The blackmarket for MMO gaming has been around since the launch of Ultima Online back in 1997 when the first players realized they could sell their in-game items and accounts to other players for real money. Since then gamers have been selling their accounts for real money totaling hundreds of millinos of dollars in games like World of Warcraft (WoW), Everquest 2 (EQ2), Diablo 2 (D2) and soon Diablo 3 as well as many other titles.
So where do players go for their MMO account buying, selling and trading needs? Well there are many sites and forums out there that cater to these types of players, however most either take a large percentage of the profits or just aren’t very safe. You can sell your account to resellers, but they won’t pay anywhere near the market value since they have to resell them themselves to make a profit and buying one from them isn’t a great idea either since their prices are alsway high.
You can go to one of the many forums out there, however most are crawling with scammers looking to take advantage of unsuspecting buyers and sellers. Also, eBay no longer allows the sale of virtual items, in part because of all the scams which were happening through the use of that auction site.
So where do players turn? MMOBay.net, one of the most respected auction sites for MMO account buying and selling. MMOBay takes security very seriously and is the only site around that manually reviews every new registered account to make sure they are not a known scammer. The best thing about the site is that it’s 100% free to use, no listing or closing fees which means buyers can find cheap accounts and sellers can keep all the profits for themselves. There you can find hundreds of WoW accounts as well as many other games like RIFT, Maplestory, Eve Online, FFXI Online, LoTRO, Runescape, and many more.
MMOBay.net also has a free trading forum for dozens of MMORPGs including all the ones listed above. The forums use their own security measurements to provide the safest possible environment for players to trade their accounts at, providing verification and Middleman services to members.
