Where else 24/7 operational costs of data centers and keeping the security of the system and its data came from, anyway?
Yet, do the patronizing users knew this? Maybe some.
Mainstream mobile games as well as in computers has a way of monetizing it's users too. From the items for upgrades to beautiful skin to anything the platform can offer, usually at discounted price.
