Yes, some of them can be found in Despicable Bidding Practices' Factbook on his nation page.

I have yet to have issues with Fris in collecting my own S2 epic. He actually has yet to get a copy so far as I can see, so evidently the strategy of just having large bids works perfectly fine.

I agree that a player with unlimited bankroll could beat anyone!

Nobody has that, obviously, but my point is that everyone has a spot where they are going to say: NO HIGHER!

One of Frisbeeteria's keys to success, not that he even really needs this one anymore, is that he is extremely conservative in what he is willing to pay. The market value has to be extremely substantial for him to even move off of his .55 that he floats as a BID on cards that he does not have, which is his default amount.

Thank you for buying one of my pups Epics for like 0.77 net proving that Fris' Ask/Buys play little role in my continued success.

What are you talking about? The skull card? Yeah, I bought it. I even sent Frisbee (who is accepting my TGs again) to please let me middle with a .99 bid if it came to it in bidding because I plan to sell to Soldiersend Archive at breakeven.

So, I only bought that card to do something nice for someone...and also felt the need to ask Frisbee not to put the wood on me if I went .99.

All due respect, GTF over yourself.

For the record, I can also prove all of this with screenshots of sent telegrams.

Finally, I apologize that there’s no way you come out of this without making that post look like a colossal douche thing to do, but:

A. I didn’t plan for that.

B. I didn’t know I was buying from you.

AND:

C. Even if NOT B, there’s no way I could have known that you had plans to come to this thread to gloat every time you sell one to me.

—-Also, Frisbee WAS involved on the bidding side. He could have laid it on me at whatever amount I was bidding anytime he wanted to, hence the TG to him.

I’d retort that I hadn’t planned to.

You're still doing this ... or doing it again? You sound like one of those players who "declares war" on me in one of the roleplay forums. It ain't much of a game when only one side is playing.

I am? I'm pretty sure you're still blocked for being annoying.

By the way, it's "Fris" or "Frisbeeteria". I've never been "Frisbee" or "the Frisbee".

Game as in the card game is a game. I didn’t mean that you were actively engaged in the one on one with me, just that I’m done specifically focusing on playing you in, “The game.”

I don’t know if you are accepting TGs or not, then. I got a message once that you did not accept them, then last night I got no such message and it appears in my Sent box...so I think my assumption was founded, if not correct.

Fris it is. You can call me Barometria or any shortened form you wish.

No comment on "Frisbeeter", then? :p

I've been collecting epics for a long time now. Yes, fris has a bid and an ask on almost all of them, but it rarely interferes with the trades i do.
Sometimes he makes a few pennies when i bid 0.54 on a card on the auction. That's two pennies going from me to Fris. I doubt that's going to make him rich...
If anything, his asks create some dynamics on the epic-market because of the people who decide to match the 0.50 bid instead of junking them.
I can then simply watch the market for interesting cards to snipe.

The fact that so many cards go to market because of his standing bids is a very reasonable and unassailable counterpoint. I guess it's just a cost-benefit question.
