In this guide, we will go over setup and preparation for Dicks sporting goods (DSG) online releases.
Start tasks 10 minutes before the release. DSG releases can take upwards of 1 hour+ for an entire release to sell-out. There will be errors because the site is under heavy traffic. Hundreds of thousands of requests per second are being sent to the site servers. No matter what happens, keep tasks running. Errors are completely normal for these types of releases so please don’t be alarmed if they pop up. The only errors that are bad are errors noted with “Fatal” in them.
AIO DC, Resi Proxies or a GB Resi Data Plan is necessary to run tasks on DSG. We recommend a GB Resi Data Plan. When using AIO DC proxies, make sure that the proxy provider says they work for DSG. Please note that all Resi and AIO DC Proxies do not work for DSG. About 1GB of data is enough for a single release. For best success, get as many proxies as possible
Cookies: Aim to have a 1:3 task to cookie ratio.
1 task = 3 cookies
10 tasks = 30 cookies
100 tasks = 300 cookies
Task Setup DSG
We recommend using a URL when setting up for DSG. There is a KW option available as a back up, but it is not the best option to use when for hyped releases.
We recommend 5000/5000 delays for both Error and Monitor. The best Delays are going to found through testing and by gaining experience from releases. This most likely will be different for everyone depending on proxy type, location and quality of proxies. Use the Custom Delays for different tasks to test how different Delays work during the release. Set 10 tasks with 2500 Delays and another 10 with 5000 Delays and adjust as needed.
