Shop Purchased without Bid System

Post by Archnon » Tue Nov 23, 2021 1:40 am

Description of Bug Experienced:
I was able to purchase a shop inside the Golden Halls in Brog without using the bid system.

Character Name: Dalgur
Shop: South West Corner of the Golden Halls (Under New Ownership


Steps to reproduce the Bug:
Wait for the shop timer to expire.

Expected Result:
The shop begins taking bids (lottery) to determine the owner.

Actual Result:
The shop goes immediately for sale for the standard price.

Additional Information/Notes
This may be working as intended as certain shops may fall under the Settlement leadership to determine or something or other. I am just looking for clarification as I don't want to be accused of taking advantage of an exploit.

If you all want the shop to go for bidding, I am fine with that but I ask that you let me get the few Items i put in there to hold the shop. If I am permitted to keep it, please let me know as I will RP and gather some people to sell goods.

Would also dearly love clarification on which shops are bid and which aren't.

How much did the shop cost? If a shop's price is below a certain threshold it isn't subject to the bid system. I think it's 5000 or something like that.

Another thing - was it fresh for bidding or has just no one spotted it? If nobody places a bid, it then is instabought whenever someone does

This is also the case for the shops in Sibayad.

It seems that it is because this shop was under the 5000 gold cap for the bid system. It makes me think that the price for shops may not always reflect traffic but may reflect the time when the shop was added. In my case, a shop in the Halls in brog with way more traffic was cheaper than one outside that fell to the bid system. Maybe this is intentional. I don't know.
