I'm just really annoyed by the snipeguard in auctions. i wish they were not there, they make everything harder. if you want to bid on something to get it, it adds more time so that you probably wouldn't get it. i've had problems with it and i hate the snipeguard

Well, I imagine its purpose is to avoid people "sniping" the auction by waiting until the very last second to place a bid, which effectively steals it. It's annoying, but it's made to keep things fair.

iirc the snipeguard has already received some balancing and gets shorter as the bids get higher; personally I feel like, while it can be annoying to have to wait, it'd also be equally annoying if not more to have an item snatched away from you because someone prepared themselves to place their bid exactly 1 second before the auction's end

Yeah like say you were one second from getting your dream pixpet and you think you got it so you logged of, but it turns out someone else got the egg. I think that pixpet could fix this by making it so 10 second before the auction ends you can't bid on it.
I also want to point out it can be really annoying when for you a action might end at, lets say, 2:00 am but for someone else it ends at, 9:00 am and you don't want to pull an all nighter for a online gamebut you want your pixpet, its not fun.

yes, maybe so its fair, I sometimes stay up rlly late to get a pixpet i want (which my neighbors do not appreiciate) and then someone steals it away from me. I had to log on and log of over and over again bc of the snipeguard to make sure I got the corroded copper noo-long fountain in by backyard. BECAUSE OF THE SNIPEGUARD!!

Yes and I know that someone in my timezone would not appreciate if I stayed up all night to bid on a pixpet they really wanted, another thing I don't like about auctions.

if you couldn't bid the last 10 seconds before the auction ends we would have the same issue the snipe guard is trying to prevent. people would just wait until 11 seconds and snipe it then



also snipe guard is to prevent servers from getting confused and lagging and stuff if so many people try to snipe at the same second n shit, as well as prevent that
