    Guy who hates rip-off artists: "3 to 3.5m generally"
    Girl who also hates rip-off artists: "Yeah, 3 to 3.5m"
    Newb: "Sorry rip-off guy, I'll hold on to them to get what they're actually worth"
    Guy looking to rip-off newbs: "I've bought 2,354,689,221 tokens for 2m each! *insert incoherent rage spew*

    Sorry we busted your mojo, sir. Next time don't be such a tool trying to rip folks off. Tell them what their item can actually bring but that you are only paying what you're paying. Maybe then you won't seem so skeezy. Carry on

    ^those words up there are yours^

    :bs::loser::dunce:

    Course what I really want to say violates the RoC

    Your miminum bid sir is 3.0 and your possible max is 3.5 correct. Anything less than that would be ripping someone off....:lie:

    Re: Auction

    Id have to say 3 to 3.5 is a bit high for SS. When I first started buying them, they were 2M, this is when there were still a bunch of tokens kicking around. As the shard started to slow down a bit, less were available, and they were still selling well, so of course, supply and command, the price started to rise to 3M.

    However looking at it now, with the price of so many things falling due to population, and with time more and more chars having filled SS, id say there is less demand then there was before.

    It would be my opinion, that anything over 3, is way too much, and Id guess 2.5 would be a fair rate.

    But again thats just my opinion.

    Re: Auction

    I don't really know how to put this is words that you will be able to understand since you repeatedly demonstrate the inability to comprehend the simplest of explanations. Let's try this:

    If I were to mimic your behavior in game, I would have to offer something like 500k gold and then rage babble when Nakukak said that tokens sell for 3m and he's not taking my bid. I'd then have to claim that I've bought 100 SS tokens in the past few days all for 500k each and that must be the going rate.

    But since this is an auction and I'm trying to get a good deal, not rip off some noob and I am trying to explain to you why apples are not oranges, it's really a moot point. Frankly, I think I'd have an easier time explaining algebra to my dog.

    Re: Auction

    I agree that the price has fallen recently, however for the past year plus, 3m was a good price while 3.5m was more the norm. Recently, after Guardian ran his scam, prices seem to have dropped off. I guess perception is reality.

    I sold all the ss i had for 3.5 mil each

    i had no trouble selling them.

    just put them on vender at that price and announce it.

    when i was buying speedy's plot, I mixed in ss tokens and he quoted them at 2M-2.5M or so (which is low) so i just offered gold and sold my tokens on my own.

    3.5 mill was when people desperate for stones bought them

    3 mill was the norm good price

    2-2.5 was when people got desperate for money sold them in order to raise funds quick

    Again...its all supply and demand. Sometime there is a large amount of stones for sale from when new players join Siege ( and need to raise funds) This will lower the price. Sometimes a new skill will come out or a new must have template and this will raise the price of stones as everyone needs an extra one :danceb:

    Im just saying that expecting 3-3.5, in the current market isnt going to happen. Hold on to them if you want that, till there is an influx of players, or demand again. But your also your own worst enemy, when you are selling 5, and in reality creating more supply then command.

    If you were selling one, and auctioning it, then maybe you might get 3, maybe. As people would be bidding against each other, but when others are bidding on more then they need, or just out of business, buying lower, holding on till demand rises, and re-selling for a profit.

    If I were you, I wouldnt turn away any bids, as that removes even more demand. But if they were mine, id hold them till after the PvP balance changes get published (on TC1), as it might make a skill/template juggle move again. And may bring up value, but might not as most already have the skills in use. Tough to say. So either eat em, or hold em if you are not getting what you want for them.

    But you cant complain about offers, as you can only sell your wares for what the market will bear. Its currently a bear market, not a bull market.

    Why did you start the auction at 5k and a kiss? If you put the value of the stones at 3.5 million, are we to assume a kiss from you is worth 3.495 million?

    and before ya get all bent outta shape dude by uniformed i just mean you dont play here full time which makes you to uniformed to make a call like this.

    He's here all the time guys. I'm conversing and playing with him about every day.

    ALL the grief you guys gave me (Esp Shhh), and EVERY single one of you, again esp Shh lowballs him for every token he had.

    You all talk the talk about 3.5 mill... but every person in that channel that day that bid on these tokens walks the walk like a 4.0 alchol blowing drunk.

    Its not that siege is too dead to play. Its that RL takes the cake. I have a very active 2 year old son, baby 2 on the way in a few months. Im finishing the basement of my home to allow for more livable space. Im and electrical contractor that commonly works 12hrs a day, 5-6 days a week. There just isnt time for UO anymore. Was a great game, still have the account, gave all my stuff away.

    If anyone bought @3.5M they are crazy IMO. I have only been gone a few months, I cant see an increase like that, when the shard pop has been dropping steady since they were 3ish.
