    I bid something for 100k and someone surpass me with amount of 130k so I bid again for 150k, it took my gold away both times, 100k + 150k = 250k, LOGIC? Blizzard Southside, newMaxBid = oldMaxBid + (newBid - oldMaxBid), BUT NO instead it charged me 250k in total and tell me my max bid is now 150k, :scratchchin: excuses? game is still in beta? scumbag greedy blizzard activation making everything drm.

    and also, not sure if they have tested this game but:

    1. no tooltip pop up when hover over what players have sold
    2. if items listed unsold, it does not tell you how much you've listed it before
    3. no auction house access in-game (gw2 has it, time has changed, ditch the wow thing)
    4. what have you been doing in those past few months for 'CBT'? is it just for hyping up this mini-wow game? making everyone beg for cbt

    Yeah the gold is under the "Completed" tab. It's a pretty stupid system and it doesn't inform you anywhere, but really it's what I came to expect from Blizzard.

    Look first, rage later. :)

    If it is any consolation, you are not the only one. Bidded on something, found out my bid was not high enough (it didn't show the highest bid for some reason, that or someone bid right at the same time) and still seemed to have lost my money. Was grumbling for about 5 minutes, until I checked whether I sold something, and low and behold, there was the money I bid.

    Sometimes it takes a good while for stuff to be processed,it can look like either gold or item has been lost in the AH only to appear hours later.
