I don't anticipate that aggregate MT "wealth" is as concentrated as you're positing. And aswell don't accept that there is price-fixing the way you brainstorm may exist.
Obviously, humans use CE to set >100K BIN prices. And this does accept a bad aftereffect on the AH in general, because humans who advertise by accustomed bargain at atomic yield the accident of cheap NBA 2K18 MT Coins that their agenda will advertise for beneath than what could gotten via super-high BIN.
That said, they still can abandoned advertise for as top as anyone is accommodating to buy NBA 2K18 MT.
And if they buy up accepting at 300-400K to try and advertise at 1M, then: A) they still accept to win those auctions, and B) they are demography a accident if the cards don't advertise for higher.
But I'm abandoned adjoin aftereffect of effect, not that the aftereffect isn't bad. It is.
The way that PC cheating ends up ability the market, as far as I've seen, is to accomplish the extremes added extreme.
Stuff that is over 100K on animate is maybe 1M+ or multi-millions on PC. But anybody on PC can buy the non-super-rare accepting for cheaper than animate players can.
So the best of the best become unaffordable unless you're acceptable at authoritative MT on the AH.
But I anticipate the net aftereffect for a lot of players is beneficial, because accepting like Moments Rubies and Amethysts should be abounding added affordable to those who abandoned bullwork MT through gameplay.
I begin it simple to accomplish millions of MT on the AH on PC. Concluded 2K17 with a lot of Diamonds in the game, except for the ultra-rare accepting like the prime Porzingis, Diamond KG, Diamond AD, etc.
Ultimately, the botheration was that, on West Coast, in actuality beneath than 10 humans consistently played online. And two of them were cheaters.
