Corn and HoE
I agree with Maulaxe about the BM. We should try to make it so it's not just for the elite players. I don't see why we should encourage people with < 50kPR to vote on items they 1) don't need, 2) can't win.
I'd hate to thing that the BMVG is just a tool for elite players, because i know that isn't the intent.
Well, what can smaller people afford to win auctions on, really?
Items that aren't rare anymore, like kat and cb... :p
I guess it's back to the old credit game, eh? Anybody interested in making a loan?

Nixon, so what should we put in some more? Katanas / Compound Bow?
if the 'elite' community would help for this then i'd be up for it of course but the smaller people already get some katanas in the system almost every week

1) Buying base katanas is not a good idea: if you save a bit (or take a loan/pp) and buy one that has already been upgraded, you save a lot of money. Same thing goes for compound.
2) Do we really need to spawn HoE in this moment? There are already 10 in the auctions.
Maybe we should wait some weeks for them.

Jibfest, back in CB1, I complained that the BMVG was pointless for new players, because they could never possibly afford the items they were supposed to vote for.
The response that I got is that, when a player with lots of money get a new item from the BM, they will probably not need whatever old item they were using. Thus a good non-rare item often becomes available for each rare item that spawns in the BM.
This might not be completely true in CB2, since people are still building up characters, and seem to hoard the decent items they get.
Anyway, what non-elite items should be spawned in the BM? No need for katanas or execs, since a number of those will be available once people finish upgrading their VBs. Besides, there always seems to be an excess of those in auctions.
i agree with you guys. i wasnt thinking katanas or execs but maybe MCMs, tulkas, ECs, shadows, .... things that dont cost $5-6M.
btw, i don't disagree with getting uber items in the BM. I would just encourage two separate items at a time. one for people with money and one for that lower PR players can vote for and hopefully win.

Yes, Tulkas, EC, and SC would be useful. Maybe not MCM so much anymore...
