      I completely fail to understand how flooding the market with overpriced listings of an item is going to cause that item to inflate. Only people who want amps badly enough to not care that the item is 20% more expensive than usual will buy those listings. If that number of people is so high that it genuinely inflates the price of amps, then the problem is not “omg some b**** listed 12 deluxe amps for 96k each, so selfish” but that the demand for amps has risen too much or that the value of gold has decreased again. I’m assuming that if they were listed for 70k-80k they would be picked over fairly quickly by people wanting to buy amps at a “normal” price and not with GCash.

      The fact of the matter is that it’s because people enjoy using amps enough to view them as a “necessity” in DMS (and SMEB a lot too) that causes the equilibrium cost of amps to fluctuate. But quite frankly this idea that they could genuinely inflate to 90k-100k each is simply absurd considering that a 3 pack can be bought for 250 GCash and stuff like the current RIG pack that costs almost 1000 GCash is only selling for about 750k in the market right now.


      Tl;dr: Not understanding why people are upset about this when it’s not going to change anything. lol

      To be honest I thought that since I first saw this thread last night, which is why I was lol’ing about it during our SMEB run last night.
      But then I logged on today and saw that people were actually pissed off about it and believing that this would raise the cost of amps, and I’m just like...what. o.o WHY?
      Binary pretty much hit the nail on the head with how something like this is going to go down in the Gaia economy.

Sometimes its easier to not think beyond the looking glass and just nail a scapegoat!

You shall not make a profit.

Profit is not the prize.
The true prize is to have my name spoken by many in fear, hate, love, admiration, etc!
That is my true motive.
To be famous for all the wrong reasons.
To be copied.
And you did well to fall into coping me!
So I win in the end either way!
Bahahahahaha!


I now see your goal. In the end you will never compare to me.

Bring Solar Rays and Quick Sand into green rooms as a DPS or a back up healer. Then we'll talk.

Fffffttt.
F dat Solar to teh Heavens of DMS!
Let's do it in with Kam in Crypt!
