Hey guys! Since the reset, the economy has been a bit.... Too well. That is, the sellback prices at the spawn shops have been way too high! Within a couple hours, some of you are making hundreds of thousands of CraftBucks. This isn't how it was intended. Let me explain! :)


When I began working on the new economic model for CraftBlock for the reset, I had player market competition in mind.

That is, the prices for which players buy things at the spawn shop should be high, and the prices at which players are able to sell them back to the spawn shops should be very low. Why?


It's simple. If the price for selling back to the spawn shops is really low, that leaves a lot of room for players to be able to sell to other players in order to make more money than they would otherwise be able to make! :D


Let's use the Diamond as an example. It is CB|8000 to purchase at the Bank. You can sell them back for CB|2000. 8000 - 2000 = 6000. There's 6000 CraftBucks of room there for you to sell higher than CB|2000. See what I mean?

Basically, the lower the sellback price is, the more competition there can be in the market among players.


Well, that problem currently is the sellback price is 25% of the buying price. That's way too high... When I was working on the economy, I decided on 5%, but that seemed too low. However, I'm regretting my decision to bump it up to 25% because right now, the economy has gone HAYWIRE!!




So, the sell prices have all been adjusted to 5% of the buy price. :)


Please check the next post for more information. It's very important!!

You have two choices to make right now...
  1. Keep your money, all earned through unintentionally bloated prices
  2. Reset your account and earn your fortune the right way :)
Number two is preferable... Come on, guys, you want to be honest, don't you? :)

I'm giving you a choice. You can request your account to be reset, and I'll gladly set you back to CB|5000 to get you started! :D


If you would like to have your account reset, just ask me in-game and I'll reset it for you! :)

I think I'm already down to 5k so that doesn't matter much.
But if someone is interested in buying 5 large chests full of pumpkins at 6% of the spawnshops price let me know XD

A large chest full of pumpkins used to give over 800 thousand. Idk if there was more items that was ridiculously easy to farm.

I would like option number 2. It's like exploiting a glitch to keep the old money.

U can reset my money, cus I got none, I usually earn my money of selling dirt, grass or hardened clay from mesas, and end up having to pay people for helping me or putting money into the town
