I believe the Auction House should go back to the way it was! Who else agrees?!

Basically, I'm not sure if this idea has been presented before, or if anyone will actually like this idea, BUT here it is. I am open to constructive criticism, and if you really do not agree with this, then post and enlighten me

Forgive me for the bad images Not really a graphics design person haha but I hope that it conveys what I see in my head. ALSO, for the image where it displays the watched items, I feel that it isn't necessary to have a section next to bid which says "unwatch" as I feel that with the system where you can bid and not remove it, the same principles apply for the watch section.

The title of the thread pretty much explains it. When you click on the auction house, and you see an Item that you find at a fair price, or an item you really need and are willing to spend x amounts on it, next to "bid" is the option called "add to watch list" or something like that.

Basically what this will do, is say I see
boxing gloves misplaced for say $320,000 xD and I really want to see if I can get the best deal on it.. But it finishes in 36 hours and I won't be able to keep up with it and where it currently is in the auction house in terms on hours/minutes left, if I was to add this to watch list, it would send me an event as soon as the item hits 1 hour left. This will allow watching much wanted or needed items more easily as everyone wants to get things for a fair price nowadays.

You are sent ONLY 1 event and that is when the item has reached the 1 hour mark. The event might look something like this.
"The item "Boxing Gloves" that you have bided on in the Auction House is ending in one hour!"

In addition, this has quite bugged me where it stays on 1 hour left, and doesn't go down any more. I understand this is to probably create tension, HOWEVER, I feel that if a live countdown were to take place, like there is for your energy, happy and nerve for instance, it would create a much more competitive atmosphere for bidding and sellers would get at a far more better price for their unwanted items.

Also, I feel that people should be able to bid on at
LEAST 3 items. I think this whole thing about only being able to bid on 1 items is a bit ridiculous. Also, in 2008, a thread was posted announcing the update of the TEMPORARY 1 item bid. 4 years later, no change...

At the home screen of the auction house, if at least 1 item has been watched, then a box will appear above all, which will be listed as "watched items", displaying you with all the items you have watched, in order of which one will end sooner than the others. This will enable you to keep an easier track of that you have watched instead of having to search for all manually watched items through out the auction house. I would say there would have to be some sort of limit as to how many items you can watch at a time. Say 3 - 5 maybe?

However, I feel that in order to be able to get something such as this, a fair amount of
points have to be used to 'purchase' this benefit, just like 'City Watch'. IMO I think the required price for this should be 75 points? - (Not definite but let me know if you support this)

Thanks for reading. I'm open to ideas to help better this one, and I'm also open to criticism as to why you think this is a bad idea and won't happen

This idea isn't bad at all. It would remove the tediousness of having to remember when your item will be close to being sold. The only problem with this is I can see it cluttering up your event tab if your watching say 5 items for example and they all get done around the same time. Then you would have 5 individual events. Though it would be easy to fix this with just one event for all of them but I think you understand my point. I think instead of it being a watch list maybe it would just be a notification saying that someone out bid you and would take you to the item where you could bid again. Overall though I do like the idea this just sounds like something that would be added to the donater or subscriber perks.

It is not the unknown that is frightening, but when you think you truly understand it that will lead to your downfall.

I don't use the auction house anymore since getting the merit for 100 auction wins. However, I would have liked something like this. Maybe something that would put watched items in a category at the top of the auction house page. Basically instead of having to scroll down the page to that specific category the item would be right at the top of the page. It would also help when the last few minutes of an auction are coming up, and I want to refresh the page to see if I am indeed the final bidder.

Another quick fix to this would be to have real time countdown timers on each auction in the last hour.

I think these things along with an event would greatly increase the competition in the auction house, and would help sellers get a fair price for their items.

For the event list cluttering i have so much carp on there anyway it wouldn't matter however i think to make life simple the event should just be 'you have bid on an item in the auction house that expires in 1 hour' and that's it.

I like the idea, i hate the auction house as it is as i don't think it's used very much or diversely enough. 9/10 listings have the item 1-5% below bazaar cheapest etc so for all the hassle it isn't worth my attention.

Thanks I've updated my post with how many events will be sent and what it may look like.

IF anyone has any queries then I will be free to answer their question, possibly could lead to an update. Glad to see the idea is not hated.

Think this would be a great idea. It could go one step further and make it cost money/points to get this watch list added. Just like torn watch, racing etc it would be something a player needs to build towards to use.
