UN is taking the path of Classic iPhone

There was recently a new hat shop added to Unholy Nation with a large amount of hats with ridiculous prices. most of the hats are at least 15k+ gralats or 300+ ep. This is even more expensive the hats on Classic iPhone, and worst of all trials are restricted to 1000 gralats so they aren't even purchasable. A lot are 40k+ as well.

Seriously? Even Classic iPhone isn't this bad. Gralats are earned at least 3x faster on it and the hats here are 10x as expensive. not to mention trials are limited to 1k gralats so they can't even buy them...

I don't visit UN often, but from what I understand many of the hardcore players have ridiculous stockpiles of EP and gralats, and nothing to spend them on. This is probably an effort to lighten up that stockpile.

At least remove the gralat/ep cap for trials and refund what was taken away upon the cap being added since Stefan refused to remove observer..

You obviously do not know how balancing a server's economy works.
Let's just sell every item on the server for "reasonable" prices and watch everything become completely worthless.

Here's the definition of "Rarity" for you.

i don't think this hat shop has much to do with rarity. for example, the paper wings hat was a one-of-a-kind that dante won from an event. it's set to 30k gralats. then there's a hat that has been given out on holidays and it's set to 60k gralats.

this hat shop would have been a lot more successful if the prices were lower (and made sense) but hats were limited.

This would be the idea.

There's the recently released player auction system for people who are looking to get more of a bargain deal on stuff. Also it seems about 50% of ppl think prices are too high and 50% think they are too low. Probably means they are about right.

EP/Currency sinks are important for any Graal economy. I actually think some of the prices are too low.

Getting hats from players should *always* be cheaper than straight from the store. Hat882 (the one in my avatar <---) sells for like 800EP *if* you can even find someone selling it. The shop sells it for 700. In a case like this, it should be going for 1200+ from the hat shop.

Hope I'm not included in that "people" list, because economies totally ruined a lot of Graal servers that weren't designed to sustain them.
