Economy,my so called forte,lets see what I got
Disclaimer - I am writing this based on my knowledge,it may be wrong & if right I expect people to have written about this before also,but whatever,Im typing,stop me if you can
Well,here I am,writing an article on the imbalance in eRep economy,which is gonna result in 0cc being present in game somewhere down the line.
Let the Crap Begin
Well,of late,I came to notice that the value of gold compared to cc is falling non stop,well,its not something you people dont already know,but well,it is something given a little thought,exposes a huge hole in the economy module of the game.
Lets get to the Maths Shall We
Big Bang = Bot Removal
Well,in this section,I am going to do a basic study of the economy before the bot's removal from the economy module.
What we had before was,a constant flushing in of both CC & Gold from the admin and flushing out of it by the players,well if you ask how,then,gold was supplied to the world constantly through medals and the bot pumped in currency,but as the bot pumped in way too much currency to be coverred up in gold,the price of gold to currency rose,leading to gold becoming affordable only for the ones who use the "3rd currency" to buy it
But still,in this way,though gold buyers were at an overwhelmingly huge advantage and it seemed very unfavourable to the non-buyers,we could at least play the game without too much trouble
And then it happened
Here,we study the aftermath of the bot being removed from the game. In this case,the golds were still being constantly flushed in by the admin,through medals and purchases both alike,but here,we had no inflow of the CC from the side of the admin but,the outflow still remained,many companies are built using CC and all that CC goes into the land of no return.
Yes,I agree that CC costing companies are not a good bargain nowadays and whatever,but come to think of it,CC is what our general markets operate on,though it all can be done by gold and IRC,but,CC still holds equal importance (not value,importance) in the economy module. To me,only this explains the constant decrease in the value of gold against the CC.
And at the End of it All,
WE ASKED THE ADMINS
AND THEY REPLY
