To be an offical broker (from memory) you need to:

Send an ingame or forum message to Stephen

To become an official broker, you have to

1. Send pm to StephenM
2. Convince him you are the right choice among others
3. Wait for a vacancy (an official broker leaving or going inactive for a long time)... or convince StephenM AND the current brokers that more brokers are needed
4. Wait and wait a bit more until StephenM gets back to you
5. Don't piss off the current official brokers while waiting because they would probably be consulted by StephenM as to who should be selected when a new broker has to be chosen.

... and some warnings,
- Don't think it is a glamourous job to be an official broker, it takes a lot of time, work, and patience
- Don't think official brokers get a lot of benefit... in fact, we don't have extra cash or planes when starting, nor do we have extra discounts when buying planes for our own use.
- Think twice before applying, this is an obligation to the game
- We do help with other things in the game, such as beta testing, searching and inputting data, thinking up new feature suggestions, writing the AM Wiki... etc.
- Think twice before applying... there is no turning back!

Too many people are asking this question. Stop asking. If you can't even read the forum, you are not qualified anyway.

There is deffinetly a lot of obligation and it is time consuming especially when you get those orders for 50+ aircraft for immediate delivery.  And yes there is a lot of waiting for StephenM to get back to you :lol: but it can be rewarding in its own ways.

Someone please APPLY.  We need another broker! Especially since we only have 1 broker currently taking orders!

Applying doesn't mean you would get the job, nor that there would be brokers added. :wink:

Its not his fault or responsibility, its the design of the broker system that is effecting him.

one part of the playerbase screams "BROKERS ARE UNFAIR" (because they think that the other players are better due to getting free planes from brokers or something), the other half screams "MORE BROKERS WE CANT GET PLANES".

i wish players would start seeing as human element that tries to increase gameplay, that is you can do more "human" deals than just ordering planes clickety click.

with the minority who think that brokers are a good service to the community, they just dont happen to be of help to everyone. i do think that players who outvalue brokers dont need their help but they are a great way to offer financing to new players who cant pay all the money up front.
the further down the ranks you are, the more you benefit from using the broker system.
last round, i started in LATE LATE 2003 (oct), it was great being able to order planes ahead of the own growth, without paying before delivery.
now, this round, i am one of the more wealthy players, and quickly gave up trying to use the broker system ;) i think i have used less than 10 broker orders through the whole round so far, simply because it dont really help me to order one martin 404 a day from a broker, when i have to buy 50 to sustain growth

Exactly the same way I think as well.  D Express gave me some good leases on ATR72s which got me really going.

I agree with you two. Last round when I came in late the brokers were all way bigger than me and could always afford to broker me planes. Today I'd be interested in someone who could broker me 10 super constellations, but which broker is able to offer me that?

Will there be an opening for an official broker soon since Hampo is leaving?
