The Company Game.

The idea was generated after some nostalgia for the 'company game' of ol' by a handful of peeps. The plan to create this public listing of companies is for it to be completely member-driven and not turn this into my second full-time job. It incentivizes those who put effort and are proactive, like many who enjoyed the ol' company game were. As any project, this is going to be modified as it is utilized fixing broken stuff and possibly 'DLC-ing' new stuff like new modifiers or whatnot.

The baseline/starting prices of your companies are based on another formula:

Back to the full-time job point - every company owner who volunteers to 'play' this game is expected to provide by the end of each month the following:

Mr Black Mr Black - they count. Have you got a marketplace thread?
Fire For Effect does here but it is one area I have yet to update the links and images on since the board move. Your work here will motivate me to sort all that out and add a second for Apex as I put more work into it. Zef Halo Zef Halo

This is y'alls baseline stock prices. It is just a starting point, do no take it as 'wHy iS mY cOmPaNy sToCk pRiCe lOw'. What 'matters', is your progression monthly afterwards.

I will start a new thread in a month's time where the whole 'game' begins where my updates will go.

All I need from y'all every month, to submit to me this completed by you. You will have a week after the end of the month to compile this, which is something that takes not more than 10 minutes to do:

Alright, you corporate monkeys - time to claim what you've earned. I need this filled by APRIL 5 with all the data you've got for the period of 1 MARCH to 31 MARCH.

*Link me your factory and codex subs (cap is 10 each as you can see in the table below).
**Link me your contracts (if any) too.
