I would be very interested about the AFK sweating thing, AFAIK there is still some attention required (and much more than AFK clicking BSMs) even if you sweat at nea's place in a group.well your analog is wrong aswell.
were at the point where we call sweating "work" again.
People that call afk sweating work, have never seen real work in their life. Come to my construction site and ill show you what it means to work.
Your definition of "work" seems to be pretty narrowed here. What you said may be true if we are talking about some games where exchange between in-game currency and real-life cash is illegal or nearly impossible, but EU is a game where the PEDs you earned, through whatever means allowed in-game, can be exchanged into real-life money. So yes, they are putting efforts and works into this game, gathering something for others in return of PEDs, which can then be withdrawn. That is working, although the salary is a bit pathetic currently.People that come home from their job, when they log on, they dont consider this being more work, they consider themselves playing the game, while with the pro sweaters you will hear every second one telling you how much effort and work hes put in....
Even if you still don't consider them "working" but just "playing the game", they are just a group of players who understand the need of others (i.e. they do not want to stop hunting proterons, big leviathans or scipulors to sweat), provide the service and get some money in return. People created a market for that and they are just taking advantage of this market to gain some PEDs.
Back to the original topic: As for trying to raising the price, it is of course very natural that people want to sell their items for higher prices, and this is especially true in a game where real money are concerned. But this is currently not very possible unless you can monopoly all the sweaters in-game, which is not very likely to happen. The best you can hope is that sweats ever become useful one day and the price will go up again.
