What is the relation between the second hand economy and the primary economy on MTGO?
I've been thinking this for a long time, I want to support WOTC as much as I can, but I mostly play constructed (standard, modern and pauper),
Now let's say I buy cards from a trader using my credit card, technically WOTC gets nothing and I am still playing on their software,
BUT I just spend a 100tix on cards, now some drafter or tournament player probably sold those cards that I bought, and drafted or played in a league on MTGO using those 100tix that I paid the trader(minus comission),
so in the end WOTC still got my money minus the commission that the trader takes (11% I guess).
What if I were to pay my order with tickets bought from the MTGO own store instead? Well WOTC would now get all of my money, and I'd have to pay the taxes on top, but other than that commission fee that the trader won't be getting is there a big difference economically whether I buy my constructed cards with tix or credit card from the trader? the way I see it WOTC wins either way.
I also play league matches of course, so that is direct support for the WOTC, but I am trying to figure out how much do they benefit from card traders.
