If you cannot fix the exchange then remove the cap. Some items impossible to buy or sell with the cap. If you cannot remove the cap then add price filters.

So you want to make the Exchange problems worse? The system is already straining with the 400 Item limit...

Increasing the search result limit would be bad. Not only would it cause more server load, but going through 400 results is already a chore. The point of a search engine is to find what you're looking for, not spit out a huge list of junk for you to sort through manually.

To improve the ability to actually find things, there needs to be more and better ways to narrow down your search. Being able to filter doffs/boffs by faction would be a good start.

There are also still items that don't belong to any category, which makes them difficult to find since "All" doesn't work properly.

Part of the problems with the exchange is that too many players use the exchange as extra "storage" by posting items with exorbitant prices. And that can't really be fixed without charging a tax or fee for posting items on the exchange.

There are many ways around the "400 Cap". Have you messed with the selections on the left of the exchange window? If not, I suggest you do. There are many options which will show just what you are looking for.

Let me guess, you're the "A" guy who has "X" item posted for 10,000% more that "B" guy's "Y" item and you want to be able to see it on the exchange? Good luck selling that...

The prices on the exchange are all ready ridiculas Items are marked of 60% to 200% of the value.

So if anything the cap should be item based so you can't charge more that 25% the total value.

Its just dumb some guy will put a 8,000 dollar phaser up on the exchange for 200% of the actual cost.

So if anything change the cap so its item based.

How about instead of chomping on the guy selling for 200% you chomp on the guy buying it for 200%. I will gladly post anything 500% if there are people willing to pay it.

After all any economy is based on supply and demand.

Why? Just look at the logo behind their head before you buy. It tells you which faction they belong to. And FED and KDF can use each others doffs in some situations.
