I guess this is the closest forum we have to anything regarding the economy. I tried putting this in the general discussion thread but it was, of course, buried onto page two from whining threads within a minute.

Anyway...

We need more Galactic Trade Network kiosks placed throughout the game world. There simply are not enough of them. I should not have to get into my ship and fly to another planet just to use one of these terminals. It's Star Wars, the holonet is everywhere. Even on the most backwater planets of all.

At the very least there should be one near every taxi terminal.

i agree! the market suffers enough as it is, and forcing players to find the GTN (if it's even available at your planet.. looking at you alderaan!) just makes it that much worse. fixing the GTN and making it more accessible to everyone is one of the most important things that needs to be implemented, in my not at all humble opinion.

I think they had a GTN on every planet in beta. I know for a fact they had crafting trainers on all the planets.

If you could choose 3 places where to add a GTN for your faction, which would those be?

Wherever there's a market? That's a good bare minimum. Where there's a taxi is more of an upper maximum of where you can put them and not be completely ridiculous. It's still a good idea, though.

Actually, I want a gtn some where else other than on the main station. It gets so laggy in there due to comp lag and normal internet lag. It's like ogrimmar on Illidan, but you can always go to the back ah and avoid 100-150 people by the front ah in wow. I can imagine just going to the gtn terminals is a real problem for people with not so great computers or internet.

That's why you always see at least some people in silvermoon due lag free and easy on the comp for the ah browsing in wow.

Sometimes I log on my alt just to brows GTN on Imperial Station.
Might make another alt to keep an eye on GTN on Nar Shadaa.

Bioware wants you to visit the fleet by removing GTN in other planets. This is also to make up for their lack of global LFG channel or LFG tool.

They need to make it easier to get there and then back to where we're questing then.

Run to spaceyard, get into shuttle, fly to spacestation, run to personal spaceship, fly to Fleet, run to GTN

That's a massive chunk of time.
