    A big gratz to MA for surviving the financial crisis!
    The financial crisis is just getting started. Have you missed that whole Greek bailout thing that is happening? How about all the USA bailouts that have yet to be repaid and/or paid off? How about all the US banks still failing and being shut down? How about the projected $10trillion US deficite Obama is creating? The lack of decline in unemployment? The crisis is still very much in effect. The bailouts had a temporary positive boost but once the money that was spent on it runs out then what?

    One big virtual world already collapsed, another large one just laid off 1/3 of its staff and cutting costs to stay alive and now this one is selling assets to pay their bills for 2010.

    I wouldn't jump for joy just yet.

    Virtual worlds are failing for a reason. Not nearly as many people are interested in playing them as developers anticipated. many of the one's that are interested and have been playing them are bored to death of them and moving on.

    Unless the loss actually is because their expenses has gone up rather than that their income has gone down?


    I still think that the biggest problem (for player retention) is that loot is so unbalanced (need fewer ATHs and HoFs, less big-loss hunts, more stable returns)

    I would rather get 80% back 3 times in a row than getting 60% back once, 120% back next time, then 60% again... (as an example)
    the reason they cant retain oplayers or grow the playerbase at all is because the game is 10 times the price of every other mmo on the market to play and has 1/1000 the content. you run the gamer like a casino, then you get a few thousand gamblers, if they ran it more like a game they might get more of the millions of gamers.

    On a side note, for a little comparison, there where 46,000 separate accounts logged into that other virtual space game with the ships you can fly this last Saturday when I was logged in there and the game ran great, graphics are awesome, the CEO says hi on the forums, lots of cool stuff to do, incredible amount of support and documentation, costs 140 ped FOR A WHOLE MONTH, etc...

    If you read all the "spam" you wouldn't have to ask. Now go do some homework and get back to me with your questions later when you have a clue

    I have read it. If i disliked this place as much as you I would of moved on to something else by now.

    Anyways back on topic (i don't think i ever was sorry).

    Anual report is interesting. Some bad news a few bits of good news (planets?). I just wonder who is buying fpc. Guess we will know by aug 15th.

    MA's model of adding Real Estate to the game and then selling them to some debt ridden player having only his house to put as security for another debt for buying a virtual property and hoping to make money of it is not working nicely with there loyal depositing players quieting and no income from decay.

    And what more they have published the report in Swedish instead of English so that majority of players don't understand the report.

    So MA's financial report leads us to believe that FPC is selling the rights to Planet Calypso to a group of international companies for somewhere around 6,000,000 USD? In return, FPC will get 50% of future profits?

    It sounds like FPC is hurting for cash. So they're selling off the rights to Calypso in exchange for money for development and marketing. They will continue to run FPC and only get 50% of profits.

    This means there will be outside investors influencing gameplay decisions based on not whether gameplay is improved but rather if its profitable.

    This report doesnt mean jack shit.

    Why? Because its MA + FPC = EU
    So we have FPC which is unknown here.

    And that report is there to fool the taxman See how good accounting leads to less taxes. All you have to do is make another company and work some transactions to it

    Regards

    I.
    Cheers everyone

    Enjoy VU10
