Name change from cash market

Post by Vesper on Sat Dec 12, 2009 3:49 am

Do you think that you can make it so people can buy a name change from the cash market just like personal bonuses?

I think it would be better to add 1 single option where you buy:
3 name changes AND 3 personal bonus changes AND 3 race changes at once.

(instead of adding separate buying options for each of the 3)

would anyone use it considering a name change on the market is worth 1.25 times of the weekly production of market trades?

I mean it's no problem, if I see there's any remote chance of it being actually used

plus it comes with the bigger packages.

But I do see it being used a bit.

@ Kenzu, if you charge for 9 resources (3 name changes, 3 race changes, 3 PB changes) the cost is going to be really high and if a person just wants 1 of the 9 resources it may not be worth it.

Also race changes are "free" now, as in you can do it as many times as you want. The cost is in ingame Kewal. Why put a $$ cost on it now?

my question being, why would someone pay real money for something they can get for free.
If their intention is to support the game then they can get much more by spending it in other ways

if its too low then the paypal fee will consume a big share of the money.

your saying 20 market trades to change your name? i was thinking you would put it up for same price as personal bonus change and use same settings as that.

No changing name more then once ever 2 months, and same costs.

actually i put it into the market to be able to be bought without money because you dont change names that often, and there's (hardly) nothing to gain in terms of tactical advantage when doing it.

Mainly for just accounts changing hands.

Tacticly a name change means nothing since everyone logs ID#'s not names.
