Now there has been quite some talk about beating the competition with buying out their auctions, and listing for higher. "Owning the market". "Bullying the competitors". No matter what you call it, you can win.....or lose. I guess it comes down to who is the better bettor...I say I had good odds today. Read on, young whippersnappers....
Yup. Sold em all out. And who was the buyer? You guessed it. So what's an Alto to do? Try it again....I buy two stacks, put them on the AH, and what do I get?
But it couldn't be...not again....This time I will give you two guesses, and I imagine you will get it on the first try....(change of subject quick...does anyone listen to Directv music channels? It's really funny, but Sabotage from Beastie Boys is playing right now. Kinda fits...Hahahaha.) Alright, back to my post...Where was I? Oh yeah, Guess who????
Now don't get me wrong, this style of AH'ing can work to your advantage, but I don't recommend doing it in this form. I mean, a month'ish ago when I posted my original article on selling these, I noted that they really only sell on weekends, I can normally sell them for around 2-3 gold each, pulling in 40ish gold profit per 20 stack. But within an hour, I sold 60 to one guy. All due to his "bully" tactic.
To all reading this, you have probably done this or been a "victim" of AH bullying yourself. At some point. It happens quite a bit with the Mysterious Fortune Cards, but once again, they are "limited" crafts. Normally, your competition will only have limited amounts, so you can use and abuse as much as you desire (or feel you are able to "risk"). Did I mention crafted goods sell quite often? These powders do not have the demand to play this game. He is going to have to sell a few weekends worth of these to just "hit" what he lost to me in an hour by trying to "bully" me out.
Now I could be completely wrong in this whole post, and wasted both mine and your time, maybe he had a hidden agenda that I wasn't aware of or haven't seen....but I doubt this.
I want to end this post by saying thanks to my unscrupulous bully, and let them know that at any time, they can feel free to "donate" to the Alto Fund. Thank you sir. Or madam.
