Its been awhile since I’ve had a REALLY good idea I thought was worth posting here. This one is just too good. The Idea comes from other mmorpg’s i’ve played in the past.
What if you had the ability to list items as a set on the Bazaar? I believe it would create many more Market-Making opportunities for buyers and sellers alike.
The idea here would be for someone who has all the items to complete a set would be able to put all the items into one Bazaar posting; which would display the whole set instead of a single item. In addition, I think the unofficial sets being included in this would add another Market dynamic. Becoming a “set builder” may even be another role one could take in the Gotchiverse.
Lets weigh some of the pro’s and con’s
Would allow for someone to quickly find and buy all the items required to complete a set for the BRS bonus
Gives sellers the opportunity to sell their items at once instead of piece by piece
Gives new buyers a chance to view completed sets on the Bazaar with their associated BRS bonus
Gives Buyers a chance to compare set prices to their individual counterparts
Provides Market making opportunities for those saavy enough to arbitrage prices between individual items and their completed sets.
Gives guilds a chance to sell Non-Brs guild created wearables with official Aavegotchi wearables as a completed guild set later down the line when that is implemented.
May impact some items by making them more/less expensive than they are now
May cause items with low very liquidity (Mythical/Godlike) to only become available as sets depending on the current distribution
May cause an overall re-pricing in general
4.Additional Developer time committed to creating the UI for this
After weighing these I thought it was worthwhile to have a good conversation about this. Have spoken to a few Gotchi community members and have received overall positive feedback on Bazaar set listings. What do all you Frens think?
