The market is in a frenzy and prices have gone up over 25% in some cases especially in the rattlesnack and other popular faction based ships.

That news mail showing the drop rate was being reduced should of stated an over all drop reduction % or expected result versus the old result, with out this information CCP has just made another ship unaccessable to a great number of people. It's only thing to pay 350m for a ship it's another to pay 530m.

Perhaps this is the point all a long to raise prices so players buy plex in order to buy the ships they want?

I fear this market change is going to be perm unless a member of CCP comes out and states the actual change ratio/percentage. I am a Senior Game Moderator for another company and I happen to be trusted internally with important information, one thing we never tell our player base is what items are dropping and if any chances are made to the drop chance, because we do not want to influence the economy.

CCP needs to start taking this approach when it comes to what drops where and how much, keeping a tight lip keeps things nice for all the playerbase.

I will admit that I am incredibly disappointed with the announcement of that specific change, it's likely that the chance is so insignificant and only affects a fraction of what the player base is speculating it to actually effect. Buy orders shot up from 325m to 472m in a matter of 4 day, please CCP acknowledge in a separate post what the Faction BPC change drop rate actually went down to, so we can settle this economy.

Well part of the changes is a mineral change in the build costs, you kind of have to tell people about that, CCP generally tells people when they are changing important drop rates, it might not be what the company you deal with does, but thats how CCP does it, the changes would have affect the economy either way :P

Pirate battleships have been uber cheap for a long time. Even 500 million is cheap compared to where they used to be. I'm not saying they need to be a billion ISK again, but they need to be expensive enough that they aren't the defacto choice for battleship fleets, because why fly a tempest when the Mach does a better job in nearly every respect, and only costs a hundred million more?

With the new prices, there's actually a reason to choose a T1 BS again for fleet work .

Or at least there will be once everyone works through their current stock of pirate hulls.
