    Bots need to be banned or limited

    This is getting out of control. If you don't have any coding experience or want to turn your account into a bot, you won't be able to do much on this site. Putting up a buy order results in instant counters by multiple bots. Same goes for selling. Turning a profit is out of the question. You need to buy from the bots and sell to them, otherwise your options are limited. Bots auto bump their trades, have auto pricing, and auto acceptance. Backpack.tf needs to offer similar features or at the very least limit the functionality of bot users. No one should be able to automatically dominate the markets like this - whether it be one person using a hypothetical super trading bot or a few people using regular bots like now. The playing field needs to be leveled in some way. Everyone should have the ability to do what they want given the same opportunities.

    Ban for undercutting price by 0.11

    I remember this part in the rules was confusing for me as well, but it is not about undercutting at all. This is for bots that own multiple identical items and make separate listings for them (unlike e.g. Bot.tf banking which only creates one listing but can sell any item). Then backpack.tf "folds" those listings together and you can see "2x / 3x ..." next to item name: This rule prohibits bots from bypassing this "folding".

    Ban for undercutting price by 0.11

    There's already a lot of people complaining about quicksellers selling for too low. As for undercutting/overcutting - I think there should be some restrictions on expensive items, for example in real life auctions you cannot bid 1000.01$ to beat someone with a 1000$ bid, it usually goes up in 1%-10% of the item value.

    Sorry to say there isn't a easy or simple fix to this. Since lower tier skins and fabricators rely on the SCM for prices.

If you want you can continuously request the bot to reprice its items! - Custom Owner Controls. - Send invitations to users to join a unique group. - Extensive Monitoring Tools - through the use of Discord live trade photos are sent, whilst through Steam, the owner gets detailed trade receipts including the information about the other user who just traded your bot. - SteamRep Scammer check - Display statistics of your bot, regarding trades, accepted and declined. - And so much more! See ЯR Bots in action: Currently have two ЯR Bots which have been used for trading and testing: SpeedyBot: https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198154777866 https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198154777866 HappyBot: https://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198177957865 https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198177957865 Their live trades can be seen in the discord group - current bot trades section (https://discord.gg/M9ftkpY) About me: - Available mostly all the times, able to help with any issues or questions. - A dedicated worker, striving to improve ЯR Bot in any way.

Information below. This bot will be available to anyone and will be distributed in a similar fashion to how Bot.tf works, but a bit different. The only difference is, you provide the steam account you wish to be your trade bot OR you can choose to use one of my steam accounts. After that, you will be in the driving seat! Your ЯR Bot will be hosted on a VPS provided by me (just like Bot.tf). Meaning it will be running 24/7! More trades done!! Pricing: Will be a subscription based. Contact me for further information.

    Is this website legit?

    Hey, this guy is talking to me claiming he is helping to develop this gambling site. He tells me to choose a participant, and they always win. It has proven to be true the couple times I have done it. The website is {link removed}. It wants me to log in and deposit a $10 item, and he says he will rig it so I will win. Is this legit? It seems too good to be true. If anyone has experience with the site I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    What is with spelled items

    spells are legacy items, those can't be applied now, since 2015 u can't get spells, and if u have one in your inventory, as soon as u log in it will disappear instantly. So having spelled items are rare, and they are cool-looking. There is a glitch tho, if u have spells in our inventory which u can apply, and u haven't logged into tf2 since then, then you can glitch it somehow, and with this glitches u can make post-2015 items spelled. There is a Chromatic Corruption Catastrophic Companion, which sold for 1000 keys.

    In the new world of trading, post crate depression, quickbuying for a certain percentage is almost a myth now. Almost every hat (Non-graded, aka, not from a case) are devalued to most traders to nothing but bp.tf buy others, and this even effected some hats that weren't even unboxed during the event. I wouldn't advertise buying unusuals at a certain percentage, as everything is almost just, buy orders now lol. Which is kinda unfortunate

    Festive Vs Festivized

    Festivized items have their own Stats pages where you can see top 5 Sell orders and top 5 Buy orders. For example https://backpack.tf/stats/Unique/Festivized Grenade Launcher/Tradable/Craftable You can open it by finding at least on Festivized item on Classifieds and choosing "Stats" in the popup, or adding "Festivized " (with space) into URL of normal stats page

    Festive Vs Festivized

    He means he wants to find FESTIVIZED, not Festive. Afaik you can't search for FESTIVIZED versions of weapons. To find them, you have to search for either the Unique or Strange quality of the weapon you want and look for where it says "Festivized" in the item's name, i.e. :

    Are trading bots good for the economy?

    Bots are neutral for the economy. The convenience and large presence definitely has contributed to more trading overall, since obviously if you want a hat, you'd rather get it instantly from a bot than wait 8 hours for JoeMama1337 to respond to their trade offer or sit in a trade server for 3 hours spamming "wtb <hat> trade me!". - On the other hand, they completely and utterly dominate the low-end non-unusual trading scene. "Scrap 2 Unusual" is pretty much a thing of the past. However, I'd argue that they haven't killed it nearly as much as the inflation of Key-to-Refined prices have. It's odd, but it seems that everyone points fingers at the bots and not the simple fact that profit margins continuously shrink due to metal becoming less and less valuable. In 2013/2014, getting 5 refined of profit in a full day of hanging out on trade servers and posting classifieds was essentially 0.7-1.0 keys, which was great if you're trading at the low end. But now, due to the massive inflation of key to metal prices, making 5 refined of profit is less than 1/10th of a key. It's 15-20 cents of profit for hours of work. It's not worth the time or effort. When keys were single digit metal prices, you could reasonable go scrap to unusual in a relatively short amount of time, but now, you'd be lucky to go scrap to 1 key in a month of nonstop continuous trading. Even if bots were totally eliminated and banned by Valve and all trading sites, keys will stay 50+ refined and your profit margins won't be worth it. Yes, you could still make okay profit at the low end when key prices were surging to 20-40 refined and bots weren't quite as widespread, but even then, 99% of the time when you flip a hat for profit, you're only getting a couple scrap to a reclaimed at best, maybe upwards of a refined for higher-metal-value hats, but those margins never grew along with the actual metal prices of keys. Bots are here to stay. Eventually in all economies, real life or otherwise, convenience eventually takes over and leads to large changes in the way commerce operates. The rise of online shopping websites such as Amazon is evidence of this in our real world economy in the 21st century. Note that this isn't some "KEYS SHOULD BE 3 REF AGAIN" rant, because not only does that no longer make any sense, but it's literally impossible to shift the market in that way without Valve implementing an absolutely amazing refined sink (which if that did happen, idle farm bots would come back in huge numbers and TF2's pop would be 100K+ every day because of it.), but simply pointing out that there's more to the story of the death of low-end trading than just "bots are bad" or "bots are good".

    Are trading bots good for the economy?

    They are convenient, but they also make life a lot harder for beginners that want to start from wep drops and get to unusuals without investing real world currency. Using dropped metal to get into unu trading was possible years ago but today not so much.

    Trading was fun back in a day when they didn't exist. Ever since bots started becoming a thing, trading pretty much died in my eyes. Now you're lucky to have an actual human offer on your item.

    Ban for undercutting price by 0.11

    If a ban on 0.11 undercuts is put into place, people will just undercut by 0.22. What do you do then, ban 0.22 undercuts? If that keeps happening over and over, the undercut minimum would eventually get so big that there'd be a sea of complaining over having to drop your prices too low to compete. If someone "can't trade" without an autolisting bot, then they should get an autolisting bot.

    Broken unusual effect

    Hi guys, I am aware of the Morning glory , DaD effects that are broken. But i just acquired a Burning Flames unusual and it is broken as well. My previous scorching hat worked perfectly, but now with this burning flames unusual the effect appears around the stomach of my character. I try to adjust the effect,to untick the adjust option .... restart tf2, nothing works. Any ideas ? 🤒

    They're exactly the same, except steam support duplicated it. No other difference. People shouldn't care. Why does duping devalue the item?

    Yes, they prop up quicksell prices. The more liquid your investments, the more willing you are to invest.

    Only positive thing i’d say is they offer fast trades which lest you get rid of the items you don’t want. Other than that, they just make everything harder.

    Bots need to be banned or limited

    Just for the record, most of these restrictions could be done by simply limiting the rates at which users can hit particular API endpoints. Obviously it would require some well thought-out details on what the limits should be, what endpoints, etc., but if you designed the API in such a way that it was intended to enforce certain rules it could all be done programmatically. Bot users would have no choice but to oblige without any intervention from staff. The added benefit is bot users would not have to program around each specific rule either, they would only have to design their bots to utilize retry rate backoff logic across the board.

    How to make profit thread

    Feel free to ask for tips and pointers on how to make profit here. This is not a place to ask if the last trade you made was ok, but rather, it's meant for people who are new to TF2 and who need some general advice on what to look for and what to avoid. This is the place to discuss when to craft and when to unbox, or if you should unbox at all. When to hoard Salvaged Stranges, when to sell those Christmas hats and every market trend in between. Will merge other threads into this. So please don't make new ones about any of this topics.
