    Black Market Timer?

    So I logged on to check out the Black Market Auction House at 10:13Pm and lo and behold, the Drake of the South Wind is up there.

    Auction time says, "Short, Less than 30 minutes."

    Okay, so I figure some time in between now and 10:42, that drake will be mine or someone else's.

    Bidding commences, up, up, up...

    I put in a bid at 10:41:58 figuring I'm golden, but I figured wrong. The auction kept going until 10:50 something, well beyond the "less than 30 minutes" listed when I first checked in.

    What gives?

    Simple. You can't snipe at the last second. The time extends when a new bid is placed. This isn't even the first time this has been brought up: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...tes-50-minutes

    Not to sound negative, but isn't a given that auctions extend when someone bids? It would be a crappy design if people could snipe at the last second, without the other bidder to have a chance to respond with a new offer.

    It's not always 100% accurate even when no one else is bidding, but yes someone outbid you and it got extended.
