I like to play Offworld when I get home from work and I generally have a great time doing so. I find that I get frustrated in the endgame, however, as I get bought out for much cheaper than I would expect.
Now, I've looked at some relevant forum posts/wiki sections, so I assure that I have tried to figure this out myself. Here's my dilemma in a screenshot:
At first glance, this might seem accurate. My shares are @25.49, and I have been bought out for $254K. This is why I'm confused, however:
In order to buy one of my shares, it costs $93K (or $186K in this case, were I to try and buy one from Anastasia). My target share value was very close to Anastasia's at the time:
Now, what I'm wondering is why I cannot buy out Anastasia for less than $955K (5 shares at $95K x2 because of how the buyout works), but Anastasia can buy me out for $254K? We're in identical situations and our stocks are at similar prices. I own half of the AI's stock and they own half of mine. Is this an adjustment for difficulty? (I have it set to manager).
Beyond this particular case of each of us owning half the other's stock, this happens to me every time I get bought out, regardless of whether I own shares in the opposition or not. I look at my cost per share, and then I am surprised when an AI with assets similar to my own can buy me out long before I can buy them out.
I'm sorry if this is a known bug/UI error or something. I've tried searching a few different terms and I haven't really found anything.
