    Personally I hate gach and wishes every scroll was introduced to mob drops (with the proper balanced rates) but with gach remaining how it is because a lottery still can be fun. It's just not when it has to be the main source for certain items and scrolls.

    I fully support this, but somehow I feel like there will again be people saying "hurr durr but we had to do it the hard way from gach!" Just like with the AP Resets getting cheaper suggestion

    it's amazing how much work the farmers did to make so many items that were gach-locked items accessible for the modern day.

    Today we have so many options, its never been better imo. But now with farming taken aback, it seems we are heading into another ML recession along with the supply of items dying up and without popular farmers and lack of new players and server exposure, it seems it is coming sooner than anticipated..

    I thought that perhaps Prestigious Coins would absorb the demand for mesos but I was wrong, Staff didn't kil mesos but only made mesos even more wanted because the potion prices and other meso sinks have become too much for the average player to sustain.

    I think there are some simple fixes the BT can implement but I don't think they will change anything regarding their economical findings (those superfluous charts that Nise posted) but instead will continue the downward round of the market where one day we will all run out of mesos to the point people will fire sell their Prestigious coins and the price with crash.

    Do I know when this will happen? No, it is purely speculation however I believe it will happen sooner than we would like, at least if no changes are made to the current state of the game.

    2023 will be a big year of ML, I have been playing for nearly going into 3 years now and I am disheartened to think the game will be less accessible for all. I want the game to be accessible regardless of my own bias or not. There are a lot of issues still needing to be addressed but that will come in-due time. Staff have already done great strides in removing many of the cheaters this past year and in my opinion the toxic assets contained on those accounts needed to be purged to protect the game as a whole. Fuck cheaters.

    While there are other ways to circumvent the market by having more interaction (removing Owl of Minerva), I don't think this will happen either due to the expected backlash from the playerbase. Even if this is the correct fix.

    Today I still think the game is thriving and the market is ever hanging but my own personal forecasts show bad signs for the players long term. There needs to be more sustainable changes and fast.

    Stop selling bow 30s for 10m and the game already becomes a smidge more accessible
