Market Bot : big problem

11 posts in this topic

Here is the problem, seems that some guys are using market bot and buy all blackstones on auction. Blackstones never stay more than 0.5sec. I guess staff could check the logs and ban people using those bots. This gonna ruin the game for real. Seems we will need some captcha to buy in market like on RU...

For real and everything?  Legit, yo.

In all seriousness, you mean the two digit "mini-captcha" is not good enough?

It's not just blackstones, I can't purchase anything I need for crafting. I sat there refreshing the page for Sturdy Pine Plywood and as soon as one popped up I put in all the info and clicked "purchase" in less than 1 sec. It was already gone. Market bots will be the death of this game. The economy won't function if nobody can purchase the materials they require off the market, or Liverto weapons and the like. Devs absolutely need to address this asap.

There are no market bots - just highly influenced people who set up market notifications and sit there hitting refresh on the item they want.

The shitty thing is, if you are a bit more laggy then some other people who want the same item, then you are probably never going to win the auctions you want.

I've witnessed this to some extent.

I was lucky enough to snag items before they vanished, hopefully screwing up their macro.

It's a simple issue of supply and demand.

There is no macro that can bypass the captcha.

Unless you have PROOF I can't and won't believe that such a thing exists.

This.

 

Sorry but the example used above of Sturdy Pine Plywood is horrible. Me and no doubt many, MANY others have been stalking that one for ages because hardly anyone has been able to craft it till recently. It took me a fair number of listings to finally snipe my pinewood off the market and I can tell you it's a matter of seconds. It's staring at the screen till the counter goes up, hitting refresh, rushing to max and finishing the purchase trying not to mess up the captcha.



I'd say from the moment it's up it's 2-3 seconds, that's the max it takes me, if even that, and multiply that by the countless other people trying to get their noble wagons crafted.

I take it back. Apparently there ARE indeed market bots. Captcha isn't as fool proof as we would like to think!

this would fix it and makes it a lot better for players:

because BDO is encuraging the AH bots with their absurd design on buying items from AH -.- why in the world cant you place an order on items.. its just absurd in my oppinion

nope, and in the version they have in its nothing but a silly jesture to trick the ignorant on the area to think they are combatting these bots. but all it does in reality is make it more annoying for legit players... it got absolutely no effect on the bots (due to its simplicity of a captcha, it is so simple to circumvent that it would take any decent programmer less than a day to fix the bots to it.).
