The only thing about the exchange I don't like is the fact that only shows that small bracket of exchange rates. To become a true, player-controlled market, we should be able to see the whole range of offers, from 50 dil/zen up to the 400 (?) dil/zen cap at all times.
Other than that...love it. Bought myself a bunch of stuff on the zen-store which would have taken me 2-3 times as long a few months ago.
The only point to having more than the current winning-bid price displayed for each side is to get a sense of which way the preponderance of supply is nudging the market.
I'm just about out of C-store stuff that I really want to buy. I mean, I cold probably casually grind up a Vesta set in this dil economy, but I don't want one. Maybe start another KDF char and use the Nausicaan ships or Orion ones...
Well its official only a complete idiot /total newcomer would trade zen at this price
so dilith is now worthless
Or someone with lots of money and little time. Incidentally that is the kind of customer that F2P MMOs love to have. Someone who places a high value on their free time and is not adverse to spending lavishly on their hobbies. Not to mention the appreciation they deservedly get from their fleet if they dump it all into the starbase.
Sadly, players that are neither whales not zero cash F2P'ers are the ones that will be unsatisfied with the current system. Because value is relative and they find themselves on teh wrong side of a constantly moving curve. To all such players the only advice anyone can give you is to transition to full F2P mode and simply accept the game offers too little value to YOU for what you used to pay... but its still a GREAT value if you aren't paying for it at all.
A group of speculators (numbering in the dozens not the thousands) are scamming the hell out of the exchange
This is why it needs to be FIXED
iron clad and locked down
OR auto convert any stockpile of Dilith over 1 million into zen at the going rate and any stockpile of Zen over 20,000 into dilith at the going rate
OR allow a person to EITHER buy or sell zen in any 48 hour period
or both such options
or perhaps a 20% tax on profits
Its a bad thing to do, and without any proof.
