As the title say i suggest removing the ac order limit for the private listed um sales, later in the game it just a hindrance from picking up planes
But you would still be locked on the normal UM from buying privately listed ac, just not the listed ones, at this stage in gw2 we are sitting on tons of cash and setting the alarm for every 8 game days to take the max amount of planes is just silly.
Any thoughts?

Well.

MAy be we can do like this.

Limit of 3 AC per week - is good and will not be changed.

But player can buy unlimited AC from UM if they are listed privately, but:

1. first 2 will be delivered in 2 weeks.
2. 3rd will be delivered in 2 weeks +1 day
3. 4 and 5th will be delivered in 3 weeks
6. 6th in 3 weeks + 1day.
etc...

So - you can log in once per day. Buy/lease as much as you can afford from private listings, but the delivery of ACs will not violate game rules. player will not get advantage.
If player ordered 30 ACs from UM private listings - it means he is locked out from usual UM till he receives everything, but still can continue add from private listings.

I completely support Muzhik's sub-variant.
I can go on holidays for 1 week without having to wake up at night when I return home because of so many planes privately listed BUT I can't take advantage of it to get planes faster than other people.

Great.

So basically allow me to buy everything private listed to me if i can afford it, but keep the delivery schedule as it would normally be.

I can get behind that. That or make it simple and allow for 12 deliveries/mo which is about on par with current buying ability for those of us who can log in every 3-4hrs to buy our listed frames.

This will also even things out between players who are able to log in 24/7 and those who only have a couple of hours a day to devote to AWS. And limiting it to private listings keeps the original intent of the 2+1 rule intact by keeping the UM from being drained by the big airlines & alliances.

Or maybe have the limit of 2+1 per week only apply for planes from AI, and other planes can be maybe bought at 7 per week or so. In that case, the rule would work for the whole gameworld, because if you could pick up a lot of planes at the same time, its still  the same problem as before at the start of the gameworld... at least in GW2 it was the thing, that everyone was checking when the UM was refreshed and picked up planes from the AI brokers.

probably not. The problem with your suggestion is that players backed by a lot of suppliers (private listing) would be able to gain an unfair advantage.
The idea is just to avoid traffic jams by creating an organized queue, not to increase the speed on the highway so that only players with a Porsche could take advantage of.

ok, then lets make both: a limit of deliveries (instead of purchases/leases) per week + a limit of planes that one can purchase/lease from AI per week

Id say remove the buy limitation but restrict deliveries to 7 every two game weeks. (182 del/yr)
