From this point on, you’ll be going in blind to land auctions in Albion Online. The newest patch has changed the way bidding for land works by switching to a blind auction system, with other player bids no longer visible. You can see the previous winning bid and your own bid, but beyond that you just have to guess and hope you’re outbidding your competitors. That means there will be some uncertainty about who actually has the winning bid until the end, which is sort of the whole nature of an auction.
