I wonder just what ever happened to Susan Powter? Remember her, she was the one that used to yell "Stop the Insanity" way back in the late 80's early 90's when some of us had high hair, shoulder pads, blue eye shadow. Anyway as usual I just digressed.

Well GOBS, we have been trying in our own way to do just that, but do realize that things have changed and the prices reflect supply and demand and the new reality of the game. Most of us got more money than Trump although I must admit he has more hair than I. We try to help the newbies in other ways to overcome the new reality. Either way, care to join our Ms. Fish Fingers and join the club? Here is the ongoing thread. We are trying to make a difference with what we have. Been on it for weeks now.

prices are too high.... there are a few players that are keeping prices at insanity levels.....

to the newbies... once you master the museum you will find that all the mini games are free to play and hence and endless supply of coins!

if you need help please just PM me... thank you!

Hey Gobstoppers, i started with help a while back to help newer players and those that needed things at auction, also been annoying as many sharks as possible at the same time, i do a large auction every other day, would really appreciate any help i can get, i have help outbidding sharks but could really use more, I play as Times so if you look up my auction list you can see which items are needed, most are items we have loads of but for some reason the sharks are desperate for them.

I list a lot of expensive items... then "they" just bid them high or buyout at a high price.... if someone needs a hard to find or expensive item please just PM me and I will sell it to you for a regular reasonable price.....listing these items at any price doesn't seem to work... please PM me...!

I'd be curious to know how many of those on the auctions actually know that the game is no longer being updated.

The forum only sees a small fraction of those playing. I first came here because I was stuck on something.. and that was the only reason.

Has anyone ever tried to "friend" one of these sharks and ask them?

LOL I have wondered this myself. I think perhaps they just really really really love the auction part of the game and suspect that even if they knew no updates they would keep on keeping on. They seem to be happy even buying and selling among themselves. I rid my friend list of several people when I saw traits on the auction that I found to be personally incongruent. But as an aside, someone who did not know my game name named me as a shark. I laughed and laughed, as in all things it is perspective!

Even when the game was being updated I did not see the need to amass coin and gold (wish I had on the gold - did not play Spring much at all - did not see the need to buy myself out of AES builds). Yes, short sighted on my part.

As Oddly knows I did try to hold out an olive branch a couple of times and got well and truly smacked with it, Im not sure these people are actually playing the game as we are, i think they are just addicted to the auction, I even tried buying some of their items and made a suggestion they might like to join us in enjoying the game, guess where that one went !!!! I have spent a lot of time annoying them recently and auctioning but I have to play mini games in between and got all my countries and cities to guru, if i didnt do that the game would bore me stupid so dont know how they do it.

That goes to show you its not about the coins but about having control of the market at their own terms.

not the end of the world, three weeks ago when I was able to come on the auction. we had a blast! Times putting things up and us blocking it. it was a hoot. We got the message out to almost all the sharks. Some of them were pilloried and changed their name. Some newbies got the stuff they needed some did not. If someone wants to buy something for $1 and sell it for a million who cares. If someone buys it at that price who cares. Of course we are all going to talk about it as that's just how we roll. lets just make it so someone can have a shot at something if we so wish. None of us have died doing the auction. Let it go hon, its not worth it. Put your stuff out and do what makes the game fun for you and don't get mad , GET EVEN! lol...

I find it great fun and as Mr Blue said we have had a blast, not everyone gets what they need but its really nice when new names appear bidding and getting items so i am happy to keep plodding along till they kick us out of the building!!!

well hopefully all the sharks which happen to be a select few will eventually get tired of chasing their tails. I have listed a bunch of items and will continue to do so... anyone needing an item just Pm me please.... I have more than enough ...
