Hello @Chris and Community , RMT can be a good thing. Yes it can! It can make money for players and, with my proposal it will make a ton of much-needed money for Portalarium. I am talking ALL Store and Crown Shop items, past and present, not just the new Heritage items. This really should have been something from the start to keep everyone on an even playing field while still being able to make real money. How? Make it a part of the Crown Shop as a Cash Auction House in-game or on the official site and charge fees and/or percentage commissions paid to Portalarium. It's time they make something off the sale of their own Intellectual Property. It's also time to make RMT officially supported to protect both sellers and buyers. By doing this we ALL become "Trusted Traders." Why? Convenience: people currently have to go off-site and out of the game to make complicated arrangements to buy things. No need to scour the forums or other trade sites and hope your item arrives. The auction house makes immediate and guaranteed deliveries. Price: Auction houses mean competition. Much like where we check for prices on ShroudoftheAvatar.net an RMT Auction Houses will provide the means for true, real-time supply and demand pricing of items. No more guessing, no more paying too much or too little. Yes, there will be undercutting, but that just means your item isn't worth what it once was. And sometimes, your items will be worth WAY MORE than you thought it was as well. Safety: RMT is completely unprotected right now. If someone rips you off, you're on your own. Never worry again about scammy sellers or deadbeat buyers. We're all Trusted Traders and are enforced by the Auction House. Profit: Some traders may not like this proposal but all my experience in Marketing tells me you're losing business on impulse buys because it's just too inconvenient to buy from you. Plus some of your websites look downright shady, apologies. Wouldn't you rather pay a small fee to get that instant sale instead of no sale at all? Community: Make a name for yourself as a top seller to the entire Shroud community. An in-game Auction House legitimizes your business and puts your name in a centralized database everyone will see. The more you sell, the more people will know you. I'm sure there are many other reasons I cannot think of off the top of my head but they exist. Conversely, perhaps there are a few valid arguments against this, but I have a feeling those arguments will always be about putting the individual over the community. Let's put the community, and our growing numbers first! Thanks for stopping by!
