Ethereal199said: Pleb Bertsaid: anyone know how that would have worked out ?
It was an inactive sell offer. If a player places a sell offer into the GE, and then does not log into the game for more than 1 week, then that sell offer becomes inactive and is taken out of the GE queue. The inactive sell offer becomes active when they next log into the game, but it does not get immediately matched to a corresponding buy offer. It is only matched to the next buy offer that exceeds the inactive sell offer price.
This is how some players have managed to instant buy partyhats (for example) for less than max cash this year, as it is normally impossible to instant buy them as there are currently many buy offers in for max cash.
So the higher buy offer in this case would not get it?
