02/27/2013 07:45 PMPosted by Newschooleridk if other people find this to be a problem but when bidding on items in the last few minutes when you try to increase the bid, it doesn't accurately say what the top bid is at.

For the Diablo Auction House it enables players to make a truthful bid, leave the game, come back 24 hours later and see if they won. No need to babysit a bid and make sure you don't get "sniped".
