Let's Discuss This League / Standard Trading Listing Feature

Why are you bumping this? Isn't this already fixed?

Players have to opt-in to be shown as online in all leagues. The default setting is to show them only in their current league.

The setting to change this can be found here.

important enough to switch chars for 30 secs then it's not important enough to continue being listed.


Unless there's something I'm missing, it's pretty PITA to switch chars for a trade.
Because as soon as I log to char select all record of who just whispered me vanish, so there's no way to know who I'm trying to whisper to in whatever league the char is on (unless you just happen to have eiditic memory or copy the initial whisper before changing chars).
Pretty cumbersome, to say the least.

People with flags should be eliminated from searches (AFK/DND/Offline) entirely. If they're in another league they should be filtered out (even if they have items listed in the league of the buyer).

Everyone with a sales setup tab should automatically get a built in trade macro - using one of the selected hideout characters (zana, einhar, ect). When a whisper comes in, this character handles the entire trade. They initiate a trade group (this does not appear to the seller). The buyer cannot access portals created by the seller, ect. Buyer places the appropriate currency in the trade window, HO character dumps listed item from stash, accept and done, trade group closed.

This requires prices to be set. Items worth haggling over can be haggled over without involving the HO character.

May need something in there to verify that the buyer is not a bot, tho...

To whisper the person who pm'd you, usually you or the other person would tell them to pm you again in 10 secs or so. That's one way, another is to do whatever copy / paste thing some people know how to do within in game. Lastly, there's always the chat log.

To use it, minimize the client, right click PoE and open file location. Then click the logs folder and open the log.text file. It's basically a entire log of your chats and whispers; from private to guild, to global and even trade. Open the log scroll to the very bottom (which is the most recent date/ time) and just highlight and copy the name. Then go back to in game and use Ctrl V

Bump. Wonder if this is in the new patch notes.

OP's links are locked.

Seems that GGG does not want to hear people dis their trashy trade system.


It's a top tier game, as far as it's genre goes, but it's consistently kept down because the trade system is pretty much the *worst* in the entire gaming industry.

I'm not espousing an 'auction house' style market (just look at Eve Online... 0.001% margins because of bots), but making it more streamlined would be a blessing and would see the number of users climb. Heck, people might be more willing to open their wallets, too!
More players = more customers.

System should work as follows:

Player chooses a HO toon to act as their seller.
Whisper comes in requesting to buy an item. System parses that whisper and takes over.
HO toon offers a trade party invite (which does not affect the seller's party, and does not give buyer access to any portals, ect). Buyer arrives, trade window opens. HO toon puts item into trade window, buyer puts in currency. Done, and done.

Scams: gone.

For non-priced items haggling can be done. If players want to haggle, they can put items in a sales tab the HO toon does not access - whispers concerning those items go to the player.
Bump. Man I hope the patch notes are including this.
