The commercialization of personal items in PlayerUnknown Battlefield has been temporarily suspended, according to the developers of the PUBG Corporation news sites launched today by Steam.
To illustrate, personal items are treated when you give another player an item in your inventory for free. This is one of the two ways to trade on Steam, and the other is to sell these items through Steam Marketplace.
PUBG did not say much about why this decision was made, simply because “it has seen few cases of players using a personal trade function to sell products using third-party sites.” PUBG Corporation considered this a violation of its system and suspended personal transactions while seeking a “better solution”.
While the trade is intended for personal goods to be a simple way, for example, give a friend an item that you do not want, the system has been used to deal with the sale of in-game items on Steam in exchange for real money. This, of course, is not a surprise to those who have been following the controversy about selling a third party in the game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
For years, CS players have sold their masks on third-party sites for money. The gray market has been in the spotlight for two years thanks to the big betting sites that allow players to risk their gaming masks. In response, the valve began to crack down on the websites to play because it does not comply with the subscription service agreement, noting that “the commercial use of the Steam accounts is not licensed and for the breach of the SSA.”
For almost a month, Valve has announced stricter rules regarding the circulation of personal items in CS: GO. Now players have to wait seven days before they can exchange an item, which FALF expects to stop fraud and fraud.
This has been a constant problem in the economics of virtual articles on Steam, a challenge facing the PlayerUnknown arena as well. PUBG Corporation said that “once you know how to prevent abuse, restrictions will be lifted.” But he did not specify a window when it was. However, it is an understandable step. Since PUBG implemented the tradable items for the first time, the players worked tirelessly to find ways to exploit the game.
