TMI Shares for sale: 0

I guess Ched will be sending this stock down.

There are also other changes to come, bank interest will be changed shortly to give us more control over the economy, company taxes may also be introduced.

Werent we assured that we wouldnt be screwed over again by our interest rates being messed with or the merits that we spent on them? Merits are very expensive these days, example: my last bank upgrade was 7 merits valued at 175 million dollars in merits, 6 merits on the upgrade before that valued at 150 million, etc. I think changing interest rates or messing with merits will result in alot of unhappy players and alot of players expecting to be comped the money that the merits they used are worth at todays points value. Ive been around a long ass time, and know what kind of crap this kind of action will cause. Taxing companys is something that is something people wont like but it is doable if done right.

I better not want my merits back.

Because you only got epicly ridiculous, game breaking interest for 1,000 days + off them?


you are an idiot. you have always been an idiot and you will most likely continue to be an idiot.

game breaking interest my ASS. the stock market caused this problem. bank interest is NOTHING.

people who have played by the rules and worked hard get screwed again.

i never manipulated the stockmarket.

i have earned my money the hard way. now you are going to take away my bank? that's bull. i've played for almost 4 years and every time i think i might be starting to get ahead you screw me over again

Lol, and thats how you go from thousands of happy customers to bunch of pissed of people in 1 day.

Hm, 6.5 hours in the stock and I've lost 6.5% and can't sell it... Can we have something added in where we can sell back to TC if we're under and we'll have to pay a penalty (1% or .5%) so we can at least get out from under the stock?

This new stock market is the WORST thing that ever happened. Can't even sell like the real stock market. In real life, when your stocks go up, you can sell them. I'll NEVER play this stock market EVER again!!! I'll Take the huge LOSS. Take it as a lesson learned.

Briliant, make stocks look like they will go up, people will buy them, then make them fall hard so nobody buys therefor you can't sell and you are stuck in a dropping stock.

Waste of 100 mil. Thanks, Torn city raceway um i mean stockmarket.

Stockmarket is great - if you've got virtually no money. Tried it out yesterday with a relatively large buy - and within one tick the penny dropped and I put the whole lot up for sale - about 50 events later I managed to get out with a profit - never again!. Has Ched heard of playtesting - and I don't mean on the players for once

oh - and there obviously has to be parity with the banking system - or no one would bother with stocks - in RL or ingame. Mind you - looks like Ched could be sorting that out too

So there is a possibility that i will never be able to sell this stock? I put stocks up for sale hours ago. and they are only worth a few mil. What if i want to sell my larger investment....is it gonna take weeks.

Ched! You have to realize that this may be the worst update in a long time (cant say ever as i have not played the whole time) I will not think less of you if we switch back to the old way.

And that update with the lowered interest....That's plain dirty Chedburn

When I first saw the new update I was excited about it.I really thought it would be fun to be able to buy stocks and sell them between players.But now we have growing stocks we cant sell unless they drop.And the point in that for us is???

Would be nice if we could sell "In real time" Not hours later. or get riped off when we try to..

Or at least a guide on how this works..Took me all night just about to figure it out just to be disapointed!

Nice let down!

This is horrible! The dang stock at BAG that I invested in has dropped 12.5% in 24 hours! I have never seen such a down-slide. I seriously think they coded something wrong when they did the new update because it is just going down non-stop. I am sure that I will lose pretty much all my money before it is over with.

20 mil invested and in 24 hours I have lost 2.4 mil!!!!

A stock market where you can only sell if the stock is rising and the overall market is coded to fall, unique economics, absolutely unique!!!
