"Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment."
I like the auction house plenty. I just dont like the timer and how it works. I had a belt I was bidding on and I watched the timer on the item from 1 day down to 3 hours. I came back an hour after it had changed to 3 hours and it still said 3 hours. I waited another hour and checked it again, auction was done at that point. I felt a bit ticked, but I got over it. I would like to see the timer work, even if it has to be vague to prevent sniping. If theres an hour left then atleast have it update to show theres an hour left.
holy necro batman lol
Thats right! I bring old posts back to life, with my lack of observation skill.
Been there, lost more that I will admit to.
Would like to see a one shot use per day cancellation option (30 second window.. for the oh.sh...!, quick cancel.. whew that was close).
Jotmon - Let's not forget why we play these games - to have fun - ~
Guild: Degenerate Matter - 200 (Former Guilds: ChaosKnights, Big Damn Heroes, Shadowfiends, Order of the Drow, Unusual Suspects, Raided R)
Argo-Jotmon(Completionist - before the Otto's/XP pots easymode), Jotmonheals(Clr17/Rog2/Mnk1-Epic Completionist), Whatthetruck.. and many many more alts..
Update 24: Champions... "whew, it's ok, it's only a red name" .. sad day when trash spawn Champions and their one-shot ignore fort attacks instill more party fear than the Red named bosses.
well dont realy care about these changes what was posted abowe, im kinda used from other games, similar stuff.
but, plz fix me if im wrong, free accs are only alowed put 1item for sale in ah, right? now, doesnt it breaks game economy? alowing resales for much highter prices that supose to be(there is couple items almost same price as npc sels them for and its same quality), and npc'ing other good stuff since u simply cant put it in ah? i mean what harm would be alow way more slots for free accs? we get alot of stuf from misions loot, but only few thing are usefull, so either u hawe to hawe lots of ppl at ur disposal to trade with(guild maybe) or just npc all stuff. after ob, lots of ppl should come, lots of good stuff gone end in npc's hands =/
cant turbine alow more slots for ah? doubt it would break its wallet .
So why not have a timer showing the ACTUAL time left and extend that time to 15 Minutes every time someone bids and the timer is less then 15 minutes?
IE.. 1 second left bumps the time left up to 15 Minutes
13 Minutes lefts bumps it back to 15 minutes
You eliminate sniping because its no longer usefull to do so.
You give someone who was outbid enough time to rebid
Ok, I thought I could sit an watch an item I truly wanted and got into something of a bidding war. That last 1 hour left is BS of course and I should have been playing rather than safeguarding my item. Here's the issue.
I lost the item because someone simply outbid me ON THE HOUR and bingo, auction is over. Seems that countdown isn't nearly as random as I'd like. In the future I'll just note what hour I should be there, wait for the turn of the hour and guarantee success, right?
I might have had a chance at it but of course it didn't want to accept a new bid - I had to log out and back in and by then it was all over. Not happy.
off topic slightly, but I'm going to make it my business to mention this in every AH topic I see in the vain hopes that a dev may one day read it and go "*facepalm* oh YEAH! Why didn't WE think of that!" because I can't see any other reasonable reason for this not to be a feature in the AH yet, other than every single Dev having a total blind spot when it comes to thinking of it:
TEXT SEARCH FOR AUCTION HOUSE.
please? Pleasepleaseplease? Or a response explaining why it can't/won't be done? Please?
On topic: re OP - a 'confirm buyout' is a good idea. do that too.
