I always start items with a low opening bid. The AH went down shortly after posting some items recently. When the AH came back online, the items were sold for the opening bid amount. Nobody was able to raise the bid so items worth several million were sold for a couple thousand. I don't suppose their is anything that can be done about it now, just curious if anyone else experienced this...
I sent a email regarding this a long time ago, the reply I got was...
basically defeats the whole purpose of HAVING a AUCTION house if I set a start bid of 1BIL, doesn't it ?
I guess if you push it, and if you push it any further, they'll start slinging the "EULA" wording around, sometimes the way these CS wording feels like my bank or those Insurance companies..
I dont ever recall ebay being down...
/shrugs... I'm just gonna go play, don't want to deal with anymore drama
imagine you actually went to an auction. you saw a car you wanted to buy ( probably repossessed.. you know how banks and stuff are.) anyway, what do you think the starting bid is going to be? 15$ or something more appropriate like 10K$. you see what im saying here right?
that trifecta you post doesnt have any business being posted for 1M bid start if the buyout is 75B. thats a ridiculous spread and your the one that is going to lose. it should be up there near 30-50B start to give people room to bid.
I was more or less referring to letting the market decide, ie; post a item that's worth a bil at starting bid of say 100K and let the market decide, it will sell for however much the bidders are willing to pay for it.
This obviously can't happen if the RMAH keeps going down at random, not to mention the loss I take since I buy gold to keep upgraded and was hoping I get back what I paid for the old item I was selling.
As you said if it was near 30-50B, someone would post 20B, then someone post 25B, its how a auction should work, since it's a 1D 12H auction and not a 15s quick sale auction you normally see at those you mention.
