    • [The Grand Auction] Extremely rare recruiter's​ skins at auction now! Don't miss your chance! - Now: Sheepdog!

      The Grand Auction

      Please read the rules below, especially how to make a valid bid or your bid does not count!

      All bids must be made within 24 hours of the last bids timestamp, otherwise the auction ends!


      Contact: Bogul#6397 on Discord for questions.

      I do NOT have a fixed schedule for updating the ask prices, but you can assume I will do it every few days.

      I have decided to sell these items below in a dutch auction style.

      This means that in certain increments the asking-price will drop until a first bid is made, then a normal auction starts where everyone can out-bid the previous offer.

      All items are located in Caerleon!

      Next item-package for auction:

      Sheepdog & Recruiter's Storage-Barrel
      • starting price: 4.000.000.000 (4b Silver)
      • current bid price: 2.900.000.000 Silver
      • bid-step level: 50m
      • location: Caerleon
      • once this auction is finished, the auction for the "Giant Frog & Wardrobe Skin: Recruiter's Ale Mug" will start
      • the winner of this auction will be elegible for a 5% discount on any future auctions
      • only valid bids are accepted (read below for the rules)

      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!
      ALL BIDS MUST FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:
      • 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!
      • Please put the bid amount you are confirming into the answer as well.

      • There is a sniper-rule in place:
        • Once someone makes a valid first bid or outbids someone else, a 24 hour sniping-protection period will start.
          • The sniping-protection period begins at the forum-timestamp of the last valid bid and ends 24-hours after the last valid bid.
        • During the sniping-protection period anyone can outbid the current bid, if they post a valid bid (screenshot) into this thread.
          • Outbidding someone else is only permitted in the bid-step-level increments. If the bid-step-level is 5m and the previous bid is 500m, the next bid allowed is 505m.
          • Subsequent increases of their bid to out-bid someone else do not need a screenshot again, but the first screenshot must show that you have enough silver to cover the bid.
        • If during the sniping protection period multiple valid bids are posted, the item auction price will increase one bid-step-level with every bid and the 24-hour sniping period will move to 24 hours after the last valid bid in the thread.
        • If during the sniping protection period (timestamp of last valid bid + 24hours), no new bids are posted, the auction is concluded.
        • If this is confusing, look at the example below.
      Example of the sniper-rule in action:
      • Let's say the price of an item 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 (of 500m) 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).
      • Player B wants to outbid the curent bid and posts a bid at the same day of the first bid at 16:25.
        • Other participants including Player A now have time until 16:25 of the next day to outbid Player B.
        • If during the 24 hours after the 16:25 bid anyone else makes a bid, lets say Player C at 19:45, the new end of auction time is on the second day at 19:45 -> 24hours later.
        • This repeats indefinately. If I sense shenanigans or manipulation attempts I reserve the right to stop the bidding at any time and restart the auction or exclude someone from bidding.


      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."

    • I can't expect you to understand really high brow humor. Especially, if you are unfamiliar with the Wharton Business School case study on difficult to deal with customers. Fortunately, as part of the US efforts to expand intellectual studies, a video version has been uploaded publicly.

    • Please boys, theres no bottom price listed. Let it run its course and do not over pay because someone on discord offered some crazy amount. I'm sure he's just trying to find out the lower range (buyers price) of each item as we've only been exposed to the higher rage (sellers price). For all we know he's sitting on a lot of these items and is having liquidity problems.

      No point, if its worth nothing in the end. Please lobby for more content production. More variations in npc, customization, etc.
      this requires a canned community manager response! , letsgo:

      "I think you will be surprised what the next major content update has in store!"

      "I think a lot of the things you mentioned will be included in that. You can learn more about what that includes specifically here and here."
