Surge of UU prices

Post by Keinutnai on Sat Mar 10, 2012 12:03 pm

Well this is interesting. The 7-day UU prices jumped from rather stable 350-375k price band to 435k, and they are still increasing. Probably they will do so until they reach 450-500k. What I find interesting is that UU prices don't increase gradually like attack turn prices for example, but they tend to increase in substantial jumps. I still remember some of the prices/price bands that were able to hold out for months without change. 90k, 200k, 250k-300k and now 350-375k.

What do you guys think will be the 7 day average prices of UU on 1st of April?

I make a guess at 450,000 per UU.

Not sure.
But the uu market has been thin.
Thats what happens when people have a "just grow" attudtide.
I have all but stopped playing, just as others have so they dont really sell anything like we used to.
Incomes and farmin have out grown the games market limits.
There could be more for sale if sts werent an issue or things like hit policies werent around.

Well Sea, as small as the player base is its easy for 1 or a few of the biggest accounts to drasticly effect the market, UU prices specificly. All you need is a few trill laying around to buy up all the deals and then repost the UU for a higher price. I'm sure with a bit of teamwork prices could be driven to 500/750 fairly easily with the stagnet market and low playerbase.

I hope this new surge of incoming players will help the situation, but it will take a bit of time for them to get up to speed.

Before the delay was added to the game, 1 player could "play" the market. Now it takes 2 maybe 3. But its not hard to say the least

But it will take months until the new players grow to a substantial size, and it will also take half a year for most of these guys to get SS without help. Our alliance for example has a program that helps players to get SS. It has sofar provided SS to 6 people, and that's an accomplishment, afterall 6 SS cost 9,000-12,000 gold to obtain! It will basically take about half a year for most of the new players to influence galactic market.
