Marketplace - 'Only the cheapest can be sold'


6 posts in this topic

Posted

Trying to find a paticilur piece of armor, and it's in high demand so I'm sat in Marketplace spamming refresh. 3 of the items appear, I decide to go for the second one as people will most likely spam the first, and it tells me I can't buy it, I must buy the cheapest option. Which by the time this stupid ass message showed up, all 3 were sold.

Wtf why is this even a thing?

It's infuriating when you're trying to buy multiple of one item. Say you need 50 and there's a listing for exactly 50 on slot 7, slot 1-6 are taken by 1s, 2s, 3s, etc. and you have to buy 'em all entering in the captcha one by one. :l

It's a fairly antiquated system isn't it? Really not suited for an MMO with potentially 1,000's of people bidding on item at once.

I love the market minigame it adds a whole new layer of immersion to purchasing, it reminds me of waiting in line at the supermarket while a slow old lady cautiously packs her bags and the cashier who should be retired slowly scan items along, then when it's time to pay she spends an eternity rummaging through her oversized bag full of trinkets and random junk in a search for her tiny purse to then sort through all her loose change, dropping it all over the floor without a care in the world for everyone waiting in line behind her.

It's fun when a 5 minute trip to the shop ends up taking an hour isn't it ?

Just to add on to this rather irritating issue.

When going to post some items I had, I noticed that the MAX price I was able to set it for, was LESS than the current MIN price of the items already listed.

Example: Item on the market is 1000 minimum.  I try to post, and it tells me my maximum is 900.

It's like we are inadvertently being asked to lower the market.

I've kinda half given up posting items now, keeping them for my own crafting and save you all from further drops in prices on my side :)
