    It's very clear they are devaluing dungeons. Looks like WvW will be getting added drops, which it desperately needs. Rewards there are terrible compared to other content.  
    Economy changes, like what has been mentioned in that article, truly only benefit the speculators that TP invest. They are, an still will be, the 1%. The rest of us will adjust over time and probably not feel too many bumps. 
    The one take away investing hint for me was leather. It's been worthless and it's clear the new systems are going to try to make everything worth something. 
    Leather prices have tripled since Monday (13c to 42c sell) based on this info. The next most worthless in the same tier (5) is Mithril 68c and Elder Wood Logs 82c.
    I would guess their target is 1s for tier five mats. Humans tend to like simple targets like that.  
    Thick leather, even at today's prices, may be a double your money bet in the long run. If you had purchased on Monday it's likely a 700%+ gain.

    Suddenly  I am not understanding them, it almost seems like they are trying to make it into a different game to appeal to a different audience. Rather then add to the game the veterans know and love. World versus world  changes, as many veterans scratching their heads, dungeons which  is one of the cores  of pve,  is been made almost irrelevant. If they are afraid of free players getting too much gold in and inflating the market and they should've just limited the amount free players can obtain similar to Star Wars the old republic.

    I'm assuming that there's be some world-hopping activity, like Pumpking Carving from last year - should be easy to roll it in for those who like multitasking.  But I'm happy to do some world completion on an alt (my main is at 92% and I don't feel like finishing until I actually need a Gift).

    From War Council to War Roundtable
    Greetings everyone,
    Thanks for posting your feedback in the "Organizing TC" thread. The server leaders and forum staff have been reading and deconstructing everything that's been posted.
    I apologize for the amount of time it's taken to make this post. A lot of thinking went into this, and I wanted to make a comprehensive reply to address everyone's concerns.
    Across all discussion here, on FTT, and the last bits of discussion on TCWvW before it went down, here are the main points that the community came forward with:
    A need for greater transparency, from the Server Leadership and War CouncilInclude more people into the discussion (such as drivers)More effective discussion: Action to be taken after discussion is made, rather than having discussion drag onHistorically there has been little worthwhile discussion in War Council sectionsIn regards to these issues, some have suggested the removal of such forums. If we can't have meaningful discussions, why have such a section at all?
    Thinking it over, the meaning of a War Council section is to get high-level discussions between leaders in regards to WvW or server matters. While we are not in Tier 1 anymore, HoT is on the way and it's likely going to bring a whole lot of unknowns our server will have to deal with.
    If this type of forum does not exist, we cannot effectively or potentially organize. It's not that people and guilds cannot effectively organize on their own behind the scenes, the issue is that if such a section does not exist, we don't have a place to put said meaningful conversations when they need to happen.
    Even if the meaningful discussions are possibly few and far between, having such a section still prepares us for what's to come. Whether there is a shift in the status-quo between tiers, or Anet decides to scrap the entire server-related model for WvW, there needs to be a place where we can get clear high level discussion between leaders. We need a clear voice from every guild and collective group so server-wide decisions can be made.
    So if we need such a section, how do we make discussions there more effective? Increase the restrictions or lower them? Carefully watch how many times a person posts?
    In order to make a more effective War Council, we need to allow a few more people into the discussion, and we also need the server's elected leaders to be actively engaged with the server's community.
    With that, we are now allowing drivers to be part of the discussion. We've seen that leadership is not bound to just being a guild leader. Over the history of TC, many leaders have come and gone, many of which went beyond raising the banner of a single guild.
    We are also raising the representative count to 3, to account for larger guilds. This does not affect votes, as each guild still has 1 vote in discussions that ask for them.
    Because of that fact that we will be including more of the community into the discussion, the War Council will now be known as the "War Roundtable".
    We're also asking the Server Leaders to take a more proactive role in discussions with server's community. Chicken Caesar, Prosecute, and Kin Bear have expressed that they want to get more involved in more open and meaningful discussions. In the last War Council, each of them were elected by leaders of the community, and each of them want to make sure they are doing their best at representing our server, as well as working with your collective feedback inside the War Roundtable and outside of it.
    To get them further involved, the applications to the War Roundtable will now be reviewed by elected Server Leaders instead of forum staff. While someone can argue there can be potential favoritism or elitism because of this, this is to get Server Leaders to understand who are the other leaders within the community, to reach out to them and work with them. While forum staff could be in-tune with what's happening in the server's WvW community, they are not elected leadership and should not make decisions in these matters.
    Every 3 months, the War Council is cleaned out and filled back in, and the Server Leaders are elected or re-elected afterwards. This cycle is to ensure that the community votes through their leadership the best people that represent and understand them.
    There are still some restrictions, and likely some guidelines to tweak even after this is all established, but the goal here is to have more involved leadership and more constructive discussions.
    Also regarding new and upcoming drivers, the staff is working on building a section in TC101 to provide assistance, training, and discussion for them. We'll soon be asking your input for it.
    Again, thanks for all your feedback, and together we will continue to work and refine what works best for the Tarnished Coast.
    - Ryv
     
    Here is the final draft of application rules starting today:
    The War Roundtable is a forum for active discussion of WvW related matters between guild leadership, drivers, and elected server leaders and the TC Community.
    Applications will be approved by the Server Leaders with a response of APPROVED or DECLINED (if declined, a reason stating why will be attached). Forum staff will make the appropriate rank adjustments.
    Each guild can have up to 3 representatives. Having 3 reps does not give said guild any extra votes. Each guild has only 1 vote (and only one person should speak up with that vote) when it comes to making any important group-wide votes proposed by the Server Leaders.
    Individual drivers that apply to the War Roundtable do not have a vote if they are already affiliated with a guild that is in the War Roundtable.
    Applying as a Guild
    Requirements:
    Must be a TC guildMust raid 2+ nights a weekRaid size must be legitimately 5+ playersThe guild must have existed 1 month prior to each election cycle (every 3 months).
