"Great game, highley recommanded"
great interface, Good game to learn about how the stock market works. Very much addictive game.
One can easily take decision for a company, if he holds 20% shares of that company. This feature tends to have given player a power to earn as much as he wants. The simple Cheat is to control a smaller company's 20%, this company can then control 20% of another bigger company and so on. Short every company in the chain except the company which you hold. Then sell all the business of the last company and give all the money it has as dividend. THat company will go bankrupt and also whole chain will go bankrupt. Since user has only 20% holding in the top of the chain, the loss might be around 200-500Mn, but the profit one can take due to this is very high. I managed to earn 1200Billion$ in just 2 year demo.
Another technic is to bankrupt or downsize a BIG name company like MSHT. after that you can purchase all shares of this company at around 300-500mn, and then contribute around 20Billion to this company. See the Share value to skyrocket to around 100Billion. Then sell the shares to some company, whose 20% shares you own. And again force MSHT to give away all 20Bn in dividend, the market cap will again drop to belo 1Bn.. again buy it... Follow this loop to earn 100Bn everytime...
In reality, you can not short your parent company by Federal LAW. It would be like insider information... :)
