@AngryRhombus563 said in AC scratch every 2 weeks is great.:
@Zenny You say a lot of "probablies" without actually checking or providing proof.
Well I don't play on the JP server here and I don't plan to just to prove a point that is obvious.
I mean you checked yourself and basically just showed that JP has more stock for scratch items than NA. If there is more supply than meets demand then that is something that contributes to a price drop.
At this point it's just logical thinking. They definitely don't have meseta being injected into their economy like we do. If they did their prices would be fucked, just like ours are right now.
Red boxing was banned and the meseta gained through it was removed, thats not a factor.
You are delusional if you think people are still not doing this. So what if a couple people get banned here and there? Even if the players stop, goldfarmers wont (though I'm sure they have even better means to earn now). Hilarious how you even try to say it's not a factor as so many have gotten away with it and kept their goods. Sega hasn't resolved the problem at all. The damage has been done.
NA don't rapidly buy meseta from RMT, and even if they did that is perfectly illustrating the increased greed of NA people, adding on lazyness.
Load of shit but ok. People buy gold because it's cheaper to simply buy gold to pay for goods than to scratch as buying gold lets you pay for what you want rather than dealing with rng through scratching and other means resulting in spending way less. I mean, lets be real here. Would goldsellers continue to sell PSO2 gold if it wasn't being bought? They treat this game like a business. If they continue to earn money, they'll stick around. If not, then they'll move to something that will.
All just excuses to justify one side pricing things higher than the other. You'd say the same things about JP datacenter vs NA datacenter in FFXIV even tho they are at parity in all things including RMT and gather/crafter bots, even tho you can observe the same price differences as shown. Its always the increased greed of western mindsets.
I play on a JP datacenter and this doesn't seem to be the case? Prices are actually more expensive on my server compared to the western ones.
Now, you cant even include all of the east as "not as greedy" because clearly there is only one tiny country included in the east in this particular scenario, but Global unfortunately has "all but that country" to deal with, so even if your particular region doesn't tend to have increased level of greed, areas that do are included. Regardless of what you want to believe in this, "Global" has higher levels of overall greed that that tiny country when it comes to the markets of MMO's. Always been that way. hate the idea if you want.
What has greed got to do with anything in the current situation? When you have shitloads of meseta injected into the economy through botters and people doing weeklies/red boxes on alts this is what you get. People aren't running a charity. If there's demand for something and people are willing to pay the price that will be what it is worth. The thing is, people are more willing to pay absurd prices when they can continually farm meseta or buy meseta is large amounts from goldsellers.
They can eliminate RMT (but they really cant, not even on JP), and they can take away red box meseta and the results are exactly the same. They are just convenient excuses now. Its just the general placing a higher value, and sometimes an excessive value, on ones belongings.
Excuses lol...you are dead wrong here. I brought up Cradle from base PSO2 because it's pretty much evidence of what happens to the market when shitloads of meseta is injected into the economy.
The prices only started getting stupid in NGS when more people hopped on the red box farm. The goldseller prices also dropped to crazy low levels at one point. It was basically 1 dollar for 1 mill. Put that into perspective. I could get a popular female hairstyle for 5 dollars at current prices if I were to buy gold rather than scratch 30 times to get a ticket to get it.
