Man itís a struggle. 6 months ago I was just under 2oo iph. Then I dropped down to 240th ish iph, after I ran out of ltbís to upgrade. Seems like the monthly ltbís arenít enough to keep me climbing. Now these ltbís they re-released early November got me back up to under 200th place. Man, I woulda thought thereíd be at least a few players under top 200 that were inactive. But it sure as heck doesnít seem that way. Itís a friggin struggle to keep climbing.

Also, I woulda tackíd this post on to my old thread. But itís locked. Not sure why.

Your post must have inspired everyone, I've been waiting for your top 100 update.

Running out of ltbs is disheartening, it shouldn't be a thing. The flood of them in November was a welcome surprise, does this happen often?

Hood is looking good. Keep at it.

It’s the second time this year they did these ltb’ All at once. I spent maybe 50 bucks to build em all instantly. Honestly, I think they should be doing two sets of ltb’s each moth. One that costs gold to build, and that is the normal cash ones. I’d be buying those all the rime.

I was wondering when your next update would be. Thought for sure with all the buildings released since your original post you'd be closer to top 100.

That’s pretty good. Considering my power rank is like 10,000th rank.

Although I did just drop out of top 200 iph just now despite having 9 upgrades going at once.

+1 to that. Sounds like a great idea.

I've just entered the t5000 (a 2 year break really kills the iph lol) and I thought I'd quickly climb the ladder again but my builders spent most of the time sleeping away, there's not much to do without something to build.

@ namedud. Way to kick ass!

Top 5000? You should be climbing pretty fast then. It’s interesting to see the stats on rankings. Gives a sense of how many active players there are I think. I have one category where I’m around 19k rank. Pathetic, I know.

I’m at 179th place for iph. I figure I can reach 150 by the time all these ltb’s finish upgrading. Or so I hope. There are a lot of cash buildings that I haven’t built. But I honestly don’t think they’d help my iph any.

Indeed, nice ranking namedud. Would love to see a collage of your hood. I’m thinking of putting one together of mine. Stitching it together. Hard finding a way to upload the jpg tho. File size is usually too big for a lot of image hosting site. A screenshot on my new iPad 12.9 can range between 10-20 mb.

Thanks man. Iph really is the funnest part of the game now.

I did make it to 154th. So still climbing! And looks like they just released some more ltb’s too. So that’s very helpful.

Is it safe to assume that everyone up that high is still very active? Also, do you have any money buildings left to upgrade?

I don't really know how active other players are. I know I'm not very active though. Upgrades wise I am idle until LTBs come out or if they drop a few buildings at once. Currently I have 4 of the recent rereleased money buildings upgrading and I'll be idle again once those are finished.

I have about 4 left as well from the last round. You likely have a lot more ltb’s than I do since I missed a lot of them in the past. There were long periods where I didn’t log on. But yeah, once ltb’s finish upgrading, I’m idle as well. The regular monthly ltb’s don’t really help to push me higher. Rather they just keep me in the same place.

Top 100 is no joke. I donít think Iíll reach it for a looong time. Currently 133th. Thereís definitely pockets of players at different rankings. So one month you might move up 50 slots, another month youíll be stuck trying to just maintain. But considering that being top 500 in any catergory is a feat by itself. Especially when you look at other categories that show us in the several thousands place. Well at least me.

I think I have all the LTBs. Started my last available upgrade today so I'm basically idle again. And still ranked 17th. I suspect I am probably close to if not at the highest rank I'll be able to reach though. The accounts ahead of me probably have prize buildings I won't be able to get, and/or stronger building output mods.

The regular non ltb cash buildings do very little to help you along at this,point. I think you can reach 250 easily just maintaining the monthly ltb’s. I just hit 115th.

I'm racing up the leaderboard. Currently ranked 3430 woot! Lol

It seems I've climbed 1000 spots in a month.

I'd be happy with top 500 to tzora, still have a lot of work to do with my paltry 0.8b iph :)

Edit: wtg sleazy. Kicking ass!

Booya!

You know, sometimes I would finish something like a level 9 to 10 ltb upgrade and nothin. Maybe even drop a couple places cents last checking. But then I’d complete something as silly as a level 1 to 2 upgrade and bump up a few slots. It’s tricky.

Reaching top 100 from having had barely cracked top 200, has taken me around 7 months and around 200 bucks. Having started this journey in another thread.

Like a lot of us, iph is all that’s left in this game for me. But It is too difficult for me to progress iph with just the monthly ltb’s. So I’m pretty sure this is the end of the road for me. Unless they release another batch of ltb’s at the same time, then I know the regular monthly ltb’s won’t do anything for my progress.

I mean, if ever there was a sure fire way to get players to spend more, it’s through ltb’s. Releasing more than the normal amount. We all know the CC economy is shattered beyond repair. So why not do it Funzio? Or Gree. Or whatever company forked over 20 bucks to buy this game.

Hehehehehe. Cc was my first city builder. So it’ll always have a place in my bowels!

Nice. On to top 75.

Yeah it seems a rank increase happens at a weird time sometimes. And the monthly LTBs after a certain point are adding at least the same (if not more) to rivals IPH gains so it turns into a tread water or sink situation. I dropped to 18th while I was idle before this igloo building and even though I am back to 17th for now it's looking like my peak rank, fully upgraded, is probably 18th or lower. Other players near the top ranks could easily have more old buildings I didn't get, or prize buildings I won't have, or stronger building output mods, or not even have completed all available upgrades yet, etc.

Once my IPH ranks peaks the only thing left to do will be to hoard cash and try to become the richest lol

Would be nice to see an iph leaderboard. I’ll say this, everyone at your level is active. And everyone there buys and has access to everything new. So yeah. It would be tough to get any higher.

Perhaps we should start the Trillionaire Club. I’ve got a few trillion in the bank. Damn near crashed the servers when I tried depositing it all in one shot!

I might hope to crack top 100 sooner or later. Other than a small jump recently, though, my total cash rank rarely changes. Could be later rather than sooner.

It was to inhibit necro'ing old threads...

I think the lock is at 2 months ....with all the info DECA provides and chat apps being primary for spreading info, the fun threads get locked too quickly.

I'll ask if the locking timer can be increased.


Regarding IPH, you inspired me, too! ;) :o
