    very nice

    hope the owner has a gazzillion accts to hold the gold

    although i feel "someone" needs to look into that, has to be "friends" proxy bidding

    *goes to check history from sellers and bidders*, bet you find them bidding before

    NO-ONE goes from 1billion to 2 billion just like that

    The 2b bid is already fake.

    Yes it would seem strange for a castle to sell for over 2billion...ive seen castles struggle for 400m of late..then again people are paying over 50m for single pieces of 'rubble' ..so i guess anything is posible knowadays......crazy.....

    Absolutly ridiculous. How can someone get to such an amount of money. And keeping it. 2 billionen are 2 000 checks รก 1.000.000 gold.
    Well, alright. It is possible.. just like selling 100 +20 magery ps or 100 of these nice aprons. And just one house to keep all the checks.
    Still... too much money in one hand, imho.

    It is very possible indeed.. I know of at least one person with that sort of money in gold.

    You can simply store it on vendors, nobody doing trades of that kind of scale would transfer each invididual cheque by hand, rather, they'd take it out of their vendor by transferring either 100 or 125 million at a time and then buy an item for that price of the other person's vendor.

    The past few Tram castles went for around 400-500m on nice locs. Fel ones went for a bit less. I'd imagine that the Vesper castle would fetch more than the 500m mark.
    This is a great location, but it's still fel. Even a prime location big vendor house in Luna on Atl would fetch less. I know several people with enough cash. None of them would spend 2b on a castle though.

    Anyway, the 2b bid is bogus.

    PS: max price for a vendor item is 100m.

    The bids by maco... viconia and sandys, friend are fake, [all 3 of which i know] he doesnt have that sort of money[not even 100 mil] it was purely to push the price up...
    Uo auction was informed... hence it is being monitored

    good luck mate, nice if you get it

    sadly rmcdonnell is the fake proxy bidder to keep prices rising, now that the devs are watching hopefully the "friends" will stop so you can grab it at a good price

    Such is the job of the hard working UO-Auction2 staff.
    We Never Sleep... Ok, we do, but we check every auction, and recheck every auction, and recheck our recheck and so on.
    Wonderful job, long hours, no pay, and the compliements??

    What did you expect anyway?

    uoauction2 is not even an auction site, if you wanted to do some useful work you'd get rid of the reserve options, and clean all those "first bid wins" auctions.

    If you have reservations about how the site is run take them to their boards please, not ours.

    This thread has played fast and loose with RoC long enough I think.
