So, it seems there is still no confirmation regarding region?

Does the item listed for sale only consider pre-order's placed in the region it was listed for sale?

Does the 'character' (or is it account based) placing the pre-order need to be active and in the region when the item is listed for sale?

Does the 'character' (or is it account based) placing the pre-order need to be active and in the region and on the same channel when the item is listed for sale?

Something about this has been bugging me and maybe someone can answer:

Why can I not post an item outside of its Min/Max value, but people can set Pre-Order amounts outside of those values?

If I put a Tri-Mark of Shadow on the marketplace the max value it will set for is 243,000,000 currently. The game sets no Max pre-order value so when that items is purchased from the highest bidder at say 400,000,000 does the seller receive that difference? If not, what is happening to those extra funds?

you lose the funds and the person selling does not receive the extra funds. Only the max price. The house wins so to speak. And there is less currency in game to play with.

This is what I thought happened and if so this does not seem remotely fair or reasonable let alone balanced.

It's working for some people though. Since often you see boss gear go to pre-orders instead of the MP. It's probably based on channel and place you put it up. i Have no clue why not test it out if you are all so curious ?

I wish we would get the money from selling items via preorder. Kinda seem like wasted money. I know that's the idea but... the prices don't reflect the real value of the items a lot of time. Especially for rare items. They should either update prices better or give us the preorder money. Also it would be nice to see the last successful preorder price so you have an idea when preordering of how much you should put in.

Also the obvious biggest problem with preorder is that it doesn't always work. So even if your preorder is high, it might go straight to the market. Too much rng involved here.

On a side note, that bidding is a mess... I never get any items I want on bids. And definitely a pain in the ass when it comes to armor and weapon stones. You waste your time bidding, only to lose, then try to buy normal, only to have item already sold, then you try with next one, only to lose bid, to not being able to buy normal... etc... never ending fail.

In some cases it would be nice if you could buy the more expensive items just to skip that bidding circle or fail.

I think they did improve the system a lot since the start, but there is a lot more work to be done imo.

LEAVE BIDDING ALONE , BIDDING IS FINE. BIDDING IS FAIR.

Pre-order system however is a horrible attempt at a market system.
Why all the obfuscation? 
Why not allow the market to determine the price of items? Just so it's Different from other games?
HURR DURR We don't like supply and demand in our game. Let's let demand be arbitrary and see where that gets us.

is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow? Why does he not get to keep the extra money from the pre-order,
Is this not in-fact THE incentive to hunt in demand items?

Oh right I forgot demand is arbitrary.
Also you can easily test your theory on pre-orders being tied to region by putting one up and having a friend sell to it from different regions. ezpz

Greetings adventurer,
 
Thank you for reaching out to us. I'm Senior Game Master Haliaeetus and I'll be assisting you with your ticket today.


I'm sorry to hear that you weren't able to pre-order your friends item. I know how frustrating this can be, especially with items so hard to get such as a Dandelion. The reason why your pre-order did not work may be one of the following:
 

  • After you register a pre-order, it can take some time for it to become active.

  • Another player has pre-ordered the same item at a higher price, in which case it will be sold to them instead.

  • If you are trying to buy a piece of equipment, please note that pre-orders are enhancement-dependant. So if you place a pre-order for a +2 equipment item, and someone lists a +3 equipment item, your pre-order will not count for that.


Regardless of the above, there is also always a chance that an item will skip the pre-order phase and go directly onto the marketplace as a normal sale. This is an intended game mechanic. Please keep in mind that player-to-player trade is not a feature in our game, and the marketplace pre-order system is not designed to be a workaround for this.
 

I hope this answered your question. If you have any other issues or find anything else that bothers you, please don't hesitate in re-opening this ticket or creating a new one and we will be more than happy to help.
 
Kind regards,

GM Haliaeetus

Can I be located in Heidel and place my preorder for an item that was sold in Calpheon? Or I need to be in the same town as the player who sells the item?

I've pre-ordered two pieces of blue whale meat. Often times I get a pop up asking me to confirm, and I do. But nothing happens after that.

Really no idea what's going on. If someone bid higher than me, why do I even get asked to confirm?

The way I see it, just another RNG if it'll go to pre-order or not.

Even tested the thing by trying to buy Nouver Knot from a friend 3x, none went to pre-order and went to bid phase, all given a different time when I placed a pre-order.

Same thing with Tet Kzarka krieg,

Don't think I've won any big items through it once, all had to be gotten from NV, boss loot, or won from bid phase.

Definitely a big mess and should be reworked, but this is BDO, we need more content, not fixing our current problems in BDO

If you want to get your buddy an item such as boss armor or a dande weapon try my suggestion:

1.  Get the item between +9 to +13.  

2.  Pre-order and post the item in the same city (channel is not required). Give the pre-order a good 5 minutes before posting the item.

When putting down your bid you don't have to put a crazy amount above the normal cost. i.e. Sold a +11 Giath's Helm on the MP for 119 million.  Guildie pre-ordered for 140 million and got it.  5 minutes later, I put a Bheg's Gloves +9 up on the market place for 105 million and the friend successfully pre-ordered for 120 million.  

There is always the chance it might fail so be ready to attempt to snipe it!

Good luck!
