    Hey guys, I decided to tell the full story about one of the biggest and most popular trades on Sythe. That's one of the sales that is still remembered until this day and it has totally changed my life.

    I've started playing RuneScape back in 2005, a couple years after that I was quite known in some RuneScape communities and also with a help from my friend opened my own RuneScape fan site. After being the first Lithuanian player to receive an Elysian sigil from a Corporeal Beast, I quit the game.

    Even though I quit, I was interested in following the updates, market prices etc. I sold the Elysian and bought a purple partyhat for only 97M (sold it later for 1 Billion) and also had a chance to get 9 Half Full Wine Jugs pretty cheap (because the guy who was selling them did not know how rare they were). At that time there was no free trade, so he could only get a market price, unless he wanted to add some junk items too. I was one of a few RuneScape players to have this many wines after ~2010-2011, probably was the only one at some point. At one point was the richest Lithuanian RuneScape player in a game.

    [​IMG]

    At that time I decided to sell them on Sythe. I sold the first one to the member Tactuz, the price was 400-800USD or so. That was a lot of money for me back then, I was still going to school. After analyzing the market and how rare those wines were, I decided that I better wait till their real money price goes up, I saw a potential. *In the picture you only see 8 wines, the picture was taken after I sold one to Tactuz.


    I decided to start with a price of ~1050$, sometimes adjusting it a little based on the changes in the market.
    While selling them, I had quite a few funny moments. Some member called me a Jew (interesting fact that back in 19th century, at one point my town's population was 77% Jewish). Also, there was a very big topic on RuneScape forums where people mentioned Plznate and other Sythe members as being blackmarket leaders. I was also mentioned in it. My username was not mentioned, but I was called as a guy who sells wines for a grand each.


    When the free trade was back, I sold two wines for gold at the time when GP was quite expensive. That was about ~1k USD each as far as I remember. And I also needed money pretty badly, at that time I finished High School and had a chance to go abroad to the United Kingdom and study/live there.

    [​IMG]


    I had 6 wines left and after nearly 2 years of selling and when Free Trade was back and the gold price went up, I sold them for ~1200-1300$ each. Sold 6 wines and a Red partyhat to a guy who had quite a lot of cash (Bedwetter). He grew up with his foster parents and when they died they left him some money (don't know the full story). He went first and sent me at least 10,000$ in an envelope (we did not even use a Middleman). Before this I've never had that much money in my hands, so it was pretty special. Even though I could of just taken his money and kept the wines, I haven't done that, because I am not that type of a person. We also became quite good friends, still chat from time to time. * Only after two years Bedwetter told me that he was very sure about me before the trade even happened because of the Christian quote which I had my signature (I'm a follower of God and I'm proud). This was one of the biggest public trades on Sythe and definitely one of the most popular ones.

    I am happy to see, that even though the thread was closed 5+ years ago, it is still one of the most popular ones with over 50,000 views:
    Runescape 3 Item Exchange


    I would like to thank Sythe.org for making this possible. At the moment, I can say that I am pretty successful and going to the right direction. I moved abroad, I've met so many amazing people from all around the world, and it is still like a dream to me.

    Thank you,
    Ernest

    Was an interesting read, thanks for the share! I kick myself knowing that I had plenty of half jugs of wine in my bank when I was a noob. I cringe thinking that I'd drink them to restore that couple hitpoints while I was theiving D:

    You sold tactuz 1 wine, and sold 2 when free trade came out. 8 - 3 = 5 wines left. Where did you get the 6th?

    A really great opportunity came along and your patience helped you get the most out of it.

    Bedwetter ended up scamming a small amount if I recall correctly, odd, I wonder what happened. Probably got scammed for the wines on rs (not you) or cleaned and got desperate.

    It was 9 in total, the picture was taken after I sold Tactuz one.

    Betwetter gambled with these wines (diced a couple years ago, there is a video on Youtube somewhere), it was the biggest pot ever. He also had some crackers too. I spoke with him, he was framed or something, but he never scammed and he never would. He should be unbanned.

    Ernest,

    This is a really admirable story here. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

    Thanks for taking the time to share it. Hope you the best in life.
    Sorry to hear about Bedwetter being banned. It sure does take some guts to send 10 grand in an envelope to someones front door.

    Thanks for being an honest man Ernest, it shows a lot about the better side of some people here on Sythe.
