I'm playing strictly as a food, oil, and land farm so that I can keep prices low for other users. Price gouging on the market makes it hard for non vips to rank well. As is I'm making over 100k food and oil every 20 turns.

I don't mind that you other VIPs are buying it and relisting at a higher price. That is fine. Part of real life is buying stuff at a low price and relisting it higher to make profit.

But I do have a problem with you other VIPs asking your clan mates who are not VIP to buyout my oil. A non-vip will buy 400k + food and oil just so your goods are the lowest on the market. But by doing this all that food and oil is wasted. They will be getting -20k food and oil per turn. They are just throwing it away and there is no reason for that.

Just have your clan members buy your own stuff at the higher price and ignore mine.

You guys really know how to drive people to not enjoying the game anymore and wonder why Nations isn't as big as it used to be. Even someone like me who doesn't play to rank, but just enjoys helping other people ends up stopping again because of your tactics.

And I'm using all my money from turns and my market purchases to buy your 10 dollar stuff...So you're still making money...I just don't get it.

Im not getting any of your 10$ purchasing!! :( :(

Also, care to tell me who is does this? Im just hoping it isnt anyone from Domination. Granted i have bought up a lot of food / oil from random people just so i can have it in the later part of the round when Offence and Defense are really taking a lot of my money and depending only on my $$ i make off the market

I produce -40,000 units of oil per turn, so when I buy your 400,000 units, it lasts 1 set lol
