Bad juju lately

I've been seeing a lot of pretty negative energy lately on these boards.

 

I think that it's time that everyone came together and teamed up against the common enemy -- the ebil marketeer.

Thought experiment.

 

Start with your thousands of rare salvage as a buffer. Creep bid up buying out all the current postings below 999,998 and add to you stash. Repost them (as many as you can manage) at 999,999.  Put in tens of thousands of more bids to buy at 999,998. Relist everything at 999,999. Yes, you lose your market fee on every transaction. But! Wentworth's Rule Number Zero: People are Dumb. Many will bid over a million trying to make sure they get a buy. I promise they will. A lot will. Maybe enough to cover your market fees! :O

For quite some time, someone(s) has been doing exactly that with yellow salvage.  Bidding massive quantities at 1,001 and flipping it at 1,002.  I presume that it’s meant to be a fast way to get the Power Seller badge on a bunch of characters.

The problem with dealing with salvage is it is seeded. It would require more clicking than I want to suffer with. Further, it disturbs our own kind, the marketer, and the players savvy enough to realize crafting is cheaper than buying the IO "now". 

True disruption would be to join forces and just buy everything. Leave no uncommon or rare IO in the AH. Literally buy them all. It would take a long time for one player, but for a dozen focused marketers, buying all of them and placing 10M bids for each one that subsequently is placed for sale...how long would be be able to sustain it, and what would the reaction from the player base be? 

I often sat upon my big stacks considering buying every pvp recipe in the AH, regardless of the cost. And over-bidding for subsequent listings to ensure I had all the new listings so that the only way to get them would be to buy the ones in place, or use merits to get them. But, inf in the hand is worth 2inf in the bush, right?

If someone posts a reply quoting me and I don't reply, they are most probably on ignore.

Some of them even know that I have them on ignore.

But that won't stop some of them from bullying and harassing people, because some of them love to do it.

It's who they are. There is a group of them that have banded together to do it. They think that it is acceptable.

Ignore is a tool to improve your gaming experience. Don't feel bad about using it.

This is also an interesting plan. It might push the going price for PVP IO's up over the Merits+Crafting equivalent in Inf. Again, because many people are dumb/lazy, and would pay it because merits are hard, or they didn't know, or something.

There's a convenience and time factor to getting something ready to slot now.  But that varies by individual the closer you get to merit "cap" price the more you lose but the last few stubborn (or lazy & rich) folks might pay slightly above merit value for the convenience of NAO.

They temporarily closed the thread. Now what do I do? 

I know!  And I just finished a round of testing under different parameters.  Though I need to check the methodology and probably need to run a few more times to check results.   Right now I have AE producing 2x influence for same effort/time not taking in consideration selling drops.  Mission from AE & outside AE showed about the same drop rate, so for comparison, drops can probably be ignored.

 

Repeated this a couple times:

Council Mission in PI that took about 15 minutes

Ran fifteen minutes of AE Mission #50311

Last time I ran, each had about 160 kills, so I think the EBs in the AE boosted the inf the most.

 

Neither would be suitable for an AFK run
