    My favorite was watching @Deacon 's Ocllo small sell for 70m. I was just amazed that it kept going up, up, up...

    That's the good kind of entertaining auction. You know, with bids and no drama?

    I couldn't agree more! Goothing their was no shill bidding on his auction or @FORUM POLICE would have had to step in!

    Villainizing those that point out "questionable" behavior is now a clear and present M.O. of a very select group of players.
    Have you noticed that? It's like they're all the same person.


    A serious crime has happened here. It's been going on like this for a long time and those that have raised the red flag have continuously caught all the flak.

    you got people shi__ing in your house and you know what...

    this whole thread saddens me, most who play this game are supposed to be grown ups yet seems like high school all over again. I don't know who is or isn't derp or do I care, but seems lots of people go after IDOC and cash in. Don't like the person or who they may or may not be friends with then ignore them or pk them in game.
    Sorry to see @merlin8666 go, seems to be a good guy who has hosted more the a few resist events, so let the man sell his keep without the drama and wish him well.



    Okay my rant and 2 gold added and done

    Sara I appreciate your input. Unfortunately, you are missing the whole point. This is not about disliking someone, this is about taking part in illegal forum activities. Please re read the whole thread. If you like getting ripped off, that's your business. I don't. Thanks

    While I understand your point and intentions, I just have one question...

    Should members of the same guild be able to buy things from each other? Should friends be able to buy things from each other?

    I mean, if @bart simpson posted something for sale on the forums and I got into a bidding war with someone, would I be accused of shill bidding?

    I believe Air's point is that Earsnot knows Erza will not sell the villa, so it is all a sham that he wants it as he knows he'll never be able to place the fort.

    I dunno.

    Ok, this will be my last post on this.


    --Buying a villa near Vesper for 4million is absolute insanity, unless you KNOW a fort can fit there. So that's some bullshit.

    --Earsnot will never get Erzas Villa, and he knows that. Which means, he would never have his fort because he has been trying for months.

    --Anyone with common sense would be able to recognize wth is going on, if you read every post in this thread.

    --They put on a great show, trying to pressure @JohnM into B/O option with his "I ONLY HAVE 29 MILL GUYS" with a NEW B/O set for 30million..hmmmm

    -- @Cynic , I buy and bid on stuff from guildies all the time, or used to. But we never used alt forum accounts and lied about it. We never pretended to be someone else. We never shill bid to get our people more money. If merlin really gave a shit and wanted earsnot to have the keep, he would have ended at 25mill before the shit storm. Hell, he could have easily sold privately for 25mill and ended auction. This auction was all about shill bidding, period.

    --Again,
    1) Earsnot goes after a villa that he knows they NEED to place a fort.
    2) is unsuccessful for 3 months.
    3) merlin decides to sell the keep (to take a break)
    4) Earsnot pretends hes allll in at 18mill+
    5) all of a sudden, someone asks if a fort fits!?! OH MAN, HES ALL IN AGAIN AT 25MILL (while smack talking john, trying to coerce john into bidding more.)
    (((THEY KNEW A FORT FIT HERE, THAT'S WHY HE WANTED THE VILLA)))
    6) HURRY JOHN, BRING YOUR NUTS TO THE TABLE AND BEAT ME, I ONLY HAVE 29MILL AND B/O IS 30MILL....
    7) The people got tired of this nonsense and threw in the bullshit flag.
    8) After 5 pages of shit talking and exposing of ill will, nothing happens via forums, no one yells at me, and key players are no where to be found (iderp).
    9) Air realizes that the "innocent" idoc'ers, left a small house plot open in front of their phony keep for sale...and places a glorious waterfront home.
    10) Air decides to try and make a few GP by selling that small waterfront home for a reasonable price. and people get angry.

    Earsnot is IDERP and so is Merlin, yet he even lied about that:

    "I make absolutely no bones about publicly stating I do IDOCS guy, I start most of my property auctions with the tag line - "got a cop and drop for you" - I think thats pretty self explanatory and obvious homie. I'm not in iderp. I tried, for real, I asked around about iDERP but everyone I asked told me it was dead."

    You might not be the original iderp, but you definitely role with those guys on a daily basis and in voice chat.

    Moral of the story? This was a poor attempt whatever the hell they were trying to do. I may not be 100% correct about every detail, because every other word out of their mouth is a lie, but there was definitely some fuckery going on here and it needed to be talked about.

    I'm done with this thread now, so anyone who wants to chime in and say "gosh guys, you make this server look bad", I have to words for you..."Turd Burger". Because that's what you are. You are unable to read this thread and understand what actually happened. All you see is this poor guy merlin, complaining about his auction that got de-fucking-railed. No longer will I sit quiet and let people take advantage of honest people. Even though this is just a game, people work too damn hard, spend parts of their life working here, for some shit heads to take advantage of them and artificially inflate prices. I will go back to my sitting on the couch at home, thinking of my next devious plan. Cheers.

    --Once JohnM got suspicious, and rightfully so, that's when I had a moral obligation to bring this shit show to light. And believe me, there will be more if this continues.










    For someone who was tapped out at... 18mill 486k...he sure "sold some stuff to homies"


    Amazing ain't it?

    I don't have the time or the patience for this. @merlin8666, please state who the current high bidder is and how much time there is left on this auction. Any and all further comments that are not bids AND BIDS ONLY will be removed. For those of you who can't seem to follow the rules, any further personal attacks will result in forum privileges being revoked. If you insist on continuing this slap fight, please do so in Trash Talk.
