Dub Price Exceeding 7k

Just seems a little bit ridiculous, and does not help our small ocean by having dub prices so high. I only see two immediate solutions:

1) ringers control dub price before everyone leaves the ocean
2) pirates who sell dubs have a little bit of concern about what they are doing to the ocean and are guilted into lowering prices.

Currently, im with number 1.

And dont bitch about free trade and all of that, its a game, its meant to be fun, high dub price does not make it fun and only increases the possibility that mala is shut down.

Re: Dub Price Exceeding 7k

Someone's just trying to mess with the dub exchange by buying all the previous sell offers and then posting more at a way higher price. Anyone who has doubloons to sell should sell them back at a lower, normal price, and it'll settle back down in a day or two.

No idea, kind of sucks that it's so easily manipulated though :(

Somebody might find themselves with no playmates if this keeps up.

Re: Dub Price Exceeding 7k

The problem with this ridiculous dub price is that new players will not find motivation to stay on our ocean. Hmm, to work for 7000 PoE for 1 doubloon or to work for 1500 PoE for 1 doubloon (Viridian)? The choice is easily made.

Like Nil already said, if players themselves will try to influence the dub exchange, they will be bought out by the player who is doing this and will eventually still be at the same level as it is now unless someone with a high dub reserve will step in and try to lower the dub prices.

To sum it up, it is hard to prevent because of the small playerbase and not a lot of people being on the dub market to stop this. Ringers' influence would be nice to at least set some sort of maximum that the dubs can be sold for. A limit which will disallow players to sell dubs for higher than that. Of course it will decrease free trade, but Malachite needs some sort of solution and with high dub prices no one is encouraged to start playing on our ocean.

Mala poe is just worthless compared to dubs and this is how it shows by temporary super inflation :D

You give yourself too much credit. Believe it or not, you are not the only group of people that pretends to play here.

And you say I have an ego? Hah.

I've been doing the same thing for the past three years. The difference is that we put action with our message, as we are willing to fight for the good of this ocean.

Whereas, on the other hand, Poopydog's gang goes though periods of active ocean destruction, gets defeated, petters out, Inum quits, then it rises again in a few months and the cycle repeats.

Inum's personality is on a parallel cycle.

They aren't real problems, one of Malachite's biggest flaws is that there are no flags left that won't just shut up and kade.

Since when is a greedy communist or facist dictatorship with a constant need for "living space" a good thing for the ocean ?
(Yes it sure seems to be a good thing for you and yours...)

They thought the same in Germany in 1937 how did that turn out?

Shut up and cade sounds good.

Nice random date. I don't know how you think 1937 was pivotal or stood out in anyway during the Nazi fascist regime. Please enlighten me for I am truly interested.

I understand that you dislike my ideas, but how are they in any way communist or fascist?

I feel like you throw out random historical terms that have negative connotations.

A better term would be "Liberal."

We just blockaded Zuyua and Drogeo. I'm not sure what else you are expecting.

If you mean ocean building, that is also being worked on and I believe one of your royals has been told about that as well.

His name is probably Ions.

Edit-The Spanish Civil war would not apply here, so I don't understand the use of 1937.

You could use the Sino-Japanese war, but Nazi Germany was not a belligerent.

That's great, but that doesn't mean he started it, Mussolini started fascism. And 1937 was Spanish Civil War. You guys aren't very good at history. If I may quote George S. Patton,

"May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won’t."


And yes, that was a completely irrelevant quote, but it's one of my favorites.
