Naglfar BubblePosted: 2013-08-02
In the Odyssey patch the split weapon system was removed from the Naglfar hull bringing with it increased demand for the Dreadnought hull. Having just come into possession of a ME8 BPO, we quickly put it into production as I knew the demand was going to grow.
What we’ve seen over the past 5 months due to the increased demand was a large increase in the price. Sales have been quick showing that there is a strong demand.
The capital market is quite different than any other market I have worked with. The barrier to entry is high due to the core profits coming from owning a complete set of BPOs, the timescale is measured in weeks due to the building of parts that go into hull construction, and the demand can shift due to a change in popularity.
In contrast to the Cruiser market where a single BPO can make the hull, a unit can be delivered in 2 hours, and almost all of the hulls are in demand, the differentiators set capital production in a league of its own.
