My reason for this discussion is to clear peoples minds about not having an auction house and to support developers in never creating one for FFXIV. it will simply ruin the game. there are other solutions to peoples headaches on not being able to find mats for crafting.
We see thousands of unused items on FFXI's auction house. My experience with FFXIV over the last month has made me a better player without it.
It has made the game more interactive and real to me. I have seen a beautiful variety of players all expressing more individuality than could ever be created with FFXI or any other popular MMORPG.
The biggest complaint i see on forums is there is no place to dump crafted items or get materials to keep crafting.
This can be solved by just selling all materials
at a NPC.
I firmly believe an auction house will ruin this game. I love searching for gear in crafters bazaars. its given the game more variety and individuality. Auction houses will only make the game.. the same as FFXI. This is the future and auction houses will only set you back.
Also i think an auction house takes control away from the developers. These people dont know anything about economy.
Example.. you let them make the economy on FFXI..
Then they ******* and complained about it...
But they did it to themselves!!
By selling crafting materials at NPC's..
the developers keep control.!!
If you dont like it. then go play WoW or FFXI for the rest of your life.
I like the game being more life like and putting everyone on the same level.
I like that no auction house makes people work harder.
I made a really good friend because i bought something out of her bazaar.
And that's when it all clicked for me. and i seen how much better this game is
Rayneblood > FFXI
Mojo Rysyn > FFXIV > the new masterpiece.
