I saw my post about wrong auction bid is removed. Asking the question again:

If someone doesn't follow the bid sequence, and another person assumes the wrong Bid as a right bid and if this continues, what will happen? If you could kindly explain

Invalidation of wrong post. And removing the same is well understood.
But correcting all posts in proper sequence order by Gms is going out my head. ~x( ~x(

Its like correcting the mistakes of the people is kind of doing favors to them.
In this situation all sets of rules have no point or value, since you are correcting their mistakes by yourself. :-@

Its clearly visible that Gms just want to see the higher bids and higher amount , that's why the Auction duration also got extended. :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

If we want a truly fair auction, then the rules should be set to that if someone increases the bid at the last minute, then the auction time will be automatically extended by three minutes, and the time will be extended indefinitely as long as there are people bidding.

As far as I can see, everyone’s strategy is just to bid at the last moment to get a very low price. This completely loses the meaning of the bidding auction.

IGN : Kkhan
My bid : 54 Bill


Such people should be permanently banned from participating in any bidding activities..

An account created to intentionally misleading bid..
A new forum account, Inactive or even unseen game ID , and deliberately used the wrong format to bid after being reminded by GM.

We are only correcting the bids when the actual correct bid amount is lower than the bid amount that the player has placed. This is just to save player's time and not cause issues to others just because someone who has bid didn't follow the rules. The extension was because peak bidding will happen at New Year's Eve and most players will find themselves busy with their personal life. That's why we have extended the deadline by 1 more day.

In the future, we will implement a bidding system directly in the game so that we no longer have to use the Forums to bid.

Very fair point, but just stating that this works against players from North and South America. Might make more sense moving it to Jan 2 in that case

Hello GM Blade, congratulations, great initiative to extend the auction, it was better to follow the grand finale of the auction..
By the way, I would like to make a suggestion, on the unique weapons in the auction, leave the glow in another color, like the mania + turns blue, the auction weapon would be in another color, this way it would be easier to track possible sales and exchanges, and it would make the most exclusive weapon, thus most coveted and competitive at auction..thank you, happy new year everyone

I am extremely sorry to say that your reason is totally irrelevant. :-\
Since Everyone one is having equal time frame i.e 1 jan 23:59:59 hrs.
You simply helped those people who are ignorant towards the rules and moreover they showed hard behaviour with the defaulters. :(
And the irony is that the people who found out the mistakes and reported to you Gms,their only posts got invalidated.
And you corrected the bids which were wrong/ invalid according to the rules ~x(

Which means Gms prefer stupid people before smartones. =))

Since this bidding is going on woonz, I don't see any kind of support to server from player's end..
Instead Gms should have left this auction thread upon player's wisdom.
The winner would come out as suprise, and definitely he would be amog 'SMARTONES' ;)

Dude, if you don't want to participate in the auction because you don't know how to read the rules and bid correctly, don't disturb the rest of the players who are here to participate and have fun... Instead of creating controversy, go farm a free snowman... The GM is trying to resolve and organize the Auction in the best way..." don't want to find horns, in a horse's head" please

Any bid that is not as per the rules will get invalidated. Subsequent bids will be corrected to adjust to the lower amount. This is why we have fixed bids increments. Anyone bidding incorrectly, their bid will be invalidated and every other correct bid will be adjusted if the adjustment bid is lower than the actual player's bid.

Hello GM,

i want to attract your attention towards a bid going on in G9 weapon of choice Section. Where i have bidded 4b for arnir after which two other persons have bidded 4.25 and 4.5 bill respectively but for Sunitz.

after which there is another bidding for Arnir done by a bidder quoting 4.75b. so i just want to bring it to your notice that as per rules given on bidding page this bid should be increased in 0.25b higher then the old bid.

so please do not count the bid which was bidded by a member asking arnir for 4.75b directly after my 4b bid which is incorrect.

i have reposted my bid of 4b again for reference. i wish to bid more ahead and want to get this weapon of my choice but in correct bidding manner.

please do the needful.
