I searched for this request but didn’t see it, so thought I’d throw this out there for widespread internet spaceship pew pew game opinions… and perhaps even an answer from a dev
Now that players can have their own markets, and since market order limits haven’t been visited in many years I would like to suggest that CCP add a new Trade skill (name of skill is open to suggestions) that raises the limit of active orders by 64 per level, giving a new max open order limit of 625 for a max skilled toon.
I’ve often run into situations over the years where I’m maxed out on open orders on multiple toons and I’ve dealt with it because there was little advantage to having more than 305 orders on a toon with NPC markets, but now that player markets have opened up a whole new style of gameplay for marketers, I’m hitting my max limit pretty much constantly. An additional skill to raise the limit to 625 would double current marketers capacity for market orders and allow for even more interesting gameplay using player markets in New Eden. And 64 per level is the natural progression of the 4, 8, 16 and 32 per level raising of the current Trade skills.
The current alternative is to just train up additional toons, of course, which I know CCP probably loves, of course, which is part and parcel why I’ve never brought this up before now, of course. lol. But, this seems like it now fits as a natural progression of feature parity with the introduction of player markets, so figured I’d throw it against the hull and see if it sticks!
Anyone else running into this problem, or is it just me?
- Smaller corporations and individual marketers will have more capacity to trade in player owned markets
- Corporations and alliances that own their own market(s) will have more capacity to stock those markets for their alliance and corporation members (low and nullsec primarily)
- The goons (and other large alliances) will have additional capacity for more market presence in the NPC hubs.
Any downsides players can envision for expanding the Trade skills and raising the limit of active orders that I’m just not thinking about in making this request?
Thanks and sorry if this has been raised and/or answered before and I just didn’t find it in my search. Surely I’m not the first lol… but my search foo is failing me in the new forums, almost as badly as it did in the old ones.
