    I cringed. Unfortunate for the bidder.

    I can definitely understand how someone could screw up a bid like this. Especially if you don't use the BMAH often. But even once you know how to use it it can bug out. It bugs for me all the fucking time and I need a UI reload to sort it out. Luckily I was only spending 2-3k on brawlers guild invites!

    Seen people mistakenly bidding on items like this before, the hot item window just sucks.
    Clearly that's the Spanish word for Hollandaise and they were planning a soiree.
    Your comments are duly noted and ignored.

    this is something I can't understand. I'm no genius, but I've never ever ever had any trouble using the BMAH interface. I bough a BG's invitation and 6 t3 pieces there already. but I'm always broke. right now I have 1k on my bags, 10k on my hunter alt to buy her last t3 piece (the pants, I won't buy the bracers).

    how can people who can't even figure the interface out be goldcapped when I can't ever even reach 35k?

    Ouch! That really has to suck.

    I'm sure though that he'd be able to contact a Game Master and get a refund, in such extreme circumstances.

    Mate lost T3 warrior chest to someone buying it for his lvl 60 alt because he couldn't rebid while in raid when it expired. The prat buying it bought it on his hunter thinking he could mail it to his alt. When he found out he couldnt he ticketed a GM and the GM returned his gold and destroyed the chest, thereby fucking my mate over in the process.

    People need to read that shit before they bid.

    Depends on the GM you get and how polite you are really. They can do it, but they're not obligated to, if they feel you're worth the effort then they will.

    I thought this thread was about legendaries on the BMAH.

    We deal a lot with that stuff at my company, and as an example, in a real world, something similar in a online bank interface could end in a real court...

    EDIT: With this I'm not saying that players shouldn't be accountable for their mistakes and that blizzard is to blame for everything that is wrong! Just saying that from the point of Design (and this is something I know what i'm talking about) you as a company should and must develop it to avoid bad usage, malpractices but also serious mistakes. If the interface is confuse and instead of helping players it tricks players to bid on wrong items, then it's bad design...

    The hot item is a big and visible box... the items are almost always, the crappy ones...

    the box you want and the bid button you want is more hidden...

    in summary, If you lack a bit of focus when looking at the interface you feel compelled to put the price and press bid on wrong places... Interfaces should be obvious!
    Atm its very easy to make a mistake...

    People get excited, hasty and put a bid on the "hot item" which really should be the mount not the brawler's invite.

    Now that's what you call an Epic Fail!

    Jokes aside, BMAH UI needs improvements. It's very clunky especially compared to the normal AH, which needs some improvements too tbh.

    there are a dozen or half invitations at any time, the Hot Item should only be the unique ones, not the homogeneous goods.

    I really hope he can get his money back. I miss-bid on the stupid broom pet over my t3 helm, and they just said "tough s**t." I was mad, but if I did something as cataclysmically wrong as that, I would have to server transfer and change my name to avoid the hate. lol

    Everyone makes mistakes.Myself the first but what I really dont understand from that picture is....the 980k bid on invicible?

    Are you wiiling to pay 980k but not 999.999 g? are you willing to risk being outbid by 19k g and lose the auction on a 1million bid?

    w...t......f....

    In my opinion, the BMAH should be revamped...you put in the maximum Amount of gold you would pay for the itemand as long as no one else outbids your max offer, you stay top of the list. That way you still may put your bet on the wrong item, but as long as no one else would bid that much money on that particular item you don't lose nearly as much money as you would with the system they use now.

    Maybe he didn't have more than 980k. It's possible that he had let's say 880k and all he could borrow from friends was 100k and 980k has better chance that 880k to get mount.

    No, that bidder doesn't risk anything.
    The point is that if the bid is higher then 960k or smth (don't remember the exact sum), it cannot be outbidden, as you can't have more than 1mln (minus 1 c) gold on hand, and the interface would't accept lower bids (like if you wanted to bid 980001 gold on that invincible 980000 bid)
