20 minutes in a casual farm and u can buy 700 at that price.  I enjoy paying 1k or less as much as the next guy but even the seeded price for uncommons isnt very high.

And when you step out of that farm and pay the marketeer-driven prices, you'll be exhibit A of farmers ruining the market.

I havent farmed in probably over a year and even when i did farm it was probably only for an hour a month.  I meant to show that 10k is hardly anything.  Guess i could have went with run an ITF and you can afford hundreds at that price.

Sensing a pattern between this and Super Strength Rage. All of your problems seem easily explained away but some sort of mental block makes them still feel like problems.

 

I just upped all my bids from 5k to 25k. Pennies, so no big deal.

In this environment, the winning play might be to simply not play at all.  If you farm enough, you'll never need to spend a drop of influence, aside from burning 100M here and there on Superpacks to keep below 2BN.

Case in point.  Uncommon salvage prices spiking.  No reason.  Except some obnoxious buttface had nothing better to do than take a thousand character slots and max out each of their AH options for 10k bids on uncommon salvage

 

this crap adds nothing to the fame, is abusive, petty, and annoying.   
 

this crap redefines being a “petty” marketer 

 

Abuse should be identified and dealt with swiftly, Ban -> Account Removal

 

Anyone supporting abuse should similarly receive some 'contemplation time".

 

 

That said, with seeded items, determining what abuse is could be problematic.

 

If someone is simply buying and then sell in mass just below the seed price, a quick note from a HC team member could avoid escalation.

 

If someone is crafting in mass, well that's good for everyone, right?

Pretty sure Snark also complains that Blasters aren't all range-only characters and that recoloring powers to fit his concept isn't acceptable because those recolors don't translate into an "appropriate" damage type change.

 

A lot of his issues are self-inflicted and I can't tell if he actually enjoys it or not.

I am alone.  hmmm. scratch that.

 

I am utterly alone.  By the time you read this I will have shifted my focus to another of my pet peeves.

 

Yes, all of these issues are indeed important to me.  okay, yellow salvage is just fun to bitch about.  Heh, at least I never bought bitcoin.  sheesh.

 

Blasters are not Ranged.  Whoever said they were never played one.  yet there it is in the character creation screen.  THey were designed as close range damage dealers.  Bending them to fully ranged is like trying to get a boat to fly.  Its been done.  Its not winning any races or beauty contests.

 

rage crash on (all) Super Strength characters is so not comic book canon I want to drop a few pallets of comics on the orinal Devs heads.  (they obs need research material)

 

I run a Vampire.  No amount of recoloring water or earth blast is going to convince me those powers are death related.  hot and cold running blood but no neg damage?  pffft

 

I suffer for my art.  You should too.

Thank you both for self identification as people that spend hours of your time to make everyone else’s life harder.  

 

Correction: They spend their time gaming the system to become far richer than anyone ever needs to be. Folks do it in real life as well. I mean, c'mon, if people weren't running around artificially increasing the "worth" of things by grifting every system possible, everyone would have what they need. Can't have that happening now, can we? What fun is existence if you can't look down on the have-nots?

I hate those things but no more than I hate knowing my taxes go toward making rich politicians richer.

 

Edit: And don't even get me started on the grifting scams that are religion and insurance. It's a damn good thing we don't have base raids anymore. Can you imagine the insurance fee for automatic rebuilds?
