i mean the stats for god tier are priced at 1.2 mill

its the rarity of the item which raises it past it that point

you can compare it to beer if you want, certain breweries only put out a certain amount of cases, and theyll sell out within 2-3 weeks of it being stocked. and once it it sold out it goes for 2-3 times as much in the first week. 4-5 times as much in the first year.

i have no problem with very rare guns (god tier and the like) being unobtainable unless you work your ass off to buy them.

ares rifle is selling for like 5 mil or more now. over the summer iy was being sold for around 1 mil.
Correction: I said this gun is worth 1.2M, just like any other "God-tier" gun. You got the 300k from me saying I see it as Sg552 (900k) + grenade launcher feature (worth ~300k).

I've seen so many guys (myself included) get absolutely trashed by someone using a sten/souizen/hk416 other <500k gun vs my honey badger (over 1 mil). It's really down to player skill now, since literally anyone can make enough for a sten/souizen in a week if they tried. Hell, the hk416 is only like 200k I could make that in one day if all I did was mine for 3 hours or trash pick/pk
This is really the goal of my current systems. God-tier guns do one of two things: have none of the minor disadvantages of tier 3 guns (usually clip/reload related), or have a "special feature." See MVP AK47 for an example of the first type (bullets for days but basically a navy) and ARG (high ROF) for an example of the second type.
Either way, if you're marginally good, you can do just fine with a Navy or even Sten.

Ares rifle is probably the only anomaly I can think of, it is very rare (only 5-6 of them) and is also the best single gun on Era.
cf. above... that gun is not worth $5M and I will never buff it up to that price just because someone chose of his own volition to pay that.
Ares is still comparable to other "God-Tier" 1.2M guns, in my opinion.

my bad. yeah, I only got the last part of your convo with seth. but yeah, no way is that gun worth 5 mil. it went for 5 mil tho because like mentioned earlier, there are a few people on era that are so rich that they don't care lol.

and yeah I have np with rare guns being that much. that gun that went for 5 mil is going to be in event shop next month too.

I don't see why we don't just unban everyone? Forget this non-sense, if they find glitches to abuse that is simply things that we should have prevented to begin with.

On another note; What can players do if they don't PK? Recently I've disengaged myself from PKing and quite honestly have barely logged on but I have gotten my girlfriend interested in playing, the instruments have got her occupied, along with buying hats with the millions of dollars I deposited into her bank account but once that runs out, what else could I interest her in?

I tried to get her to mine on her last account, she got to level 5 mining and almost physically abused me with hatred towards it, so I don't think making money is her primal goal.

Also; with the rise in player-count, I have noticed a lot of players engaging in playing instruments, could we perhaps see another Battle of the Bands?

This time giving trophies (kinda like the halloween trophy Logababy, Rogue and CatMater have), money or even rare hats away?

Also; Could someone make a trophy for Iron Man? and give them to the current and future "Iron Men" I mean, I got an MVP coin, 5 EC coins and an ARG (which I sold) so other than my statue I don't really have anything that I can gloat about, just food for thought.

I've seen some close friends of mine react the same way. I really think we need to make mining more comfy. Trash picking is way overpowered compared to the other jobs, even though they were all buffed.

Yeah, mining is horrible income, it should be buffed more!
It's kind of true, unless you want to invest months of time mining it sucks.

I would love to bring JKL back. I've got him on Skype to let him know if something happens with this. Sadly its out of my control due to a global ban. I'd need unixmad to be involved to unban him and everyone really. Otherwise it's a one at a time deal.

Just make Era fun. Make it so they can kill players for a level system - the higher the level the better guns they can unlock
