Lobt to Latinum Conversion
 
Could there be added a Ferengi Vendor that can Convert Lobi to Latinum and Vice Versa? Maybe have it 100 Latinum for one Lobi, and One Lobi for 75 Latinum.

Likewise, could there be an easier and more direct way to convert EC to Latinum. It should be of a rate much lower than if a player plays Dabo. Perhapse 1,000 EC for one Bar. In any case, the return should be no more than half from Dabo.

That'd be awesome. And that's why they'd never add it - you could make lobi without having to pay real money.

Can easily see them doing lobi to latinum, but not latinum to lobi. Also some of us have over a million latinum available so a 1:1 conversion rate is impossible. They might do a 10,000:1 conversion rate. So having a million latinum would only give a hundred lobi.

I think a Lobi to Latinum would be perfect, it would give people a way to get Lobi items w/o spending real money.

I agree with Starkaos, a 10,000:1 conversion would work.

Another idea is having a Lobi crate offered in the Latinum store. Make it 100k Latinum and have the crate yield anywhere between 1-10 Lobi crystals. Make the crate unbound so people who don't want Lobi and have an insane amount of Latinum can sell them on the exchange.

That would be a great way to convert. I never said it should be a one to one. The whole idea is that a certain quanity first converted from one to the other, then converted back would loose some value in the process so that it would have a depreciation rate around 10-20%. With a Lobi crate in the Latinum Store, then the Lobi vendor could also convert the Lobi directly into Latinum without the need for a second contact doing the opposite.
