When I place a bid on an item that is lower than the maximum bid somebody else has set, their bid does not increase to beat mine. At least, I’ve encountered this problem on at least one auction.

This is problematic for a few reasons:

1) It’s confusing. eBay doesn’t work this way, and really everybody’s expectations about how “internet auctions” are supposed to work are based on eBay’s proxy bidding. I kept bidding the same bid over and over again, to see if this was a bug. If your max bid is 200,000 and I bid 100,000 the current high bid should at least have to beat 100,000.

2) It removes the opportunity to use the auction house as a griefing vector.

3) It’s open to abuse. Any person on top of the flezz board could win any auction at reserve price by bidding more flezz than anybody else in the game has.

4) Not punishing people for nuclear bidding is full of fail.
