[Discussion] A [DVI] Announcement!

Discussion in 'UO Rares Collector' started by DVI, Apr 21, 2010.

    DVI Guest

    The future of Rares Trading is coming....

    With the many changes to the rares community over the past year, especially the vast influx of new Event items and the changes in the UO economy, its become necessary to find a more efficient and cheaper way to make these items available to collectors.

    In the next 1-2 months we will be opening trading hubs on several specific shards representing the East Coast, Central Region & West Coast. The houses will feature several amenities:

    Free short term & long term vendor rental.
    Weekly Scheduled transfers to other trading hubs for a minimal price
    Trusted brokering services
    Plus much more!

    Through the use of our hub you will be able to quickly find the items you are looking for in one of several locations! Plus with our scheduled transfer service you'll be able to have goods transfered to you, or for you to any other hub location at a fraction of the cost of doing it on your own. In addition we will have brokers available to help you with any trades or sales to ensure you're safety while dealing with other players.

    I'm sure many of you will have questions, if so do not hesitate to forward them to me via pm or icq.

    Also, due to the recent issues of security in the Rares Community I would like to assure everyone that as I have done in the past, this project will be run by me and only close friends whom I would trust with my own account will be involved in any manner. In addition as of right now I will be the one performing the trade broker services to prevent there being any question of safety. Again though, got questions? Let me know!

    More information will be coming soon!

    It sounds interesting. I am looking forward to learning more about it.

    I do have a concern though. What if you decide to take a break from UO again?

    I've been meaning to stop and tell you "thank you" for starting the rares fests in the first place. I think it was a great idea and the festivals have brought a lot of enjoyment to many rares collectors.

    First off my pleasure, Its been exciting over the past several years to see the way its taken off and turned into something much larger than what I had ever imagined.

    Second, thats a very valid concern. If I do decide to take a break or quit UO again I would leave this project in the hands of someone I trust to treat it with the care and respect it deserves and I know will treat the other players who use the service with respect and loyalty.

    As we have discussed, I think this is a great idea. Brings an all new excitement into something we all love about this game, and that is collecting and couldn't come at a better time. Lift the dark cloud as of late and on with the new! :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    The x-shard feature sounds great, being able to split the cost between a few people well your item is in trusted hands sounds very nice.

    If you leave, I don't want to be in charge of it because I am lazy.

    Great idea

    Question... who are your close friends on this project?
     
  14. DVI

    DVI Guest

    Nothing is set in stone yet, but the one individual who will be assisting me as of yet is Sup Soc of Atlantic, who will be on hand to broker any trades if needed. It would be your decision to use his services or my own, or an outside third party.

    I do not plan to have any chests or containers co-owned or friend accessible unless it is for the specific person of transferring an item to someone. Also, all transfers, etc will be handed by myself personally so no items will be put into anyone elses hands.

    I know a few people like me are from Europe and play/played Europa, i have a castle there [my old museum] doing nothing just holding all the junk i'v collect over the last 9 years as my museum is on atlantic now since iv played there for the last 18 months.

    If you'd like to turn it into another hub im happy for it to be the European vendor house as its just sat there doing nothing.

    why is everyone from Europa awesome? it's been true since the birth of that server!

    In the future we may expand to more shards than what has been planned.

    As of now there will be one shard from the east coast, central region and west coast, and as of right now the planned shards are the largest and busiest. After the 3 American shards have been brought online we will begin the process of opening a European hub as well....so do not fear Europeans you're not going to be left out of this venture!

    I fully support the idea of shared transit....
    this kind of trading reminds me of the game we used to play on the computer in school...

    While I'm sure many will have deduced this already based off comments made I wanted to make it official.

    Two of the three houses which will be used for this project have been acquired.

    The first will be located on Atlantic, the second will be located on Pacific. Both houses are within sight of the Luna walls, and are within a few seconds walk of the city.

    If you choose great lakes there is an open spot out the east luna gates then up a little that is located along the main ring around the city.
