I've been dealing in Llamas since mid april, and I've made a few findings.
- I've turned it into a science. I don't really find it surprising though, because I usually do this with anything involving numbers. For example, I had an excel spreadsheet to track my BF2142 FAV kills. After covering this point, the rest of this journal entry should make a lot more sense.
- There are accounts dedicated to giving out Llamas, like ~llamawhore
. They probably use code to randomly pick deviants and give out llamas, because seriously, who has the time to personally give out 1.2 million llamas?
- If you want lots of llamas, you usually need to give lots of them first. Using [link]
(Random Deviant) to find people is good, but you'll find that a lot won't return any. As a general rule, any deviant with an albino llama or higher will most likely return a llama. But if you want higher returns, check their badge page to see if they've sent more than they've received.
(Random Deviant) is good, but there is a more efficient way to find people likely to return a llama. Look on badge page of any deviant ([link]
(like mine)), and search for any deviants that give llama badges. If that deviant gives llamas to other people, they will most likely give one to you.
- Once you reach a certain number of llamas, random people start finding YOU and giving you llamas. They probably use the same method that I mentioned in the step above.
- And finally, some people have way too much money. If you go to ~llamatrade
and see some names constantly returning, then you know that they should probably put their money to better use, like buying subscriptions, or playing WoW. I calculate that it costs 1.25 US cents per llama to use llamatrade, which doesn't seem like much. But if take the number of llamas and divide it by 80, that's how many $US they spent getting there. So in the case of ~IAMSORRY87
, it's probably around $1200US.
