It's starting to sound like we're being ordered what to do with our stocks, not politely requested to join the experiment. With all due respect, people have the right to do whatever they please with their own stocks, it's not really anybody else's business
We're requesting that people participate in the sell-off tonight. We aren't forcing anyone. We've even given advice on what to do if you want to help out by selling your shares, but you want to keep them at the same time. Check my signature for details.
Just PLEASE don't reinvest in Pisswasser if it starts going down. I know it'll be a good investment, but we need data from this to determine if there's a flaw in the system. Then we can complain to Rockstar about it and hopefully get it fixed. We want this game to be balanced for everyone, so any exploits need to be sorted as a priority.
The reason we're being so pushy with this is that if this experiment gets messed up for ANY reason, we'll never be able to try this again. GTA Online will be released tomorrow and there'll be way too many variables to consider to even try doing this again.
And you change the reason behind the project every few hours or what? First it was about understanding how the market works, now you want to find possible flaws and report them to R*? Stop being so naive, they've probably extensively tested the stock market otherwise they would've never included it in the game. There probably wont be any fixing/patching for the stock market because it's meant to play out the way it does. Believing you're doing gods work / helping R* out by trying to find a possible "flaw" is just delusional. You do realize they have paid QA teams that test the game with all of its features throughout the years, and the GTA Online beta testing has been going on for a while now too.
This should only be about figuring out how the stock market works, not trying to be the white knights reporting flaws to Rockstar (there probably are none since I'm almost certain that the SP part of the game does not have an impact on the market).
Rockstar aren't gods. They're only human beings. Sometimes even the most obvious of things can be missed. I've spotted press releases from companies that have spelling mistakes in them. Sure, it might be small things, but it just goes to show that nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes. Please don't assume that Rockstar are exempt from this.
I've actually never changed the purpose of this experiment. Please take a look at the OP - 2405 has quoted my post from page 65 or thereabouts, which in itself used the exact words that I made from a previous post that I'd made from around page 40. It was ALWAYS intended that we'd report any flaws to Rockstar. The results of this experiment (IF they go in favour of our theory) would prove that they missed a step.
Might I add that if we do discover a flaw and we report it, we're only helping them. Bringing it to their attention will only result in the exploit/loophole/whatever you want to call it being fixed if they do decide to take any action.
