i'm losing money, but im far into the black numbers.

and yes, even just cities would get me into the black numbers so i dont just have to cash in my oil etc.

and i seem to be losing it quite fast, cause i came back from an hour rest to find my on hand cash to be -20, i gathered 10 jewels, which got me to about -6, but after another 3 i was at -20 again???

ill start monitoring it now.

We're noticing problems as well! Checking the "financial overview" page doesnt give any suggestions - the total expenses it quotes for a day seem to be taken up within the hour. . . :shock:

Your troop costs are deducted from your on-hand geos. If all your geos are in the bank, then your on-hand geos will show as negative.

nothing in the bank, 0.0.

i just lost like 75 geo's in the last hour.

Total Income: 567.54
Total Expenses: 41.97
Total Daily Revenue*: 525.57

of which:

Boston, Massachusetts, USA: 41.76 Geos per day.
New York City, New York, USA: 156.72 Geos per day.
Toronto, Ontario, Canada: 56.16 Geos per day.
Washington, D.C., USA: 57.86 Geos per day.

which should go into my hand.

i can now either lose my cities and jewel like crazy to keep my armies.
or i can stay which should in theory slow the proces (but doesn't seem to) and die the slow way.

HELP

-50 is the minumum your money can get, but itll still destroy your troops.

Exactly!! It takes army expense in each 5 minutes but gives the city payment in a day!!

beezer, and ask if you could get simple capabilities like giving money, or maby stopping everything even.

If this keeps up nobody will be able to afford any cities.

I also have this -50 geos problem. Mickey, can you fix it? Or is it a punishment for collecting to much jewels at the beginning of the resetted game? ;)

Well so long as there isnt another reset. I spent quite a while jewel hunting today(although now i have no money) and wouldnt be interested in starting again. Hopefully the guys are able to sort this out soon(when they get a chance) and geos can be given back to those affected.

CianR

We need to get this sorted quickly - i just used ALL my resources and jewels just to get out of the negative - and i need to buy armies because im about to be attacked!

That would be really nice if they could give back goes to us. Right now I have to continously search for jewels just to be able to keep up with me failing bank account.

LOL same problem here. Where are the 2,000,000,000 troops at when u want em? :lol:

Mickey told me he thinks its a misplaced decimal point or he's got the daily cost being taken out every five minutes instead of the daily cost/288.

He should be correcting it shortly.

Thanks for the update Beezer, also thanks goes to Mickey for his hard work - it was probably the lack of sleep that was the cause of his error! :whoa:

Also, it doesn't appear to be deducting troops when you hit the -50 point. I was at -50 for a while and didn't take a hit. I've also notice some other people who have been at -50 for an hour or so and they haven't gone down either.

Not entirely sure if it's possible, but is there any chance that the lost geos can be replaced somehow? I guess it depends on how much info the server logs really...

thanks mickey,

We all lost stuff. Some lost more than others, but I don't care to deal with 160 people one at a time to refund their goods. Realize that everyone is down a bit and try to use that to your advantage.

i'm sorry mickey i just read ur post about no refunds, and i cant use it cause im one of the ones hardest hit (he, there's suddenly 500 armies headed for my cities...odd).

but he, these things happen, people have been asking for natural disasters, this is a software disaster :lol:
