What if?

Jita-market was cloned to all the empire capital systems?

As in, same market. Same items. In all four capitals, at the same time.

Would we have Jita scattered over four systems instead? Or everyone going to Jita out of sheer habit?

"It would ruin the economy"
I doubt it.

Then everyone would still just go to jita.

What'd be funny is if they deleted Jita and all the people who spend their average online hours there. That'd get rid of the problem. As soon as it happens in another system, delete them. People will soon realise, that they are whining about problems they cause, and will either stop whining, or stop going into that one system.

I'd go to Amarr. Amarr isn't as laggy as the other two.

actually I see the point if theres dedicated market hub systems in each empire which share the same market (outside of those systems you only see the normal regional markets) with a small service charge for buying from a hub market no matter the distance from where the order originated it would allow people to spread out more while not loose the advantage of a singular market. Its basically a variation on the constellation trading and interbus goods transport that was thrown up by the devs in a devblog a while back. Tbh I think this would be a better variation

except this would allow you to move stuff from 1 area of space to another without freighting the galaxy.

put a sell order up with your main and accept it 25 jumps away with a alt.

True but what ya gonna do sit here and put up with the lag or let something like that slip that you wouldn't notice probably as there's a high sec route between each empire capital anyway

I guess if you make all 4 Jita's the same region, and only those 4. Then there will still be a good market for traders.

But you will always be able to get one factions fuels, moon minerals, etc, to another region in a blink of a eye.

I don't see this hurting the game, maybe just making it easier. But others may find it cheating. Also I think CCP likes time sinks like that.


I am not quite sure what I think about the whole idea yet...

Also when you die and have your clone set at jita, what one do you go to. Same with autopilot... Confused

you want to nerf jita (or any system hub).

Simple write an algorithm which will start raising sales tax (brokers fees) within a system dependant on how many sales are taking place within that system against the regional average (probably filtering out low sec).

Add another statistics tool to the map so players can see market activity per system and then youll start seeing sales migrating out to lower used systems to get more profit due to reduced sales tax.

In then end what youll get is instead of 4 system hubs you'll have 4 region hubs

The more sales orders in a system the more each additional sales order costs? That would certainly remove hubs, but I don't know if that's a good idea. Maybe lag-tastic hubs aren't so bad.

Thoughts and concerns?

Try proposing a similar strategy on Wall Street.

I'm sorry folks, too many transactions here, we're upping the broker fees. Feel free to move down the street and trade there. Very Happy

Ya know what, never mind, I just found a dumber idea suggested in another thread. You're off the hook.

Signed in ten fold,

The last thing I want is needing to waste hours of roundtrips to get what I want. Occasionally getting black holed in Jita isn't such a big issue. That being said I do hope the next server upgrade, the one where they finally manage to use several servers for single starsystems, that it will improve. But that won't solve the problem since people just like the 1 stop buy stuff thingie and then fill her up again till breaking point.

Just replace the current position of Jita with other solar system and then connect that solar system with the new Jita being it a dead end.

every regions already has its own market hub just they arnt as packed or laggy as jita and sometimes jita prices are lower

the only reason jita is the worst of them is because its in caldari space and a lot more people live in caldari space then others

making jita clones will do nothing as long as caldari space is so much more populated
