In RL? what does it accomplish? how does it help the human race? it doesn't from what I can tell, it is just benefiting the few while harming the majority.
Seriously, I'm trying to think of a good reason for it or how it helps people, but I'm coming up with nothing.
That's why I can't understand it being in a game. If you can think of some pros then it'll change my mind on that.
You don't seem to understand that speculating is always
a part of any economy.
If there are goods to be traded some people will buy them, stock them and re-sell them with the purpose of getting a surplus.
How do you want Anet to handle it? Make everything you buy on the TP to be account bound?
Yes that would fix speculation but also ruin the entire economy.
Yes this is how naturally it should work, but people who monopolize shift it. Price of dye was 5g and there was a lot of them, but after they bought all of its now price is 15g+ and raising. This method is working and proof is price. Your theory is not working as clearly if it did price would drop which is not case.
Simple, everyone should just list their dyes 1c under the monopolist, after a while the net loss for him will be huge and he will be forced to give up his position.
