Prices Warning (in Off-topic)

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] May 25 2009 12:53 AM EDT

Just as a precaution before you buy any CBD or Items you should ask around for the current market values.

kevlar May 25 2009 12:56 AM EDT

which is currently around, what 5US to 1mil CB?

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] May 25 2009 1:02 AM EDT

Im gonna get this thread cleaned up

AdminShade May 25 2009 1:05 AM EDT

Thread cleaned up, please don't accuse fellow CBers of doing things without having solid hard evidence.

In the same respect, we also don't accuse a multi of being so until we have proof of it.

/me wishes he visited this thread pre shade-nerf. =P

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] May 25 2009 3:44 AM EDT

I agree Rave. This had to be amusing.

AdminNightStrike May 25 2009 4:26 AM EDT

> /me wishes he visited this thread pre shade-nerf. =P

And I'm glad I didn't. I'm starting to get annoyed.

Daily bump

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] May 27 2009 5:57 PM EDT

Id guestimate the current market prices between (per million):

4 USD - Great Deal!
5 USD - Average Price
6 USD - Still a good price if you need cash

10 USD - Don't bother buying this.
14 USD - Nobody would sell it this high as we have morals.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] May 30 2009 3:48 PM EDT

Missed a Day. Bump

QBOddBird May 30 2009 3:58 PM EDT

it's a good precaution to find the current market price before you buy...but isn't this a common sense thing?

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] May 30 2009 4:16 PM EDT

If sense were to enjoy commonality around here, forum traffic would drop by 50%. Sut, Dude and I couldn't make up the difference ourselves.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] May 30 2009 4:24 PM EDT

Normally I would agree but this is not about Common is about Common Courtesy which I'm attempting to extend.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] May 30 2009 4:27 PM EDT

When courtesy becomes common the terrorists win!

Is 40k current market value for a base whip now days?
I thought the AH didn't (used to?) take "low" weapons?

BadFish May 31 2009 12:51 AM EDT

well, something certainly seems fishy there. Both players joined today, one is selling a base whip, and the other bids 40k on it?

BadFish May 31 2009 12:56 AM EDT

That came off as accusatory. Well, I WAS being accusatory, but I shouldn't have done so because I have no proof. But it is still kind of weird.

Django June 2 2009 1:13 AM EDT

I was just wondering cause when I started my NUB I bought CBD for a 2:1 ratio and now its around 5:1. Does anyone see it going down at all? Cause I really hope so. I really wanna pump my ELB up more.

Rawr June 2 2009 1:16 AM EDT

IIRC the CB community is trying to keep the CB:USD ratio high (CBD costs more USD). It almost was at 1 USD per 1 mil cb...

Soul Eater June 2 2009 1:18 AM EDT

I wish it was then I'd be buying all the cbd I could.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 2 2009 1:18 AM EDT

hmmm well that was a while back times change *shruggs*

Rawr June 2 2009 1:21 AM EDT

that was in january

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 2 2009 1:23 AM EDT

I remember Rawr I was around with no USD or I would have bought the lot and saved myself a ton of money. Bottom line it changed.

Django June 2 2009 1:23 AM EDT

Good, now lets get it down to $1.85 again. :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] June 2 2009 1:25 AM EDT

With Myself, Ranger, Darkfury, Zenai, and others all buying... prices aren't going to go down.

Demigod June 2 2009 1:30 AM EDT

I personally try to segregate real world money from game money, but if it ever hits $1.85 again, I'm buying.

Shark June 2 2009 4:09 AM EDT

from the looks of it after I got over my temporary euphoria, it should be about 2 bucks straight up...but, poeple try to protect their investment and dont want to hear stuff like that...I am after all The Minister of Cynical Observation...

Soxjr June 2 2009 4:51 AM EDT

people are complaining about 5$ per mil.. if I remember the posts correctly for cb1 users it was a standard 10$ per mil back then. So if that is true then it is half price as it is now.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 2 2009 5:30 AM EDT

Admitted. Many on here are spoiled in the costs of things. CB1 and early CB2 were very expensive. All I can say is *shruggs* Things change if we are to keep up we will have to pay attention and follow the curve.

Shark June 2 2009 6:34 AM EDT

let them spend their money. they have to keep spending now to continue ..when all their CB stuff ends up in the toilet like it did in CB1..there won't be anyone to complain to..I dont mind spending a few dollars like maybe 50 overall. that wont bother me, but never never never ever again will I soak money like I did in CB1 just to give my crap away and walk...kinda funny actually now to see ones so driven to throw their money away for absolutely NOTHING in return other than that little special feeling they give themselves :) you are were probably wondering when I was going to get started..wonder time is over :)

Lefty June 2 2009 6:35 AM EDT

" kinda funny actually now to see ones so driven to throw their money away for absolutely NOTHING in return other than that little special feeling they give themselves :) "


Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 2 2009 6:38 AM EDT

ok this was "Supposed" to be nothing more than a Off-Topic General Warning Thread not a Debate Thread. You want to Debate take it to the Debates Forum Thankyou.

Shark June 2 2009 7:48 AM EDT

yeah I just posted my addition to your warning thank you

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 3 2009 1:02 AM EDT

Daily Bump..

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 7 2009 7:56 AM EDT


QBOddBird June 7 2009 9:38 AM EDT

I have a feeling these market values are going to need revamping; with 20% fewer rewards across the entire game, chances are the USD:CBD ratio is going to rise.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 7 2009 9:41 AM EDT

Of Course but I am not the regulator of the USD Ratios for Items or CBD. I am only warning that people should ask around before buying anything, whether it be with CBD or USD.

QBOddBird June 7 2009 9:43 AM EDT

um...that's nice...I was mentioning it because there's a list of approximate market values in some of the initial posts, and if people are going to be looking at this thread for values, they'll probably need updating soon.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 7 2009 9:58 AM EDT

Thinking on about it I will see if I can get this Thread Cleaned up thanks for reminding me of that OB :)

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] June 21 2009 5:02 PM EDT

Haven't bumped this in a while. Just to refresh this the Prices that were posted in this thread are old ask around for the new Ratios for Items and CBD. :D

PRDGY June 21 2009 5:29 PM EDT

why don't you guys just let everything be?

Messbrutal June 21 2009 5:40 PM EDT

Because they care for other in this community and want to prevent people from making fast decision they might regret and lead them to quit the game after.
