What? I know heaps of players who buy AC items to resell later, and not a single one uses RMT. Theirs very likely hundreds if not thousands of players that do the same thing.
I don’t even know if the RMT bots would even be buying AC items to resell later has they are all about shifting mesta as fast as possible, and you generally need to hold on to AC items for months
There are people holding individually over 100million meseta in items already in their shops. Please explain how they got 100million in a week old game without buying from RMT bots.
Regardless, reselling is a shitty act which causes long term no turn back issues with the whole market.
Just because they got items listed for that amount, doesn’t mean they spent anywhere near that in mesta, or that people are even buying them at those prices. Atm featured AC items are selling for 500k each, so any AC items they have listed higher than that is way overpriced. If you’re talking about normal items has well like weapons with valuable fixa skills, they could have farmed them, or kept an eye on the market and brought cheap ones when they came up and relisted them for the price they want, but again just because they’re are listed for those prices doesn’t mean people are buying them at those prices, and while they may have ‘100 million’ in items in their shop doesn’t mean they spent anywhere near that to get them, or that the value of these items are worth anywhere near that much.
Limiting re-selling of AC items would in all likely not do much to stop the prices of popular AC items going up. One of the reasons people buy these items is to sell them, and one of the main reasons people buy them is to re-sell them later. If people can’t do that, then they’re will be less people buying the items from other players, which will in turn mean less people will buy the items from AC scratch because less people will be able to sell them, and the supply and demand will settle to a new normal. But here’s the thing the stock on these items will eventually run low and theirs nothing to stop the people who originally brought the items holding onto them for months to sell for the exact same high prices, and their will be people that do that, so you’ll still basically end up in the same situation, the only difference being that overall less people buying AC scratch and sega making less money in the process, and the only people who would be able to make mesta of these items would be the original buyers.
Theirs better ways to manage inflation in the game, like balancing the mesta being created ingame, to the mesta sinks taking mesta out of the game, has how much items go for in game is directly tied to how much mesta is in the game. And regularly bringing back popular AC scratch items on a regular basis so they don’t become too rare.
