Sniping items off the marketplace tip request

7 posts in this topic

Posted

Been losing a lot on the bids lately, was wondering if someone can check if i'm sniping this bids right.  As soon as the bid command pops I click on It and spam it till it changes to purchase then press space to buy the item.  Have not won anything decent in a week.  Am I supposed to spam refresh after clicking Bid and click purchase as fast as I can instead?  Does WTFast help BDO's latency and improve bidding chances?

You don't need to spam. You just need to click bid, wait till the button changes to Confirm and then click it again within 20 seconds to see if you won the item or not. Up to this stage no spamming is necessary. The winner is decided by the server and you just check to see if it is you or not. It is not a speed competition, it is just a lottery where you buy a ticket by bidding and check out if you won by confirming and claiming the item.

The spamming however can be useful after you lose an item and in the situation where the item is not claimed by the winner or when the item is partially claimed by the winner (for example someone bids a 10 mem frags stack and wins but only buys 2 of them). In this case the unclaimed item or what is left of it will go into normal BUY mode and the fastest clicker will be the one to buy it. However, it is trivial for some people to write a script that automatically spams the appropriate clicks to buy an item in this situation. Those scripts compete on a level of latency and will easily be faster than any human competitor.

luckly (or unluckly) with this market system (that i dont generally dislike, even if i had not been able to win a single bid on rare items from the beginning) there is no skill in getting a item.

Items are "randomly" assigned to one of the buyer, so its the most fair thing that you can have.

scripts, no bots, no latency involved (unless they go to buy phase.. but its very uncommon). Just luck

there is no "snipping"  anymore after the market change. blame the server merge and market change.
