I still have seen no one put their hand up who has taken a C3 in the last 10 days, I have been watching the wars and must have missed Missouri's C3 war. Missouri can you advise me of the C3 war you had so I can go have a look at your battle and the countries involved? Looks as though a few people are about to try so will watch them with interest...

“How is a new player supposed to know about the hidden market value penalty? “
If worried about that, it’s not near the problem in GR. Simply build corps to supply your needs, contract it to your companies and uncheck automatic buying in the game settings. You will have to make up the difference between 100% production and what your current production is at some point.
“How are they supposed to know that a corporation going public isn't a good thing?
Linear thought patterns again, if you are in a position to control 100% of the stock should you desire then it’s a very important and effective tool for both a country, or a CEO.”
“How are they supposed to know that the common market is all but useless? “
You’re kidding right????
“Right now I can't figure out how to move a navy ship, and can't even see mine on my country map. The list goes on. “
Click on the war link from your home page, choose the organize fleet link, choose which fleet you want to move and either click on the map or use the drop down menu to have it meet up with another to exchange weapons.
“Like why do you have to wait 4 months to attack a computer-controlled country? “
Like a player controlled country it’s attempting to build a defense, granted it’s not going to be effective but it’s still trying none the less.

The defense of a computer controlled country doesnt matter as they have changed the war index and no one has taken a c3 recently without completley destroying it.
The common market - well im going to see if i can make it work
The navy ship problem, well more work needs doing especially with suitcase navy fighters that can fix 62,000 on a single carrier. Must be a pretty big carrier then.
The 4 month attack wait - c3 countries should automatically be fully defended and if the c3 crew really want to screw the game up - tighten the defensive parameters even more to drive more players away from the game
Blow up all the corps - well you could do a US run up the budget surplus and then use all youre state corps to help with the reconstruction effort. Make some money long term with exclusive contracts etc. I guess the game programmers want to keep as many c3 countries as they can so new players can jump in.
Well we humans will just have to start attacking each other where the game parameters dont apply in regard to the c3 country.
At least the demand for loans and offensive weapons will do a exponential thing.

Just one comment, you arent allowed to control 100% of a public company.
Regarding common market. Well its ok for supplying supplies that are hard to get and for maaging oil corps by keeping purchases small
but apart from that.well i havent found a good use

I have in the past, and on several of them now will be controlling 100% of the outstanding stock on my public corporations as soon as I get it back.
Your Country or CEO can't buy more than 50.999999%, your country's investment fund can't buy stock in corps built inside the country the fund is located in, it can however buy all the stock it wants in corps outside that country.
It will just never have a controlling interest no matter how much it owns. My investment fund on several of my corps has a higher percentage of stock than my CEO which controls it.
And it can own stock in a corp that it has bought stock in and is moved into your country. If you sell that stock however it won't be able to buy any back.
The investment fund in Missouri is well over 3T that money is going into my corps before it goes into anyone elses.
Common sense people

Sorry Almoth you are correct I forgot 1 share will be owned by someone else 99.99999% of the outstanding shares is all you can own with resources you control.
(slaps himself) I bow before you in shame.

Serendipity can you expand on who and where these successful C3 wars were. Everyone likes beating their chest how good they are but no one has given actual proof yet that they have taken a C3 recently. Re 100 wars since Sept 2nd I am dubious on that as I have been watching too. I don't mind if C3s are hard or even impossible to take, I do mind wasting trillions $ of ammo and weapons believing people who say it can be done when no one can give 1 example except for rhetoric.

"The defense of a computer controlled country doesnt matter as they have changed the war index and no one has taken a c3 recently without completley destroying it."
Hopefully they won't change the war rules soon, I should be expanding again by the end of this game month.
I'd do it now just to show you but, I don't allow others to do my thinking, or set objectives for me.
