at the moment, pre-ordering and buying low-supply or high-demand (or both) items on the mp can be a very frustrating experience, with the limits on pre-orders and frankly effing stupid bidding system, where even buying items on the mp is subject to rng (as though the game didn't have enough rng already).

  • please remove the pre-order limits. allow us to place multiple pre-orders on different items as opposed to the current one active pre-order only.
  • please let the seller get the pre-order amount minus tax as opposed to the current arbitrary mp max price minus tax regardless of the pre-order amount. if someone is willing to empty their storage of silver for something, the seller deserves to get the full amount instead of the silver disappearing into the mp. kakao will probably veto this because it will limit people pearl trading, but whatevs.
  • please let pre-orders apply throughout all the markets instead of being limited to one region only. if someone can pay top dollar for something, they deserve to get it, instead of relying on location rng then bidding rng if a seller lists it somewhere else.
  • please show the current highest pre-order for an item on the interface. once again, if someone can pay top dollar for something, they deserve to get it, instead of having to play guessing games about price and region.
  • please ffs do something about the "bidding" system. first of all, it's completely rng who succeeds, and not actually bidding where the highest bidder wins an item. if rng is not on your side (it never is for me), not only can i not upgrade my gear because of rng, i can't even buy items i want off the mp because of rng. ridiculous.

on top of this, i think many players have built up lots of questions about the game (including the current derpy mp mechanics) and we could probably do with another dev Q&A like after launch so some myths can be dispelled and the devs can see what the na + eu community's concerns are. suspect this won't happen as is typical of korean games, but i got it off my chest, so whatever.

I'm pretty sure they said that it wasn't location based.  There was confusion since 2 GM's said different things, but they cleared it up and said that the market was not location based.

i've placed both notifications and pre-orders for some items, and sometimes i get a notification but i don't get the item in my mail, then it appears on the mp 15 minutes later (which means nobody has placed a higher pre-order than i did in that region, i'm guessing). either something is broken, or pre-orders are based on region.

Actually, it's RNG on whether it goes to pre-order or not. There are hundreds of people or more pre-ordering logs due to epheria sailboat, but there are still times when they bypass pre-order and go to bid. You will only get the item if 1. It goes to pre-order, and 2. You win the pre-order.

how do you know it's rng? all we had were two conflicting posts from two gms and they never bothered to clarify things after that. what's the point of making us set our own prices for pre-orders if it goes to rng anyway? and why bother to mention which region we set the pre-order in? PA really need to clarify this nonsense. i took a break the first time because of enchanting rng. now i'm making silver to buy stuff and if the retarded mp isn't going to work either, i think i'll just uninstall because i can't get gear no matter what i do.

going to send a ticket to get clarification. if the gms ignore it, kakao can go and hump whales for their money.

 

edit: just saw this in support:

My pre-order isn't working:

The reason why your pre-order did not work may be one of the following:

  • After you register a pre-order, it can take some time for it to become active.
  • Another player has pre-ordered the same item at a higher price, in which case it will be sold to them instead.
  • If you are trying to buy a piece of equipment, please note that pre-orders are enhancement-dependant. So if you place a pre-order for a +2 equipment item, and someone lists a +3 equipment item, your pre-order will not count for that.

Regardless of the above, there is also always a chance that an item will skip the pre-order phase and go directly onto the marketplace as a normal sale. This is an intended game mechanic.

Please keep in mind that player-to-player trade is not a feature in our game, and the marketplace pre-order system is not designed to be a workaround for this.

Note: If you win a pre-order, you will lose all of the money that you used to place the pre-order, even if the bought item was registered on the marketplace for less.

seriously? not enough rng in this game? even the freaking marketplace is rng!

They already clarified that preorders are not a 100% guaranteed.  Theres a chance for the item to bypass preorders.  The GM's have already confirmed that the market place is not location based.  If you tried looking, the information is there.

They do this so that people who don't pre-order will actually have a chance to get an item. Imagine if everything went to pre-order first. The market would be empty of weapons and armor.
