Many players resell their Fortnite accounts for astronomical sums because they have 'skins' that are very difficult to get

"I sell Fortnite's account 'chetada' and with exclusive skin. '' This rare announcement may not arouse any feeling between a person who does not play the popular videogame, but for someone who follows him closely ... Surely the outrage is important : someone wants to get rich in a very unlawful way by selling an object of the game.The ad is real and appeared on September 4 on eBay, which together with Wallapop or the Facebook Marketplace, are the main websites in which they take these operations. The 'skin' in question is none other than the Galaxy, an exclusive suit with a galactic print that can only be achieved at the moment by purchasing two of the latest Samsung devices, be the Galaxy Note 9 or the Galaxy Tab S4 And since not everyone is going to buy said mobile or tablet for having the appearance in question, its resale price is being ridiculous.The prices for this item vary according to the offer and do not have a follow-up. I feel very logical, from humble sales for 25 euros to others also raised of 250 euros. All of them, open to bidding: if many people are interested in them, each time they cost more and more. If this phenomenon exists it is because of the overwhelming success of Fortnite. With a monthly income of more than 270 million euros and more than 150 million players worldwide, this free videogame that is played online has been surrounded by a black market equivalent in size. With just entering eBay you can quickly discover that everything has a price. Many players sell their accounts or accounts they have created with the sole purpose of selling them because they have unique costumes or all the rewards of a season of the game, none of which is already available because of how the prize system works. Either you got it in your day or say goodbye to John Wick's suit, aka 'The Reaper'. Reselling content related to a video game is not something exclusive to Fortnite, however. It's something that has been in the industry for so long that video game creators have had to take action on the matter. Perhaps one of the earliest examples was that of Diablo II. This role-playing video game published and developed by Blizzard reunited millions of players around the world. And since their best rewards were random or very hard to get after hours of play, the forums dedicated to the title were filled with resale of objects or accounts: you paid someone who sold the object, connected with you in a session after checking the payment, he took it out of his booty menu and he 'gave it away' to you.

Man people are really wasting their money just to get apperance changes, the most important thing is skill, skill is something you can't buy, it's something you learn.
