KoDoRiN Posted February 9, 2014 Share Posted February 9, 2014 Here I'm seeing that backpack.tf highly values the most commonly traded price a lot for their prices. They say quicksell is only 1 factor, but the most commonly traded price > all. I disagree. Availability is an important factor too. Let's be honest here. Let's say a ToD Ticket gets traded at 3 ref 100 times, but there's none in the market for 3 ref. 3.11-3.33 gets traded plenty of times too, but not as much as 3 ref. Naturally backpack.tf values the most commonly traded price as 3 ref and accepts it into the range. http://puu.sh/6PsuH.png Quoting naknak when keys were being proposed at 6.66: "can you cite a single open trade at 6.66? If there are zero keys for sale at that price, then that's not the price of keys." Realistically, if I wanted a ToD ticket for 3 ref, but I can't find any in the market for 3 ref, then it's not the correct price if there's none in the market for 3 ref, even though it's traded at that value 100 times. What I'm proposing is this To factor in the most commonly traded price then you must at least provide one active seller (i.e. not offline) that has not quicksold theirs in less than 30 mins-1 hour. Otherwise, I'm thinking that it should be invalid. I'm seriously sick and tired seeing the most commonly traded price as a big factor to a suggestion, I never really took it seriously. If there's none in the market for 3 ref, then that is not the correct price. This is what makes backpack.tf kind of unreliable, realistically why would you ever sell keys at 7 ref when there's buyers at 7 ref? We both know that it can at least get 7.11 within a couple hours. Hell you can find buyers at 7.11. *cough* Awesome *cough* There's a reason why a lot of people don't follow backpack.tf when it comes to things like keys where it heavily relies on the most commonly traded price. This is for raising an item of course. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
