The current auction house structure is borked beyond repair. It really needs to be completely revamped. How they managed to make it worse than vanilla WoW's, I'll never know. And economy is an integral part of an MMO - and it could be improved so much with so little, that I have to ask myself what the hell they were thinking.
Also, is there any solid reasoning why the auction houses aren't cross-faction? Intergalactic Commerce picks sides, now?
It is not an Auction House, it has never been an Auction House - pet peave love of Star Wars the story and universe should always come first. I could really care less about MMO's and how this game compares.
