I think its a great way of compensation, i lost 3k working stats, 6 levels, a ton of cash, crime exp and two dogs so i think the extra cash will at least be a good way to rebuild. I was seriously considering leaving this game for good, after all my work had gone to waste like that...
Hmm compensation i feel you dont need to bother...this particular event was not your fault. If it had involved you changing something purposely which screwed people over then compensation is needed. In this case i disagree strongly that compensation is required. Its just a game, we all had 3 days of freedom to leave our house and get some fresh air thats a nice reward anyway.
Imagine the added effects when a number of people choose to bank a chunk of it. A constant stream of extra cash into the economy on top of all of this that you're proposing. What was the point of changing the banking system if you're just going to screw everything up like this? The economy would never recover from such a massive amount of cash going into it.
Re. the point about the top players' lost cash making up for it - if the large amount of money is spread between a lot more people more of it gets spent, and impacts the economy. 50-100 very rich players wouldn't have had too great an impact - if they can afford their xanax and points for chaining they're happy, right? No need to spend it all at once when the max amount of xanax you can consume was 3-5 per day (less now the xanax times have changed).
Don't let your greed get in the way of the wider picture.
My thoughts are good on this for trying to make up for the losses BUT , when you think of the things lost and were added up its huge , considering I looked up my paypal account activity and seen 20 pages with torncity which lists 20 transactions per page and comes out to $1000.00 usd REAL money , then realise im screwed no matter what , the idea to compensate people . * shrugs * just my 2 cents
I really DON'T like the money OR points idea!! It will simply devaluate the money, so maybee we get more money, but what does it help when the money aint are worth the same anymore??
Me Idea what the staff should do:
The staff should give us some more fun! more weapons/items, more travel destinations, simply more game.. And if they really want us happy give us some great new opportunities.
I really thnink it's the best way of getting the gameplay back, giving us money or points or even thinks will just fuck up the gameplay.. In real life you allso don't just make more money it wan't help!
I dont think there is a person in TC who can truly say this isnt fair enough. Even if it doesnt get you 100% made up for those who were massively affected, it does go along way. That being said I think 3mil a level is way too much. Immagine...everyone who is a lvl 33 (and there are alot) will suddenly have 100mil to do what they please.
I think most of the numbers we have been hearing are greatly inflated in terms of losses (except for a few people who were gretly affected). I'd love the 100mil cause I lost 1200 pts, and about 10K dex...but still the cash would be way too much.
hell im a lvl 10 newbie, and should probably shut the hell up and take the compensation. but dont ya see whats gonna happen?? everyones gonna be filthy rich!! fucks the whole game up. i dont know maybe the compensation should be reduced for low level(includin me) and higher for higher lvls. before ya all think of cussin me, know that im the first to forsake the compensation
