This is semi-incorrect. Guardians Rising value has gone up in the last couple of months. While some packs did lose a little more value over time, Guardians Rising instead of being raised to 1.25 on the guide (which the majority of the community agrees it went up to), the guide decided to just value GRI at 1.0, but adjusting around that instead. This means since GRI was kept at 1.0, instead of just being raised to 1.25, pack values had to be readjusted around it as well. I did this to make it easier on newcomers who wouldn't have to bust out a calculator for everything they looked up due to decimals.
Nothing lost value just because the Guide decided to keep GRI at 1.0 instead of raising it to 1.25.
Also, you can obtain most XY Packs 3:1 GRI quite easily. Meaning the value of them certainly sits around .33 for the most part. I agree though that more analysis is needed for us to get a more exact pinpoint on prices, so I've placed a warning in the mean time on top of the Card Value Guide.
People telling you to increase the GRI pack price are fools!
All the cards in the pack have gone down in value.
You can’t increase the packs value if all the cards inside are decreasing.
It makes no logical sense.
As Oldschool previous point out, The logic being applied here is more to do with the Stock Market.
A pack comes into the market. If people like it, The pack rises.
The pack will eventually peek.
Than it begins to make a decline.
This is the way it is always done.
Prices rarely go up by themselves once they start the decline process.
It takes outside help to give the item a chance to increase.
Let’s talk about a Game Company.
Xbox - PlayStation - Wii
What do the do?
They make a console which is new.
They have estimated price which they think it will sale for.
They put it in the market.
The market likes it!
The demand goes up.
The price of the console goes up.
Eventually, it will peek.
Than it starts it decline downward.
The object generally will always continue downward unless it gets help!
Smart companies know how to give it help!
How do you help it?
They release a new product that is an Attachment or Improves the old product!
The new product allows you to play in a 3D experince.
This helps the old product because people who want to try the 3D experince can’t achieve it with out the old product.
Thus, they would have to buy both.
The result is the old product rejuvenates it sales.
Now how does my example relate to GRI price?
Well the issue is GRI price has already been established.
The only way for it to go up when it is falling is to get rejuvenated similarly to my example.
The only way that can help is with new product(New Pack Release).
The new pack release has to attach or improve the old pack.
This did happen during the release of Forbidden Light pack.
Tapu Lele is a stable.
People were using Ultra Ball to search it.
The release of Forbidden Light gave a new card (Mysterious Treasure).
Decks with only Pyschic Pokémon could benefit from this change!
They could use MT discard 1 card vs UB discard 2 cards.
It’s an improvement!
Let’s say for argument sake that FL pack did cause a slight increase in GRI value.
Let’s say it increased 1.25.
The problem is this happen a month ago.
A month later, The Increase > Peek > Fall would have begun!
The price wouldn’t be at 1.25.
It would have gone down because time has gone by!
I feel Increasing the GRI at this point with out any cause is a No No.
It would only cause your guide to seem unreliable/suspicious.
We are at the start of July.
No new pack has come.
A new pack was released last month.
A new pack is supposed to release next month.
What can be said really?
You increase the value because of the Worlds Independence Day?
We won against the Aliens so we want to increase GRI value because we are excited!
Come it is a joke!
If I was you, I wouldn’t increase anything.
If they get upset, Tell them to “Let it go” like the movie Frozen!
Let go your desire to increase stuff!
Just let it go!
For the people who say, I traded a GRI pack for such & such value!
All I can say is good for you!
You traded with a person who party to hard.
The person you traded with couldn’t even speak his name let alone figure out what a good trade is!
Your trade was an exception to the rule, not the rule itself.
Let it go!
