As it’s come to my awareness (with definitive proof) that a certain ISK multi-trillionaire market provider within many regions of New Eden is hiring a massive alliance (if not directly related to them) to forcibly eliminate all their market competition in High Sec, I’ve decided that I will now be using NPC stations instead for all my market orders.
The lowest you can get broker fees with any NPC station though is 2% .
I would like to suggest that it ought to be as low as 1% if not lower with appropriate standings.
Perhaps it can even be tied to the lowest rates that nearby player run markets are charging, yet still being a few tenths of a percent higher for someone with max standings.
In any event I’d rather give all my ISk away to NPCs than trash like the aforementioned person(s). So increase to 5% if you want, I stand by my principles.
Still, CCP should be more considerate to those who do and make NPC stations be more competitive. Unless you have some other plan to take down the one Eve market provider that intends on eliminating ALL the competition and becoming the sole market provider of Eve (Eve Walmart if you will).
No other large Null Sec alliances seem inclined to get involved in High Sec player market politics. And even if they did, we’d have player markets constantly going down, interrupting our ability to place and change market orders, and then completely cancelling them when a citadel is destroyed.
