Server 1's economy is going down the tubes.

 

Dust of Card has fallen from 1 diamond each to .5 diamonds each.

Steel is 1 diamond each now.

Purple equips with a slot (unless they're accessories) don't sell on the market even when you put them up for 1 diamond.

Matyr Card is 1 diamond now.

Minorous Card is 1 diamond now.

Skel Worker Card is 2 diamonds now.

 

It's truly upsetting that everything that lower level or non-paying players can farm is now pretty much worthless. I used to think that I could make it in this game with hard work and perseverance, but now I'm losing hope.

The only thing that I feel I can do is sell my purple equips for zeny, and maybe then sell my zeny for diamonds, but even then zeny packs are falling in price on the market! Everything is becoming worthless... except maybe Ori/Elu, which I need to keep to make my equipment better.

I wonder if it will get worse than this...

The only thing worth farming is gold and steel. As players get to transcend they will need hundreds of steel and gold so keep farming.

We are in this situation because:

1. the game having a built-in Auto farming feature. So every player can farm any item they want - so why would they buy it from the market

2. The drop rate of low level items is high: Supply > Demand

 

However, this is not entirely a bad thing because lower price means you can buy more items with your Diamond. However, you need to acquire your Diamond through other method than selling items in the market, and by other method I mean buying it using $$$.

The law of supply states that the quantity of a good supplied (i.e., the amount owners or producers offer for sale) rises as the market price rises, and falls as the price falls. Conversely, the law of demand says that the quantity of a good demanded falls as the price rises, and vice versa.

Get level 100 and start farming abyss lake for halo fragments. Whales will be needing 57,510 of them to make rank 10 halos. Also gold and steel will probably keep value for quite some time.

Considering how expensive diamonds are, I'm not surprised people aren't willing to spend them.

Steel's price is falling dramatically, but at least gold is holding value... I'm worried that selling it will just put me at a disadvantage though, because then I won't be able to craft things down the line.

I guess that doesn't really matter though, because I doubt I'll ever get to the point where I can craft high-end items without dropping cash. At this point, with all of the terrible translation errors, random PKs by people who just want to grief for fun, and no hints on what might be added to the game next, I'm not willing to invest a dime in this game. Time, yes, but not money.

I ended up selling my Steel and Gold. The reasoning is, if everything is going down, they will probably only get cheaper from here. Might as well unload them now.

Hopefully I can buy a mount soon, that would be quite nice...

I'm dying here, these CMs are literally the worst. No communication, but they'll edit your posts. Aren't they supposed to be... I dunno, managing the community? Like a Community Manager?

Right now it seems like the community is pissed, and nobody is managing anything!

Oh man, guess we're in for quite a ride.

I  just don't understand why their communication would be so bad, don't they want their games to succeed? This game is going to die if there is no communication...

I feel they don't care much about the game die or not. Just make people donate money to get diamond as much as possible.

No. It's merely a case of having a surplus of farmable items that they cost less and less. Diamonds aren't inflated tho.

You go with the variant that everyone can use, aka Forum.
I have a lot of friends who refuse to ever touch Facebook.

Well, it looks like they have no intention to focus on the forums for communication and feedback. Guess it's use Facebook or deal with it? Should've had the PC CMs to manage the game instead of the mobile CMs.

There is very little interaction between the community and the managers in the Facebook page too. I'm having doubts about their real plans for this game.

Nobody on Facebook talks either, they just say "BUY DIAMOND!"  :wall:

 

Skel worker card is 1 diamond now.
Minorous card isn't selling for 1 dia, but rather 0.5 dia.
THE END TIMES ARE NEAR AHHHH
