TG, conductress and GC revamp

So many threads about reducing inflation, I decided to make one of my own.


My suggestion is to increase cost of:
TG, from 1k to 100k
conductress, from 100 silvers to 1k
GC, from 500 (I think?) to 2k

Why?

At the moment, inflation is gripping every server, and is increasing greatly. This is due mainly to the moneybags from lottery, which pump large amounts of gold into the economy without taking any out.

The only ways of removing gold currently are through guild fund, and NPCs.

This would help reduce inflation because, obviously, the NPCs would take more gold out of the economy, and also the free TG from winning GW would be more valuable, so more people would go and waste their gold there.


Now 100k for TG is obviously unfair for those who D/C regularly, so I decided to include a slight change in the way TG operates.
Once you pay your 100k, you have free access to the TG for the next 24 hours, whether you d/c or leave TG for whatever reason.
Oh, and stealing ananta's idea, free TG would also apply for guild allies.




It is my hope that this change would not only decrease gold on servers, making everything cheaper, but would also liven up GuildWar. Please vote, and tell me what you think. I'm open to criticism.

Some might disagree, but I think the moneybags being poured into the economy are being cycled by people buying dbs for money.

They're being cycled, yes, but not drained.

They just accumulate, because there is no sufficient method of draining gold.

Of course, there never was before moneybags, and all servers experienced slow inflation just from the money picked up off the ground, but this has sped up the process greatly.

Well, the people generating the money are paypallers, who are making a lot more money selling dbs than they used to.

The factor I'm not sure of is whether db value and lottery return evens out over time in sycee value.

If lottery results were more valuable, we would be rightly worried. But that being said, I like your idea of 100k for 24 hours of tg. Perhaps it can be scaled for each level.

The thought of scaling did cross my mind.

By this, do you mean... like... you pay (your lvl) * 1000 to enter?
That's what I thought.



The question of lottery evening out with DBs... yes, it will. It has to. I think it has already, for the most part.
But, lottery is quite randomized, so you won't always get an exact return on your DB. You might have to spam hundreds before it evens out.



And about paypallers making more money than they used to... yes, they are. But money is also worth less. This won't change what DBs are worth. If anything, it will make them worth more because moneybags will be more useful. However, while they are worth more in terms of items, they, and everything else, will cost less sycee.

Like I said, I'm open to change.

What do you think would be a good price?
100k doesn't seem like much to me, but maybe I'm just rich

Like I put in my last post, something like that occurred to me.

I'm not sure though... 100k isn't that much, and 24 hours worth of TG... for most noobs, thats about the same as they would spend on pots anyway. Although I suppose they're not getting drops... but that's what you get for being afk.

Might change it. See what more people say.

You didn't read my whole first post?

When you pay the 100k, you get unrestricted access for 24 hours, even if you leave TG.

Well I tried to make it vaguely guild-oriented, by incorporating the guild allies getting free TG access.

Let's not forget, guilds already get free GCs and TG... so, if it were more expensive, this would be a much greater benefit.

Also, the winner's guild fund would go up very fast with these increased prices.


Maybe 5% of the cost of TG/conductress/GC could come out of guild fund?
