Banks

Post by renegadze » Tue Feb 16, 2010 10:52 am

Next wave, remove the bigger banks people have.

I fully expect people will flame this with "but we've played for ages thats why we have them" attitude

but it gives a massive advantage to those players, none more so then the fact instead of buying UP they can simply bank, wait for people with smaller banks to bring the UP price right down then bulk buy loads of levels at a cheaper price

not to mention the ability to be able to save for spy levels

you are not the first to suggest this and you will not be the last. It will never happen. The reason being that people with big banks have donated large sums of money to the server. Also, there are other ways to save up for UP without having a large bank. Don't complain, adapt.

I couldn't care less how much money people have spent, that's their problem. If people have to buy numerous USS's per wave to stay in front then I will happily finish off the first page :-D

If admin won't reduce what the older playes get he could counter balance things by

A) increasing banks for newer people to something sensible.
B) remove the extra bonus for the older players, until the newer players have the option to buy USS if they so choose (days 7?)

Having Supporter Status in this era of Quantum gives you the ability to take one Supporter bonus per week.
Market Supporter gives this (and only this) as well, but must be bought with ingame goods, and only lasts the era.
The market is not yet setup. It takes about a week for a market to establish prices, and build inventory, within a new quantum reality...
You do have supporter status, which allows a weekly supporter bonus - provided by the market. As such, you will need wait for the market to open to use them...
Market expected to open in 200 turns.

If you took away the large banks then multi's would be that much more of a problem.

As someone has already said, put forth a little effort. Loyalty is rewarded in Quantum. :smt047

Would be nice if large banks began the same day market opened...not saying remove your banks...just remove them for the first week. As stated there are HUGE advantages to having one of the larger banks. I know it can be overcome and there are ways to adapt but it is very understandable that people propose this every 2-3 waves...also banks for non-SS people could use a little boost...they are pitiful.

There are advantages to donating. There are big advantages to donating. Thats why people donate. Take that away and people will stop donating. If no-one donates, the server costs are not met. This becomes a non-profit game, and ceases to exist.

option A won't work cuz then the big-bankers will complain

option B is out of the picture once you play a few eras, or just use a couple MTs into bank upgrades in your first era

of course
there are plenty of ways to overcome this
