Player Auction

We have server auctions. What about a player auction?

Auction timer will be an hour or depending on the time you purchase or just have a set time to make things easier. You add your item and it will auction, when the auction timer is up whoever purchased it gets added to their account. So you add your item just like in the mall and that's how it'll transfer to the other persons account when their bid is accepted at the end of the auction.

Have a queue, auction will be never-ending pretty much, players keep paying the auction fee and add their items to the queue to be auctioned off.

Have the auction take place at unstick infront of everyone on an on-going basis.

The idea behind this is to give players another option of selling their items, the player auction gives players to sell their items instead of buying items from the server auction. Player auctions gives players the chance to pick up bargains on items and players with items struggling to sell their items a chance at selling their items for more than the pawn price.

I'd love to see this implemented. I believe it would be a big hit and very much used.

What exactly do you mean?

You can put your item in the auction and all auctions will start at 0.. Not everybody will risk putting their items up for auction so not everybody will do it. Being online or offline wouldn't matter, once your item is in the auction the auction will handle the rest.

I thought about doing this in the past, but theres was a chance it would upset players when an item was sold below market value.

That's life. That happens in real life auctions that's the risk you take. I mean, nobody is forcing them to use it, it's just an option. I see what you mean by upsetting them but logically they know before they do it that it's a risk they are taking. Either way they will still get something for their items, a lot of items do not sell at all but i guarantee every item will sell in auction.

Might as well.
For people that ***** about not getting the money they want, just put a reserve price option like ebay does.

Player Auctions? Like slavery? Jeeze Louise, but finally Era has taken a darker turn into society.

There used to be player auctions and (Auctioneers) back in the day, I kept trying to get staff to bring it back but it's always shot down.

I hope we don't end up auctioning players in the future, reminds me of the old PPA system.
