The price of ice used to be above 100k. The buyers know that most macro ice miners will sell thier ice for just about any price. They have gradually lowered the price to 75k. All macro and non-macro ice miners need to stock pile ice or place thier ice for sale on the market.

I know its not easy to turn down a quick profit but think of all the profits we can make if we stick together. My mining corporation is not going to sell its ice to a buyer until the price goes over 100k. I have turned down billions of profit over the last month but I dont care. Im tired of these ice buyers manipulating the ice market and I WONT TAKE IT ANY MORE!!

Then why should the buyers accept your attempt to manipulate the market?

There's been no serious manipulation of the ice market. It's just supply and demand. More supply as bots line up to sell to the highest bidder, and less demand since 0.0 doesn't have to POS spam to hold their sov.

Good luck getting the macro miners to join your boycott.

If you actually want to put a dent in the suply side of the market, get together with some other live miners and make a daily or weekly event of killing some of the bots.

I don't know where these vile lies come from. I haven't bought above 70k. And as anyone knows, ice prices are so low because we're hoarding robotics. The matter is out of my hands. Well, not really...

CCP is to busy banning and investigating trolls. I.E. me for botting than investigating real bots so there is really nothing you can do about rock bottom ICE prices as it basically takes 16 clicks of the mouse to mine ice for an hour.

You kinda need to be a mindless drone to harvest Ice for profit anyway.

It's become a sort of cosmic joke with the state of mining and ice harvesting. "Macro miners" are always over exaggerated and used as a scapegoat for a crap economy and lack of market integrity. Cool I see past these games.

Ah. A gentle reference to the next Hulkaggedon. Too bad that hulk prices droped by 10% during the last event and ice prices were unchanged. Yay, Hulkaggedon.

They banned an obvious troll(you) from an ingame help channel, and based on your forum behavior they had a good reason for doing it. The best part is how you aren't at all bitter about the *****slap you got. You just took the predictable punishment for your trolling like a man and laughed it off. A lesser person would have gone crying and whining about it on the forums like a little girl afterwards.

You're asking the macroers for support when it's the macroers fault that prices are so low?

Go gank a few dozen macromacks if you want to do some good.

Try petitioning the macro miners.

I've heard of market bots being disabled for "investigation"

Try macro miners too.

There are no bots. Ask CCP. They'll tell you.
