    So far, so good. Took a second to figure our how to fulfill orders without creating a new listing.

    It'll be interesting to see how the pricing in the market develops...most people seem to be going low right now, but I don't expect that to last long.

    I'd say that prices are all over the place right now. For example, I got two Bajoran polestars for 1,000 a piece but then I saw the price was 5,000. The market is volatile! :D

    It's interesting, that's for sure. Once prices stabilize, we then see what costs what.

    Exactly why I'm holding on to my Pandronian polestar. No way I'm selling that baby at 1000 ISM.
  • ArnieArnie ✭✭✭
    I guess someone with 100k ISM probably offers more for a polestar than someone with 5k?

    I've got enough atm, may put in a few asks for rare ones I know I'll want in the coming months though, in case they go from 2k to 20k after the initial rush.

    I'm perplexed at the useless polestars that have reportedly been sold (e.g. common etc). I wonder if that data is from WRG testing.
  • I did giggle at someone listing an uncommon polestar for 50,000 :D

    I'LL GIVE YOU 10K FOR THAT POLESTAR FINAL OFFER! I'm really getting into this. :D

    So far so good. I've been able to pick up a bunch of polestars I needed at what seemed like reasonable prices.

    I just purchased all missing polestars that I need for the next 15 retrievals, mostly at very reasonable prices. It was fun, but I guess I won't have to use the market for the rest of the year :sweat_smile:

    I’ve had a sniff around the market but not used it in earnest yet. My main feedback, though, is that since the CM launched I am finding it much more difficult to log into the game at all, and seem to be getting locked out more often during ‘Hailing Starfleet’ moments… really hope this stabilises!

    Feedback: After dematerializing polestars, please reselect the same one afterwards, and not the first polestar, so you can more easily dematerialize several of the same kind in a row (and avoid accidentally dematerializing the wrong one).

    Came here to say this. Accidentally got rid of an Ambassador polestar after trying to dematerialize my Starfleet polestars :(
  • Offloaded some useless (to me) polestars for reasonable prices & picked up 2 i could use for reasonable prices but i feel a tiny bit of Ferengi coming out. Wish i had more to sell.

    Some things are listed for crazy amounts. Someone is trying too hard to prove the 98th Rule of Acquisition :D
    I believe in coincidences. Coincidences happen every day. But I don't trust coincidences.

    The first day of trading is always the best to make money (in this case ISM). I'm selling nearly all non-needed polestars as I'm guessing prices will depreciate as it often happens for non-unique digital goodies. Definitely the best feature they've added in the game after Megas.

    Suggestion for QoL?
    Add an ability to see only polestars or constellations when searching on a particular trait.

    I do see that polestars have clearly different coloring than constellations, but it could be even more refined.

    I give it a 10/10. Was able to get some great polestars that would have taken months or years to get otherwise and have more scratch than I started with.

    I remember Ben talking about this in there demo, but it would be nice to see previous sales. It currently shows how many of an item have sold, but not the price they sold at. I can view a price for my own transactions, but not other transactions.
  • I like it so far. I was able to get a polestar that I will use for my next retrieval in a few days. Selling off some unwanted pole stars was easy. Watching the values as the days goes on will be fun.

    I bought everything and there is nothing left for sale. Sorry.

    I don't know who would buy "human" and "Federation" polestars, but it was nice making business with you!
    Nice that you can sort for "hottest items" btw - human polestar at first place.

    Haven't been on here much lately, but this is a terrific addition!

    We've asked for years to add some way to target specific crew for purchase, and this seems like the closest we'll ever get, without spending DIL, that keeps the gauntlet and honor hall crew exclusive, and that doesn't appear to be vulnerable to any breaks or exploits :)

    Already did some shopping and turned 2 human pornstars polestars into a dahar master one, picked up a few others for my next couple of retrievals, and will have to see which others i can afford to part with...who else thinks this deserves a "well done" for DBTPWRG?

    I’m very happy with the marketplace. If I have a complaint, it’s that it may be another year before I need to use it again!

    The interface is easy to use and intuitive, although I did appreciate the video walkthrough to me dive in quickly. I was able to find everything I needed, sell most of what I wanted, and it was fun watching prices fluctuate. Some personal stats:
    • Started with 132,600 ISM, ended the day with 21,500.
    • Purchased 39 polestars for a total of 183,600 ISM.
    • Sold 11 polestars for a total of 72,500 ISM.
    • Four polestars still listed.
    • My planned retrieval log is now 24 characters, and 430 days long.

    I found prices were far better if I listed what I wanted. My orders got filled pretty quick, and for fair prices. They were, admittedly, not for any Rockstar polestars.

    Biggest spread for a single polestar was Explorer. I purchased two, the first for 10k, the second for 800. I hope the latter wasn't a typo.

    My 14 month retrieval backlog is extreme, but there’s really 5 new characters I want, three of whom aren't in the portal and may not show up in the next update. The rest are extra copies, low priority collection, and a few combinations I put together beforehand for characters I like, but aren't in a rush to get. I imagine things will sort out differently.

    To re-iterate my initial statement, I really enjoyed the new system, and had fun using it. As cool new characters are released, I may look at getting relevant polestars for later stars, even if I push to get my first copy from an event.

  • The market is set up to screw over the casual player. People are selling constellations for 10-50K. There is no guarantee anything in there will be useull once unlocked. Doesn’t impact the people here who has been playing for years but the casual player is going to get taken advantage of.

    It’s like no one at WRG has ever taken an economics class or perhaps this is intentional. Constellations shouldn’t be in the market at all or they should have a cap on the price.
  • robownagerobownage ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'll admit I didn't even look at constellation sales. I can see why someone may gamble on constellations, in the hopes for a valuable polestar but if you don't have a lot of ISM (casual or not) it's going to be clear this is a high risk venture. If someone has limited ISM, why wouldn't they just stick to polestar sales?

    For me it's a risk/reward thing. I bought two Rarity constellations (one at 5k, one at 6k). One gave me a Common polestar, and the other gave me a Legendary. One of those holds no value for me, but the other I can either use for myself or turn around and sell it for significantly more than what I paid for it. Some Constellations have next to no value (Admiral Janeway, I'm looking at you), but others have a decent chance of paying off.
