in terms of using it for like cubes and premium boxes, it is a ripoff and thats because of how messed up the market is

i will give you an example:

it costs 3.4k nx to try one premium box ok, and lets say it took you 7 tries to get a worthy perm equip thats like 5b

3,400 x 7 = 23.8k nx used

now, this is where the ripoff part comes in

people can buy mesos cheap, like someone can buy 5b for $10 and buy that perm equip which 23.8k nx ($23.80) was used to get that equip

and it gets much worse if you get crappy equips that are 1 bil and less from the 7 boxes lol

so whats the point of risking so much money for when you get so much less in return? big ripoff i would say

the market prices should be more logical and raised or the meso prices should be raised but everyone always trying to lowcut each other like idiots and it makes the items so cheap

then again, buying nx is always a ripoff hahh

its 2017 and the asians are still discussing if it's worth buying nx cash on an already dead game?

@wellness Despicable and most conniving methods of extracting $$$ no doubt. Especially when all of Nexin's RNG is fixed with a low % of obtaining highly desired items. In the end, it all comes down to choice nonetheless. Either you choose to feed the hungry cow or not.

For the longest time merching perm nx was my primary source of income, i never bought boxes I just bought and sold tradeable NX.

@chopin "the market prices should be more logical and raised or the meso prices should be raised but everyone always trying to lowcut each other like idiots and it makes the items so cheap"

I completely agree with you but prisoners dilemma is already tough enough with 2 players, having an thousands of young people who don't know about game theory or oligopolies controlling the economy you're going to run into many issues.

The a few things i would like to talk to you about with your concern, although I agree the market is overly saturated with perm NX and the producer surplus is lower than it should be, without somebody buying the NX the NX wont be there and supply would fall and price would raise.

The second thing is, like you said if you look at buying a perm nx box as buying a good and selling it, you make a net loss, but although this is true considering it like a good or a service isn't necessarily a good idea, you could look at it sort of similarly to purchasing a bond, or a piece of capital (kinda like how people use nebulites). Directly right off the back you may be paying 3.4k for maybe something that averages the value of 2.2k or something, but you aren't just spending 3.4 and getting 2.2 you are getting an asset with the current value of 2.2. It has value in being able to be moved around as an item, you don't have to sell it immediately. There can also be a depreciation value or an interest value, and if the interest value of the NX item exceeds the inflation rate of the meso (Which we already know the inflation rate of the meso is extremely high, as people seem to value 1 bil to about 2 USD when they used to value 1b to 10 USD, but i mean thats just how people see it not purchase it through illegal websites) then it can become a worthwhile investment, for example when the heros nx came out for the first time i bought a bunch of mystic phantom hats for about 600m, resold 2 for 7b and 1 for 10b before they rereleased them. Now on the other hand some other NX items depreciate over time, supply gets too high, nobody likes them, and they become worthless but its all part of the way things run.
Although I'm not saying i disagree with you, for the most part that buying surprise style boxes is a way to just lose money, its not profitable in the slightest, there is other ways of looking at this that you might have looked over.

@chopin

Buying Mesos is against TOS though, and while i agree that spending NX on RNG boxes or Royal Hair / Eye coupons is a complete waste of NX, I completely disagree with the meso prices being raised.. what the hell is the point of buying something over the meso cap? this will only encourage more scamming activity. the economy would be far better and much more fair if the prices were cheaper and affordable (for everyone), just like it is in mostly every other MMO

@endurance: I didn't actually mean to say that, I was speaking as if how I would feel as the person buying the nx boxes lol. I never buy perm nx boxes and I definitely wouldn't mind cheaper perm nx, it would save me mesos
