hunter, any idea if Nik is aware of the last minute steals of bids constantly going on, and is he working on anything to fix it, or is he turning a blind eye and focusing on other problems?
Oh I'm sure he's aware of it. Last minute sniping is an art form in TM which is the base for the FA system in TH.

Valhoun has a pretty good idea. What he suggested is essentially the way the "pay option bidding" works in TH. Not everything can/should translate over because the economies work differently. It would certainly force people to be more careful with their bidding.

There will still be some gamesmanship and bid sniping, it's inevitable. The goal should be to limit it and because anything that would totally remove it likely involves a very complex setup.
