I don't know all the systems/methods the monster ports use, but I know trading millions of shares a day is not about accurate projections

Posted by: PhoneHome on Aug 06, 18:21 in response to Neilthor's post risk/reward thoughts

Although they may be good at selecting winners also, the current setup makes the game more about working systems related to the computer, automated adjustments, programming prowess, driving a stock up and down, database updates, or whatever, instead of how the game is described. I play anyway, and it's not that big a deal but admit that I was disappointed once discovering that the big money is made in a different manner than being good at predicting boxoffice success.

risk/reward thoughts Neilthor Aug 06, 11:55

I agree, I would go even further and halt everything from Wednesday which is when the first estimates appear {nm} latafilms Aug 06, 12:16

Are you saying the game is too easy? {nm} JonHH Aug 06, 12:52

yes, when you already see the estimates, its just not fun to bet knowing the aprox numbers. Better halt tuesday or wednesday morning. latafilms Aug 06, 17:25

Something high risk would be fun. Also, separate suggestion: ipos cost a % of net worth,10%?, then everyone could afford max islander Aug 06, 12:53

On that separate suggestion: Personally, I'd just stop playing as I wouldn't bother buying IPOs altogether. {nm} -JPV- Aug 06, 13:07

In all seriousness, maybe I'm misreading islander's suggestion there. 10% of one's net worth for an IPO? -JPV- Aug 06, 15:19

Just a harmless suggestion. {nm} islander Aug 06, 15:22

Just stood out as an insane amount, lol. But like I said, halt and adjust? Ok w/ that, just don't hold your breath it will ever return. {nm} -JPV- Aug 06, 15:25

3.125%? {nm} islander Aug 06, 15:34

You said 10%. Again, maybe I misread it... {nm} -JPV- Aug 06, 15:41

*10% of net worth. {nm} -JPV- Aug 06, 15:42

I think that's supposed to be a joke on the old 312.50 price {nm} JDolphin Aug 06, 16:24

Ok. *shrug* {nm} -JPV- Aug 06, 16:47

I'm for anything that rewards more for investing in the correct movie rather than who can adjust to actual results the quickest. {nm} PhoneHome Aug 06, 18:05

I love the game and I don't do any of the things you just listed in your last comment. bennyg1985 Aug 07, 07:39

Not everyone with a large port plays like that. {nm} DTravel Aug 07, 09:41
