Why don't you guys just make only awakened classes can use ah so we don't have this time restriction any class that is awakened can freely use the ah but those that are not awakened will get some error message.
Pepi Oranski There are better methods that would leave the AH open but still prevent botting/gold buying. One problem with limiting the AH is limiting the money people can make which could potentially lead to someoen resorting to gold buying. There simply needs to be a better solution. You guys are easily my favorite gaming company thus far.
You interact and take suggestions from your players.
You take drastic actions when needed.
The materials is the best part of this. That's 80% of the reason I ever came to the AH. The problem with what you guys are doing si you're trying to STOP DFO Gold sellers. Unfortunately, people are too greedy and manipulative. Every MMO I've been on with any kind of commerce or gold trading has ALWAYS had cheap DFO Gold sellers. Don't let them be the focus of your game. It's ok to slow them down but don't change your entire game just to focus on the group of negative people. Remember, your game won't be successful without a stream of new players along with the loyal fans.
That's why I sent some suggestions to them including setting/capping prices for tiems based on the Korean version; I figure such a thing would stifle goldbots, help remove the need to buy gold, and not drive players off. Most people playing the market game don't know how bad their prices look towards the average player who either don't know or don't care to play the market.
