    Might I suggest allowing blueprint trading. Kind of like you did with trading cards when you were a kid. Maybe you got 2 of the same or you really want to get a whole set and do not care to spend the money for diamonds. I only thought of this because I one piece from 5 different buildings and when I research them there is only one of them I care to build.

    This could be something that could be done only within guild or neighborhood because I know not everyone wants to be part of a guild and out of guild trades could be charged forge points

    only 1:1 trades should be allowed

    I just thought it might soothe some of the drop rate blues and add to the appeal of trades

    I'm all for this, and many from my guild would like a trading BPs idea as well.

    The problem is that each of us keeps getting BPs from different GBs instead of getting more from that one we desperately desire (or -need-, if we're talking about the poor souls that need one with a defense bonus as they'd like to stop some of the plundering). Now, with the current drop rates, it could be a year before non-diamond players get around to building a single GB. This won't let anyone build theirs in a day, but it will definitely lower the time till you build one.

    The trading should obviously be 1:1 and people could give away the BPs they do not want and request a BP from a GB they want to build. To make it more fair, maybe you can limit the request only to those GBs that you already have at least 1 BP of. I you have no BPs of that building you shouldn't have any knowledge of it and it shouldn't be available for you to trade for. But this -will- help you get 9 BPs from the same GB way faster than the current rate.

    P.S. Also, you're not allowed to have 2 accounts per world, assuming that's what you meant with your "2nd". Sorry if I got that wrong!

    This seems like a good way to get rid of duplicate blueprint sections.

    TERRIFIC IDEA! I'd would like this great idea extended to private trading between Friends and/or guild members.

    You got to bid in other peoples Great Building and you must polish and motivate only ( iron, bronze and so on ) the age GB you are after if you do this you can get the necessary blueprints needed in a week or two, I have done it. Took allot of flipping coin and forge points but I did it.

    What do you mean, "only"? You can also get them from plundering. Or, are you saying that plundering causes a problem with Great Buildings?

    You misunderstood me, what I'm saying.. the best way to get BP's is to find someone in your guild or hood that has the GB you want and go bid and take top spot each level of the upgrade, also polishing and motivating the age/era building that corresponds to the GB you are working for for example Zeus is a bronze age GB so u would try and polish and moto all bronze buildings... Polish and Motivating has worked better for me than plundering for them.

    same here, I pol/mot EMA buildings every time possible and I have 10 pieces for the Hagia Sophia (some duplicates, still need 2)

    all those pieces came from polish and motivate.

    I suspect all players would like this, but it would never happen. The whole point is so its difficult to collect a complete set. Not to mention, the servers have to find a way to generate some profit as well. If you think this is somehow unfair, try playing some of the other MMRPG games on the net! I'm making no plans to pay for these things, but the costs really are relatively modest when compared to other games should others choose to do so.

    This is akin to asking that we are simply allowed to build them (getting rid of blueprints all together). Obviously no players are going to speak out against this (except of course for possibly those that bought them via diamonds), but don't expect it to be implemented anytime soon.

    So can we also get BP's from plundering? I attack my hood so I can get battle points, but I've recently started plundering the newer players in hope of getting a BP. Or do BP's only come from P/Ming?
    I'm so confused.....

    It would still be difficult to complete a set depending what neighborhood I guess my neighborhood only has one GB and even if i traded I only be able to complete 1 if I got lucky and could find the pieces I needed to trade

    I really like this idea, before this I had taking voting from our GUILD members. I create a questionnaire and got the result. Option ‘A’ Won. Detail of all option are given by:

    As currently game does not giving any benefit if you got a specific addressed F of a specific building. Furthermore, PB is not currently available by paying Medals. Game developer is working on it.
    In parallel I need you voting for the following question:
    What you want after if you got receive a duplicate PB that display in inventory by label ‘x2’ ‘x3’ etc.
    A) TRADING: Want to exchange with other BP that you want to build.
    B) DIAMOND: Want to receive diamond in exchange.
    C) REPLICATION: Want to allow duplication of ‘Great Building’
    D) COMPETITION: Want to use to delete neighbor’s Blue Prints/Deactivating Great Building conditionally.
    E) PROGRESS: Want to self Motivate/Polish an existing building for ever.

    Interestingly (and annoyingly enough) on Cirgard, I have helped a guy out 3 times with his Lighthouse. I am now the proud owner of THREE blueprints for the Lighthouse. Each and every blueprint for this Lighthouse is the upper left piece - the same one!!!! So, helping out the same guy, does NOT guarantee you'll receive different pieces for the same building.

    And I polish/motivate/plunder every chance I get. Got a few BP that way - mostly duplicates there too.

    Very odd.

    I am ALL FOR the trading!
