It is not possible for anyone to stop changing/evolving. This is because the surroundings are always changing and one cannot help to evolve to survive.

Man to Businessman

In the previous article, I talked about change. It is a constant, which to be considered in every decision. For example, when recession hit the world in 2008, it was not possible for any corporate to survive without adapting according to the recession. Recession is like a parseltongue, which only harry potter could decipher. The kind of decision/change which one adopted decided their fate. Decision could have been reduction in profit margin, manpower, supply or dormancy or aggressive business or something totally different. Some benefited, some survived and some died with those decisions. A decision providing short term success does not mean that it will also provide long term success, those who manage their decisions can only become Microsoft, TATA, Google or Apple. But, the main point is that everyone has to react to the change.

Runescape

In another case, world’s number one MMORPG Runescape is at the scale, because it reacted to the changing needs of the customers. A concept called Grand Exchange was introduced around four year back, to create auction concept in sales of virtual goods between players. It helped in price stabilization and transparency. More demand in features was created like provision for data during trading to make market more competitive, like:
1) Current demand and supply of the products along with the price quoted by different players
2) When a user go for “sell” or “buy” option in grand exchange then the user should be displayed with all the buyers and sellers who want to buy and sell the product with their quoted price respectively

The issue of traveling speed has been raised and provision of faster traveling methods around the map for free users has been recommended especially for high level users who can spend money for such comfort. It is important for game developers to continuously upgrade/change themselves even they don’t want to meet the demand of the users so as to remain number one.

If you cant keep up with the change, the hope is in the ability to control its direction,as explained in next section.
