    this is how it works:

    you join the swarm for something you want, and try to spread the word. the more people that join, the better. suppliers for the product start bidding against each other and the prices start to drop (lowest bidder wins). then the buyer exchanges information with the seller, and collects the product

    if its $150/1000 rounds now, you can almost bet that it will drop at the end of the period (approx. 4 weeks) :dunno:

    I'm not, but that gun is in mothballs for awhile. Great shooter and all, but the ranges we have + ammo cost = no HMR for awhile :hs:

    PS: Got your mail, I'll hand it over sunday. Don't forget the key :squint:

    so suppliers can bid at any time, but as soon as they do you cant join the swarm right? then for 48 hours suppliers bid and the price drops?

    thats my understanding
