Actually, Lorini, most serious auctioneers don't cancel undercut auctions. It's *far* easier to (say) craft 10 of each glyph, but only post 2-3 at a time. Then when you're undercut, post new glyphs at the lower price and let your old ones expire. This has the double benefit of reducing the amount of time spent running your AH game and backstopping the market in the event of a run on a particular glyph (sometimes people will buy 5+ of one if they're going to go back and forth for a raid or something, although that's rare).To your main point: yeah, I don't think there will be more botters in an absolute sense, but I think the botters will adapt and stick around while some of the non-bot competitors will leave.I am going to continue my theme from above as well: you're wrong when you say "Then the more casual player can still make a few gold from what's left." This change makes it LESS likely that a casual player will make gold. Think about it- you are apparently failing to make gold under a regime where it's easy to post and if you want, undercut and cancel glyphs. Why is making it harder for you to post suddenly going to magically make your life more profitable? Because I'm certainly not going to leave the market just because I had to adapt to the new AH regime. This change makes Glyphwar somewhat harder to play. The result of that will be the same amount of casual profit to be made in the AH (not much) and a slight increase in the price of glyphs, gems and so on as some people get discouraged and leave. Anyone who is used to dominating the market and wants to continue dominating, however, will adapt. So you'd better hope you're on the server where everybody decides to quit.That or, you'd better decide to be less casual in your approach to the AH. Then you can make some gold.
