View Full Version : Suggestion: Min bid percentage

So the first thing I've noticed in the new AH is that everything I bid on I get outbid by 1 plat.
Now, it's not a big deal, I just jump 50 plat up and see if my opposition is still there.

Still, seeing so many auctions going 1 plat up at a time like little children are fighting over it is a little weird.
I think WoW had a system where if you wonna outbid someone you need to do so by some small percentage, (can't remmember how much, 5% maybe?)

I think its a good system, but I'd be happy to hear if you people think a change is needed or is it fine as is.

It should be a max bid, like Ebay, and then just autobid you up to your maximum. And yeah, you should have to beat the current bid by some %.

It's a good idea all around... it prevents obnoxious bids, which is good for buyers, and makes bidding more lucrative for sellers, instead of a bidding war by pennies. I like it.

Well everyone wanted the AH ASAP, so any fancy features are going to be missing.
