    Default Is it a new trend of manipulation?

    Hopefully it will not end in a drama but I got a question for you guys!

    Since long time we have seen players making fake threads on forum to manipulate and increase price of items they own to gain more gold, we know this happened and still happens, we are used to it.

    But what if happens the opposite? Which is making fake threads of an item selling for a very low price cause those manipulators wants actually BUY them for a cheap price?

    The question is, does someone noticed something like that?


    Thanks have a nice day!


    Probably might be hard to notice cause after awake event all prices are going down so much.. But well maybe the manipulators are always around the corner

    Nice catch, this is partly obvious as in what happened to kershal and maul. People trying to lower the price more and more by saying everything dropped and justify their lowballs attempts

    Yes, 1 person can make all the items drop in value all at once? I like your logic, unless he had hundreds or even thousands of the same other 100+ different items and 100bil+ pure Gold I don’t see how 1 person can change the entire market.

    It’s obvious what happened, during awake event everyone panicked sold everything. And since some people were desperate for gold to hoard awake gems they ended up selling high valued items for cheap. That’s all it is, please stop with all these conspiracies about manipulation that, player hoard this.

    There’s no such thing as price manipulation of items, we the players decide how much we want to sell our items for. So, you can sell your ghost set for 3bil, there are no rules that say you can’t.

    Awesome, someone using actual logic about what happened with the prices. Some of these comments make me feel like people should never try investing in real life.

    Actually the purpose of this thread was not pointing finger to 1 person for manipulating.

    And definitely not rising the price of few items but the opposite, which is lowing down few items prices (by making multiple fake threads) in a way to be able to buy them cheaper.

    I was looking for few examples you might have noticed aswell as the first reply was pointing out
    I think to have noticed this on the ghost set aswell

    Please no drama guys

    I never planned to sell this set for the past 4 years and neither now XD.

    And yea, sadly the manipulation exists, many of us noticed it during years on the trader market section.

    Anyway the main topic was slightly different than the normal "price manipulation" people went trough years.

    It was new to me notice people trying to low the price of an item

    This post simply means I didnt want people start trashtalk someone for price manipulation and that the topic is not the common manipulation we got used to see but the pricing down expensive items.

    I said it to avoid go off topic as it already happened with a drama as you can actually see.

    Hope now it's more clear to you

    A point most dont consider here is that, from previous stated dev replies, the attempt to manipulate prices is enough to get banned. You dont actually need to change an items price at all. However, the other way around, people who think every change in price has manipulation as cause are obviously wrong too.
    So, if there are people who strategically post threads to lower prices they deserve an ban. It doesnt matter if the price did change or not, the attempt counts. Just as in ign selling on forums.

    Because there’s a difference between making a thread about selling frank set for 2bil and making a thread about selling frank set for 5bil while having “proof” of 3.5bil current offer.

    what? nevermind lets not ruin this thread , but forums arent a place to let loose of your irl emotional problems , lets forget that , and lets remind you that there was nothing wrong with my thread , i had offers for 700m+ ingame and in forums , which i provided proof of but of course unless you lower the price to 1/4 of the original one ( which is ironic , cuz this is what wills thread is saying ) you cant afford it . if you got anything more to say head to pms , i wanna save others your bs
    TL;DR
    Dont manipulate
    Dont trashtalk
    Dont get emotional here
