I am 100% on board with a market based trading system. And DE doesn't even have to remove anything, maybe just update maroo's bazaar to have a person that sells our items for a small fee. They even mentioned it at the last tennocon live stream. Someone asked about the trading market and someone on the panel said, in a very quick way, we will get to it eventually. Or something to that effect.
Edit: Oh, and I burned my dinner trying to secure a trade and then the person I was trading with found a better deal. Now because I couldn't just post an item and got distracted by the failed trade, I am out some potential plat, time, and most importantly, my mushroom risoto is burnt to a crisp. Kind of my fault for trading while cooking, but it's also DE's fault for not having a trade system yet. So yeah, rant is over. I will now be taking criticism in the form of an essay. Extra points for proper use of the word "hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia".
Note: The second half is a completely true event that was just a minor annoyance and written for the enjoyment of the reader and myself. My real problem is spending any amount of time sitting in front of a scrolling text box to trade when I can just have an npc do it for me. Don't remove the text trading for those that enjoy it and add a system that allows people that just want to play the game to trade for a lower price. I'm pretty sure that the market will take care of itself naturally. Maroo's bazaar is still thriving whenever I visit for my weekly hunts, so I don't see how that could be an issue. Oh well, I'm going to end it here. Happy hunting tenno, and thanks for reading this far if you have.
