| The $1,000,000 Rutile Question |
During the recent KalZul event, the miners and a few others sold their minerals on the Galactic Market in large sums and at bargain prices. I, for one, fortunately purchased large sums of Red Crystal at $750/unit. I do not plan to sell this material; it is literally just a store of wealth, or maybe even a credit sink.
It has been, in my youthful mind, a figurative dry season on the mineral market since our friendly KalZul event has passed. I wish to spend my Universal Credits on ore and minerals, and yet the supplies are infrequent and small in quantity. I stare at the abyss that is the Black Market, I throw my million credits into it, and the Black Market gives me a single Rutile. I can continue feeding the enigma, but I would rather feed other empires.
I pose a single question: What if the Galactic Market allowed empires to sell minerals up to $1,000,000 per unit?
I am one new, small empire among many old veterans. I cannot fathom the economic changes or power shifts my question implies. Therefore, I seek your suggestions and remarks. A busy market implies more activity. More activity breeds more battling. More battling requires more minerals.
With warm regards to all who took the time to read this message,
|its was you, you bought all the rutile :P|
|we wont get minerals until a.miner ships arent garbage|
Reduce max cash to 1t
|incentivized via....higher prices maybe?|
|I must say I`ve not personally been a fan of market controls, but they seem to serve the majority well. I don`t think we need $1,000,000 rutile. We need more A Miners producing minerals, but for that to happen they probably need to be incentivized.|
