TBH i dont think these guys are "salty" they have pretty much everything they could ask for in this game.
They are simply pointing out the fact that Shiny Trading (which is a massive part of this game to a lot of people and has/will cause many to leave) has been destroyed by the recent botting problem/increase in ultra rares, Even though that has been (hopefully) taken care of and the shinys on GTL are not over 1000 anymore, The damage was done when 70m+ shinys dropped to below 20 and now nobody feels safe buying or trading for a shiny. its not even so much about there value its the fact not many people even want them anymore so the whole trading aspect will die. no one will buy something to use as trading material when they know nobody wants it.
This past 6 months you could of spent grinding 24/7 when you could of just bought a skull in the first place and not even played the game and you would have 10x more cash in the same amount of time.
The fact that the fairly recent time vanity's like flaming skulls have risen in price extremely fast is ridiculous when you compare it to the electric storm which has been around since pretty much game release and has only in the last couple years exceeded 30m in price.
The reason that is a problem is because if this is the new norm, any player could log on @ the halloween event, buy a time vanity for around 1m or donate and quit, at this rate if they came back less than a year later they would of reached there end game without even playing. I don't think that would be good for any "MMO"
I don't have a problem with time limited items but the current situation with them is absurd and i can only assume that because of the recent shiny crash these items have risen so much in price so quickly. As a few others have said this is a PokemonMMO, many people like me dgaf about silly hats but there the only thing thats worth anything rn :P
I don't have a solution for it though :P maybe the economy will come back maybe not
