Well deserved !
If SF hq is responsible for latest changes to get more GOLD of us players they just failed !
Let's see if japanese hq can make the game fun again
Like most players I'm willing to spend a few bucks on some fun entertainment...but never on rip-off !
An awesome start on it would be better communication
Goid luck !

Says over two thirds of the San Francisco office have been laid off. Can Gree confirm or deny this please? How will this impact on Crime City?

Two thirds was the number floating around yesterday and early today. Andrew Sheppard confirmed the 30% today.

The original figure was 30%, the update says two thirds. And that emails to Gree aren't being answered ,because most of the staff have been sacked.

Lol. San Francisco would have taken orders from Tokyo. The money grabbing is because of the company's failure to "win" the mobile gaming market. The winners are the ones whose games are advertised on TV.

Funny how OneNut keeps locking threads on a topic that has just been confirmed in this one...Gree is in trouble, therefore Crime City is in trouble..
Maybe if Gree had listened to its customers and their requests regarding CC and its game play they wouldn't have lost so many players.....

When 2/3 of layoffs are revealed to the public, it will lead to more in the future if revenue expectations are low. GREE will need to see a forecast from quarterly earnings and go from there.

1Shot seriously needs to calm down. Members are venting and being nice. No members, players or developers / mods are being shamed or called out and he's locking threads that are very relevant to the game and its future. I played another Gree game, it was a fighting game and the name i dont recall but i played it up until it stopped working. One day it just disappeared and all the forum was cleared. Think the game is gonna be around just because 1 person said so. Go F yourself 1shot. I see why only a handful back you up. Brainwashed ass

I'm no OneShot fan, but you guys ever think he might be kind of scared or something? I know it's a total"volunteer" gig, but still.....

I don't know, ask him. He's stated before that he gets gold for what he does. No one would volunteer for that kind of thing.

Well, I must admit you folks have a point here, and never fully believed that "volunteer" claim. I was just saying and in an empathetic mode.

At the moment I doubt it really matters. Based upon this thread I get the feeling his one shot pistol has been pulled from his holster by himself or ?????

So im guessing that almost the whole forum staff was based in San Fran as 1shot is basically running this by himself, or so I've seen as he's the only one posting.

In case you're reading this, relic, now would be a good time to do something about 1shot. He runs around on line bragging about screwing with people here. He actually calls what he does "trolling the forum" and says he goes around editing people's posts for no reason but his own amusement. He's a terrible mod. Leaving him here without even the empty threat of being able to report abuses to Clementine (who never did anything) is a TERRIBLE idea.

No one at Gree is there to listen. Expect 1Shot to delete your post and/or lock this thread.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Plus if Relic is reading this its for his/her own amusement in between reading job postings on line...

I don't think Bolt should be banned, I think OneNuts or 1Shot should be banned instead, he is an a**hole.

Meh, I'm uninterested in pics as it's completely obvious to everyone except the usual person that the real complaint is that anyone, whether 1shot or someone else, is moderating the forum and returning it to something of valid use to real players. Who cares if he's tweaking the troll somewhere or not.

Just ban and get rid of 1Shot and everything will be fine, along with finally having light.

'Tweaking the troll'. Does that have the same meaning as bashing the bishop?

This isn't really the only dead Forum (Without moderation [1Di*k or 1Shot isn't considered a Moderator] or not a lot of posting), the Knights and Dragons Forum is as dead too.

Alright, this thread has gone a little over the line. A few things.

Yes, I get 240 gold a month for being a forum moderator.

Even with all of the forum admins gone, as they were all laid off, I have no more "power" than I had when they were here, which is none. My only job is to help clean up the forum from spam, trolls, etc.. same for the other forum moderators. The developers that have accounts on this forum like Sirius are I assume in charge, even though we were never given a heads up for this either. We are all just as surprised as the rest of you.

Now of course I have to lock this thread, as you have all gone way off topic, but I'm sorry if I haven't taken my job that seriously or if I haven't been moderating to the best of my ability.

And the end is no where near, I'm sure the developers are working hard as ever (with a significantly shorter staff) to make sure this game is the best it can be.
