    I've seen this player list things ridiculously high.

    Obviously, in my opinion his/her intention is to scam, by taking advantage from unknowledgeable players, with the hopes that these players buy items in a wrong price, or are influenced to buy.

    Of course, anyone can list anything for whatever price they want in auction. This isn't something STS bans for.

    I think it is not illegal, but legal. I guess he hopes that quick purchase in order to make more money.. no idea tho.
    A dream does not become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.

    Don't some people use the auction to transfer gold from one account to the other?
    Maybe I'm wrong but that's what I thought when I have seen overpriced stuff.
    In any case, best to look at prices before tapping.

    This type of scam is used a lot by this specific player. I was hoping this would be considered a scam since the item already has a price set by the developers. Would have been better for the player base if there are less legal scams going on

    Hi, it was me selling the item in the picture. Once and for all. This wasn't illegal, this isn't a type of scam or any gold transferring stuffs you've been making up. This is just me being smart unlike you guys. Bunch of amateurs psh.

    I really dont know what you mean by "price set by the developer". Why was it made tradeable then if the price is already set? Why is the "awake elixir" at store can be purchase for 5,000 gold but can also be bought in auction for 6,000-9,000 of gold? You really just look dumb making a thread ranting "please ban this player" just like any other users here. Idgaf

    What I mean is that that price is set at 10k and you overpriced it dozens of times more trying to rip someone off. And you call it smart. Lack of personality isn't smart. If you were smart then you would be making other investments instead of relying on pitful tactics.

    Is there any rules implemented that if a certain item that is tradable and has a fix price of 10k at a certain npc could only be sold for 10k still? Psh, i see you're the one lacking here. Attention seekers ranting useless stuffs or what should i call "noobs"

    Ifkr! Lots of players have been over reacting lately, i really see no difference from the ones that sell 2-3x the price for this. This jausa guy would just probably receive his infraction in a day or two for making this useless stupid thread

    2 of my friend bought that then cry, their efforts from event and gold farm waste because of that, the other say accidentally bought that because of rush to buy the other items and the other is they bought it accidentally because of sleepy feeling after a long time run and play the game,better is to store all of your gold to stash and withraw when you buy things at cs.

    Not an attention seeker for calling out some people's pitful attempts to profit of an unsuspecting person or from someone's misfortune. I was hoping STS would ban your pitful kind, but they are just too tolerant I guess. If it was me I would ban you the first hour, on every STS server.

    Even if there is absolutely no rule, you harm the player base by ripping them off with overpriced items. Even if there are no rules at all you are still ripping off people from their hard earned gold. This is absolutely inexcusable. Only explanation for this is not market strategy, or summary tactics, it's just you being a bottom rock type of person this is an undeniable fact and you have admitted it yourself. Have fun with your titles as well. This "tactic" got you some gold and a title which you very well deserved

    We ask that you abide by the following rules:


    1. Do not do anything that will ruin another user's play experience!
    In a loose interpretation of this rule, you could be breaking the ToS if you "trick" people into buying overpriced items.

    Before anyone comes with the "YoU cLicK iT yOurSelf" thing, remember that it can happen to you too.
