    I've made a huge mistake

    Just thought I'd share my story of stupidity for laughs

    So I've been crossing my fingers and donating r90+, hoping to get lucky.

    I find shops stocking a high amount of items I'm after, then buy them out and go for broke at CC. I found a shop with good deals and proceeded to check the item rarities using the CC food list from JN just to be sure. If the item showed on the list, I knew it was safe to buy.

    But my brain had other plans. I forgot that I'd removed the r90 minimum in the search earlier in the night while browsing. An item I double checked with the list was actually r89, but because it showed I assumed it was 90+. I proceeded to buy about 55 of these at 30k each. Then poluted my other r90 donations by mixing this r89 amongst them. I can only blame myself Only realised what I'd done about an hour ago when I saw what remains of the item in my invent, and noticed 'rare' written beneath it.

    I spent 27m today and the best thing I got was Fire Faerie Doll and around 30+ r99s.

    How did I miss it? Now I check every first donation and wonder if I'm seeing it right or have lost my marbles

    I cleaned out my SDB and decided my luck just wasn't worth tempting and i quit.

    I'm not spending 30k per item and i just don't care enough to bankrupt myself while TNT crashes the economy into a fiery ball of hell.

    Stamps and items are all over the place and it's pissing me off. I'm boycotting until the economy levels back out.

    If it happens every year doesn't that show that the economy crash doesn't really last? I thought this had been going on a few years now. From what I understand in 4 days it is over and I am guessing a month or so the prices go back to normal once the resellers buy up everything.

    Do they normally release those high-end stamps like that??

    It's crazy. So many stamp avatars all over the AC this week.

    I'm afraid this time. There are just so many items, food accounts for a huge amount of donations and they just don't end. By this time las CC the items were selling up to 40k a piece, now it's like 25k and if my calculations are correct it's actually profitable to gamble for JN price. This means JN price won't hold out for sure.

    I mean, this always happens and the economy goes back to normal after a while (and I've bought my fair share of items to resell later in July or August), but I'm not going below my pure NP amount before CC.

    This happens basically every year and items just get used up, value goes back to how it used to be if not close.
