I don't know, all you have to do to sell something for a million is press 1 and then count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 as you press the zero button. It's not rocket science but, then again, you'd think putting in comma's wouldn't be either.

That doesn't solve the problem when you're selling via the in-game trading interface.
They are planning to beta test the punctuation for trade window and AH listings, to see if we need commas, or dots apparently.

Please don't ask for commas. This feature is so complicated to implement it might delay the expansion by another year.


hahahahahah
I think you already get a "coma" from grinding A1, A2, A3 for leg drops that will never come....

Oh wait sorry different subject...yeah add flippin' commas already! Not at the expense of extending RoS release though plox

Act 1 runs with MP10 at 90+ P level with group of 4 x 1m + edps players and I get 2-6 legs per hour, however the sellability / usability factor is ZERO.

Lots of poop is still poop, sadly.
[1] [000] [000] [000]
B.....M......T......O

More universal than commas.

Ok, so now we have -

Commas 1,000,000,000
Dots 1.000.000.000
Brackets {1}{000}{000}{000}


Mmmm, think I prefer dots personally, but commas also acceptable.

So many ways to do this, even without the need to care about localization:

1'000'000'000
1 000 000 000

Guess they are having daily expert meetings if they should use this version:

1♥000♥000♥000

Hey man...I used the right "their". Gotta give me some credit

True.

Don't act like you never seen someone type "iono" for "I don't know"

Actually for me this was a first, though I am an Englishman.

Just wondering if there are any plans on putting commas in the expansion? People have been getting ripped off for over a year now and Blizz doesn't seem too concerned about it. I'm sure many will buy the expansion even for the sole purpose of the almighty "comma". Please Blizz shed some light over yonder :/
We certainly agree that the lack of commas in both player trade windows and the Auction House is not ideal and that is can lead to some very bad experiences for players, and it's something we intend to change. We have concrete plans to do this, and it's something that is likely to coincide with other changes relating to the Auction House and itemization.
Typical Blizzard, catering to casuals. l2countnumbers yeesh...

I'd like to know when game developers will stop pandering to the lowest common denominator, and start expecting their players to accept a little bit of personal responsibility for their own actions?

Commas seem like such an unnecessary (albeit insignificant in terms of development cost, I'm sure) "fix".
Stop using zeros. You dont have to trade for exactly x bil gold. Problem solved.
