Let me get some shit clear.
NO, people did not stop buying donator packs. The number did not significantly fell that it has caused the market to rise by 7m+/-
Someone's just handling the market.
All you need is a few billion dollars and you can make a hell of profit by slowly selling it.
People have removed them from the market (bazaars and/or Item Market), but the overall number in circulation is close to the same it normally is.
Obviously, people are trying to make extra money by selling them at collectively higher prices.
No one person can control the market. When you go to the Item Market, is shows both bazaars & the Item Market. If you have them in your bazaar, you only get one listing.
If someone wanted to undercut the market and sell theirs, there is nothing stopping them (other than greed).
Or, maybe there is yet another conspiracy going on trying to jack up the price of DPs, along with the scripting conspiracy!!!!!
That isn't even what I said :|
One person surely can, you're highly mistaken. Dealing with this shit (SEs, properties, DPs, FHCs) is the main reason I enjoy torn, and I am well aware of why prices drop. I do this shit all day long. try reading mine again and then what YOU said -_-
In order to "control" the market, you would need to have nearly an unlimited pool of money. You would have to buy EVERY DP that was listed lower than price X, they resell them at your control price. You would need to do this both on the Item Market & Bazaars. You would need to be online nearly 24/7 (or have a bot doing it, but, they do not exist)
Better question would be WHY??? That is an awful lot of work to make a couple fake TC monies.
Secondary question, you get enjoyment out of buying & selling fake things on the internet? that is what gives you pleasure in life/Torn???
