It’s been several weeks now we are testing a new tool which will allow you to create auctions. You’ll by able to sell one single card or a bunch of them in your auctions.
We think this tool is ready now and you should be able to use it easily. But to be sure of it, we will release its Beta version. It means you’ll be able to test this tool and create your own auctions.
To get to this new tool, go on the «Collection» tab then «Auctions». If we notice a problem during this testing phase, we will reserve the right to deactivate this tool to avoid major issues.
Let us know in this thread if you meet problems.
This tool is available for player over level 15.
If you notice a problem, please, give as much details as you can with screenshots if it’s possible. No off-board messages please.
Oh jolly...I just looked at auctions again you seem to have added this stupid American idea of a "reserve price". Well... at my first look, auction was pretty much useless already - 99.99% is simply unattractive. And also with a "reserve price"? Come on, that is not even a proper auction any more. Either things are sold to the highest bidder over the initial price or not. Yes, I detest this feature and will simply ignore any auction (house) using this "feature". Also, no, "my" national ebay does not support this, so it is not standard. It is nonsensical. ...
Well, auctions always seem(d) like a good idea. And in theory they are. But on a market where every good is instantly available from no matter what source, the usefulness already diminishes... and here we see the end-result of nearly total uselessness: people want to buy cheap (yeah, otherwise they could buy from the marker immediately...) but more than that sellers want to get more money than they get right now from the market... I looked at auctions a couple of times and always found it a waste of time. Unfortunately, there is no technical solution to this... maybe auctions don't really work here.
Maybe Dutch Auction (price goes down in set intervals, card is sold as soon as somebody bids; starting price an minimum is set) might work. The upcoming trading feature (cards v. cards) holds much more promise, imo.
