Chanya, love, i’m seriously worried about you. You need a vacation girl. A nice relaxing vacation.

Shes beyond the point of saving. I believe ol’ Hammond should trade her in for her younger sister ‘Chinaya’. Heard the gals fairly reasonable…

Here’s an other awesome deal. Lots of VIPs for something that is going to disappear very soon. I don’t know the stuff Chanya consumes but it must be great.

Her offers for loyalty points seem to be the most consistently terrible. Compared to the amount of time it takes for me to collect each of these it’s not remotely a fair trade. As such I have only once or twice taken a LP trade and only when she’s offered a dino card that I particularly wanted at that time. I did take one for an aquatic reef as much trouble as I’ve had in getting those even though I still felt she was wanting way too many points for it. Supply and demand rules in effect I guess!

I didn’t grab a screenshot, but I had an offer to give Ms. Diogo 11,000 loyalty points for a Proceratosaurus. You had to be a VIP to make the trade, so it wasn’t an option for me. If I were, it would have been a good (and worthwhile) opportunity to trade for this ultra-unique dinosaur.

It’s the only way I was able to capture the creature, this is back from March:


I have done the trade twice.

I guess this is another pro to being VIP!

I didn’t realize those trades were only for VIP members, so yes that’s another plus. I also agree with @HanSoloWannaBe in that the VIP membership is not a requirement to enjoy the game. My post up above was meant to layout the benefits of spending money on the VIP membership before any other aspect of the game as I feel the rewards you get from the membership fee far exceed that of any other in game purchase, by a long shot.

I did trade 11k DB for a proceretosaurus maybe a month back. For me, DB yes, VIP points, no. Same trade has showed up couple times, but I passed. Not atrocious given this dino isn’t one you can get from Walmart or Target.

I was curious to see the stats on him being so rare, but should have guessed, you can tell just HOW rare it is from the almost total lack of stats on his wiki page!

Trade harbor’s been bad since the first 1-2 weeks of its existence. It used to offer Hybrids (Up to Indominus Rex sometimes even for coin, which was the most powerful back then) and you could even buy tournament creatures… Any creature not owned which was purchased from this older Trade harbor would permanently unlock them. You could get MASSIVE Dino bucks, food, VIP points, whichever your heart desired and the cost was relatively minimal. sigh those were the days…

Wow. I wish I was playing back then. How long ago was this?

17-30 October 2016 when the Trade Harbor launched.

At 7:14 he gets a Koolasaurus for 20,496 DNA and TBH those kinds of trades were quite common. You’d see top hybrids for DNA, food, or even coin. Tournament creatures were rare (and only very briefly available in the Trade Harbor) but I got one myself- picked up an Edestus for super cheap.

After the first week or so tournament creatures were stripped right out of the Trade Harbor, but the hybrid trades kept on going for several months.

There were so many Indominus Rex’s in the early Trade Harbor that I was able to create a second Level 40 I-Rex just off of trades (which I later used to Fuse Indoraptor).

True there were still a ton of bad trades just like there are now, but there were a bunch more Dino bucks- even the smallest of buildings routinely offered big Dino bucks…

And otherwise there seemed to be many more “blockbuster,” trades as I personal called them; wherein you could trade for upwards of 40 million food or 7,000+ DNA on single trades. Sometimes I still see big food or DNA trade offers, but nowhere near as good as when the Trade Harbor first launched.
