Till 7/8 months ago, Desert set was hardly 15-20mil, Balloon banner 30-40mil, Lucky jack set 8-10mil.. People never cared about this items when their prices were low and were affordable.. I myself saw desert vest rogue getting expired in auction when it was listed for 14mil (I'm sure Devs also noticed all this if they keep track of what happens in auction).. And see today people are going crazy for desert set and willing to pay 100mil+..Same goes for red balloons.. Why ? Cos suddenly they realized its a very underrated and gorgeous vanity.. So price increasing and people spending their hard earned gold to own those exclusive vanities.. Marvelous villian vanity was less old and rarer than desert vanity, still it's price went up from 20mil to 280mil+ now

    People never cares when an item is easily available and affordable.. They don't bother to buy it.. But once it's price starts increasing, they starts complaining.. Many people requested Devs to bring back Green arlor set rogue and they did.. And now see, it's still cheap as heck and nobody bothers about it and rarely someone wears it.. Before it came back, people were crazy for it.. And also you can't force people to list an item in auction for 'cheap' price.. If someone wants, they might list Red jester set for 500mil but all u need to do is ignore it cos no one will buy anyways.. I do agree there are some greedy price manipulators here but Prices are also increasing cos people are actually buying in higher prices, afterall it's their gold their wish.. If people stops buying, prices of an item will automatically go down..
    Yeah why all of a sudden everyone is buying/looking for this stuffs its because a lot have the money and that is the effect of inflation, I cnt even sell my red loons 50m last month.

    Am not one of those “op rich” people youre talking about.
    But doesnt this inflation also have roots within goldloot farming itself?
    Seeing as people can make 2m/hr these prices arent that insane anymore, atleast not for goldloot farmers.
    Now, i am not saying these prices are reasonable, far from it, but its not just pirate booty’s fault or whatever, the roots of inflation lie deep within all the goldloot farming done in E.G gates and DM.

    I’d prefer they remove or extremely nerf gold loot. Gold Loot is the reason why gold is losing value, to mention it’s the main cause of inflation as-well.

    Many people had money before too but since those vanities were cheap than, none cared much about them.. The people who didn't buy balloons when it was 30mil or those people who didn't buy desert set when it was 10mil, are now crying cos price is increasing.. Now don't tell me that 10mil was a lot. They had the money before too but they didn't buy cos it was not "trending" than.. They were busy buying villian set/Medusa/frank/lepre-banner etc than.. Obviously an old or rare item's price will increase over time.. It happens in real life too.. Now red balloon or desert set/Marvellous villian/bullion bowl or bb/kershal/maul are trending so everybody wants them to make themself look rich.. That being said I do agree that the recent house party event made a lot of people rich, specially the house owners who hosted back to back parties.. But a lot of op players don't use good vanities cos vanity is just for show off.. You can avoid it if you can't afford

    Don't try and argue supply and demand, because many of these items aren't even hard to get or rare at all. Some are, yeah, but the majority arent.

    Also, if this post annoys you:

    - It's probably because you are one of the price manipulations.
    - You're a dev and don't like drama (Sorry)
    - You're insanely rich and don't care about those who arent.

    Btw Emc, dw you get a pass.

    The price of items will only rise if they are players willing to buy it at that price. If an item is clearly overpriced, and no players want to buy it at that price, then inflation won’t happen in the first place.
    Solution for those who want the prices of items to drop : Don’t buy them, decrease demand.
    For those who want it to rise : Don’t sell them, create scarcity
    No one will win in this xD

    Removal of gold loot completely can never help. It only removes the source of gold loot. The gold accumulated from it won't get dissolved, it will only move from player 1 to player 2.

    The only solution is gold sinks. Awakening event has been a good gold sink. Spendsalot isn't a great gold sink anymore, the goodies are outdated there, so we need new sinks. Also if gold loot is completely removed, it will give the merchants complete monopoly over the market. Not like they don't have it already, but still. It would be naive to believe that prices would fall back to place without gold sinks. No merchant would sell you bbhooks for 2m when they invested more in it.

    There are other stuff like, it it's removed how will players be compensated? It won't affect just one or two players, it would affect hundreds and thousands of players.

    I can understand people saying it's just inflation since there's been a tonne of gold generated from the booty event. But what I don't understand is the fact that only vanities are rising up, not eggs/gear. It's weird and suspicious how an inflation could affect a single portion of the economy rather than the economy in its entirety.
    And the people making an argument that blotto event contributed more to the inflation are wrong. In booty, we farmed pure gold but during the blotto event, there was a classic "loot item, sell, repeat" scenario which balances out the economy. Sure, people looted upto 100k every hour but even dm and evg can drop millions in an hour.
    We've been sittin' here, you and I, like a couple of regular fellas.

    Denying that Inflation is a thing, and that its mostly influenced by "Manipulators" etc.. is beyond delusional.

    Like as if those trillions of generated gold from the past 4yrs of gold farming, circulating around ain't a thing.

    let me see if i understood, people were suddenly rich, and people were suddenly interested in several vanitys, all at the same time, even though there was an awaken event where a lot of gold was spent and without having increased the drop rate in the main ones farm maps ... I don't think so much explanation made a lot of sense ...

    I think armors aren't rising due to the fact they are looted in locked chests constantly by people rather lb items have a limit of how many are in game. Armors don't have a limit.

    Yes exactly and if all the rare vanities becomes cheaper than everyone will own them and wear them..Than will there be any speciality or value left in them ? The game itself will have no value if that happens.. There are still many cheap vanities which price will rise after few months but instead of collecting them, some people are busy complaining about the past vanities becoming expensive
