Pet energy cost decrease (0 Energy cost to play)

What should we do with our job points? Will there be something to spend them on?For now, there are a lot of companies who don't need them.

Not true I don't think. I've got 17 job points, not sure how to spend them so I'm assuming it's automatic. Well I've yet to win a drag race with my GT40 upgraded to what it can get against other 0 win racers.

Worst plan ever.

First you make companies crap, then you try to make them better 2 weeks later when over 50% of the directors gaver up and either deleted their company and sold it for very very cheap prices. So you now screwed over those people and completely made them mad.

Congratulations Ched you have outdid yourself.

To be honest, I don't see the point of the Companies update as of this time. I'm sitting pretty in Medical, getting a Morphine a day and when I have enough, I sell them for 6-8 times what their "official" sale price is in the Item Market. So keep on with the Corporation idea. Let more people go to work for them than Med so that the price of Medical supplies just keeps increasing exponentially as a lower percentage of users are able to get them easily though employment benefits.

So far, I see the only real benefit in the ability to create experience and faster viruses. So, until I see real progress done that matches up to my current Job, I'm just doing my thing.

But, please. By all means go and have your fun with the Corporations. When you get attacked, I'll be ready, selling my Morphines.

You're quite right Katia, things were a lot tougher back then, and anything worth having is worth earning. But people are generally unhappy that the new companies are almost completely pointless and that they've wasted time and money on them. Company owners could make more money just by putting their cash in the bank, and company employees could have more benefits in one of the original jobs. People just get disappointed when things fail to live up to expectations (such as the promise of a 'lag free TC'). This is not a criticism of the game, more a suggestion that people shouldn't expect too much.

The updates seem badly thought out and not very well implimented.

Shame, really. A lot of work for rather little good.

TC keeps JACKING me!
I already lost my castle, and over 200M with the rollback and data lost, so I took my remaining funds and invested in a 70M software corp. My software company is sucking my money leaving me high and dry. I have been paying 7M per week on advertising, only to get between 100,000 - 200,000 per day return, but even that is not my share, after I pay my employees I get about 50k per day, which sucks because advertising alone costs me 1M per day!

Then today we finally got a SPECIAL, wow how special is that now that I can unlock a virus code 10% faster than I could before, but it dosn't matter because all my virus codes are already unlocked, and hacking a computer doesnt pay nearly as much as steeling a car, which I usually do anyhow!

I'm very upset that TC keeps jacking me, I've worked too hard to earn my money, and they keep digging me further and further in the hole on stupid stuff. I believe the developers put NO THOUGHT in to the company specials.

Our specials are WORTHLESS

it does look like the specials were thrown together. after 25 days I can swap my job points for $25000. great.

I don't get any improvement in my working stats, i'm losing cash daily and all I get as a special is $1k a day.


Why doesn't the director get a chance to earn working stats?

I think I might be packing in my company and go back to my medical job where I could improved working stats and steal moph.

Ched: Your last post about companies and this new "update" on specials do not agree.

Topic: Addition: Companies
-34 New and unique jobs
-Each company completely customisable and run by one player
-Company popularity and income affected by other companys of that type
-2+ unique and secret specials for every job i.e. Lawfirm makes busting easier depending on company rating.




There are a total of 15 specials split across the companies, some are more interesting than others and everyone will have different opinions of all of them.

I have different opinion !
I think specials with nerve and energy are very nice. Especially when rating will increase.
Other specials sucks very much, but it's not my company problem

I don't see any companies with rating 2 ?
Where is our new rating !!!

I don't like how 99% of companies can't even make enough money to pay off their employees...

--edit--

a solution may be to add more customers to the market! I understand that companies with less companies get more customers, but there are sooo few to begin with! why not increase the number of customers by like...3-6 times... so more companies can at least break even...

Heh... My employeers are my friends so they are working for 1-2k but advertising is crazy.

1,4 mln for cheapest, worst campaign with income 30-60k daily

I hate all this bitching about bad specials, bad income.
I just want to know what about rating increase ? Ched told that some companies will increase it today or yesterday. At the moment only his company has higher rating.

yeah, i pay 1 mil a week for CHEAP advertising at my strip club, and i'm barely breaking 10 grand a day, and thats before i even pay my five employees...say nothing about actually paying myself something. and if i raise prices to try to make up some of the difference, i lose customers and my popularity goes from 3% to 2%. something needs to be done soon, this is just stupid. and the 1K a day that i get by trading in my job points doesnt cut it bubba.

Think maybe its time to get some new blood in the staff, the last few updates just dont seem all that great and maybe its just because u are running out of ideas. but the companies appear to me that they were rushed into service after the crash, and there was obviously very little thought put into our so called job specials..

They can take back our Special for all I care.
Now we can unlock our computer virus codes 10% faster. HUH, like I want to go back and hack computers for pennies what I'm making now stealing cars?

They should have given our special to lower company levels, and give the better (expensive companies) better specials.

Currenly, unlocking virus codes is completely worthless to me and my employees.
