I've bid on so many items. I have like 200m and just trying to get myself a decent weapon for the Dark Knight.

Can't even win the costumes. How do people win so many good bids?

More people trying to get an item = less chances to get the item.
Lot of people is trying to get stuff for their DK, and cash items are always hard to get.
It's just about RNG and patience. 

Well, the good thing is, someone did got the item, that person must be really happy.

You don't, not if you need the item. You will never win. But if you're a bit unsure if you want it, than there's a tiny chance you'll get it.

I won the full Labreve set for witch. But I sort of didn't want to win, because had Pearls charged up for that specific costume. But since only 24 million and everything in the market is underpriced as ----- to make sure at least 5 thousand people roll on a single item, I pressed bid randomly. Didn't care so ofc won.

lol.  Well I got my Kzarka and Kutum today from winning bids.  Though I probably bid on every single one thats gone up since wensday.  So took a fair amount of effort.

The bid system in BDO is another, heavily based RNG "game". Basically, between you and the other thousands of contestants, you'll have X amount of chance to win the bid. For example, if 100 people (including you) bid on the item, you'll have a 1% chance to win the bid, same applies for everyone else. Just another of the idiotic mechanics made by the game devs.

I find it more annoying when you place a pre order and you get constant pop ups telling you that others have bought through preorder.

IDGAF that others are buying what I want through pre order it's like it's intentionally done to piss you off

I was just crying about losing in ch chat and some guy PMed me saying that i need to get a hold of transaction maid. According to him it has a higher chance of winning and all items go to maid owners. He claims that he won 6 pets in 2 days since he got the maid

You don't been trying to get DK outfit 300 bids nothing yet but I will get sooner or later it's annoying really. But I was around during older marketplace system which was controlled by bunch cheating ass bot macro and script user. So I prefer the current system.

This isn't quite true.  I have been bidding on the new DK outfit and losing in an awesome fashion using the transaction maid.  Can verify this as not being a total thing.  Guy was lucky and is spreading misinformation.:)

Well I noticed that if I bid on more items at the same time I have (logically) a higher chance on landing a succesful bid. So bidding on random items might help, I got my first value pack while bidding on other items as well. Maybe just Lucky but idk.
