      Please read the rules of the auction below:
      • There is one skin or package for auction at The Grand Auction at a time.
      • Items that will be auctioned at a later time are not open to any bids outside of the order listed above.
      • Early bids will not be accepted.
      • All sales will be published in this thread once they are final.
      • A winner of any of the previous items of this auction (The Grand Auction) will recieve a 5% discount on any other item of this auction (discount applied only once).
        • Example: If you win the Alpaca auction, a 5% discount applies if you win the Sheepdog auction on the final sales-price.
      • Further rules can be added later and changes to the auction are possible if exploitive behavior is detected.
      • Make sure to bookmark this thread to be notified about bids and updates!
      • In order to make a bid on a skin, you must post a screenshot of a character you control with enough Silver to cover the bid-price into this thread.
      • The character name and the Silver amount must be visible!
      • There is a sniper-rule in place:
        • Once someone makes a valid bid a 24 hour sniping-protection period will start. The beginning of the sniping-protection period is from the timestamp of the valid bid.
        • During the sniping-protection period other participants can match the current bid, if they post a valid bid (screenshot) into this thread.
        • If during the sniping protection period multiple valid bids are posted, the item auction price will move back up one step to the previous day price.
        • At the end of the sniping protection period (first valid bid time + 24hours), the new (higher) auction price will be in effect and only participants who made a valid bid during the sniping-protection period (24h) are allowed to confirm their bid on the new price.
        • If two or more bids at the new higher price are confirmed by the participants, the auction price will once again raise one step and the process will repeat until no more bids are confirmed and the higest bid will win.
        • The exclusive bid timeframe for confirmed bids at higher prices is 12 hours after the matching of the new current bidding price.
        • All current bids, offers and deadlines will be posted in this thread and will be updated by me as good as I can, but the time-stamps of forum posts matter.
        • If this is confusing, look at the example below.
      • Example of the sniper-rule in action:
        • Let's say the price of the Occult Cougar ticks down over a few days and arrives at 500m Silver. The noted price-steps are set to 5m per bid.
        • Player A decides this is a reasonable price for him and he posts a valid bid as a response to this thread.
        • The time of the post is 14:35. The sniper-rule is now in effect until 14:35 the following day (24 hours).
        • If anyone else posts another valid bid into the thread within 24 hours, matching the bid of Player A, an individual auction will start where only the people who posted a valid bid within 24 hours of the first valid bid can make further bids on the item.
        • Let's assume Player B and Player C also make a valid bid within 24 hours from Player A's post, matching the 500m Silver bid.
        • At 14.35 + 24 hours (one day after the first valid bid is made) the new auction price is set to 505m Silver.
        • Only Players A, B and C (nobody else) can now make a bid on the new auction price.
        • If the new price is matched by two or more bids, the 12-hour period of exculsive bidding will start and the price will move up one more step.
        • The 12-hour exclusive bidding period starts at the time-stamp of the second matching bid.
        • Lets assume Player A matches the bid at 505m and Player B also matches the bid at 505m at 16:05.
        • The price will move up to 510m at 16:05 and a new 12-hour sniper-protection window will start at this time, in which Players A, B and C can decide to once again match the bid.
        • Now three scenarios are possible:
          • Two Players match the new bid at 510m, in which case the bid moves to 515m and a new 12 hour sniper-protection window will start at the timestamp of the matched bid. This continues until either scenario 2 or 3 happen.
          • Player A matches current bid and neither Player B, nor Player C respond within 12hours of Player A's post (or they decline to match) -> Player A wins the auction.
          • Neither Player A, nor Player B decide to match the newly increased bid. In this case Player A will win the auction at the previous price step, because he was the first to confirm the new bid at the new price.
      • Example of a valid bid:
      • (you confirm the price in the message, your character name is visible, the character has enough silver (or gold) to cover the purchase price)
      • "I confirm my bid for the Direboar Skin at 50m."
