Lets see the point of this event:
Your acquired stabilizers become tradeable. Which means they have a value.
Their value is usually close to the sell value of the item they will be used for.
The minimum used weapons to make every said fused weapon (now its called upgraded,because the word does not imply the resources you used to achieve it) is 2.
Yes, we got some weapons “free” from battlepasses, and some of them might be from lighter resource trade but its unimportant because simply you need stabilizers to un-fuse the weapon, and stabilisers have a value, which means you are spending value to get value…
And given the fact that you need a lot of stabilizers to do anything and as it is natural the part of the market that remains free is determining their value pretty close to the actual items you will un-fuse.
All that to get what? A weapon which you will be able to sell for almost the same amount you bought the stabilizers for, or a weapon you may use in another fusion.
For the economic rookies, even if you only use stabilizers that you got from leveling, you are still losing the money you would get from selling them.
So, summing up, this event is at its very best a zero sum game.
Why not get 2 items from un-fusion? Stabilizers would cost more so the game would be again zero sum, but at least the players would actually get something more back to make their life easier when they refuse them.
But maybe the market will flood with items! Like i said, it would be idiotic to un-fuse for sell because you lose the value of stabilizers in the first place.
Also, for the very few items that un-fusing might be actually worth something, like it was for a legendary autocannon a while back, who cares? Worst thing that happened then was the first people that sold it go a lot of gold but after a day or so the gun was at an almost normal price for everyone to buy…So unless you unfused AND SOLD IT within the first few hours, tough luck.
So what is the purpose of this event? None, really, just to make you feel that the stabilizers you get from leveling are worth something, or if you are desperate enough to accept that kind of deal as described above.
I have a lot of items i could un-fuse but i dont see any other reason other than selling my stabilizers, its better to keep them in case they get buffed.
Did these events came from the same brilliant minds that brought us the forced brawl that ended a couple of days ago? Seems like it.
PS: Since now you got rid of space armor and with the recent buffs and ners, gerrida releace etc, we finally seem to be having something very close to a decent game in our hands… Isnt it about time those tactics that resemble scammy mobile phone games get abolished once and for all?
