I believe that temperance to lux was always an err. Lux isnt an investment its a classification of items needed for standard game play... But the problem is OTM set up a precedent for lux to have these high values. And now... reversal would hurt a lot of players who made investments along these lines.
Imagine you invest in gold because you know there is a strict supply of gold on earth right? And golds value is always (almost always...) going up, so you know it is a safe long term investment. All of a sudden the federal government sells off some gold as they think the market needs to be adjusted (in the us, people wanted the usfg to do something similar with silver). Now your gold stock is basically worthless...
While at times there is a need for changes, i think that otm needs to be mindful on the fact that they were the ones who set the past precedent and need to find a way to bring back this needed lux in a way where economies and investors aren't screwed over. In my opinion, the best way is to make 6 lux spots in shop, with even distribution among items (if it isn't already that way), with the lux shop reseting automatically every 10-15 days if no item was bought.
Lux isn't like the pirate shop. I get the need for a gold sink but what OTM needs to realize is that the players with the large gold stocks usually aren't the players who need the items, otherwise they can afford to buy them on the open market.
By restructuring the lux shop, OTM doesn't immediately release large volumes of lux items, but sets a curve for over time restoring lux prices to a reasonable value. This allows for the market to adjust over time instead of having to shock adjust itself overnight.
