In other news, it seems like ArenaNet has been watching the Trading Post very closely the last few weeks and have decided to take action! In an article by John Smith, he discusses problems and solutions for the Trading Post market. In response to the extreme surplus of selected items, for a limited time there will be new mystic forge recipes that give you the chance to gain some neat stuff!
That being said, the trading post had a rough start. As a fundamental piece of the game, we mobilized to get it fixed immediately. After about 100 hours of work in that first week our devs began to make some progress noticeable by the players. We’ve come a really long way in stabilizing the trading post and preparing it for the future and we’ll continue working on making the trading post a better experience.
One very interesting comment was about the extent of the cheap karma weapon exploits:
The problem was the 1.46 million weapons purchased by 4,862 players, which averages over 300 weapons per player.
I found this perhaps one of the most interesting articles this week. ArenaNet addresses the Trading Post problems and their reaction to exploits with professionalism iconic to ArenaNet. It’s great to know they’re always dealing with issues and keeping you informed!
As an added bonus, check out these cool statistics!
