Insane suggestion about a new amazing event

Post by Tanya » August 18th, 2019, 6:24 pm

Hello! I was reading another topic about trading items and came up with a crazy idea.

Maybe make for a test one month "TAX-FREE-MONTH-EVENT", disable all vendors fees for a month.
Also make free perma gates for everyone for this month.

As a result it will help a lot for our economy, many people don't want to put expensive items on vendors because of fees.

You never can find any good crafted items or high end replicas on vendors, only in forum, and sometimes difficult to meet a person ingame to finish the trade.

It will help new players to sell stuff and get gold faster.

So I think it could be nice event :coffee:

The problem with the economy now is there's too much gold in the sink. Vendor prices(taxes\fees) are a type of drain that reduces the gold in the server. Heck one time , a vendor consumed 2 billion gold.

That story with 2 billion gold it was funny lol
But I believe there is also another big problem: you almost never can find good quality items on vendors, only on perma gates sometimes but almost never on random vendors.

3-4 mod weapons, 4-5 mod armor, arties etc. nothing on vendors.

I think maybe find out another gold sink, but let people freely trade without taxes...

Maybe invent some kind of vendor selling runics or something like that...

I think vendor fees should scale, so the % fee goes down the higher the price, so people will put high end items on vendors.

A sale fee would be a sufficient gold sink, just work with that number and prices will adjust while opening the market to items with a lower sale rate. Listing fee only works with a sizeable population and a centralized sale method (like an Auction House or OSI vendor search)

I agree with ducky. The economy is flooded with gold. I think its a nice gold sink, but it also promotes people just trading through discord, which also cuts down on people traveling to vendors in the world and makes players have to pay them since no one is actually running around. It sucks for people who dont have tons of money or dont farm/craft alot because you just dont have the gold to keep it up or the items to keep it in inventory. Practically why I shut down my shop, no one was restocking and it was just burning a hole in my pocket.

Wouldnt mind more gold sink events though, I feel like the economy is only getting worse because of all the scripting, it just makes the gap bigger for those that dont do it or the new players. Theres gotta be a way to fix it somehow.

All these people worried about the new player
If you were really worried about the new player you would make a thread asking the staff to let the new player have the 720 points right away instead of giving them 5 points every 90 days or whatever it is.

Or a thread asking staff to change the 1st year ethy vet reward an item they can get right away because there isn’t a donation store.

No we are going to ask the staff to lower or get rid of vendor fees because that new player that starts out with 1 freaking thousand gold will now be able to afford your now no vendor fees items right? ( I really want a sarcasm font)

So until the staff caves in and gives you what you want you can always do what we did in the “ olden days”

1) 499 equals no vendor fee

2) If these vendor fees are stressing you out so much remember the fee is taken at the end of the 24 hours
(Think about it)

...... keep worrying about the new player.

This is what's coming to OSI this year:

"What caught my eye in the patch notes, however, is the brand-new commission vendor. Traditionally, player-run vendors charge hourly based on the prices set for the vendor, which makes them a poor deal for very expensive and rare items (and for mundane items on smaller shards with less vendor turnover). The new commission vendor will skip hourly fees and instead merely take a 5.25% commission fee when items are purchased. I can’t even tell you how awesome this is."

No, this is not permanent thing, just an event once in a year for a month long. Can bring fresh air in game ;)

I think what everyone is saying is the event is ok, but your reasoning is off.

You mean uo is doing what WoW has been doing for years??

Ps wow has a listing fee well. And only can be on the market for a limited time.


Sorry but this is a dumb idea. Demise needs more gold sinks.
