Now to clarify Willard's email...



As Jozi said during the chat:

we think that public corporations should be public.
We have limited the number of corporations your CEO can own in your own country.

If your CEO owns 100% of the shares, we consider it an error in the game.
We know there are some tricks that allow you to transfer most of the shares but it is not the intention of the game.
If it was, we could just lift the limit.

The gamemaster

What he meant by error is something that shouldn't be.
The game does not consider it to be an error, W3C does.

At the moment, the game does nothing with intention to prevent an enterprise to acquire 100% of the shares nor does W3C.
What we have is a glitch that distributes shares like they were candy most of the times to the Gamemaster Corporations or the player's enterprises.

The game does not force you to sell shares nor does it restrict shareholding purposely.

Then we have the cases where an enterprise ceases to exist and the shares are transferred to Gamemaster Corporations.
Since the enterprise does not have auto buy and sell off and it does not alter its shareholding targets, the only way to gain those shares is to bid on the corp when Gamemaster Corporations holds it and, even so, it is no guarantee that all of GM's shares will be sold to you.
But this case was overlooked by W3C, so it should be looked has something done without intention.

That is why I asked for the auto feature to be buy and sell shares be turned on in Gamemaster Corporations...

Is everyone clear now?
The summary is: the game does not purposely restricts your participation in the share market.
What we have is some small mistakes restricting it.

Now, if someone would do me the favor of spreading some aloe vera on my back and and fine southern european buttocks, I would appreciate it.
Got another sunburn that needs some lovin. ;)
