selling shards. yeah. i see bunch of same names over and over again every hour
they would chat in all categories. global/recruitment/trade/
WTB m10 orb > LFM M10 1K per slot > WTS 4-6K shards
imagine how sus it is, playing almost all day just to sell shards over and over again
that’s so friggin obvious they just want the coins to sell
i reported them just to make sure the moderation team can have a look at their wealth history
seriously, this needs to stop. coins become more and more invaluable cuz of coin sellers farm them probably millions every week. how to stop inflation if they still living a good life especially after they realize they can sell shards
Selling shards is nothing more than selling M10 carries. Selling carries is just about as old as MMOs which carry-able content (dungeons and raids). You may not like it, but it’s certainly not against the rules and based on the quoted prices I’ve seen (15k per M10 final boss kill) it’s not making them millions.
Consider that they would have to sell 1,000 M10 final boss carries to make 1.5m gold. At 5 minutes per final boss kill that’s over 80 hours of game time. Also, selling carries isn’t against CoC.
I think he is pointing to the gold hoarding that is nowhere to be used other than, maybe, cashing it later?
It’s the fastest/easiest way IMO, you don’t even need to own a territory, just do this all day long.
im pointing out the suspiciousness of these shards seller that just do this all day for hours straight til everyone in the server know and remember their name that just do
wtb m10 orb
wts m10 slot
wts m10 shards
dont you play other things beside getting coins?
At the end game, once you’re routinely clearing M10s it means you’ve beaten all the PvE content - all of it - so unless you’re a PvP-heavy player this is a reasonable use of time. They keep running expeditions they’re good at, they hone their skills, and they make some coin at the same time.
It’s not even close to the fastest way - like I showed above; to make 1.5 million gold 5 players have to spend 80+ hours doing this. Then split that gold 5 ways. So:
80 hours to make 300k
Anyone remotely serious about playing the trading post, crafting top end gear, or chain-running mutations and selling the BoE drops from them is making money faster.
It’s an end-game activity for members of the 625 club. And with a 608 overall gear score it’s not a club I’m a member of.
Well yeah. Who has BiS gear to sell all day. On the other hand, people have orbs for days, me included. It would be so weird if I decided to sell those for gold and some weirdo decides that I’m doing that to trade it for IRL money because…???
This is the part that bothers me, not the others. Because what these people do is reaching the last boss, then taking the buyer to the group at the last moment, selling them the shards. Its literally what P2W is in the game’s own world and it creates bad players with high GS… Players who will eventually be called “noob” or worse things, while wasting other people’s times and efforts. at this point, maybe they should enforce the Recommended GS into Required GS to prevent this. if you dont have the minimum GS, you shouldnt be able to do them.
