I like micro-transactions, but only when done like in Dota, just purely cosmetic ****, nothing game breaking or anything of the sort.

Maybe, but it's unnecessary.

Not entirely, it funds the game, the majority of content creators are now the community, meaning they get a cut of the sales, then there's the trading system too and etc etc.   
   
It doesn't harm anybody, well except when you're trading **** that's worth a ******* of cash and get scammed, but that's the risk of that business, but in general it just makes everyone win, general player gets **** for free which he can keep or trade around or sell for real cash to buy other games on Steam.

Glad to be of service, also, love your House gifs.   
   
Also, it actually to some degree helps the competitive scene. At the International last year, they added an item to the store, cost like ten bucks, it came with some shaz, allowed you to try and predict who'd win and stuff but it gave you cosmetic items, you got a ******* of value for those ten bucks.   
   
Buuut... Valve took 2.5 dollars for every item sold and added it to the prize pool of the tournament for the professional teams, resulting in.. I think it was a bit over a million dollars getting added to the pool.   
   
Other smaller tournaments have been seen to try a same sort of thing, buy our ticket, get a HUD and a item set along that gets styles unlocked the more games of the tournament you watch.   
   
Everybody profits.

Yeah, I'm working through the seasons myself. Just finished season three and I've been hooked since season one.

Nice, you got them on DVD or a site where you watch them?   
   
I personally try and own the stuff I really like on DVD if I can afford it.

There is too much money in it. Look at Candy Crush. 568 Million dollars in 2013. I don't think micro transactions are ever going away.
