Re: Jubilee Market Bidding

 
Shawe, players put the effort into that island for years to keep bidding prices stable and favorable. Nobody needs the price to go up because someone's making uninformed or impatient bids.


i agree that bidding high is stupid but isn't that just the power of the free market or has viridian turned into russia/china ????

if stupid people do stupid bids then let them its a free world. and its how the powers of the market works!!!

Re: Jubilee Market Bidding

 
In fact, what you seem to be advocating comes dangerously close to "price fixing" which is frowned on in most market economies.

Price fixing on primary commodities helps everyone. Commodities are not a market economy because production does not increase in response to bid prices (it does respond to end user use prices but that is different).

Re: Jubilee Market Bidding

 
I'm sorry but not everyone follows Cobalt and knows every player there, it's just something you're going to have to get used to until you're better known on Viridian.


There's really no excuse for not knowing all the Cobalt players, after all there's only 7 people on the entire ocean.

Zing! :D

As much as I get your point about someone being a douchebag with the bidding, what is this thread but an invitation to get the market bidding trolled to all hell? :/

I don't mind going to war with everyone from Cobalt, infact I'll make a flag just so you can.

I do however love this, "someone disagrees with me, i'll try and get a insult thrown in" approach you seem to have.

Re: Jubilee Market Bidding

Oh please Sverdrup Lux was just doing you a favor you do need to learn a bit more about blockading before throwing disgusting comments such as "All mates of Heisenberg's Uncertainty .. please job for Knockout ... I do not appreciate the way the way that RM is showing off their wealth by sinking thesmelves ... disgusting ... they are the ones who should pay their jobbers more" in the middle of the blockade in the other flag chat; if you sat and actually used your head you would understand sometimes is less costly to sink your own ship than have them stuck an entire round break in the board or ditw with no cbs.

Use it, it was given for a reason.

Rose:

First, I do give you permission to post all chat-logs and personal messages (past, present, and future) that you may have from me in perpetuity ;-)

Second, and this is my only real goal here: please lets try to be civil ... it will serve us all better in the long run as a community of pirates.

And third, I like to give you lots of credit, that you actually noticed my statement switching sides during a 20 Mil/round blockade with 500 pirates to each side and the associated spam. Pirates have emotions and passions. Emotions and passions shape politics. If the calculus of our heads is not complemented with the emotions and passions of our hearts, we'd all be bots. And fighting bots is rather boring, would you not agree?

~Sverdrup ... who has no problem being a village idiot

P.S.: And that excursion of "Domination" to Cobalt that you, Martobain, Luxory, and many other prominent Viridian/Sage players were part of, well, it was that very excursion that turned many of us Cobaltians into Viridians. Talking about unintended consequences ... life is fun, and we really, really like it here on Viridian once we got, as Ivdripper said so eloquently, past the Viridiots. Calling us 'alts' as your former King Seepnah did, well, we are able to express ourselves both on the forum and with the ships, rum, and shot in our posession. Lets leave it at that. In good fun ... and I really mean this as such ... fun.

I'm not to sure if you've met me properly.

First off I couldn't careless who you are who, I like the added competition in all honesty, more blockade ready flags = More fun for me, a wars a war regardless as to who it is with.

Too address the domination of "Cobalt" I only navved in one blockade, and made a post out of frustration. I actually have a few Cobalt hearties and made a few friends during my very short period there.

Also, I only said you can't complain about people calling you alts, fact is not many on Viridian have even heard of cobalt let alone venture there, therefore you are going to look like alts despite your crew fame.

Re: Jubilee Market Bidding

Hello,

First .. please get this thread back on the subject it was made for. Making the overbidder aware of the circumstances his actions had and try to fix the stable Jubilee economy which is profitable for everyone.

Second .. It was never said you are alts, it was said that to people like me who never had any contact with cobalt several players in the flag might seem like alts due to standings (lack of experience and high standings, or no stats whatsoever).
In my experience Viridian flags do not respond to war declarations from these kind of flags because they rather fight the mains who do not need alts to keep their crew a high pvp ranking. (Again not saying you are alts but people may perceive you as such).

Third .. Declaring war is never frowned upon on Viridian. Neither was it said anywhere so no need to defend any reasons you had in declaring on most big flags.
Combining this with point #2, during Viridian history ALOT of alt flags have been created which resulted in people not taking them serious anymore and thus not returning. Prove your worth on the ocean and you will get wars returned.

Sorry for any grammar mistakes i might have overlooked.

Cheers,
Visioon

Wait when was I part of this? D:

The only stat I have on cobalt is guns, and I got that because I wanted it on every ocean. Gosh.

Edit: After asking people online what you meant, I'm guessing you're referring to that one time I navved in a blockade on cobalt. I forgot about it.

Re: Jubilee Market Bidding

Hemp is still 6 ... hopefully the regulars have enough of a stockpile to ride out the price hike so they won't start bidding at a high price. Wood seems back to normal, if it was ever affected.
