PlayerAuctions is the Top Player-to-Player Trade Marketplace

You don’t have to go far for proof of this fact. We’ve got state of the art security, a welcoming community, and provides 24/7 customer support. We have been running without a hitch since 1999, and our trading community is constantly growing. While we can’t really eliminate any unsavory elements, we try our best to keep damage at a minimum. Any dispute between buyer and seller is also met with a thorough investigation to find the best solution.

With a New Feature: the Market Price Tracker

Now, we have a new service, and it’s the PlayerAuctions Market Price Tracker. It’s a concept mainly for tracking stock prices, but here it is applied to player-to-player trading. It tracks the price of a game currency in a span of time (from a week to almost a year). A chart represents and shows the rise and fall of the game’s currency’s price to make it easier to see.

While that’s the main purpose of the tool, there are a few other information to take note of on the page. The first is the varying prices of the currency in different servers (if applicable). That table shows the average price and whether it has risen or dropped in seven days. Next is the chart that shows the best-rated sellers there are for the currency. There’s space for only seven, but rest assured, there are more trustworthy sellers than those seven. Last but definitely not the least, there’s another graph that shows the most expensive item sold for that game.

Why Should You Care?

Well, the first reason is to maximize your profits. Sure, you could be drowning in dough by just selling the most expensive item you can think of. But what if you can make that dough even larger?

The first way is by learning the patterns of the game economy. That can be aided by the chart that maps the rise and fall of the currency’s price. By looking at the dates when the price rises and checking what event or update happened, you can predict when the next spike will be. Then you can sell your item or currency for more than usual. You can even track it per server if you wish.

The second is by showing who the reliable sellers are. PlayerAuctions has a system where former buyers of a seller can leave a comment on the currency, service, or item they bought. As those accumulate, the next buyers of that same service/item/currency can be sure that the seller will deliver. On the market tracker page, you can see the highest-rated ones. You’ll be able to buy their wares without worry.

The third is by categorizing all the offers by the server they operate on, you don’t have to struggle with the filters and scouring through irrelevant offers. There’s even a link to the offers on the page so you can go directly to where you need to go.

We’re dedicated to giving the best trading platform we can. That means consistent, reliable service and constant upgrading and addition of features new and old. You can even help us improve by sending your suggestions by email.

Classic PC Titles That Continue to Withstand the Test of Time

Classic PC Titles That Continue to Withstand the Test of Time

Timelessness is the one characteristic that separates a classic title from games that come a dime-a-dozen. For a game to truly stand the test of time, however, it needs constant innovation. Moreover, it needs to do so without compromising the core qualities that made it such a standout in the first place. It doesn’t matter if a game may seem dated because of grainy graphics or its mechanics are somewhat passé. It all boils down to the gaming experience that people can take from it. From niche crowds, right up to the mainstream, the world of gaming is strewn with titles that embody the word longevity.

Today, we’ll take a look at a few classic PC titles that continue to stand up to the test of time–80s and 90s PC games that embody versatility and longevity. While there are certainly others that fit the bill as well, we narrowed our choices down to the top three most relevant titles in terms of overall impact in gaming culture and current mainstream relevance.

Ultima Online

The Ultima series had already had numerous iterations—with each release proving to be more successful than its predecessor—under its belt before Origin Systems finally decided to hop on the online bandwagon. The result was Ultima Online which was rolled out way back in 1997 as one of the most highly-touted Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games. To create a buzz, the game was kicked off with the assassination of (producer) Richard Garriot’s avatar during a stress test.

With multiple Guinness records and a rich history to boot, Ultima Online certainly fits the bill as a timeless masterpiece. While the initial subscriber expectation was set at a meager 15,000, it actually reached an excess of 120,000 subscribers after a year. With such numbers, it’s should come as no surprise that it still has steam.

Starcraft

Released all the way back in 1998, Starcraft is amazingly still being updated even two decades later. Though when you think about it, it really should come as no surprise. Gaining a solid fan base right from the get-go—to the tune of 1.5 million copies sold in 1998—it still rides high after 20 years. Starcraft’s appeal and cultural impact is undeniable as it is far-reaching.

A timeless game needs to change with the times while retaining the key components that made it appealing to the masses in the first place. With all the updates over the years, Blizzard Entertainment managed to make Starcraft as relevant today as it was back in the Nineties.

Genesis

Here’s the oldest of our trifecta of classics that refuse to succumb to Father Time: Genesis. In fact, Genesis is so old-school, it’s actually a text-based game! Back in 1989, very few people—if at all—knew about the internet. It was during such Jurassic conditions that a group of savvy Swedish students created the game. It didn’t stay a humble game, though. As the internet grew, so did the game. As a result, there are over 60 guilds for players to join, and a sprawling expanse of the world—including Middle Earth and the Forgotten Realms—to explore.

A great game can be found practically anywhere. You don’t even need to get in on the latest releases to enjoy a fully immersive experience. Do yourself a favor and indulge in these retro games before time finally catches up and snatches them away from us. Enjoy!

League of Legends is Here to Stay

League of Legends is Here to Stay

League of Legends (LoL), is an MOBA similar to DOTA but different. LoL is easier to learn and more accessible. Plus, it’s not as punishing as DOTA. Also, there are new heroes in the game that have more of a generic-feeling than the heroes in DOTA. With a larger hero pool, a rotating free hero system allows players to cycle through all the heroes without paying. The wait time is about a one month or so to cycle through all of them. You can use a hero that isn’t free by paying for them to get unlocked (it depends on whether you like a challenge or prefer a consecutive match).

The Significance of LoL Items

LoL items (the way it’s usually understood) is purely situational, and they don’t carry over to the next rounds of LoL. Players can earn gold that can be spent to buy items to boost a champion. As the game progresses, you can upgrade items. However, the items are only accessible until the game ends. When a new game starts, for example, the item used or gold that was earned in the last game doesn’t carry over. Those tradable items become Riot points (an in-game currency to buy hero skins and champions).

Do you want a champion that’s locked? Buy them with Riot points. Don’t like how they look? Buy skins and/or chroma to change how your heroes look with a unique scheme. In fact, you can even change the character’s voice. Ward skins are available for purchase if you prefer having an unconventional appearance. There are bundles you can only buy with Riot Points, which provide a set of champions, skins, and runes. Boosts can be bought to increase how much Summoner Exp or Influence Points players gain.

The question is, “What’s the point of having more Summoner Exp or Influence Points?” Well, Summoner Exp unlocks Rune slots as you gather more. However, it also decreases the number of Influence Points that allow players to buy champions that haven’t been unlocked. Keep in mind that you’ll need more IP when Riot Points are used. You can also buy individual Runes with IP, which cannot be done with RP. In contrast, you can’t buy bundles or ward skins with IP.

LoL Account: Enjoy the Perks

There are two ways to get an account: (1) create an account on the official website, or (2) buy League of Legends accounts from gamers. Dealing with players provides an advantage since you won’t start from scratch. Whatever the owner(s) have unlocked (champions or skins), you’ll receive. The account’s Summoner Exp will also carry over, so there are more Rune slots and/or pages. Any unspent RP or IP carries over.

Consider that some sites and sellers who provide accounts aren’t honest. Be careful from where you buy items or accounts. On the other hand, there is one reliable network with legitimate sellers: PlayerAuctions. We are the safest and easiest player to player network to buy, sell, and trade accounts. Grab some LoL items and take your game to another level with a LoL account. Dominate the league!
