O.K., Arenanet is hyping the February patch by putting a sale on bag slots and bank tabs. Awesome. Only one problem – the conversion cost for gold to gems just skyrocketed. Now you’ve just kitten off a lot of players who want/need gems for other things and the people who would take advantage of the sale get screwed because their “savings” are eaten up by the gouging in currency transfer.

Could you not have frozen the conversion cost before the change? Sheesh! Only Arenanet could screw up a free lunch!!!

Thanks, but no thanks, Arenanet.

I’m curious, assuming the argument that a 20% discount should apply to the gem exchange rate (I think people here have done a good job of explaining why the sale isn’t a sale on the exchange, so lets leave that be). What system do you use to create a moving 20% discount on exchange, keeping in mind that the supply of gems is not unlimited, and that the exchange does not fabricate gems?

As a quick aside. Gems in the currency exchange are finite. You may buy gems with real money to your hearts content, but if you don’t put any of them gems into the currency exchange the currency exchange’s stock of gems never changes.

Think of it this way. The government can print as much money as they want, that doesn’t mean your bank account has access to that money. The currency exchange does not have access to gem creation. It has a limited stock that players add and subtract from.
