  • What is your character name in New World: Grinte Loco
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Vourukasha
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: There is an inconsistent application of transaction tax in the Trading Post. Sell order writers pay UNDISCOUNTED transaction tax at the time their order is filled. Buyers filling sell orders ALSO pay discounted transaction tax. Buy order writers pay NO transaction tax, only the listing fee when writing their orders. Sellers filling buy orders receive sale proceeds reduced by their discounted transaction tax.
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: It’s not an exploit, and I don’t know if it’s a bug, because I cannot find any documentation as to the correct/intended application of transaction tax. Based on the on-screen presentation of information, everything is transacting correctly, but it doesn’t seem equitable that:
  1. Buy order writers pay NO transaction tax, and sell order writers pay UNDISCOUNTED transaction tax.
  2. BOTH the sell order writer AND the buyer filling the order pay transaction tax, while ONLY the seller filling a buy order pays DISCOUNTED transaction tax, and the buy order writer pays NO transaction tax.
