So I know that this is a veteran server. How can it NOT be with Aeria disowning their exhibitionist problem child; we are lucky that VGN fostered the game to keep playing. But the problem with any veteran game is that inflation has almost destroyed any chance for new players to survive long enough to keep playing. For example - consider the prices for gamma items. Sure, 25g doesn't seem too bad for a veteran player that just sold that uni accessory for 10k. But for the new player just starting out, they might not have 25g to spend, much less 25g six times and 100g+ for shoes. So the new player has to suffer through playing and leveling with the base gear, getting abused in BGs and barely surviving the quest requirements. Now take it up a notch to Deltas and the new player might spend most of their gold to buy a delta weapon and then the rest of their gold buying a uni laser scanner, and forget about leveling up that weapon. This issue is only compounded by avarice - its not uncommon for a selfish, greedy player to buy out all the unique laser scanners around 100g and then resell them for 125g. I see it all the time and not only with uni scanners. This is exactly what is ruining this game. Drain every possible bronze from a new player before they realize that its not possible to gear up and buy items that might make them competitive enough to keep playing. There is one simple rule that most players are not considering - their prospective buyers. Everyone that posts an item on the AH prices it hoping that a veteran player with a bronze short of 1 million gold is going to buy their item for an alt. But isn't that counter-intuitive? Wouldn't a veteran player be able to farm the item in question. And most veteran players know better than to pay AH prices, but they will shout their WTB for days to get the item at a price they are willing to pay. So to all you veteran players frustrated with the apathy overtaking this game - take on an apprentice. All you new players - try and shout stating what you need and what you can afford. And all you greedy idiots - I hope you choke on all of your marked up resells.
