Excuse me sir!!!!!! Are you out of touch!?!?!?!?!?! It only seems easy for you Alpha Tester because you got to exploit earlier glitches. And it is my guess you are a part of a larger org. I jump to play this game to play this game for it had a market like Eve and had factory building like Factorio and Satifactory which fit both me (a factory builder gamer) and my Friend (who likes the market). we both played Eve and hated that you had to have a PAID subscription for Months if not years just to do anything because of a skill is needed just for entry to be able to make Isk or even fly ships that wont just get killed in an instant from a gate ambush. This Update will kill any small org of a few players (like ours, which we are trying to grow). We are struggling to just make money in this game as it. We didn't play the game that you see in Youtube where we focused only on selling ore or making only high money value elements. We just moved to a new planet which took over two months (my total play time) and millions of quanta just so we can build a factory so we can help disrupt an over inflated market. This is all to encourage people to move off of Alioth. Our true aim is to be a ship manufacturer but we need money to sustain the building process and proto typing phases that incurs. This Game already has a lot to tackle for small orgs or solo players. This update will only cause more harm then good. (As a side not we also moved to another planet because my friend doesn't have a high end computer so we moved to a less populated planet so he can still play the game while he waits for money IRL to upgrade his PC)
I think if they want to stimulate that market, they need to have more avenues of income other than the aforementioned methods that are on youtube and daily login. If people have money that can be made more easily/readily, they will be more willing to spend it.
Like others said another fix is supply, whether that is make it a little easier to find ore or allow talents to increase your output of manufacturing. the more supply that can be put on the market the more prices will drop and allow for the more flow of quanta.
Focusing on PVP will also allow for the flow of good to be generated, as like in Eve, this will drive the production of good as stuff is destroyed. For with out a demand of stuff people, especially mega orgs, will only stock pile items or not manufacture for sale as there isn't a strong demand for them. tedious grinds is what kills games for the bulk of players.
These other fix like with anything can be exploited by Mega orgs but that is the nature of mega org. they have enough people to cope with any changes. If you want to help the market then you need avenues that drive competition not make it more of an monopoly for the Mega Orgs. It is better to have a bunch of small orgs that cause friendly competition then to do something that is more benefitable for mega orgs.
If this patch goes through and this games just becomes a place where if you are in a small group or solo you cant really play at all, I think I will just count my loss of a year subscription and forget this game. I like the game as is because it allow us to build something spectacular but this update will only kill it. If people have everything "too easily", then they are not dreaming big.
