Enable Bot Protection for Marketplace

13 posts in this topic

Hello,

Obviously it is annoying as heck, macro/bot protection on marketplace transactions but we all know that the marketplace bots were already in the Alpha and CBT. Let's not make the same mistake as the other regions and just enable it from the get go.

Cheers!

Problem is: there's no protection a bot won't bypass more easily than a real player...

Do the current bots break the macro protection in Russia and KR? I figured the captcha's were specificially designed to beat OCR.

Put a captcha on the AH purchases. That should shit on some of them.

Yes that is what I mean, I play BDRU and they have captcha. Seems silly not to get it on EUW and NA, when it is guaranteed the bots come here too.

The bots have bypassed the captchas for some time now. Here's a video from another thread showing it exists.

I absolutely agree.
In this case, adding protection (like captcha) also provides somekind of fighting chance among buyers. Not just favoring who click refresh the fastest.
The captcha needs to be animated, but simple enough and easy for human to understand. 

Here's a few good example
wtf-captcha.gif 
^^ Animated, easy to see (clean) and distinguishable for human, but the font size needs to be the same and have similar spacing with fillers .

^^ Animated, but need to have the same color so it will be easily distinguishable. Simple black & white is preferred, to help color-blind players.


Try to OCR-bot that xD

I approve. Everyone hates bots. Maybe make market purchases take energy?

Please, no Captchas, they almost ALWAYS are more annoying for real people than bots.

I'd rather deal with a captcha, or maybe a trading minigame? :)    than never getting something that is being camped by market bots.

I wouldn't mind a minigame to buy the rarest things, but I have no doubt that it will not be long before bots can solve them in an instant.
