Yay sellers. (in General)

Anyone else starting to find it annoying? All threads below are from within the month, also 3/5 of them are nubs. Or 60%.

with the economy the way it is, i am not really surprised.

i personally have the fs/wtb forum hidden, so it doesn't really bother me at all. ; )

The amount of USD you make selling CBD is not really worth playing only to sell anyway, if you are older than 14. That time would be better spent at an actual job...

I don't really have a strong opinion about this either way.

I did read someone say that an option could be to make it illegal(or impossible) for a NuB to sell his/her CBD. Perhaps this could be implemented or even a six month period after as well.

I just figured i would bring this up again.

I hate to think that people are playing just to make a buck. If you're blinded by small greed, then at least put the money into weapons and armor for now and play while you enjoy it. At the end of your tenure, you can still sell your gear for ~70% value and cash out. Even with greed, the game should be well worth taking the reduction.

That being said, I don't support making it "illegal." The free market is a huge part of this game, and more sellers just make the USD conversion rate better for those who care enough to invest in it (I'm not a USD spender). While I'd prefer more of the money to go to Jon for advertising, he chose to only receives dough for namings/weapons.

I am surprised they seem to make so much cash so easily though..

My 500-600 a battle doesn't add up very fast.

I can't feel any ill will toward them nor will I.

Trying to mount a ground roots resistance against NUB's and cutting them off from selling CBD won't work and should be discouraged

Yes, it does appear that some people start NUB's and then just sell out for cash and leave. That seems to be the risk in a free market for CB though. Just don't buy from them and the problem goes away. Besides, if people just keep selling out, eventually the USD/CB ratio will become worthless and the problem is solved. I think it'll work itself out.
