Blackbeard is love. Blackbeard is life.
Worst thing he's done is give information. It's on the person to do whatever the Fuck they want to do with it. Unless of course he went into each of your homes with a gun to your head telling to be retards and ban yourselves flipping too many copies of Cory in the House.


Are you insane? Who would be crazy enough to flip the most valuable game of all time? The absolute madmen!

When you jerk off and cum on your hands, and you sit there for a second in satisfaction, then slight regret as you realize what you did. I feel like this is what you are dealing with with this post.

 

You're doing it wrong.

Funny how almost everyone defending blackbeard has an account made this past summer. It's as if they only joined CAG in hopes of getting access to his stupid sheets when he decided to put restrictions on them.

they were referred by dj kunai for the TIV bonus

Papa mole, Mama mole and Baby mole wake up one morning. Papa mole sticks his head out of the tunnel and says, "I smell maple syrup." Mama mole pops up beside him and says, "I smell maple syrup, too." Baby mole tries, but he can't squeeze past them to stick his head out, too. He says, "All I smell is molasses."

I’ll defend him, and I have had my account over a decade. Sounds like you are pissed because you don’t have access to the sheets.

I don't think that I could love you more.

Why is it that all the top tier games took a big TIV hit the past couple days, yet all of the Redbox flip remain intact? Am I missing something?

I believe the TIV algorithm takes into account volume traded and volume in stock. Works similar l like trading equities. Overvalued items are traded at a higher volume eroding the TIV. As a high volume gets traded gamestop doesn't want them because they become overstocked so they tank TIV to curtail trade ins.

As far as redbox goes, those games suffer from redbox theft - rent the game, return just the sticker. Stolen redbox games are most likely traded for cash and not trade credit. Games traded for cash have a higher profit margin, and are thus less likely to have an impact on TIV.

I have feeling gamestop has become more focused on turnover rates for traded items as this is where the bulk of profits come from. As an unintended consequence, perhaps it's considered acceptable collateral damage, is the effect it has on CAGs.

Dang, these TIV's are pretty brutal right now. I don't know if I should just wait to see if they'll go back up or bite the bullet and just use the 50% certificate. I think I'll just wait though.

Something to take into consideration is the psychology of price anchoring in investing/trading/selling.

" Anchoring is a cognitive bias that describes the common human tendency to rely too heavily on the first piece of information offered (the "anchor") when making decisions. During decision making, anchoring occurs when individuals use an initial piece of information to make subsequent judgments. Once an anchor is set, other judgments are made by adjusting away from that anchor, and there is a bias toward interpreting other information around the anchor. For example, the initial price offered for a used car sets the standard for the rest of the negotiations, so that prices lower than the initial price seem more reasonable even if they are still higher than what the car is really worth." - https://www.pon.harv...choring-effect/4a2740622aedcff2932a2e6e727e56c6.jpg

Hmmmm... funny how the only time this Ubi / ihadmail / TooLegit multiple alt character doesn't post 18 times on a page is whenever there's mole discussion is going on.

Those are the wrong alt accounts. I have 14 other accounts on CAG and you didn't even guess one correctly.
