🌌[Image Inside] - Quark's Bar Auction suggestion

Myself & others think it be cool if there was an auction type section set up in fleet so members can post or bid on unwanted duplicate crew or spare items for credits or whatever currency the seller requests. Or a trade off section with same parameters.
Maybe make it Universal instead of just limited within individual fleets.
Could even do it in the style of Quark's bar with Quark running it, could go hand in hand with the Dabo Wheel.

    I think the problem with this suggestion is something that has been previously noted in a number of other threads: inter-player trading (which is what this could amount to) is a ripe mechanism for abuse.

    In order for the bidding process to prevent a simple trade between 2 accounts, the 'Bar Auction' would definitely need to be open to ALL players - limiting it to just a fleet would allow someone to create a fleet for just their own multiple accounts, and load up on one of them.

    I think another requirement would have to be that the 'Time remaining' element needs to be substantial (e.g., at least 1 week), in order to allow for the community to raise up the winning bid for an item close to its true value - that is, if the timer were relatively short, then again it would be easy to abuse the system.

    In addition to abuse, there's also potential legal concerns - especially with dilithium.
  • Both arguments are valid. This could be abused, but if it was made right, things like that could be avoided.

  • It would also drastically change the value of duplicate crew. For example instead of a 4* being worth 200 honor they may be worth up to 18,000 which is the cost of a citation. I don’t think DB would want us to have this feature because we would not need packs as badly to FF crew members. Although the pack too would become more valuable.

  • I think its better to allow trade with DB,even at unfavourable terms,but,your advise would come 2nd to that.
  • It's a cool picture and I'm sure we'd all love to have an auction house.

    That said, DB has been saying "no" for one year and a half.

    Well thank you Astrometrics, I'm pleased you appreciate the mock up pic.
    I'm sure with pursistance and enough player support they may yet consider the idea.

  • Interfleet trading is a good idea. But maybe the only way it can't be abused is through fixed pricing. 18,000 honor for a super-rare card, for example. It allows greater access to stuff through fleet members but not undercut DB.
