Why SL is failing

Filed under: Second Life Shit! — Tags: , , — Hugsie @ 11:56 am

I recently had this conversation:

Some Guy: i never use money on sl
Some Guy: for me is just a game
You: but this “game” relies on it’s economy.  it cant run free.
Some Guy: opinion
You: even if you don’t buy any L$, if you’re able to get L$ it helps
You: no it’s not opinion.. it’s fact.. other MMO’s have closed down because of freeloaders like you
You: and it could happen here.. SL has already been around for close to 10 years.. it can’t last forever.
You: with all those lay offs they did last year
Some Guy: …
Some Guy: i’m sad for that
You: but at the same time.. if LL knew what they were doing there would be real value for paying for things in SL
You: so it’s a double edged sword..
You: i can understand not wanting to pay for this stuff.. but LL doesn’t do a good job at making it seem valuable.
You: so all we have to really rely on are other users.. so if you value the hot shemale you’re looking at.. pay her for her time with you..
You: don’t just stand there and masturbate selfishly. 🙂

There.com died off because they were making no money and there were more freeloading users who kept making new freebie noob alts every two weeks, than there were paid members.  Even if you don’t buy thier virtual money, participating in the economy does help.  But since since the real life economy is making people more frugal then ever before, LL is going to continue on this downward path.  So unless LL can find away to make Second Life SEEM more valuable (WoW can pull it off some how) or the economy improves enough so we have more spending money. I really don’t see much of a future.

  1. SL has no future. Don’t waste your time on it.

  2. Second life is far from dieing,it is just changing and has been for about 3 years now.I have been cashing out over 1000 RL a month for 3 years now,before that any where from 400 to 700 a month.Am I getting rich? hell no ..The days of getting rich are way over..1 person made over a million…1 time… it took her from 2004 to 2007 then died right out when the masses came to exploit the land market.I know 3 people that have made over 100k..took them almost 3 years and from what they told me good year was 55k..happen between 2006 ad 2008..those says are well over.Ranking works like this..and has for many years…top 200 make 1000 to 1300,Top 100 make 1300 to 3k ,Top 10 make 5k and more a month(i can tell you now the “up” part is over…10 are making 3k )One of my friends is a top 10 owning one of the oldest and popular dance animation shop..I take his word over any hear,say any day.Free loaders do help..they offer foot traffic,word of mouth and they work in world to make money..money they spend..SL is not failing,only the people sporting reseller kits,psd kit and shoe kits…they are failing and for a good reason..they suck to much to make a real product…I always love to see them open,fail and cry their way out..learn to make something with out designer kits and you will do fine..not getting rich…been cashing out from 12,000 to 17,000 at my best in a year.Never quiet your job and think you can live off SL…just make it a home hobby and see what happens..be unique and you never know..could be like me paying you living cost off SL and saving you RL pay checks for years 😀
