Probably should wait to answer, but free few minutes before going back to game.
While I can understand the frustration at some of the prices, one shop has them at a high price while another has them at a lower price, that is part of the game, we can chose the price we want to sell the item for.
The chose to buy is Yours, you can look for cheaper prices and refuse to buy the high ones. Yes, that can be frustrating, taking up time and some don’t have the time but that the same in real life, you have to shop around for a low price or pay the higher price. The price policy will, in my opinion, Never change, it works for the most part, buyer beware is how it works, you are responsible in looking for the lowest price, not the seller adjusting to satisfy your wants.
You can look, gather and mine for items that you need in many areas, I mine for ores, and get what I need for the most part, even has spare to trade for gems or tools sometimes.
In some of your other posts, they are unfair to many of the other players, the regen to make prices lower can help to some extent a few, but those who can’t afford regen bombs are stuck getting smaller amounts and so don’t have a lot to sell. Those who do get a lot to sell have to pay for the regen bombs and want to recoup the price in what they sell. And because the supply has increased the prices have dropped, when I first looked for green yams they were 60coins or higher, now I can buy them sometimes for 5 coins and up to 15c some want more but I ignore those shops.
This is a MMO game, not a sandbox game so rules of playing are different. Some MMO may have set prices, or a limit on how much you charge, but the devs wanted it this way and it is their game; they make the decisions. not the players, they do listen to us, though
If you are upset with the prices, you can make suggestions, but don’t expect them to be done because you want them, sorry for that, but others don’t.
I don’t want to be forced to charge a set price. I try to have the lowest prices on what I sell, and accept that some still are willing to pay the higher prices. That is their choice.
As for torn in the air by the old Boundless, I’m not old, I bought when it was released and I felt the prices were to high, that we got too few coins and that the footfall was not fair also, those who didn’t have bases near cities lost out.
The Devs listened me and others and changed how footfall was given, making it more fair to some, it still needs more adjusting, but I trust they will get it changed at some point.
You will need to explain better what you want so we can understand and the devs can understand what you want. I’m sorry you are having such a hard time, but others may not want what you want and not all of them are only the old Boundless players, some are the new ones.
