Mr. Chairman Ignoring His Rules? (in General)


FailBoat[SG] October 19 2008 4:30 AM EDT

So we have recently had the issue of the Rofl Gloves, also known as the Gloves of Mercy, come into issue of the uselessness, is that even a word? Reviewing past auctions of them, because I thought mine were getting on the high priced side, I noticed something.

Auction A:

A Pair of Gloves of Mercy [0] $95,000 $1,605 Oct 17

Won by Talion. At about what their worth has become as of recent.

Auction B:

A Pair of Gloves of Mercy [0] $115,474 $1,605 Oct 17

But yet here IA was overbid by Mr. Chairman when IA's bid was 110k.

Same day, probably within an a few hours of each other. What makes CB bid on Auction B while letting Auction A go at the lower rate?

Different throw of the dice?

I was debating staying up and seeing how much Mr. Chairman was willing to pay, but then I got tired and went to bed. Maybe next time.

"Different throw of the dice?" -Bartjan

But yet I thought Mr. C went upon a specific ruleset for how he bid? When did a Random Number Generator become wether he decides to bid?

Everything in this game has some kind of randomness in it...

Mr. Chairman is a prong.

also, the fact that the chairman has bought many of the recent auctions may have let him know that the perceived value of GoM was a bit high... ~_^
