Captcha in AH

So what's the point of the annoying captcha codes if bots are easily able to snipe whatever they want anyway? The codes are actually preventing players from competing with bots, they're doing the opposite of their design.

How do you know they are bots other than speculation?

Does anyone know if something actually happens if you fail captcha too often or are those bot scripts just brute forcing it?

It's very common knowledge and not at all surprising. In a korean MMO grinding game, bots are expected.

They use other third party programs to read the captcha and communicate with their bot script according to a reddit post awhile back.

I read something a long while back of a guy saying that they just made a screen, cropped it, and put the image in the google search engine to get a result.
Didn't really struck me at the time since it seemed like a way too roundabout way if you could just force it.

Guess no one ever just failed the captcha repeatedly for fun to find out.

i too have read many sciencefiction materials. But some pol did send me some "true" footage of these aholes doing this to convince me that AH bots exist. Right now i dont believe

I don't see how they could do it fast enough to be effective using that method. It'd have to be a way to bypass the captcha IMO.

Wait until they're not around which is... god who knows. Then ham away on that AH captcha.  ;) Most people I know bought their liverto at night where there's a very few people playing.  I say, it's pure coincidence when they bought their weapons.  Who would've thought that someone would actually post a liverto at 2am and they would actually get it at that time?

Exactly. They can skip the captchas. Swordsman Online had an "instanced" instance. Hundreds of bots in there. Picture Captchas. It was brutal.

However i am not sure that bots are the case here.

People just site "common knowledge" as evidence.

The MMOViper bot forum screenshot posted by Lo Wang above is pretty conclusive.

I dont think you need to refresh at all. It updates quickly whenever there's changes

there is still a lot of people that doesn't know how AH work nor how Bidding work

there may be bots but the system prevent a big part of their advantage (especially on the bidding object)

 

1) object go on sale with bidding (in an interval between 15-25 min after being place in the AH)

2) the bidding start and is more or less like "guess what number i am thinking" you click and automatically get assigned a random number to see if you win (many player can get the same "wrong" number)

the fact is that if 100 player try or if 50 player try right when it pop it's pretty possible that at least 1 get it right right away and snipe it

if everybody guess wrong the bidding stop you to big again but other people in the next 60 second can still bid and still be lucky and snipe it

3) finished the bidding time it's really the faster win and yes here a macro would give u a serious advantage but ONLY after the bidding a macro cannot make you bid 10 times so the advantage is minimum

 

the true is that whatever is very rare is under the radar of A LOT of player so if 1000 player try the 1 second no matter what someone will win and take it with or without macro (ok macro give u the advantage of probably try to guess the number .04 sec before but if u are lucky u are lucky if not not...)

Not only are there bots for it but also scripts that completely disables the captcha so those people can just buy without entering anything except quantity for multiple items.

How about a lot of you google up bypassing captcha and get a little educated, since it's so easy.

Instead you people would rather put on your tin foil hats, or deny everything, simply because you are too lazy to do a simple google search...

the fail in this thread is pretty funny.. and freaking sad...
