  1. I'd love to see prestige come back as an inf sink. Back on live  i was in the top 3 SGs at the close of the game for prestige on my server, and I was a solo SG. I'd love to be doing that again.

    I remember during Live, just before I left, I was in a SG (I want to say it was Liberty server?  Whatever the #2 was in population) that got to the largest SG on the server simply from burning inf for prestige.  Boy, people on the forums got so mad!  But at least on Live, there was a use for inf.  Here on HC, where the devs bend over backward to make sure that anyone can have anything they want for minimal effort, I'm really searching for things to do with my imaginary currency.

    Back when the game sunset I took the number 3 spot on Guardian server by converting all my inf to prestige. I was solo and it took the two largest SGs on the server to prevent me from taking the top spot. I miss having prestige, it was fun to see how obscene the prestige would get to.

  3. That looks about right as far as turn out goes typically. At that amount you almost always come out ahead by a bit. The whole bit is tedious but alot of the methods for making influence via the market are a bit on the tedious side.

    My buy-it-now bids are 95k.  My buy-it-soon(tm) bids are 85-90k.  My buy-it-overnight bids are 65-75k.  65k seems to be just about as low as it goes for now, and I don't always get fills overnight.

    I tried to fill all the bids on the market (about4k at the time) but in stacks of 10 it's too tedious. I did make a dent in the bids and dropped the active bids down to about 65k, but two days alter the bids were back at 8k total bids out and lowest was 85k again.

  5. I buy these things in stacks of 10, 30 or 50 and routinely get more than that in winter IOs (or ATOs if going for super packs instead). I dont recommend buying one and hoping for the best, they arent a cheapskate's game. Get some real dough and let'er rip.

  6. Im not sure you could dent the flow of converters very well. Last friday I attempted to buy all of them and flip them for 1 inf to clear out all the bids. I started with 28k sales and 28k bids. I bought enough to drop it down to 16k for sale and 16k bids. I stopped because i couldnt keep pace with the flow of new converters to the market, I wasnt denting the amount on the market fast enough to see the converters for sale drop in quantity any more. By the time I logged off for the night it was back up to 20k for sale and down to 12k bids. Yesterday they were up to 36k for sale and 10k bids.


    It would likely take 2-5 of us on a weeke day to clear everything out but I dont think it would last very long.

  7. Generally speaking ill buy 30-50 superpacks and use the ATOs from those to make back the cost of the packs plus some if i catalyze to superiors, essentially making any converters I get via reward merits from the packs "free". In instances where I'd buy the converters, id average out the cost over the 30-50 IOs im converting to know how much it 'cost'. Case in point, this morning I converted 40 def IOs into LoTG procs and decided to buy the converters. It cost me 600 converters or 15 converters on average per IO. If the cost to make the def set IO was around 1.1m and the converter cost was 1.5m, total cost was 2.6m. The LoTG proc sells for 6-8m so there is plenty of room to profit even if I had to buy converters and kept converting until I got what I wanted. Three is definitely potential to do worse if it takes more conversions but 15 converters seems to be the average I wind up with over larger sample sizes.

  8. If converters are free, then there is no cost but time. That is how I look at it and I regularly convert defense IOs to lotg procs (like 50-100 a day). It's definitely profitable to convert from out of set to the target set and the target IO or even in set to the target IO if you can get converters for free.
