Well...I'm all for the stopping inflation, but like everyone else who has spent merits on bank interest, I would like mine refunded. I have other places I could use them if the bank interest reward is now obsolete.

would be ok if people that used merits get less of a drop and more of a raise depending on there merits used for it. if not then why not refund the merits ( i know that will never happen)

i agree. banking merits need to be able to be respent.
i also wonder why expensive non-tradeable items cant be sold from the game to players to get cash out of the system instead of screwing over younger, less wealthy players who go through the trouble and slow process of growing something out of nothing with the bank.

i was reluctant, but ok with stock market changes but i have just one censored word for this update.

This is just plain stupid.You are ruining the game with all these new changes.Quit screwing with a fun game before you start losing players.This is the 3rd bad change.First the points market,then the stock market and now bank interest rates.

I'm going to (like almost everyone else) have to learn to deal with the changes...... for better or worse..... I'm grateful it does affect current investments and I didn't spend any merits on bank interest (although I contemplated several times)........

i wanna know if we can get the merits spent on banking back so that we can choose if we want to put them back on banking or use them elsewhere.i thank thatd be fair.



I have spent 36 merits on banking with the new changes does that mean someone thats spent 0 merits gets the same intrest
if so I think I should get my merits back its only FAIR please reply to this post as a lot of people will want to know.

Base interest rate ( changes daily ) + merit (constant)...

As others have said, I have spent a ton of merits on interest increases... 28 to be exact. Please tell us how this will be compensated, Chedburn.

This is an EXTREMELY disappointing change, especially to someone that has been loyal to this game for over 3 years.

they can calculate how many merits were spent on banking in php and refund them easily. if they cant i wil be glad to do it or them so everyone doesnt take it up the rear like the last banking change. we were assured back then that we wouldnt be screwed on banking again back then. if you cant code a way to refund merits please contact me and i will code it for you free of charge without seeing code or database. you can just change the table and field names. unless you are intending on adding upgrades on interest to this change you are making.

Excellent,
another way to shaft the players that haven't got billions already
:| [/quote]

Wow are noobs really that stupid? Do they not understand if a player with less money invest say 100K get 50% interest you make 50K, While a player who has 100 million invest at 50% they make 50 MILLION.

But if they reduce interest to say 10% the 100K player gets a 10k back while the 100 Million guy gets 10 MILLION back

So see you freakin noons the lower the interest the lower the disparity. at 50% the rich player makes 49+million more then you and at 10% the rich player makes 9+million more then you.

People with more money make more money the higher the interest

Now you noobs say well I wanna make more so i can buy things, well if the rich keep getting richer then items become more expensive and you still stay priced out

All I am saying is before you complain just take a minute to actually figure out what the change does!

Now from someone who has a couple BILLION and upgraded bank interest this STUCKS! lol

Check out what Ched said here regarding possible changes in the bank interest rates:
http://www.torncity.com/forums.php?forumID=2&ID=5168958&start=30

Based on this it looks like merits will still increase the interest rates.

Not like people are overreacting without all the info though...

I don't think that's completely fair as u have gotten to use the merits on banking. It wasn't like u never benefited from them. I do somewhat feel there should be some sort of something to make up for it, but at the same time...

normaly when ched changes something, some people are benefited in a positive manor, and the others just get screwed. I've been screwed with most the past changes.

I don't like the interest rate changes and I think u're going about taking money out of the system wrong ched. Ur hurting the newer players, and only the richest just stay as rich.

Holy hell. kyle8048's outta fed.

bubba

after reading JUST cheds first post it says

(and i quote)

"It won't be any lower than it needs to be, and it can always be brought up when we have better times."

whos better times?? i thought this was a great tc time atm. more active people, lots of money being flown around everywhere.

or is it cheds better times?? when NO ONE can afford anything, all the cash is gone and people have started quitting.

Please return our merits!!!

I wont get angry about the many merits Ive already spent on interest merits yet. Will wait to see what this is all about.

But I have an 8/10 bank! That is a lot of merits spent on interest. Just dont messwith my 0.8% that is the results of merits spent and no problem.

I honestly fail to see how this will help stop inflation

If i have 500mil and get 25% for 3months for the day, and someone with 50bil+ gets that same interest rate, who is getting the better deal? They can invest 49bil of it and get 12bil back and i will get 125mil.

How does this help inflation?

If anything it is going to get more people scammed through, "I have 10/10 banking so i get better interest than you can possibly get"

If you are going to do this, return the merits people spent on banking interest and put a cap on it.
