I just wondered what everything thought based on the current game of who was the KING when it comes to influence and power.
All the novels I've ever read had various companies competing against each other, and that may very well go on here, but I just haven't seen it being a relative nobody.
But who's trying to knock who off the top of the hill? How does the average player change that? Do the actions of corpies actually affect their organization, or are they so low on the totem pole that they can't cause a megacorp any real sustainable damage.
Reason I brought this up is actually not having to do with corporations at all really, just got me thinking in that vein.
Without going too far IC, but an establishment made a comment a few nights ago about needing customers or they would close the door. Does this type of shit ever happen? Will businesses fail or is the VNPC population always going to support them enough to keep the lights on so to speak.
I have no power icly or otherwise to influence this stuff, but was curious if PC's, being the stand out type players we are in the world, the unique individuals in a mass of flesh, have the ability to affect world changing things in this manner. So one bartender slanders another bar, makes up shit about the bar and eventually lowers it's popularity, can it ever hit that level where they call it quits and the others win?
These are just things I think of while I idle in the game when it's not busy. Thoughts?
