I just thought it might be an awesome idea to have an trading app that syncronizes with your warframe account. There are all sorts of way's of identifying yourself as the real owner of the warframe account. This could really help people out trying to sell stuff and buy stuff. I would suggest that it does not actually count as a daily log in since you're not physically in the game. I am certainly no engineer and have absolutly no clue about the difficulties of making this kind of app.
You could even impliment sections where , if a player clicks your ingame name, they can see your WTB - WTS list. I have no doubt that there are many holes in this plan of mine, but that's where community work comes in.
If anyone ever reads this, you're awesome and will probably tell me there is a thread like this already somewhere.
In my opinion an auction system would slow things even more down and make stuff more complicated than it has to be. Because if it would work with a minimum set price, then all the prices for tradeable items will go up and people would soon abandon auctions. On the other hand if you don't set a minimum price you'd most likely get way less than the price you'd like to get.
The trading system right now is not so much broken, it's more that it is inefficient. An app like suggested could make it easier for people to sell and buy. You could even make seperate tabs for WTS - WTB and WTT. Because nothing is more annoying than expecting some plat only for the other to say "ooww I have no plat"
look, an auction house would be great, we have seen it work with plenty of other games, you say that prices would sky rocket, maybe, at first, but when people realize and see all the high prices, they in turn will change the price lower so they are more likely to get it sold, this is a great system, because rather than having to hunt people down that want the item, then having to haggle with them (which lets face it no one ever does any more) then finally you might get what your looking for. This auction system will level itself out just like any kinda selling commodity, us gamers have seen it work. If DE is trying to put restrictions, fine, make an auction house that limits just how much you can put up for auction. I'd much rather have a leave and forget system, rather than spending my gaming time trying to sell something.
I think a trading website would be best sort of like they do with rocket league you don't log into your account you just post the stuff you want to trade or sell with your own psn name attached to it and the trade will stay open for like a week or until the owner of said trade closes it
Warframe Market is good for setting up trades, but you can't do the actually trade there. Making a tradig app, where players can actually trade, wouldn't be very difficult to make. DE has already made an app that allows you to interact with certain parts of the game, like you can turn some resources and blueprints into prime parts. You "lose" some resources and blueprints, but you "get" a finished part. For this reason, I don't think it would be very difficult to make a trading app.
Trading channel in game is totally inefficient and 8 believe everyone agrees with that. The reason for that is there are too many players to text in the same channel which most of the time you just miss what you want to buy or sell. The warframe market app is good but it would be much better to have an official app similar to that. I don't like the idea of auction house whether it is an app or website after the experience of the auction house in Diablo3. It is ridiculous to sit in front of the app to battle the bid with other players at last minute. The way how Warframe Market works is fine. It just lacks of players using it since it is not official.
