Changes to Market Hall and affable brokers.

Post by Elysia » Sat Nov 30, 2019 4:18 pm

Over the past few months, we've been seeing repeated shenanigans with bother the equipment/ trinket/ weapons brokers, as well as the fireworks/ potions brokers.

These shenanigans include passing the same few items back and forth to 'pay for' a rare that is traded, and somehow 'mysteriously' it always being the same individuals who buy from certain sellers. These individuals and these sellers have a relationship in the game, either in another clan, spending a lot of time together, or otherwise. This reeks of friends sponsoring friends to earn qps/ master. Obviously, neither of these are intended, just like a friend dying to you a few times on their crossrace alt is not intended, nor acceptable. The Market Hall was intended as an open market, where people can do business regardless of timezone.

Because of this, there will now be a variable delay between an item being offered for sale at the aide/ affable broker and the time it will be put up for sale.

Every single transaction at the Market Hall or potion/fireworks brokers is recorded and saved. Sooner or later, anyone trying to gain an illegal advantage will be caught and dealt with. We will continue to monitor the situation and if there is continued abuse and/or gaming the system, we are considering also punishing the buyers who are part of the problem, e.g. the sponsor types. Please use your heads and don't let it come that far.
