Caution. The competitive bid in the free XP auction IS NOT the minimum bid to winn the auction. It is the MIDI value of all winning bids and may be WAY higher than the minimum winning bid. (All winning bids will be put in an ordered list and the middle value in that list will be shown as ‘competitive bid’. So there as many WINNING bids BELOW the competitive bid as there are above.
WG does this to try and fool us to overbid. This is a bit cheaky and definitely changed compared to the way it was implemented in last years BM.
