Selling Donations Price Points

So, what should you get for your $20 on behalf of a player who's got way more infrastructure than you do?

$6 million?

Think again...

Now, if you're in an alliance and donating for another guy in your group, you already get benefits of protection, coordination, camaraderie, etc. But is that enough to take up the slack for the value you purchased for a higher up? You can judge for yourself with the chart below. I start it at 400 infra and show the cost to buy 200 infra at each 100 infra thereafter. You'll be able to calculate the value of the 200 infra you could have bought for yourself vs. the value for the guy you're buying it for.

For the sake of argument, I'm assuming monarchy and five factories. Adjust these values accordingly for your resources. I'm not gonna do more math, though. Anyway... for the values...

EXAMPLE: A player at 400 infra can buy 200 infra for $1.8 million. Not bad. But if he sells his donation for $6 million, he could get nearly 600 levels of infra. Schweet. But let's say there are two guys who would like him to do a donation deal, one with 2000 infra and one with 9000 infra. Mr. 2000 saves only $800K with the deal, but Mr. 9000 saves $69 million. Clearly, this donation means MUCH more to Mr. 9000, and Mr. 400 should be ready to ask for more than $6 million for that donation deal. He can decide what works for him. I've suggested 25% among friends or keeping track of BIG favors, but you're free to decide for yourself.

Remember, you don't get what you deserve: you get what you negotiate.

That's just retarded. For example, I wouldn't pay 10-15 million for a donation... I'd simply go to someone who'd be willing to get six million and fifty tech.

What you're trying to suggest is extortion on a game. Rofls.

You forget that although the cost of infra increases with size, the benefits of infra decrease sharply. People in the top 100 buy infra because they have nothing better to due with their money, not because it will improve their nation significantly. Explain how someone would pay, say, 30M (and fill their aid slots for months) for a benefit of 50K a day, instead of using the aid for tech deals/alliance aid.

For those checking my maths: I'm just using the formula from the nation building page. YMMV if you have more cool resources for minimizing infra costs. And, yes, locking up aid slots for a year to get 200 more infra isn't what buyers are willing to pay. If they can find people who don't know how much more the infra costs at a higher level, then they get the 200 for $6 million. If not, then the sellers and buyers have to find a price.

Non-monetary considerations can always be part of the deal: adding tech means sending more stuff per aid slot to maximize those channels. Given that the $20 also buys 40 tech, a big boy can afford to ship off, say 50 tech with $3,000,000 per installment.

Also, if one is in an alliance, one has to weigh the benefits of soaking the leaders for more cash vs. having the leaders help newbie nations, as Fonzoland points out.

For the large nation to be willing to buy, he'd have to get the infra for much less than purchasing it himself. For a small nation to be willing to sell, he should seek the best price possible. If he can hold out for $9 million and 150 tech, there are players who might deem that affordable - for whatever reason.

But this *is* for $20 in real money. I made two donations because I felt this game was as fun as anything else I'd plunk $40 on at a computer store and I'm loving it. But large nations are also capable of spending their *own* money, at no cost to their nation in CN terms. Getting small nations to pay $20 on their behalf is potentially exploitative from a RL perspective. Doing a tech deal for barely any profit is one thing, but getting a rough deal on $20 of real money is something that has a bit more pain to it.

Even if my math is off - and I know it fails to reflect resource and bonus combos - it's off by a few degrees, not a whole lot. When your infra is very high, the benefit of the donation is quite high.

The other side of this is to show when it's beneficial to start dropping that $20 on yourself. If all a big nation offers to a 1700-2300 infra nation is $6 million, that nation is better served by spending the donation on itself. The higher the infra, the truer this is. $3 million + 50 tech ceases to be a good deal around 900-1500 infra.

For a very young nation, $6 million is amazing stuff, no question about it. But $9 million is even more amazing, and if that very young nation can get it, good for that nation!
