    i'm not ruling it out altogether, i'm still thinking about where i might use a market. however, consider...

    the market isn't mobile. if u want to use it for cemeteries, or regularly change which buildings u want to buff, ur gonna have to do a lot of moving around or leave it idle 50 weeks per year! we all have plenty of explorers, good buffs r just as easy to come by as the resources needed for better market buffs. for many ppl, the market will take up a spot usually reserved for a prod building. How many presents will Hades' plan require? gone r the days when we bought everything in 1st 2 days of event. pop isnt the issue it used to be, but i could use those presents on gb houses and floaters and maybe trade and carry on using the old skool system of buffing.

    tbh, i think i just convinced myself.. the market is not for me, but settlers is a very individual game and no doubt some ppl will enjoy using it

    It costs less than 1k gc in materials (on our server) to move the market at lvl4 so moving it to different places wont be an issue at least anyone lvl 60+. I have 34 explorers all max skilled to artefact search and I would not say that rainbows, for example are that easy to come that you could slap them anywhere anytime. The market buffs 20-30 buildings with a couple of clicks for nearly free "24/7", while those 20-30 rainbows are worth 60k-120k coins (on our server) per the 4 days.

    Maybe the best way to use it is to leave it in the shop?

    What a worthless building for the amount of presents we had to spend. Both the Christmas Market and the Christmas Tree. Pointless for high level players, not clearly described by the developers and very expensive in gifts. Thus I call this a BB scam, to force us spend on them, and then need to buy presents with gems in order to get something worthy. BlueByte SHAME ON YOU!

    OK, so I currently have a market that can buff several buildings around it at +200% for 12 hours, every 12 hours, for a cost of paper and sausages. I have spent a grand total of ZERO gems to get the presents for the upgrades. Most of my presents have come from my explorers, but I have also use the TO. All being well, I'll be upgrading it to L4 in the next few days.

    I will need to spend some considerable time and resources to get the optimal outputs from my market buffs, but in no way do I see it as pointless or a scam. Actually, I'm quite enjoying the puzzle of which workyards to place around it.

    It's in the dev diary, 2k ewp and 2k granite so it's very cheap to move.

    What is bothering me is that you can only use 1 christmas market at the time.
    In the dev diary nothing is mentioned about that. Now i have two standing but can only use 1 at the time.
    Okay benefit is that i can use 1 every 12 hours instead of waiting for 24 hours.
    But still it's a bummer....
