Ok so 2 things that i immediately noticed the very first time i looked at the Exchange:
1. There is no confirm purchase prompt when you buy something. That is a huge oversight, so look out ppl.
2. Clicking the "Toggle Category" button could buy a weapon. If you click on an actual weapon it changes to "Purchase Listing", as it should. The problem is that if you click on a weapon category (from pistols to assault rifles in this example), it changes back to "Toggle Category" but the weapon on the top of the list is selected automatically and clicking the button buys/could buy it.
(I bought a gun accidentally and this is my theory as to how it happened. I have not confirmed this with testing and not willing to try.)
This needs to be fixed asap.

I'm making a small fortune off the exchange. It just goes to show you how weak scrip's value is.

I scroll through it with just my left hand you know so I don't accidentally purchase something.

The listing is just as bad.... people listing before adding price. A lot is selling for 12400 scrip. A rather expensive learning curve for some people.

I cannot believe a confirmation system is not in place. I am sure that it was brought up in pts. For this feature to go live like this..... I just have to shake my head.

*edit .. on another thread Kiwi assures us that a confirmation system is going to be implemented.

Yes if you select toggle in this way you purchase weapon.

I just hope you didn't loose (too much) scrip confirming this.
I'm staying away from The Exchange for now.

I logged in because this update sounded neat. I've played for years.

I was switching around the categories and somehow that caused the purchase of a 2.5million scrip mod, a t4 Heartbreaker mod I already had.

I put in a ticket.

Here is the response:

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us regarding Defiance. Unfortunately, we're unable to assist with your request. I apologize for the inconvenience, as we try to make every effort to correct any issue our players may have.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know. Thank you for your continued support of Trion Worlds and for playing Defiance.

Your reference number for this ticket is 626240.

Sincerely,

Senior GM Soulwalker

Trion Worlds Inc

Pretty sure I have to quit playing forever. I had 3.2 million when I logged in, browsed the exchange, lost 2.5 million on a single stupid item.

Peace, Defiance.

Yeah, bugs... but we pay for them, just got myself an "little helper" for 4.5 mil scrip after hitting "toggle category" button.
