View Full Version : System Notice - Auction Lost

03-12-2010, 11:28 AM
I would like to know for how much an item was won on an auction, not just 'you have been outbid'.
This would help on many ways.
New players can get faster knowledge on actual item pricing.
I can know for how much the price kept rising while i was offline.

This could be done 2 ways.
As a system mail.
As a record that expires (say 3 days) on the Auction House, just like 'high bidder', 'outbid', we would have 'Lost'. They could add an extra button to 'Clear Lost'.

just because someone outbids you doesn't make that the fair market value
some people just want it more than the others and are willing to pay more
that's why it's an auction

besides, the buyout price is what people usually just set for faster selling anyway, auction snipers appear in this game as well

Could be a useful feature.

However without a total redesign, keeping those lost bids in your bid list would count toward your 20 bid maximum.
Which makes it much less attractive to me as an added feature.

I would support a total redesign including better characteristic and text parsing before I would support addition of something like this. I would also support jerry-rigging a text search feature onto the existing AH before I would support adding this feature.

Not a priority IMO, but a useful secondary feature to be included in the next, more perfect incarnation of the AH (when the rapture comes).
