Could anybody imagine Bill Gates excepting a $120,000,000 penalty just to win a award dah dont thinh so? The system is in need of correcting.This was the penalty inflicted upon me to win five dollars(or one gold credit) when to get free gold credits cost nothing. As this is exccesive I now have a useless enterp that will never make money. The loans are at an interest rate of 12%(criminal) and the loan allotments are in $810billion lots meaning it is immposible to repay with out generating $1200billion!!! a month in profit payments.To penalise top players so harshly just because they are successful is not on as they all started from scratch and had to work hard to get were they are. I have a couple of suggestions firstly for the awards and also for resets( am specifically regarding CEOs).
Here we go. Award system should be thus to accept cash payment one should be willing to do the following:
First Place lose 60 corporations
Second Place lose 40 corporations
Third Place lose 20 corporations
These corporations(the best ones that the enterprise has) should be distrubuted randomly to the lower ranked players therefore giving them some form of incentive to keep going. Another way would to lower the awrds bonuses payments that players are penalised to a more acceptable such as:
As for the lower ranked players persistance is the only way to succed thats the way that I did it. For months when I first started I believed that there would be no way that I could get this far for years but persistance payed of and in only 6 months was at the level that I am.
Now to resets.By charging you one gold credit to keep your enterprise they are not losing much from giving out credits to the top 40 players as you can only win a credit every three months and it takes about 2 weeks to recive this thus they are only out of pocket for about 2 weeks for you using a gold credit to keep enterp going for 4 months. But they insist that is supposed to be a fair way of making everybody competitive but this just makes ppl like me lose interset in the game if this happens. An example would be me I had a successful entrp with 249 corp no loans and plenty of loans given to others, and if I accept reset I would be reduced to 20 corps(which ones would be left who knows?).Would Bill Gates accept a reset of his enterp just to make it so called more fair DAH!! NO!!!. This then makes the game repetitive by the fact that you would build back up to 30 corps just to lose them again. Repetivness leads to boredom. I would be more content to accept the penalties that I have listed above as being more fair and pay a Gold credit every month to keep my enterp( thus making more interesting to build back up again)then to have stupid penalties impossed. The awards should also be increased slightly.
Last point for today why can't CEOS have the ability to transfer there enterp to the GR as I would have(not now that they have killed my enterp) been more willing to play for bigger awards.If presidents can transfer there countries why can't CEOS?
A VERY INTERESTING PROBLEM If hypothetically I have 3 corps in one country and the President decides to transfer to the GR what happens to my corps? Do they just close? as you can't play two worlds at once, so what would happen if all the presidents of the countries in which my 249 corps are located decided to transfer to GR would I lose the lot because as a CEO you cant transfer your'e enterp to GR would my current debts remain at there current level?
Something interesting for all to ponder.
From a once happy CEO

I won first place with my country, the penelty was 42T. but if you don't accept the award you don't get the penelty.
