No Protection for CEO Corps Status: Please read our response

Detailed Description:

The recent rule change gives CEO controlled corps protection from war. This will have the greatest effect on wars in C3s and small countries. It has been fixed to not have the CEO corps count towards the war index but this leaves no way to remove these corps from a country. In effect the game has created a condition that multi national corporations can have companies in third world countries but not have to suffer any of the risks (of war or other harm). Already making a company a "national corp" is no cheap action (unlike in a third world or small country where they are take over for "pennies on the dollar" if any price is offered at all) now removing the war danger makes the game a none threat condition for CEOs. ------------- PROPOSAL: Remove the protection for CEO corps. VOTE YES = Support removal of CEO corp protection (makes more of a world econimic simulation), or, VOTE NO = Keep the new CEO corp protection where it is (insolates CEOs from real world type eve! nts and makes countries more of a non-factor in the game).

43 gamers voted for the proposal.
40 gamers voted against the proposal.

The proposal has been ACCEPTED.

W3Creative reaction:

This is not a big vote winner. CEO corporations are not changing the balance of war. If you conquer a country it is much better for you if these corporations are not destroyed because they employ many people and they are much better for your country than any state owned corporations.

CEO owned and public corporations pay much more in taxes and contributions to the country than any state corporation will ever pay.

There is also no reason to punish CEO players because the country is in war. They are in trouble anyway because many of their workers are in the army and may die in bombings and the workforce will decline.

Third world countries would love to have large corporations building factories. Countries where it happens are coming out of poverty, Africa, where it does not happen, is lagging.
