The Brutal World Of Fence PvP

Recommended Posts

Trader Fence seems to cause a lot of frustration. Players complain that they never get anything regardless of how fast they select the item and fill the cash and click the deal button.

This post will hopefully clear up some issues with how Fence works and tips to increase your chances of getting the keys and gas analysers you need.

First though a quick mention that its fantastic that people sell stuff thats rare and required for quests to Fence knowing that they will get less cash for it. This may change in the full game when auctions and direct player trading are a thing but for the time being its fantastic and ive benefited from it hugely.

So you see that gas analyser, click it and get the cash filled and have spammed the deal button in what seemed like 1.5 secs but you still missed out? Here are some things to consider if your worried that a BOT or Macro is edging you out.

At any given time there are probably 100+ players watching Fence for that thing they need and as its the BETA there are limited  quests and everybody is trying for the same kind of things. The first month after a patch wipe is always chaotic but it slows quickly especially with keys as people increase their collections.

The refresh button is not universal. When you click refresh that only applies to you, so you click refresh, see a key you want but even your super ninja reflexes were not fast enough. Chances are by the time you saw that key it was already bought by a player who refreshed before you did. 0.5 secs is all the time in the world with Fence.

You have to be smooth and it takes practice. 3 clean clicks. If i hesitate i already know ive lost out. One thing in your favour is that you dont have to be perfect with the buttons. There seems to be a decent hit registration on the Fill Items and Deal buttons so you just have to hit them smooth not bullseye them.

I love using Fence, I log into the game at times knowing i dont have time to go into a raid but i go and refresh Fence and try my luck for 5 mins. There are some things i do to increase my chances and some realities that you have to make your peace with.

NEVER EXAMINE KEYS!. I only examine a key as soon as ive bought it. That way i know what it is and i dont buy it again but if you lose out on a key dont examine it to see what it was. This means the keys i still dont have always show as blacked out and i know instantly its one i need. This also helps in a raid too.

Start at the bottom of the trader page too. Its just your luck but the largest refresh of items happens at the bottom of the page when the items auto sort. This isnt perfect as keys especially only take up one slot and ive missed plenty that landed at the top but in my experience its better to place the page around the bottom of the regular loot and the top of the guns and i usually only scroll once down and once up.... anything more than that and its too late.

Patience and Perseverance!. Ive missed hundreds of items... maybe thousands actually but still get the things i need. I dont sit for hours refreshing either. I simply got into the habit of 5 or so minutes when i log in or if im buying and selling or handing in quests i check Fence for a few minutes before i go into the next raid. Eventually you will get that thing you need and the refresh cycle will work in your favour and your reflexes will be on point but you have to come to terms with the fact that every item is not yours and the best place to get anything you need is in game. Last wipe In the time it took me to see a Factory Key from Fence i had found mulitple in game..... But then again you never know your luck.

 

Hope this helps some of you and if you have anything to add that you think helps feel free.
