They’ll probably patch it out and call it a day.

WoW players fell for fear mongering, fake “evidence”, and blew things out of proportion? Color me surprised

But someone told someone else who whispered to his dog, that then told me layers were exploitable. I have no proof of that but I have continued to champion this crusade while having no understanding of economics and basic ratios.

5 layers filled with people with those 5 layers having a max availability of black lotus at one spot is the same economic situation as having 1 layer (aka no layering) with that one black lotus available. That situation regardless of size of the economy allows for goods to retain the same market value when compared between both economies.

Not surprised that it’s blown out of proportion. The vocal portion of the Classic community is the biggest group of Chicken Littles since the crazies that thought 2012 was the end of the world.

this is NOT an exploit…this is “using available resources… an exploit would be abusing some sort of bug in the game, or is Blizzard saying that “their” layering system is bugged?

adding a delay between layer swapping is a fair change imho.

Lets crack some stuff.r
Supposing that a layer can contain max 3000 players, and lets say 30 black lotuses at a given time span. Then 5 layers will contain max 15000 players and 150 lotuses.r
Now:r
1. We conclude that no matter how many layers a realm can have, the proportions of players/reagents are roughly the same.r
2. Offer will fluctuate basis on the people farming lotuses for sell.r
3. Demand will fluctuate basis on the people buying those lotuses.r
4. Prices will fluctuate basis on points 2 and 3. Not point 1.r
r
As people quit playing, less layers will be available until realms reach phase 2. At this point we’ll have an unique layer.

There’s nothing to patch. The post was a clarification, and some new information on layering we didn’t have before (such as the number of layers).

An exploit can be an unintended result of a properly working mechanic. No one ever said that it has to be a bug. The EULA specifically mentions the exploitation of “design flaws”.

What is wrong with people that they’ll deliberately photoshop false evidence to support their conspiracy theories? You can’t trust anything these days. People will deliberately misinform you, even on stuff that doesn’t matter, like a 15-year-old video game. Can we stop being liars, please? Can we try?

I love this.r

Layering is for sure still bad, but for once, it’s the community at fault here.

Soon the hype will end and we’ll be able to use the LFG addon hopefully.
