I've been saving up for a good item, and i threw all my gold at an item i liked. The auction is still going so i masked the item. But i am confused about how i can be outbid by a lower amount of gold, the picture below will illustrate what i mean:
Is anyone able to explain to me what is going on?
Thanks in advance, Kasper.
The issue is that your bid needed to be 525,000,000 or higher (5% higher than the current highest bidder.)
The reason your bid of 520m didn't outbid the 500m bid was because the 500m person bid before you did.
If you had bid 520m first, he would need to bid 520m * 1.05 = 546m to outbid you.
