i only started playing this game a short time ego and it seems fun. After the 3 months however I will quit the game if the resets will continue, which i think they won't.
I cant imagine anyone paying for an online game, it takes away one of the main reason why online games are played away. People might as well buy a proper game.
I think this is a stupid get rich quick strategy that will fail misreably.
w3c has got to face the reality, they wont be making millions upon millions any time soon. Introdcuing the resets will mean that in effect much less people will play this game, especially given the nature of this game. It has a steep learning curve and people who will put in the effort to understand it will not like their country being reseted so often, and most of them they will certainly not pay for some online game.
w3c has a good thing going for it in this game but they certainly are not sitting on a gold mine.
Face the facts w3c

Any more on the one who said he was looking into a class action suit? Seriously, this might be a good idea if it didnt cost for the suit to us? Great Britain had a real good point of the kids who are playing...not got the cash to pay for playing the game...Like Nickelodeon is free to kids and so many other kid games online. In other types of buisness , if a product has been selling on the shelf for a certain price for a certain length of time as a sales price they have to sell it at that price as a regular price at that same amount for at least another six months before they up the price as a normal price. by law. its a commerce thing..might be an avenue to look into.

oh by the way ..this is opus or Puffy!...sorry for the fellow who managed to get one of the countries I did have taken just for war..to get to the other side of the map.. yes some of the countries were just linking steps to be able to float my army around to help other fed member at war...remember I had 29 countries then and 4 federations belonging to me and haveing on country in a fed..with all of my feds in allance with several other feds.. we helped each other out when certain multis and idiots attacked underdeveloped countries... with lots of cash.. but then this was an entirely different game. Thats when a reset made it so you couldnt attack coutries unless they were in a certain radius of your country! About half of my countries were functioning in good order then ..the others were still war stricken and rebuilding..then I got seriously ill and had to drop out of the game..when I got back a couple months later resets had countries own populations atacking in a civil war uprising, not just mine but KB world wide. Now I am not complaing of resets to make the game better..I am complaining of resets design to make the game futile in order to make us pay for the right to play without resets. This is not what drew us to play this game. We have been stripped of privilages that we had here without representation. I refuse to pay for this game due to the fact that we are not fairly treated with the same respect they expect us to give them for a product which continually degrades itself. Whos to say that once they get us to pay the paltry 5 dollars in the paying worlds a month that they decide to up the price and if we dont like that they will reset that game which now has the priviliage of no resets, telling us we can always move our single country to the new and improved (cough cough) world which now cost X amount of bucks more because they say it has no resets there? Little by little , reset by reset they have made this game a piece of junk, that is no more than getting a teaser cd disk off a cereal box to get you to buy the whole game. Sooner or later they will , in my opinion require us to buy a cd set to upload to our pc's then have us pay for the time you are online like the game Everquest! Tell me what's there to stop them? What laws are there that protect us the consumer of this game from this highway robbery? No the resets are by right totally unconstitutional by my opinion and only a tool to force us to buy what we had for free. And that my friends is moraly unreprehencible to me and possibly illegal! As ever Puffy.

If you don't like the resets puffy... Go to school, study Computer Science, buy 3 or 4 high end servers and tons of bandwidth. Write your own world simulation game and give everyone FREE access to it with no resets.

He's got a point there deutchland ... maintaining the system is an enormus cost ... I know from some fellow friends that have started something like this ... (dunno what it's called) but never the less End the restes . Leave the transfer button there so we can transfer as many countrys as we can but don't force uss to do it

Hand of God... You must change your countries name.. try WhomademegodandwhyamIhere dedicated to a player who loved this game and is now gone. He owned about 30 countries himself, the first resets gradually messed his countries up. He was a top notch player.. ZNow here comes you , definately a noob tothe game as you have not yet found out how to hide your info so as no one could see how defenceless you are, you dont belong to a fed that would help you in time of war, given you spending habits to date you will be in too much debt to even be able to buyarmy stuff to defend yourself. Btw you cannot fight back with just defensive army. You defence will only defend till its all bommed out, and you could lose your country in a days time should someone attack you! If your finace index goes any lower say under 60% you are a dead duck in water! You cant build schools as they will be destroyed as soon as you build them because your teachers are dying and or retireing faster than you can teach them..you have no unemployed teachers right now...and lossing over 5000 teachers this year alone next year over 6000..you have no way to get them fast enough..Also you need medium level managers..you have no unemployed ones which you need not only for you to build schools but for your corporations. to get them you must educate them..vicious circle here..The more defensive you buy takes away managers from your corps and schools.. You have however got a clue to give out loans to other countries for some income but it wont be log for you to deplete the money you have now as you are building too fast. As for your corporations they are not fully staffed, and not producing at a full rate yet you keep building more corporations with no employess to fill them..You proably havent even looked at your employment index to see how many people are going to die or retire soon have you.. Heres another piece of info...all you need now is for a CEO build in your coutry and start grabbing all your managers and employees from you especially when thy do effectivity upgrades on you and there is nothing you can do about it except go to war with another country (a neighboring one) and try to bomb the offending ceo out..Oh wait I see you have no offensive or strategic army to do this and it takes 6 game months to build them! And when youdo build them you take away employes from where lol...your corporations are not producing at peak as they already lack employees and they are all in serious debt. you are over taxeing them as well. Now with all the work you willhave to do to get things running correctly..here comes a reset in December...got that there will be a reset in December!! So all strategic and offensive armies you have built will be taken away, your cash will be taken away from your country. Your country will go into further debt, and building will be destroyed. And with that reset you will lose all but one country that you own! This will probably be your first reset..come back to this board and tell me what you have to say then! Tell me what a deplorable state you are in and how you feel about being forced to buy a game to play it right, that you have been playing for free for the past two years. We came here playing this game as a FREE game..not a temporary free trial game as it now is we were never told that this was a temporary trial game, and that is what we think is wrong about the resets, designed to make us buy. If they want to make it a paying game just close Kebir Blue totally instead of fucccccking it up more and dickkkkking around with us and all the work, time and heart we have put into this game. Furthermore, you have not played this game long enough to judge me so shut the hell up! Puffy.

i don't think i wil work maybe we cant ask for a compromise between that of the players and that of the corporation like a reset once every year what dou you goys think of that?

Hand of God, just to let you in on something..I have made a bid on one of what could be a better corp in your country..see if you know how to keep it..Ceos' come first it still seems here as my ceo account didn't get too much of a reset. Then after I get the country see if you can keep upwith the upgrades I will need to make it run right? Watch a effectivity upgrade steal your your high tech employees from your other corps... Like you know it won't really matter to you because this is a temporary game now and resets will be made again in December.. but in the interim I think I will just have so much fun messing with your corps, something to make me stay in the game at least till the next reset lol....You see one of the resets that should have been made was to be able to bid back with our countries corps so not to lose our best corps to a ceo attack.. another was for them to make it so countries corps to be able to tranfer funds between the corp and the country, to help eliminate debts within a corp or to fund the countrys needs, without high taxes..but no lets not make the countries able to do this.. so some have ceo accounts to out bid a bidder on a corp or to bid on a defunct private corp etc...instead of war, but you wouldnt know anything about that huh? Anyway try to figure out how to keep this corp I bidded on. It can be done but um you got to figure it out, it is not easy to keep your corp when a ceo does a hostile takeover of your corp. Just imagine what it would feel like to lose a corp you have worked hard to get it to be worth 400k B or more with a huge amount of cash, and a ceo takes it from you and you as a president cant do a darned thing about it!..Puffy
