Revisited: Trading

I've been working during the past week on an updated trading system (Which has taken longer than expected). For those are into the game economics, I can confirm that, to date, the 1% market fee alone has taken $625million+ out of the game. That just shows how much people love trading.

Trading & Services Ad Board
The majority of people who want to advertise selling something, post on the trading forum. To help gain more exposure I've created a ad board which is located at the Dead City. You simply pay a small fee to post whatever it is you're offering, whether you're selling an item, selling merc services, selling plasma etc you can post on the ad board. This will be the main hub for people wanting to trade and look for a good deal, as opposed to just watching the market and forum. Click here to check it out.

Auction House
People also use the forum to host auctions. These have to be moderated to make sure everything works out as it should. I've decided to agree and take away that work from our mods and ACT and create an automated 'eBay' style auction house. If you have something to sell, any items, plasma, or covens. You can pay a fee and host an auction! When the auction is live, other vampires can bid, and the top bidder when the bidding time ends, wins! Not all items are available for auction, for example, rubies. There are a select few items which will be "market only" if you intend on selling them. Click here to check it out.

Auction house works out cheaper selling your items, because the 1% fee is taken off your STARTING PRICE. Cool, huh?

What's for you?
You have something to sell but not sure which feature to use?

Market - If you want a set price for an item, use the market. Although if people don't want to pay that price, your item might not sell.

Auction House - Have a great item to sell? Use the auction house & let supply and demand profit you. This is the most secure way to auction off an item on Reign Of Blood.

Billboard - If you want to deal in private or have services to sell instead of game items, using the billboard is a good way to advertise this.

For my own curiosity sake, I have placed 5 plasma on an auction starting at $10,000. (That's works out at $2k each). I'm curious to see how high bidders bid for the plasma.

Please post bugs and feedback on this thread, thank you!

Wheel Of Death
You know how generous I am by giving you free turns every day you login? Well I've decided to make that a little more interactive. Just a small bit of fun, when you login, you get a chance to spin the 'Wheel Of Death' for a free daily turn bonus. Win or lose, you'll get free turns!

As promised, more quests have headed your way this past week!

What's next?
My next focus will be on the RP side of the game. If you have any ideas or changes you'd like to see, make sure you've posted your thoughts here.

Enjoy the week :)
