    Default You guys are getting it wrong. It's not the WLS that are inflating.

    Pinballs used to sell for 60-85 per wl. Now they sell for 180-200 per wl. If you could now buy more pinballs for the same 1 wl, that actually means the value of world locks is deflating, not inflating.

    Actually, it is pinballs and other farmables that we see high inflation. You can thank the BFG worlds by which people can get thousands of seeds to plant very quickly. More farmables are being harvested everyday and since there are more farmables in circulation, it is no wonder why there is so much inflation.

    Inflation in this case is more so about the quantity than the value. Yes, the value of World Locks is deflating, but the amount of World Locks in the game is inflating.

    Buy Worlds are actually getting more expensive. I think this is mainly because of the new lock you can get by grouping 100dls. Before, people could only set prices as high as 200 dls.

    Actually most of them are just overpriced and some people follow the trend.

    Essentially, inflation of world locks stems from the inflation of gems. World locks cannot spontaneously be introduced into the game without an even exchange. Locating the source from which these are being introduced is facile: BFGs. Free labor means more people have access to gems, which means more people can purchase world locks from the store — but that is unlikely. Probably, the inflation of world locks comes from profit-driven consumers that drive prices upward in pursuit of profit.

    I am no economist though. This is more a hypothesis than anything.

    Think about this. The world locks that you have in your inventory, someone had purchased them with gems.

    Nominal terms - more expensive.

    In real terms - not sure possibly, cheaper.

    Its the vending machines, buy+ worlds and BFGS that changed the economy.
    Back in the day if you wanted to sell the items you mass produced you had to broadcast your world. There was no place for specific customers. People went to seeds and seediary to sell/buy their expensive items. Now there is a buy+ world for every single item in the game which makes everything so much easier to find and that messes with the economy.

    Worldlocks are inflating but farmables have an even higher inflation rate, which is why they get cheaper. If you compare the price of other items to one year ago they all got more expensive because of the wl inflation.
