What do you think would happen in the marketplace if you had to change the per item price of your market order by a minimum of .5%? One of the things that always bothered me about industry is selling my own merchandise. Of course I had to monitor my orders regularly and beat everyones price. Sometimes by .01 isk. It doesn’t really make sense that we’re able to do that, or that people would always go for the lowest priced item, even if they were only saving .01 isk on items that cost millions of isk. It is human nature I suppose.
So what happens if the minimum price adjustment is .5%? People would put up new orders that beat the current orders by .01 isk for sure. But when you beat their price it would be a significant change. This exchange of price adjustments would only go on for so long before one party decides to stop.
I should have prefaced this by saying that this is just “an idea”. I’m not supporting this idea by claiming it as the perfect solution. The constant .01 isking in the market is a silly thing that I think we should all admit.
