there is no assumption here. fact is the market has been more empty than it has ever been even on eventless months (Which we always had). and its only going to get worse. all type of grinding generates silver but it also generate resources, scrolls/BMC/accessories. so it generates supply aswell. payouts and to a lesser extent, trading of all kind, generates MUCH lower silver income than seamonsters. and also over longer periods of time. i didnt say the economy was good before this. obviously event based economy and the way the pre-order system works, slowly works up the inflation. we were feeling it overtime, but in a much slower rate. seamonster just gave that process a huge boots. and that's the reason the market is empty and you are getting 200m pre orders on base ogre rings.
