    I am on my 2nd day in the game and know little. I got a fantasy key and everyone was "gg" etc. Then seconds later a character called Algrthm dm'd me and offered 25 dbs and a tool. He seemed legit and I took the trade, but moments later someone told me I was ripped off. Way later, another experienced player told me I was heavily scammed as he explained more about these crates and prices and whatnot and told me I should go on here to try and get a refund or something of the like, as he said that scamming new players isn't allowed (but doing deals with more experienced players are). I would like the key back in some way and would be willing to forfeit my 25 dbs as I have not used them and quickly learned they are meh value.

    The apple craft staff team probably won't refund your team given the fact you could've asked around to figure out the price and you willingly gave it away ((p sure they count as rares)) dunno tho, gl

    Hey Nermak, I am one of your neighbors in the town and have spoke to you at some point. On Applecraft you will always find others, and yourself, looking to get items for the best price you can buy them at. In Algrthm's case he made an offer and you accepted it. To the book, this was a fair deal even if you found out it is theoretically worth more. On Applecraft sales are final and refunds are only between the player and seller if the seller wants to give a refund. I am friends with Algrthm as well and I know he did not intend to upset you or cause any problems but the sale was agreed upon and he likely already used the key. I am sorry this is not "good" news but always ask chat or discord for a price check on an item before buying/selling.

    Best,
    BrandonT80

    its not considered a scam if u make an offer instead of the buyer making an offer

    bruh 25 db for a key is the high end of the average price for keys on red. thats pretty decent.

    I know many people have said this but 25db and a tool isnt too bad of a price.

    You can also ask in chat what the price of the keys are and negotiate with Algrthm

    People like low prices, what can I say?

    You could always ask algrthm for a refund but he has probably sold it for more (which again is allowed)

    Sorry if I'm just repeating what others are saying :) <3

    You got low balled and jumped at the price, On red 25 db is pretty standard, on blue its probly low because it seems there are more diamonds around. don't know about other severs, Live and learn man, you will get more keys at some point.

    We Are all aware of the smell of red, it can't be helped, we simply can not be bothered to move our cow farms away from our afk fishers.
