What I don't see is a fix to show the actual current bid on an item. I have to bid numerous (10-12) times to find the actual bid price.
Ugh these whining noobs who have ruined the game wihtout understanding it first. THIS IS NOT A BUG. it is proxy bidding, it is anonymous bidding. You bid how much you're willing to pay, and that's that. You don't sit there pretending to be amazing and *snipe* items at the lowest price.
If you bid 1000g, and I bid 1,000,000 gold, your bids will always fail until you exceed my PRIVATE bid, you don't see my amount until you exceed it. However because of this, you are always refunded the difference between the winning bid (yours) and the second highest bid.
Example - You bid 1000g on a ring which is obviously going to be too good to be true. I bid 1,000,000g on said ring. You click bid and go to 2000g. It will only show you failed the bid, and the highest bid was 2200 (or something). So you bid 3000g, and it will happen again. So you bid 300,000 thinking what the hell. It happens again, it will show the bid is at 315,000 (or so). However if you bid 1,100,000, you will start winning. Now let's say 1,000,000 was ALL the gold I had and you had 3,000,000 at your disposal. Just bid all of it damn it. Then when the bid war ends and you have bid 3,000,000 and I have bid 1,000,000, guess what? YOU PAY 1,000,000!!! You will be REFUNDED the difference of your bid (highest) and my bid (second), ie. 3,000,000 - 1,000,000. It IS INTENTIONAL, and to account for it, you recieve the difference.
