Auction

 

As part of Update 0.10.4, we’re adding a new method by which you can obtain in-game items. We call it the "Auction"—a place where you can find rare goodies. The Auction will feature rare collectibles, and offers another way of replenishing supplies of resources and other in-game valuables.

 

Key Rules

  • Each Auction has a limited duration.
  • It comprises the following stages:

           1. A lot that is offered in an Auction is announced with details of its starting price and the number of possible bid winners.

           2. The Auction begins, and bids can be placed.

           3.The results of the Auction are summed up; bids are no longer accepted.

           4.The Auction winners receive their rewards, while the other Auction participants receive their bids back.

  • You can change your bid amount at any time, as long as bidding for that lot is still available.
  • Players will only be notified of the starting bid for a lot and the number of possible winners.
  • Depending on the lot, you can use various in-game resources for your bid.
  • The number of lots is limited; the highest bids win; the winning bids will be used as payments for the lots.
  • It's a no-risk adventure! Any bid that doesn't win will be returned to the bidder when the Auction closes.

 

For example, if there is a lot for 500 commemorative flags, the 500 players with the highest bids will receive one flag each.

Just so you know, I have no desire to participate in a feature creating artificial scarcity to play out players against one another in order to drain them from resources, hoping it’ll stimulate sales somehow.

 

This is the kind of overdevelopment that occurs when you’re both out of ideas to benefit players and just look for something that is different AND you’ve reached if not crossed an ethical line.

 

 

 

You say there is no risk involved. I don’t think you understand risk.

I've tested the auction system but I don't receive what I bid for:

I won the 10000 coal auction and received only 1000.

Lol, so if everyone spent like 1000000 credit or more to get just 1 flag, isn't it kind of a scam or money printing way so that people would play more or buy credits for real money ? :Smile_sceptic:

Totally ridiculous thing. Who will ever pay 25M for 10000 coal? You must be out of your mind

Good mornin´ everybody....

 

so we are playing on a test server it doesn´t matter how much you spend for one auction ...... unless it stays on the test server and will NOT be a part on the live server.

 

It would be more interesting if there was a market for ships .... cause for new players or collectors it could be a chance to get ships like "Black" for example ..

You see them in Battle and nowadays you didn´t have a chance to get them ..

That would be a thing to think about ...

 

*sorry for my bad english*

Hi Ridicully66,

It doesn't matter, don't worry. One thing, though, I am not sure I understood your feedback. Would you like to see the Auction implemented to the live server? In the future, other kinds of resources will be also available to be obtained through the Auction. 😊

Hi JaC,

 

it would be a good idea to implement a type of auction or market, but not with resources like coal or whatever

 

Resources you gain through battles in multiple ways and that´s enough, I think.

Wouldn´t it be better having the chance to get ships that aren´t sold anymore in the premium shop, or no longer gainable through resources, battles and so on?

Or how does a player get the Enterprise, Black, Siegfried and son on?

 

Hope you understand what I´m meaning ...

Writing in german would be more easier ...

Hi Ridicully66,

Thank you again for sharing your feedback. Yes, I get your point. The resources for the Auction on PT were chosen for testing purposes. When the Auction will land on the main server, the items obtainable could be different. 😊

Hi JaC,

 

thanks for your reply!

 

In my opinion it would be great if there are ships available...

 

Or another possibility would be, to install a normal market for ships and resources, like on ebay...

There you can get a fee for every transaction, for example for every ship from Tier I to IX, maybe 50cent, and above Tier X and promo Ships 1€..

 

We´ll see what happens!

Have a great week, cu

The idea is nice but again the problem is how each company use every ideas to the people and WG has alot of history pushing alot of stuff in our gaming experience cause they benefit alot with plenty $$ in their accounts.

 

In the end the UI on my part worked fine with no bugs except milking my account on PTS :cap_haloween:

Nauseica you are right, it´s the company who decides in which way they want to make money....

 

On PTS they can milk as long as they want ... and bugs, never found one, but I´m only playing since 2018 and maybe I´ll find one

 

*wow* it´s not easy getting the sence in reading and answer in the right way....I´ve lost toooo much english words

Exactly, let's see what happens when the update lands on the main server. Thanks for all your ideas! 😊

Dear mate,

 

A) there is a German section on the forum where you could post in your native language in case you feel to have problems with writing and reading in English

B) you wish for expanding the items (i.e. ships) rather than only signals, flags and resources will lead to extra ordinary prices for those ships. As example you can watch the below mentioned link to give you an idea where that leads to.

C) The Black will return for coal in the upcoming months as WeeGee has stated in the past, so that ship can be obtained by you in a normal way.

 

So, no auction for ships or legendary upgrades to my opinion in WoWs......

Good morning Rubytow,

 

yes, you´re right, there´s a german section, but I think here are more members

and I like it here.

 

B) Again you are right, that´s what happens. Didn´t think of it an I didn´t know that there is a black market for these items.

So there is no need for any type of auction, for me it´s not necessary to gain resources in auctions...

 

C) Didn´t notice thes statement that the Black will return ... so I have to collect more coal

 

Thanks for your reply!

Have a nice week!
