September 3, 2019
The first day of September was not only the first day of Fall but also the day when MoreMMR users got introduced with a new currency and a marketplace. In the following short Q&A session, we will try to answer the main questions users may have and to do so, we had a talk with Ilya Kolesnikov, product manager at MoreMMR:
Why was the new currency and marketplace added?
The marketplace makes the reward system more practical for users and contains everything necessary. We decided that in this format it would be more convenient for players to receive rewards for activities on the platform, so that’s simply it. In fact, it was planned a very long time ago. Of course, along with the store, we added a new currency so that there is no confusion with gold, which cannot be gained by activities.
How to earn MorePoints?
Everything is very simple, to receive MorePoints it is enough to be an active user of MoreMMR. You can earn MorePoints by: completing quests, participating in the Weekly Cup, or achieving the top of the Leaderboard or Trainer. Of course, for each activity, you will receive more or fewer MorePoints, depending on the complexity of the task. It is important to note that we made it impossible to purchase a new currency with real money, meaning that it can only be earned through the activities on the site.
What items can we buy in the store?
We start small — Arcanas and Immortals, then we will add more and more different products from Dota itself and from our partners, which are going to be devices, subscriptions, merchandise and much more. You can check out all of the already available products on the Marketplace page.
How the users will get the purchased items?
Everything is very simple, in order to get the item, you will need to type in your trade link and have your Steam inventory options set as open.
Ilya answered the main questions about the update, but if you do not understand something or want more details, please feel free to ask in the comments. It is very important for us to make the marketplace interesting and for every player to find something exciting to buy there.
