I know, Negative Nancy posts something about this game again.

But seriously, this has got to be the single worst suggestion I've ever heard.

HAY! Let's make buying and selling goods determined via random number generation AND skill grinding!

I literally facepalmed so hard, I think I broke a few bones...

Edit:

On the other side, I am going to try out this game one more time to see if I feel any differently about it.

If I wanted to kill off my MMO for good, that's what I'd implement.

Don't even joke. Seriously.

I mean, could you IMAGINE!

"Oh hey, Sethern, what are you up to?"
"Well Pawk, I'm buying a bunch of logs."
"But aren't you into Alchemy?"
"Yea, but I gotta grind up my Buyer skill so that I don't keep getting robbed blind by bad rolls."

More like, "hey let me check my mailbox/buyer NPC to see if he got anything for me today! Alright he got me those lightning shards I was looking for! For 100,000 gil a piece. Oh. *hangs self*"

My gosh, that is the worst suggestion I have ever heard. It basically just makes two AH-camping bots that stagger through retainers for you... and this solution says openly that it could still take a lot of time before a particular item is found.

I won;t bother to go into further detail; the "great retainer fix" is so bad that it would take more time to undo each terrible part than I am willing, at this time, to give.

Thanks for making me all riled before bed, Pawk. XD

Wow, what a horrible idea. How did they honestly think RANDOMIZING how much you buy and sell for is a good idea. The last thing this game needs is MORE random variables. I'm actually stunned that the admins/mods/whatever at Eorzeapedia would release this thinking it was a good idea. Imagine this in real life... I want to buy something, someone else is selling it and rather than buy it for that price, I randomly roll a dice to determine how much I pay. Oh, lets not forget I can't back out if that price isn't ok for me. Good lord.

They could do that.... or they could just give us as search function. I know which one I'd prefer.

It's pretty bad, but I don't think it's the worst I thing imaginable.

I know SE won't bother with this, though, because it defeats the purpose of a "player run economy" and we all know how SE likes to fluff their brag sheet.

Example:
50% of the world wants regional servers, maybe 20% really liked "JP ONRY" search comments when they were looking for a party so they thought it would be fun to do all over again in a new game, and the other 30% was indifferent but SE was like "We are the only game series ever to have an auto-translator! We are the best programmers in the world!"
