    i think this trade board revamp is far more than I expected. They overdid a lot of things. Great job devs! (sad for players who manually did this math to earn some extra ed)

    the only downside is the 5% forced tax in personal trade.
    i guess this will further encourage to just use the board and buy the premium (unless the item is worth more than 10b).
    VVIP which i frequently did because of the 10% tax, but now with only 5% tax, I have to see if KC:ED ratio of my sales is worth the investment. Some servers have a very inflated kching ratio so paying 5% taxes is just cheaper.

    i wonder if players will have to adjust their prices to include or lose the forced tax in personal trade (if they ever choose it over board), example:
    * im selling +9 at 500b >Buyer gives 500m, but seller only receives 475m; losing 25m or pay 526.32m so seller receives almost exactly 500m.
    * im selling +11 at 10b >Buyer gives 10b, but seller only receives 9.5b; losing 500m or pay 10.53b so seller receives almost exactly 10b.

    Thanks 2na!, i always check elwiki updates here first.

    This update is a big middle finger for people without shared bank :(
    If you were to trade for ED with someone else you would lose a bunch of ED, lets say 500 kk you would lose like 50kk in the trade

      idiot will always said : just buy it its not expensive, while not considering that you need to pay with your own money(non tradeable) to unlock the most important stuff in the game

    “Personal trade ED tax is 5%” Dafuq is this?!

  • MarieWolf_94 says:

    about time they delivered on a worthwhile QoL concern. i dont quite understand the purpose of the 5% tax though. this “tax” thing is done in a lot of MMOs for trade/market and i never understood the purpose of it. it just feels like it’s burning off a few in-game money (in Els’s case ED) for no reason, and that youre just losing out on money you could use towards in-game NPC markets or crafting. i could only assume this is a balance thing, but balance for what exactly? well, whatever, this update is overall pretty solid from the looks of it so thats all that matters

  • Labyrinth says:

    I think the 5% in trading is a good thing. Now the trading board and personal trades are on the same field. Most people will prefer using the board. Scammers have less opportunities to scam. It’s easier for buyers to find the lowest price. The markets prices are more transparent. The traders who offer insanely high prices can be hold accountable. Too bad for people who don’t have shared bank, but they don’t offer much financial value to kog so why should kog care for them. It’s a game. They should just quit if they are having a hard time.

    • Flare Kyn says:

      Thing is, personal trades require you to be in the same place as the person you’re trading with AND you both have to be logged in while trading, while board allows you to buy items even when the seller isn’t logged in. So no, they aren’t on the same field. Nor should they ever be, because they’re fundamentally different from each other.

      • Labyrinth says:

        They are fundamentally the same thing since I am trading one thing for another. It’s just you need to use currency with the board, like currency is used for majority of trades in real life. You can also choose to trade with items with personal trade which board doesn’t allow. I’m satisfied with this change. Kog is the organization you need to persuade, not me.

          You were literally trying to persuade Flare… The irony. The fee is just stupid. People without shared bank gonna suffer even more. Always making things even worse
