Wondered why your blueprints and ship parts seem to be unsaleable ?
Here are some reasons for it:
1) Missing demand
Many players don’t have T5 destroyers so why should they bother buying related blueprints and modules.
Other player don’t see a need in Mk5 Weapons, as the cost in manufacturing a orange weapon or module isn’t worth the better specs.
2) Fixed minimum prices
If the demand is low usually the prices fall. Here you still pay the same overrated prices for blueprints or ship parts even if there is an excessive supply.
3) Matured markets
There aren’t enough new players to absorb the mass of blueprints and parts that are bought with the caches.
The market may still be able to produce more demand but only if for example T5 destroyers would be introduced again.
4) Amount of money in circulation
The amount of money in circulation is reduced with every trade transaction (tax 10%). If players don’t buy Galactic Standards for hard currency the amount of money out there is shrinking. As there are no more tournaments for earning GS the only way to get GS is to sell stuff (which isn’t really working) or to buy GS (which works pretty fine).
How to fix the trade system ?
Good question - I would start to reduce the prices.
But in the end the real reason for trade is to make us buy more GS.
That is okay for me as servers and developers need to be paid - but the line
between a fair compensation and naked greed shouldn’t be crossed too often…
That is my view… feel free to comment.
