It's a bug that should be reported via a help ticket asap. Do not buy any of this food or oil as you risk having your nation restarted for being a part of this illegal action.

Alright. In the logic of BC, it is legit. I took several steps to do this. It is not like I opened up two browsers and cheated my way through this. It is my strategy. I own the market from now on. GG.

Yer, well i worked out how to get over 1 million of food oil or $$ on a single turn - got told its cheating, even tho you can basicaly do it the same way as lowlanding.
So
pretty sure its probly not legit.

I don't care how many steps you took it is a glitch anyway you look at it.

Subscription Details

This subscription has been canceled.

I will not get it back until something is done about the many steps you took.

If it is cheating Neo, why hasn't it been fixed? How do we know people haven't been using it for this whole time? This obviously isn't something new, but rather something that is already used... Just carefully

Secondly, if it was reported ALREADY, then why is there no rule against using it? Rhetorical question. They don't want people to know about it, because if they know about it, they'll use it. They really just don't want to fix it. Why are you paying for your VIP hotchit, I don't know.

Well now...you know how to put pressure on admins :P

You shouldnt cancel your VIP for that tho, he will most likely be reset/banned shortly along with whoever took part in helping him.

Unfortunately, with the complexity of how Nations was written, admins refuse to start re-writing all of it simply so I doubt any in-game actions will really be taken.

Simple way of fixing the code. Just too lazy...


On another note, yeah, a glitch is a glitch.
Gotta find them sometime or another...


Calling it an in-game problem, yeah, I agree. But for the fix. To end the round, I'd say wipe the market, and money. Keep everything else.

Very easy as some people think.

Why am i paying for VIP. why not the game has faults yes but most people do not exploit bugs.I buy it to support the game, and it gives me an edge over people who do not pay.

This issue will be looked at soon by the Admins. There can be many causes of this glitch some (like neo's) can be self imposed and some can be bought on by the actions of others.

Hopefully the Admins will find a simple way to code this out but it is not always as simple as some people may think.

Thanks for the help tickets for those that did the right thing.

Are you saying I should have submitted a help ticket? I was told they already know about it, therefore there would be no point to submit another one. As far as the people talking about banning people(Or me) for this, well, like I said, it is already known and there is no rule about it. No rule, I can use it. That was the logic with the tech alliance swapping. I have yet to hear from anyone official: Do not use it. Until then, I will use it, and I don't see why others can't reap the benefits of it as well.

It is like leaving a roast in a room with a dog, and telling him not to eat it.

And hotchit, again I say: How do you know that no one has been using it the entire time, but just carefully(Not putting tens of millions on the market like me)?

What if I said I can make 100 times more oil AND food then neo figured out? Would that piss you guys off?

It's funny. If someone that is well respected in the community uses a glitch, or works around the system they are ingenious pioneers. Anyone else needs to be banned.

Congrats on figuring it out SS.

93 million.
There are a lot of ways that I know of to get that much...But it would probably take me the entire round lols.
Nice.

i thought i was lucky and was buying it off for a cheap price cuz he was selling it to a friend or something -.-

Thanks CL for noticing that aspect.

Looks like almost the whole of Nations would be banned if Sal was right. My food and oil flow through pretty much the entire market now.

What SS is doing is no different than what BC is doing. Congrats SS, you deserve it.

Yes...
Unless VIPs get supporters and ...farmers to do this.

Just think how much turns VIPs can save if they have someone on the side to give them money and someone else on the side to give them food and oil. Millions at once too.

Add some hardcore tech swapping and lowlanders might even break ...Ah forgot they removed techies.

Aw well, VIPs will still have a rather large lead.
