View Full Version : Controlling Auction House

Where were the days when this forum was buzzing? Trying to come up with topics to discuss though...

Anyway... the auction house is mine! All mine!! Well... the artworks anyway... or atleast the sale and resale of artworks :ahoy:

See I just love works of art. You can buy a lot of things with money. You can buy a new face, a new nose, enhanced... you get the picture! But what you can't buy is talent! Can buy someone else's talent though!

And as such, I declare the artwork room of the auction house to be mine! If you want an artwork, you'll have to pay whatever minimum price I've set. For now... I think 10k per artwork is reasonable. You want one? 10k+ is your fee. I may put the price higher, but they'll won't be lower! I may or may not lower the price next week depending on how much profit I'm making ;)

Meh, I know someone got one for 7500 yesterday. Perhaps you should focus on trying to beat beans at the raiding this week. Or is that what this is, you're not getting enough attention? :P

Ok...so surely you understand then why the old AH Master had to be fired and why I've been hired :)

Isn't there a rule about auction manipulation somewhere?

Lord Aslan
07 Jun 2017, 12:12 AM
In the real world perhaps. Nothing in the rules saying you can't bid on your own items nor saying you can't place a minimum bid on all items being sold.

See, I have three artworks that are due to be sold tonight. There's only three left in AH tonight so I know all three of these are mine... If I chose to put a minimum bid on all three, thats my choice is it not?

yeah pretty sure that rule is to do with getting 2 accounts with heavy silver and transferring it to another account by using 2 accounts at once to bid onto a spesfic item that u know when it will end.
so that rule obv.. they try enforce it or something idk?
never tried, but theoretically u can farm up gold that way

pretty sure safegaurding ur own assest by guaranteeing them at a certain price is within the rules and u can use that legally on any acccount to farm gold from the servers :)

Do you know where that other rule is written by any chance?

Can't find it on the game rules and yet whispers that can't be discussed happened

Lord Aslan
08 Jun 2017, 08:38 PM
Yeah i've even read through the terms and conditions and can't find it. What I have found though is that you can buy a ton of gold, come onto the server and for 14 days basically buy everything making sure your opposition gets nothing, then quit and claim your money back.

The rule probably doesn't exist anymore since the auction push protection system went in. My guess is that they didn't think the system could be manipulated anymore. Which we've proof is wrong...

Or they don't really care as I've been doing this since auctions first started.

Bring back T3.6!

Especially the naming heroes thing!

Lord Aslan
09 Jun 2017, 08:24 AM
Oh yeah! Could play games with that :)
T3.6 was definitely my favourite version.

Trouble

yeah its fine, this way is taking skill and inteligence

the other way;
make a bot acc , sell lot of stuff make high stack of silver
time an auction from transfer account, place bids from at least 2 places
whoever wins the auction transfer lot of silver

when the prices were really high at the start and stuff went in instantly, it was super easy. and a big problem people would tansfer a lot of gs

after this system it scrambles the launch time, with a bit of deduction and a small enough server, u can fish out which one is urs.. but in major server its nearly impossible to preform this transfer at any degree of acuracy since ur auction will be mixed with those placed in roughly 4 hours either side.
idk the exact alogorithm but its something similar'

auction used to take exactly 24 hours, now it takes roughly 24 hours +/-whatever correction time the scrambler gives

Upto 1 hour either side of the 24hr mark, or 16hr, or 8hr, depending on which speed server you're playing.

I second this, turn one of the existing legends servers into an old school one.

Yes, you have my vote. Turn one of the Legends to T3.6 permanently , for a change.
The player count on all the Domains is dwindling.

Not managed to actually get any artworks for my own use yet... but the silver is certainly stockpiling for when the prices do drop :)

I doubt you will get any for under 12.5k for time being, thats the cheapest one Ive bought so far most cost me around the 17k mark.

I've had more at ~10k than otherwise.

Lord Aslan
25 Jun 2017, 11:11 PM
I got all three of those for under 10k, but yeah, not looking promising. Still, I'm not producing 2k cp yet so there's no need for me to have any for my own use yet :)
