Hello CCP, I wanted to inquire about why the recent changes came to Tranquility where a significant boost for an unspecified amount of time to Small Ancillary Armor Repairers, were increased significantly from Pirate Faction NPC’s, and to ask why CCP is being vague in the time frame or the drop percentage change.
I’m asking this because just on the 12th I purchased 10 bpc’s that had 50 runs each from a very well known individual in the blue print channel, he was saving up for some time, it does make me wonder if he knew the changes were coming and offloading but that’s another story.
I had purchased these bpc’s expecting to make only 500k per run, to some that’s not much but to me it was a good guaranteed profit business decision. However just two days later I discovered the prices have literally been crippled by 40% due to a change that CCP implemented.
I’m sure I’m not the only person vested billions into these products only to face massive losses, and hoping for a market uptick once your “Mini event” ends.
My main question to CCP is why the secrecy behind how long it will last, shouldn’t we be allowed to know so we can anticipate the market? Also what’s the driving force, was it simply because CCP felt like more Small Armor Ancillary Repairers need to be in game? And if that’s the case shouldn’t CCP really make these notices a good two weeks to 30 days ahead of time so ALL players understand the changes and how it will effect the market, so they are not left wondering where 500 million isk went one day when they login to eve.
It also begs the question if it is about wanting more to be in game to drive the price down to match other ancillary repairers, why does CCP feel they have the right to do so? I know I know it’s your game, but it’s literally the current equivilant if God showed up one day and Told the planet, I’ve decided to introduce 40% more gold and it’s easily accessable, gold drops down to nothing over night, which is what has happened here.
I guess I want to know the motivations behind the change, why the secrecy in how long the mini event will last, and what increase percentage it actually was. Because right now the trend on the market going downward, will likely hit 1.5m before the week is out, from the 6.5m it was prior to this event and that means incredible losses for me, and I also want to know why CCP wasn’t responsible enough to announce something this massive (I know its not massive to you) but it is to many many explorers, why you didn’t announce it ahead of time? LITERALLY the only good thing from Null/Low sec data sites were these Ancillary Repariers, now we’ve to suffer with garbage and stick to just relics.
I highly recommend that you guys figure out how to make data cans better, The PoS’s bpc’s are old and expired, no one pays for them anymore, the meta 6-9 bpc’s have far few too runs and you find them far too commonly to have any value and are only found in sleepers.
Make Data Cans Great Again.
