So when the next server comes out and it's got instant buy activated, are you guys going to boycott it?

Richard asked for some opinions on Instant buy and this petition is a response to that request. That is all it is.

Messing about with this on Beta world. This system doesn't look too bad in all honesty. Very expensive to gold it up. But in the marketplace you can offer your own resources for a gold return from those large gold using players. Initially i was dead against this new system but i'm really starting to believe its a winner.

Can you put a link to the thread we can add our names to please, in the top post?

I can see where ppl would find this useful, I do use gold but sparingly, and every so often this would be incredibly useful ... BUT .. I know many Gold fanatics who would misuse it in the manner described. Already it is an uneven battle for regular users agains Gold users, I played Grep for quite a while without Gold, but as I played more, and got bigger, it became that the only ppl I could hit was smaller guys, the bigger guys were using gold and I could not compete. In the end, I started using gold too, it was either that, or sim, or give up playing - I know ppl DO play without gold, but they are always in the low or middle echelon.

This IS a good feature if used sparingly ... but Heavy Gold users don't know about sparingly, a player who spends 200+ per month on Grep will not hesitate to use this to save his cities.

We've already found out that the Cost is WAY too high for any practical use, or to be abused in the manner described in your post.
