I guarantee you probably buy things with your money that is a waste.
If people want to spend their money on a gacha game, sure no problem, it is their money after all. To say they are "pathetic" shows you are using a lot of projection there.
I agree with you, but that still seems like it would be waste of money but it provides creature comforts which we all have. I mean technically speaking anything that doesn't fall into the essentials category could be thought of has wasteful like games. Doesn't mean its a bad thing people just enjoy what they enjoy.
Good old reductio ad absurdum 😉 I don't think anyone here ever seriously suggested that spending money on games was a greater necessity than consuming food, the fact is that different people have different amounts of disposable income. If someone else has $500 spare and they want to spend it on games who are any of us to tell them that they are wrong?
Regardless and getting back to the original subject trainers are use at your own risk. and the Read Me does state
"We have NO IDEA if the developers will change this, or ban people for using mods or trainers. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED."
It sucks that any publisher/developer would ban someone if they are only cheating in single player but micro-transactions and IAPs are big business and ultimately if they think you are getting something that you should be paying them for or that means you are less likely to pay them for things then you can understand them taking action even if that action is disagreeable.
