Exclamation Stop rising the price of keys for no apparent reason

Keys have been really low on demand lately and it's really time for a price drop due to no new crates, almost all Salvageds are gone and there's no point to keeping them this high except to inflate their dollar price(the increase is a joke).

They should be much much lower after 2 months of no new series.

Not to mention that spreadsheet that every trader uses as if it were a gospel truth.

I think its due to keys being used much more as currency. Most of the trades I've seen on outpost have the op asking for keys rather then metal.

Yeah, probably, but it's still greedy as of them to actually rise the price just for that reason because purchase of keys has been high and selling low.

Oh god don't remind me.

Every single prick on those trade servers think you can't buy nor sell for a scrap above or below those spreadsheet prices.

They don't understand even basic economics.

Yeah I agree. Most of the larger more successful traders state in the trade note box that they accept keys as "2.66" or "2.77". These are the people that are making keys more expensive.

Just a bit ago, way after the 2012 cut, it was increased to 2.5 momentarily. Now it's 2.55(???) and people are starting to ask for 2.66 again till we get the 2.7 price again for no reason.

The reason for this is because refined is losing value.....

It's been month that people ask for 2.66. But you can still find 2 for 5 ref pretty easily.

The fact is a key is 2.5$/2€ and refined price is going down down down, cause you know everybody can have multi account and have a lot of ref.

So the value of ref decrease, and the value of key increase.
