You've spent this entire thread implying that an economy can't be properly established in this game with the market wards, and that only an AH could alleviate that problem, as shown in these two quotes. Implying is just as bad as actually saying it.
No, I haven't spent the entire thread implying any such thing. I've barely posted in this thread, and the only thing I've been "implying" is that the Market Wards are inferior to an AH.
The fact that most people say the market wards are good enough to hold out for an AH until AFTER content says enough. You're the one choosing not to see that, and that's your own fault.
What does this have to do with the Market Wards being relatively bad compared to an AH? Of course people are dealing with it. I'm one of those people, but that has nothing to do with what I've said in EVERY single post on this thread. The Market Wards are an INFERIOR SYSTEM. The whole reason I responded to this thread was because someone said the Market Wards were a good thing because they were "new" and "innovative." I responded because thinking something is new and innovative has nothing to do with how useful it is, especially when it is arguably a step backward from FFXI, and since then I have been arguing that the Market Wards are inferior to an AH. Or if you want me to use the same terms I used earlier, the Market Wards do a "relatively bad job compared to an AH."
I'm not sure how people willing to put up with the market wards until more content says otherwise. In fact it still shows an AH is wanted, just not right now, which doesn't contradict anything I've said.
I'm willing to bet that the only "other games" you've played were FFXI and WoW. Otherwise, you wouldn't make such asinine comments like this.
I've also played DDO. I hardly see how this makes a difference. It was simply easier to buy and sell in all three games. I'd be fine without an AH specifically, but they need a more centralized system that has good search functionality. Even if there is no price history.
Exaggerating details, stating things as fact when they're far from it, just to try to prove your point? You're the one building the straw man.
You can misrepresent what I've said and claim to know what I'm implying all you want. It doesn't make it true.
But what have I exaggerated and stated as fact? That an AH is a better system than the Market Wards? What's the point of a Market System? To buy an sell in game commodities. Are you really willing to say the Market Wards do this better than an AH? That's essentially all I've said, along with talking about how much time I spend searching for items, which is hardly an exaggeration. I probably spend more time obtaining materials than I actually spend crafting.
