Do you think that some users have 2 accounts? One they bid on their item higher on to raise the price to eager buyers and 1 to sell?

I strongly suspect so...look at this XXP275.

Notice a new user, 'nickhenry14', registers on eBay on the 6th of May, then does a lot of bids. <_<

If by accident you do go past the maximum bid so far, you just cancel your bid - see? Unethical. I wonder if eBay has anything to stop that kind of thing...

Always snipe! Bidding early makes no sense, as the price will be driven up.
Just set a max bid within 5 min of the end of the auction and sit and relax-bidding the smart way. :Hey, that's funny.:

Hahaha. I should have done that.(I am going to)My friend's dad is always on ebay and snipes every time he bids. His name is "fatracoon". He times it right to the last second!

EDIT: My last sentence

I usually snipe in the last 10-30 seconds.

You can pretty much ignore the times on that, I rarely ever have Xfire on when I play. I should, though.

Thumbs down

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!! The price of the 3000 went too high(my parents won't let me bid that high). You think they are going to sell more CPS 3000's later?

sure. Right now its just the start of the season, the amount of good soakers on ebay should swell by the time July and August come around. There should be many more opportunities to get a CPS 3000.

Do you think that a 3200 is just as good or better than the 3000? I don't know whether to buy it off my friend for $40 or not. I have a chance right now. I could also buy a 1200 off him for $20.

its worth the $20

ok, I just lost the 1700 on ebay. I started with a high bid that was outbid. Then why I was snipping, my browser got slow and I missed the last seconed. Now I'll go to my seconed choice which is the 2700. Do you guys think its worth $50? IS it better than the 1700? Can it snipe well? Which color should I get? did they work out any kinks in the later version? THis is mainly aimed at doom because I know he has one.

The 2700 is NOT worth $50. The 1700 is way better. But if your talking about power they ARE similar. I'd go up to $35 on the 2700 but that's just me.
