Everytime you buy food and oil in speed nations its always cheap through out most of the round but in nations its always 9-10$, Common people , lower the price on food and oil in NATIONS if you can, if not meh.

It's all about supply and demand.

If there are a ton of VIPs using the market, then the price is usually lower because they're competing with one another on who can sell more and get more money.

If there's just one or two, then they can cause a monopoly. It's basically so they can raise the prices extremely high because they know they can stills ell it. If you don't buy it, they don't care. You're the one that needs it anyways. But the ones who desperately need it will pay the $9 or $10 for it.

Its ok Now, Im a VIP so when i sell my oil and food , It's going to be very low!Why? because i dont care about the money in nations, I know if i do this, it will help my clan members out aswell as my allies and other players.

I hate it when oil and food is 9$-10$ a unit because the players who put it that high NOW for a FACT that someone will purchase it but why get too greedy, still make money selling cheap!
Anyways ,hope this helps someone out in speed nation or nations

You will be bought out by a competing VIP who will then just place your commodities on the market for $10. You lose either way.

Believe me.

You aren't the first person to think of this idea. Some have actually used some pretty innovative ways to get around this problem, but in the end, we've... persuade them to throw in the towel and join the general VIP mindset.

Conform or die! :)
