Food Prices are out of control!!

Post by {Lègîóñ}Σ╬€ℜ₦ÄŁ↭ℜÄĜ€ on Sat Apr 06, 2013 11:03 am

Food prices are at historic levels and the Devs need to act on this. It is out of control. Once gold for food prices go over 300 per, the Devs need to do something to bring prices back down. In the past, they have done this by releasing limited time food packages like the one with the free ship or the one with the Ice Wolf mask (cool limited swag...stuff that will make people want to spend real money). This makes people buy the food package with real money and they exchange their newly gotten food at the TP in exchange for gold and other stuff and keeps food prices at a reasonable level. If this is not done, eventually you will lose players and prevent new players from wanting to get into the game because they can't afford food to level. Please act on this quickly Devs. Food prices are out of control. Please post if you agree with me on this. Doing limited edition food packages will keep food prices in check which will make players happy and will put money in the pockets of the creators of this great game which will make the Devs happy. Win/Win for all.

Players control the food price. Players were so pleased with the amount of gold made in the Sky. But a lot of gold means that food prices rise (gold supply has risen so much that demand for gold has fallen so food rises).

It happens EVERY time gold becomes more plentiful... It happened with silkies...

Until more food enters the market, gold prices will be high IN COMPARISON. Food has been higher (I remember 400gold per), then the devs did an across the board gold nerf - and everyone complained. Then the devs nerfed silking and everyone was up in arms BUT GOLD SUPPLY FELL, so gold rose in value against food and food became cheaper.

Players must decide what they want - great gold but expensive food. Or reasonable gold and cheaper food. YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS

You can have it both ways. If you read all of what I wrote, by offering limited time swag food packages and bringing food in from outside the game, that will lower prices. It's happened before when food dropped to 250 per when they gave the ship free in a food package and again when they offered the ice wolf mask. They need to do more of this is all I'm saying. I'm surprised they haven't.

"Historic levels" is more like 450 gold per food iirc. And frankly, I can't think of a reason it couldn't get back there the way things are.

300 gold per food is about the neighborhood food has always been in since the market stablized after the silk burrower "fix". Having it go a few points higher than that really isn't a cause for alarm. A lot of new food sinks were added to the game in the new age, and the devs specifically rewarded new-age food buyers so that it wouldn't have a major destabilizing effect on the economy. Because of this, food went somewhat lower than it has been in a long time for awhile, and I'm someone who gladly took advantage of it at the time and sold more mats for food than gold for awhile.

There is more gold than before. Most of the new food is probably eaten up by air ship upgrades and the mass of dungeon running everyone has done over the last two weeks. So, like K'Tilqr said, higher price of food is expected when the demand for food has been high and the supply of gold has increased.

Hey, everyone likes a good bonus for buying food, but if you make it a very frequent thing, then it doesn't cause more food to be bought, it causes people to hold off buying food until the next bonus thing. I think over time that would cause the value of food to be less stable, not more.

Food prices on the legends server are far lower than on horizons. Last I checked the cheapest food on web was 600 per in the tp. I wouldn't be surprised if legends went the same way. I'd be happy if food went down to 350 per!
