2005-09-19Swap shop opened!
The swap shop is (finally) open! Using it, you can trade (multiple) items to other players for (multiple) items. It also introduces a much needed "bidding" system where you can simply offer a bundle of items for trade and instead of setting an explicit price, you can have a suggestion and let others make their own offers.
I think the Swap Shop is a huge step up in functionality from the Market, though overall they serve different purposes. If you're wondering, the Swap Shop is not replacing the Market, merely complementing it.
