More broadly, I’m just pointing out that its really tough to’hide’ an artificial restriction (at least one that makes a significant effect ) on a marketplace if there’s sufficient data available on the market. Item costs and demand curves are quite showing on stuff like this. There might be workarounds, such as obfuscating by using a list of items instead of just one which are randomly chosen or randomly jumped around. But it would definitely be an issue for the layout of OP if executed word.
Make it an occurance that happens at the end of the ditch that is gold. If in the end 10billion is chucked then the correlating GE sales of this arbitrary unknown thing are subsequently purchased out. No telling of it happening at all. No chance for abuse. Yeah thats not a bad thought. To minimize abuse potential even farther I would also suggest making the buyouts happen at random intervals, to prevent people from only stockpiling random items and then posting them at 9.9percent over market place before the buyout happens. So then if the buyouts are arbitrary its still possible to do so, but you would be sacrificing all of your GE slots to get items sitting there all of the time so that it would be a gamble.
This would be really difficult to’hide’ from players, as sink tems could be recognized almost instantly via aggregated GE data. It would be quite straightforward to come up with an automatic version to predict/identify them based on stuff like price swings and transaction volume. And id fully anticipate if this were to go as indicated websites such as’getracker’ would add a tool on their front page suggesting these items.Why would you presume the items are being purchased as the gp comes from or they simply wouldn’t show trades completed this way as part of their trading volume considering its not.
It wouldn’t be difficult to hide at all if they wanted to, there’s an insane variety of ways to accomplish that. Doesn’t make your premises correct Simply because there’s ways around it under your assumptions. I mean that the items are bought from somebody? Sell offers are being stuffed? I could be wrong on this but my premise is the ge tracker sites take data from programs like runelite, or in certain way that isn’t data given straight from jagex. You are right they could conceal it if all information on sell/buy provides is taken straight from some API jagex has immediate control over, and there’s no other means of receiving it from customers, but I do not think that is the situation.
