It's been mentioned that Crowfall is not planned to have an auction house. While if done well, this can work out perfectly fine, it is, I think, worth comparing this to another game that I play that does not have an auction house.
Path of Exile is a very interesting game as far as its economy and crafting go -- there is no gold, nor an auction house. Trade is done with other players directly, and with currency which is used to craft items. However... because of its nature, third-party indexing tools have become a necessity in order to find the items you need, and to be quite honest, their necessity comes off as somewhat... unprofessional. I worry that if there is no way to search for items in game (even if it's not exactly a click-and-purchase auction house), this will become an unsavory necessity in Crowfall as well.
This is a major concern for me to the point that I purchased as supporter pack (admittedly, just the $5 one) just to make this post. I hope that the Crowfall team will take this into consideration when designing their in-game item transfer system.
