I’m not even sure how much censorship (if any) exists on Last Epoch… it’s my first post. I guess we will see…
Picture that you are that toolmaker standing behind the knight. The knight is complaining about a hammer and in his hands and has no clue you have moder weaponry in yours.
That, for me, as a +10-year-old veteran of Path of Exile describes perfectly what’s going on over there and I hope that this post can shed some light.
Every league we see the same slaughterhouse.
The little data we have says that most players never get to fully experience the game.
So, you have a game that sheds 100,000 - 150,000.
During those two weeks, everyone is gearing up. The majority of top level players are trying their best to get the gear they need to farm. As soon as their setup goes online they are off to the races and start to farm divination cards (usually, most of them try to farm for a Mirror of Kalandra or Headhunter / Mageblood). That farm, usually doesn’t stop. It goes on for the entire league.
This means that the supply of these items increasing overtime.
So, you have market with the following conditions:
- The vast majority of players are leaving by the 2 week.
- A decrease in demand of these top tier items.
- An increase supply of these top tier items.
Take a look:
This is what price manipulation looks like folks.
Every single league it’s the same.
We’ve come forward with videos of top tier lieutenants from the largest groups admiting to doing RMT. Nothing happens.
We have posts on reddit of BOT farmers admitting to RMT. Nothing happens.
We have streamers (+90%) that all remain silent or try to say it’s just “drama”.
We have forum moderators that delete posts, or move posts into “feedback”, or simply ban you outright.
This is what you guys should not allow in LE.
I really have high hopes for this game.
If you see any streamer at all realted to The Forbidden Trove, ban them. It’s just a huge RMT ring. They will come here and anywhere they have to. Their usual approach is quite basic: ad hominem attacks or rage-bait. If that doesn’t work, they will try to be as controversial as possible to get posts removed.
If you want to learn more, ask away.
Last Epoch, PoE is dying. RMT is too entrenched. It has corrupted Reddit PoE-sub moderators. It has corrupted streamers. It has corrupted a large portion of the player base. Don’t let them in. Please.
In words of a bot-owner that made an AMA on reddit: “The core of the game is located at a point of elite players and botters. It’s set higher than in regular MMOs. Regular players won’t acquire wealth, they will RMT”.
