No, no, no. gold->gem flippers killed that by putting up request batches of up to 600. In a first-in-first-out system, that means the person wanting to buy a few keys for gold to open chests with waits the same time as a flipper waits for his/her 600 keys.
Even if supply had stayed constant, demand balooning was already pushing wait times in the months. (IIRC leather keys for gold went from a few hours to over a month over the 2 months prior to the "key sell restriction" update)
So at most that key sell restriction update put an already dying key flip system out of its misery.

If the tradehouse system would be "round robin" per single item instead of FIFO per slot, then I guess buying keys for gold to use them could actually still work, since a small requester would receive them at the same but constant-ish rate as the bulk flipper...

I'm waiting for silver keys from November.
A positive note: during the july's update they have finally removed requests from inactive players
:arrow:
before the update, silver key's queue: 50K+
after the update, silver key's queue: 30k+ [now. 22k, a week from the cleaning]

I'm waiting on silver keys from last September. I'm keeping the requests up out of stubbornness at this point.

My neighbor received the keys requested in November or October.
It turns out that the queue was really broken during the patch.

- Both golden and iron keys seem to be discussed here, which can cause some unclear info which of the 2 queues are meant.
- There's the suggestion there was a tradehouse cleanup with the patch. In combination with some people having login troubles after the patch, that can lead to non-broken out-of-order filling of key requests while not all active players' requests were back in the queues yet.

So what, my key requests have been totally borked for over half a year? Guess I shouldn't be surprised.

If they were requested at the cap of 20M pre-tax/18M post-tax exactly, maybe they are? (Probably plenty of people have wondered why requests for something wasn't getting filled, only to notice a typo. Because of that for cap-price items/artifacts, I just tack on a few extra digits, then watch for the "You cannot trade for more that 10x an item's base value" popup and it refreshing to cap price to ensure I'm indeed at cap.)
If you can't see any errors in your request, maybe support or Darkis can help? (linking this forum topic to prevent a canned first response)
