1. Buying a cosmetic is therefore paying to avoid having to play the game.

Let me stop you right there.

Here, let me tell you a Jewish Grandmother joke.

So Hannukah rolls around, and she gives her grandson two sweaters, a blue one and a red one.

He's super-excited, he runs upstairs, he puts on the blue one, he comes back down.

"What's the matter - you didn't like the red one?"

I think that applies to any grandmother :)

Okay, fair enough. My point was simply that just because Cody can't conceive of a reason why someone who enjoys playing the game might actually be willing to pay for cosmetics they could earn doesn't mean that those reasons don't exist. Sometimes two seemingly-contradicting facts can live side by side. You can like the red one, and STILL have a reason not to wear it RIGHT NOW. Life is not as binary as he's painting it - that was really the only point of that joke.
