Sometimes I buy cards that have a really high value, and right after the purchase the market value is reevaluated to less than the value I bought the card for. Other times I buy a high-value card for much less than the market value, and the market value is almost not affected at all by the transaction.

I think it's impacted by the bids/asks on the card, as well as the previous sell prices.

It’s important to note the actual price you pay, as sometimes if you pay high enough over the previous bid it will go to a lower amount than what you bid. On your second example I think you should look at the amount of trades its gone through, as the rule of large numbers would dictate that basically any deviation from the average would basically be moot after a certain point. But yes, I too find market values frustrating, and I feel really dumb for overpaying sometimes :(

I just disregard market value unless it's a legendary, or if I'm trying to transfer cards.

I use it a lot when I put up an ask for epics, but other than that it doesn’t really concern me, unless I think I can get a hit on a card, then I’ll sell it.

Edit: It’s unrelated but I was searching for a ‘most valuable card’ and the card I deemed the most valuable (that is to say I discounted commons that had been artificially raised and what not) was ‘soops’ but I haven’t heard a whole lot about a ‘soops’ does anyone know why his value is so high?

I'm guessing it's because soops is an ex-nation, which I think means that it can't be discovered in packs anymore? Not sure. Also it once sold for 3000 bank, which would probably make the market value higher.

I saw both those things, but I was more leaning to why did it sell that much, as there are other ex-nations that are legendaries that haven’t reached near that price.

Noahs Second Country's puppet had enough bank to buy 10 copies from Noahs Second Country, so the puppet bid on the main's asks, essentially increasing the value to 666. Also, if you think that's a lot; think again. Noah bid on himself 10,000, the max you can bid on a card (and ask)

Anyways, congrats to Kuriko for the commendation!

I saw that as well, but (and I’ll be pretty blunt here) was soops important to Nationstates, or is the card expensive by chance.

whats happening with the new SC proposal?
