Is the dota 2 economy getting stupid ?

    Well, as the title says, is it ? People are giving 1 key for 7/8 rares, when rares are hard to get. If you buy an uncommon on the shop it costs 1€/1$ or something, and rare costs something like 2€ or something. So what the hell is wrong with this economy ?

    The shop price does not reflect an item's value most of the time.

    1. Where there is demand, there will be supply.
    2. Some people are impatient, so they might sacrifice everything to get just one key.
    3. Some people have imperfect knowledge about the Dota 2 buy-and-sell system (they don't know how much a key costs and a rare item costs).
    4. Some key sellers are greedy.

    Yeah, but it's just pure stupidity. A month ago 2/3 rares was a key, now they want the double. I have 400 hours, almost 500 hours of dota 2 and i don't have more than 20 or so rares therefore i get nothing.

    nothing wrong with the economy, this is simple consumer surplus

    'Consumer surplus or consumers' surplus is the monetary gain obtained by consumers because they are able to purchase a product for a price that is less than the highest price that they would be willing to pay.'

    Please review your Econs notes.

    This pretty much. Why you think Valve is in no hurry to finish the beta guys and keep pumping out overpriced cosmetics, it's cause it works

    I think it's because of the inflationary.
    There are too many drops, making their value dropped.

    Why valve has to reduce their own income?

    It's the other way around, the faster they get out of the closed state, the faster they have more players, thus more money in hats
    And if they just listen to the community and release one unpolished and unfinished hero per week, they would be making even more money

    Personally i think this thread is pointless, someone is raging off because he couldn't find his ideal trading requirement

    More like i can't sell anything that is worth my time and effort. I spent a lot of time playing and i can't get anything decent.
