Licter Posted August 24, 2014 Share Posted August 24, 2014 Prime Frames should not be used as an ePeen status symbol. Claiming otherwise just exposes your greed. And? People can already trade mods now. The introduction of an AH has no effect on this, and it is irrelevant to the discussion. Artficial limits on an AH (outside of listings per day) is a dumb idea. If someone wants to trade for something they cannot use yet, then they should be allowed to do so. If they want to buy a soma (for the sake of argument) blueprint at MR3 then sit on it until MR6 then they should be allowed to do so. If Prime Frames aren't a status symbol, then what are they? An excruciating means of saving a single Forma (which are generally easier to get than the entire set of BPs)? And I'm going to go ahead and indulge my cattiness and point out that claiming status on an acquired item like a Prime is more vanity than greed. "...it is irrelevant to the discussion." This: .... The only real concern is that democratizing the means of trade means people can get items easier. The largest barrier to getting items in the current system isn't the cost, it's finding the person and wading through the poor interface and restrictions. If it actually were as easy as "buy plat, go to AH" to get things, then people would have all sorts of items very very quickly/cheaply. Well said Zeylon.
