Proposal Trade block

In the same way messages can be blocked, I propose trades from certain players/alliances be blocked in the same way (this would not stop them from accepting your offers on the market unless you make it invisible to them).

Perhaps even an opt in option where only alliances/players you list can trade to you as well.

Do you mean like sanctions like an alliance or player that is attacking you?
The targeted player can pick the faction or player for not being able to trade resources.

Pros
1. The offending player and others will have a harder time getting resources but have to rely on allies.
2. Players will be forced to think about how to get around the block.

Cons
1. Players will look around the block and be more aggressive which is farming ghost cities or a player
2. The blocked player maybe faction may just go after you and take your cities one by one.

Why would you want to block people from sending you resources? Or do you mean that you don't want to be able to see enemies' offers on the market, which is already possible?

Good idea.
A full alliance block seems more buggy to code.
A single player block with the ability to simply paste an alliance roister in the box might run less man hours to make it happen.

The question to ask though, the way grepo is coded would a few thousand trade denials bog you down just as much as a few hundred trades?
Thats the first thing id check if this is implemented.
Food for thought.

The Marketplace already offers several Trade Block options
adding a further level (to a single player) has little extra benefit

Not much spam happening on EN41
Ok but there are people who will send hundreds or thousands of minimum amount trades to land at your city in the minutes before the CS lands causing your game to even force log you out in some cases

That’s what this post is about, no one cares who you trade with in the market lol
