Empires & Allies Players! – Get Metals From friends!

Hey everyone! Players of Empires & Allies that are over level 14 or so should like this.  If you are lower than level 14, please skip this for now, and come back to it when you’re higher level.

Essentially, this is a page of ask-for links for metals. What you do is this: pick a metal that you need a lot of, or that you want to stock up on. Select the corresponding picture below, and then send requests to as many friends as it will allow.  Then, sit back and watch the metals roll in as you play. You will literally see when someone answers your request because a pop-up will show up at the bottom of the play window.. Similar to this: 

                        In this example, I asked for copper, and that is what I got!

So anyway, here are the links:

            Aluminum               Copper                     Gold                           Iron                 Uranium

I have to reiterate that if you are under level 14, none of this will work for you. Come back when you’re bigger though!

I don’t know how often you can use them… I’ve asked for stuff every 6 hours or so, and it seems like my friends list refreshes so I can send to the same people.

Hope you find this useful. Don’t forget to share with your friends!
