That's why this system isn't as good as FH3, you need speed. You should be able to bid to add another 15 seconds to the end of the Auction.

My brother say some time ago that he success mutch better in sniping when use PC monitor vs TV (different game but in both games those steals sold in seconds) so i bet there is mutch difference are you gonna use high end gaming pc and good monitor vs old xbox and tv.


Network could factor in too.

I have had good luck on winning the few auctions I actually participated in. Good monitors and a good PC on a very fast network. Never considered how tv vs monitor could be a real difference since modern TVs and PCs both pretty much use the same encoding. HDMI, etc. The latency alone between mine and somebody in a more rural area could be enough for me to buy it before you even see it.


Yeah network can also make difference too. And there is still mutch difference between monitors and TVs, for example input lag while good monitors it's 1ms good TV's are around 10ms and older and cheaper models that can be even over 50ms. And if goes really deep even HDMI cable matters. And what come trying to give car in friend thruw AH there is also reaction times when you tell that you listed car and and that friends reaction times to after that to search car, so cars like regalia it's pretty mutch impossible to gift right now when there is lots of people sniping.

Edit, and how accurate is even game telling you that car is listed.


None of that really matters. If you see the car it's usually sold

Answer is to hit buyout immediately after every search. Just watch the 20m cars so you may want to price cap.

Buying from friends or sellers is worse that raw sniping as the car lists seconds before the seller is notified.

With raw sniping, statistically you will be first to hook a car at some point, you just need to be fast and buy it out. Waiting for it to show on screen first is usually an instant loss.

At least my game dont do nothing if i press y when it show only white box, only when that auction is fully showed on screen just then i can hit y so i can try buyout, and i just try this 5 times in common and every time result was same.

Fair point, 'immediately' wasn't clear. There is a sweet spot time.

The bit I missed (assumed people would get) is that I hit search, slight delay then hit buyout. To time this I say a word in my head which gives me a consistentish delay. Have tried different words to try and get the right delay so I'm as close as possible to the minimum rather than waiting for a visual signal to respond.

Sometimes my timing isn't quite right and I end up bidding or something silly rather than a buyout but when I was waiting for the image to fully load I won far less as some bidding is very competitive.

Got into a good rythmn with the Regalia, but the downside was a couple of the cars said 'no perks' on the side but I didn't see that until after I'd bought them. Still sold immediately when I threw than back in, so just a little auction tax so no big deal.

I think people only do this to avoid buying there own no perk cars, perhaps by advanced filter for stock painter

That system works if time when that auction is fully loaded is allways the same or at least really close the same, i dont know is it abaout internet speed but for me there is differences how long it takes to load that auction, some times it loads really quickly and sometimes it loads that in long time (time that i can allready say "oh come ***** game load that auction allready i dont have all night time to wait")

Those what say no perks even sold at 20m cr right away, i was looking to get just normal regalia so i really didint care abaout is perks allready used or not but i even miss those also, i finally was able to get one at 500k so now dont need to spent lots of time in auction house trying to get something.

That's a big difference then, my auctions load really quickly and consistently . Where there is only one or two cars then I'd say somewhere from 1-2 seconds before I can start the buyout hence the 'word' timing rather than a phrase. It's rare a see more than a white box before I'm commited or that I either fire early or end up opening the auction or bidding instead of buyout. A screen full of cars takes does a little longer to fully load but then I want to choose so don't use the method.

Crazy that people are bidding 20m on 'used perk' cars. There were so many Regilias passing in the AH I limited buyout to around 1m and I was still seeing more than I've seen for the hotwheels combined.

I don't usually buy cars to sell for profit, save the odd Bugatti but the Regalia was worth a bit of time given the easy profit.

I think it's depend lots of internet speed, my internet is today be really fast and now it have load auctions fast (i won first regalia that i saw) and also when i press my garage get in garage right away and when jump another manufactuer it loads thumbnails right away, when sometimes those take 30 seconds to load.

I think there it lots of regalias in sale because same car end up in auction house many times when people try to get one where is not perks used so can make 10m profit. Regalia that i buy it have 6 owners and another regalia that i have it have 8 owners. And i think those 20m cr those are either people buying those without watching price at all, or guys like me that can drop 20m cr without blinking an eye.

I have a ton of cars that I have put through the AH that have not sold (mostly garbage that I have got x times over) ...

When I come to list another load of wheelspin garbage they seem to appear in the middle of the AH list... ( I actually delete a lot of stuff and am tending now to list the stuff that has a chance of selling)

I checked yesterday ... I had 20 cars 'unsold' then the current 20 live auctions were displayed ...then I had another 40 unsold ...

It wouldn't be so bad if the AH wasn't so slow and only showed 4 cars at a time


It would make much more sense (to me) if the latest were displayed first ... or we had [tabs] ... "live auctions" / "sold auctions" / "unsold auctions"

Ok... I just sold a Lamborghini Veneno for 5M credits, claimed it... and only received just over 4M credits?! I know there’s a sellers fee but seriously? That much? Considering I bought the VIP pack that’s crazy. It should be done away with imo

It's said that the fee's there to keep people from making too much money from auction. Therefore it's just another way of keeping the game's economy from becoming out of balance. But I agree the fee is too high and it doesn't really get the job done either.

Trust me, people are using macros to buy out cars. It works really well. I bet there's at least 5 people at all times running a macro on every rare car in the game.

Quite possibly, but I have won almost all the rare cars I want (POs and some others) manually, so they can't work miracles.

Like anyone i like to save a little money (A few credits) when buying cars in the game.
So i have bought several cars from the auction house most of them i have not had any issue with.
But as of late i have ran into an issue (i'm sure others have as well) after winning an auction i go look at my
new car only to find out that the saler has already purchased some of the cars mastery; most of the time they
have purchased all the wheelspins and gift packages.

In my opinion is basically thievery. This is not something that should not be aloud, once any amount of the cars
mastery is purchased that car should not be aloud to be sold at the auction house. Forza motorsports should fix this.

You're buying a "used" car from someone, and if some/all of the perks are used as well, then that's fair enough. Do you want a car with guaranteed unused perks? Buy a new one. If you buy a used car, you buy it as is and take the risk. You need to ask yourself whether it's worth saving some money and gambling on whether or not the perks have been used, or drop the extra cash on a new car where you're guaranteed to have all the perks unused. They don't need to fix it, it's part and parcel of the game. Any cars you buy from the AH that have a decent skill tree when new are invariably going to have the best perks used up, but that's the price you pay for saving a few credits and not buying brand new. Used is used, perks and all.

You want save credits by buying cars from auction house and complain that you dont have all benefits that you have when buy car in autoshow. And no not everybody is looking to save little money, heck i would even spent some extra credits for car having allready all masteries so i dont need spent skill points on them.

So I wanted to sell it for a bit more than I did last time and went over to the auction house to see how much they were selling for. There were only two auctions, and both had Buy Now prices of 20 million credits. I didn't want to sell it for that much, maybe 10% of that, but found that I could only increase the Buy Now to something like 160k credits.

Long story short, how are people able to increase the Buy Now that high? Am I missing something?

I’m trying to buy a specific car, but everytime I find somebody who’s willing to sell me one, it gets sold before I can even find the listing.

I’m using the “search cars” option on the far left and just searching for the manufacturer of my car, if I don’t see it I click b and restart the process to refresh the listings, but apparently I’m not quick enough.

Is there a faster way to refresh the feed so I can maybe get the car I’m tying to get?

Nope, there is no other way of refreshing your results. You always need to go into that menu and set the filter to the car you're searching for. If a car gets sniped and you weren't fast enough to grab it, you'll need to repeat the process.

If you're only filtering on the manufacturer, then you can search much more quickly by also filtering on the specific model.
