Option tickbox to ignore the 1 lowest auction between 1c and normal price when posting/canceling
TSM ignores low duration auctions, but it can still be optimized.
I got insanely good results by continuously ignoring the cheapest auction on a specific market (boe flipping), and instead posting higher, waiting for the lowest auction to be sold.
If there is only 1 item that you're selling and that is listed between 1c and your normal price, TSM will undercut it, even if it's like 50k lower than your normal price, but still higher than your min price.
You don't always want to undercut that because that 1 auction can get sold or removed at any time. You want to keep prices at your normal price.
Sometimes you want to ignore that one auction, wait until it sells and sell yours higher.
TSM can't deal with that, you have to check manually after each scans.
ignoring X option: I think it can only be worth the risk if there's only 1 auction, but you're right there needs to be a % to enter so that tsm knows when to ignore, and when to undercut. if the undercut is too big, do like if that 1 auction doesn't exist.
I'd like to see an option to ignore X auctions, or percentage maybe. But I think this would be a huge benefit, especially with "match stack size" now gone.
@ rabid ninja, no, this is not about determining a lowest post price, but avoiding undercutting by too much under one specific situation.
imagine 5 high end BoE gear listed between 500k and 505k, you could want to undercut under 250k if many people are listing it under 250k, but if there is just 1 that goes from 500k to 250k (for 48h), then you could win big if you wait until the 250k listing goes away, then sell your item near 500k. it's not about just 1 item, but if you repeat this rule with all the boe you have, you just make more gold.

Cant you just adjust your low price so it doesnt list it lower than youre comfortable with?
sorry. New to TSM4 so I may not understand the issue.
I came here looking for something similar... I would suggest that instead of just ignoring 1 auction you can set it to always ignore x number of auctions. If it is a market that has a high sell rate you can then set it to ignore say the lowest 10 auctions because you know they will always sell & then yours will undercut the 11th lowest auction or post at your normal price if there isn't an 11th auction. This way you can get a better value for auctions with a high sell rate.
Forgot to mention that would only work if the tickbox ignores the 1 lowest auction if this is the ONLY auction listed that is between 1c and your normal price.
Or if the difference between the lowest auction and the second lowest is way too high.
It's a bit complicated to imagine but hope you got the idea :) there's a good optimization for TSM to get in that specific spot.
