    Gold Rush 2015 - Auction
    Event Starts: 13th November 2015

    Attention Gold Rush Enthusiasts

    The Gold Rush fever is upon Planet Arkadia once again and it brings about with it an Arkoin Auction.
    Prepare your bids because there will be fierce competition.

    Rules
    1. A variety of items will be periodically auctioned during the Arkadia Gold Rush 2015.
    2. The auctions will occur entirely here, on Planet Arkadia Forum, and not in the in-game auction system.
    3. Bids will only be accepted in Arkoins.
    4. Minimum bid increment 1000 Arkoins.
    5. Bids of any items other than Arkoins (eg PED) will be deemed invalid.
    6. For each item being auctioned:
      • The item will feature in a new auction thread of its own
      • That auction will be announced in this thread, with a link
      • The auction will begin when it is listed
      • There will be no buyout bid amount
      • For the first four (4) weeks after the relevant auction thread is published, the auction will remain open.
      • After the first four weeks, the auction will then end when a bid remains the top bid for a period of 48 hrs
      • Such a 48 hr period will be taken to have begun no earlier than four (4) weeks after the auction thread is published
      • The winner is required to contact Mathias | Arkadia to arrange for trade or collection of auctioned item, within one week of the end of the auction.
      • If the winner of the auction fails to collect their award within the aforementioned one week of the end of the auction, the item will be awarded to the next highest bidder.
    7. The potential issue has been raised that somebody could bid a million bajillion Arkoins that they don't have, with the plan of winning the auction, not claiming their prize, and having the prize go to their friend, the second bidder with a very small bid.
      • This is a great point, and we appreciate it having been raised.
      • Arkadia Studios will at its discretion check that interesting bids are backed by an actual Arkoin balance.
      • Arkadia Studios will announce a bid to be invalid on such grounds if deemed necessary.
      • Please note, "million bajillion" is not a real number, though legitimate attempts to bid this high are of course encouraged.
      • Bidders must have the Arkoins in their possession as spot checks will be made by Arkadia Studios/Mindark
    8. To avoid potential confusion, all bidders must ensure that their full in-game avatar name is visible by stating it in the actual bid post with the amount of Arkoins that they are bidding with.
    9. Prizes will be sent after the end of Gold Rush 2015 (estimated mid December 2015).
    To begin with, we are pleased to announce that the following items will be auctioned during the Gold Rush 2015 Auction!

    1 x Hydra Armor Set (M)
    Starting Bid - 50000 Arkoins

    1 x Hydra Armor Set (F)

    With that said, best of luck to one and all. When the event starts it will be announced across all media platforms. So get your Arkoins now and get ready for the Gold Rush 2015

    Based on the OP I am assuming there will be some additional items added to the auction later. I suspect there might be some Koroma bps included since a second set of Ankitus bps is currently being auctioned.

    Please consider including some weapon bps in the Gold Rush auction:
    • Some weapon bps (UL) appear to have never dropped - eg ASI-0, asi-32D, LAW-75A. You can see they span a variety of levels and costs to click. It should be relatively easy for PP to confirm which are yet to drop.
    • Some weapon bps are held my only one person. Now I wouldn't normally advocate breaking monopolies but clearly the precedent has been set with the decision to release a second set of Ankitus. I know of one player who refuses to sell the sole bp for a weapon but who appears to have stopped crafting other than for personal use.
    • Some weapon bps only have L variants and the drop rate on the L bps so low that it;s impossible to provide any sort of conisistant supply so people just stop looking for them. And that leaves some SIB gaps for some of the Herman ranges. Please consider issuing UL versions of these bps and making space in the Arkadian Weapon Crafting book.

    The individual auction threads (linked in the OP) are for bidding only to make it as easy as possible for everyone, if anyone got any additional questions or other issues take it through PM to me directly or post them in this thread.

    I would like to ask for an official rule clarification.

    If I have 500,000 Arkoins, am I allowed to bid on every open thread to a limit of 500,000, or am I expected to only bid a maximum of 500,000 arkoins across all open current threads where I am the current highest bidder?

    Thank you.

    You are supposed to have enough Arkoins to cover all of your current bids
