    For the average player who is PLAYING and not just gold farming, this is a great time to buy fast flying for your 80s or anything similar.

    Say ppl do as you say and the old cats stack gold. Those same old cats have been here for a long time and know that before November you need to change your gold to real items since the gold will be squished at the end of the year. Then they start buying items on ah and get a lot of gold in items. When the squish finally happen they will lose like 5k gold instead of the 50-500k that they "should" have lost.
    Now the big cats have a lot of items worth a lot of gold and if they need gold they sell some items.

    !!! In other words: This is a good idea BUT it should just happen and not be announced.!!!

    Since ppl have been talking about gold squish since November prices have exploded. Not so much on icecrown horde than on icecrown ally but they have exploded and now they are going to reach the atmosphere! If we are lucky ppl will sell to lower prices after the squish but humans are not like that.
    Everyone wants to get their investments back and how do you get your investment back? You sell the stuff for the same price as when you bought it. Meaning why would you lower your price when you sell stuff when you can still take insane prices and ppl will pay it because they need it? So what 75% of the server can't buy it? The other 25% will buy enough for everyone...
    "!!! In other words: This is a good idea BUT it should just happen and not be announced.!!!"

    Well, sure, it would be nice if the squish happens randomly 1-2 times per year, at random times, with zero warning beforehand. That way, people can't convert their gold to mats.

    But either way, it doesn't matter so much that people convert their gold to mats. Because either way, the amount of gold on the server is halved.

    Look at it this way:

    - Before Squish: Server has 8 million gold coins, spread across all characters.
    - After Squish: Server has 4 million gold coins, spread across all characters.

    So even though some people convert gold to mats, the server itself is still healthier after even a pre-announced squish, because the total amount of gold has been reduced. Less gold in circulation.

    i think we're missing the point here:

    WHY do we want LESS gold in circulation?

    the answer is simple, with a TON of gold coins in circulation, gold becomes worthless (look it up, its called HYPERINFLATION)

    a yearly gold squish might solve the problem... for a while.. but deeper measures should be taken, from correcting respawn timers, drop chances, proc chances, eliminating farming bots, etc, otherwise there will ALLWAYS be more gold popping into the server, and thus, there will ALLWAYS be a gold squish

    For example ppl say like new player cant afford gold to buy some item.Boe items are now cheaper than ever you can buy waist for hpala for 100g even by doing quest you will be abble to afford it.Btw worthles is when you make more than 100k gold per day but right now its so hard to get even 5k gold per day.

    yeah hpala items are cheap. but go and try to buy a batterd hilt for pre-icc weapon (14k atm) a choker BoE for casters (40k atm), primordial saronites for a SE (this morning 850g now 1400) or 15 gems at 300+ each to fully gem a character (a grand total of 4500g), potions at 50g+ each and other necesary items. new players dont have the means to generate this massive ammounts of gold

    This is so ridiculous. I've donated over $100 to this server over the last year. I play casually and am close to epic flyer but will probably miss this deadline. Warmane, this is the hump that broke the camels back. RIP

    The first time you did it, we did not like it but said "ok". But doing it EVERY year! Come on!

    GMs obviously don't play the game.

    several years and people still whining because they don't know NEVER to hold on to more gold than they need for normal expenditures like repairs. laughs from his bank alts full of epic gems and primo's

    People don't realise these gold squishes are actually a blessing in disguise, instead of complaining about it, by looking at it as black and white, try to assess why these squishes are necessary, what they are to some extent trying preventing and how to best take advantage of the squish.

    I want to start with saying I love this server and the community.

    At the same time, doing this:

    Then later announcing this thread feels a little awful. Would just be nice not to feel like we are being told the truth.

    well that was 2018 this is 2019 :D

    It will not be as effective if it turns out that it is necessary to do it every year ... what about those who are trying to save gold to get the epic flying mount? **** and that's it? this will only cause people to leave the server because of an easily adulterable system.

    I totally understand that you're trying to keep in check the inflated economy, which so often happens on private servers. I get that. But for someone who only plays on an occasional basis, who has zero top level characters on most servers, and a plethora of characters with 10 gold or less—that's just harsh, and very defeating. Specifically on Outland.

    Instead of penalising the have-nots as much as you are the haves, why can't we be smart about this: For characters who have, say, 20 gold or less, they don't lose anything. Even if a person were to distribute their gold among all ten alts, in that example that would only amount to 200 gold. Naturally, you could adjust this low cap accordingly for each server.
