I"m providing 2020 Market Observations so we can pool our Marketplace knowledge
Please share your insight and strategies to motivate every player to continue playing / collecting
I joined UR Sept 2018
Zapatan estimated a Complete Collection required 300+ Million Clintz
Fast forward July 2020 and Marketplace and prices are astronomical
K = Thousand Clintz
KK = Million CLintz
BM = Black Market
Kate = Kate Buyback Price
2019 09 12 = Kate's CR Buyback rose from 50K to 100K
A Community Event increased Kate's MT Buyback to 600K then higher to current 1KK
== Market reaction
Entry price Mythic Tripled from 500K to 1.5KK
Expensive CR and BIG5 increased beyond 20KK
== Black Market
Most Clintz Missions have a 5x to 10x Multiplier
Many MT price increased 9x Multiplier = 1.1KK to 4.5KK
Current Expensive MT
Scarlett Mt 140KK (highest 220KK)
Dragan Mt 120KK
General Mt 100KK
Manon Mt 95KK
2019 - 2020 General Mt 9kk to 100KK
2020 -2020 Grudj Mt increased 200K to 4kk (BM + MT Announcement)
== Most Expensive
Top 5 Mythic cost 505KK
Top 5 CR cost 88kk
== Final Note
Many casual player earn 120K per week (2 to 6 Million per year)
How do they adapt to current market trends?
What's your opinion toward recent price changes?
...BUT, to start getting infinite free money you still need a starting capital of a couple mil. Which new players may have trouble getting, i'm not sure how generous early game is nowadays.
I usually groan at people heralding the end of UR. They've been whining about various things for years, yet our favorite collecting game keeps soldiering on just fine. But right now i have to say: the economy is screwed beyond belief, and a huge crash is incoming. If this inflation reaches its logical extreme, where 500K spent on the wheel will result in a heap of cards worth double this initial investment value - then who will buy packs? So whether the situation will go on for a little while longer and destroy the economy naturally, or the devs work up a solution and reboot the market on new terms - either way we are in for a huge shitstorm with hundreds of pissed off people.
Please, Saga, talk to an actual economist or something, and work out a way to fix this. Playing the market is the most interesting and unique feature of this game for a whole lot of people and right now it's not in a good place. And the rewards for playing the gamemodes or completing missions seem laughably insignificant by comparison. I want this game to be healthy. And i'm really sorry in advance for tons of hate and death threats you will inevitably get for nerfing the wheel payouts, or removing the jackpot, or denominating clintz by 10, or whatever other tough decision you will have to make.
