    Reason for Deflation?

    Whats up with the deflation? I haven't played for several years, so the prices aren't that off from i remember it. However alot of people say that items like MSPP tcg have been over 1billion at some point, and other items like Gsword was worth thrice the current value.

    What is the reason for this big deflation?

    Probably a combination of item generating, trillionftw, and unregistered emails in the past year or so.

    Most recently there was an easy exploit to generate any item you wanted out of thin air.

    A lot of people got ahold of it and went overboard.


    Otherwise it's the normal continuous use of hashes, account lists, emails, etc.

    Holy crap item generating. Wow that is one major bug. Was it published?
    No wonder items decreased so much in price, sounds like neo is getting sloppy.

    Published?

    It was spread throughout the community, mouth to mouth.

    But if only one person is generating a few bil, that's going to cause deflation.

    By the time it got patched I'm sure more than 20 people knew how to do it lol.


    TNT also did a large fun auction giveaway, where they were intentionally deflating.


    And people have just gotten really really good at all their specific niches. NP is commonly $1.00/M now.

    Allright i can see why it mustve caused a big deflation then.
    I don't know how i should feel about it though. It must suck for people who had the highend items, but its good to see some of the oldschool items back on the boards again.
    Anyway thanks for the help Brett.

    Well actually while people were making NP, I was mass deleting a bunch that was active from BD Chat.
