    Greetings Avatars,

    We know that home ownership requires a large commitment of either real dollars or in-game gold. This can be quite daunting to new players. However, our game offers other options that many players may not even be aware of, including renting from other players or even free housing offered by generous owners. We want players to be aware of all the alternative housing options besides ownership. We have already added a link to the “Rental Services & Free Places to Live” subforum to all housing and property deed items in the store.

    Starting with Release 51, all players will start with a flier in their backpack that also links to this subforum. In Release 52 we will also add Bulletin Boards with links to this subforum in all the starting cities. Please be sure to list your rental availability and free places in that subforum so players can easily find them. We have noticed a good number of the free locations are not listed in the Rental Services subforum and are instead listed in “New Player Welcome” and therefore will not be discovered via this new method.

    If you have any questions about placing your own rental ad there, or how the forum marketplace works, you can post your questions in the general marketplace forum section, or contact a community team lead like @Berek or @Cerus to help you out.

    All of these are lovely suggestions and definitely near to things we want to eventually get to after launch. In the meantime the flier is a simple mechanic to make people more aware of what is already in place that most are unaware of (like I stated in the OP).

    We are going to actually lock this thread and move all of these suggestions to another thread.
