    Let's find Sean2 and some carnies and let them all go at it.

    Those 99 booklets sold out in under a half hour. Poof, there goes 1 billion silvers from the game forever.

    I believe 2 billion a month was the magic number Wyrom gave us for silvers entering the game. Looks like he found the silver bullet for the silver drain, so now they can't use that excuse anymore.

    It can't be that low, not going by the other figures Wyrom has given us. He said last year's auction removed 14 trillion from the game, at 2 billion being generated a month that would take 7000 months to create just the silvers that was drained from that one event.

    Even at 2 billion dollars a day being generated it would take over 16 years to create those 14 trillion silvers.

    The more I think about this the more I'm convinced Wyrom either pulled that 14 trillion figure out of his ass or he read the number wrong and read 140 billion as 14 trillion or something.

    Even assuming that one event took 3 years worth of silvers out of circulation that's still about 13 billion silvers a day on average is being generated.

    Just offer the books for silvers for 24 hrs. I bet a lot of silver would get drained, then reevaluate after 24 hrs.

    It wasn't open for a half hour and sold out.

    This is pretty much the fix. Nobody's bank account will be able to sustain buying books for 10m over and over.

    Let the first X days of DR be Simucoin only as an extra incentive for people throwing money at Simu or something, but books for silvers should be a permanent option and seems like it would fix a number of both new and old issues with the economy.

    Think Methais hit the head spot on. This was massive silver removal in like 1 hour.

    An idea, why not have an alternate form of books call it ingame "soiled torn book". It lets you in the arena but not for the full run, maybe an overall net of 150 BS per perfect run. These sell for 10 mil silvers at any amount. Likewise you could do books of 30 for 10 mil. These could also be extended to digs and 'slot machine' events where the tokens are impure and will only give you 7 searches or digs etc.

    Furthermore, if you try to exchange these books with anyone they tatter and disintegrate.

    The lower quality book for silver is a good idea. Still incentivizes simucoins but gives players a means to access the event, albeit inefficiently.

    Wyrom edited his post, he said he had an extra zero on the ends of his numbers or some such.

    I believe his edited amounts came out to be (going from memory): The auction removed 14billion (give or take) and EG removed 100million.

    Going from the Grand Auction 2016 on gswiki (https://gswiki.play.net/Great_Auction_of_2016), if you add up all the items on the list it's almost 12 billion. I'm not sure if that is every single item sold at the auction, but it's the only list I know of.
