most valuable items list is pointless now? (in General)

TH3 C0113CT0R September 20 2011 12:35 AM EDT

so whats the point of the most valuable items list now, I mean its gotten so out of hand its not even funny, and i think tournament items should not qualify. I mean come on nobody actually paid for these items, did they?...i have to doubt it, tournaments are even long enough to make that much money. Just like the upcoming tournament, were each getting 2 billion dollars, i could take that entire amount of money and spend it on a pair of DB's and get +500 or something stupid or completely unattainable without spending millions of hours playing and spending thousands of real dollars, I can't transfer those to my main character and never be hit again... so why should they count

A Pair of Displacement Boots [0] (+338) worth $319,595,303 owned by Xenophage ((T79) [T]Not-a-Dagger)
A Pair of Displacement Boots [0] (+337) worth $317,408,071 owned by Mikel (King of Pain)
A Pair of Displacement Boots [0] (+281) worth $201,559,136 owned by Kefeck ((T77) TestKefeck)
A Pair of Displacement Boots [0] (+280) worth $199,773,888 owned by Zakalwe ((T77) Thought)
The Man in the Hockey Mask [0] (+276) worth $192,779,896 owned by QBRanger (Horror)

I only bring this up because i used to use this list as a means of comparing my items to others, see where i lack it just seems pointless. misleading even. maybe im missing something.

Its the same thing for the highest attributes...

Rangers and Mikel's are both indeed real, the T Characters obviously are not.

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] September 20 2011 12:43 AM EDT

That is true, but doesn't work so well for the attributes.

I would rather T-chars not register.This upcoming tourney will certainly erase some of the items that should be legitimately on the list.Who wants to see what some tourney char got with 1,000,000% bonus............................ Yea what I said.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] September 20 2011 1:11 AM EDT

I agree, at the very least just separate the two, but honestly why bother to keep them at all?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] September 20 2011 3:49 AM EDT

The items did actually get removed from the lists for the most part. If you click on the expanded version all tchar items are removed. It just wasn't fully implemented.

On a related note:

I'd like to see this change too even if it meant deleting t-chars 1-2 weeks after then end of a tournament... which would also clear out a few other bad numbers in the economy. =/

QBRanger September 20 2011 9:48 AM EDT

Yes, I agree.

T characters and their items should be deleted if we cannot get rid of their items/characters in the top lists.

TH3 C0113CT0R September 20 2011 9:51 AM EDT

I know Mikel, and Rangers are real, I did notice they weren't t chars. I was more referring to the amount of T char items that flood the lists.

AdminNightStrike September 20 2011 10:42 AM EDT

Deleting tournament stuff isn't a good answer, because it serves as a history of said tournament.

Wouldn't the thread do the same thing. Just update the thread with pertinent info, if it is too difficult to make another realm and separate things, then delete everything.
