Losing Money to Be a Tycoon - Chapter 1054 - Even Gods Bleed?
Chapter 1054: Even Gods Bleed?
Shanghai, Long Yu Corporation.
The conference room was filled with gloom.
Zhao Xuming shrunk his neck like a chicken in a slaughterhouse, trying his best to reduce his presence.
Eric, on the other hand, looked increasingly upset as he read the report.
Obviously, they already knew what had happened over the weekend.
Following Teacher Qiao’s video, the trend on the internet completely changed. Players who had almost lost their memories from the lucky draw suddenly felt that Tengda’s benefits were more beneficial!
This was especially so for the lucky draw model of “Fitness Battle”. Not only did it have a conscience, but it also had a very educational meaning. It immediately pulled a huge gap in the thought realm!
Eric and Zhao Xuming had thought that Tengda would not retaliate since it was the weekend.
Thus, Long Yu Corporation was also on holiday on Sunday and not on full alert.
It was too late to deal with the public opinion on the internet. They could only wait for Monday to report.
“As expected of Boss Pei. It turns out that he had already arranged for a backup plan before he could relax and take a break.”
“This move is simply taking drastic measures. He did not engage in a competition with us. Instead, he deconstructed our motivation for this lucky draw. This is the so-called downturn.”
“However… how did he predict that we would use a lucky draw?”
Eric subconsciously glanced at Zhao Xuming.
Zhao Xuming quickly cleared his throat. “This… I think we fell into Boss Pei’s trap. That’s because we used most of the preferential and promotional methods for our original activities and the 515 Game Festival. Only the lucky draw method is useless.”
“Boss Pei predicted that we would use the lucky draw mode, so he prepared the article in advance…”
Zhao Xuming tried to analyze it forcefully. The main language was all ‘we’.
Obviously, he was the one who came up with this idea, but he definitely could not take the blame alone. Since everyone had decided together and no one had raised any objections, everyone had to take the blame together.
Eric was also very kind. He did not continue asking and changed the topic. “Alright, let’s not talk about this. Boss Pei is good at scheming. We can’t avoid making mistakes once in a while.”
“The key question now is, how should we deal with this lucky draw?”
Teacher Qiao had already predicted in the video that the special prize for Long Yu Corporation’s lucky draw, which was that car, would definitely be won by the ballers in the end. What’s more, the ballers would definitely pay more than 100,000 yuan.
That was a checked move.
Now, a large number of netizens, whether they were participating or not, were all staring at who would win the special prize.
If it was really taken away by a baller who spent a lot of money, it would mean that Teacher Qiao was completely right in the video. This lucky draw was a fake probability and made money. Rare prizes could only be obtained by charging a lot of money. Ordinary players could only be accompanying them and could not get this car.
In fact, this lucky draw program of Long Yu Corporation was indeed designed this way. Teacher Qiao was right.
Thus, Long Yu Corporation was considering whether to forcefully give this award to an ordinary lucky person to prove that Teacher Qiao was wrong.
However, this way, netizens would wonder if this was a secret operation. The ballers who had charged a lot of money in the lucky draw would also be very unhappy: Why did he not get the car even though he charged the same amount of money as him?
This was awkward.
It seemed like no matter how this car was distributed, it would offend people and get them scolded!
If they followed the original plan, they would be beasts; but if they changed the plan, they would be worse than a beast.
Everyone lowered their heads in silence.
Eric sighed softly and continued. “What’s worse is that Tengda seems to have secretly changed the probability of event 515 yesterday.”
“There is no concrete evidence but many players guessed that the drop rate of various rare items and even cash red packets had at least doubled!”
“Tengda has a real probability. The hidden modification is to increase the drop rate; we have a fake probability…”
“As a result, the players’ trust in us has greatly decreased, and their trust in Tengda has reached an unprecedented height…”
Everyone remained silent and lowered their heads.
Everyone knew how serious this matter was.
Many players on the internet were mocking them: They didn’t think that Tengda would secretly change the probability!
However, the other companies would secretly change the probability and cheat people. Tengda would secretly increase the probability and give players double the benefits!
If they had to pay for the 515 event, such behavior would definitely make the players who had previously spent money unhappy. However, the event did not make the players spend money. The players who had previously received rewards could still continue to receive them. Thus, all the players were elated.
After this matter was exposed, gamers became even more passionate about Tengda’s 515 Games Day!
While the money-burning war had not ended completely, Tengda’s popularity and reputation were already showing signs of total victory.
Eric considered for a long time and could only answer his own question. “We should follow the original method for the car. Many people have already drawn tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of yuan in this lucky draw. If this car is given to these people, they will not lose their mentality.”
“As for the public opinion online, we can only think about it slowly after this period.”
He had to choose the lesser of two evils. Relatively speaking, he still had to take into account the mentality of the ballers.
What’s more, even though the popularity of this lucky draw had plummeted because of Boss Pei’s downturn, it was only incomparable to Tengda. Compared to other games companies, it was still very conscientious and worth it.
Therefore, the players would not be so ruthless as to criticize them to death. As long as they avoided the limelight and did not fight Tengda to the death, some players would appreciate it.
Zhao Xuming quickly said, “That’s right. We cannot be led by the nose by Boss Pei. We have to follow our own pace.”
Eric glanced at him, feeling a little tired.
At that moment, Zhao Xuming received a message on his cell phone.
He confirmed it twice and then beamed with joy.
“Tengda is already considering selling their building!”
Eric perked up when he heard that. “Are you sure? Is the source reliable?”
Zhao Xuming said, “It should be reliable! Tengda seems to be interested in selling the building that Sloth Apartments had just bought and renovated a while ago. They said that they did not ask for a sky-high price either. Obviously, they want to sell it quickly.”
“This information has been verified multiple times. It shouldn’t be fake news!”
Everyone’s expressions quickly improved in the conference room.
Eric smiled as well. “Indeed, we did the right thing! Tengda’s funds can’t take it anymore. They have to consider selling the buildings!”
“I have to say that Tengda’s funds are really abundant. It has persisted until now.”
“We have to continue burning money!”
“At the very least, Tengda will not be able to compete with us until Boss Pei successfully sells the building and obtains this sum of money. We just have to create a new activity after Tengda’s 515 Gaming Festival. Then, we can let Tengda take a unilateral beating and snatch back all the popularity that we lost previously!”
“We will definitely reap huge rewards if we burn money during this period!”
Everyone in the conference room beamed.
They finally saw the light of victory after persevering for so long!
Of course, Tengda had many buildings. If they sold one building at a time, they could last for a long time. There was no doubt that this money-burning war would continue for a long time.
However, this represented a signal.
After burning money for a long time, Tengda was finally unable to make ends meet.
No matter how much Tengda burned, it seemed to be able to earn it back. It was like a god that would never bleed. However, once the god bled, it meant that it could be defeated!
At five in the afternoon, Pei Qian prepared to knock off.
He, who was preparing to sell the building, felt refreshed, as if he could see the light at the end of the tunnel.
However, just as he walked out of the office and scanned the employees in the office, he suddenly stopped. He felt that something was amiss.
What was wrong…
Where were all the snacks on everyone’s table?
Pei Qian remembered that most of the employees’ tables were filled with snacks when he first arrived. They ate non-stop. Only some employees who were seriously trying to lose weight did not eat snacks. However, most of them would take low-calorie snacks or sugarless drinks.
However, everyone’s desks were empty today. There were no snacks or drinks!
Pei Qian was stunned. What was happening?
Wasn’t everyone hungry today?
He specially went to the pantry to take a look. Wasn’t the snack area filled with snacks? There was no shortage.
What was going on?
