Weirdness with "Preemptive Optimization" prices


Recommended Posts

This is one of the new sets I believe.  So I found a few and wanted to sell them...looking at the Last 5 prices was confusing.  For days and days, there were sales for 1 and 1.1 million interspersed with sales for 10 and 11 million.  It looked like "extra zero" typos, but it kept happening.  I decided to hold on and not sell.  Finally it settled down to 1-1.1 million this weekend.  Figuring I'd missed out on the freak overpayments, I listed one for around 1 million...and this morning it cleared for 10 million.  The Last 5:  11.1 mil, 1.5 mil, 11.5 mil, 0.5 mil, 11.5 mil, all today.  Is there something I'm not getting about this buying behavior or this set, generally?

I played around with this when it was first released, and mostly rejected it.  It's similar to Efficiency Adaptor, but clutters up the End Mod 21-50 range when you are looking for Performance Shifters.


But specifically to your concern, this is almost certainly due to the notorious display bug.  I took a look a few minutes ago and found the following two listings:






I don't think either of these displays are true, and certainly don't represent where you should expect to buy or sell these.

Yeah no way this is real.....

That one can probably be explained by someone just adding an extra zero to a purchase order. I've bought several of those recently for 5.5 million so adding a zero to that would get the results you posted. I don't think I've ever noticed what I would consider display bug issues with LoTG: Global Recharge and given the market traffic associated with that particular enhancement I have a feeling it would have been widely reported if it was buggy.


To the OP's issue, here is some light reading on the matter:



When the new sets hit the test server I was gathering info about the recipe components and noticed the display bug was impacting a few of the enhancements/recipes, including the Preemptive Optimization: EndMod/EndRed enhancement posted above. I posted a couple of screenshots towards the end of that thread I linked. I'd guess that that Preemptive Optimization: EndMod/EndRed is sharing pricing history with a recipe.

Ah Basilisk's Gaze, my old friend! I see the 'Last 5' display bug in plenty of places, but this is the single place where it 'bugs' me more than any other. This is not a niche where I typically work, but the 2, 3 & 4-piece bonuses are so good that these should always fetch 2M+, no matter what the bug (or cheapskates) say!!
