Thread: Selling everything

    I'm not going to do a knee jerk reaction and quit, as they've said they are still tweaking, but if this continues I'll likely end up packing it in. I capped my characters, which was my goal coming back last March after playing off and on since 95 and dozens of characters to middling levels, so perhaps it's time to call it a good run and to put my nostalgia away. I don't play to make a profit, but I'm also not going to throw thousands of dollars into DR books to get the gear I want. I have always sold just enough for cash to break even on my expenses, the rest I build up in gear.

    While Astrenoir may not be missed, I do believe others will be. But that is always the case in anything, especially a 30+ year old game. But maybe not, and perhaps this will be great for GS. Time will tell.
    Listen to what you’re saying though.

    You’re quitting because they are capping loot for sale for RL cash. This isn’t because your loot will be devalued in a in-game sense (in fact you’ll get a return after these changes) but because you can no longer sell in-game loot for cash.

    Again, you are quitting because you can no longer make money off the game.

    ...

    No no, again, you are quitting because you can no longer make money off the game.

    ...

    Yes, yes you are.

    Secondary market kept this game alive for YEARS.

    It is ACTIVALY an aspect of the game. One of the reasons it is so hard to quit is the intrinsec value of our chars and items. Admiting that is half the solution.

    Listen to the new Town square podcast, Wyrom was doing an interview. Basically, he said there hasn’t been these player population numbers since the GSIII/GS4 conversion.


    Listen guys...

    I’m sorry you lost part of your annual income with these new changes. But some of us are playing to actually play the game, not finance their ebay’d PS5.

    Seriously, this is good for the 96% of us.

    Oh the secondary market ain’t going anywhere. You just cant finance your home loan with it now. If you want to play one or two accounts for free, the silvers market will exist to support that.

    You just can’t pay child support with it now.

    I don't think it's even related to grouping. I believe they have linked multi-accounters' accounts and have set a cap applied to all of them. I have two basic accounts/characters, both capped, and one hunts for loot and the other hunts for exp. They both seem to hit some sort of soft cap after about a week or so. My estimate is that I get about a quarter of the loot from both of them as normal. I'm even getting about a quarter of the silvers for skins. I've never considered myself a silver farmer or even sold silvers before, so I'm not concerned from that aspect. However, the game just feels less rewarding now.

    It is 100% targetted as is by wyrom and al. They're betting people will rather buy directly from simu instead of farmers.

    Cause, you know, farmers having 200m+ gear that was farmed is bad. But if bought from simustore, it's good.

    And we're paying 15-40 per sub monthly LOL
