But you really can not gouge with it. Because everyone can do it with just a bit of time. There is no limited supply on anything in this game when it comes to crafting. Everything is instanced.

Ask, ask, ask, kick kick, kick.
Glad to see how many people still want to talk about this.

You assume one unified community, as opposed to a shrilly vocal minority who ran their mouths until they got it nerfed to serve their own ends.

"See? I now have 64000 jawa junk purples! It is broken. NERF IT NOW"

They filled their cargo bays to the rim with purple mats and are now the distinguished billionaires of SWTOR by selling purple mats on the GTN.

There is no crafting involved, except that crafters need to once again purchase overpriced purple crap from Mat-Barons.

Crafting is so broken in this game, it deserves a separate thread

Yeap, which is why it was such a farce when people calling themselves "crafters" were here moaning and crying about how it was "taking away their market".

I'm a real player and I requested they nerf it. It was definitely a problem in its original form. It needed an adjustment.

What they did instead was nuke it from orbit to be sure.

To be fair if I worked at Bioware I would secretly find it rather humorous watching the few of you endeavor to keep this topic on the main page when the majority really don't care. Especially since you are ideally paying for the privilege to whinge also.

I get that for some of you it's trolly thing to keep this topic going but it's looking kinda stupid now to be honest. Just sayin ...

I think I posted recently in a form of comic relief but it's hard to believe anyone is taking it seriously anymore.

It's becoming more a soapbox for a select few to proclaim the injustice of the matbaron's supposed domination and as a means to prove they also have no concept what so ever of what price gouging actually is.
