zeke's announcements

when playing the game and someone has almost reached max gold, zeke will come to the screen and make his little music sound and then the dialog. I know someone thought this was a good idea but it is not. He makes his announcements every time I go to a different area. Sometimes I can't do anything about it at the time. I can't stand the music it makes every time I change areas, and my computer won't let me turn down the sound to drown him out. I am a max wizard, I know I'm to the max money, I don't need zeke to come on my screen to keep telling me. I go and buy dumb things I don't want, for my house. Apparently I don't buy enough because my next fight zeke comes back on and says i'm going to lose my money again.
Someone probably thought this was a good idea because of the jewel socketing warning but it's not for some of us. I am feeding my gear, wands, rings, amulets, all to my pet now and trashing things that can't be fed to pets. Maybe KI would let members start buying things that cost crowns with our gold. I think that would solve some of the problems.
Does anyone else have a problem with this

Fun trolling money sink:

Buy empower TC. Go to Krok and ask noobs with temp/no mount if they will help you. If they say yes then they passed the nasty or nice test hahaha. Tell them, "You passed the test!" and explain how they can buy a perm mount for gold via the crown shop. Give them 113 empowers (enough at minimum sell value for the highest priced mount for gold) and get them to sell them at the bazaar and buy a mount. Watch them jump about on their new mount before they run off to continue questing!

Krok is way too much running, a mount is deserved and needed.

I for one am glad he warned me. I would've been very angry if KI started eliminating my gold without warning.
