if history repeats itself the gc market will correct itself on its on in a few weeks or sooner. when the financial services feature on countries was initally created, there was much gnashing of teeth about the disequalibrium created in the market. that anguish was shared by me too. however, within a few weeks things had smoothed out and some of us began rat holing cash in our ceo's. fortunately i didn't do this for long and began moving cash into gc's. so now this new feature does not effect me. the cash market does however adversely effect the newer player who can't pay up to 1t/coin. that sends them back to the gm with real cash to buy coins. i don't think this is a conspiracy on w2c's part but does probably make some players see that paying out more cash to extend membership ad infiniteum isn't a very smart thing.
so, what's the solution? let players have as much cash as they want and eliminate the financial service charge. as i and others have stated, what can you do with 100t in cash in a country. effectively, it's dead money. i'd much rather buy gc's, and trade in my 500gc's a month for real cash. and yes, i consider that an added incentive to keep playing and trading cash for coins. it sure keeps me interested.
