It's an examination of the Finds and Trade History of high value Legendary cards, focusing on the inflation driven duplicate card sales by a subset of players. I am only picking out the cards. The game stats recorded the various players involved. Analysis of the data reveals the same players are involved on multiple occasions in these transactions. Behavioral conclusions could eventually be drawn.

TACLS is nothing.

TCALS is the Trading Card Anti-Laundering System; it's a game system that makes cards at auction more likely to appear in packs to make the auction system more risky to use for things like transferring rare cards and moving bank between puppets. Because of this some players have chosen to use it as a way to duplicate high value cards to boost their own deck value.

I'm not aware of any of them that have duplicated cards for the sole purpose of selling them and gaining bank, since you can gain plenty of bank without doing that, but it's possible that some people have done that in the past. However, it's not the way that most players with large banks have gotten that bank.

I freely admit that I have utilized TCALS with help from Big Farma. However, I only do it when a friend or I need a copy of a card for a collection. For example, four copies of https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 4/season=1 were minted two-and-a-half months ago for Vylixan, Phil, Seanat, and I (after I had wrangled the original copy).

They've been causing all kinds of trouble if there's a whole thread tracking their abuses.

Could someone tell me please, what reason does the whole rarity of cards system still have, if it can be bypassed so easily by pull events ?

As the rarity grows, more bank, time, and luck is required to mint more copies. When everyone is organized for a legendary PE, it becomes easier only because it is a group event.

ngl - there were times when i didn't know, like after getting me a belly full of beer, booze, food and a night of party girls. Still,all in all it was good to be home run king. But thank god for cabbies and roommates. They knew everything i didn't.

I don't know, but in baseball the awful mess caused by the 1919 Chicago Black Sox scandal almost ruined the game.

After that fiasco, Commissioner Landis banned players then livened up the ball so I quit pitching and shattered the home run records. If the baseball bosses hadn't done it the memory of that disgrace wouldn't have faded fast enough.

Well looky here, i never needed to throw the spitball and that got outlawed for the good of the game, buddy. The league office did let some o' them bums to keep usin' it till they retired. But all of baseball knew who they were.

you are wrong,
TACLS was the only thing that COULD check inflation. Bare luck
now low-owner cards can all be inflated, and we, who don't have the power will be powerless to interfere.

as I explained, to prevent heists, inflators had to do low bid for and hours, before making their big transfers. but as the value of the cards, low transfer only bring MV sharks, Now, you can directly start the Sell at 8000, and watch for 1 hours, no one will be able to touch it.
before someone would certainly tacls it and drop you, aint possible.

...which could easily be stopped by seting some kind of (reasonable) price-cap for auctioned cards by "the system". As I have interpreted the announcement, there are some more changes planned to get the game back on the rails, and I sure hope, this one will be one, along with a stop to "overstocking" and "farming big".
