I thought about replyin to this for lots of reasons over past few days, and I wanted to disagree and say "you can do it!" about goin to get yer own pieces to make fsoa, or dark shart of ling (the reason death lotus stay in barrels), but... actually... I agree.

I found and sold a blood dye for 3b maybe 2 yrs ago? Now its 6b!? argh. Yeah I looked cause I want to blood dye the glaesword. Now I might not. 6b is a lot. Geez.

The mad hats and their price fixing is one thing, but... woo... I wish I could say I knew what would happen if they raised the cap on our coin pouches and GE. I know the mad hats would roar again just like when they got news they had to vacate fally gardens. I think it'd make certain things more expensive for a minute, but it might just end their price fixing conspiracy too.

Imagine "item discussion" with NO price fixing threads at all. Imagine it was just a place where people debated stuff like "blowpipe vs decimation" and made argument like... throw applies poison and arrow has 3 more squares of distance it can attack from. In order for that to happen I would have to be able to search GE like ebay for "blood dye" and see how many have sold, when, possibly to whom, for how much, etc. Right now only Timbo can see that, and he is the only guy who can adjust GE prices... like the shard is some silly amt GE mid like 130m and it should be 1.3b right? Timbo will shove that correction thru in a few days, and he left it low... because... idk. it doesnt drop for coinshare people, so idek why its like that. sigh.

any of these make sense the GE mid value is low at release. kinda.

caveat: I do not mean, ever, that you should be able to search GE and see something like "j.r. kerr sold 300 water talismans at 1k gp ea" but more like "300k water talismans sold to members, 30k sold to pmods, 5k sold to free players, 30k were sold by free players, 300k were sold by members" etc. its kinda like that at ebay. you can't see the name of the highest bidder, but you can see their feedback parenthetically noted next to their asterixed out name, and this informs you if the sale went to a high flow flipper type, or to a real person.

there are structural reinforcements for this.
remember I mentioned "mad hats" right?

well... we have a load out for their "riot" under "sailing."
thats kinda weird cause we're allowing this brainwash to happen... like... the most effective way to protest is to tell everyone to log in, or... and I hope you get my drift because by no means am I trying to start anything.

I just push back on price fixing if it starts to mess with slayer. thats my thing. as long as slayers can do their thing then I will stay unrebellious with my bread and circus (hobbes leviathan).

I mean yes fashionscape is endgame. It matters. I aint sayin cosmetics arent good. They are really good. On slayer task though... it matters more if yer title is acheivement based like... warden, the elite, etc.

Right here, at the forums, not on slayer task... the mad hat cabal kinda LIHOP the acheivement titles broken, and titles still missing for years, but not sight of their photobooth hattery.

Not picking on any one gamer, but the game, that like... every clan the top half dozen ranks are photoboothed mad hats, the p mods are usually mad hats, and so on. Structurally that aims new players at the wrong thing sometimes.

So agreeing with the OP... I have to posit that maybe, just maybe, it'd help to restore titles to the forums? Not sayin somebodys party hat has to crash, or that I'd mock it, but moreso that there needs to be some other stuff thats just as admirable for new players. Asking a new player to pick flax for 2m an hr til they have 150b for a hat is absurd.

Also if was truly up to me... the photobooth would get way more options than whatever fits on headslot. I'd have image of my gold souls cape, my name, and then timeweaver with badges for VIP, trim comp, mqc... and I dont have MOA but that should get a badge too.

rsof is all hats.
