You have great fellows that keep you afloat, there will be penty of players quitting the game not because they don't like the game but because it became "unplayable" I know several players already contemplating this, inlcuding myself on a new world.
Since it's a "new world" the problem is way more prominent. you are constantly struggling to get other bonus goods and like you explained it feels like begging your fellows who are already swamped in scrolls to help you out.
This is a very unhealthy situation for the game, imagine starting the game being unable to aquire crystal and silk because of this drama.
1/3rd of the "new players" are on auto fail mode the second they start this game, even if they are intrested and would have been keepers otherwise.
To the the exactly one neighbor (in FS Antediluvian, to be precise) that has helped me from the beginning: If you happen to see this, I really cannot thank you enough for doing something as simple as accepting my '25' for '25' and now '1200 for 1200' trades for all tiers and cross-tier trades. Faced with this unknown when it comes to scrolls, I am especially grateful to have your continued assistance when you've no real incentive (other than good will) to provide it at all. My sincerest and most genuine thanks and appreciation, despite having already given it, is the only thing I can provide you once more so.. thank you.
My best advise for now, if you can stomach it, is to start a new account, one that doesnt have scrolls as boosted.
It's isuper lame but for the time being you issue will not be solved, this will make your game only worse in the comming months.
Those needs will rise soon enough to 5000-25000, 100.000 and more a week, this might be the point others will no longer be able to help you out.
If I understand your story right you might be in the very first 3 weeks of the game and starting over now might not be as bad as it will be in the future.
Since the US server has many worlds, just login on another 1 in the hope not to het scrolls as boosted, this allows you to improve both city's so it will be easier to abandon the current one once it becomes unplayable while at the same time you have a better start at another one (each world has it's own city with it's own boosted goods)
