Hey guys, anybody else had problems bidding before? I did get the following error message as soon as I wanted to bid for Garrincha, however the app was not able to proceed for 30 seconds. Hence it expires at 1.141 million even though I have been bidding 1.15 constantly.

    too many bids done, you were market banned for a short while?

    That was one bid every 2-3 seconds with the other person bidding doing exactly the same. If that would be the case, then this is more than hilarious from EA :smiley:

    you might have been the first one to get the ban .. or maybe you bid on someone else in the same timeframe?

    That was the only player I have been bidding on at that time. So general advice would be to wait for 5 to 10 seconds after being outbidden?

    I get it if I bid korethwn about 4 or 5 times for a player, whether it's quickly bidding or over time

    But why should that even be a thing when it gives you the possibility to bid on a player? In order to prevent autobidders? If so, is there any general advice how to safely bid on players without this happening?

    Anyone reading this who knows exactly how to stop it happening For the op, don’t tell him, as he may be that one person who pushes your price up!! The more who can’t bid the better for the rest of us 😁.

    Common thing, you need to logout and login to get it working again.

    Very slow way to fix that! Only get 30 seconds too!

    I know it sucks but it’s the only way imo.
