Today we’ll go over a key ingredient of your success on The Initiative: your reputation.
Don’t take it for granted, it took me years to build mine, and I’m still trying for people to see me for what I truly am: a genius. But, I digress…
Your reputation will be increased primarily by the contracts you fulfill successfully. Logically, failure decreases it, whether it is because your launch failed and blew up in the air or you missed the deadline.
But, reputation is extremely important because it enables or improves a lot of things throughout The Initiative. Let’s go over the most important of them:
- Contracts: first and foremost, some contracts have a minimum reputation requirement, which means you’ll only be able to get them if you meet such minimum.
- Talents: just like contracts, some have a minimum reputation requirement, so you’ll only be able to make them an offer if you comply.
- Loyalty: headhunters are everywhere, and a competitor may poach a great Talent from you. An increased reputation also increases the loyalty stat of all your payroll, hence protecting you from poachers.
- Increased some buildings outcome: visitor’s center and other buildings open to the general population greatly benefits with a higher reputation, yielding a higher visitor count and revenue
Keep in mind you can also be attacked with a negative PR campaign to get your reputation down. So, you’ll need to keep an eye on it to avoid being caught unguarded.
Some have said a well-timed reputation loss, preventing a competitor from getting a unique contract, is a clever strategy 🙂
Some say a good reputation is more valuable than money… I don’t know, but I can tell you it’s important!
