I'm completely torn over whether this is good or bad. It's a pretty thorough post Shrouded so props there since you obviously know what you're doing. I guess I'm just a little worried/jealous that my profits will be going down now. I'm not gonna make a fuss over it, because it does require work to be able to use this properly and to know how to make a profit.. but it just kinda feels like a guarded secret has been let loose that could level the playing field pretty quickly.
I'm not sure how to feel about this either. I didn't know about EC2 until just now. I'm relatively new to Abrosia, and I've struggled to get profits. I make about 60-200K a day ABing at low-profit shops, but that's because I'm a nonadvanced user. I always miss stuff in the attic, even when I leave Abrosia attic on for hours and hours...
Seeing as EC2 can make 70+ mil in a week...well...I don't know. What can you do with 70 mil? In a month, that's 280 mil, in a year, probably two billion. I don't know how you could accumulate such wealth without catching TNT's eye, except for buying expensive gallery items and pooling it among side accounts.
In the end though, now that EC2 has been released for the world to see, I doubt I'd be seeing much profits in the attic much longer. So, it's a mixed kind of deal, releasing for the world to see. It certainly levels out the playing field, but now the profits are not nearly as much, and probably won't last much longer once TNT addresses the issue.
There's probably another new EC2 out there, the next high-profit highly-guarded secret. I can't imagine releasing a secret like this, unless there was a new one.
