[-] Airline mergers, purchase
« on: October 04, 2019, 02:32:12 AM »
Wondering if a feature would allow one airline to merge in another..... If player needs to stop playing or is in financial trouble, etc...
Or be able to purchase another airline??

I recall some discussions on this matter, and Sami was not fully opposed to it on the principle (details to define, though). However I believe it's far from being on the top of the list for future feature. There are both gameplay issues / bugs to be solved first, as well as other features.

Real problem with it is that it's unbalancing the game even more in favor of big boys.

Look at "History and the Future". Out the 500 companies that started in 1955, barely 50/60 are still alive in 1983. Far less would still be if hostile takeovers were possible. It would be more realistic(market consolidation is a real life thing), but only a handful of players would enjoy it(as me in modern times, where I belong to the TOP5, and could realistically eat all my opponents for breakfast on an open share market).

even worse, if we had a fully open share market, the best way to succeed would be, on day one, to invest everything on the best player's company, instead of your own. Some schro, some elladan, some frimp.....
