bidding Please remove bidding system

I completely understand how the bidding system works..why your purchase fails, why some are setup to bid and some are not, and why they are all gone almost immediately (due to pre-orders and people clicking faster that me).  The process is of no value whatsoever. All this is doing is pissing people off because it is unbelievable frustrating.  What happened to first come, first serve without having to go through all that.  I have actually gotten off game due to the ridiculousness of it.  So many other people I talk to - it is pretty much their biggest complaint.

Please remove this system so that we can all go back to enjoying this amazing game.  Thanks!!

The bidding system is very good. Before this system hacker and bots snipes the items out of the store.

Well, it seems you finally dont understand how the system works, as right now, with the bidding system, speed is no longer concerned, there no people clicking faster than you...

I prefered the old system, because i used to be fast entering the captcha, so i could snipe items more easily. now, it's just all about rng. Speed is no longer involved.

it was meant as a joke. and "finally don't" ? odd choice of words.  No matter though, there is no need for a bidding system in this game. People pre-order - just send it to them based on what they are willing to pay and first come first serve.  Then show the rest of us what is really available to buy.

I would rather the bidding system involve.... you know..... bidding.
Let people choose which amount to bid, and let the person who bid the most win the bid.

You do realize the ultra-rich would own the market forever and you'd never have the slightest chance of getting anything rare from the MP, ever?

Almost as bad, but at least the ultra-rich would need to be online when the item is posted.

Thats what pre-orders are for.  You basically bid what you want and if you pre-ordered the highest you get the item.  The bidding systems lets players buy it at the market price rather than 2-3 times the price.  If a base dande goes for 95m people with a lot of silver probably put preorders of 300m more or less.  If the dande passes pre-orders and goes to the market, it gives other players who don't have that much silver a chance to get their hands on it.

Ive been camping at marketplace for like 18 hrs as for now to buy a value pack. Had like over 40* unsuccessful bids. Maybe its fair, but as for me its straight ridiculous.

no lie - almost 24 hrs later and i finally got my pre-ordered black stone armor - 50 of them.  I'm sorry but that's not better than what it was before the bidding system was in place.  I stand with my suggestion to just get rid of it and go back to what it was.  I never had any problems getting the items I wanted at a fair price almost immediately.  Not trying to argue with anyone here just putting in a suggestion.

I think the only person pissed off is you buddy, the bidding system is good, before, hacker bots sniped the market. This eliminates it. Sorry buddy but your in the very little minority.

you do not understand it then -_-

 

the only change the bid system needs is:

1: allow bids and confirming of bids to happen from the item get registrated and untill its sold (meaning from registrated and minimum 10mins after and max 15mins after: and the item goes to the warehouse if you win it). which would eliminated the advantage ah bots still got, afk ah bot use when your not online yourself cannot be combated without a true and functioning buy-order system though.

2: remove bid function for any item where there is more than 50 of that item already available without Bid function active on them. (to remove the annoyance of forcing people to wait 40+ seconds every time a new item comes up with lower price when being high quantity of existing items).

If only this worked all the time. 

it would need to be a system where you could set as many buyorders as you wished to do and the price shouldn't be hidden. so allow people to know what is worth spending time pre-ordering for them and what is not worth it for them ^^

a true buyorder system (also give 65% of the extra profit to the player selling it ofc. basically allowing a free max price decided by the buyer on AH, while keeping the forced minimum price.)

Ive been camping at marketplace for like 18 hrs as for now to buy a value pack. Had like over 40* unsuccessful bids. Maybe its fair, but as for me its straight ridiculous.

40 is nothing... many of us must be in the close to thousand tries without success... EVERYONE is trying to get value packs of AH, 10mill is so cheap why wouldn't you buy with silver if possible...

the entire setup of "sell CS item to others" as their "subscription must have excuse" is just bad imho...

I posted the clicking faster to me part as as joke. Anyways, thanks guys for your input.  It has given me a better understanding of the value of bidding for certain items.
