It might sell to you faster in the short term undercutting prices, but over the course of multiple days, the demand for bushels is defined. People aren’t going to change their strat this reset if food is $59 rather than $34.
Yeah they do...... depending on the strat you can hold turns quite easily. That drops demand which in turn means that prices will fall. It is simple economics - by manipulating when you play, you can influence the demand for a certain product.
Another thing is bot distribution. If you get more casher bots than normal then demand for food will change. The number of farmer bots will have an impact on supply. The strat is based on the countrugh number, so there is not alwsys an even distribution through the strats.
The demand for bushels has a vague definition but cannot be classed as defined. It depends on strat makeup, playing styles, number of kills/deletions/suiciders. If finishing nws are low it would indicate a smaller demand for business throughout the set as fewer bushels will be stocked.
The whole 'everyone just sell higher' has been tried for years and guess what..... it is rubbish. Supply and demsnd always governs price.
