The (almost) past 10th anniversary event has driven the food consumption and therefore food prices stupidly high.
I mean I can't complain. At the beginning of the 100/6 I stored enough food to earn millions and also have a high WaM production of food on my own, enough to earn me a few more millions.
The idea I got today is... in RL they say you can't eat money. But why does this have to be true in eRepublik?
You could hardcap the food prices and provide infitnite food supllies during phases of too high demand by enabling to eat CC instead of Food.
The price could be 1cc/hp or 1cc/q1 food (= 0.5cc/hp). 1cc per Q1 food was more or less the highest price reached on the world market during the event.
Funny thing is, we can already fly using money instead of moving tickets, so why not also eat it?
A positive side effect is that with crazy high hp/6min events, cc could be burned to fight or prevent inflation from TP medals.
Maybe something like this could make sense at April Foools Day if it doesn't make sense to implement it permanently.
