Just wondering do you get robbed because you forgot about collecting your buildings as you were too busy on the forum LOL.

Forget, but seeing this made me go look and there were my Pirate Taverns...LOL. I just can't get the hang of 8 hour buildings.

Not as much now. Seem like everyone is doing attacking goals, and move on. But hey, if you have a few modern clubs, lofts, warehouses laying there, it's bound to happen.

Yeah, my hood's all over the place right now. I'm thinking about just shutting down for a day, let it all sync together. I get robbed anyway, and I've got a while to save up for anything significant anyway. Why the hell not?

No, i actually don' get robbed.
Once in a while i will, but for the most part, i can leave my hood synch for a day and be fine.

The key is strong defense / defense buildings.

I have my 8's in tune with the first collection of my 12s/24s/48s... then I make sure I get the mid-day delivery and just before bed... can get 100% of 8s that way. But there are those evenings I forget or get busy... and then the mice have a lot of fun with those pirates.

Never did sync my g-mens like I wanted to. One of these nights someone is going to have fun... those g-mens are like $72k per hit for a robbery

Do it! It's a lot of fun. Plus, it fills your Empire Times with new prospects! :)

I set alarms to set alarms on my phone so I don't forget collections. I've gotten pretty good with 8 hour collections however I'm syncing a PT tonight, it will be the first time it gets robbed:(

I will sync all my builds once I am satisfied with the upgraded income.

I just got my P Taverns also. Last night they were up for collection at 4 am so I wasn't sure if they were a good idea. I now have them set for a good collection time all 3 times. I'll always be able to get 2 good collections but might get the 3rd time robbed constantly. Not sure how I feel about that.

Yes, most definitely. Sometime 8 hours of sleep is just not enough. If I know I'm too tired to collect, I tell all the cool people on my rival list so they can get it instead of the douchebags.

It's never a "few" prospects, it's one jackass with like 80 stamina who does his best "little engine that could" impression, and goes 4-for-76 and takes the value out of the upscale clubs. And of course, when you check him out, he's like 16k/17k, with a $12k income per hour.

I was robbed two or three times in the past while I was editing public CC-related Google Docs or CC Wiki pages. Guess no good deed goes unpunished. :p But that was quite some time ago. Relying heavily on synched 12h/24h/48h buildings now makes it much easier to remember my collection times.

Idm my 3hours getting robbed. They provide me exactly 40K/collection right now, it doesn't bother me if they get robbed over night (or duringthe day).

The only 6hour I have is my nightclub, its obviously gonna get robbed once a day, but gettin 3/4 on it is fine.

I keep uphrading my 12's and 24's so they all way out of sync. They cause me problems but thats just the gane. I also find (its prob a glitch) but if I collect quicly and bank immediately as i log on I get the full amount even when robbed when my news bulliten pops. Sometimes the amount will decrease as I bank it but half the time it wont. Once in the bank its safe.

Never been robbed because I've been on the forum since I'm usually actively playing at the same time, but I do get robbed... a lot. It's because of the work that I do. Since I work at night I usually sleep for a while as soon as I get home, so I'm awake for less than 12 hours at a time so my MT's and Rock Cafe are quite vulnerable. Also, most days I'm so busy while I'm working that I may not even have a few minutes to pull out my phone and check my 3hrs. Fortunately, I have my 24's and 48's synched and have an alarm and I take into account the upgrade time when I do upgrades so that they stay synched. But it was painful to get them there- the day I had to just leave them out there for the taking.

I do find it a bit amusing when I log in after I wake up and find that someone has robbed the Carousel or some other lowly target, though perhaps others think the same of me when I hit their Clothing Store for $60 a pop and leave many more better paying targets untouched but I just can't say no to the Respect.
