Under the Hammer – Official Info

Source: EU Portal

From January 14–19, you will have a chance to receive very rare vehicles for gold or Free Experience. For this, you’ll need to make a bid at a special auction and win.

Over a period of five days, the auction will sell several exclusive vehicles—and they can all be yours!

How It Works

1. From January 14 through January 19, visit the new Under the Hammer! section in the in-game Store, or take a look at the pop-up in the lower-right corner in the Garage.

2. Every day at 10:00 CET, a new lot will be displayed there. You will see how many items are available, as well as the lot’s starting price in gold or Free Experience.
Remember: If the cost is specified in gold, Free Experience is not accepted, and vice versa.

3. Make a bid that you are ready to pay. This amount will be deducted from your account.

4. Only one lot will be available for Free Experience during the auction. If an item is sold for Free Experience, you will see a competitive bid when the number of bids on it exceeds the number of items. What is it? As many highest bids are accepted as there are available items: the one in the middle of this list is the competitive one. If you make a competitive bid (or even outbid it), you can count on winning the auction.

The competitive bid is dynamic and is updated every 10 minutes. The last update is 10 minutes before the end of the auction. Along with the competitive bid, you will also see the total number of participants applying for the vehicle.

5. Bids are accepted until 06:00 CET of the next day after the announcement of the lot. Until that time, you can change your bid as many times as you like—you can even cancel it. If you cancel a bid, the gold/XP will be returned to your account. Bids will be returned and lots will be credited to the auction winners within four hours after the end of accepting bids.

6. The number of winning bids is determined by the number of available items. If the number of highest bids exceeds the number of remaining vehicles, the earliest bids will be given priority among others of the same value.

EXAMPLE

If the auction participants made 1,000 identical winning bids and only 300 vehicles are available, the earliest 300 bids will win.

7. The winners receive their goods. The rest of the auction participants receive their bids back in full.

8. Vehicles won in the auction are non-refundable.

– Multi-season style designed to celebrate the Lunar New Year, China’s traditional spring festival.

“It hovers among the stars – an ethereal spirit shining in the sky, the eternal guardian of peace and silence. There is no gaze warmer than the one he gives us from above. And there are no gentler steps than the ones with which she graces us in dreams. A defender in leather woven from the gleaming moonlight. Keeper of balance, her totem. Everything will be nice and peaceful as long as he stays there – as long as his soft paws tread on the clouds. “ Continue reading “Update 1.15.0.1: “Lunar Tiger” Style Set Pictures”
