Lazy and rich = Capitalism. Do smart investments or just enjoy life if you're sure your wealth is big enough to last for the rest of your life *Screw kids. They're useless -> You're single*

 

Hard-working and poor = Capitalism. Success is the prize of your hard and smart work *Stares at those East Asian immigrants who came to NA with just mats to slee and now they make the highest average income*  :heh:  :heh:  :heh:

yea, those who still invest daily into this game are the real loseres soon when they just close it...hahahaha. because all the stuff you talk doesnt help a newbie (lol do they even exist?) to casual (lets say people who play on iRO for max 2-4 years) at all and wont make them scout ragial 12hours a day  to "buy stuff cheap blablabla" w/e crap u said. Even getting your first b without spending $$$ is borderline retarded because you cant just "farm instances" 3-5 h/daily for months hueheuhuehuehueh.

 

I can confirm the hiatus theory why the prices increase like that, I got 10-15b in gear on my acc rotting since last years mob scarf OCP that didnt get me one in 250bucks, if they reimplement it for a FAIR chance I might play a bit again, at this point maybe not.

I miss the days when even an enriched event would stir up the economy with a lot of assets/zenies circulating. We need more events/content that would encourage spending.

The lack of WPE seller will have a series of consequences....some are happening.... some are moving under table... after next OCP, the full picture should be all on the tables...  AS trader, we will soon find out who is naked under sun.

Most OCPs are crap. To be honest ...

My PvM RG only default 2 OCP items: Tengu set. Occasionally, I use EDA when Incubus pet doesn’t leech enough SP.

My WoE RG also uses only 2 OCP items: Mob and BSG.

And so far, we have 14 or 15 OCP boxes. I mean can we have real OP game breaking items in Cash shop that worth spending money on? Game is too much F2P xD

I’m not sure why would anyone need to buy WPE. For VIP?

What lol. I really disagree, I think the game relies way too heavily on cash shop as is (this is coming from a fairly big spender on WPE). 

 

50% def / mdef piercing items have been added recently, which is good for about 80% of classes and in some (most) cases are better than literal god items. Mob scarf is certainly best in slot unless you use tengu set (another ocp item). For armors, FDA, EDA are best in slot if you're not using a flattery/abusive. For garments, I'd say about 50% of classes if not more use FAW or deviant etran's.

 

That said, I enjoy them being added to the game as it mixes things up, I just wish that most of them didn't require upgrades to be useful because it just promotes more use of WPE which seems excessive. I'm fine with certain ones needing it but it feels like everything that is a slot that CAN be upgraded needs to be to achieve it's use. 

 

I also think that to address the topic at hand..

 

There's something going on besides big players quitting and getting an influx in the economy. Mob Scarves have gone from ~1.5 to 3.5 in the last 2-3 months. Tengu has done something similar, FAW from 600-900 easily, cursed frags, consumables (slims, ygg seeds, strawberries) have all doubled at least (ygg seeds have almost gone up 500%+). I think there's either a new way to dupe zeny or items, or there's some new way that's much more cost efficient for botters. There's just too much zeny coming into the game. Even the spam messages I get via mail for zeny selling have dropped from ~$40 a bil to ~$10 a bil in the last few months lol.

Actually 50% MDEF piercing item(magician's gloves) was added a long time before 50% DEF piercing item(blacksmith's gloves). The magicians gloves were also a lot more common in its OCP box compared to the rarity of blacksmith's gloves, and theres a good reason for this.

Totally understand that, I'm just saying that there's a lot of cash-shop items that have drastically the landscape of both pvm and pvp.

Oh yeah I forgot FAW. Well .. I'd rather have OP items obtainable via cash shop rather than via in game. All loots that can be farmed from instances sell for nothing. In fact only few MvP cards are worth buying and other MvP cards are crap. Old players or vets run tons of characters to farm and try to hold the market power, saturating market so quickly. 

 

Moreover, WoE is dead. That's the mark of game death. Now PvM, everyone who play Gen or GX or WL can farm easily i.e they're efficient. Anybody who doesnt want to re-roll and invest resources can just quit because they're inefficient.

 

Cheap WPE sellers also have quit. Now players cant buy 1k WPE for less than $10. I've never done this but I was told from South American players that it could go as cheap as $5. PvM players who farm zeny most efficient get to stay. Those who farm zeny less efficient get forced to quit because they cant afford a high price of WPE. It will only go up.

 

It's unfortunate that they need to put good items in cash shop to get people to buy. Though game used to be P2P and it even went by minutes i.e 30 online minutes game card, unlimited 2 days game card, etc but that didnt work out. If no good it ems in cash shop to encourage spending money in game, game would of shut down long time ago when the game became F2P.

cash shop should be only services and consumables imo, and such gears could be available trough events or quests, i think this way those who wanted to avoid the grinding for some materials could do so, the way the current refinement system is, if you could directly sell everything required to refine would still be profitable imo. By needing various players to gather gear trough quest you would guarantee some reason to play and keep the player base growing, although i think this timeline would only be possible if the game was actually p2p, the grinding factor should be for experience only, the current model of grinding everywhere makes things really repetitive and boring to do. At least for me getting super lucky usually leaves me disgusted since it usually comes in the worst times (like getting trash cards which have a 0,02% chance to drop ¬¬'), and don't get me started about sky fortress weapons...
