Stop undercutting the market

SDS

You’re not doing anyone any favors, yourself included, if you put buy orders in that significantly undercut the value of a card.

Wouldn't that be my problem and not yours?

SDS

It is my problem when a player has a value that averages 800 stubs and people drop the price to 500 within 5 sell orders.

SDS

Trust me, it annoys me as well, but at that point, you just gotta wait. No one is here to do you any favors, they’re here to sell what they want to sell and get out.

Leave it at 800 and it should eventually correct itself. If not, it was overpriced and the people selling at lower prices were right.

Just a rant, I usually wait. It’s just super annoying.

Again let people do what they want with the market. Theres always cards/ways to make stubs you just need to find them. Sometimes people don't want to go up just 1 stub at a time if i'm waiting a long time for a card i'll definetly go up 500 or whatever it takes to get said card ditto goes for selling it. At the emd of the day though the market is about having patience it almost always levels itself.

SDS

What card are you trying to sell?

Tip: Patience makes more stubs than not.

And the market is much better latley. I've made 70k in the last 3 days.

I have no problem flipping, but when I know what I have with high silvers and people undercut by 2-300 stubs it’s frustrating.

SDS

I can’t stand when I’m trying to buy or sell something and I can tell I stumbled on to a flipper’s target with either one (buying or selling).

As soon as I can tell it’s a flipper, I tank the price on purpose. And make sure I do it right.

SDS

Did you miss economics class?

SDS

Isn’t the value of the card technically the quick sell value? Most live series, besides high diamonds will be near their QS value later in the year. So it is inevitable that cards will lose value over time, especially with the amount of free packs we get. But yes, the undercutting is annoying!

SDS

They've actually held their value better this year than ever before. Last year I was already buying 84 golds for 1100 stubs to do affinity exchanges.

SDS

They are consistently adding exchange requirements to their programs which will help keep bronze/silver cards fairly valuable for a while

SDS

Some people might want that sale right away....I've done it for 200 less because I needed the stubs for another purchase.....natural occurence plus for some it's a sure buy/sell!

you need to read the 2nd post in your ridiculous thread - read it over and over and over and over and over

and also learn to understand how markets work

SDS

Every time I pack something that shows a little value, I'm guessing at a price to sell it at and am never the wiser, especially with bronze and silver cards.

There's a lot of people who can't afford to spend money on this game. I know you can, so why intentionally ruin it for others who can't? It'd be one thing to do this sort of thing out of ignorance, but you do it out of spite and are for some reason proud of that. What bothers you so much about people trying to make stubs within MLB TS as opposed to without?
