Undercutting by 1c is pretty much like rolling into a battleground as a paladin. It's cheap, it's easy, it's ridiculously cowardly.That being said, there have been times in the past that I relished in the tears of my competition. Getting angry tells and mails from other players because I undercut by their profit margin just makes me feel all warm inside.Besides it's kind of a compliment when you see that more than a few people are specifically undercutting only the items that you are posting. When you've pissed off an auctioneer to the point that they are wasting hours and hours of game time just to single you out, and you're still making money? Well then in that case you've done something right.Undercut crits you in the face for 100g.Your tears have just created a new sparkle pony.Ghostcrawler has requested to be your friend on Facebook.

A 1c undercut has nothing to do with cowardice. There is nothing more difficult about changing the numbers on the screen to create a wider gap. Nothing. And all this talk of emotions and tears is the engine of a poor strategy and an immature approach to the AH part of the game. Are people really this wound up about the AH?

Maybe it's a lack of context, which would be completely my fault but I think you're taking my comment a little too seriously."Undercut crits you in the face for 100g. Your tears have just created a new sparkle pony. Ghostcrawler has requested to be your friend on Facebook."...is kind of my way of saying, "why so serious?"

Also,I really have had people stalk me for my AH dealings. Whispers, mail, aggressive and targeted undercutting. All true. All resulting in me having a laugh and taking the piss out of them.

Point taken. I probably did take this too seriously. I guess I just don't understand the level of emotional stuff I regularly see regarding the AH. In some ways, the weirder the AH gets the more I like it. The dynamic nature of the beast is what makes it fun, not just the sum in my pocket at the end of the day...although that is nice too :)
