"End Bidding"? Did I miss the chance to confirm my Bid?

    Hello!

    Today, I once again participated at a bidding. After the "Counting..." phase, the "Confirm Bid" appeared.
    My question: For how long am I able to confirm my bid? 5 seconds? 10 seconds?

    Because I was kinda slow today and confirmed my bid a few seconds later than usual. I expected to not be the winner of the bidding, so when I finally confirmed my bid, I was really surprised when I saw the "End Bidding" status for the first time ever.

    Does that mean that I won the item but took too long to confirm the bid and the item went to someone else?

    Side question: Is the "Refresh" button any good? Like does spamming the button help or does the Marketplace refresh itself anyway.

    i think its around 30seconds to confirm your bid, if u won the item its yours, but if u dont confirm it will go into buy after 30seconds

    Mhh, kay. It didn't take 30 seconds for me to press the "Confirm Bid" button for sure.

    But I'd like to know what "End Bidding" means. Did the winner decline his bid?

    So we're supposed to take your word over the games mechanics?

    But what does "End Bidding" mean was my initial question. I didn't claim anything, I just want to know why that status popped up for the first time in my life.

    Hi,
    As GamePois0n and Murderingspork said you have about 30s to confirm your bid. If you win you get the item and a "successfully purchased..." notification.
    End bid means that you did not win the bid but the winner has not confirmed yet. You should receive a notification like "failed to purchase..."
    It will stay like that until someone confirms a successful bid or, after 30s, the item will go to buy.
    If the winner confirms before you, the item will disappear when you confirm your bid and you will see the "item already sold" message.
