Hey does it constitute abuse if i sell a high level item/moar file to a low level newbie just for the heck of it?

Nope, I did things like that all the time. So long as it’s not in exchange for BPs, you’re fine.

I put up 4 “delete all your files.exec” for sale at one time, and of them one was confiscated for ‘abuse’. How is that even possible?

So this guy ( http://forumwarz.com/profiles/quangntenemy ) has a script going on which bids right after you a little higher, so buying from kyobai is impossible. The script is in use with auctions concerning low price equippable items.

There’s one auction abused by him, I don’t have urls for the others but Im sure you administrators and moderators can check up his auction history.

It isn’t a script and it’s perfectly legal. If you bid higher than the minimum bid and you’re the highest bidder, kyoubai will auto-bid for you, if someone bids higher than your current bid, until it reaches your bid.

If it’s not against the rules it ought to be. BP are only supposed to be BUYABLE with real money.

what’s the problem anyway, somewhere, someone, bought the bp’s

where they go afterwards doesn’t really matter, since people whos exchanging bp’s for flezz, is probably gonna do it again, and people who’s using flezz to get bp is probably not going to buy them with real money.

if there’s a problem with this then the gift bp option would have been removed a lng time ago, but that would make people buy less bp, since it’s a social tool

I don’t see what everyone is being so anal about BP and flezz for. If someone wants to give BP to someone else the can do it if they damn well please. Who the f*ck cares if he “gave” him flezz or not. Forumwarz is still making money from the BP that was bought to begin with.

And another thing is I noticed the buyout price for a cheap item can’t be really high which is bull****. It’s an auction meaning prices can should go as high as people are willing to bid on it or if there stupid enough to “buy it now” for an outlandish price so be it.

I’ve lost about 4-5 auctions now due to abuse and because of my trying to get to the top of the best bidder Leaderboard and how I’ve been playing up until now, I’m skimming having no Flezz at all most of the time, especially since I Gamble for Antifreeze as well. What makes things more bothersome is that ET has told me in a TM that since it was closed you don’t even get credit from buying from that person even though Flezz transfer abuse and the Best Bidder Leaderboards are completely separate.

Personally I’d just like to know the exact “auction closed” amount, then I wouldn’t try to outbid Xoid for some piece of junk because the seller is unique, at least not after a certain point.

One of my auctions got flagged for abuse. It was for a toy eyeball of all things…

I always put up my cheap junk with no reserve to boost my Auctioneer ranking…so it’s not like i was demanding a crazy price.

The tubmail message you get is totally unenlightening. I have no idea why the auction was closed.

In this case of course, who cares it’s 4 flezz, but it left me wondering, and hoping whatever it is doesn’t happen again with a valuable item.

It would be nice if it told you the exact cause, or a short list of common reasons.

But why don’t put a game limit for every object insted of pulling it till abuse? I mean.. I dunno what you should do with java/c++ whatever you use, but if you set, for example, that an object can’t be sold in kyoubai for more than the 10% of his established price, this will prevent any abuse, and the auction, instead of closing for abuse, would stop to that price, the auctioneer would take fleez and the other player would take the object..

Only 1 real problem about this.. Once everybody learn how to handle it, players with more money will own the auctions, just bidding always the higher amount.. But the problem of abusing would be solved..

Another suggestion (always linked to the problem about owning the auctions) would be to put a limit in buying objects too low for your lvl.. Ok this is harder just because you need to create smth like “objects levels” btw would be a solution.. Or instead of levels, just put restriction that links “level of player” to “value of object”; i.e. a player of level XX can’t bid on objects which value is less or equal to XXXX..

Anyway take it easy, just some thoughts..
