I’m expecting the price to keep going up, and the weak bad players who can’t keep up have to make the choice, 1) leave, 2) get better.
I know most won’t get better, so they’ll eventually leave. Some will thrash around on the forums, facebook, and twitter, threatening CCP about how the game is going to die if they don’t get their cheap plex. Those bad players are already going around spreading rumors about EVE dying, lol.
My hope is that it goes up high enough that all the bad players leave. Then I’ll sit back and listen to the silence of the carebears.
You are not excused, because you fail to notice that it is a just couple of nattering nabobs of negativism who used to spam their butthurt in the Crime & Punishment forum and have shifted to rolling up new alts to post whine threads in General Discussion. Their posting style still gives them away.
They are not looking to make a positive contribution to the EVE forum and should be rightly called out on that.
What spike? Item prices will only go down as there’s more and more rorquals, just look at titans and supers. They’ve gone from hundredss/tens of billions for just an empty hull down to about 50b and 10b respectively. Prices will no doubt continue falling for a majority of eve’s items.
However, if you’re looking at plex prices, those will continue to rise because they’re not infinitely farmable like everything else. Gradually over time, as the isk supply increases people will sell plex at higher and higher prices.
Really? I been playing for a few years on and off. Overall numbers are up atm. Probably due to new content, but even before they seem to always be about the same for the years I have played. I’m sure nothing like the early years, as I was not present then I’m not sure how that compares.
As far as prices that will always be changing depending on the product. Has not effected my ability to earn isk with market play.
According to people on /r/eve and my own observations the amount of new players making threads there actually went up. I’m just not sure if that’s actually a good thing and hope it’s not just more and more farmers.
I was hoping nabob would carry a little more weight as an insult. Oh well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, insult is in the ear of the listener.
Anyway, to go back to on-topic-- yes, we need some charts, graphs, and diagrams about these exits numbers. If not available, then at least a forums poll to gather intel from the experts: “Are casual players leaving? Yes No Undecided redditing/waiting to see how other people answer”
