Tired of marketplace snipe bots

222 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Before i was like w/e but now its gotten really bad. Can't buy any of the demand items on the market. Its gone before it even gets highlighted. Please do something about this. The captcha at the start before buying an item hinders real players more than bots. It's gotten really bad and very annoying now. 

 

Cant take it anymore QQBBQ

No one is botting, you just need to sit there and press the buttons as fast as you can.

Agreed. The anti-bot programs are only a pain to actual humans.

I don't know what items you're talking about in particular, but I was sniping dim crystals all day without a bot.  It's pretty easy to leave the game open in windowed mode and work on something else, then snipe an item as soon as you see it posted on the market in the background.

You don't even need to press refresh, just stay on the screen where you search the item, as soon as it becomes available you will be able to buy.

Just because you're not fast enough doesn't mean there are marketplace bots.... I've been able to snipe high priced, rare items before.... not a bot.

This game is not Elder-friendly, you really do need the reflex of 18 years old.

There are a lot of ppl botting. I've been sitting here for the past 3 hours trying to buy something only to see it go away instantly. I cant even click on it before it grays out. No one is that quick. The game doesnt let you do it that quick. Im not the only one who can tell you that there are bots. It's very easy to tell.

I know. Its gone before i even click the item to buy. My reaction time is pretty quick but this is like roflcopter fast

I'm pretty quick myself, I've been able to get stuffs as soon as they turn green.

Just stare at screen for 15+ mins, once it turn green, click, type in verification code, bam.

GOOOOD, why are people as stupid as you allowed to even post on the forums?

Marketplace bots have existed for more than a decade. You really think they aren't used?

There are scripts on games with marketplaces that scan through items looking to find items being sold for minimum value, so they can sell it back at maximum.

They even banned an Addon on World of Warfraft five years ago, because it LITERALLY played the Marketplace for you, in two simple mouse buttons.

The problem is it goes away right when it turns green. It basically looks like it flashed. No one is that quick. Even with super saiyan hand eye coordination you cant do it fast enough to where it looks like it just flashes on other ppls screens. Thats botting and its really common. I've been seeing it since day 1 and its only getting worse.

 

Also whats up with the insults?

I'm just saying the market place mechanism is unfair and need to be changed, I apologize if you are offended.

Marketplace bots have existed for the majority of two -----ing decades. You really think they aren't used?

There are scripts on games with marketplaces that scan through items looking to find items being sold for minimum value, so they can sell it back at maximum.

Just because such programs exzist in other games it means they exzist here? Think of the fact that there are not only 3-4 people trying to buy the same thing at the same time but more like 13+ , then think that this is online meaning sometimes it might come with abit of a delay.

 

Just curious , what high demand items are you guys trying to buy and never can due to "bots"

I didn't see any actual videos of someone using the bot though, just people who think their item got sniped by a bot..

 

I'm also kind of curious how it would work.  I guess you would just have it click where the buy button will be when it gets listed, but what about the captcha?  Just have it click the button and spam random combos until it happens to get one that matches?

Though I'm not dismissing the possibility of botting, I'm also wondering if things refresh at slightly different times for people.  I know my friends and I, on the same server, have experienced the 'nighttime monster increased AP/XP' message seconds apart from each other.

 

And I've had that same issue as you, where the item disappears before it's even clickable.

You don't need to see a video when you can see sites offering the bot for sale, etc. It exists. There are multiple places to download it, etc. I'm not saying every time an bid is lost it's a bot, but they definitely are out there.

Yeah but those could easily be scams.

I mean I'm a programming student so I'm just thinking about how you would even write a bot to do this and I'm interested to see proof of one actually being used.  Not a video of someone who thinks they caught a bot, or a link to pages that sell them, like an actual video of the bot in action.

Anything from the top crafted gems to the rare marketplace lists like +1 costumes or wagons and such. A couple of guildies/friends have also been getting rekt by these bots so im not alone.

There are no bots available to just download rofl. You download anything that says its a bot its actually a virus.

 

The only marketplace bots that exzist are the ones that are custom made , prolly below 20 bots in total (and this is such a huge number considering there is no way to actually make profit using bots in this game due to set prices and 30% marketplace tax).

 

For the last time , just because you didnt get to buy it doesnt mean that it was a bot. You may think ur fast and whatever but keep in mind there are 10 more dudes like you who think they're the FLASH of the auction house.

Your logic is deeply flawed my friend.

The statement "there exists botting programs" does not provide necessary and sufficient condition to infer that people are botting in BDO and particularly on the marketplace.

I feel ya. 15+years coding in the IT industry :P  Let's just say I know a person or 2 that has/does use it. Only reason I know for a fact they do exist, and No, they aren't people in my guild so I can't punish them lol.

Like i know a fair bid that i lost and dont mind that but when an item literally flashes from gray to color to gray within less than half a second its a bot. Puts me on tilt.
