Here is another way to look at this. If PWE sells keys at a relative value of $1.25 per key, and EC farmers can re-sell those for a relative profit of $2.00, it means that for each key sold PWE is losing $0.75 in potential profit.

It seems to me farming in this case should be perfectly fine. If PWE improperly valuates their own merchandise it's only common sense that someone else will pick up on that. If you are a car dealer selling something way under invoice, only to have someone buy it up and re-sell it for profit, that's your fault not the re-seller.

Instead, PWE should be making up the difference by raising the cost of the keys. That eliminates the EC farmer's profit margin and gives the extra profit to PWE instead.
