[DISCUSSION] Card trading with puppet nations

Postby Lofia » Wed May 18, 2022 4:00 pm

As the title suggests, are trading cards with puppet nations allowed either in good or bad faith? Good faith example: For nation collections. Bad faith example: For jacking up prices during auctions.

This would go better in the Trading Cards forum. As for the question, it would be allowed (if you're referring to card farms I'm assuming).
I don't stand with Ukraine. I don't stand with Russia. I don't stand with the US, NATO, or EU. I stand with the innocent civilians being caught in the crossfire while the politicians, the media, and weapons manufacturers continue to stoke division and conflict in their geopolitical chess games and treat the people of Ukraine as mere pawns. Zelensky is a corrupt, opportunist oligarchic politician who is not fit to lead Ukraine through anything and wants to inflate his own ego and offshore accounts.

The game as currently coded apparently doesn't keep track of which nations are "puppet" ones, anyway.
The Confrederated Clans (and other Confrederated Bodys) of the Free Bears of Bears Armed
(includes The Ursine NorthLands) Demonym = Bear[s]; adjective = ‘Urrsish’.
Population = just under 20 million. Economy = only Thriving. Average Life expectancy = c.60 years. If the nation is classified as 'Anarchy' there still is a [strictly limited] national government... and those aren't "biker gangs", they're traditional cross-Clan 'Warrior Societies', generally respected rather than feared.

I'm new to this, so I didn't know puppet trading was allowed until a few days ago.

when i first red this i thought this was a discussion on the ethics of it not the legality of it
Contrary to the belief of Coffin-Breathe, I am not a puppet. But instead a puppet master.

Then lets start it...

Surely, a game that is mostly consist of card puppets and puppets alike is not a healthy game impression however encouraging NSers to have many puppets particularly in R&D and Card trading keeps the player fanbase healthy and alive for a game that has limited gameplay mechanics built in it.

Easiest solution to inflation would be to WA lock card drops, but that would also force players who aren’t WA on their mains to join it which would be inconvenient to R/D pilers. I’m of the opinion that card inflation has pretty much bankrupted the exclusivity of rarer cards but I have no idea how it would be fixed. I’m sure that the admins who know more about how this site works have discussed this plenty, so there may be a solution that I’m not aware of. The methods of preventing WA multies could possibly work to identify unique players, although I don’t know if those technical limitations would translate to the card system.

If we ever get a season 3 I would hope that there could be some way of letting the player lock their card drops to once account so that seasons 1 and 2 could be left as the hyper-inflated ones. Maybe a finite number of cards mixed with a hypothetical single account restriction would increase focus on the rarity of the cards, but that just opens up the possibility of people who already have high banks hoarding them (or trolls intentionally junking every card they get to mess with the market). More frequent series installments could maybe take care of the rarity issue since there would be a pressing time limit to collect cards, unlike season 2 which seems like it won’t be ending anytime soon unless I missed a mod announcement.
