My train of thought is on a roller coaster.Posted: 2010-05-26
I don’t tend to think things through, mainly because by the time I arrive at an answer, I’ve forgotten half the steps that I used to get to it. This usually makes me look like a genius, unless anyone asks me how I got the answer. Which makes me look like a fradle.
So, here’s my newest conclusion: CCP should extend the PLEX system to Dust.
The little I remember from the train goes like thus:
Player A buys a plex from CCP. CCP gets 15 bucks, player sells the PLEX for 300 mil.
Player A hires a DUST merc for 300 mil (damn!). Dust merc buys a plex (somehow), gives it to Microsoft or Sony or Nintendo. Gets a month of online console subscription
CCP sends online gaming provider 15 bucks. 10 bucks?
Effects of this:
Dust playing skyrockets.
Plex demand skyrockets.
Effect of PLEX demand skyrocketing:
Buy orders increase in quantity thus making value of plex go up, plex sell orders decrease, possible spiral?
What are your thoughts?
P.S. If I wanted a forum response, I’d just go hang out at the tourette hospital for conspiracy theorists.
