Bad GA News

Hey guys! I've got some unfortunate news about the GA that nagaineko and I hosted.



All the details will be below the cut since it may be drama induced but if you don't really feel like reading it all; We lost.


First of all let me apologize on both our behalves to everyone who was looking forward to something in the lot. Especially that Typhlosion since I'm pretty sure it was a grail to the people bidding. ;~;

This lot was an eBay lot and I went to go place our bid the morning after Nagaineko posted the threads. The lot which had previously been reserve free now had one. That didn't make us feel very comfortable on bidding. Someone else had placed a bid though, and after talking with Gin we decided to do about 50% of what we'd raised. We had the high bid but the reserve was still not achieved, which was pretty suspicious since that was just a little lower than what we'd raised at the point the reserve was put on. Anyway fast forward a bit and a new bidder with 0 feedback and the new member symbol came in and outbid us. Could be a total coincidence (since they ended up winning for WAY more than we had raised which is another reason we lost) but it made us way too wary and we stopped there. Bidding reserve (+shipping) ended up being about the same as what we raised at that point in time. >:


But yeah. >: I'm so sorry guys, I hope that the next time we decide to go after an eBay lot something like this doesn't happen. ;-;


Some good news though; We'll be posting another GA shortly! (With no eBay drama included!)
