New bidding system

 I've tested this many, many times and have been defeated by RNG when I'm the only player in the game.

  I've tested this dozens of times.  You can fail with no competition.

Making that claim instantly ruins all of your credibility. There is no way you can be The Only player in game or possibly know it with absolute certainty.

I know that thread isnt only about the CS item on the market but :

since server merge + super RNG bidding, more than 300 attempt and never got any single outfit xD

 

But guess it work as intended. Player necessary get silver when they sell, only a ridiculous amount of player can get thoses, other "frustrated" so might, maybe, in the end use cash shop. 9_9

Blast from the past but.... Well you can never know with absolute certainty that people aren't bidding on the same item over and over and have absolutely no intention of buying it but it's as close to certainty as you can get with this game.

We did more testing after the post you quote.  Just to be sure.

To clarify: what I did was get a friend to post a boatload of cruddy items that no one was buying at the time (weird stuff like certain dried fish and some fried scorpion dish for example) and I would bid on them.  I wouldn't win the bid in the vast majority of cases (won 1 out of dozens) and in every single case where I lost the bid no one bought the item and I was able to freely buy it once the check bidding phase timed out.  We did the same in reverse with similar results though RNGeezus favoured her slightly more.  So either I'm correct and you can lose against yourself OR... there's bots/people going around bidding on every single thing in the market with no intention of buying. Ever.  I can't see another possibility.

You work out which is more likely in this busted game.

This is the worst marketplace/AH I have ever encountered in any MMO in existence. I watched the same guy win 27 sharp black crystals before I even had a chance to bid, even if I did get to bid I couldn't for the life of me get the ONE sharp black crystal I needed... Please take some notes from other MMO's.. if you are afraid of the price manipulation let people bid what the F they want on items they really need/want?

Yep. Still total crap. Doesn't make sense. Can literally sit in front of your screen for an hour trying to get 1 or 2 sharp/hard crystals and no dice. "Failed at purchasing the item" or "Item already sold." Meanwhile... as I smash my mouse and ENTER button into oblivion... my fingers are starting to hurt and my patience with this game is beginning to reach a boiling point.

Its still not clear. There should be 2 outcomes whilst bidding right? #1 is when u lost the bidding and 2# is when you win actually and take your item :D what im confused with are the messages which pops up at the end of the bidding. 

#1: item already sold  #2: failed at purchasing item  #3: successfully purchased the item

I'm asking a nice GM to explain and tell the difference between #1 and #2 please. 

Kind regards

The difference is as following:

  1. Item already sold: Someone else already successfully won the bid before you, so you can no longer bid on the item. It will have disappeared from the marketplace already.
  2. Failed at purchasing item: You have entered the bid, but just didn't win it.
  3. Successfully purchased the item: You have entered the bid, and won it. The item will be in your inventory now.

As soon as you win a bid, the item will be in your inventory and removed from the marketplace. This can happen even before the end of the bidding phase, which is why #1 is possible.

Best regards,
GM Dew
