Well, it does change that CCP can change something not real (ISK) into somethink real (Kronors)

Players buy GTC with real money in order to

1) Play the game
2) sell to make virtual moneys

If CCP were to buy up GTC, it would aritifically be increasing demand, making the price of GTC's go up (in ISK). This would make GTC's more valuable ingame, creating incentive for more players to buy GTC's to sell for ISK.

I'm not sure, but I think the roids are in on the conspiracy.

After all, to combat the massive ISK inflation, resources, such as minerals, will need to also be expanded to keep prices down.

There will be roids everywhere.

To all you who are saying that them doing this would ruin the economy. I am not necessarily saying they are buying up almost every PLEX or GTC that hits the market. Say for example they bought 2 everyday, that would be over 700 plex, or about $12500 USD or so. Which I agree with those who are going to tell me that $12500 is nothing to CCP. But this is just an example, and that's $12500 of completely FREE money for CCP. Completely free, basically they would just be selling ISK for money.

If it were done on this small a scale, it would not even touch the economy. But those who argue that GTC and plex would be incredibly highly priced if CCP did this, all I have to say is that for the last 8 months GTC, and PLEX, since their introduction have been on a steady rise in price.

Then you have to consider, does CCP really care about the ingame economy? It suffers from inflation as it is, which is just continuing to drive up the price of GTC, which works in CCPs favor. (the more GTC/PLEX are worth, the more incentive to buy) Then as this increased supply hits the market, CCP can just buy them up to stop prices from dropping. CCP can completely regulate the GTC market if they are the majority buyers of GTCs.

All I'm really suggesting is that CCP have ingame, a method for them to basically sell ISK to players. In a way that disguises it. I'm disappointed to see CCP take a thread like this so lightly and troll it like they have and would prefer to see a proper statement from CCP.

However with all that isk coming into the market form nowhere, the amrket would crumble
You mean just like the ISK that comes from missions and transporting NPC goods and ratting? Yeap, looks like the same thing to me.

They would lose many of the players or at least the alts of the players who play using GTCs. While this would free up server resources, it would shrink the playerbase which may be bad in the long run.

You seem to think I'm saying CCP is buying EVERY single PLEX/GTC that hits the market. That is not at all what I am saying. Only that they are buying a majority or at least some of them.

Yeah, you can tell a similar story. This drives PLEX prices up so it drives the player who is on the margin out of the market, reducing playerbase size.

Based on the way PLEX and GTC continue to rise anyway, and player base continues to grow daily, I don't think your argument holds water. CCP could essentially keep the market at whatever price they want to. Maximizing profits, while also maximizing player base.

At times it is drunk as a "chaser" after sampling "hákarl", which consists of putrified shark meat, to mask the meat's taste."


So, I guess, the naked dancing volcano isn't the worst of it.


I refused to try hakarl, which is better known as "pee shark." We had a mission that was to eat hakarl and drink brennivin near the bathrooms at the Fanfest. The smell was exceptionally overwhelming. Needless to say, my bathroom trips were infrequent. And quick.

Really? I never noticed anything Confused

Why would CCP possibly want to spawn gametime and essentially give it away? You are missing the point of this thread entirely. They aren't just trying to hoard up the PLEX because they want to see a large number of them in their hanger, your post would be correct if this were true. They spawn the ISK, to buy the PLEX that they sold for REAL MONEY. Therefore they are selling gametime, for real money, then buying it back with something they can get for free and never use it. Now you have vast amounts of gametime being bought and never used. Which means massively more profits for CCP.

Yes and because it was near the bathrooms at the bottom floor, that allowed the smell to go up via the stairs to all the other floors above.
That way everyone could smell it :)

instead of how it was the year before when (i guess it was the same smelly stuff) it was at the top floor.

CCP could even go as far as to use a name that would resemble a macro-miner. And when the process the macro-miner banning batch. Ban the account with all the PLEX in its hanger and call it a macro-miner, and no one would question it. Meanwhile they are effectively removing the game time from the game in what looks like a completely legitimate fashion.

Not only that, but they could dance naked on an icy volcano while eating whale flippers!

When will it ever end?

Shocked




we don't eat whale flippers.


Can you respond to the OP?



We don't eat whale flippers, seal flippers, or scam GTCs and PLEXs.

the naked dancing volcano thing? totally true, tho


He, he.

Sense of humor for the win!
