Hi I am sniping on an auction later tonight and I was wondering if I want to change the offset to 3 seconds do I also have to change the mirroring to 3 seconds? I looked in the faq and i couldn’t find an answer. Thanks

The offsets on the two servers, as with most other aspects of the snipe are independent of one another.
The one with the largest offset is the one most likely to reach an Ebay server first, so if you are determined that your snipe not be placed more than 3 seconds before the end of the auction you do indeed need to reduce the offset of both servers to 3 seconds or less.
I personally don't recommend it though, for the reasons I've stated many times on this forum. _________________ Mark
