I am still amazed GREE makes that much from this game!

Only a couple players in my faction buy any gold, and we have steadily moved up from 300, to inside the top 125 in just a few months. We sure are not doing anything different. In fact, doing less is more like it. And still moving up. I think we can crack the top 100 before the ships sinks completely!

That doesn't look good, a 10% drop in a month.
Is that just MW or all Gree games?
Can you get their operating costs?

Sadly feels about right based on what I am seeing online. They have pretty much abandoned new players with the jacked up event requirements so new players who do not have information from others are screwed. Even with prior knowledge the game has become so tedious that I now only look at my main player once a day at most and have abandoned the other 40. I stopped rebuilding months ago, and could care less about about IPH.

The game lacks focus and direction, surely gree can afford to give these guys a whiteboard where the devs can map out the overall direction and plan so that the game works as a whole. In other words make the buildings such as unit and defence relevent.

If this points back to the project manager fire them! If it goes higher fire that person and if it goes as far as tanaka, then all is lost and this game along with the entire company will go down the toilet.

Finally, I see that glimmer, that slight orange glimmer.
Some might see it as FIRE.
I see it as HOPE.
That day, that glorious day is coming.

Sad because all they need to do is tell the top brass to read the forum and instruct the devs to fix what we ask for but thats never happened in the games history and is unlikely to ever happen.

I don't blame anyone.
If THE GREE can entice a few to "spend" and many more to "tap" using the existing product, why on earth would THE GREE bother to improve, innovate, or even maintain the existing shell of a THINGY?

No, THE GREE is prescient to milk the existing THINGY for all it provides.
If the "spenders" and "tappers" continue to DEW what they've done for years, THE GREE should continue to provide the minimum to reap the maximum reward for themselves and their shareholders.

They should raise the prices for items. Only 25 gold for a health refill is quite low. It should be valued at 100 gold. Also, 100 gold for 25 frontline deploys. 50 gold to reset a timer, and 50 to open a case. I think if they implemented these 4 price increases, the game could last at least another year!

Yes, you DEW get it.
THE GREE should charge 100, no wait 500 gold to log on to your account.
If you haven't logged on for FOUR hours, the logon FEE goes to 1,000 gold, IN ADVANCE.
If you've been lazy, careless and failed to login in for eight hours, the fee and penalty cost one vault, 1,500 gold.
THE GREE, get them, get paid, make them prove their love.

I'm not in THE GREE's league, but if a faction wants to DEW battle in WD, tax each member 300 gold.

For FL, tax 'em 250 gold, EACH for every battle.

Its time tappers put their money where their fingers go.
It's time for everyone to pay for this great game.

If they would resolve some of the game issues, lower the requirements of events and lower the gold costs overall then there may be a glimmer of hope for some new blood. Personally at this point I don't see putting money into this game due to the stage it is at currently.

Feels about right, in the lower levels matching is very very slow. My C team got hitched up with a monster 5 player, no targets yet we got a 'premium match'. What a joke.

I did 2 battles each on the A and B factions, participation is even lower this time out so the stats are certainly reflecting the decline. Yet both are top 1000.

After playing BB for a few weeks it is a lot more interesting, at least there is some strategy involved and not mindless tapping 24/7. Find I may or may not even bother logging into MW every day because the game is now incredibly boring.

There is such a lack of playability now that the game does not appear to be in any position to be saved other than with a fresh start which is obviously impossible based on time and money spent by the games current customers. Yet a complete overhaul is about the only thing that could possibly delay the inevitable at this point.

It's hard to believe that much money can still be made in this game. But then again if you have started within the year you probably haven't seen the huge decline from what this game used to be.

I would find this screenplay very interesting to see. You would have to get quite a few monkeys and destroy lots of equipment for the dev team's coding scene. Could be quite a budget. I may have an old Tandy PC laying around I could donate if you are going for realistic looking props.

Yeah, but the budget cost of monkey wrangling would be more than offset by the budget saving for the customer support scenes.

One unknown old lady pressing send over and over on prescripted pat responses while doing her ironing and watching Jeopardy reruns should be a cheap scene to film.

You tell me, boss, who DEW you think could play you?

As for me, I see someone like Bradley Cooper, Charlie Hunnam, or George Clooney.
Now, if they were alive: John Wayne, Clark Gable, or Humphrey Bogart.
For that weird vibe, Johnny Depp.
