Quote from k0no »Quote from Mana Goat »"We believe the elimination of MSRP will simply help us communicate better to our players and the places where those players shop."
Not sure what WOTC is thinking but it isn't a desire to make things easier for us to understand. Less information rarely is a good thing, like driving with no depth perception.
if the US and parts of Europe were the only places in the whole world, sure.
but there's other places.
Tell me, where did I say anything about the US or EU? No where? Why yes, that is correct. Because it affects all consumers regardless of geographic location.
Removing the MSRP might have some short term benefits as you have mentioned, but I doubt it is for us the consumer. Most actions taken by a company are for the company and the stock holders, even if it hurts the consumer. And taking the MSRP away hurts all consumers because it leaves us more open to price gouging and scalpers.
