White lies are harmless, especially when done out of TLC. I still remember those Christmases my mom looked me straight in the face and told me Santa wouldn’t come down the chimney if I didn’t finish my vegetables.

I wish I could say the same for Gamemammy.com, but this conniving store only pretends to care about its customers to get the ka-ching profits.

The Logo Maker Should Be Shot
Before we get into the disappointing service (is it so hard to ask for an upstanding Rift Platinum store—I keep running into the bottom barrel dregs), let me first critique the logo.

COMIC FRIGGIN’ SANS! There’s a reason why this font is hated the world over: it’s the most immature font known to man. Thousands of perfectly reasonable grown ups want to kill, destroy and ban Comic Sans—and still Gamemammy.com uses for their logo. They probably thought it was “cute,” meaning we’re off to an ominous start.

Discriminates Against Small-time Buyers
If you want to purchase Rift Platinum in small doses, then don’t even bother visiting Gamemammy.com. There’s an alarming lack of low denomination offerings.

This just as bad as the website I last reviewed which didn’t offer more than 150 Platinum. Stores should always have the right balance of low (10, 20, 25), medium (50, 100, 150) and high (300, 400, 500) offerings to match the varying needs of players and guilds.

More Customer Training Needed
Quick survey—should it be required for a chat support agent to also be a gamer? If you answered “no, she just has to type in cute emoticons,” then you fully deserve the sloppy service I expect you’ll end up with at Gamemammy. Chat agents should play at least 10 hours of the game he or she is servicing to avoid awkward conversation. See my chat with the patient but clueless Moon:

You may think that’s just a minor lapse, not knowing what a shard is, but don’t forget that this was just 30 seconds into our conversation. What happens then when you have to complain about a delivery problem in-game? No doubt some headaches.

Stock Situation – Low at Best
Right now, Gamemammy.com seems to be in a squeeze for Rift Platinum. Checking stock in itself took a total of 5 minutes, which is an extremely appalling rate given how automated the systems behind a virtual currency store are. My guess is they had to talk to suppliers to farm stock while we wait for the plat, as opposed to them having stock ready for delivery.

I was also turned off by their holier than thou attitude. What dear Moon doesn’t realize is that they are just as deceiving as their so-called inferior competitors. Remember how Moon checked the stock and said I can already “order it”?

Gamemammy.com seems to be on a take orders-then find stock later policy.

After my chat with Moon, I ordered their bare minimum 50 Rift Platinum on a different server, where my real toon was and got it almost two days later. If you’re a bulk buyer, Gamemammy.com might be the site for you—if you’re willing to wait for a long, long time.

P.S. Rift Patch 1.1 is keeping me away from some raid nights., but maybe the tides will change soon; Blizzard is cranking up the hype machine for WoW Patch 4.1!

    Do you know if i can trust them for runescape gold??

  2. Extreme Gold Fan on 24 Jun 2011 at 3:41 am #

    Hi Alex, I haven’t tried them for Runescape Gold, but I rely on the adage: Rotten apples fall from the same tree.

    you are correct, i cant even figure out how to get a refund they still havent sent it. DO NOT BUY FROM GAMEMAMMY and please help me figure out a refund

  4. Josh on 28 Oct 2011 at 4:03 pm #

    Actually I buy from them all the time for DFO at 30mil gold minimum and I normally get it within 30 minutes..though there are times i have to wait longer but they are also larger orders. They do give refunds you just have to tell “moon” in the customer service chat which i do admit is carp but they are trustworthy.

    I just completed a transaction with gamemammy.com for dfo gold and their rep “moon” was both direct and helpful. I placed my order, and then the nexon servers went down for over an hour, but moon waited along with me and when the servers came back up sent my gold within a couple minutes. So my experience varied greatly from the above article and I wanted to make sure folks knew these guys are legit :)

    The service was great the first time I bought from here but the second time took awhile 15-30mins with conversing with “moon” to get the transaction in game to finally work. I have made a third order but the “Live Chat” is off so now I have to wait.

  7. Extreme Gold Fan on 15 Nov 2011 at 2:09 am #

    @Jason Good to hear, but maybe Gamemammy should just stick to Dungeon Fighter then if they can’t deliver the same quality of service to us World of Warcraft and RIFT players.

    this site is horrible… i chatted with moon twice and both of them were horrible experiences. First time he said he was busy and he didn’t answer my questions at all and logged off, then the 2nd time he logged off in the middle of our chat. I asked him if he had mail’d my dfo gold that i order’d and paid for 2 days ago and he said he mail’d it but i didn’t get anything… and i put the right character name in. I checked the bottom of my orders where it said Total orders completed and it said 0 so im guessing he didn’t send anything to me yet. I would definitely not order from this site at all, moon is unreliable

  9. Churche on 25 Jan 2012 at 11:11 pm #

    Well, I thought I’d give it ago for DFO, after several hours of annoying this “Moon” character, I finally got my order to go from “Not Paid” To “Paid”. When earlier in our conversation I asked him how long it would take to mail me my gold, said 30 minutes. Four hours in, he finally asks for my ign to mail it to me. So I wait around, and the chat goes offline, wait another 4 hours comes back on and ask them whats taking so long. 12 hours in now, and getting oh it’ll be another 30 minutes. Due to Chinese new year.

    Bought almost 6 days ago and the site is STILL down. No delivery. O But I did get an e-mail telling e to log on…at 3am. I obvioulsy wasnt asleep…. Still waiting. Refunds are given by Paypal.

    shut the F*CK all up bro’s i ordered 50m of runescape gold (1x 10m and 1x40m) and it all went fucking right, whats the matter??!?!

  12. lolo on 12 Jun 2012 at 12:51 am #

    7 hrs on the chat with the same ‘moon’ finally got a honest answer… apparently farmers are playing diablo 3 now so hes short of farmers lol better answer than 7 hours of ‘im working on your order’

  13. Martin on 24 Jun 2012 at 7:43 pm #

    how the hell do i get the gold i ordered? do i get contacted in game? I have no idea how to get my gold, on their website , it says to log on, and the you would be contacted.

    This is fucking bullcrap, sorry for saying but its just lies, i bought a total of 30 m rs gold there (first time 10m then another 20m) and it went all perfect, they are cheap, moon is really heplfull, i got an aditional 300k bonus so i dont know what the problem is. only problem is the chat isnt always online, but when it is you will be helped perfectly.

  15. Chris on 01 Nov 2012 at 10:40 pm #

    I don’t know the rest of the people but I made two purchases and the delivery was right away. Moon was very helpful and the gold was delivered while I was on the chat. Delivered in less than 5 min. I had a good experience with gamemammy. I really recommend. Thanks guys! :-)

    this is completely wrong I mean I’ve been a customer here for a while for warcraft and for runescape and everytime I buy it, it comes face to face rather quickly. They’re prices are literally the cheapest you can check player auctions and compare. I’ve bought and am still buying for warcraft (not rs anymore but I did buy from rs around 3 months ago) and it still satisfies me. RS gold delivery is faster than wow but still wow delivery is very fast and for 3 dollars cheaper than other companies on player auctions for 20k gold I’m very satisfied.

  17. st. range on 06 Nov 2012 at 1:56 am #

    i dont get it with these comments about runescape. this post and looks like the entire blog is about world of warcraft and wow gold delivery, as a domain like “wowgoldfacts.com” suggests… not runescape gold. who cares about runescape? srsly???! and for wow, some servers are better delivery than others. to me these reviews are about the most honest i have seen because there are PICTURES!!! for all the recent comments saying gamemammy is good — pics or it didnt happen. you could be some gamemammy employee for all i know, or doing a service for them to get free currency or whatever. KEY POINT: dont just trust only this site for a wow gold seller review, look at the others. hell, look at mmobux.com, they say gamemammy is a FRAUDELENT site because of many complaints received. its in a bold warning banner, and i’m sure there are TONS more complaints about them that they are trying to cover up.

    Gamemammy scammed me. Never delivered and didn’t refund.

  19. John on 02 May 2013 at 9:06 pm #

    This is what you have to realize…. This website is one of the cheapest around for some games. What you are paying for is the gold only, you are not paying for customer service and fast delivery. Its like buying from BestBuy or the corner store. BestBuy is a little more pricey then the corner store but your guaranteed fast friendly service and good policies, or you can buy from the corner store who is cheaper and has a grumpy old man at the counter serving you which will be somewhat of a bad experience but you still get the same product. Ultimately, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR and when you buy the cheapest your not paying for the best service of your life. If you want delivery 30 min or less, pay the extra $$ for it, or shut your mouth and have some patience. A.K.A – Grow Up
