Here is what I don't get about these Pearl Shoppers!

8 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

OKAY so, a lot of people nowadays sell items or want to buy items with pearls involved.

It usually goes like this!

 

("THE GUY WHO WANTS TO BUY")

"WTB Dandelion Greatsword, will only give you the pearls from successful purchase!"

LOL OKAY! Here is the thing. Wouldn't the successful purchase depends on YOU? So why would the seller have to risk a Dandelion BOX with a chance that you might not have enough silver to win the bid phased? Wouldn't it make more sense to give the pearls to the seller first since the entire bid phased depends on YOU? It wouldn't be his fault if it went on bid and oh... guess what! I didn't have enough silver to win the bid phased. Tough luck dude, go kill 150+ more KARANDA.

 

BUT HOLD ON! I'm not giving my pearls first. YOU ARE A STRANGER.

Well... if thats the case, wouldn't the seller be in the same shoes as you? You are a stranger to him as well so...

 

YOU GET IT?! this is why Pearl Trading is -----ing stupid.

They are abusing the gift system cause no matter how stupid it sounds, they know there are some people that are desperate and will bite on their bait.

If getting item or not depend only on buyer why he would ever need to give seller any pearls in this place? If he have enough silver to win preorder he can just put it on MP and wait, ppl are selling rare items everyday... Especially if its about tri or tet, there is completely 0 reason to pay pearls for listing tri or tet on MP, since seller with tri/tet dont have any tools to make it easier for you to get item (cheaper)... If its unopened box then its different story, seller can enchant item for you to like +10-15 and it can be worth for some players to pay pearls, cause thx to that they can buy item with a lot lower preorder (there is really low chance that anyone have preorders on +10-15), but for tri or tet? 0 reason to pay any pearls for that....

Ya most people dont pearl trade.  Some might pearl trade privately like if they know each other..... I know for a fact several big streamers have done this with their buddies.  But whats the big deal.  Those sales are for things like PEN Dande and shit like that.  Id want pearls too, and they would likely not post it anyways.

Even if I agreed to gift pearls to someone upon purchase of an item there is currently no way to verify if I bought the item. Therefore I am under no obligation to do so. Moral compass aside you are some dumbass sucker on the internet to me, that's all.

Please give and receive Pearls so that I can snipe the item from you.

 

I have no problem with this system.

 

The transaction of Pearls gives no advantage to the seller or the buyer.

 

 

 

everyone sees the who won the pre order

They see the name of the character who put in the pre-order, not a family name, nor necessarily the name of the alt you were messaging the seller with. So even a successful pre-order can escape detection. The Pearl transaction has no way of being verified at all. This is all fine, of course.
