I am pretty sure they are aware of most things that are either absent or have yet to be implemented and they have a reason for each. But regardless, this is something that needs to be said. At least some communication on their part would help, that is something that came standard in WoW (albeit brief and uninformative most of the time). Add that to the list, communicating with their customers.

No, it's not a fact. Plenty of MMOs have forced people off of servers and onto others.

This This This This This!

My God the AH in this game is not even annoying, it's provocatively infuriating. I just want to place items in the item box, and then search for every similar item on the AH. I don't want to have to go through several scroll menus and even then be denied my Name Search (like is the case with Stims).

It's gotten so far that I'm not even researching the price of other items on the AH. I'm just posting them for the advised price. No idea how that one gets determined, I assume items posted have sth to do with it, but it's a purebred pain in the effin a.

Group PvP and not disbanding my group everytime when start/finish.

Much more guild options that are to numerous to mention.

Macros, macros, macros.
Macros are a detriment to the game. Everything else you mentioned seems trivial at best...

Masta-Blasta - Vanguard

Sindorin - Assassin

Try going to the GTN with 20 different items you'd wish to sell. If you're going to research the prices of your competitors, which any sane individual would, you're easily occupied for half an hour.

It's tedious, far too tedious for something as mundane as this.

Bioware was told multiple times throughout beta about the horrible auction house and completely ignored it. Its screwed up because it either wasnt a priority (how could it not be) or they simply ignored feedback. Either way the auction house sucks and it probably wont be fixed.

Actually I hope they leave this. It is perfectly functional as it is for people looking to buy something...what this does is prevent resellers from simply mass searching for cheap items to rip others off with by reposting at a higher price. Sure they can search by category, but it will take more time.

If you like playing economic strategy games, go and do that. Gets old hearing "that is how I like to play" being thrown around as an excuse for abusing the system and ripping other players off.

And no, I don't care about free market theories, it is a game, and players should have enough respect for each other to not engage in this type of BS.
