Like I say, I'd be more comfortable with blind auctions because then the losers get their C-Points back to spend on whatever else they want.
Sure, but the game isn't set up to do blind auctions. The Lock-Boxes don't require anything special in the way of a UI or a special system that wouldn't be useful except during the auction. They're just drops. The only special mechanic involved is the unlock part and I imagine it wasn't that difficult to set up, relatively speaking.
