That's the primary flaw of a bidding system, that's why I wasn't too keen on doing something like that for Ava.
yes it can be flawed but I believe the system is superior in some respects to the loot council method purely because DKP system is an indifferent entity without feelings towards a specific player, for example if you dislike someone subconsciously you may be less inclined to vote them.
Loot council is only fair as long as the members of the council are impartial or uses some sort of measuring criteria to select recipients. I think bidding systems are just a bar higher than rolling for loot in terms of fairness. It doesn't guarantee the most active gets the most loot, and as someone already said, one person pays insanely high for one item and another gets a bargain on same item a week later just because of who were present in the raid, or that a certain blows all their dkp for a rare item. IMO, it's also a luck based system as rolling is.
Ranking from best to worst from my experience in many guilds/MMOs I've been part of
1 EP/GP dkp system
2 Traditional dkp system
3. Loot Council
4. Bidding dkp system
5. Random rolls
