When the item is sold out, why not kill the time and move to the next item?
Because then it wouldn’t be meh.
I’m sure it’s all choreographed… There are certain patterns.
They probably plan to have higher profit items sold at times of peak visiting. If they automatically advanced it would throw their timing off.
And they want to differentiate themselves from woot!!
For the IRK’s as an example, it is most likely known they will sell out within seconds but they have a 5 minute timer. That is to encourage engagement in the forums.
@cengland0 also, some people would miss it if it disappeared after 30 seconds.
They want to push it in.our face so we’ll hang around to grab one.
@cengland0 @OnionSoup Or hope it comes back again later or during VMP regular afternoon hour.
May I just say SOLD OUT KILL TIMER is very metal.
@ThomasF I’m just so happy with this gif.
