6 hours, I think its to long time

i strongly agree with that, perhaps half that time would be perfect



No! Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try.

does the amount of stocks we buy affect the time taken to get the benefits? (not the 1 shot get benefits but the 20-60days)

I think it is great for the rich. It will make them poorer. When ever I try to put money into the stocks and let it sit the company went broke and I lost my money.
Other then that it does suck. Ched ask some of us poor lower lvl players what we would like to see in the game. Dont just ask your high lvl staff what they want

interesting update ched, well done. not sure i can afford that much cash but very cool non the less.

not sure what people dont get regarding he 1% tax on sales of share that have only been invested in for 6 hours... doesnt mean you have to sit there for six hours. lol, if you make a quick profit of say 10% then you loose 1% because of the quick sale. doesnt mean you have to sit in front of the PC fro 6 hours waiting to sell. pmsl

Yay I can earn the benefits!

But not really, I'm not that rich. And if I was I wouldn't want to risk it on the stockmarket.

A big thanks to which ever arsehole came up with that update because you have now screwed up a good way to make money, in fact he last 3 updates have just been about screwing us out of money,so the people that are already rich are ok the newbies are screwed
I hope whilst introducing the 1% penalty you have also re-wriiten the stock market script to make sure that we can actually make 1% in 6 hours,if not why not?
In fact the last 3 updates seem to be intent on upsetting people
1....dogtags comp....a load of bollocks...designed to help people mug people because there aren't enough waring factions
2....ammo resell half price
3....stock market 1% penalty

and none of these were actually worth an announcement BEFORE they came into effect

good update if you have the cash. some people don't have that much to invest so it's no good to them. how's about an update for the poorer of us who use the stockmarket:)

If you had played the stockmarket yourself you would know that its hard to make at least 5% within 12-14 hours let alone 10% in 6 hours.

@Boomer, meh i have played it dude, and in real life too!. believe me buying and selling shares is expensive. adding a 1% tax to encourage people to invest for longer than 6 hours is a good thing. might even help with some stability in the market. mine was a theoretical example not to be taken as a real scenario.

but if you cant make such money within such a short period of 6 to 12-24 hours then what's the problem with a 1% tax on early sales under 6 hours? from what you are saying you dont get a worth while return anyway so whats the problem? wait till you have got a good return then sell without the tax. QED! simple!

happy investing!

We have also added a 1% charge to all funds, if withdrawn before 6 hours have passed. This is to stop people āabusingā the stocks by jumping from one to the other every 15 minutes.


Ched,this is how people play the stock markets in real life mate

To think I laughed at all the ridiculous conspiracy theories surrounding the departure of Tea. Talk about throw fuel on the fire. It now looks like a case of sour grapes and that Ched doesn't like the idea of people doing well for themselves in Torn City. Don't get me wrong I'm not siding with the conspiracy crew I still believe what iSo said on the whole thing but this coming so soon after someone who had found a way to get wealthy on the stocks gets kicked, surely I'm not the only one who thinks that looks odd.

Next, people were doing just fine making money on the stock market so why does it need changing, unless people were doing too well, which reinforces my belief that we aren't supposed to get it that easy.

Since I've started playing TC (admittedly not that long), every single stock on the market has gone down. If I had put money on anyone of them and left it I would have lost. On every one of them!
Now the system is changed overnight and I'm supposed to have faith that I can put my money into a stock and watch it grow.

The whole point of a stockmarket is being able to buy when prices are on their way up and sell when they are on their way down. Now if you spot such a trend, you are to be fined 1% for taking your money out of stock if the six hour period isn't up or just carry on losing money on a failing stock. Awesome idea Ched!

Don't be fooled people, the stockmarket has now been changed from somewhere that, if you've got a bit about you and can work out the system, you can make some money, to an extension of the casino.

Go play blackjack, you're probably better off.

Some of the benefits are an absolute joke.

25m investment to get free ads in the personal section of the newspaper that only costs 10k to post one anyway

5 billion investment needed just to get 50% less travel time


is it not like 250k now ?
