1: Inability to group with friends of different nations.
Now some of you are going to say “just make a neutral alt to invite”, the problem with this is that it requires 2 slots or 1 of your friends to leave the group, takes time to make the alt (I spent 30 mins trying to make a new ankama account because there website was bugged), requires you to have 2 clients open (some people can’t do this, either they have slow computers or slow internet), people may also find somebody else whilst you are trying to get invited.
2: Weaker markets.
Now some of you are going to say “but brak/amak markets get stronger” a few points here:
Basing market strength of taxes doesn’t work, due to the war prices of everything have gone up so that makes taxes an unreliable way of measuring the markets because you get more taxes from more expensive things.
Basing markets strength of items on sale is a better way, lets look at this, If you count the amount of items on sale you will see that yes brak/amak markets have got stronger, BUT if you add all the markets together you will see a big drop in the total amount of items on sale.
Just because some people aren't selling on bonta market doesn’t meant that they are going to sell on brak/amak markets, they might just stop selling.
Lets have an fictional example, say before war bonta market had 10 markets points, brak had 3, amak had 3 and sofu had 1, now during war bonta has 5, brak has 4, amak has 4 and sofu has 1, this means that 3 markets points have been lost.
So so far the war means less items on sale at higher prices.
Now somebody is going to say “but the government's need the money”, really? do they? to do what? Change the weather? that doesn’t cost much, Change the challenges? but all the challenges give the same reward now. I’ve been in 2 governments now in different positions and there really isn’t much to spend the money on. Until the government changes happen the government doesn’t need money.
3: Paying to view the markets.
Before when bonta was the main market we had to pay 2k to view the market (travel home is free), now we have to check 3 markets to view all the items this costs us 6k to travel to all 3 markets.
Now some of you are going to say “but we can view our own market for free” not true exactly you have to travel back to your own nation (free) but then you have to pay to return to where you were before (2k).
Because the prices have shot up people are having to mine more kamas meaning that there are more kamas in existence, this means that prices will rise and stay high, but earning kamas is still as hard, this makes it hard for new players.
