    Houses used to stack when some of us got our pledges. So many players tried to keep their complete set perhaps but now maybe they decide to get rid of them. I am a hoarder a little and have all of mine still but maybe one day I will sell some. I originally chose to start the game for like the $90 pledge but then I increased that over time and the houses from each tier stayed with me. I don't think it means anything players are selling them.

    There is no way to know exactly how much things are worth in this game. It is a players game and they control the prices. The best way to figure out how much you would like to sell things for is just to play the game and check vendors here and there to get ideas. Items do have a value on them which does give a hint if you look. Like an artifact will have a larger value than most things. So the value you see in your inventory for each item doesn't mean players have to sell it for that. It is kind of a guessing game. When I price items to sell I guess. I don't try to undercut but since I don't micromanage it or am not constantly watching prices even though I do visit owlshead and look at vendors occasionally. I just guess mostly.

    It's massively different from the POV that the money market is likely to be there in a year's time. Investments have a chance to bounce back.

    In SotA meanwhile, I don't have anywhere near the same confidence that the game will still be around in a year from now. That's my honest answer.

    The same level of panic came in when the layoffs happened.

    The game settled down and people kept playing.

    The Vendor and crafting station additions to the store came in.

    The game settled down and people kept playing.

    If anything from what I have been seeing just based on my recent shroud stream attendances alone, the game is actually seeming to regain players. People are coming back, taking a look and and staying.

    The game has plentiful ups and downs, especially with a game of its background. Just keep riding the storm and keep having fun.

    The game is doing fine. (From my point of view/observation, not a factual statement)

    Alot of people spend thier lives waiting around for a rare chance to say “I told you so”. Nothin new there.

    If you’re enjoying shroud it doesnt really matter who else hates it, and theres a whole community who does.

    But if you like this game, play it and support it. Dont let trolls calling you an idiot decide which games should be on market.

    That sounds pretty satisfying... I guess until you realize how much time you wasted on a game you don't even play lol.

    Not my fault that the forums are more fun than the game, it's yours! (Yes all of you!)

    Steam is not the only outlet, however, I think it would be wrong to dismiss it entirely. And the numbers are not good there: https://steamcharts.com/app/326160

    Is it already that time of the month where the game is failing?

    It's sad people talk about making money and day trading with a game I was hoping to love.

    The one that got away man.

    Move on if that's the only thing keeping you, it wouldn't change now even if it became illegal to RMT.

    We must have very different ideas of what is fun. Glad you are enjoying yourself though :D

    Yeah I am aware of the other options available (such as stream keys available from streamers like me). My point more was it is nice to see that people are still giving the game a go and ignoring the steam reviews.

    I am not dismissing it, just saying it is a good sign. People take too much notice of the reviews on that platform.

    I actually don't mind RMT when it comes to purchasing items. Power leveling and some other stuff they allowed I don't agree with.

    It seems a lot of people left are in it for monetary reasons rather than fun. When someone tells me the game has gotten a lot better is that because they believe it or are heavily invested?

    For the record, I wasn't talking about Steam reviews, but Steam stats. Did you click the link? It's not a link to reviews, just numbers.

    Who cares? What matters is you find your true love! If it isn't here then my advice is to go; don't settle for less. I'm the passionate type tho eheheh

    I bet much more log on thru the sota client... I wonder what those numbers are like... and looking at the bigger picture, that green graph shows a steady(ish) increase in player base over time.
