I provided my opinions on that in the other thread, and I do think it would be good if we could find a solution for script-buying that would not give everyone, and not the one with the quickest script/connection a chance to buy the best imbues at the auction. The two suggested solutions, if I remember right, was:Val wrote: 2. Script-buying from AH. Since the previous topic is closed, I bring the question here. There were several opinions and proposals from players, but no opinion from wizards. After last change in droprate, some imbues should appear on AH, so the issue becomes important. The question is - is it ok like it is now with scripts buying out in 0,5 second or is any change considered?
A - Have a delay when something is added, so you can't instantly buy it.
B - Make people go to Sparkle to buy it.
For A, I think this may not solve the problem, and people might find ways to adjust their scripts to still script-buy stuff. And if you do it too annoying to buy something in order fool the scripts it'll be a annoying to buy for non-scripters too.
For B, I think it does solve the problem, but I also think it sounds a bit inconvenient?
After giving it some thought, I'd like to suggest solution C. And if someone suggested this already, sorry!
C - Use the current system but introduce some type of captcha when making a bid, one that can't be scripted but still is simple for a human to solve.
