Worst auction house since Everquest where you had to stay logged in and in a certain zone.

If there is no bidding, it is not an AH. It is a sales kiosk, much akin to the bazaar in EQ.

So true!!!
The windows management is the worst part of the UI - and that's saying a LOT!!!!
This "feature" has annoyed me countless times already.

If there was a simple search feature it would do wonders for the system. If they would just copy that other big mmos auction house system everything would be better.

Badly needs a shift/click item name only search. Stop with the required fields. PLEASE give us a useful GTN! This is horrible.

A more direct search interface woukld b a good improvement.Also would b nice if the crew skill window can remain open while u browse thru the gtn. Alsi linking items just does not work well

This has probably been said, but I don't have time to sift through 10 pages, so I will be brief and generally give my support:

Besides the lack of refined search tools, it is VERY frustrating that:

1. There are not GTN terminals in every major starport; thus making it less of an incentive for leveling players to purchase crafted goods.

2. The Neutral (Nar Shadda) and Imperial & Rebel GTN's are not linked.

These and other things work to make it unnecessarily more difficult for crafters to sell goods and pay for grinding.

please fix this. in other MMOs, i have always taken enjoyment in manipulating the economy. it is far too painful in this game to engage in such an endeavor. at the very least, have a search function, and the ability to shift click an item and see its related market data.

I agree the design of the GTN is absolutely appalling. It doesn't need to be fixed, it needs to be scrapped and redesigned from scratch. For a game that copied everything from WoW to the nth degree, it would have been nice if they copied WoW's auction house with the functionality provided by the Auctioneer mod.

Creating an interface that requires you to search through hundreds of items displayed with a tiny, illegible font only to be interrupted by your comps returning from missions and forcing you to go through the whole grueling process again shows a stunning lack of common sense on Bioware's part.

This never should have made it past the drawing board let alone through Beta and into the Release.
