    Well, there is a good side to the TP being down. You will have so many materials for crafting, the level 60-80 slump will be much easier to get through! I am also curious how the economy will be affected when it returns. I was seeing copper ore being sold for 4c a unit, during the small window I had to use the TP. Should be fun in any case.

    Hacving said this, i dont bash the developers, i know they are probably working on it, i know its not the only thing they have to worry about and i know it was a hard to test feature because they needed tons of players trying to use it to stress test it.

    But the AH is still down after more than 4 days, and there is nothing wrong in complaining about it, as long as its a respectfull complaint.

    In terms of issues I don't think it's a big one. It's not preventing anyone progressing, it's not preventing anyone playing the game. It could be worse. At least your client isn't crashing when you try to loot a mob. Yes it's nice to make lots of monies and sell all those items but honestly it's not stopping you progressing. It's not holding anyone back. I'd rather not have a feature like the auction house for a while than find I can't even play the game, or couldn't get past a certain level, or couldn't go into a certain zone, or can't group up, or can't run dungeons etc etc etc. On the problem scale, it's not a huge problem.

    It's annoying yes, but they are trying to fix it, so all we can do is wait. Getting angry will do nothing.
    Games should start using their official forums to report stuff, not a social network site.

    I don't play the game actively, but you really have to be patient during a launch that GW2 is. It's a major game, and there's bound to be errors that might take time to fix. Just be patient.

    The diablo AH worked at least with a few hours of down time and the one day when it wasn't sending/receiving.

    This AH hasn't worked ever?


    Also, it's ok to fail because another game had some issues? That's a poor development mentality.

    Yesterday we opened the Trading Post for a random, rotating 50% of users. After gathering data from yesterday's tests, we applied a number of fixes and performance improvements, and are preparing a larger-scale test today.
    Just so y'all know...

    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 not a huge AH person, but this is starting to frustrate me. I've got 3 REALLY good greens just wasting away in my bank that I can't use. I'm half tempted to hunt down one more and toss 'em in the mystic forge or buy a good salvage kit and scrap 'em.

    Just as with other little errors, I do hope that all this time is being used so that when they come back up -- its for good.

    It'd be nice if they could keep it up. When it was up for a while I browsed it and I gotta say: it's incredibly primitive and needs some serious refining while they're at it.

    True. The search filters suck and typing in the exact name of the item you want in search comes up with results you ask for but also tons of results you don't ask for.

    Why exactly did they have Beta Weekends and Stresstests if they test the Auction House now? Really professional.

    I'm not someone who "plays the AH," but I do like to use it on other games from time to time to make a bit extra $$$.... but even I'm starting to get annoyed with it not being up :S
