Title: Trade Time Dynamics
Post by: iIiacrush on January 15, 2009, 11:50:32 AM
Why have I never seen my trade offers in the best offers screen: eg I offer 1000 stone @ 2g, 20 minutes later either none or some is sold but best offers are 2.1 upwards? And in general I’ve get to see a single offer in the best offers. Have other players noticed the same?

Could we have a bit more information on the update process please in particular the time to market process and time to notification after purchase.

Thanks

read more carefully the description of the Trade research :

"-To buy something it has to be offered by another player.
-All sells are made in gold.
-All purchases are made in gold.
-For posting offer a fixed 10% commission is taken
-Base commission is 20% but it can be reduced by researching Trade with 2% per level, after level 1.
-The maximum level of Trade which can be researched is 11.
-The offer lasts for 48 hours and it will show up on the market between 10 and 60 minutes after posting it.
-The top 5 offers for each resource are always shown in the 'Buy' menu.
-If all 5 top offers have the same price, the one posted first will be on top.
-After it expires, the offer is returned to the owner in the province it has been posted."

Thanks Starbucks :)

but damn, upto 60 minutes after!!!, and the very wide window, what affects if they are place nearer to 10 or 60? Just random or load on the server, other?

and will they always go on in the order placed, or could a later one jump in ahead?

I think it's the load of the server that affects the time.. And as far as i know (personal experience) they always go in the order placed..
