Sorry?

 

What they're saying is they're putting up a "fake" buy price in order to manipulate the market.

 

For example, let's say you're buying Chivalry Emblem at 200k a piece.

 

But you only have 100k.

 

The vending is still listed on the shopping board, but you cannot do a transaction with people.

It's an easy way of artificially lowering the market prices. Everybody selling X thing at 400, so you put the item at 200 (but nobody can actually purchase it) which in turn makes people cut the prices to compete with this new lower value.

Hello,

Please do not use the forums to call out users for possible in-game misbehavior, therefore the image has been removed.

As for the issue, the shop has no empty bottles. Now, we don't know what happened there, could be that they sold or the boards has glitched out. The shopping boards script is hardcoded so it is not easy to check how it actually works.

 

 

Edit:

Discussing this with RO1 staff, so here's the thing about vending, offline vending and live vending are handled differently. There's a big chance delays may occur when it comes to boards updating active vends, likely the live vending being lagged a bit. If not, could be a new bug.
