[Fixed] AH Bidding Bug (in General)

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 21 2010 11:21 AM EDT

Increase your bid to 677847 (You have $3,468,411)

* $747,326 BabySammich ( Pierce the Veil )
* $711,739 Sentinel ( Sentinel )
* $677,847 (max bid: $677,847) bid by {Wookie}-Fame.Vr- ( Blightning )

Usually when you click "increase your bid" it's defaulted to the lowest amount you can bid higher than the previous bid depending on how the auction is set up.

The last few days it's been defaulting to an original bid.

For instance, I bid 2,000 on a base tattoo yesterday, was outbid, when trying to bid higher, it was trying to bid 2,000 as an "increased bid"

When trying to "increase your bid" this error comes up:
"Error Placing Bid
* This bid does not meet the minimum bid of 784692 (If you saw a lower minimum on the auction page, then it simply means someone has bid before you.)"

That one is quite annoying. I had forgotten about it as I haven't used auctions in quite a while.

Added it to known issues.

How long has this been going on? I don't remember seeing this until recently (last few days).

It's been going on since I started playing CB. So, whenever that was.

Yes, we were passing in high_bid instead of min_bid for the form for increasing your bid. Fixed.
