Hi!

I'm trying to snipe one out of three auctions which end 8 and 5 seconds apart:

A 21:26:28
B 21:26:36
C 21:26:41

When will esniper bid on them when I leave the default 10 s before auction timing? Which timing should I use? -s 4?

If it bids at end-10 it will
:18 bid on A
:26 bid on B
:28 A ends. if won, stop
:31 bid on C
:36 B ends. We might have won A and B now.
:41 C ends. We might have won B and C now.

Thanks, Bernhard

  • I tried -s 2, but the minimum is 5 s. What's it gonna do? It can't check if I won B at :36 instantly, so if it's gonna bid on C at :36, I may need to buy B and C.
