But you need the purple BCM stones to craft the weapon skins. Each one is like $750 worth of materials assuming average luck. The fact that whales found a better, cheaper route I’m sure worried them enough into a ban. I’m sure they lost loads of money on stigma enchantment stones. I doubt they wanted to see a second go of that
I’d be interested to see how much ncsoft west has made from this celestial skin event. I’m willing to bet no one was buying off bcm, and instead opting to buy them off broker which were much cheaper. So they dropped the ban hammer to protect their bottom line.
