The whole purpose of these EM items, as I have been told by the Event Moderators themselves, is a token of participation and a momento from the actual event. However, this has spun out of control and become more a necessity for players to profit from these items, instead of enjoying the actual event. My proposal would be the following: Allow all partcipants the ability to buy one (1) EM item if it is available as a drop during the event The price should be set to a high amount (I.E - 50 to 100 Million), hence the gold sink aspect of this proposal Continue to provide EM items as drops, and the reward itself will still be a grand gesture Only allow active accounts (Non-RTB or Trial Accounts) to receive rewards Provide access to the "EM Item Redemption" via a Moongate after the event is over for a small period of time This is to limit people just waiting at the end of an event to purchase the item This would encourage the character to partcipate during the event to purchase the item at the end I believe the system would work tremendously as a gold sink, provide other players an opportunity to purchase these momentos of the event for a reasonable price, and cease the amount of debaucheries around the inflated rare market. I think the whole point of the program is for players to have fun, not to attend the events and profit of the items. If a person would like to choose to obtain a momento, then so be it. But yet again, that is just my opinion. At least, this would prevent certain individuals who sell items for a ludacris price, or buy up the stock pile to inflate the market. Everyone would have a fair chance at the item, not just a limited amount of characters. I have also included a poll -- please feel free to cast your vote on this proposal. Thank you.
