Remove tradeTF Price from Item Information


Baloo

Recommended Posts

Basically tradeTF stopped updating its graphs in mid-July of this year and I think it's rather pointless and misleading to still have tradeTF price integrated into an item's quick links when you hover over that item on backpackTF.

If you hover/click on a key, for example, the price is still 15.66 refined according to tradeTF. Whereas current backpackTF price is 17.33-17.66 refined and you can find multiple buyers, even on tradeTF, paying 17 or more refined for keys right now.

Yeah I'd say so, it was an interesting concept at first but honestly I've started to doubt the accuracy and it's technically invalid proof for suggestions. Just seems useless. +1

Hey Doc Brown, you went a little too far back in your time machine. Trading didn't have prices as late as 2010. 

i specifically chose '08 because thats the date i was playing lol

That's because its literally inaccurate. tradeTF has not been tracking and recording (at least not publicly) the prices of items since mid-July, as I already said. If you go to any item and check its graph on tradeTF you will see the last data point was Saturday, July 18th, 2015. tradeTF API has been sending the same information to backpackTF for the past 5 months which is a waste of both site's resources.

 

Its one thing to doubt the tradeTF's accuracy if it were functionally normally, but to actually know the site is no longer up-to-date with publicly displaying the data from its automated pricing algorithm is completely different.

Maybe Lord Swag should worry about fixing his site instead of banning people for troll trading him...

trade.tf is bad pls autoban all trade.tf scrubs

 

+1, Trade.tf is bad, their API is bad, their premium is bad, general bad bad bad.

The premium is actually pretty good, no other site has premium that works like their's.... However that said, they update suuuuper slowly and miss a ton of the "good deals", especially on SCM deals.

 

But yes as a whole trade.tf is basically a joke.  I do remember back when they used to update trade.tf prices, they were kind of accurate, however even then I think it's a bad idea to list their prices on bp.tf where items are priced in an entirely different (and better) way.  If people want to view trade.tf "prices", they shouldn't use backpack.tf to do so.
