he did put his max $6 and $7 bid on them... he didn't want to pay what they're worth either because its "CHEAP ass gamer", but thought they were worth more than the other guy did.


You're not getting me. He bid on those games. According to his "point", he'd have put the maximum amounts on them that he'd be willing to spend the FIRST time he bid on them, right?

No.

He was outbid, and then tried to slip in higher bids on those games after being outbid.

He wasn't above bidding less than his max, either.

What's my point? He had no point. He tried to justify his tactics with B.S.. And his tactics were fair play, yes. But why not go to eBay for that? I'm going to guess the prices are about the same within a dollar or two, and why bother trying to slap a whole bunch of people in the face by hiding behind a cloak while they're trying to be honest and straight-forward? Where's the benefit?

Vulgarism - bidding early in an auction is the worst thing to do, because that makes the price go up more than bidding in the end because people have more time to bid higher. that is valid here and on ebay and it makes sense what he did.

PlayableMoogle - explain? i'm confused by what you mean.



So you're saying everybody should just save their bids for the last hours? I've won many items because I've bid low on the first or second day, and I've lost some. That's just how it is, but most of the time... I've lost the items with more than seven minutes left...


Also, I really don't remember this much shit going down with Phoenix's lowball, the Child's Play lowball, Ultimate Lowball, any of Handsome's lowball sales... Mainly, because nobody just randomly came in and shit on everybody else within the closing minutes.


Well, I didn't lose anything. But, I feel for everybody who were so close to getting their items, then out of nowhere, had to scramble to see what he bid on and possibly ended up losing their items. Thankfully, Punkmaggit ran it a little later. I appreciate he took a little extra time.

I actually bid on Bushido Blade earlier and surprise was outbid when I checked on it around 10:30 tonight. I copied everything I wanted (that was attractively priced) over to word in the order I wanted it, followed the bids and placed my bid. Maybe I should've put the titles in but unfortunatley that's not what I did.

If you had "copied everything" you wanted, it would have included the names.



Just fucking walk away with whatever you won with your tail between your legs, you made a lot of enemy's tonight.

I choose not to believe that not including the titles was an accidental oversight. If others choose to believe it, that's on them.

On a separate, lighter note, we haven't heard from punkmaggit in a while, and the poor chap has all but been forgotten while he's undoubtedly trying to dechiper which of neiname's numbers and bids correspond to which of his items!

Punkmaggit, this is the first of these things I've participated in or paid attention to, and I think you did a quality job. I liked the clearly-laid-out rules, the obvious, diligent work you did with keeping things up-to-date, and I'm coming away extremely impressed and enthusiastic about future (and on-going) lowballs, so thanks a lot. I'm looking forward to giving you some cash-money in exchange for a strategy guide to a game I've beaten a dozen times already!

Damn, I forgot you changed the end date to tonight. I was going to outbid on a few items. Ah well.

Also, why is everyone getting butt hurt over sniping? Not his fault you don't know the item numbers ahead of time. Sniping is kind of expected in any auction.

Even though it was an asshole move, you got to admit it was clever. It may have confused other people counter-biding him. I'm just stating my opinion and low balls are a great way to pick up games even though I only placed a bid on one item. :)

So you underbid trying to get a deal and get upset when someone bids higher than you. Why didn't you just bid the most you wanted to pay and be done with it. If someone sniped you or outbid you at the end it's because they wanted to pay more than you did. What's Bushido Blade 1 and 2 worth? ($30-40) yet you had the balls to leave a $4 and $5 bid out there and expect to not be outbid? Final Fantasy III is at least $27-30 and you leave a $17 bid hanging out there. Do not condem my tactics when you are trying to pay less than you are willing to pay hoping that someone doesn't come and outbid you.


tl;dr.

But I did decipher it to be "I'm a douchebag and deserve to be shot in the face" if that's what you meant...

Anyway, enough of my time has been wasted with this moron already.

OP, just wanted to thank you for an enjoyable first time lowball experience. I had a lot of fun reading what other people in this thread have been posting, etc. I really like the kind of community we have going here, except for the once-in-awhile scum.. (see above).

Thanks again OP and good luck with everything!

In regards to how neiname handled it, I figured there'd be a couple of people who would come along at the last minute and try and snipe up everything. Hence, I deliberately closed it a few minutes after 8:00 to give people a second chance and bid again. Reiniku got in just in the nick of time and I was pleasantly pleased to see bvharris get the FFIII he's been defending all week.

All the items have been updated so you can see what each person has won! I'll be tallying up the totals + shipping and will update the front page as soon as that's done. Congratulations to everyone who won something and a very heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who participated. Honestly, I couldn't have guessed that it'd end this well. My wife is beyond ecstatic and we'll be able to pay off a HUGE chunk of our credit card bill. :applause:

Haha, the last 45 mins in here have been a fun read. This isn't the only time bids have been placed like that in lowballs. It sucks, but it happens, and it's up to punkmaggit to specify if something like that isn't allowed. I just keep the list of all the items I'm interested in with numbers included so things like that don't affect me. I guess everybody learned a lesson.

Besides, it's not too difficult to right click the first page and open it in a new tab to check.

Great lowball Punkmaggit, I hope this helps out :)

Im a bit disappointed with all of the pissing and moaning about a previously absent sniper, but really... if people wanted an item they would have been put their max up front... give it their all... because this auction is also to help the seller. Its not like there wasnt a good 7 minutes before the end and people kept an eye (or should have) on the items they REALLY wanted.

I checked it in the last five mins myself, but I couldn't muster the funds to get what I wanted.

I was done with this, but I resent the implication that I (and others) don't care about helping punkmaggit. These lowballs are always a spot to get a great deal, but I also like being able to help out fellow CAGs who need the cash.

I'm about to send 138 bucks to him, so it kind of annoys me that you seem to be implying I might be only in it for myself. I sucked it up and paid 7 extra bucks for something he bid on, and had no problem doing it. I don't really appreciate you trying to call people who were bidding here all week trying to help him out and excusing someone who came in and sniped. Ass backwards.

(My god these node errors are ridiculous!)

No, I read the posts and understand the situation just fine. It's true that I can't grasp why people are angry, since auctions and sniping go hand in hand and there should be expectation of it.

I'm not defending his tactics, it's just ridiculous of people to get so angry over something that could have been defended against very easily. Hell he did it with two minutes left, plenty of time to put in higher bids. Apparently I'm the only one that copies the whole listing into Notepad (item number, title) and then just change the bid amount.

Perhaps for future lowballs the rules should require posting the whole title with the bid?

This is sensible, and I think the right solution.

When/if I have my lowball, I'll not only have a random endtime but also say that after a specified time (say the last 6 hours or so), all bids must include the item name to be accepted. That seems fair.
