    A handicap in the sense that I'm forcing myself to go back to lower level zones for the sake of gathering resources. So, I can still craft, it just takes a little longer than it otherwise would.

    This has, probably, indirectly benefited me, in the sense that I'm not completely broke from splurging on mats from the TP.

    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    I'm a crafter too and..

    this isn't that big of a deal for me. Things like this happen, I guess I like farming up mats too. /shrug

    There's no CoD.

    Only thing that works right now is trusting people, sending the item and hope they will send money back.

    So far I've done around 10 transactions that way and never been scammed. I will probably will at one point but it doesn't really matter... it's still better than salvaging stuff for 1 iron when you have a high probability of someone being honest and sendng you 20silver for an item.

    Huh, wouldn't know i haven't been selling or buying anything since between me and 2 friends i've had 0 issues getting ANYTHING i need... only one out of us that's having any issues is the jewel crafter but that's because he outleveled us by a good amount and we aren't mining gold yet...

    NOW it's working. Finally.

    EDIT = Nevermind. This time I could see items on the auction house but I guess everyone going on it at the same time crashed it shortly afterwards. Heh. Next time I will make the call, the AH will be up at least an hour before posting.

    That is where I will be, with my 30 gold, just waiting to soak up everything to use to my benefit. Mwahahaha!

    OT: Yeah, it sucks... lol

    P.S. - For those wondering, the reason I have 30g is because I have yet to do crafting and have sold EVERYTHING I have found; as well as sold through in-game mail. BTW...does anyone wanna buy 107 Tiny Fangs? I have to find out who the hell uses them. As far as I am aware even the crafters that it says in the note that SHOULD use them still have yet to find a recipe to actually do so.
    I know for sure Leatherworkers use them for the insignias, i would imagine other professsions use them for the same.

    Seriously doubt it was gold farmers, more than likely their systems were not ready for the crush of players all wanting to sell their items.

    I redestroy them , resalvagin components ( a bit part of them). Do't worry, noone is gonna buy low level trash made by a profession. What people will eventually buy is special 400 stuff.

    I do honestly wonder that when people make a claim to laziness or something, if they really honestly believe that they're all going 'eeeeh we'll get to it later.' And then like.. pictures them kicking back on beach chairs and swimming in money, or something.

    An MMO launch has to be unimaginably stressful. Picture the developer, the individual dev guy, who after years of work, YEARS, he is now watching his work get released into the world. And inevitably (as with all launches) there are problems. That's scary! Of course they want to fix it. They want it all fixed yesterday. Last week.

    Blah blah stress test, I've read it... there really is no reliable way to simulate what happens to hardware and programs when a major MMO launches. There simply isn't. You can simulate it - i.e. constraining servers to artificially stress the load - but you can't simulate it very accurately. Maybe some day in the future.

    So, because they're working hard to fix it, we can't complain about the here and now?

    "Sir, the western half of the country's power grid has failed!"
    "Don't complain, we're already working on it!"

    The trading post is a pretty big feature to completely disable when there's no other method of trading within the game. Its been down for close to 4 days, I think we have the right to complain at this point.

    1. Comparison to D3. LOL. In D3 is AH the main feature of the game. The. Main. Feature. In GW2 you can play just fine without even know there is the AH.

    2. People dont have much money right now, so even the best, most epic item in the game will be sold under the price. Already saw people in chat trying to sol some mediocre low level items for 3-4 gold. LOL.

    So yes, it would be nice to have the AH. But rather they make it good and dont rush it Blizz-style.

    While there are, undoubtedly, some selfless souls who work extra hard to make sure everyone has a pleasant time, I've been around the corporate world a few too many years to believe that this is a majority, or, indeed, even a significant minority of people at any given company. Most people would call it a day past 6 pm, come hell or high water, unless they're forced to be there or there are significant overtime perks. I've literally seen people who are critical to troubleshooting a difficult situation walk out of the office when the day was over, because to them work was just work, and when the day was done, the day was done - to hell with anyone who was inconvenienced by that.

    I do not think the developers are being lazy at all. Quite the contrary, I expect them to be incredibly busy with such a thing as this.

    Doesn't take away that it's 'bah' that it's not up ;P like I said, one can only hope they fix the problem soon

    I feel sad that D3 is a standard of how bad it can be but... still not as bad as D3. I agree that it's taking too long (should've been ready at the start) but they're working on it and you can tell by them testing it quite a bit.

    There is no excuse, this isnt to say that the game is bad because of it, but as well as people (rightfully) blamed blizzard about the server and AH issues of D3, its only fair that people get upset about this in GW2.

    It is unbelievable that they couldnt get it working yet.
    Except the AH is considerably more important in D3 and people were simply unable to progress without it, no AH in GW2 has not stopped me levelling my characters, not stopped me from PvPing, not even stopped me from crafting.
