I don't get it. Why you don't have some own points in wvwvw with you can buy siege weapons?

1) Since first people don't have enough gold for anything
2) later people have to much of it

Naw gold plateaus like experience/leveling do. So even at level 80 i doubt anyone but the biggest AH players will have massive amounts of gold even if they buy it. Also at that point i don't think those self same people will want to shell over gold after gold just to keep throwing down siege equipment. Most siege's will be won by spending hours bashing the doors down and blowing up the opponents seige. This is why some siege, AKA arrow carts, have to be nerfed otherwise sieges will be boring and dull with nothing more then one side stacking these things and raping the other side no matter were they try to enter.

I think the currency system is fine. You gain enough in WvW to keep up with it since coin/experience scale as you get to the plateau point, i got to lvl 26 and was getting close to 4k exp on keep and 5 silver per with a gold medal.

Lol i think the most expensive was 1 gold?
So with lvl 80 this wont be a problem.
I think it was even to easy to build siege.
Everytime i went to get supplies at the keep the stock was full.
Except for one time that the keep itself was attacked
But i saw lots of people around the keep that used siege.. so they must all have taken supplies out of the keep.
So it felt to me that resupplieing the keep went much to fast.

It's not that the supply stock was necessarily full, people can carry supplies over from supply camps themselves, as well as other Keeps.

I think I should point out that money can also be used to buy upgrades for keeps (granted I think a lot of the upgrades still need to be built).  Question is, should these things really be based around money at all?  It doesn't really matter how much the upgrades are, some people will simply be able to buy more.  Should the amount of money that people on each server have really be part of the game's mechanics?

What is the plateau point and how much gold will a level 80 be making?  Do we have any confirmation on this?

I'm sorry... but if you really think arrow carts are OP you have to go back to your strategy table... So many people say they are overpowered just because they can easily cut down zergs who just attack the gates. Why not just get 1 trebuchet and take down the wall while just hanging out at range? There is no need to zerg in and all attack the gate... Just use some simple strategy and you can easily win.
