We're not talking about a direct link between a CC price and a credit price on the GTN. I know that it differs wildly. It's the overall pricing in the CM. And the more expensive the CC cost, the higher return a person seeks, doesn't mean they'll get it of course. You forget that only a handful of people have the interest in "knowing the market". You're a power trader. You know what's up but that's not most people. And even though there are few items that you consider cheap doesn't make it so. I mean what is cheap to you? 100 CC or 600 CC or 1000 CC? When does it get to be expensive in your eyes.

You may think that but I think you overestimate the number of players that have that going on. There are not that many.

Stop saying that about a sub. It's 500CC a month, 600 with SK. That's a pittance. You have the view of someone that is money savvy and assumes that most people are like that. I'm telling you most people are not. Look around in the real world. Most people want to play the game and enjoy it. For most that doesn't include collecting credits but playing the game, gearing up, beating challenging fights, enjoy the stories and cosmetics. 100M is easily spent in the current gearing with augments and amplifiers and such. Maybe you don't do that but since 6.0 gearing has become a helluva lot more expensive in credit cost. Crafting also is much more expensive. In short, playing certain aspects of the game have a MUCH higher credit cost to them and the people who partake in that do spend a lot more credits than before. And then 100M is really not that much. Maybe you don't raid or do ranked or care about gearing, but others do.

My view is that making money via the GTN can be done by anyone but not by everyone. If people buy too many CM items it will flood the GTN and therefore prices will drop. If you do it via crafting, then not too many people have to craft or the GTN gets flooded with craftables. That's why crafting became a lot more expensive so that people who do invest into crafting can still make money with it. But it is prohibitive for people who do crafting just to be self-sufficient for example. And if you're a power trader, not too many people have to do that either or it won't work.

It's a simple thing, anyone can do any of those long as not too many people do it.

Me: I played Star Wars The Old Republic today.

Friend: Was it fun?

Me: Yeah I waited on 500 tables and got ALL of their orders right!

Friend:........Star Wars has really changed!!! Did you use the force?

Me: No but they want to "force" me to pay for this new skin that cost me more then my car payment.

Friend: So let me get this straight..... You played Star Wars to become a waiter and on top of that they charge you a ridiculous amount of money for a simple skin??

Me: Yeah, time to go find a real game that gives a crap about it's fan base.

Insulting at best. My whole family is uninstalling now. Worthless!!!! Greed!!! Ignorance!!!
