    Default Price manipulating

    Is this against tos?

    Someone has been manipulating the price of zodiac crates consistently buying them out and raising the price after buying them out. They were merely 60k last Thursday and now they have hit 500k.

    I know this because I've pretty much been the only person buying those crates up until then and didn't notice the reoccurring pattern of the crates being bought out and prices raised every time until recently. They even got bought out when the price was 200k which is an absurd price for a zodiac crates!

    What if someone really wanted to buy them and was willing to pay any amount, others such as yourself might have noticed an ''opportunity'' to earn money and have decided to list for a lot higher. Bold assumption.

    I would say that but 60k -> 500k is abnormal in the span of a few days

    So awakes were 8-9k now look at price is that manipulating too? No, it is not.
    There are so many other items that are being manipulated in price and you choose to fret over a 60k one o k

    whatever this doesn't really affect me much since I was planning on doing a locked opening for a yt vid and have achieved a somewhat sufficient amount. but if the price is going to keep being manipulated up I guess that works to my benefit as well since I can just sell them again for more profit.

    There are NO "set" prices in Arlor............. What people are willing to pay at a "particular" given moment is what the item is worth...... If there were set prices and changing them makes an individual "guilty" of "price manipulation", there would be excessive bans for the increased cost of awakening gems during enhanced awakening events..........

    If something costs too much for you at the moment, wait a bit and let the price fluctuate.............. Pay attention to the market and know when to "buy and sell"........

    Don't think this is against TOS. It's a huge risk to buy up all the crates. No one might even buy his zodiac chests after which will be a huge hit on them.
