  Market Idea  

Limit each player to buying a max of 20% of anything.

Thus someone post 10 million minerals of something, each player is limited to being able to only buy 2 million of that mineral. And allows the other 8 million minerals being able to be shared with 4 or more people.

This also prevents a single rich player from buying out the market or abusing the food market by raising the price single handily.

that still means who ever buys the first bit gets the most again if he waits 5 secs and buys another 40%

maybe 40% at a time...with a 5 second in between timer.

After reading all the input here so far....

How about you just enact a limitation on buying for anyone who has over x amount already stored. That way the guy with no goods can buy out a few full stacks, but the guy with 7 billion cant buy 3 bil more right away.

Im not sure that this is a necessary change, but if you really wanted it in place I think basing it off players current stores + what they have on market would be the way to go about it.

The other issue I see is storage of goods. There is only limited space for things like food for instance.

This would cut market transfers by 1/5 as another positive. I like the theory, dunno if there are enough players to do 20% think about it from a seller`s point of view they may not be able to sell their goods which in a fair market would have sold right away especially on TB servers. 50% might be a decent compromise.

just make it so its 20% of the cheapest stack and 100% of stacks at any greater price

It could be tweaked such that they can only by 20% of a stack, but still be able to buy 20% of stacks pending. They could max but they wouldnt buy anything out.

i get Spartan`s point, but for races that need food and goods more frequently, they would still need to be able to max food/goods

What about the tax vitals who have to buy food and goods? Never being able to max food would be kind of ridiculously annoying
