It doesnt matter. They put "today" when an auction ends "today" because of a forum post which was unnecessary. It can be optional for many users that do care

I mean following that logic, we can put timers for NT and U21 elections too, right now the situation is just wrong, there is no mention about the elections at all.
I agree that we should have something that will remind people about B3 predictions, cuz, why not?

I agree... it also can show how serious BB is willing to give away prizes to their beloved users...

It would be nice if just like a message notification... the timers would be beside their corresponding menus:

Hello,
It could be interesting to manage advertising at the sports hall. What do i mean? There are billboards around the playing field, that's it. It would be nice to be able to manage a sort of negotiation with sponsors for the spaces of these posters. After each home game there are proceeds based on the contract made with the advertising company, the contract should have the number of games. The quality of the sponsors could be linked to the quality of the spokesperson or in any case to mechanisms whereby if I have better staff then I sign better contracts. Thank you

Make all rounds in Play-offs "best of 3" - it would be more exciting

Cut the bid extension to 60 or 90 seconds. Now if you want to buy a player you need to spend 30 Minutes for this. Internet is faster than 10 years ago.

These are quick and easy changes which would make the game better.

Completely agree cut the bid extension time please

It's so annoying sometimes having to fight a bid for 1 hour or 2 hours

I wouldn't go lower than 2 minutes. And I'm willing to see the numerous example of bidwars lasting 2 hours. Even 30 minutes is far from the norm.

Another way to shorten bidwar would be to increase the %age of the next highest bid. Strangely, the few bidwars I'm participating in and where I usually do bigger increased bids than the suggested ones do not last that long.

Depends, if you employ tactics like I do to tire out my competitor then it's going to last from 30 minutes minimum to 1hour.

Just because you don't have bid wars going on for 30 minutes doesn't mean there aren't countless other who do, anecdotal evidence.

If you reduce the bid time from 2 minutes to 90 or 60 seconds you're going to drastically reduce the time it takes to buy a player sometimes.

I have to employ certain tactics in order to save money which make me waste 30 minutes to 1 hour in bid wars, if you're still skeptical you can check some of the players whom I've bought recently.


edit: Quite frankly increasing the % is counter productive, 90% of BB teams don't have your financial prowess for sustaining increased bids, 99% of teams in BB are going to want to save the most money they can, this is a silly advice that doesn't help with anything quite frankly

So you want to change the whole system, because you abuse it to get a few pennies ?

Well I guess, at least, it's good on you to want to change something that will make you lose out on some money.

Edit:

By the way I did ask for some examples of those, your own anecdotal evidence.

No need to get butthurt just because someone stated a different opinion than yours, buddy .

Change the whole system? Clearly you're unneducated in technical terms as well, changing the timer should be as simple as changing a line of code in BB, 'should be' because I don't have access to BB code, but don't make this simple tiny change seem like a monster problem, lmao.

Lastly the vast MAJORITY of BB users will employ bid time wasting tactics and will try to save the amount of money they put in their bids to the maximum. Think what I'm saying is anecdotal evidence? Why don't you go and see for yourself, get into a bid war, employ a time tactic in order to tire out or discourage the opp and try to minimize the amount of money you invest into the bid, check how much time you're going to waste normally.

Hint: If we're talking about a player whose real value is 1M and his bid is at 500k check how much time you're going to waste.
