No, my comment about being able to list for 20% was directed at the absurdity of saying that a "market controller" *forces* me to sell at a high price. Nothing can force me to do that. If I want to list Senya's Lightsaber for one credit, I will. (OK, no, I wouldn't, but that's not the point here. I *can* and the market controller cannot stop me doing it.)

What the market controller does is force people who want the item to *buy* at a high price or do without. Or take their chances on real CM packs, or get out there and gather their own crafting materials, or whatever.

My issue is this: I don't have time to play enough to build up 50mil. I truly despise Ops, Wz, Fp, etc and i have one sub account and one free account. The F2P players CAN'T buy off GTN at those prices because of Credit Limit

Oh boy, hope you got your armor on. Fanbois and necro police incoming. But then again, these forums are rather dead, so maybe not.

You can always buy on sub account and mail to the free one.

Nah, they find the time to mod necros. I know, surprising.

I think its all timing really, I seen stuff go for mils, then suddenly the next day that same set or weapon is going for 200 k and I go wuut. So I tend to also hold out on things im selling. Crafting materials also constantly in flux, some days I can make 500k out of dark matter, other days a mere 100k. That’s why for armors is always good to keep checking. They will always be someone desperate to get some small mils out of it (sometimes thats me lol).

For sure the F2P players (including Preferred) can't buy fancy armour and weapons on the GTN, but so what? None of that stuff is needed to play the game. It's *all* just cosmetic frippery.

The only thing that keeps prices up is the willingness of people to pay those prices, so that being said, nothing is over priced if people buy those items. If no one buys them the prices drop until someone does or the seller will endlessly repost the item while never selling it.

Every time I see a thread like this, I feel the need to recommend Basic Economics: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy by Thomas Sowell.
