Yep, and it's kind of shady.

It's been around a while. Most free games have a microtransaction system.

It's older than Xbox Live.. Think Chuck E Cheese / County Fair / Arcade or any place that makes you exchange cash for an in store equivalent.

Their tokens are worthless any where else and you're stuck with extra tokens, because they require an odd number of tokens for everything.

In the end, you find 2 tokens in your pocket, everything requires at least 3 and you can't buy just 1 more.

Buy 4 more or gtfo.

Yup, Microsoft lost and went bankrupt.

No, seriously, we all know what will happen. Students vs the biggest company with tons of lawyers who will literally buttrape anyone in their way. Yeah.

Spare riot points are the same as change at the store, if you got 25 cents back would you ***** at the clerk that there wasn't something cheap enough to spend it on? Nah. You'd probably get more money and come back later.


This is the stupidest explanation I have heard.
