Diablo® III

+10 sec after each bid = fair price + ...

If Blizzard would add +10 sec after each bid to the auction expiration = fair price + no more 1 sec outbidders.

Please discuss.

No way. 1 sec outbidding is the best. Just bid what you're willing to pay and there's no problems.

bid price: 500k

your max bid: 5m

if no one bid on it... you will pay 500k and get 4.5m back...

if someone bid 1m... you will get 4m back if you won

if you want the item... you have to be willing to pay more

stop being cheap

+1 to the replies from Baked/Lt. This is how auctions work. Bid what you are willing to pay, and you won't have a problem. I think the rampant complaining about this "sniping" is
a) from someone who is trying to do the same essential thing the snipers are doing by bidding just above the last known bid, and subsequently getting pissed when they get beaten at their own game.
b) from someone with a fundamental misunderstanding of online auctions in general. This is the way they all work, including ebay.
