The shitstorm continues as Booty Grab Strikers continue to thumb their noses at the Authorities.
Oh, the past few days have turned my opinion of Strikers. I've been playing Booty Grab normally. I have a few threads bookmarked and I go through them once or twice a day, netting about 40-50,000 gold a day pre-strike.
Going through them now? About 20-30,000.
You know what's really funny?
The only hindrance to getting back to the 50,000 gold per day average I've been hitting? Yep. Striked empty tanks.
See, the 3000-gold-per-grab average is about 750 gold per grab. 750 x 35 (the max number of players per Booty Grab session) is 26250. So if a tank glows six times (the old rate) in a 24-hour day, the maximum a 3000-gold-per-grab-average tank owner could get would be about 157,500 gold. Pretty nifty, huh?
But with the nerfing, let's calculate. 26250 per glow, down to FOUR times a day is now 105,000. Still pretty good to an average user, yes? But oh no, heaven forfend that Gaia try to stop a bleeding economy by cutting down THEIR profits by a mere 52500 a day, no.
If they can't have that extra 52,500 gold a day, apparently no-one can. Dolphins go in the icetank until their bitching gets that tiny percentage of what they're USED to getting a day back. Which of course will not work.
Oh, but some of you will say, "we already know this" and "there are guilds that hoard certain items". Well then, INFORM the Gaia administration of these guilds so they can be shut down posthaste.
And don't purchase Gaia Cash. Or use the scam offer buttons. They've always been bad news, dudes.
