  1. Never Recieved Forged Papers ;'(

    This is a joke, no word back at all on whether its possible or not. It really is just a 'yes' or 'no' answer.
  2. Never Recieved Forged Papers ;'(

    Looks like you're being ignored, would at least expect a response- even if they are un-able/willing to give you papers.

    Come on @Ink and @admin, help this poor fellow out
  4. Never Recieved Forged Papers ;'(

    Seems a bit unfair that some accounts have one or even two of these, and others have none. Surely this is a fair case?

    American Sniper all up in this bizznitch
  6. Really enjoyed the RPS piece especially, and you're not a peasant, market prices, even in NA, affect us all :D.
  7. Yes, but NPC trade goods form the backbone of any trader's volume, and as they are not craftable, the price between players cannot be regulated because there is no ability to control production, and now you can no longer bid on prices. You have much less power to determine these prices than you did last week because the in game shops subvert the bid/ask system with NPC goods. If you want a player driven economy, make the port bid prices dynamic on NPC goods, or remove them from the game entirely, seems to be the only way forward IMO. Edit with some thoughts: I'd be in favour of a npc market which seeds the highest bidder, with the port itself alternating bid prices and asking prices much like it always does, but to reflect the fluctating supply from ports, creating supply side factors to pricing to make speculation and arbitrage trading exciting and risky, but in a fun way making you pay for bad decisions, all while players place their own bids and post offers in tandem, exposing them to fair risk. Then, to avoid the 1g outbid spam, would it be possible to force contracts to make bids and asks as a percentage of port base bid/ask prices to ensure its fairness and stablility, while still making market pvp interesting and fun? What's everyone's verdict?
  8. Okay, but in market terms that a Bid (Sell) and Ask (Buy). If I cannot make a bid lower than asking price, how are markets regulated by players and not NPCs?
  9. -double post, ignore-
  10. Interesting, but surely the market being seeded should go to those making bids, rather than the selling stock just increasing? The port makes a bid with everyone else to regulate lowest price and allows bidding wars to spread from there, putting the control of that back into the hands of players, especially national players who can place the contracts to begin with.
  11. I respect that certain goods in ports have been traded for ridiculous margins recently, but is this the right fix? If we assume the shop works like an exchange (which it has until recently), why now is the asking price in port the base price? The margins for a lot of goods now are ridiculously low, and a lot of international traders will question whether the risk of conducting trade is worth the reward. Why not just raise the port bid price instead of essentially "selling to sellers", as this has seriously changed the way the economy works, and soon the wonderful market economy we've seen grow here will vanish entirely as bidding wars fade off, and market pvp (aka player driven markets) with it. I just wonder if taking the player out of the economy, like this has the potential to do, is what the devs really want for this game. I hope we can get a good conversation going here, because I feel this is a huge detrimental change and wonder what everyone else thinks.
  12. Authentication error: Steam authentication server error

    This has never happened before. You sure?
  13. Authentication error: Steam authentication server error

    Update guys: I'm back in, and my ship's on the OW, looks like a mini rollback? Hope you all got off without losses, too! -B.
  14. Apparently many people have been disconnected from PVP Global and can't log back in? I'm gonna be losing a victory to an NPC fleet, what gives? Why can't I log back in? Advice/help welcome. Edit: So, can we get an explanation of why the authentication screwed up and kicked everyone out?
