My Opinion on Trade ‘N’ Sell, Vintage Gold, and MyMall
This is a very controversial topic among Fantage, and I want to share my opinion about it.
Trade ‘N’ Sell
Everyone loved Trade ‘N’ Sell, how you could:
- get rare items
- transfer stars/ecoins to your own account
- host “giveaways” on Facebook.
I liked how:
- people could get items they really wanted
- nonmembers were given power.
But, everyone knows, the bad part was scamming.
Scamming wasn’t good, but it wasn’t entirely Fanage’s fault. The victim wasn’t smart enough to look out for such tricks. If you’re careful, you wouldn’t get scammed. I don’t mean any offense to people out there who got scammed, I’m just saying that scamming wasn’t the shop’s fault, so scamming wasn’t the reason why Trade ‘N’ Sell closed down.
In my opinion, the reason Trade ‘N’ Sell closed was because no one was buying ecoins. Some people bought membereship so they could post starred items, but ecoins and stars were passed around everywhere. People had millions of stars/ecoins. So Fantage was losing money.
So Vintage Gold came.
Many people, includng myself, disliked it when Trade ‘N’ Sell closed down. And even more people disliked it when Vintage Gold opened.
They didn’t like how:
- Rare items were being sold, thus losing their “value”
- The prices were so high
- The “voting” didn’t affect the items being sold
I myself agreed with everything above except for the second one. Prices had to be high, or else it would lose the little “value” it had left. And also because of all those people out there with crazy amounts of money. It is unfair for the normal people, though -_-
Honestly, I can’t find any good things about Vintage Gold. People like how they could get their favorite items, but to me, it seems like Vintage Gold is selling the same old items every time. If you check regularly, you’d understand.
Fantagians decided to quit because of Vintage Gold. So Fantage opened up MyMall.
This is where it gets interesting…
A new currency came out. Gold
People disliked gold. So did I. You had to pay real money to get gold. Seriously, Fantage?
But then I noticed how many people bought gold. Fantage probably loved this, I thought. So many people were paying them. They were earning money.
I think Gold was a good idea. Stars and Ecoins were worth nothing anymore, so the only solution was a new currency.
But I don’t believe that gold had to take over completely. Events should be gold-free.
Maybe Fantage should add a bit of gold as prizes during events?
I liked Trade ‘N’ Sell, but it didn’t work out well. I never got scammed, so I didn’t really care about it >.<
Vintage Gold was bad. 😡
MyMall isn’t perfect, but it was nessessary.
