I don't think this has to do with any RC'er or specific person crashing the market. It seems to me that the 'raw material' market is tanking. I was looking up plank prices, all of them started a nose dive right at Jan 7. I looked at ores, same thing, Jan 7.

Looking at the home page for updates, all there was on the 7th was the clan logo contest and the 10th anniversary cake. Even going back to the 6th, all it was is a gallery. So I have no idea why thinks started crashing on the 7th, but it can't be a coincidence that they all fell on the same day? Can it?

@ortrademe: Maybe all the Merch clans had a big conferance Jan 6th and said:

"ok guys, with free trade comming and with it our probable demise, I say we crash the entire runescape market. That'll learn em....
Tommorrow, we dump EVERYTHING, yes cowkiller13 EVERYTHING, even your death runes."


:unsure:

I don't know which mod did this. I don't know why they did it. If they're looking for money, I can tell them I don't have any as I'm a student. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over 4 years of RuneScape. Skills that I have worked hard for and people like them can't take them away. If they give me my particles back now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for them, I will not pursue them. But if they don't, I will look for them, I will find them, and they won't like what'll happen

Strange...But I guess it will all go back to normal before long, seems like a good opportunity for merchers. Maybe some super rich mercher has been solo-buying out raw materials at mid for years and suddenly decided to dump everything? Unlikely but I can't think of anything more realistic lol. Buying 200k deaths for mid anyways so they better go back up :P

I appreciate the drop in price for bursting rock lobsters. With tomb of frost, falling deaths, and already cheap chaos, bursting isn't that expensive at all :mrgreen:

Pretty much everything is falling in price.

Yeah, i'm wondering why this is really.

It has to do with the Free Trade and Old Wildy returning, that is for sure. People have been panic selling quite a few items and even though the worst crashes many items are still falling. I don't know exactly why so many items are falling this much, but I think that it all have to do with that people think that RS will become quite much of a new game when Free Trade and the Old Wildy comes back. Especially when Free Trade returns the market will change. None really knows how much and in what way, so people sell off their items to get as much gp as possible.
Why death runes have suddenly dropped this much I don't know, but perhaps rcing deaths have become less popular because of some reason? What that would be I don't know though.

Which is so weird..
Don't everybody remember that the prices actaully crashed when free trade was removed?

Returning should actually strengthen the prices of raws.

First they came to fishing
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

Then they came to the yews
and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

Then they came for the ores
and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

The way I see it, things are crashing because some people are stopping with manipulation clans and high volume flipping.

I mean...I know flipping is kind of going to be possible technically right until the update. But I dunno...

I know I personally stopped flipping. I'm not sure why...it just seems pointless to do it when free trade is coming back? That doesn't really make sense...but it is what my brain is telling me. lol...anyone help me make sense of this?

If a large portion of manipulators and flippers stopped, then prices would definitely fall due to less artificial demand.

I don't think prices crashed because free trade was removed but rather because a huge change was happening. Besides, there are always people who don't bother to check the facts. "Oh noes, GE is being removed!!! It'll take me forever to sell my [whatever] on world 2!!!"

That is the case for me too, a market which is booming or crashing isn't ideal for item-flipping.

Well, for me it is, too risky imo.

Remember the massive inflation when pvp/bh statues were released? They bring tons of pure gp into the game and when new wild comes all this gp is gonna stop entering the game. Meaning gp is worth more relative to items. In other words items go down, gp is worth more. So the smart people are liquidating there banks and building a cash stack while theres still [cabbage]loads of gp entering the game through pvp. Idk if this sounds confusing to you guys I did economics in college lol

I think you hit the nail on the head. Basically, sell all your items for GP, so you can't lose 'value', even if the market crashes and goes all over the place for the next 6 months. But I think it has a lot more to do with pure GP entering the game through PvP. I think it also has to do with monster drops in relevance to the Free Trade update.

It's the anticipation of no more pvp-statuettes-inflation.

Armour and weapons have an extra reason to crash, because they no longer get lost when you will die in free trade pvp, your opponent just picks them up.


The flipping comment makes sense too. I bet most flippers stopped flipping cause prices are going too unstable (mostly crashing), causing an even more downards trend.
