gonna work

There are hundreds of people on the Bungie forums that are high leveled and willing to join raid parties

I myself have done it numerous times and helped a lot of new raiders.

GiggMan1134d ago

My main complaint is that paying someone $50 doesn't guarantee that you finish the raid lol.

Anyone that has done it should know that one person on a team of six can't do it by themselves. What if everyone else is under leveled and terrible?

ABizzel11134d ago

It's somewhat shady, but IMO it's no different than people going to GameStop and being taken advantage of instead of much better places to shop like Best Buy, Amazon, etc...

A fool and his money, is a quote that will last.

Jonny5isalive1134d ago

I dont think it is serious, or they guy is mental charging 50$. If it was like 10$ then maybe hed have a chance of getting some noobs, but who the hell goes onto ebay searching for "someone to help with my destiny raids yeh"

I will never pay stranger 50 dollar. I will keep trying to get better

Frodosmugins1134d ago

So what!

This a familiar practice used in many mmo's ie' World of Warcraft!

For me the difference is Destiny is not worth buying let alone paying for help!

Wanted to mention.. If they had tradable currency in the game that would make so much difference to user base!

CorndogBurglar1133d ago

The funny thing is even if you pay him the $50, you still need 4 other players to finish the Raid.

Its impossible for just two people to do it.

Spenok1132d ago

Though it isn't surprising that people do stuff like this. I mean, GeekSquad from BestBuy charges like $60 to plug in your cables for your new PS4 or Tv etc.

It's ridiculous. Though not surprising.

I thought profiting off of Xbox Live was against policy.

BigBosss1134d ago

It is, and people caught getting money under the table can get in trouble

swice1134d ago (Edited 1134d ago )

What about people that stream on Twitch playing their XOne? (The ones that actually make money on twitch)

Septic1134d ago

Those 'donations' are allowed iirc.

BigBosss1134d ago

Nope, it's against the policy across all platforms. Can get in trouble if you do so.

Mustang300C20121134d ago (Edited 1134d ago )

So?

How is this any different or worse than people charging to get achievements?
