I put it in rants... to let off some steam on the subject, I couldn't care less about how many other people have said the same thing. I also enjoy making pictures in paint.

The mint cake acts as an assurance, it's purpose is to attempt to stabilise the G.E. so that people don't worry about their other rares/expensive items from dropping, it's removal will create wide-spread panic. Plus it would take ages for things to stabilise again. Think of it like a single screw in an airplane, which that screw doesn't serve much of a purpose by itself, without it the plane will fall apart and crash.

The mint cake assures nothing. It serves no purpose whatsoever. The only things that could stabilize the G.E. would be complete control by Jagex, or if people stopped abusing it. I guarantee you, they could make the mint cake untradable right now and nothing would be effected. Its more like the imaginary screw in the plane that does nothing but fool people.

Not too knowledgeable on economics are you? Every economy is based around 1 item, in this case mint cakes, without which the economy is based on no 1 item. This would cause items as well as commodities fluctuate until a new item took the mint cake's place.

The games economy and real world economy are in no way similar. #-o

True. I'd love to cast a spell on a cake and have a load of quarter appear in my hand. :)

Ok, well the whole point of the mint cake, is that its price is static. Its street value is 10M in this case. We don't really care about Jagex's price, because we found a way to get around that with junk trading. It acts as an insurance, because no matter what happens to other items, this will always be the same. 1 gold coin=1 gold coin; 1 mint cake=10M. ALWAYS. This is good for people who max out their money and need something valuable that will always hold it's value.

 

I'm not really sure about anything I just wrote, so correct me if I'm wrong.icon_e_confused.gif I've never taken an econ class.

 

Oh yea, and a mint cake is a reward from the gnome restaurant minigame. There should be a guide on Tip.it

Im I right in saying that the mint cake has become like Gold Bullion? While the prices of everything goes up and down people who have mint cakes trade them because thay are kind of secure?

I HIGHLY doubt the games ecnomic security is based on the mint cake. The economy would survive were it to be removed.

 

Not that I think removing from trading would do any good, the effects would probably be purely negative. But it wouldn't kill the economy. All I'm saying.

 

And, not that I've taken many economic classes, but the concept of every item being based around one item seems completely ludicrous to me. Unless by that item you mean money, which has no value in itself and is but a tool to facilitate trade.

Buying spins make you a bad person...don't do it. It's like buying nukes for North Korea.

Well if it bothers you that the game is more fun now, then you can go cry in a corner. :shame:

your article was the equivalent of a circumcized porcupine

The only thing wrong with it is the lack of a percentage for when you need to stroke it.

Heres why its used.

 

The merchent doesnt want your 10mil worth of junk. So that trade would never have occured. The merchent is paying 10mil for the cake and buying the junk they dont want.

Ooo, I can make my own mint cakes? I'll be super rich! :thumbup:

 

Things like this mint cake economy confuse me. I understand how junk trading and the "normal" economy work, but why mint cakes? Why not those mjolnirs from the enchanted key?

You obviously have no clue about anything in the world ever. Don't call people stupid for using mint cakes, call Jagex stupid for not finding a more suitable fix for RWT. TBH.

I dont see the logic in mint cakes either. Their 10m worth is imaginary,and if they were removed from the game nothing big would happen aside from the usual panic...

The usual panic...by that you mean the multitude of 5-day riots after Jagex makes any changes to the game?

And don't you think quoting yourself in your own signature is a bit... pretentious?
