Ever since i started playing this game the exchange has been broken.

its worse than ever now, I cant even sell doffs since i can post them and they dont show up on searches therefore they will NEVER sell.

It cant be that hard to get it right surely? I mean, there's umpteen games out there with exchanges, that work flawlessly.

Oh wait, if theres nothing on the exchange, we gotta buy stuff from c-store

Wow, never noticed it was this messed up. I wondered what the hell you were on about. Knew it was messed up awhile ago.

I Thought it was just the 'All' tab that didn't show old posted items? Used all to sell a tac console but then looked under the tac console tab and I was selling too high. Did the same with mystery box and I sold way too cheap. This has been going on since F2P hasn't it? or was shortly after. All I can do to show my disappointment is cancel my subscription and not buy anything with actual money... oh done that already, month after F2P launch.

So please clarify DEVS. If I post anything now it will just be listed under the specific tab and not all?? That seems to be how it is working on my computer but who knows right?

Wow. I am on this bandwagon. I dragged mk XI Green Tac console and lowest that showed was MK XI blue... then did 'All' search (same results), then went to tac tab..totally different results.... lowest was mk xi common.,.... I did not change any of the drop down menus.

Dealing from experience, posted DOffs will eventually be cycled into the search as the old ones sell off or get returned. Usually a day or two is all it takes to cycle in and get sold if it's priced decently.

Unfortumately the Exchange has a limit of 400 results per search too; so if your item is at the 401 spot (depending on the search arameters you use); you won't see it listed. That's a limit I wish they would find a way to increase.

I havent had this issue for the last 2 months since I've joined, but lately its been bugging up constantly and I havent sold anything due to the items not showing up in seaches...


For a game of this age, these bugs and poor design choices shouldnt show up at all. At best I can accept if the issue was the before mentioned limitations of the exchange systems, considering we proberly are many more new players now. But still this shouldnt take so bloody long to fix...

I have put them up as the cheapest, guaranteeing they should be the first thing someone sees when pressing the search button.

They still dont show up. Unless you search for the doff by it's actual name (bob, joe, rita, sue - whatever)

searching by name is fine for a console, or weapon I can live with that, and I have been (no choice really lol).

But for Doffs, it doesnt work like that.

Be honest, unless you want a specific Doff for a specialised task - eg; you want the Doff named "UGLY" for the tulaberry replication (yes - honest to God, there is an actual Doff named Ugly), then the chances are, that you're just going to do a search with the text entry field blank and just the type of doff you need selected from the list and the quality you desire, to maximise your choice of available doffs.

You arent going to search for one by name...

Therefore this is a major problem when you put your Doffs up to sell for the cheapest amount according to the searches you ran before putting them up for sale.
Heck you should all be getting annoyed too, because if I'm putting stuff up cheaper than the results on the search and they arent showing up, then youre paying over the odds for something you could have had cheaper!

After Season 6, it's broken again. At least it is for me.

Yep, it is broken as sold items are still showing in the search results. I have raised a ticket about this problem and recieved a reply from PWE stating their support team don't know what the issue is and to keep an eye on these forums. All we can do is wait.
