    [quote name='Kyphis the Bard' timestamp='1300674472' post='80974']
    Now we move to coins. How are coins generated in the first place? (excluding Murvine intervention, of course) Via the MDShop, ie credits once again. There are certainly many ways of getting coins, such as gifts, quests, the shop, and trading, and these do serve quite a valuable place in the market, but ultimately they are only created via the expense of credits.
    [/quote]

    Coins are no longer obtainable via shop. This is because someone got alts and abused free credits to "farm silvers". Now the amount of coins in MD is essentially an exact and set amount.
    In that case there is in theory an INFINITE amount of Reindrachs and Rusties. They are PURCHASABLE from the shop bot only after lots of credits spent. WHY? So that you can't abuse free credits to get them. Because we keep getting shop resets we can spend $50+ (or about 145 days on free credits) per shop reset to get a Rusty/Rein. Over VERY LONG amounts of time what's not to say there are more Rusties/Reins then silvers? (I'm referring to EXCRUCIATINGLY LONG AMOUNTS OF TIME)

    I understand where you are coming from, but I have to disagree (me being one of the people who can afford whatever I want most of the time, of course I would)

    Consider this: MR Holy One just sold a Reindrach to me (Note: this is the FIRST creature I have EVER purchased from a player, for coins/credits/otherwise). To Unlock this creature from the MD shop it would cost ~55 credits, and it is only available at one time of year, once per account. I paid 30, his asking price was 25 (I just thought it was worth more than 25).

    Consider if someone less financially well off than me had wanted a reindrach. Normally, they would need to spend ~55 credits, AT THE RIGHT TIME OF YEAR, to get it. From this case, they could get it at LESS than half price, at any time of year.

    Then, let us consider if we DO ban purchase of things via credits. What do we use instead? Coins, creatures, and items.
    Items are almost always worth far more than even a rare creature, and very few people are willing to part with them due to the way they are normally created (wishpoint+materials to create a character specific item). So while it happens, Item trading is not very viable.

    Creatures are another case, with them being the main trade good. However, the majority of valuable creatures are obtained via the shop. This means that you are paying credits for them anyway, and as I showed in my above example with the reindrach, it is quite easy to get things cheaper as it currently stands. That means that being able to buy things via credits directly actually helps to make things fairer rather than unfair.

    Now we move to coins. How are coins generated in the first place? (excluding Murvine intervention, of course) Via the MDShop, ie credits once again. There are certainly many ways of getting coins, such as gifts, quests, the shop, and trading, and these do serve quite a valuable place in the market, but ultimately they are only created via the expense of credits.

    There are a further two benefits of the current system. The first is from a buyers perspective in gaining credits over coins, and the second is another way that this method is, in fact, fairer.

    Firstly and quite obviously, credits are a lot more versatile (which says something considering how versatile coins are in the first place). Part of the appeal is that, if you have just gotten deep enough in the MD shop for the Sword and Shield items, if you sell for credits rather than coins, you can then turn those credits into the coins you would have otherwise gotten, with a nice stat boost attached.

    The second aspect, which helps to keep things fair, is that players who themselves cant afford to buy credits can sell things to other players for credits. This helps even the playing field between those who have the disposable income to pay, and those who dont.



    Now, all of this said, the above only really applies to someone who can't afford to buy credits selling things to get them another way. There is certainly a problem when you have people buying things for credits from others who can also afford to buy credits, as then you have a case of the rich getting richer and the rest of the community has a harder time gaining any benefit from it. This is why I have NEVER sold any creature (I only give them away) for anything, and why I have only ever purchased one creature by any means (although I have made offers in the past, I only make one offer and never haggle).

    Overall, while the above is worrying, there is not too much you can do about it without making things more unfair in the big picture.

    aaront222 reacted to Burns in Black and White Competition   
    Sparring Ground Championships (SGC) proudly presents the Black and White Competition!

    In this event, nothing of any color is allowed. This means: [color=#FF0000]No tokens, combat influence/pray power, spells, combo, shop creatures, and other shop features whatsoever[/color].

    As added handicap, the defending player MUST tell the attacking player half of the creatures they use, in case of odd numbers rounded up. Which creatures they give away before combat is up to their own choice.

    Due to this obvious advantage of the attacker, each round of battle consists of 2 fights, one as attacker, one as defender. Should a round end as tie, another round needs to take place, until one person wins both the attacking and defending fight of a round.

    I'll decide for a tournament mode next Saturday, that's 26th, around midnight. You have until then to sign up if you wish to participate. Please include your MP-level, 6 will have to fight in the same class as 5.

    SGC wishes all participants good luck and clean fights. [img]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Edit, about rewards... Depends on the size of the tournament. If there's a big crowd, there'll be big prizes. If there's just 2 participants, there'll be no prizes. You can either play, or not. Should i happen to give out 20 wishpoints in the end, and you didn't sign up til saturday, you lost your chance. [img]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif[/img]

    Or maybe we can just shut down MD! Then there'd be no MP levels at all! Nothing to complain about!
    That was pure sarcasm.
    I expect severe neg repping despite this is a legitimize solution that would remove the problem. I DISAGREE WITH THE ABOVE SOLUTION!!!
    @Mya I'm Mp5 and I only just got 100 base attack a month ago. It's possible to beat eon's max token Angiens with the right creatures. I have the battle log that says so. I have pretty low stats and I can beat the giants sometimes.
