Yes, universal--the top spots would have better competition if everything reset at once.

the resets should at least be lengthend and all at the same time its impossible to do anything this way

maybe resets after a year...but prefferadly not at all because some people wanna keep their country but don't have the money for gold worlds.
and if you fuck up and want to start over is no excuse for resets, you can always register a new country to do that.

either you didn't read my post, or you forgot what I was saying.
most new players I've met do not want to reset thier country, even when told how to and why.
they always respond with "I want to see if I can fix it" or something just as dumb.
it's kind of like excess cigarette taxes. it isn't fair, but it almost forces ppl to quite smoking, even when they don't want to.
w3c wants you to start over once in awhile let someone else dominate your region for a change.

look, resets may not make much sence to you but they prevent the same 10 or 15 ppl from dominating the top ranks.
look at my country wartime concubine, if I play my cards right I will never fall from the top 4 ranks because my assests are just too great. the only way for me to drop rank is to take another crap country or win the month...and I add 100B assests every month in cash alone, if left untouched I could easily extend that to 200B or even 300B a month.
how could you ever catch me unless your country is as old as mine? the only way is to build a great economy and drop your taxes to 0%, if you do that you could reach first, but you will not last long.
look at my slaves, if I never reset my slaves will be 2nd, 3rd, and 4th within a month (if I played them as much as my main). Avalon used to have 5 or 6 countries in the top 10 every month, not to mention the other top pros of the game.
point is, you can't have compition in a game that doesn't reset simply because you can't compete with a country that has been around for three years and has 40M population. you can't out assest him, and you can't attack him.
with us sim-addicts that will play this game for years and years to come, we could catch the top ranks, but not every sim-player will devote that kind of time or effort to a game that they can't succeed in. that is soooo true when you have no clue as to what your doing and you set your country back by making huge economic mistakes.
granted the resets are probly too short, but a year would be too long, 6 months is probly the best if everyone reset at the same time. too often have I found a player to attack and build up to do so, then find out the guy is in protection. so far I have yet to find a suitable target to attack that isn't in protection or inactive. may things still have to happen b4 this game is what I consider a good game. I'm only playing because the game has potential and is addictive. I have stopped playing several times just because the game got boring, pointless, and silly with w3c mucking everything up.
I don't think there is anything you could say that would change my mind on resets. I also don't think there is anything I could say that will change your minds, but the game is better off with resets because it keeps the game fresh.

Interesting. In WG, I made 100B every game month just over 1 rl month after being reset. Okay, I admit, I'm one of those sim-addicts. It isn't hard to do when the corporations are as old as mine are there (with 1500 salaries ).
*wonders if Wartime is Heavily Medicated for sim-addiction*
*further wonders if medication is needed for my condition*

Im all against resets and in response to one of Wartime Concubine reasons if a bad player fucked up his country then he can quite happily cancell registration abd reregiter a new one therefore not need a RESET!!!!! Fucked Idea!!!!!!!!! As far as for awards the accepting player takes a huge debt that can make playing impposble.
CEOS not affected by resets this is untrue. I have/had a very succesful enter that was making great profits 500 bill+ a month, 248 corps no debts and huge loans given to other players but to accept the reset would mean losing all cash(both available and loans given) and to be reduced to just 20 corps(which corps would be left don't know but be gauranteed they would be the least valuable).The benifits that were commented by Spassky would not be true as the number of CEOS corps would be significantly be reduced therefore having less in your country and less cash coming. Not worth playing if this happens every 4 months as you would never get above 30 corps before the next reset. The only way to avoid this is by buying gold credits but with the cash awards being so low its not worth it.Also these awards are not fairly worked out as I have found out by accepting a five dolar award(the equivelant of 1 gold credit)and having now to recieve a 120,000,000 debt.But to win a gold credit would cost me nothing for my enter. With this much debt not possible to ever repay so now can only accept reset or quit game.I have been playing this enter for some 10 months(and have enjoyed it but not anymore)and have managed to stay debt free for 5 months but within 2 weeks the W3c staff have destroyed my enter for the sake of five dollars. Does anyone know the penalty for accepting a first place award? and what are the penalties for a GR cash award should be fairly harsh as the cash is higher.I would play the GR if the cost and time taken to develop a succesful enter wasnt so high(took me 5 months to get a successful enter in this world).An advantage for all you winging presidents is the fact that you can transfer your country into GR but not us CEOS oh no we would have to start from scratch. The w3c staff seem determined to kill of any enjoyment in the game. In addition the sum of materials bought is not calculated but plucked out of thin air as tye majority of my corps that have large quantities of cash 50bill+ pay more and the more cash they pay even more. An example would be a vacation corp that bought air tran and high tech but spent 87 billion for this stock which was only valued at 40 billion and my total assets only amounted t 67 billion something is wrong.
Has anybody notied that the KB world is running at a faster monthly rate the the others, if the w3c staff want people to pay to avoid resets then all worlds should run on a 3 month day the awards for the so called free woulds should be higher and the penalties for the top players to accept these awards should be considerably less. The option to CEOs to transfer an enterprise to the GR should be there as it is for Presidents
