Back in the day, players did store a lot simply for bragging reasons, and/or for savings. As far as I understand it, the original cap was put into play to force players to sell far more frequently to give the server a better idea of a players worth in gralats. Without being able to save many loots or bugs, you can't hide your work in savings, aside from your farms. I would imagine that they can figure your farm numbers, since they haven't put a cap on that yet. With the current loot cap being at 200, players can only store less than 4k gralats worth in loots in general, before having to sell. That's not much at all in my personal opinion.
