But then again, I don't really quite get how scammers win... but I guess I've been given slightly more intelligence than a football.

The advertise a price to good to resist. or they put the item name in the description as a lot of people search by description instead of item type.

I have a hard time following the logic of those nerdraging about this. Replacing a difficult UI that's hard to understand for noobs and easy to manipulate with the normal market feature.......

The change this could bring to jita local alone is enough to motivate a move to the market.

Caving in to the doubtless large number of players who fall for Jita ship contract scams and then go crying to the petition window. Maybe this will net a faster turnaround on GM petitions after the patch? Laughing


If you're foolish enough to think that ship contract scams will be eliminated by making the item available available on the market then I have a Carbon^H^H^H^H^Hharon on contracts for quick sale.

Confirmed, CCP has just ruined the faction ship market. Good job. Well that was my last straw. I am on my way out CCP. Thank you for a good experience while it lasted until you started ****ing up. You need to check with the player base before you do **** like this.

Contracts can be good for some stuff but why faction items have to go through contracts has always been and will remain a mystery to me.

I agree completely, this is a good and welcome change. Taking mundane things out of contracts is a good thing.

I'm hoping they keep faction items on contacts at least for now,

I sell faction items via contract, and I hope everything ends up on the market. All the whining is massively short sighted - faction items are appealing and underused, and the contract system is a major reason for that.

Only the most educated players right now are going to search for say a Republic Fleet 1MN Afterburner, but if all the faction afterburners were on the market, a player could learn 1) what the item was, 2) how it compared to all the other afterburners, and 3) easily purchase it in a 'safe' manner. I could expect much more business from people searching the market than I currently get from people randomly entering the exact item name I'm selling into the contract search box. And since supply is far more static than demand, I would expect a price increase.

I just wish it was for mods too, but that's the likely next step.

Exactly. "This constrained, unartful delivery system really helps me sell things! Really! My profits rely on only the most dedicated and informed players even knowing my product exists."

Or my favorite, "once more people have convenient access to these products of limited supply, prices will surely drop!"
