Yup, I don't disagree. However its not the exact time your after, its the pattern happening all day every day. Its likely the scripts are not sophisticated enough to only update a random subset of whats for sale each tick, so your looking for someone searching each item they have for sale; adjusting them, and the ones that are updated change by the same fixed %, then relisting. Over and over all day long. It'll suck to sort out for a while, but again if they take real action on the ones that are abusing this, it'll stop being an issue before very long. Boze's nuclear option would be another stopgap, but they would adapt the scripts to that too; and a lot of the other things that would throttle them or annoy them, would annoy real players too. (if I am running an on-line trader, its often because I'm looking for something to pop up for sale.. I don't want to have to end trader just to check) Its also not just trader mode they're manipulating either, its the barter prices as well. Its an ugly problem, that is just the next evolution of the automated gameplay bots (gotta sell that booty, and get them krono).
