Hey mightymark,

I suspect this is people doing direct trades with one another, as the market/trade interface, as it currently stands, does not support any such "discount" functionality.

It will, though, once we monetise the economy - soon (tm).

Somebody was on the Chat a little while ago and said that if you do a trade with somebody in your alliance it would be a 70% discount.Weird

They must have misunderstood something, or maybe you misunderstood something... or, of course, they could have just flat out lied (either maliciously or as a simple joke).

Most likely they probably just said something like "trading X wood for Y iron, alliance gets 70% discount", which would mean they would each send the adjusted amounts manually to eachother, and you misunderstood that to mean it's done automatically.

the strategy: I accept orders (of resources, products and such) from anyone, those in alliance will get a 70% discount of the original cost of construction, others will get a discount % depending on what relation I or my alliance has with him/her. it is a good strategy for those who are peaceful like me, it makes people more likely to be friendly to me (as it gives a good discount). some may also chose to let me use their army (which I probably won't ever need to) in exchange for what they want so that they don't really have to pay anything (probably).
