Although this would repay me about the same as I've lost,
I disagree
How many players are level 10 that lost $30mil? Everyone will be in Ranches in no time. This game has a progressive incremental trend to it. Stats, you start by training 0.3 per train, and now people are over 100. It's the same with money. You start of stealing $2, and go up to $120k. So the higher levels lose more than $3mil per level, and lower levels lose far far less.
Not that I want those at the top to stay there, but being objective, they deserve more, and lower levels deserve less!
From my experience, $2mil per level will repay what I lost.

Aye, I don't think it's gonna work mate.

There are a few people who will get back what they lost, but for most people that lost big, it won't cover it all.

The biggest problem will be that some people will actually gain from it.

Doling out millions to everybody could send the TC economy into chaos, which is already going to happen with the flood of DPs and points thart will be available in the city soon.

For people like me, who had to sign up again, I would only be entitled to $3m. Hopefully I'll get my DPs back soon, but they aren't going to be worth the value that they were when I originally purchased them, hence I'm going to be in a worse position, and not be able to earn back everything that I lost in the same time.

Just a noobs 2 penneth worth anyway.
I will still keep playing as I love this game (plus I haven't lost anywhere near as much as some people)!!

Booya!

3m per level you are now of course. If we knew the level you lost, you would already have been recredited that level.


Exactly how would you recredit levels back to an account that was wiped ?

I have the screenshots to prove I was lvl 7 if you want them along with everything else I lost in the crash. If you credited them back to me then I wouldn't want or need any compensation.

I think the idea is good, but the money is to much for the lower levels. I think it would be more reasonable to give 1mil per level form lvl1-10, 2mil per level level 11-20 and 3 mil per level 21 and up.

3m per lvl +50 pts - sounds fair for me. I lost 1 lvl, DPs, points, tons of cars and I suffered without TC for those days Of course you won't please everybody but it's better than nothing. Good idea.

What use is that going to be?
I lost 9 levels, my stats, my exp, my ranch... everything!
3 million and 50 points doesnt get all that back.
If I get everything back to the way it was I will be happy with that.
A truer form of compensation would be to refund the cold hard cash that people spent on donating before the crash.

You just lost The Game.

Personally I think just leaving everything as it is now without compensation is sensible. If you credit people with 3m x level and 50 points some people will be gaining out of it and some people won't stop complaining that they lost 50 times more than that. If you leave it as is no one ought to complain as everyone lost something. Matter of luck how much you lost.

Edit: except real life cash (as la_senza says) and DPs.

From a personal point of view I would love the 3m per level but I can't imagine what a flood of money would do to the economy. You seem to have been pretty good at game balancing so far though, so I guess you have taken that into account.

On the other hand 50 points seems trivial, especially given that it has often been the normal reward several times a year for attacking an NPC.

Possibly merits would be a better reward system?

The best form of compensation would be donator days - not packs - the extra points floating about would affect things.

DP days would appear to be the only way you can compensate without screwing over the economy or artificially increasing the gap between the top players and the middle players, and the middle players and the bottom players.

It would also show that you're willing to take the consequences of the cock up where it hurts - in the pocket.

The only people negatively affected would be those who buy their way up the game with parent's credit cards.

I dunno......Is this compensation supposed to give me my palace back? I mean cause that would work.....but.....it sort of "levels" the playing field to a status it may have not been. Say some level 33 like me decided to stay in a mansion all this time and use his money towards drugs......while i had 65 mil "invested" in a house.......now he got away with drugs and gets the same house as me......I mean i like compensation but I still wish you could run a script to compare an older version of the database with the one in place to see that we did in fact have the house we had.......And giving everyone 50 points will absolutely crush the pnt market for a bit

I know the forums are filled with sad stories about people losing everything they had and all that, but do they really get compensation if everyone gets a huge sum of money?

Player A and player B were competing and A spends all his cash on xanax while B saves it all to beat A in the long run. Suddenly B loses all his cash, but A still has his stats. Both get 90mil as compensation, If you're player B, does this seem fair?

Giving out compensation will only harm the TC economy, not make up for the lost cash, dogs etc. Since there's no way to find out who lost what, I think there should be no compensation, all I want is that someone takes responsobility for all this.

There's no use in merits if everyone has them. They're supposed to be something that gives you an advantage because you've achieved something ingame.

Seems cool enough. Obviously there will be winners and losers as their would be in any across the board compensation but this seems at least fair.
