The real contest on ebay BEGINS in the final 5 minutes on most figure related items. Never count your chickens. And it's not A-holish nor is it screwing someone else over. It's a more tactful bidder with a better grasp of the price the item will sell for and a more timely bidding method. I even employ auction sniper sometimes to throw down my bid in the final 5 seconds so no one can get in after my max bid. I'm sorry but you just sound like a sore loser who doesn't know what he's doing by complaining about it like this.

You can either bid the first day or the final day hours before it's over and not win the item or you can constantly refresh and computer camp like the "pros" do and get what you want. You aren't screwing anyone over.

I believe there are programs you can download which autobid up to a specified amount on your behalf? This is what you will be experiencing, and most likely NOT a human sat with a twitching finger on the "confirm your bid" button....
