The bidding system needs a failstack mechanic

74 posts in this topic

Posted

You can designate 1 item to build a fail bid stack on in the marketplace section.  Everytime you attempt to bid on it and lose, you gain a failstack.  Higher fail stack = increased odds of successfully bidding on said item.  Fail stack resets when you win a bid and purchase the item.

Yes.

If they are not going to fix this games HUGE GLARING supply/demand issues on literally every item in the entire game they need to add a failstack system so if I fail at winning an item 100 times, I'll eventually have a high enough chance to get it.

It's an interesting idea, although I wonder how that would work in the algorithms when people are bidding against each other with fail stacks. Also I can definitely see an opportunity to exploit this; if there's a way someone will find it.

The biggest way to "exploit" it is, that I can see, is if you get a very high fail stack the whole pearl gifting thing will be more prominent (If you are willing to gift pearls for items, and say you have a high tet dande fail stack, you would be more willing to shell out more pearls since the chance of you getting the item is very very high).  Personally I don't see that as an issue, because to get a fail stack high you have to have failed getting it many times in the first place.

No we don't need any more bidding crap.

Fix the supply/demand ASAP. Either lower the supply of silver or increase the supply of BiS gear.

The only way you can fix supply/demand is with a free market, and they are not willing to do that.

Ya it's -----ing stupid. We need fail stacks to upgrade. We need sharps and hards to upgrade. This stupid -----ing RNG and lack of supply has me ready to quit. The market is always dry! And Heaven forbid you should want boss gear in this -----ing game. This gear system will be its downfall if something doesn't change soon.

Yeah this is the problem, lack of supply + abusive RNG = slow death for BDO.

PPL are gonna get fed up cuz they can't buy what they want.

PPL are gonna get fed up cuz RNG prevents them from progressing.

Need fix ASAP

I'd love that. And also, please don't cap the failstack percent at a ridiculously low number. :/ cap it at 50 percent

You do realize this CAN NOT ACTUALLY WORK, right? Do you even math, bro?

If there are 723 players bidding on the same item, there's no way some players can have a +30% win chance or something, gained from failstacks. The chances, combined, from all the players, have to be 100.

Also, people would just bid on random, cheap crap, and hope they'd lose the bid, just to gain failstacks. Which would lead to an even more unbalanced economy.

My prediction: the only way to get a pearl items now is by failstacking the marketplace on memory fragments, making it unable for players who don't do that to get anything. If it's item bound failstacking then I might see this work.

logs/literally any sailboat material. 

It's all free.....go chop it....In one day i got 15% of the logs I needed without trying hard.....If you're having that much trouble you either have 1)Low gathering skills. 2)Low energy. Go work on one or the other. All the other material is obtainable through either workers or grinding. 

Standardized timber - go chop so easy.
Steel - so cheap to buy literally 1 hour of grinding or get all your workers on iron and coal....like we don't have any of those right.
Pine plywood - You kidding? Go chop manshas while farming ogres and get workers on it, there are 2 nodes.
Flax.....This is just a joke over night processing while chopping wood.


You're making it sound like this is HARD. The hardest part about his is the logs, which takes dedication in chopping wood for about a week and the actual time limit restraint per day. You have alts? use their 200 energy get energy pots, buy energy pots it'll make it go faster. I'm not going to help anymore past this if you can't do it yourself you don't deserve it.

Yes they exist, but you cant still beat them. They are still based on RNG , the only difference is they bid on ALL items where when you go afk they keep bidding and you cant and they have a better % of getting it cause of that. You can still beat bots. I did on the old marketplace system.

I was recently thinking about replacing preorder/bidding system with queue system so that you can registered for one item, you are being placed in the queue and when it comes your turn you can buy the item. But I like your idea as well.

Agreed, either failstacks or some kind of queue system.
