    I'm just guessing here, but Wyrom has stated several times they have a good idea how much bloodscrip is already out there and that prices are somewhat based on that. Maybe they've overestimated that, or it's just really concentrated amongst a smaller group of players.

    well certain people have been buying a lot. You do wonder how they set there prices sometimes. Maybe a dartboard

    So basically the majority of the cool stuff in the shop costs as much as a small used car.

    I sold my rotflareing nerve staff for 75m, which looking back, was way too cheap. But kind of puts it into perspective a bit. I know the value of a cert is higher since it means you can put it on anything but, 4x higher? Wow. And the fact that most of the cool stuff is valued at $2,000 USD and up....like who is this for? A little dissapointing tbh. At least last time they had more cheaper items available, maybe the prices will be adjusted before going live.

    Also i hope for us EU folk, the padding/weighting invites are randomized/automated, and not only happening on US timezones. I know i'm not the only one outside of US...
    Putting this into perspective, one could buy nearly 4 ounces of cocaine at current street prices in LA for the cost of one rot flair contract. I only use this comparison because of the irony and the fact that you must be smoking crack to come up with these prices.

    No, I play mostly during AUS times except for my days off. I'm not sure I'm worried about the padding services if the costs are proportionate to the few high end services.

    Time to due hooker and coke math (I'm not paying for rich mans hookers unless they come for free at the casino when I go to vegas).

    1 mid end hooker = roughly 800 per day according to backpage

    2 mid end hooker = roughly 1600 per day according to backpage

    coke (not sure but I'm sure prices have gone down since I last hung out with people who snorted that garbage) but lets figure another 100 on mid quality coke for 2 days and 700 for poor quality to keep them fueled up for 16 hours.

    So, we are up to 2400 dollars for a hell of a time you'll never forget (especially if you get the gift that keeps on giving).

    versus

    werds

    Ok, lets look at a low end hooker

    1 low end hooker = 500 dollars a night per night (max)

    2 low end hookers = 1k per night (max)

    coke 400 dollars of low quality coke (probably a large volume if you buy it from your local neighborhood sheriff who stole it from the evidence locker)

    1.4K dollars per night is your total cost

    2.8K to have two low end hookers do whatever you want for two days.

    Not the sexiest time in the world but,

    cost to corainsane relic is more expensive than 2 hookers that'll do everything you want

    also, putting the video of you up defiling the hookers on a porn site or cam site will net you money in ad revenue or video purchases, thus making a return on the moneys

    Alternately, you can go to the bar and pick up a couple of fat chicks at 2AM for a much lower dollar cost, but a much higher regret factor. Also, you'll have to call the police to get them to leave the house with their "overnight" suitcase

    (trust me, better to pay the hookers to leave than to pry a couple of fat chicks out of your house, it's easier on your reputation for people to know you bang hookers by choice than for everyone to know the swat team had to save you from fat chicks)

    The final tally in our is it worth the price of a hooker math says:

    Buy the hookers and pay them to leave or rent a airbnb in a different city using a fake name for a night on a temporary visa card from walmart and sneak out before the fat chicks wake up. Your chance of getting the gift that keeps on giving is the same either way.

    Except simu doesnt care about silver prices and they dont value off of that. the fact that silver has lost 50% of cash value over the last 3-4 years should tell you that. for a typical 250 scorer, 250k scrip is 1,000 runs or 20 books. Even if you are buying retail at 7.5m per book, thats 150m, not out of line with what people have paid for certs in game. if you're buying via simucoins thats $700 or 117m at 6 per.

    Rotflares are a bad example since they're crazy overrated for someone not super trained in necro. Thats why you see players with multiple rotflaring weapons who still suck at arena...they're basically status flares.

    HAHAHAHA your max is way above a low end hooker.

    I agree with you on everythign being too expensive. But your hooker analogy makes you sound like a creep. Just sayin.

    How is it creepy? Every woman I've ever met on 4 different continents has assured me her vagina is made of gold and has behaved like everyone wants to invest in it.

    Therefore, logically, the cost of a vagina must be equal to the cost of gold.

    However, every woman seems to rate the value of her vagina differently, which makes sense because there are 24karat, 12karat, 18karat, and gold plated (just to name a few) types of gold.


    Thus anything can be equated to the cost good by looking at the current market rates of hookers.

    Viewing the hooker exchange (backpage apparently) one can look at the going rates and determine the current market value of gold.

    Just remember to look out for the gold plated one thats priced like its 24karat.

    (I wish forging was faster, I have time to come up with stuff like this)

    We have ourselves to blame. We created the silver market. A lot of people have no problem dropping $100 on GS crap, for something special, $700 isn't out of the question. I'm guilty of this shit too. People love their hobbies.
