    There is nothing *worse* (read: STRANGE) when a manager with a 2-3* team is bidding for a high Q-youth....and keep on bidding, bidding and bidding and then ends up winning or pulling out after +20 rounds....

    I just went 17 rounds for a 26yo 5* DC/DR with corner. this was legit and the guy didnt want to give up even though he didnt need it. too bad because i needed it. my other DC/DR was 2* and I needed him. some real assholes bidding today.

    yes, I find it hard to believe that he has never gone more than 7 rounds and lost.

    Incredibly lucky, that. I have gone more than 7 and lost, but only a couple times, and I'm not sure how many was the longest I lost, over 20 for sure...but I also for sure remember the very next player I outbid the very same Turkish dude. I stopped doing that. Now I have better plans, I don't bid on players that I expect to lose on. (Which is to say: I only go for the most egregiously expensive players, during the slowest part of the season... and I make sure I have enuff tokens anyway. I also avoid that guy <even though I've faced him a few times in CL> and all when the Asians are awake, I don't bother bidding, ever anymore.) Even with my crazy lack of dignity a few times, my average T per player is down to around 4 now.
    Expressed above is my own opinion. Your results may vary.
