I am writing this for the better.

At first I want to say I hope everyone is doing fine, I am not. I might came back to ManaCube which is alright but what is tearing me apart is seeing the pearl economy at his current state. As far as I know I do support Capitalism in real life and with that the theory of Adam Smith: the government need to leave the economy alone since it works best by supply & demand, competition (between sellers) and self-interest (you buy what you need/want). Nonetheless I am shocked about the price of a simple enderpearl. I saw prices raging from 1000 mana to 1500 mana and let's be honest, is that really what you guys want to pay for such item.

Now is my question and I am aware of the fact other players got the same question: "which ***** made those prices of those **** pearls so ******** high?". In order to bring the prices back to normal we need morality, support and love from everyone since it is the least we can do for people that tend to struggle on hard maps. If you don't do it for yourself then please, I ask you from the bottom of my heart, do it for the other. Now, I already know that this will be hard and that's why I offer, if this (bringing the prices of pearls back to 300-400 *MAX*) works, a 33k giveaway + my keys of the next month.

Thanks for reading till here my fellow investers, economists and players. From the past I, Corn, maybe know more than any other what it is to earn a lot of mana and the ways to success. Now I am back to gain a lot again but still for giving away purposes, this will be my first step in the right direction of making parkour a slightly bit better.

Kind regards,
Corn Job.

as a matter of fact, the person who inflated the price is now banned, but for different reasons.

pearls used to be like 1-2k before a certain someone crashed it down to the 300-400 you're used to

but due to new things like cash cow id argue the price could be moved down to 750 at bottom barrel

like it or not the prices you guys are used to aren't what they should be and the fact they're back to normal sort of is a positive as it deters pearl usage so people actually do... parkour on the parkour server

you may not like hearing this cause you wanna keep your 300-400 prices but it just aint realistic

"which ***** made those prices of those **** pearls so ******** high?"
Im guilty of reselling a bunch of pearls too. I was very surprised to see that the price had gone up about ~1000 mana after a few months of not playing though. I used to think 500 was a heavy price.

Im guessing that the total amount of pearls in circulation has consistently been going down since the burst of new players from dream which is why the prices keep going up. Pearl prices aren't going to go down permanently unless they permanently become a lot easier to get.

Pearl prices rose in last winter of 2020 when the xmas 2020 tag came out. In order to get this tag, in the beginning you needed pearls. Since everyone wanted it people would buy pearls at crazy high prices because people needed them for the tag.

The economy just never settled down after this.

There were actually launch pads put in place so players didn't have to use pearls lol just thought this was funny

Toltally agree with your point. I appreciate your efforts to make parkour a better place and will try not to overprice perals as well.

Are the pearls genuinely worth more than 300 tho to me it seems like they are like people are still clearly gaining utility even at these high prices and because of there high prices less can be bought so while utility will decrease it does is it at a near unmoving rate. Bam ap econ baby

I don't sell the pearls I buy them and I pay however much, I don't mind.

300-400 would be great though much cheaper than like 850.
