When this was introduced the forums and reddit where in FLAMES saying how terrible of an idea this was, how badly people will use it to abuse and how sh*t IMC is for doing.
I haven't really seen any post complaining about it since implementation nor have I see any stupidly priced items on the market.
Maybe it wasn't such a bad move?
This sub is pure shit right now. Anything productive/positive on IMC/the game will get downvoted to oblivion. It doesn't help people are stingy on upvoting either, so meh.
Because their original announcement stated that items would be locked automatically after enough people reported them. After the flaming they then removed that part and items are only flagged for GMs now.
It isn't stated anywhere that they removed this part. The original announcement said that after only 5 reports the sale would be locked -> IMC edited the announcement and took that out/reworded their statement after people went up in flames over it. (stealth edited if the announcement doesn't show anywhere that it was edited. Too lazy to look it up, I just know that day I read them as soon as they were out & then re-read them later that night and they had been changed.)
I have yet to hear from anyone that had has any problem with the market report feature since it got implemented.
I got downvoted for saying that they will ban nobody instantly and that we have to wait how it will work out but well, people rather cry about something that isn't even implemented yet (referring to the patch notes thread before it was ingame) instead of being patient...
And as we all can see, it seems to work. At least all RMT Dilgele are gone and they have a real value now to sell them on the market if you don't wanna trade them to pots with an alchi.
Edit: Ok seems like the RMT Dilgele were gone before the patch...
How does the New Trade Method work?
The item you want to get must be available to buy in the market.
Send us the screenshot of the item with its full name and price in the market, see the example below. You can use imgur.com to upload your screenshot:I want buy Items screenshot
We will buy this item by for you.
We will tell you a place to meet in the game and then trade that item to you.
