    I build trading systems in real life...the whole "buy order", "sell order", "partial fill" malarky is actually how it's done. All we need is order types (fill or kill, stop, limit and so on) and it'll be a decent trading sim. It's excellent to see this kinda thing in the game.

    Where could you access the trading post when on the road? I know you could list it by right clicking, but what about buying?

    Opening the commerce tab. (gem button, top left. Also O key by default.)
    Don't think you could buy and have, think you had to go to a trading post NPC to actually pick up items you had bought.

    Yeah, same for getting your gold for selling something. You need to pick up gold collected from sales and items you've bought at a trading post.

    Yeah, but it's not like getting to the trading posts were difficult with waypoints

    Not sure why that could be, mail is supposed to be instant.

    Would be fun if there was a minimal chance for getting a sick or fat mailcarrier-bird to carry your mail, making it go slower.

    This may sound extremely silly, but were you checking your mailbox as soon as it was sent?
    I noticed that the actual mail icon was not telling me that I had mail if someone in my party and nearby sent it, it seemed that the game figured I knew that the person there was sending me mail and didn't have to remind me.
    Not sure why that's the case, and it is most likely a bug.

    In that case, I shall just blame my roommate, ha!

    So, I keep having this nagging feeling that something was missing about the ranger profession, and that some other profession would be more my playstyle, but I don't know which one that would be, and I had to be level 15 to get a true feeling about the profession, and if my little sister hadn't had her birthday party on Saturday, I might have gotten 2 profession up in these levels. Is there anyone who found a fast way to "test" if you liked the feel of the profession?

    the "Auction House" feature is just AWFUL. it makes GTN look good, in comparison.

    I don't know what GTN is and frankly I don't care.. but please go play your anime grinding game and leave us to our game.

    lol, did i touch something wrong, did i hurt your feelings.

    i just pointed out that there's one feature in this game that sucks, you dont agree then cry me a river

    Just from watching vids of how it works it looks like one of the best trading systems I've seen in a game...

    ...why do you think it's awful? It seems to have the best features of eve, plus more, and all kinds of handy market analysis and easy to use and time saving features (that for example wow had to rely on addons to deliver)

    yeah it sounded good on the videos until i had a go with it, i hope its not its last iteration and they chnage it to be more streamline, all i can say is try yourself.

    in all MMO's i've played over the last 10years, the AH is were i spend most of my time, gw2 is just not good enough.

    i love the statistic part of it, i really do, but the rest is not what i would expect from a 2012 MMO.

    Rest of the game lives up to the hype to be perfectly honest, but not the trader

    Worldwide market with a buy order system AS WELL AS a very good and convenient bid system, that you can use anywhere in the game world?
    I don't know. Took me all of .5 seconds to figure out and use properly.
    I'd love a description of what you mean by it needing to be 'more streamline', I can't think of a better MMO market from any MMO I've personally played. (I have not played EVE. Have heard amazing things about their market, but have not personally played.)

    No you posted some nonsense without specifying what exactly gripe you had it, basically you seem like a whiner, and then you used acronyms which I suppose most people have no idea about as your only example.

    So basically you aren't really spending your time actually playing the game, why don't you play some stock market simulation game instead?

    [/COLOR]for your information, i actually sent a very long feedback post to the people that matter, and you clearly are not one them, and i dont have to explain myself to you.

    Please don't call others fanboys (even through pictures). Infracted. -Edge

    I thought the AH was very easy to use. The option to "place a order" and have someone fill it was amazing. All in all i thought the game was a ton of fun. Cant wait til next beta to see where they go with everything.

    I'm sure you're right.
    We're completely illogical fanboys for asking why you think something isn't "streamlined" enough when you gave absolutely no reason why and no one else had complaints about it. (From what I've seen. I've heard nothing but praise for the marketplace, and have nothing but praise for it from using it.)

    Not being streamlined enough would generally mean that a feature somewhere was hard to use, correct?
    If you're the only one complaining about it, perhaps you were just unable to figure out how to use it properly and requesting the help of someone in local chat would have been a better alternative to bashing?
