Hi All,

I've been mulling about enabling the market info for a few resets now, and since I finally am having an EE dev day, I decided to just do it.

Now, goods En Route to market will say when they will arrive; goods already on market will say how long they are there for.

Regards,

-qzjul & the EE Dev Team
Finally did the signature thing.

From my country on Alliance server:

xxxxxx Tanks on sale for $xxx each (Until -171382 seconds from now)
xxxxxx Turrets on sale for $xxx each (Until -168764 seconds from now)
xxxxxx Bushels on sale for $xx each (Until -101161 seconds from now)

then a few minutes later:

xxxxxx Tanks on sale for $xxx each (Until -171597 seconds from now)
xxxxxx Turrets on sale for $xxx each (Until -168979 seconds from now)
xxxxxx Bushels on sale for $xx each (Until -101376 seconds from now)

so yes, looks to be counting to -172,800, in seconds
- - -
Edit: Confirmed

xxxxxx Tanks on sale for $xxx each (Until -172799 seconds from now)
xxxxxx Turrets on sale for $xxx each (Until -170181 seconds from now)
xxxxxx Bushels on sale for $xx each (Until -102578 seconds from now)
then
0.3 mins ago
xxxxxx Tanks were returned from the market.

I saw the timer go to -172828 seconds on my Sell Goods page.

Goods take 4-5 hours to reach the market. Each good (even if you place them up at the same time) has an independent time to market. That is how it has always been.

If each good reaches the market independently, why can't we recall each good independently >=O

You can recall tech, and non-tech goods independently! Well, it adds a strategic element to be an all-or-nothing recall.

Oh I know, but if I'm selling military and also stocking food but all of a sudden I need food, I'd like to be able to recall my food instead of buying more. Could be strategic in how you batch things on the market - say putting 2-3 batches at 5m and the rest in another batch, this would then allow me to recall a 5m batch a day to feed my ppl instead of holding 15m and letting it decay per turn.

I wonder is this concept ever happen.
Same like ads, if we pay more, our ads will first on top of the page

Using this concept, a seller will pay more to get their product into market ASAP or first to sell.

there was suggestion for bonus which decreases time for goodies to arrive on market but it got shot down since to have noticeable impact player would need to invest alot points into that bonus and those would be away from better bonuses.

That's why we should use oil for that instead of bonuses.

The Luck bonus already does this, that is, decrease time it reaches the market. By the stated Luck % I think. Can't be proven though, since there is a high variance on the amount of time taken for goods to reach market.

From the in-game help:
"Luck is the subtlest of the permanent bonuses. Investing in luck will lead to better explore returns, greater missile production, and lower market times. In addition, lucky countries have a greater chance of getting spy ops against countries with better spy networks and a greater chance of successfully attacking when oversending. "

luck is supposed to do many things but none of those can be prooved.

main point why that bonus wouldn't work was that even with 10% reduction it wouldn't matter much.

That's the problem with Luck. It does too many things, jack of all trades, and master of none. That literally makes it not worth using, the bonuses from it doesn't have synergy with anything other than all-explorers, and only until the point you are going to explore less than 1000 turns left in the set (i.e about 1/3 of the way into the set) because at that point, Turns bonus becomes better.

I can only imagine the impact this will have on market play in alliance and especially in FFA. Adds a whole new level of complexity to the game. Some may see it as bad, others like me will view it as great. Looking forward to see how I can best use this new info to improve my game, though I imagine it will have its biggest impact in end-of-set market buyouts.
Your base is mine!
