I need to update my comments on this.
I have joined my first Alliance and made donations. I was mistakenly under the impression that one person could donate the ‘max’ to another person. Meaning one person could donate the full amount someone was requesting or any portion of it. If someone requested 1,000 DNA I would be able to donate 100, 400 or 1,000 towards their request. I was incorrect in that assumption.
I am only allowed to donate 4 or 5 times a small amount for each request. It looks like much less than one darting session worth of DNA.
For someone to run out of a certain requested DNA they would have to be donating to everyone who requested it and people would have to be requesting it constantly.
I also see folks requesting Rare fused DNA, such as SuchoTator, Diplo and all. I know they figure this saves them doing the fusing, but these requests go basically unfilled. Requesting the base ingredients would be more productive, but less attractive to the person requesting them of course.
I set my donation abilities on the Dino’s that I have in abundance. I will not trade any that I do not see in abundance nor will I dump Arena exclusive DNA. Even though they may get many requests, I am not going to part with them. If I did have a rare that I dart constantly I would be more than willing to part with some of it. I am not going to donate all my supply of any Dino DNA to anyone though, sorry.
That said, I do have several Dino’s that are in high demand as I hunt L4 Park exclusively. My whole hunting ground is a neighborhood with many small parks so they spawn everywhere. Stego for one, I dart them all day long and am more than willing to max out all requests for them.
So, what I did was put out in my Alliance what I had in abundance that I am willing to trade. I am not going to fill requests for other DNA as I do not have them in abundance. DNA that I dart all day long is only what I am willing to trade. Selfish? Perhaps. I am not going to give away Posto just because someone requested it when I only have a thousand DNA in storage. If I had 40,000 in storage I would be more than happy to spread the wealth.
Bottom line. There are 8 or 9 Dino’s that I am willing to max all requests for because I have them in abundance. If everyone trades what they dart all the time no one should be running out of anything. It is only when folks trade away Dino’s they rarely see or may need, that there is an issue. And yes, I realize that many of the desirable DNA requests are for ones that everyone needs. I need them also and am not going to be giving them away.
