Announcing the MMO Marketplace

ggFTW News

Hi everyone,

We're pleased to announce a new, upcoming feature to ggFTW -- the MMO Marketplace. The marketplace will be an online auction house of sorts where players can buy, sell, trade, and auction in-game items. The MMO marketplace will also include a feedback system by which the community can measure a particular buyer or seller's trustworthiness.

The market index page will show auctions ending soon and current items for sale/purchase. Members will be able to filter their results by game to reduce clutter. We expect this feature to be ready in 1-2 weeks.

We hope this will make the markets easier to navigate. Right now they're buried at least 3 (sometimes 4) forums deep and a forum was never meant as a market. We're not releasing any additional information on features at this time, but the staff members who have seen the prototypes really dig it :)

We will link from the forum markets once it's complete to reduce confusion. This system will also replace the iTrader system. Current iTrader total feedback scores will carry over, but specific information on past trades will disappear as the two systems are incompatible.

The marketplace will include every game we have in our database. We recognize that not all games have a player market and some games already have built in systems for this. Because we cannot reasonably investigate all games to see if they have a system or allow player trades, we are leaving it open to all games.

The marketplace will allow cash shop item trading for in-game currency only. Because some games allow this and some games do not, responsibility will be on the member to determine if a specific transaction violates a game's terms of service. Under no circumstances will items be traded for real-world cash or profit.

Stepping up the game,

-- ggFTW Staff

We don't have specific guild markets planned at this time. I would, but very few people use the guild functions. If you'd like to see it added in the future, get people to start using the guild system lol :)

Sweet! :) Is there a function where we can make "guild shops" specially for guilds? If there is, then I have a good reason to remove my "Black Witch Marketplace"....
