"Teh epik master plan"!

"Teh epik master plan" is my own brilliant plan used to escape the cruelty and sadness of the F2P world. Sort of like Team Fortress 2's separation of P2P players and F2P players.

I am currently an F2P player if we forget the piracy (that's how I have Half-Life in the first place). And I became bored of it! Being F2P is poop! And a pirate...

Therefore, I developed one of my biggest plans of my life - "Teh epik master plan" a.k.a 'Operation Green'.

So, if you came to see the plan itself, here are the steps:

1. Create a bank account (mine will be a savings account, since I'm 14)

2. Create a PayPal account

3. Acquire some 'resources'

4. Link the debit card (or a credit card) to the PayPal account

(Optional)5. Validate the PayPal account

6. Buy a copy of Half-Life 2

Of course, I've only done step 2. However, what bothers me the most is how I have an OK amount of real cash, while I'm a hobo when it comes to virtual cash. Nevertheless, I am a genious!

So, I always thought (when I was 10) that putting 10 KM (BAM, a currency) in my DVD-ROM will actually buy me the game. Turns out that it wouldn't. But now my opinion is greatly changed:

2010 - putting money into a PC buys a game
2013 - using credit cards buys a game
2015 - using credit cards or PayPal can buy a game
2016 - using my plan I can buy a game

AND, from now on, I will only use torrents to test the games I buy!

I will inform you in another journal about this plan, and I'll tell you if it worked.

P.S. For you "Git a j0b m8" posters, I can't have a job because I'm 14 years-old.

So the tl;dr is that you've decided maybe you should pay for things?

It seems so strange to me that piracy is largely the modern replacement for demos. I guess those things gave people too much chance to try before buying.

How can you "put" a unit of measurement in a DVD-ROM?

Do you not have Steam Wallet cards where you are? You can buy those with cash. :P

In my response to "How can you "put" a unit of measurement in a DVD-ROM?"

I can't put kilometers, nor miles, but I can put real cash inside of it.

You obviously never heard of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The currency there is called "konvertibilna marka" which is KM when shortened. It means "convertible mark", and many people accidentally replace it with kilometers, the measurement unit for length used in the SI system. So, once in a shop, I saw a price label which said "10 km" which would say that that item costs 10 kilometers, instead of marks.

And as a response to what Urby said,

I don't think I can buy Steam Wallet cards, because I live in a country where paid games are pirated games. So yes, here we pay for pirated games, that's how lame Bosnia and Herzegovina is.

Just learned something new. However my question still applies:

How can you put a unit of measurement [of money] in a DVD-ROM?

[edit]Wait you mean the drive? Putting bank notes in the drive? Lovely. Sadly ATM service hasn't yet reached the home PC market.

Yes, sorry, I forgot to mention the drive... since nobody here says 'drive' but rather only the word 'DVD'. As if (true) they say 'Put the DVD into the DVD' which sounds very funny. That's what I meant, putting 'cold, hard' cash into a DVD drive. But that was 6 years ago...

Wait! I saw something on gamers.ba which refers to Steam Wallet cards selling in BiH, this is the thread, but you should use Google Translate since I can't translate it all for you.

In short, they make cheap versions of these gift cards (we call gift cards 'bonovi' which is 'bon' in plural) with the actual code on them. The only difference is that these LOOK cheaper, because of production, but the codes themselves are original. So, a 5€ card costs 16 KM, more than what the EUR to BAM chart says.

Urby was right, thanks for inspiring me to look for some info about it!
