Eliminate Cumbersome Bidding on the Cash Market Status: Will be added

Detailed Description:

I see two great forces in this game which continually collide with each other.

1. W3C wants us players to convert all game cash above a few trillion to GC.

2. Actually performing this conversion is a pain in the rear end because in order to unload game cash, we have to keep track of boatloads of auctions and getting outbid at the last possible second is as inevitable as death and financial services, er, taxes.

That said I wouldn't mind converting cash to coins quite so much if it wasn't such a pain in the neck. Hell I could probably even benefit from it. But the problem is that it is a pain in the neck, so I'd rather buy ammo--it gets rid of my cash just the same, and it is much easier than playing sim e-bay.

Somewhere in the game, a mechanism already exists to match offered sale price to requested buy price--it's whatever mechanism reconciles offers to bids in the market for in-game products. This mechanism (or a variant thereof) should be implemented in the direct trading market. I should just be able to offer game cash--"I will sell to anyone willing to accept 650B cash for one GC" and possibly have the price decrease by a fixed percentage, set by the seller of game cash, for every RL day the cash sits waiting for buyers. Likewise, people looking for game cash would enter the parameters for their bids and wait for a match.

The war engine is nearing completion--now it is time for W3C to act on all those polls about having a more streamlined direct trading market.

Vote YES if you want a streamlined direct trading market so you don't have to sit drooling over your computer outbidding everyone else for coins.

Vote NO if you'd rather play sim e-bay.
