You made no inference to the IPO or direct sale of shares Laguna. How do you feel about these?



Ooops... I missed that. Although that may have been have been subconsciously intentional (can I even say that without getting beaten up?).


IPO:
Its nice as it is.

Except a nasty bug that just screws off shareholding and numbers... From time to time, when I IPO from my country, I find that my CEO or the GM already owns the corps, even I though I emitted no order. Other times, however, I already found my shares nicely distributed through my CEOs and IFs, so I don't complain much. :p

But sometimes...
Owner Quantity (%) Price Paid Value
Dies Irae 15,000,000 15.00 % 5,163.23 SC$ 83.80B SC$
Shiva -11,875,002 -11.88 % 4,531.24 SC$ -66.35B SC$
Rain 1,562,499 1.56 % 12,426.24 SC$ 8.73B SC$
Investment Funds in Subjective Reality 1,562,500 1.56 % 20,710.40 SC$ 8.73B SC$

Negative shareholding and they don't add up nowehere near 100%.


Direct Trade of Shares:
Many before me asked for this feature. I asked for this feature myself. Others after me ask for this now.

Let us see the answer to my poll...

Quote:

931. Sell Shares Directly Status: Will be added [ top ]

Detailed Description:

Gives us the option to sell shares directly to CEOs, country and Investment funds. If you have a good a P/E ratio (0.5), after the 1st month you offered, each and every Investment Fund in that world will want a piece of your corp. If you wanted to sell shares to a specific CEO or to the country or even Investment Fund (thinking in the future, since the investment funds will have their share on the future Development Index), you can't. The demand will be too high for the buyer to even request a buying offer. But, if you still had shares to give away and you wanted for that specific person to have those, though luck! Give us the option to sell shares to whoever/whatever we want!

32 gamers voted for the proposal.
10 gamers voted against the proposal.

The proposal has been ACCEPTED.

W3Creative reaction:

We will implement this option. We did not decide how to do it and it will take some time to enter the game.



After many months of W3C's response, now I... don't know. I do not know. If this was added to the game, for some reason I think it'll be somewhat ruin the share market.

To sale directly to someone would imply preference. I do not think that is in line with the notion of a free market.

I understand this would help many players tremendously, but I'm not certain of its implications and consequences. If someone could develop on this, I would appreciate it.


Spending Limits:
You know what would have really been nice? To lower price of weapons, instead of increasing the spending limits. ;P

War continues to be a costly endeavour.
