Possible Glitch/Issue with Auction House

Auctions not ending when timer reaches 0?
Was trying to purchase one of the new sky city weapons, and was outbidded on multiple bids. So I decided to wait until the end of the auction and place a final bid. With 1 minute left, I placed a bid and watched the timer count down from 1m to 0m to 0 (which I assumed meant the Auction was over).

However, I was unable to collect my item after this point in time. Had a guildie test what I thought to be happening by placing another bid perhaps 10 minutes after the "end" of the auction, and sure enough his bid went through, giving me the Failed Bid message. Even now, 1 hour after the end of the auction, bids continue to go through on this item.

Just something to be aware of.





edit: approximately 65 minutes after the timer reached zero, the auction actually ended, with my bid at 60 minutes after the end of the auction being enough to win the item

Patch notes:

Known issues:

When you set up an auction and choose a time length, the timer may appear one unit lower than what you selected. This is because the timer moves to the next visible unit immediately as the countdown begins. The auction will still last the intended duration correctly.

Ex) You select 7 Hours for the length of the auction. The timer immediately changes to 6 Hours. This is because itís counting down from 6 Hours and 59 Minutes; the 59 Minutes arenít visible. However, theyíll still count for the auction.

This topic is really only meant to inform people of a potential issue with auction countdowns. Please try to avoid excessive QQ or ranting, as I'd prefer not to see it get moved or locked.

Personally i think people should pay a hefty fine if they cancel auctions in the latter stages. This will make people more careful of cancelling auction's because they did not get the price they want in the last minute.

The item names are case sensitive. A Legendary Python Protector is not a legendary python protector.

I also believe that I've read somewhere that when you bid on an auction well less then an hour left or so, time is automatically added onto the auction (maybe 20 minutes or so). Not quite sure where I saw that, maybe I'll look it up when I'm not lazy (basically means I wont... I would be a terrible GS lol..)
