    I think it´s quite strange that NEVERDIE overbidded himself with 5k PED to make the price 90k... hmmh

    Congrats to the winners! May they see a positive ROI someday. :)

    More Mships on the auction soon, maybe?

    well when first 2 sold was 5k cheaper so someone could have been tempted to bid since 5 mins were remaining...

    or he just wanted to pay "market" price? guess we need to ask him :)

    Edit:
    Asked ND his reply was, "So no one else would"

    Actually I see this happen quit a bit in auctions, where people bid twice in a row... I think to try to scar off other bidders... I wanted an apartment and person did this to me and scared me off... so it does work.

    I've seen it many times too and IMO the only thing the bidder ends up accomplishing is playing more for something that necessary, a particularly stupid tactic IMO.. That said though, it can also sometimes be purely by mistake as the person meant to bid higher and then realised they can clicked too soon and so ends up having to outbid themselves (i've done this when intending to buyout something and forgot to click up to the BO) In either instance, good luck to the seller! :)

    There is a MA Mothership, the 3 that have been won and now 3 sold on auction and one pending. So a total of 8 ships. Now, I suspect MA will only release maybe 8 more? Mind you, if they keep selling at 90K each, MA may have many more to come!

    Cheers

    People, Listen very carefully, I shall say this ONLY ONCE.

    DO NOT start the NEVERDIE-this/NEVERDIE-that squabbling/flaming/arguments here. I will not have this forum turning into a quagmire of insults, pointless flaming and immature nonsense that other areas have in the past - What other forums allow is up to them entirely. The subject has been beaten to death and I'm not having PAF infected with the same idiocy shown elsewhere.

    IF MA disapproves of anything anyone does then it is up to them to approach that person or persons, for them do something about it and for them to release an official statement about it afterwards.

    This is the one and only warning I am going to issue on this subject. Any thread containing this nonsense will be deleted and people deliberately going out of their way to start trouble will start finding themselves banned very quickly.

    Now, unless there is further constructive discussion going to happen here, I will be closing this thread. OP you have the choice to request it closed at any time.

    What double bidding shows is that you have at least double the amount of money on your card then the first bid and this might suggest you are willing to go a long way for that item.

    Agreed, here's how I saw it....
    The 1st mothership was being battled for at around 90k, it would be reasonable to assume that whoever lost that battle would shift their bid to another mothership, by raising his bid to 90k ND may have redirected that bidders attention to the ship that deathifier was bidding on (85k) seems like a reasonable tactic to me irrespective of the ppl involved. also... wot razer said:)

    I thought it didn't need to have "double" to outbid yourself anymore. I'm pretty sure that's been changed.

    however, there is some psychological impact from double bidding. it's suppose to show that you're serious. however, results vary.

    I usually just laugh when I see it, and if interested, respond with a significant bid increase.

    Wow that is a huge price drop. Might even grab one myself if they keep dropping like that.
