Hi,
some time ago i started topic about market in Survarium, but can't find it , so i start again.

Some online PVP games use in-game market system, so players can sell and buy equipment from each other. What do you think about Market place in this game? I know some players, who have a few Barrets, Sr3M and a lot of other equipment they are ready to sell for something better than silver. As we talked about it in chat - some players support that idea, that it would be cool to sell some of this equipment to other players. In old days, when after almost every game we get some new weapon or armor, market idea was not necessary. But now i think it can help a lot, specially for some new players.
Examples:

1. Player have 2 the same rare weapons - upgraded. He can sell one weapon to someone for a few stash maps or something better (500 gold maybe). Because if i decide to sell SR3M now, i will get only 36K silver ;/.

2. Player from Tier 10, only 1 faction finished. In market he/she wants to buy some T10 weapon or armor from another faction. Why not? I would sell fully upgraded T10 weapon for a few stash maps or some spare parts. So buyer will save a lot of spare parts and everything - because there is no need to upgrade.

3. I want to buy VSS, but i don't want to pay gold (i spend enough real money already in Survarium ;]). So - maybe someone have 2 VSS and is ready to sell one? I can pay a lot in game currency for this one.

I would gladly give any of my equipment to other players. No need to sell it.

Bad idea; i'd break progression.

This is a good idea for a loot based system with extreme use of unset variables in weapons, but not for what we have.

I'd might work as an exclusively PvE thing where survivors can barter for loot, but that'd be all

@aZERO77:
after implementing "trade market" they can close the ingame shop, then they cant pay rent for servers and pizza/vodka.
result would be that u cant play anymore.

good idea lol

Same, I want to share some of my spare parts since I still have so many left from back when we had stashes after each match. However, if this feature were implemented, it could be abused. It would give folks a reason to make illegal IRL exchanges, like paying Johnny $10 for his s00per kool peestol.

Ingame market could be for gold too and premium weapons could be excluded, also the amount of tranactions per account could be limited for each tier too.

You guys going too far. Firstly, even if they wanted to do something like this (i doubt), it would take a lot of time and as we know VG is not a big studio. They don't have time to fix current problems. They are busy making freeplay for us (kappa). Secondly, this would probably break their intentions of marketing so it's hardly ever happen.

Personally i like the idea, i know few games where trading system works pretty well, but these games are way more popular.

What progression would it break down?? You could bind every transaction to 100-1000 gold for VG, based on tier. And for each tier only 1 transaction would be possible. One would be able to trade only up to his own tier level.

This way someone desparate for certain weapon, not wanting to grind it(or wait for it to be on roulette) would be able to get this 1 weapon for gold = a lot of money for VG. Some people just dont want to buy gold weapons cause its not the weapon of their choice, rather they would trade in market with gold involved.

For example if someone likes machineguns and grind RA for PKP and then wants Minimi, he can trade one of his PKPs for Minimi with required transaction fee for example 1000 gold, both participants can decide on who is gonna pay what ammount of the gold to complete the transaction, but the sum must be 1000 gold. For each tier you could only do ONE such transaction per account.

= a lot of money for VG when the pricing is right.

With 1000 gold it will essentially just be buying premium items with no premium bonus but perfected stats.

it was just an example, could be something like 500 gold, maybe 700. But wouldnt you be happy to have this opportunity? Or wouldt have you been happy to be able to do this while grinding? I still wanna dusk as fck and I am willing to pay for it.

I just wanted to give away everything but I couldn't.. even explained I didn't want anything in return (so no trading involved).
But it isn't doable... So I stopped from trying to give away my account. A store would help me though so I could give away all my gear

I could sell some weapons upgraded to max (maxed kills), +all 3/3, like +5 DMG, +5 AP, +10 ROF or +15 distance. I invested so much time to perfect some weapons, but when i get 2 similar weapons (like M4 NY edition and regular M4) - then i don't need two weapons with same stats. So i will be happy to sell it even for 500 gold for example.

VG never will give us a trading system, they need to make cash.

Well - but as we suggest - people can buy gold for cash and then buy upgraded weapons or gold weapons with silver bonus - anyway they pay gold.

Btw - just look how much cost some "gold"weapons in shop:
PP 19 01 - 700 gold - tier 4;
AKM 65 - 700 gold - tier 4;

so if we could sell some upgraded to max weapon with good attachments for some 500-1000 gold, VG will not loose money. Probably even more new players will buy gold just to get these used - but great weapons or other equipment.

it's not that they will never add a trading system, it's just not doable in PVP, maybe in PVE yes.
