Supply was never adequate, it just got worse.
It’s really bad how everything goes down in price, because the economy doesn’t work in this game, but the Oort price climbs like crazy.
Oort is consumed at a constant rate. Portal networks, or your own portals, all consume a constant amount of Oort per day, regardless of if 1000 concurrent people are playing or 100. The fewer people that play, the bigger the percentage of Oort that is consumed by the networks.
I think the price war will only go up so much until only botters who abuse the minter will be able to buy Oort. Last week I earned 24922c footfall over my 8 regen farms. The 8 farms run 9 1x2 portals, that’s 109 Oort stones per week. That means I’ll be able to pay up to 212c, after that I will have to start shutting down portals. (And no, I’m not going to hunt. If I want to farm mobs, I play WoW Classic, which I enjoy more. I play boundless only to build and run the farms.)
