    Your location, speed against the Neopets servers, and the actual site speed all matters. You could be catching Neopets during a busy time?

    I've gotten 4 second buys, and I've gotten 1 second buys shortly afterwards in a recent test...

    And this autobuyer uses a direct socket connection to do everything.

    Forgive me for not knowing. What does the direct socket mean?

    I'm having the same issue.
    Just a few weeks ago I was snagging everything, now I'm lucky to get anything.

    It's also no longer depositing the inventory despite the log indicating that it has.

    I've been having same kinda issue since the release of the beta mobile/beta mode. I've noticed lack of grabbing items/ buy times being somewhat long from what the regular times were 1 week ago.
    I am assuming its something to do with the laggy website but not really sure tbh

    The same happens to me. Before, I had an internet much worse than this, and I was able to buy with 3500. Today, only over 5000.

    Having the same issue here. For some reason, the AB isn't buying anything at all when it was buying everything last week.

    Seeing as there's so many people having issues it's almost definitely a problem on the Neopets server side, possibly corona lockdown introducing more players back into the community or TNT dropping the ball on their server payments (I believe they host with Amazon's CDN, which has been having issues lately, Guild Wars 2 has been having huge trouble with lag over the past few weeks)

    Today I managed to make a purchase in 2828, maybe it's normalizing

    I've decided to take a break for a few days. It's good timing that the HST is reset and I've got things to be busy for! New toys on my user lookup!
