Well I had a sorta theory on the price...

1. I wanted to see what people would voluntarily pay without a prerequisite of previous market value

2. I thought setting under TT would get some interest/bids from the resellers since historical prices were higher.

3. It was cheaper by a few pecs (ok not in the long run of course ;) )

4. I was being stupid ;)

but really, I hate TT'ing stuff and I hope whoever got it either wanted it or at least resells.

If people are TT'ing stuff then MA are failing at balance if you ask me.

I do that with every one of my auctions. For almost everything I place on there:

  • SB is next full ped, so even if it sells for min. the auction fees are covered.
  • BO is a price I deem "fair" based on current other auction activities.
  • Always 7-days

And whenever it sells and whatever I get for it is fine w/ me. :) (I get my BO almost all the time though, so I figure buyer & seller are both happy w/ transaction.) But yes, occasionally had "valuable" stuff go for "under market", but no worries.

yeh this is mainly what I do. Only exception I can think of was a looted L vehicle part BP I got on VU day. I put that in on a one day auction as figured the uba crafters would be keen to get going.

Lesson 2: The house always wins, and loves players that play more loose then others.

I hope you get a nice HoF to compensate for that donation you made to MA bottom line ;)
