Admittedly this is a bit of a stupid post but I needed to vent a little.
It sure would be nice if we got an update to help address this! That minimum of 3-significant figures idea for new orders would probably help a lot.
Anyway, the venting part below, don’t take it too seriously:
Isn’t it kinda rude to come into an order book and post an order that’s just .01 better in a high price market? IN PARTICULAR when you’re only doing it to cut in front of a tiny order, and you’re posting some huge 1,000 item order that’s probably not going to be filled any time soon? This is the digital equivilent of intentionally cutting in line!
I’m talking about a whale stomping on a (usually) newer player’s order, forcing them to repost if they want it to fill any time soon, when they could have just as easily posted .01 lower (same price as the small order) and just waited for that tiny order to fill. Situations where even at large quantities you’re only talking a puny difference in profits compared to your total order size. Wow I earn 10 CIS more! I’m pretty sure it wasn’t that 10 CIS that made the difference there. I mean can’t you just wait in line like a civilized capitalist? I mean it actually takes MORE effort to be rude here doesn’t it?
Whenever I have a chance to “cut” in front of another order which is far smaller than mine (assuming it doesn’t alter the math significantly) I usually post at the same value as the smaller order, so the one that was there first (I think) still gets to be first. Isn’t that the courteous thing to do? Ya jerks?
