Edit sorry wrong thread

As of the last 24h ICY has become the only offshore market in the Forge with obvious implications and is charging 0.5% broker fees. Is this monopoly being maintained by force?

This has been the main plan all along, I suspect.

There will be plenty of short-lived 0.1-0.4% broker fee citadels that are planted over time chasing the PLEX trade. Each will take it over for a few days then go silent.

The only? I dont think you are looking very hard.

And what are these obvious implications? That you have to pay brokers fees just like you did before citadels?

You will find that the monopoly is maintained by force. And you are free to install your own monopoly by force whenever you choose, as is the nature of the game.

I assumed it was the only one at the time because i went down the plex buy orders and looked at which of those locations were charging <0.5% and there were none.

I believe all the organized hubs are .5 now. You will probably still get the randos that pop up they die in a week

Thing is, 0.3% will get much of the PLEX trade for much of that week and will easily cover the cost of an Azbel with a market.

I expect we will see a lot more randoms.

Well if they are spotted while anchoring. They could in theory only be online for 30 hours or so

This is true, assuming that there are people checking every single system in the Forge region (there are 93).

They used to have people keeping eyes on competing structures to see when PLEX sold and noting it in a spreadsheet.
