Huge Tax from galactic emperor

4y
#1
I just loaded up my main united earth colony, and the evil galactic emperor took away almost all my money. I play in the web browser, so it gets live updates before anything else. I'm not sure what purpose the Dev has for taxing our cash away, but im assuming there is one. I'm hoping this happens to all the colonies and not just me :)

This is not the first time this has happened. It's one way to level the playing field. When people have unpronounceable amounts of money it can make it very difficult for new players with small sums to be able to obtain materials through the GBT and to grow their colonies.

Isn't there a cap on how much you can send per transaction?

Oh wait, I think I misunderstood the situation.

Are you saying that when the colony's money reaches a certain level the emperor skims off it?

There are a couple of cash exploit fixes in the new version coming out soon, so to even things out colonies with huge amounts of money get a one-time galactic tax. You are still left with a ton of money so its really not a big deal.

It's a way of restoring some balance to the online world without having to disable all current online colonies and restart from scratch.

The main issue is that money in such high quantities really has no useful purpose in the game, but it does make it impossible for your colony to upload its stats to the server right now, so it's actually not a good thing to have ungodly amounts of cash, since going 4 months with no stat updates will have the server automatically switch your colony into offline mode.

You also need to keep in mind that the death star isn't going to just build itself. It takes $$$$

I'm not too bothered.

Crystals are just selling well right now so im selling them in 5k lots since thats what needed for the earth human research

Well I just got hit with my Galactic Tax and got referred to this page. I'm always OK with updates and re-balancing. I was just starting to make money by selling goods at reasonable prices. BIG FLYING ROCK always has fair prices. We are your goto market ;-) (yep selling my planetary soul for profits).
