Only the cheapest item can be purchased.

Why is this still a thing?

It is so annoying you want to just buy 1 item with 1000's of the items listed and you cant because they are repeatedly listed to the marketplace and go through bid phase.

Somebody please fix this systems, idc if i have to pay 20k extra to get my item and walk away.

Good. Whoever thought of this idea should be fired immediately.

Once I was trying for legit 5 minutes to buy beer. "Item already sold!" "Failed at purchasing the item!" "Only the cheapest item can be purchased!" 

GTFO

Imagine you have to buy a stack of 500 items but there are 40-50 single cheaper items you have to buy before you are able to get to the 500 stack.
A nightmare!
So happy it's gone.

I know this is annoying and together with the marketplace bots, it makes purchasing an item a true nightmare, while everyone is queuing for the same item.

However I do understand why a system like this was put in place. Marketplace inflation is our answer. 

We'll all regret it soon, once it's gone, as everyone will compete to have the best market prices and everything will drop to the ground.

You see it in every mmo out there, without fixed pricing. Everyone posts their item 2 silvers/gold/whatever currency less. 

I don't mind fixed prices at all and I hope they'll remain. The O.P. title however is a different thing and that should be lifted.

I think the pricing stays the same.
The ppl above just claim that you are soon able to buy the item for a higher price instead of only the cheapest item.

I can bet you 1 mule and 2 bowls of wheat flour that the prices will go all over the place

I highly doubt they will ever relinquish control over pricing.

i think this was put into place so someone couldn't list a cheaper item for max price and have a friend buy it to trade gold. 

For example look at all those tri livertos for 250m. someone is like "oh i'm rich want can i do to give my friend money? Oh! List that tri liverto for 310 mil! i'll know for sure you'll get the money because your's is the most expensive!" or even RMTs that will use this to buy a specific customer's item to exchange gold.

3 months later we get a fix but not the fix we need

If an item of the same type with the lowest price (or within lower price range) is in the bidding phase, you will only be able to purchase/bid that lowest-priced version of the item.

Such a crummy time wasting mechanic

One reason is to avoid silver transfers between specific players.

Otherwise you could list every crap at max price, what usually doesnt even sell at min price, and your bot buys the crap.

With this system, bot would either need to buy the cheaper crap first, or you need to list as same price as others.

 

Just in the case of beer it's really annoying. IMO a better solution would be to exclude items from the bid system, that are in masses already sitting on the market. No need for bidding when it's plenty available for everyone.
