OMG my trader just got even worse

Oh yeah it's much easier to make more tier5 than tier4, so there are a lot more people trading down.
And the 1 star traders are using the decay factor to justify soaking the rest of us, I've learned recently. Apparently it's fine to punish all the other sentient traders for an intrinsic design feature. Nice, huh?

FieryArien, I can feel your pain. The bottleneck in sentient goods production are the seeds. You need the same amount of seeds for any tier of sentient goods - a reasonable trading ratio would be very close to 1:1:1, and that's not the case.

Sentient goods trade is world wide, and at least in Arendyll there are some really great economists :rolleyes:, people who constantly post cross tier and 0/1 star trade offers - every single day.

The new filters are a step in the right direction, but not nearly enough to make the trader a pleasant experience.

The same root source for Arendyll's bad traders exists in Winyandor as well, only they've subverted even more players to go along with them :(

Trader is for trading and if you don't like a trade you have no need to accept it. If someone wants all tiers of goods or all manufactories of goods then good for you. You don't need the reader then.

If we want to trade what's the issue?

I filter for the goods I am looking for. So if I'm looking for marble, I only see marble offers, they tend to be not cross tier trades. If there are any of course. For tier 3 goods I do it the other way around. I look for trades asking for my tier 3 good which happens to be gems. That way most cross tier trades are filtered out and the chance of misclicking becomes smaller. Yes it's not ideal, but it at least saves me a lot of scrolling. And on PC I filter for my FS. They only post cross-tier in emergencies.

Hey, that‘s the same method I use! ;-)
Being app player, I hope we’ll also get some filters. Especially the “fellowship” filter. When someone in my fellowship asks for help in the chat, it’s a scrolling nightmare to find their trades.

Oh I use it on PC too. I have several neighbours with only tier3 factories, so I have been looking at these bad trades for years :eek:

Why cant cross tier? Not all people have all 3 tier production! Some people delete tier1 later. But i will never! Because i never want to delete the manufacturers i grew day by day! And i have all 3 tiers and all 3 types of goods in each tier! I dont want to rely on others! Even i have more boosted than unboosted factorys!
And for the final part of ch3, you need tier 3, but the other non-boosted tier 3 you dont have, or it takes too much space and population. And at that time, you need all cross tier!
But it should have option to filter the different star tarde and cross tier/same tier trade, and within-FS/out-FS trade!
Because some people post many many 0star cross tier, it takes pages! Not fair to others!
And some FS only allow 2/3star, but out of FS, the FS rules cant apply. The only in FS/ not in FS option can resolve the problems!

Hi again. The problem is, there is too much tier3 in the game right now. Mid level players chapter 6 to 8 get a lot of it so where once it was scarce and now it is like garbage. Few people want it, so the trades stew in the sun til they stink up the place

Well, the new event "improvements" should put a dent into the "T3 only" player's strategy ;)
