Market Manipulation

Market manipulations are an interesting part of the game and will remain. However, we have seen many country registrations that are used to purchase large quantities of products while the country is immediately abandoned and the process repeats itself many times.

If a group of players wants to try and influence the market, they should commit real resources and take a risk while doing so. Buying products, using a second account is cheating and causes price changes at no risk at all. Other players are placing orders at unrealistic prices to influence the price without buying the products.

Simcountry has several features that protect players against such actions.

When computing product offerings and requests, only market price orders are counted. Shortages and surpluses are based on market price and give a true picture of the market. This eliminates the influence of fix price orders and offers.

Abandoned countries and their corporations immediately sell their stocks of products on the market, at market price. These products used to be destroyed and will now return to the market.

All orders and offers by non-contributing players will be executed at market price. This takes place independent of the way they were specified. This feature prevents misuse by multi account players who use such accounts to influence the market.
