Market Section Rules

  • Market Section Rules

    Please remember this section is provided for your convenience only. All trades are done at your own risk. The staff do not enforce/police trades that are arranged on the boards. We recommend that all traders ensure that the lowest-ranked trader delivers their resources first; thereby allowing a degree of protection from the pushing rules.
    The rules below also adhere to other rules and guidelines and should be taken into context as such.

    Offering accounts, resources, attacks etc, for real money is absolutely forbidden and is a direct violation of the Gameforge Terms & Conditions

    What does this post cover?

    Resource trading rules

    Moonshot trading rules

    Resource Trading

    • If posting details of a single transaction, you must state the amounts you wish to trade, the resources you offer and seek, plus your preferred trading rate.
    • If posting to find a regular trading partner, you should include as much useful information as possible; e.g. details of how often you wish to trade, the amount and your preferred rate. However, this information can be exchange via pm if preferred.
    • Trades that mean an unfair profit to the higher ranked player by falling outside the following range of ratios will be considered as Pushing cases:
      3:2:1 Where each unit of deuterium is worth 2 units of crystal or 3 units of metal.
      2:1:1 Where each unit of deuterium is worth 1 unit of crystal or 2 units of metal.
      These trade rates are valid for all universes at
    • For universes with Lifeforms active, players can donate food to other players without limit, but cannot be used in trades for metal, crystal or deuterium (where the resource receiver would be higher ranked).
    • It is forbidden to manipulate legal trade rates by giving unfair advantage to a higher ranked player (example and not limited to this: buying expensive and selling cheaper the same resource to the same player, selling scraped fleet or defence at low trade rates).
    • Trades, recycling help & ACS splits must be completed within 72 hours.
    • These rules may not apply to chaos universes

    Moonshot Trading

    • If requesting a moonshot(s) you must state in game username, coordinates, % moonshot chance preferred, preferred ship used for moonshot, dates/times, these details can be discussed in private via PM with both parties.
    • If requesting a moonshot(s) trade you must state all the above as well as the amount of chances (attack waves) you can provide and with which ships, these details can be discussed in private via PM with both parties.
    • Be aware the higher ranked player can be reported for pushing if the DF created by a lower ranked players moonshot is recycled and not sent back to the lower ranked player, or an equal number of moonshots providing the same DF amount is sent towards the lower ranked player.

    On completion of a trade or if the trade is no longer valid, the topic creator should request the post to be closed by commenting 'please close'.
