Wheat Bonus Stele's Collapsing too quickly ?

Postby Gazoo » Mon Oct 22, 2012 9:22 pm

As of recent, the last couple months, the Nubian Trader Wheat Bonus Stele's seem to be Collapsing at a much Quicker rate then they use to.

My Cities are in 3S, 4S, 38N & 41N, in those particular Nomes the Stele's are Collapsing every few days. The Stele's use to last for weeks.

In my opinion a Collapse every few days is too quick. A Stele's 'Up' time should be returned to the 'every few weeks' timer they use to be on.

Nowadays the too quick Collapse is even worse because there are fewer players per Nome, many of those being Inactive, thus usually requiring one person to contribute All of the needed Lux Goods. That's a lot of Lux Goods if you consider having to Solo Contribute for 4 Nomes every few days.

Thanks in Advance for any reply's.

PS If I've noticed correctly as a Nome increases its amount of Cities, and each City increases in level, thus then the Stele Lux Good amount Increases.

Too help decrease the Burden on those of us that need to Solo Contribute, you could omit any Inactive Cities from being considered in the Stele Lux Good needed requirement.

City 1: Stele Collapses in 10/17, 10/19
City 2: Stele Collapses in 10/16, 10/18, 10/21

Today's date: 10/23

I'll be expecting a collapse in city 1 soon. I just don't bother with donating lux anymore. It's not worth it, especially with inactive and vacation mode cities bloating the cost.

And just as a log back in, both steles have collapsed.

Update:
City 1: Stele Collapses in 10/17, 10/19, 10/24
City 2: Stele Collapses in 10/16, 10/18, 10/21, 10/23

Today's date: 10/24

Cost to put the steles back up is 6860 lux total. Nubians not getting any business from me.

(EDIT)
Update:
City 1: Stele Collapses in 10/17, 10/19, 10/24
City 2: Stele Collapses in 10/16, 10/18, 10/21, 10/23, 10/27

Once you stop donating the cost will start to decrease, I bet you could find a post around here somewhere that had some great details. I have no ideas about the timing.

I used to donate 50% and would wait till others donated or the price dropped to accept what was there.
