Rules:
+ Once a bidding round is ended the winner will choose the box of their choice, and it will be taken off the board, and noted.

+ Bidding starts at 80k, and increases by a minimum of 10k increments.
+ Failure to pay will result in box being available again.
+ Boxes will not be given to the winning bidders until all boxes are auctioned off, in order to make it a true mystery box auction.

Is this for every ocean, or just doub oceans. or just Viri?
If so, how do Sub ocean players participate?

This is sadly an event just on Viridian. However other dub ocean players can take advantage by selling their winnings for dubs to use on their ocean. However subscribers are really unable to join in unless they're moving to a dub ocean. Our main goal in posting in this section was to try and encourage other dub oceaners to come join us.

If this is just on Viridian, please can a mod move it to the Viridian events forum?

That's pushing the envelope a bit.
For Example:
If this principle were honored in for say .. all circumstances, could I not advertise my 10000 units of stone on all other oceans in case somebody wanted to make a profit and sell them for doubs? XD

Keep it on Viridian, I'm sure you'll get plenty of support.
