Ironic, to be create only to have been destroyed.(possibly <10min left)

Should an economy not follow the simplest of rules like Supply and Demand? Currently we all know there is too much supply and not enough demand. and when there is a demand its for the use of the tattoo artist or the Melee or Ranged Salvage Yard.

Things would get more interesting around here if the BM votes were reduced so then when something is spawned those few who actually wanted it can bid on it. maybe even see a bit of desperation and up the values.

I've always agreed that the item spawn rates are way, way too high.

Ditto

And to think, with an increased playerbase, the spawn rate would increase as well. ;)

I thought the spawn rate was tied into how many fights were issued in some time frame. So an increase of player base would increase the spawn rate ;).

I told NS this, I'm going to guess a year and a half ago, right after he stopped tweaking it. He increased spawn rate, b/c it was directly tied to drop rates, and people were complaining about drops, no we get a lot of drops, of completely useless items. Hell, I'd be fine with them being cut to 1/5 to 1/10 of what they currently are. There's tons of stockpiled items out there.

Sort of. It's based on the number of fights in the past X time frame. It's a step function, though, with VERY big steps. So the player base would have to go up by a gajillion percent to go from one item per cycle to two.

It probably really needs to be rethought.

I do like the idea of no drops, and just black market. At least for the time being.

Note though that this isn't trivial. The drop system is tied to the spawns in the store, as well.

I've wanted a revamp of the Drop system and black market for quite a while.

Demigod July 4 2011 10:55 PM EDT

Ah, the poor black market. Yes, the whole spawn-drop-market does need some update lovin'.

I've been advocating this since forever.

I find it hilarious LB that while are real life politics couldn't be further from each other, are CB politics are identical. It's quite funny.

Yep. Also, my real life politics are polar opposite from my CB politics, which are hardline capitalist.

I've poked fun at this on some earlier thread.

Yes please!

We would, of course, get our 20% cash reward back if this happens though? ;)

Not as long as I have :)

AdminNightStrike July 6 2011 7:14 PM EDT

Oh, no drops... yeah, I meant no drops into the auctioneer.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] July 6 2011 9:08 PM EDT


And bring back the n!

AdminTitan July 6 2011 10:45 PM EDT

If you do this, I'll love you forever.

Demigod July 6 2011 10:47 PM EDT

He love you long time?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 7 2011 4:56 AM EDT

Boo!

We wouldn't need to have an additional cash reward drop would we? To make up for the lose of cash to cb again?
