Today I’m going to talk about the RSL trading card shop.
As the name suggests, the RLS garage trading system uses cards to trade between members, and the cards are displayed on the RLCS website.
Each RLCS member can then buy or sell cards, and RLS can then offer a discount or buy an item for a certain amount of RLS coins.
Each card is displayed in a different colour, so you can see which card you’re interested in, but RLS doesn’t show which card is available on which card shop for you to buy or sale.
RLS has a great interface, and I was excited to try the system out, but it’s a bit hard to use.
As I was looking for card stock and other information, I found that the app didn’t seem to know where to go.
I tried several times to navigate to the RRS website and didn’t find it until I clicked on the “cards” tab.
I couldn’t find a single card listing, which didn’t make sense as the card store is meant to be a “shop” to buy and sell cards.
I opened up the “my RLCS account” page, but when I tried to browse for cards, it didn’t load.
I was confused.
After several more attempts, I realized that RLS is using a caching server, and that it’s redirecting the user to a page that’s hidden by default.
When I tried opening the app again, I could only open the site again after entering a username and password.
I contacted RLS support, who told me that the card shop was being blocked, and they’re working on an alternative that’ll let the user browse and browse until they find the page.
I’m hoping that RLCS will soon update the card page to allow browsing through cards, but until then, it’s hard to recommend this app to anyone.
