Black Market auctions may not always end at the scheduled end time due to the Anti-Snipe feature.
What is the Anti-Snipe feature?
If a player bids within 1 minute of a Black Market auction end, the server extends the auction by 5 minutes. Multiple Anti-Snipe extensions can occur for a single auction. Extensions will continue to happen until nobody bids during the Anti-Snipe period, or the next scheduled auction begins.
The Anti-Snipe feature exists to discourage last-second bids from being placed to guarantee a win. We believe this helps keep things fair. If someone would be willing to bid more than the last bid, it gives them a chance to do so without the clock running out.
How many items are auctioned?
Monday through Friday, each auction has 1 item. On Saturdays and Sundays, each auction allows players to bid on 3 separate items.
What are the starting bid and bid increments?
Currently, for each item, the starting bid is 15k, and the bid increment is 1k. In the future, we may adjust these values and/or set them individually for each item.
What are some useful Black Market commands?
Allows players to claim the items they won from an auction if they had a full inventory or were offline when they won
Displays the amount of time until the next auction begins
