Auction House Sniping

I think it's outrageous that players can snipe Auction House cards when they hit 0 hour if they've been taking note of approximately when the card will end. I suggest hiding the time when cards finish and showing the wrong cards to players who abuse the Auction House so they never know what they're bidding on. Everyone I've spoken to about this thinks the same.

Well I get where you're coming from, it's mostly used by whales. However, I know really low VIPs/NonVIPS who do this and without being able to snipe cards, they wouldn't be able to get them because they cannot afford them at high prices.

I remember wanting a Blessed Whelp so badly that I bid 50 gold, but someone stole it for 55 gold right as it ended. That's stealing!!!!

Wee, for me the silliest question ever, that's how auction house works. You compete you get it. Me too, I compete for a 3000g card and finally got it later on for 2300g. Good luck on your next bid

If I meet the asking price the card should be mine, this isn't ebay. I don't care about anything anymore since I cannot have my Blessed Whelp. Alsoo there no such thing as 0 hours left, that is ridiculous nonsense that is only helping to dumb us all down for the slave camps of the NWO so they get an extra hours work out of us when there's suddenly 25 hours in a day. Auction House should be first come first served. You snooze you lose.

That sounds like a good idea, or you can only sell cards to yer mates like "this cards fer axey you covetus wee thieving gyrpsy" anyways i dont care cos ive just opened a pack of paprika crips which are not as bad as they sound! Free the opressed sexy polish chicks and admit you all did wrong to them and ill forgive you kal.

good option would be like real auction

if someone bid on a card timer extend for 30 sec.

so if bidding war is on the highest bid wil get and nnot sniped on the exact last second

so u have a time to bid right away but if u took longer than 30 sec its your own fold if soemone else get it

this only extend as extra time after 8 hours and so on

also its hard to count than also how many bids has been done and how many extend time
and fair to all

im going to agree here.

im constantly having cards sniped in auction house and its just damn right annoying when they dont end when they should.

i am up for once you bid it is yours, but then cheaters can just pay a cheap price to get a card they want etc

Its just a game....

The cards do end when they should, it's just they remain in the AH for roughly 10 minutes after they have ended, in this 10 minute period no one else can bid.

Even if they were able to add these features you're referring to, doesn't mean it would make it better? It'll just make it better for high VIPs. Sniping makes it easier for lower VIPs to get cards that they normally wouldn't be able to, at a cheaper price, since it is also harder for them to get gold.

My only assumption is, if the card is meant for you, take down the time in which it was put into AH (to the very second) or if you was not alone, just keep a keen eye upon it to see when the hour goes down. Then just before it finishes bid a second or two behind it's over.

As much as I understand the reasoning for you wanting the ability for Auction House sniping to be removed, it will not be removed, and even if it was, most of the best cards would go to the whales who just drop a large amount of gold on the card.

You say make it like a real Auction House? if you use eBay or once did, you could also bid on items at one point i don't know if you still can, don't you think people snipe items there too so that they get them cheaper? It's not breaking no rules, it's just how it's set out.
