The Economy

Post by venom on Sun Aug 23, 2009 12:17 am

You guys might not notice but a few have hundreds of millions in their bank/instead in the houses within 5 DAYS!!!! Tomorrow somebody "wink" will have a private island and i am just wondering how bad the economy will be within a month. It is too easy to make money and put it towards the house and stats. There needs to be more added to this game maybe even a new skill. Anything should be added as it increases the depth of the game, makes it more interesting, and is a way to spend money. For example we need to bring racing and by that i mean we need to have a competition weekly for points. This is so that people will have more things to do while they are playing FF and put money into their cars so that they can win first.

Agreed, there should be a few more places where we can spend money. Horse racing? This is the only game where there is a 100% return on house investment. Most will give you a % of the resale - or none at all. That would change the game economy quickly. But to do that - the current pricing would have to be tweaked to make the house upgrades a little more obtainable.

no money at all is out of the question, maybe 80%. but i believe we just need to add things into the game. I guess horse racing is a good add-on. We would need to upgrade the barn(house for the horses lol), buy them food, and train them. haha idk i am going insane -.- And then hold weekly competitions.

i disagree with the racing thing. i know that reefer put a limit and made it so you can only tune your cars 3 times a day. but for most people, thats alot of money that their spending, as in all of their money. others *looks at a few people* would have no problem sparing a few million to up their cars as high as they wanted. not to mention buying the best car and stating it up like crazy

^that's the whole point. not 1 person will upgrade their car like crazy, but several. But there can only be 1 winner. Therefore, one person wins the points while the rest spend cash on their cars, but do not get anything in return.

but venom, that would only be giving the richest players more points. it in no way gives lower levels and poorer players a chance to win, let alone compete

Hobbit, I've already been working on Towns and spreading out the Weapon/Armor shops to much higher level cities.

There will be new things introduced to the game that will let you spend your money elsewhere. Weapon upgrades, New Weapons/Armor, Advanced training, these are some of the thing's I have already been working on.

The main problem with the economy is that SOME people started off with 20-50K points so were able to power level like crazy, they now dominate the game completely and it will be impossible to ever reach them, or contend with them. Meaning that they will always have more money, the better equipment etc etc etc.
The problems with that for the economy, is that it makes things fully one sided, and means that people have millions, tens of millions, or possibly hundreds of millions, more than they were meant to after so few days.

I'm not entirely sure what we can do to fix the economy issues, as whatever is implimented, the higher players, will immediatly grab it, build it, upgrade to it, or whatever and become even more Overpowered, or sell it for a price so high, only they can afford it.

Yes, I'm a newbie that joined 2 days before the reset, but that doesn't make my points any less valid.

i was provided with 3k points in the beginning yet i am the highest level lol. your statement is true and that is how it is irl. When a new car comes out... the lower class would not buy it, the middle class would have to spend a lot of their money to buy it, but the wealthy society can spend their money to buy several. It is very hard for the low levels to catch up to top 10 unless they donate a lot.

That is why i suggest having the new mystic armor suggestion be bought in a high level city, yet it would be very cheap and weak from the start. With upgrades throughout lets say 3 months, it would be as strong as the rocket launcher. Activity is also a factor to the economy. Many of the high levels wouldn't be at the top if they hadn't spent hours playing FF.

I spent a good portion of everyday, playing this game, but am dealing with a lot of online attacks from various parties, thankfully most have stopped, however, lower lvl players, no matter how long they play will never be able to afford anything, if they can't play the game.

Yes, you got 3K free points, which enabled you to hit the top, meaning that you will be able to buy all the best gear, make the most money etc etc etc.

No matter how long I play, and how many hours I put in, I'll never be able to be near the top tho, the same is true for most players, the old top, have been majorly overpowered and so can afford the best gear as I said, and also the best houses, meaning max will, for crimes, so they gain more money that way, and also XP. But also, training.

As you say... Thats the way it is, and sadly, thats the way it's gonna stay lol.
I don;t see how the economy will be improved, but I hope it does.
(more for me to mug Very Happy )
