Another Step Towards the Perfection of Virtual Economies
MMOBUX analyses success factors of virtual economies in popular MMOs
Jan. 10, 2013 - PRLog -- The premier site for in-game virtual currencies, MMOBUX, published new findings on Jacksonlab.com and Gigagamers.com which expand upon key factors in developing 'Virtual Economies'. The in-depth articles on the respective sites list out major and influential roles that virtual economies have to play in today's multiplayer online games.
Jackson Business Lab was conceptualized to cater to bloggers and business lovers with up to date news. The main aim is to provide global business news on a daily basis. Through this site, MMOBUX successfully informs readers about 'Virtual Economics: Fake Money Can Mean Real Fun'.
Mentioned in the article are reasons why virtual economies became an integral concern for various companies interested in producing successful MMOs. Today, most MMO games are based on the idea of obtaining items (whether virtual or not) to level up as quickly as possible and claim a position in some sort of leader board. As such, large amounts of items are sought-after by players to enhance their chances of achieving this. A typical strategy is the crafting of items, subsequently flooding the market with readily available user-made weapons and armor. These elements added together construct the initial basis of any economy within the MMO genre.
On the other hand, GigaGamers is an independent website ran for gamers by gamers. It heavily focuses on console and PC gaming. The website covers news relating to the gaming industry, release dates, and video game previews. MMOBUX lays down different factors that influence virtual economies with the help of World of Warcraft's latest expansion: Mists of Pandaria. The article 'How the Mists of Pandaria Has Affected the Virtual Economy in World of Warcraft' talks about WoW's latest expansion and how its virtual economy was affected by new gold sinks as well as changes to the crafting and farming system of the game. Acquiring gold on all items is not as easy as it was supposed to be in previous expansions. Since WoW's economy is now considered to be a lot more complex, gamers can also expect greater rewards than ever before from exploiting loopholes in said system.
Virtual economies are playing an important role in making persistent online games a lasting success. Game publishers and gamers can take a note of it with the help of an excellent example stated above – World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria.
