This is not the case in the slightest. The issue is that the Strands were launched as tradable which was a mistake on our part. This meant that effectively what was a closed loop economy of crafting marks now had a tangible platinum value. So, all we have done with this change is return that to a closed loop and removed that platinum value. Yes, I know that a lot of you are going to be upset by this and for that I'm truly, truly sorry. However, it's the right thing to do for the crafting marks economy.
