About tradecarts and markets

I have a noob question but I don't have the game installed to try it, so I appreciate any answers

Lets assume I have 40 tradecarts. My ally and I both have markets opposite to each other, so each tradecart can carry up to lets say 100 gold each. Suppose I send all my tradecarts at once to my ally's market and when they are all full with 100 gold each, I suddenly build a new market next to my ally's market and I send all my tradecarts there instead of sending them to the market far away.

What happens in that case? Do I get instant gold? or the amount of gold from each tradecart is reduced (or recalculated) when I build the new market?

Thanks :smile:

It works the way you say @juancho128 it is a trick abused on michi nothing maps.

I'll explain how it works:

Both players build markets on both sides of the map and target the opposite market as 'gathering point'. The trade carts will do the whole path of going, but on the way back they will go to the closer one, and give you full 100+ gold. However on their next trips they will again go to the closer one and give you only 1 gold on each trip or less.

On this michi maps players do the initial trip and then every now and them retask the trade carts to go to the oppposite market. Afterwards as they can't keep tasking them manually each players deletes one market and leaves the carts alone.

You can easily test this on a scenario.

I just tested it and it isn't working on 5.7. Even if I build market after the tradecart take gold - when I click tradecart to this new market - gold just recalculated.
