Now that the transfer market has totally destroyed most teams finances, thanks in large to transfer compare.

What steps are HT taking to inject a bit of life into it again or are you happy with where it is at this stage ?


I don't think for a minute that transfer compare is behind the falling prices on the transfer market. If it has an impact, it's a very, very small one. What it does is that it evens out the price level, which means you'll not get that much more than normal for a player - but on the other hand you'll not get that much less either. Without TC we should see a lot more fluctuation in the price level, meaning you might get a lot more than normal...but also risk getting a lot less than normal.

That said, of course transfer compare is far from perfect. There are skill combinations which it doesn't pay attention to, so one can of course discuss its merits even though I think it mostly works as intended ("a guide" for newer users). Nevertheless, one can't really blame the falling prices on transfer compare. The biggest factor behind the falling prices is the player supply being too big at the moment, which mostly depends on that the user growth rate percentage-wise has slowed down (so there are fewer new clubs to sell your trainees to) and that the players careers have been a bit too long.

It has been proven that transfer prices for players have been heavily decreasing over the past seasons, I am aware action has been taken to balance this out but will anything else be done or do you consider the HT economy balanced now?


We, or rather the HCB (Hattrick Central Bank), are contantly following the economy. Again, we don't look that much on transfer prices (even it that may be interesting too), we're far more interested in the background economy. In general HCB's aim is that the money should be slowly increasing for the general Hattrick team, and to achieve that they may need to take actions to balance the economy (it shouldn't grow too slow, nor too fast) in the future too. As the economy also is depending on the amount of new users joining the game it's very likely that the HCB must take some actions (higher income or higher costs, or something else) in the future too.
