ha I have seen this in game. The trade network on nar shaddaa is called the Hutt Cartel Trade Network and has alot less then the Trade Network in the fleet.

The AH is awful. Why would you want to make a market more difficult to sell in? With so many MMO's out there, how you managed to implement a system 5-10 years behind everyone else I can't fathom.

Just don't implement item bidding.

Good for sellers, but as a buyer I loath it.

The Auction house has major issues with it

1) as everyone has said before the lack of a simple search feature and a long drawn out complicated drop down box is pissing everyone who uses this off.

2) Default settings do not exist, if i want to put in a 12 hour sale, the very next item is going to be defaulted back to 1 day, and there is no feature to remember prices, so if i put in an item for 2k credits the next item which is identical to the first, i have to re-enter the price.

Mainly because of having to go through page after page of greens to find a good item just to have my companion come back and close the whole window.

i just want them to be universal across all planets, and i want each planet to have at least one kiosk. i hate having to travel to certain planets to sell items.

also, what would happen if it were cross-server? that way more stuff would be available, and more people would be buyers to items you're trying to sell.
i understand that this would make it overwhelming as to how much stuff is available, and how hard it would be to find what ou're looking for. but i'm sure there are ways they could combat this. putting in a search filter for example, as some have stated above.

another thing, why does it have to be in-house only? why can't a republic player sell an item to an imp and vice versa?

I spend a lot of my playing time with galactic network in mind, so I sure hope its functionality is improved. Currently, it is painful to use. Being able to search by armor slots would help a lot, and being able to filter type of gifts would also be huge for me.

Majorly improvements are badly needed. It is painful and annoying to use in its current beta state.

ok first don't encourage plagiarism. not everything should be like the thing before.

You see the price you like the price you buy it simple. Auction Houses are a pain in the backside and need to be left out of the game. This MMO has the ability to have a really market involved not some rip off from WOW.

If you want AH's in your game go back to WoW.
seems like the first guy I qouted was asking to go back to wow.

Seriously plagiarism is wrong quit stealing from others and quit telling people to do so.
and seriously this person is asking to be told to go back to wow, wow is awesome statements are asking for it.

The lack of usability in the auction house is easily the largest contributing factor in the frustration surrounding crew skills. If people cannot buy & sell materials and crafted items effectively, crew skills will continue to be underwhelming.

"Just wait for the economy to get off the ground." How many times have you seen that statement in these forums? If nobody can/wants to use the GTN, the in-game economy will NEVER get off the ground.
