.... Their economy that is.
I know it was in the shitter to start with, but.... Let me explain a bit.
Last time I logged in was back in August 2013, because I was keeping up with the monthlies... I planed on having (at some point) a huge give away with them, as I have monthlies dating back from when I first got my debit card in 2006. So besides the 2013 set, I have a single letter from every month, of every year, from the past 7 years. Pretty awesome giveaway idea, hua?
Anyways, when I logged in that past August, monthly sealed letters were about... eh, 200k gaia gold? Somewhere around there at least, as I remember complaining about it being expensive and feeling old due to "Well back in my day, 2006, Monthlies were selling for 5k each brand new, 8k if you were desperate! Katanas were 15k because they were badass! D< *waves old man cane*" type of mentality.
When I logged in today however, I went to see if I could update the collection since I was missing September, October, November, and December of 2013. First I looked up September, as it was the oldest and thought it'd be the most expensive. The cheepest was 1,900k gold, with the market price being about 1,500k gold. Wow, must have been an awesome item that people wanted! Lets check October... 8,000k, with the average being 900k... Not bad, but wow, that's high... November, 12,000k cheepest, 4,000k average... The hell?! What's the current sealed letters at!? 4,500k, average being 3,000k...
How could the price of sealed letters, brand new, go from 200k to 3,000k in the matter of 6 months?!?! Was there some update that made getting money stupid easy? I thought I was still "rich" due to the fact that I had just under 8,000k cash sitting on my account!
... Otherwise, not much has been happening... Playing lots of DayZ standalone, as a friend got me into that. ((Being a "hero" [aka helping random people out] is a lot harder than one would think... )) Annnnnd.... that's about it...
Hope everyone is having a great one~!
