    Hmmm... Inflation? Or there could be a group of very wealthy players controlling the market.

    From what I have heard, it's a group of wealthy dominating the markets over there.

    Yeah. Knew it. Wouldn't be surprised if they became wealthy from dirty sales.

    It's the fault of someone offering a lot more for certain items, like the ones above, because they wanted to obtain everything FAST. And the effect of said person's actions will most likely linger for a while.

    I hate to break it to you, but it's the same on Alexina (and I imagine every server); the AH is great for encouraging trade, but can also be 'fixed' very easily; a group of players can trade items amongst themselves for ridiculously higher prices, then quote that new 'average' price in the AH as precedence for trying to sell the same ware for much higher.

    Likewise, prices are almost always going up over time; it's very rare to see someone NOT try and sell a 2m item for 2.5m+ once all other instances of it are purchased.

    Edit: also, it can't be 'fixed' without continuing to be a laisseze-faire market; it's not entirely unrelated to why the 'Dead Bee' is 10k~100m, I'm sure...

    I think if game wealth was translated into real wealth, it would make all the world's billionaires blush.

    I say a very small group is controlling the small market. :)

    Exactly what is it. I used to be on Tarlach and I know exactly one of the people who control the market. They are not the only one obviously.
    Lol.

    This post is not meant to be a trollish, flamming or mean.


    I hate to be that person but, the Miners guild did this in the past and no one cared.

    Can I ask what changed ?
    Why do people care now ?

    They went on record and said they would fix prices and crash the market if we ever got a AH
    I was there when UTG laughed at them and told them go right ahead.

    I'm not hating on them at all ; I applaud them. Buying 57 bathrobes and another 47 robes the next day and fixing the price @ 750k~1m ea after buying them @ 300~450k ea ....... or buying and hording all the Crazy rich milletian heels and releasing them into gen pop when they feel like it.

    People are generally against being exploited, and are also generally powerless to stop it.

    I see your point. However, we see this in real life also and until people wake up and say enough
    we're going to see this far into the future.

    So repeat after me
    "all hail our corporate overlords"

    IE Apple, Google, Amazon, Samsung, Microsoft and Etc.

    I had to write a 40+ page in APA format for a final in corporate greed/waste (behavioral science)

    take Iphones > one they where about 199 USD
    now > 1,449.00 USD

    Your choice as a consumer is pretty much limited to 'give them money, or don't.'

    This isn't really a 'lack of action is allowing it to happen' situation; it's an unregulated market. If people stop giving money to the scalpers, they'll stop scalping.
