@PartyFerret: Don't worry man, I don't know where those assumptions about bots and loans and such came from but they got quelled. I think people are just disappointed this got out of their reach. I mean, all of us want in the game but everyone has different means and priorities. You needn't defend yourself; rather, thank you for doing so much to support the game we love!

Hello I am IronBlueFox, Im not using a bot, nor am I getting a loan or going broke trying to get one of the two Furre slots.How that site works just like Ebay you bid then set your MAX price you will auto bid up to. I like the rest of you want my sona in this game and I am willing to pay for it. but I do have my limits which capped out at 500$ an due to my mistake last night I didn't raise my max bid in time.But what it comes down is this isn't a commission its bidding to be in the game and the person who pays the most gets it. I have nothing against anyone here.

$500 is probably the highest I'd have paid, if I ever decided to try to win a spot.
But the excessive price, the fierce rivalry, and Sigil's con-badge services mean that I can save that money for tattoos instead. (Speaking of our favorite demon goat, looking forward to a print of my card).
I don't blame people for trying to get into the game, but it's far more practical (for me) to invest my resources elsewhere. Five hundred can buy all kinds of things.

Well, that escalated quickly.
Nezumi12 on Sep 19th, 2014 @ 12:28 PM
wow... 51 t0 356. that's a huge jump. and currently at $500, which is way more than i could afford.
but it's nice to dream, right?
Lafitte on Sep 19th, 2014 @ 11:30 AM
Wow, this one's already higher than the first one! Weird.
ezekiel_tyr on Sep 19th, 2014 @ 11:28 AM
ps damn 500 >..> i think that will be like the final bid almost
RainbowKitten on Sep 19th, 2014 @ 07:36 AM
Tegome is correct. If you place a high bid, it shows the lowest amount for you to win. Then if someone goes above that amount, yours keeps autobidding for you until you reach your max bid. That's why (at least at the end), you should put your bid as the maximum amount you're willing to spend.
Seppel on Sep 19th, 2014 @ 06:01 AM
@Zeke: Everyone enters the highest they're willing to bid, then the system automatically places bids for you. :)

I asked before and I ask again, because jay r naylor furoticon does commissions?
he or she makes good drawings.
BlueJay on Sep 19th, 2014 @ 03:11 AM
In which case, the slot should be given to someone else.
Tegome on Sep 19th, 2014 @ 01:01 AM
If this is like any other online bidding service, the bid he made isn't the one displayed on the site. The site will autobid for him until someone bids higher than his actual bid.
Maybe he's willing to spend $100, but there's no point in bidding $100 if the next highest person bid $20, so the site says he bid, say, $21. Gotta beat his $100 (or whatever his original bid was) to actually outbid him.
King on Sep 19th, 2014 @ 12:40 AM
The guy probably set up a bot to auto bid against anyone who tries to outbid him and either has a lot of money to pay for an excessively high cost or is willing to take out loans to pay for it, solely so that he can have every open card as his own...disappointing really.
ezekiel_tyr on Sep 18th, 2014 @ 11:13 PM
ok so either im crazy or every time i place a bid this thing auto bids above me, so there is no point in me trying to bid if its gona be like this
ezekiel_tyr on Sep 18th, 2014 @ 11:10 PM
lets see how this card rolls :looks to see what the biddings at:
King on Sep 18th, 2014 @ 08:30 PM
Ah, well then, i will definitely bid next set.
Lafitte on Sep 18th, 2014 @ 08:16 PM
@King: Every set has a few characters in it that are actual players of the game. They do one of these auctions for every expansion, to help cover the cost of making the set.
Magetorment on Sep 18th, 2014 @ 07:21 PM
Yes King, winners of these auctions will get their character on a card that will be printed in the summer 2015 set.
King on Sep 18th, 2014 @ 07:18 PM
So, is the auction for the card or to get your character as a legal card?
