07/27/2012 06:47 PMPosted by HigekiHow is it botting?
It does the same thing for the AH that DBM does for raiding. Which I assume you use, being H:8/8 and all.
07/27/2012 07:44 PMPosted by FlottleyI do agree that the default AH UI is terrible but an addon like "TSM - Auctioning" is going a bit far and gives people that use it an unfair advantage.
07/27/2012 10:29 PMPosted by FlottleyI personally think it gives an unfair advantage. Addons like this will make a joke of the Black Market AH in MoP if people can mindlessly spam a button to out bid people buying stuff.
If they're willing to camp there and constantly click their button and bid higher than you constantly, that is. They're still going to be, you know, paying the money.
If you want them to not bid on it? Post a higher bid. You can, you know, do that. If they're willing to outbid you? Then they're going to get the item, and there's not really much you can do to stop it.
You have your eyes on the wrong target... AH bots have existed long before TSM existed. Addons like TSM are fine, they just allow players to compete with the bots to some degree. If they didn't exist, that would just be even better news for real botters.
However, a part of me does wish blizzard would do something aboutthe canceling & undercutting... something to make it more difficult. Adding a hard or soft limit to how many auctions you can cancel before it starts costing you gold, something. IMO, it's the ability to constantly cancel and post that enables bots (and AH campers) more than anything.
07/28/2012 12:07 AMPosted by HigekiIt sounds like you've got a bot rather than a goblin like myself. I actually need to eat, sleep and take care of my family. Bots don't.
07/28/2012 12:15 AMPosted by FlottleyThat's fine if they're going to camp the AH and out bid on any other bid to get the item, more power to them if they are willing to put the effort in. I have a problem with people using a third party add on to get an advantage over most other (anyone not using the most advanced add on) people to achieve the desired result by minimizing the time or effort it takes to place a bid. If Blizz wanted this type of funtion I'm sure they would add it themselves.
07/28/2012 12:15 AMPosted by FlottleyWell that's the thing, these add ons basically do the same thing as a bot and can be used to basically control the AH to point where auctions can be undercut within seconds thus giving others absolutely no chance which I don't see as even remotely fair.
07/27/2012 08:53 PMPosted by FlottleyThe person that has come to my attention camps the AH practically all day and night reposting one of each of the items he has to sell and shuts out anyone that wants to sell something. Now that is all ok to do, it's part of the game but using the addon gives him and unfair advantage because all he does is press one button without any thought and it cancels and relists all of his auctions. Something like Auctionator should probably be the limit where it does a better job than the Blizz UI, but doesn't mass repost and cancel, thus automating the process.
