Many people may not know of this Trade Nerf/Over Regulation that was just released in Korea but there is a Nerf coming which fixes the price of trade crates such as Calpheon wood crates to a fixed 100% price. 

This is very bad for the game.  We already have WAY TOO MANY THING REGULATED already in this over regulated game.  Regulated marketplace, no trading, overbearing Karma system limiting PvP etc.  The last thing we need is a nerf to the trade crate prices.  Having at least some what of a free market that fluctuates up and down is one of the challenges of trading.  It's a Risk and reward aspect of the game.  And the key word here is GAME.   Half the fun of trading is swapping channels and finding the best price and hunting for that 130% rate.  By fixing the prices at 100% you basically remove that variable and make that content static and stagnant.  It becomes boring and not profitable enough for your investment of time.   Players will simply stop trading those crates in favor of other more profitable and interesting ways to make money. 

Essentially fixing trade prices is killing that aspect of the game.  You might as well remove trade crates from the game entirely because you've effectively killed the depth of gameplay for those items. For a game with such in depth life skill trees it makes absolutely NO sense to kill trading even further by removing all of the variables, challenge and profitability of the trading life skill tree. The profitability of Trade crates is one of the main motivating forces causing players to branch out into the trading life skill tree (end hence playing the game more instead of quitting the game out of boredom of grinding mobs) in order to get master 2 trading for the big profits you can make.  By fixing trade crate prices you kill most of the motivation to level the trading life skill unless you're a dedicated Fisherman and even then not so much. 

This nerf will kill trade crates and killing trade crates is also going to have a ripple effect to other aspects of the game.  For instance killing the profitability of Calpheon wood crates is basically going to cause many players to stop harvesting and processing those woods used in creating them.  And this will occur for any such trade crates in the game.  

So we ask you Kakao and Pearl Abyss: Do NOT bring the trade crate price nerf to NA or EU.  

 

Thank you.

I hope they'll bring this change as soon as possible. Having to change channels so many times to sell batch of crates isnt fun for me.

Honestly the minimum trade prices should not go lower than 100%, or just make the % increase like 10x faster than it is now so you can wait on the channel youre already on to sell your crates.

So this removes the distance bonus completely? No bartering bonus? No desert bonus?

Afaik you still get those. It's just that the base price for the crates wont go above or below 100%, so you can sell all your crates on one go without worrying about that.

To be honest, I'm actually rather fond of variance in prices based upon player actions. It just sounds more in-depth and interesting than making everything flat. That's just my personal opinion, however.:D

Just for you all know: people who voted 'yes' have absolutely no understanding of math in trading and time to income relation.

It's not the very first thing destroyed by ignorance and stupidity in this world, so all down-to-earth true traders and moneymakers will somehow make income out of it :)

Would rather have a static 100% rather than selling 20 and changing channels every 15 minutes.

Occasionally when I swap channels, the crate prices are below 100%, so I have to just sit and wait to change channels again.

Setting crates to 100% removes the RNG of channel selection with a 15min penalty on a bad roll.

 

I do not understand how people can think that the channel bound 80-130% at the moment is actually a really good thing.

Please.. for the sake of humanity.. think!

People waste HOURS of HOURS changing channel to sell (total) 1000 crates becuase of the 130% value! 
When they change it to 100%, they can sell 1k, 10k, 100000k crates at the SAME price without waste a sh't ton of hours changing channels.. THIS IS A BUFF, NOT A NERF!

Half the fun of trading is swapping channels

I guess that sums the nonsense of the OP up pretty well.

I'm sorry your fun in switching 10 channels and waiting 2-3 hours for that will be spoiled with that future patch. But everyone else will like it, because it's a huge buff for crate traders.
