Go with the big list.

Is the big list likely to get updated again? Because I went through the whole thing, and it would be cool if latecomers such as myself could reap the last-minute benefits.

Nice! Good luck.

I, for one, have just had no luck at all with the damn Twitter contests.

Today's Twitters have been especially brutal. :(

Dunno, I won 2 of them today, and am hoping for a third. :) I wouldn't call that brutal.

How do you do that =/

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

I've won 26, 29, and 30.

As I said previously in this thread, I just go for something funny. I've won 3 of the 7 I've entered.

Like many others, I've been trying to accumulate points while waiting for the average price of the auction items to drop just enough to reach affordability. However, I kept wondering: is the fact that everyone can still accumulate points preventing the winning bids from dropping significantly? So based on an idea from a member at the Bioware forums, I made a graph of the first 220 winning bids (we're just a little over halfway through the auction):

Posted Image

Although the linear trend line (red) appears to slope downward slightly--indicating that auction prices are dropping--that's probably greatly affected by that initial stratospheric computer bid (16000+ points). The yellow trend line shows a moving average based on grouping the data into sets of 48. On that line, you can clearly see a dip, followed by a slight RISE in auction prices again. I think the continuing accumulation of points through challenges/referrals is going to keep the auction prices pretty steady, rather than dropping by any significant amount. Bad news for those like me, who were hoping the whole thing would eventually bottom out. : (

I could be dead wrong, but if you found this interesting or informative, please click my link:

I went through the last few pages and clicked, some clicks from everyone would be greatly appreciated, even though I doubt I'll be able to get enough points in time to be able to win an auction.

Thanks for the help everyone, won myself a hard drive. I'll click y'all again tomorrow, good luck.

With regards to average price, I'd bet it only goes up from here, as people who've been holding out for something better give in and try to get mid-level items, pushing all prices up. Not everyone will wait for the last computer to drop. I'd get in as soon as possible (that was my strategy today), because desperation will kick in tomorrow.

The problem for me is that I haven't even been able to get in a single desperation bid due to being outbid before I even hit the button and have it tell me my bid wasn't high enough. Right now I'm sitting on 8910 points, which is still ~600 points away from even having a chance at winning anything.

Out of curiosity I added the clicks I've still accumulated since I won to the sum of my winning bid.

I was definitely getting outpaced in point collecting.

I've still been sending out my 10,1 point clicks to everybody.

Awesome, managed to win a comic pack!

congrats :D

Looking at the auction history and the amount of points I had at the time there's only been one item that I could have won. The pair of Mass Effect books that went for 8800 something. However, I already have and have read both. I assume that was the case with most people.

Can someone help me out?

I won this auction:

http://social.biowar...iew.php?auct=45

The problem is, I live in Florida and they won't ship to Florida. Before I won, I thought this was for the entire US, but now I find out it's void in New York and Florida.

If someone outside of those 2 states can let me use their address, I'll pay for shipping to my address.
