Oh well. As long as I can actually buy this piece of Pink Floyd I’m missing sometime soon, I’m happy.

“Will win”? No, it’s already won. It had a slight lead in the first poll, and here it’s got almost a 50% lead over it’s rival.

It’s over, we just need them to close the pooll and put the auction house out

Then you’re due for unhappiness. The auction house as planned will allow selling of completed files, not pieces of files.

The neatnik in me really chafes at having all of these unnecessary parts of files lying around in inventory. After extracting darkside, I was immediately back to 49/50 with 300 or so pieces other than #28 lying around. Will there ever be a way I can just get rid of those? I was hoping that I could sell the excess pieces that I have for files I’ve already extracted and hence do not want, but apparently not.

We’re getting pretty close to launching our first major feature since Episode 2 was introduced back in October. It’s called Kyoubai, and it’s an auction house that allows player to auction their items to each other for Flezz.

The name Kyoubai was chosen by the horrible denizens of Flamebate in a series of polls. It is one of several Japanese translations for auction, but it also sounds a lot like Ok, you buy!.

The mascot of Kyoubai will be BidSquid (a cartoon squid with a cowboy hat and a gavel). He’ll be the one who corresponds with you when you are outbid or when you win an auction. He’s going to be designed by the talented artists at Dooomcat. They’re the ones who designed the awesome homepage for Forumwarz, as well as the player clbum portraits you get when choosing your clbum.

How the auction house will work:

* You can select virtually any unequipped item from your inventory and put it up for auction.

* You set the starting price, as well as a length of time to run your auction (12, 24 or 72 hours).

* Optionally, you can set a buyout price or a reserve price.

* The auction house will charge you a listing fee based on the parameters of your auction. Generally speaking: the longer the auction, the higher the fee.

* Other players can then bid on items. There is a minimum bid amount based on the current bid on an item. However, you can choose a maximum bid that is much higher than the minimum. In this case, your maximum price remains hidden, but you will automatically outbid any bids that are less than your maximum.

* At the end of the auction, the highest bidder wins the item. If the item does not sell, it is returned via tubmail.

New Items to Trade

* We plan to introduce new and rare items via the auction house. So keep an eye on it from time to time to see if there’s something you’ve never seen before. You’ll never know what you might find.

* We are going to introducing more rare .MOAR files soon. For those with lots of excess flezz but no patience to grind for Pink Floyd type of files, the auction house will be a great tool!

* We are planning to introduce ItemBuildr in the future, as a way to get a constant feed of new and awesome items into the economy.

When’s it coming out? What’s next on the Forumwarz agenda?

Most of the coding is done. We are mainly waiting on the artwork. If things go well, it will launch by the end of the week. If not, next week for sure!

Afterwards, we’re going to focus on enhancing Forumwarz Domination. There are plenty of discussions going on in the Domination Forum, and we plan to go a long way to address the major issues as well as to make Domination much more fun and open to all players.

I’d rather not see this thread turn into a comment thread on the blog post. There should be a new thread for that.

This implies that only complete files will be able to be auctioned, can someone confirm that?

That is indeed the case.

I will be closing the poll now; comments and concerns can go on our blog post, or a new (or previously existing) thread.

Thanks for your votes. KYOUBAI = WINRU!
