What does "overlap between tiers" mean?

Like in SA when you get 5 prizes for team & 5 for indy.

Oooh, ok. Thanks. So, we're back to 1 reward for our teir.

(I don't pay much attention to Indy rewards; I get whatever I get, or not.)

Its not really about prizes, you stated an obvious fact that indi is back to 1 prize, commented on how you won't be spending gold and apparently you think the jokes on gree....If you've ever bought gold then the jokes on you, not gree. In the case that you don't buy gold and were referring to free gold then gree doesn't give about you anyways...jokes still on you in this scenario also

And if the joke is on me for spending money on entertainment then the joke is also on you if you've ever been to a movie

I'd make the usual comment everyone makes about not feeding the troll, but it looks like he's been banned, again. We will see if they're serious about it this time, or whether it's just another ineffectual 24 hour ban.

Have you noticed how everythng you do today, with whatever stats you have, is exactly the same as everything you did 6 months ago with half the stats? What do stats have to do with anything?

Just an observation, spending money on going to a movie is paying for entertainment provided by people who produce entertainment for a living. Spending money on virtual currency in freemium games similar to and not excluding this one is paying people who design systems with the sole intention of taking as much of your money as possible, for as long as possible, while providing as little as possible in return. With stats being irrelevant to the user experience I'd be tempted to say these games offer, both literally and figuratively, nothing in return for actual dollars spent.

Nope, still here. I will warn people not to feed you.

Ever seen Malibus Most Wanted. I would venture to say that offered less than nothing in return for dollars spent.

I think I agree with you. If you're saying what I think you're saying, let's just say what I said was an attempt at being polite.

So insightful. I can't believe nobody knew [insert helpful Crime City information] that until you pointed it out. Thanks, TheJess!

As for me, the entertainment I get from this game and any others I play rarely have anything to do with the game play it self. The entertainment is in the interaction with players around the world, different personalities, different values and different levels of maturity. I will admit I do exploit some weaknesses in people for entertainment and o do spend on this game but it's all in fun.

Oh and yes prizes suck! Need to have ip mods back for players who weren't here for them. Should give old ones out that don't stack of you already have them. That is what I'd really spend for

Every one of those things you listed as things you get from this game are features that are freely available to all players in unlimited quantities. Unless you're saying you spend to see if you can force others to spend, in which case neither you nor your rivals are really playing this game.

I'd like to see the tilda blades re-issued since the only reason I didn't get it at the time was that my syn (honestly can't remember if it was HTC blue or white at the time, but either way...) couldn't get enough uzis to complete it. The drop rate just wasn't sufficient despite an all out push to get them. I strongly suspect that unless a lot of gold was spent on energy refills, most teams got their uzis from the energy glitch or by buying them from energy glitchers.

It'd be nice to have a chance to NOT be 20% behind the 8 ball to all of those teams at some point. Just sayin'.

I have that item. I also have an account that doesn't have it. Long story short, it makes such an insignificant difference that there have been wars where the account without the Tilda blade has outscored the account that has it. That might be level related, but until level stops being a factor in ip scoring my opinion is that ip mods are mostly pointless because you need a lot of them to notice any difference.

Still be nice to have it. My own best mods get re-released for free all the time, it seems :)

I have that same experience. Maybe the fact this one has never come back means it really isn't as good as it's made out to be.

Only a complete moron would troll fun threads and try to suck the life out of them. Not naming or shaming anyone. I'm sure Jess agrees with me! He's not a dull c*** at all.

How pitifully obsessed you are with me. Living inside your head ... Such a dreary uninteresting place to be.

Inside my head is a tremendously exciting place to be! There is a queue to enter though, you'll have to join the back.
