Since contracts now have a written as well as numerical value, markets should as well be controlled somewhat to let the buyer have a clear view of what they are purchasing.

Please either:


A.) Limit the market to disallow people to increase the regional price of an item above 100x its normal value. I.E. an item is 500K, somenoe puts multiple sell orders up at 500,000,000 and thus hit above the marker and are thus not allowed.

(this could get more specific / complicated)


B.) Add a similar system to market orders as are in contracts to allow the person a written and numerical value to judge by.


C.)? Suggest below

D.) Teach people that they should read things before clicking on them so that when they epic-fail hardcore in a game, they learn they should read the fine print carefully. Then hopefully they should learn this is a fact in real life contracts too.

As a result, people learn to be smarter in real life too and we all benefit in the long run. One day they'll remember how they got scammed in an online game and lost a ton of virtual money, and read real life contracts more carefully.

A valuable lesson indeed.

So you have a habit of not reading fine print carefully? That is so nice, do you want me to sell you a half-brick... er, a house?

Or you just go to the market settings and configure it properly. not supported scamming is part of the game and stupidity should be punished.

CCP has no obligation to protect people from their own incompetence or lack of common sense.

Caveat emptor.

Fine-print??? The only thing you have to look at the market is item's price. If you fail to do that you deserve to be punished for it.

A) You really don't see how this could be easily exploitable?Rolling Eyes
B) Sure.. something like: this item costs "one billion two hundred and twenty five million nine hundred seventy eight thousand three hundred and twenty four point eighty two ISK"... I see how this can be very helpful.

Not supported.
