    "It appears other players are manipulating the purchase timers to buy items at base price from unwary sellers." Or something like that.

    That's an ole griefer tactic. Open the buy window and leave it open so others cant buy it and you can not re price it. it sucks.

    No. I just figured I would take to stratics in the false assumption that all my b****ing and moaning would magically reach mesanna's ears because as we all know, she and the other devs actively keep up with every single post on stratics.[/sarcasm]

    Ofcourse I did, lol. This thread, or atleast the original one, was more of a warning to the public that it was happening, what to watch out for and a reminder to always double check your stuff incase of things like this.
