    Why are there so many bad trade offers for these goods . And in felyndral there seems to be a surplus of platinum and ink everyone is offering it and my grades don't get taken for days even 3* ones

    Trader is a convenient place to store your sentient goods overnight. These goods decay regardless, but someone may bite on your lucrative trade and then poster benefits. If not, you just cancel the trade and get goods back when you need them. Basically, there is no downside for posters to place those trades.

    surely if you store sentient goods in the trader they decay to nothing - if you keep them yourself they decay to basic goods. I post 3 star trades and they don't go for several days just get smaller

    Actually, I never checked if non-sentient goods from decay in trader get credited back or not. Regardless, at this stage of the game lost amounts of non-sentient goods from decay are usually not material.

    How big are your trades, and which tier? I usually have no problems with fills at 1:1 for T4, it may take a few hours. But I post trades as I produce my boost, so usually my trades are for 1-2K each. If I tried to move 50K in one go that might be a problem.

    Hi. I am having the same problem as Giordianna in Felyndral. I am one of the platinum / ink producers.
    I find it very difficult to get trades even a reasonable 3 star trade. I usually offer about 5500 for 5000. If I am desperate I post 6000+ for 5000 and have even resorted to the wholesaler.
    There are 31 pages of trades offering platinum, 4 pages of trades offering moonstone(but none wanting platinum) and none offering tree gum.
    With the trades offering platinum, there are only 2 above 5000 and there are very small 2 star trades that are close to expiring.
    There definitely seems a production imbalance, but I am not sure of a solution

    In Arendyl there are a decent list of sentient trades, but I do find that anything up to half of them are really poor trades, some offering as little as half of the one they are asking for. I just ignore them.

    Yes, I have an Arendyl city at Constructs level too. I know what you mean about the poor trades, but you can ignore them and still progress.
    The issue with Felyndral is that it is nearly impossible to get the goods I need for the tech tree.

    Felon-whatever is the 3rd world, literally and figuratively. it was created well after the other 2 worlds and it's no surprise that there are fewer players in the higher chapters in that world. you'll have less competition for high tournament rankings and fewer players to trade higher level goods with for playing there.
    it's also draining away new players that would have otherwise gone to the other worlds, which is why i think that world never should have been created in the 1st place. who needs a 3rd world for a 3rd city anyways? 1 human and 1 elven city should be more than enough.

    My other city is on Fel and it's really hard to get the required sentient goods most of the time. Alloy Shrooms, Obsidian and Gum in particular.

    Do you think this could be down to Inno never having solved the lack of event balance for level 1 manufactories? EN3 was created much later than the other two, so more people would understand that having a marble boost makes events easier as they only take 2 squares at level 1 for both races. Whereas steel takes 4 squares for both races at level 1. Coincidence?...

    Marble boost becomes Platinum boost (too much Platinum available). Steel boost becomes Gum boost (not enough Gum).

    Hmmmm?

    Only certain combinations of T1/T2/T3 are possible per city location and so T2/S2/T3/S3 goods would also be affected, if when people created a Fel city they kept re-creating it until they got a marble boost.

    It is a coincidence. US7 (Ceravyn) similarly was created much later than the other worlds. Guess what is in (relatively) short supply there? Yep, platinum. Gum and Moonstone are relatively abundant.

    sorry if i sounded like an ___ above for ripping on Felon-whatever, but do you folks see the trend here on this thread?
    people suffer from less trading partners for higher tier goods by being in younger worlds.
    older worlds suffer from getting fewer new players to their world.
    a lot of this problem is because there are too many worlds.
