Where o Where have all the auctions gone? (in General)


QBRanger September 13 2006 10:26 AM EDT

I have noticed, along with DAWG, that there are almost no auctioneer auctions. I can only find one lesser steel familiar that is being auctioned via the auctioneer/cb2 system.

Changes?

It's been like that for a couple of days now.

Watch the skies! (or changelog...)

GnuUzir September 13 2006 10:29 AM EDT

The changes are coming, the changes are coming! Everyone Panic!!!!

/me thought the skies were the changelog

Hmmm a new kind of auction. You send Jon 2 mil and if your lucky he sends a tulwar. If your real, real lucky you might get a base THF. And, if the world is ending, a morg may come your way =D

dare I say the word that usually involves a tent and the wife complaining about spiders?

There's a katana in there somewhere. So if you're planning a team around a base katana and a base steel familiar, at a real low price you're in luck.

Maybe we've run out of rares!

p.s. if I was doing that thing, I would say a big pop is coming in the next 30 mins, probably a lot less.

lol @ Sefton...It would be great if the C word finally made a comeback.

Better be wearing your tin-foil hats guys the government can read your minds!!!

Godpanda September 13 2006 10:34 AM EDT

Umm yeah go ahead and get your hopes up. That makes sense :)

QBJohnnywas September 13 2006 10:34 AM EDT

Quick, look!! They are all in the stores!!!!!!!

After that huge blow out sale by Snker, the auctioneer is scared?
Or someone beat up on him, whatever tickles your fancy.

Changes? please no! New supporter item? I hope!

Haven't checked the detail, but is it really lower than normal?

Wait I got it, a new Monty-like feature that warns if a player you are about to make a deal with will get pissed at the next change and quit ;-)

The frequency of spawning of the non ammo items seems a lot less these past couple of days..

QBSefton [Black Cheetah Bazaar] September 13 2006 11:16 AM EDT

I will say this, as a careful store watcher and previous decent, well you know that word, random probability is such that you are more likely to bunch, than get even distribution over a long run. All that fancy talk means is, that you tend to get spates of lots of spawns and then no spawns, rather than spawns on a regular basis.

I know I know, true mathematical probability says, that if you flip a coin 99 times, and each and every random time it lands heads, the next flip is still 50/50 heads or tails, but, I am less likely to bet heads personally on that 100th flip if you just got 99 in a row, and the coin is actually true in the mechanical sense.

So all that gibberish means is, there were often times when nothing good would spawn, for days even, then the dam would break loose and a nice big flood will come. The longer the drought, for me at least, the more likely the flood will come sooner than later.

Yes, you can refute my logic mathematically, but you cannot refute the success of my method. :)

LOL!

Claire refuses to do that! ;) Needs her bed she claims. Doesn't like roughing it! ;)

Your auction for A Fire Familiar lvl 26,220 has sold for $20,000.

QBSefton [Black Cheetah Bazaar] September 13 2006 11:52 AM EDT

That was me on that bargain buy :)

Now I have a decent loaner for new players :)

QBSefton [Black Cheetah Bazaar] September 13 2006 1:55 PM EDT

Beleg's just popped, so it is not broke, although had I been watching the store for it, it would have been a large fizzle vs. a nice fat corn pop like I was expecting :)
