    Auction Tracker - Is there still one alive, do we still need one?

    So, in the past I used auction trackers at 2pec and such. But they all seem dead. Is there still one that is active and if not, is there still a need for such a tracker?

    I mean based on the expiring auction page from the launcher, one could quite easily scrape that data.

    none are kept up to date.. an API from MindArk would be nice because even with the scraper it still sucks to gather info that way

    It's not as hard to implement but what's the point to check expiring auctions? All hot deals like less then 100% offers are taken at first moments.

    I came here to ask this exact question (except I never actually had a chance to use the old ones...)

    I've thought about building a tracker that captured relevant data from auction house screenshots, but I can't tell whether that's against the rules or not.

    I do see the LBML tool uses OCR on screenshots, and got approved by MindArk... What is the process for getting such approval?

    I would appreciate such a service, it would be quite convenient IMO.
