# 1 dilithium exchange
01-14-2012, 06:19 PM
this is exchange is broken. the value is getting too dam high or to low depending how you look at it. 291 for cpoints are you kiding me? this means we are in a recession... what on a game. really. in real life and on a dam game. this needs to be fixed. i dont know what would work. but in the last 2 weeks it went from 430 dilithium to 291 this market is crashig and soon it will be worth less. CRYPTIC needs to fix it and fast. Please fix it.

but it's a player dictated system.
Prices are what they are due to players.
If the Dilithium to CP goes down, then the value of Dilthium has gone up.
Considering there are restrictions on pricing posts, no less 50, no more than 500, then the 291rD/1CP you posted would be near the mid point of 275/1.
Therefore the Dilithium and CP "values" are near equal or balanced.

Cryptic can't fix it, the market's basically going where it was in early December before the winter boxes created a huge new demand for C-points. I and others saw it coming.

Also, Dilithium value is rising, not falling - the same amount converts into twice the C-points it did a couple weeks ago. It's C-points that are falling, and like I said - many people saw that coming because with no winter boxes, there's no longer a bottomless pit for people to dump C-points into.

shouldnt that be a good thing? with the prices that 'low?' gives you a chance to get more points for stuff you want. and as said before, its player driven. would you like it to go back up to 490 dilithium per point as it was when the grab bags came out?

its not crashing. its fluctuating dependant on current supply and demand. it will fall until a point where people no longer want to sell c-points for such a low amount.

when something new in the c-store is released that makes c-points more valuable then the cost will go back up. if the item is extremely desirable it may even go back up to 500, then will fall again at a later point.

its doing exactly what its meant to be doing.

Correct, what you should be doing is saving your Dilithium and buying C points when you think the price for C points has reached bottom, this will be roughly just before the next must have item is announced on the C Store, the price in Dilithium of C Points will rocket, so at that time you can sell your Dilithium to get the maximum number of C points. Once that item is no longer required C points will drop again, just before they begin to drop you sell your C points for Dilthium and so the cycle continues. If you never actually spend either Dilithium or C points in time you will accumulate a great deal of one or the other, this is called playing the market and adds another dimension to playing STO which I enjoy.

What are the set limits? 200 to 1000? That would be the time to buy or sell like crazy, methinks.
