There may very well be a reversal on the cards to this statement. Surely the ubers can only hold onto the wepons they have for so long, each with 3-4 high efficiency/dps weapons in sales threads on PCF, watching newer guns being added to the game they DON'T loot, so as to de-value the guns they are sitting on, and won't use.Simple answer. Mindark controls the flow of weapons and Mindark clearly wants items to be very expensive.
Good luck bringing in new players to the game...
Invest in your avatar, sell your car, sell your house, sell your wife and perhaps after that you can hunt and play some Entropia.
It is a waiting game now.
