We will be having an Eggling Auction to close out this year's Fall Festival. It will run from Tuesday, December 8th at 12 PM through Wednesday, December 9th at 6 PM.

For this Eggling Auction, we have created a brand new page as well as some changes to the mechanics of the game. You can visit the link below to view the new page, the rules, and the game's schedule.

http://www.sylestia.com/games/eggling_auction/



Game Rules
1. You may only have an active Bid on one Eggling at a time and you cannot outbid your own Bid.
2. Each Bid requires a Bid Increment equal to 2.5% of its Starting Price. This is automatically set for you upon each page load.
3. At the top of every hour, Egglings with active Bids will have their Current Bid increase by 2.5% at NO EXTRA COST to their Current Bidder.
4. Gold is deducted when you place a Bid. If you are subsequently outbid, then that Gold will be immediately and automatically refunded to you.
5. In order to place a Bid, just simply click on the Eggling of your choice.
6. All Bids are final. You cannot request a refund on a Bid.
7. Once the Eggling Auction ends, the Players with the highest Bid on each Eggling will win that corresponding Eggling's Prize(s).


You can view the Eggling Auction page linked above to see what this game's prizes are. Since this is a Festival Eggling Auction, it will primarily consist of Themed Pets and a few Mystery Prizes. Just a head's up, the Mystery Prizes will each have something a little extra special this time around. =)


What Changed?
The biggest change to the Eggling Auction, aside from just a new page layout and all that fun stuff, is that at the top of every hour, Egglings with active Bids will have their Current Bid increase by 2.5% at NO EXTRA COST to their Current Bidder. What does this mean exactly?

Example, if at 1:30 PM, I bid 100,000 on Eggling #10 and nobody else has bid on that Eggling yet, I will become the High Bid on Eggling #10 and it will cost me 100,000 Gold.

At 2:00 PM, the Current Bid on Eggling #10 will automatically increase by 2.5%, or 2,500 Gold, and increase to 102,500 Gold. This means that a Player will now have to bid 105,000 (102,500 + the Bid Increment) to outbid me.

At 3:00 PM, the Current Bid on Eggling #10 will again automatically increase by 2.5%, or 2,563 Gold, and increase to 105,063 Gold. This means that a Player will now have to bid 107,563 (105,063 + the Bid Increment) to outbid me.

So on and so forth.

This hourly increase comes at NO EXTRA COST to me. I still will only have paid my original 100,000 Gold. This mechanic exists to be an incentive for players to bid earlier and accrue free 'interest' on their bid rather than everyone just waiting until the last 30 seconds to bid for the first time.

If someone outbids me after hourly increases have occurred, I will get my 100,000 Gold back. I will not get free Gold back from the increase. The increase is a game mechanic only - it is not a bank. =P

Other than that major change, nothing else has really changed with the game. Just cleaned some logic up, gave it a new interface, and made some minor adjustments here and there.

Some more minor changes may come in future iterations. I had a limited amount of time to get this ready this time around.

Hope everyone has fun and enjoys. And, again, those Mystery prizes are going to be a bit sweeter for this auction!



Thank you to everyone who participated. It looks like there was a lot more activity in this Eggling Auction than recent prior ones - up by almost 50%. It's a bit hard to gauge if this was just due to excitement over the new format or the new mechanics itself.

Feel free to leave feedback regarding the changes. And below is what the lucky winners of the 8 Mystery Prizes will receive. Congrats!


Mystery Prize

3-Vis (2-Vis if Majestic) Fall Themed Pet of Choice, [Peerless Avatar Token] x1, [Companion: Nebula Kitty (Lumina)] x1, [Wheel of Themed Ticket] x1

The Shadowstalker Ryori egg has a listed starting bid of 10,000 instead of 100,000 like the rest of the fabled eggs

Don't ya just love it when players take the initiative to let you know something is listed wrong rather than exploit it? <3

It's a site wide ping. You are pinged regardless of if you participated in the Eggling Auction or not.

I hope that clears up your question. Have a wonderful day/night. ^-^
