I do agree where it's not convienent that you have to go through the categories everytime~ I don't mind only having the buyout options though, since i don't think much people will just stare at GTN and place their bids. Anyone I still feel the need of improving the AH =).

This is a major problem obviously. I cannot afford to post items for sale and have them VAPORIZED if they fail to sell.

But they REALLY need to make the GTN more user friendly. What we have now is a train wreck.

I had three such expired listings this AM. I hoped perhaps if I took the deposit out it would throw the item into my inventory or something, but it didn't (inventory was empty except for a few medpacks). After trying that twice I left the third one just as I received it and submitted a ticket to investigate.

I'm not upset, hiccups in a new MMO are expected, but obviously I will not be using the trade network under these circumstances. It is *broken*.
Great Warrior? Wahaha! Wars not make one great.

Make things searchable PLEASE! It helps both sellers and buyers. If I know I'm buying 'Alien Blood' just let me search for it instead of looking at the other Biomed ingredients. And if I'm trying to sell 'Alien Blood' I'd like to know the going rate quickly so I can get my auction up.

And PLEASE make another filter (yes) for armor slots.. If I'm looking for an upgrade to my gloves only why would I want to plod through pages and pages of helmets, pants, bracers, and chestpieces??? Let me see all of one type of slot so I can compare stats, prices, etc. Of all the filters to leave out this one makes no sense.

Oh and I forgot that the email/letter you get telling you you sold an item should TELL YOU WHAT YOU SOLD! If you don't remember specifically what prices you set for multiple auctions then you don't have a clue which items you sold (and thus don't know you might have to 're-stock' that item) as it currently just says "Your auction was succesful, here's X credits."

Agree with the OP. This is, by far, the worst part of the game for me so far.

This game deserves a decent AH.

Why not look at what players really want by looking at the Mod-community in other MMO's? I would log much more gametime if there was an auctioneer(=WoW-mod)-like market system.

Just look at the amount of players around every auction house in every other MMO, and then tell me we don't need it in SWTOR.

My optimistic wait-and-see approach to the issues with the game kind of fall apart when it comes to the GTN. Can't understand how it got released in its current form.

The game economy will be crappy if the GTN interface doesnt get improved. And i seriously hope they are not regional if they are that needs to be fixed in the first major patch which i expect to be within 3 weeks.
As odd as it might seem the GTN interface and a game economy that isn't terrible is a deal breaker for me and I won't be subbing if it is not fixed.
