Due to my work/sleep/child raising schedule, I think it would be a bad investment for me. I have trouble keeping my buildings synced and almost always lose one daily collection of my P Tavs.

Anyone regret buying a NC?

Anyone else feeling this apprehension?

Input is appreciated.

Nope... not for me. To hard to collect for me. I regret getting pirate taverns for that reason. I nearly always miss collection on them and feel they just make me a robbing target.

I'm considering selling them.

I'm going for casino's instead... I'm only a few hundred points of getting my first.

I have mine building now and I know I won't collect it 4 times a day but 2.6 times a day is much better than a Hotel or Office Building in terms of payout per day. Factor in that it is a Type A building and it blows away everything else as you upgrade. You should be able to sync your 3 collections in a day to be routine and you will make somebody happy when you go to sleep each night. Do it and don't look back...

LOL, and subway entrances.
I think I will wait until I buy all of the other high-end buildings. After doing the math, I would probably only increase rivals' bank roll, not mine.
Thanks guys

what is the average level for getting a nc because it must take a while to collect all that money to buy it, and then maintain as somebody said they have 2 both lv 3, it must be a extremely large investment

Yes, mine will be sold the second I hit lvl 185. The 20$ million will go to my casino construction. All my other buildings are 12/24/48 and I love it!

10 million or 7 million a piece? Sorry cant remember. I've started buying explosives and my D is at 50k. I was never able to collect all 3 times. My point about the explosives is that most of the time whomever robbed me was only successful every 3-4 attempts but I would lose explosives win or lose. Just needed to switch it up and not be launching the game every hr to collect something. It's my way of playing but I'm not saying its the right way :-)

Gotcha. 50K defense is great...almost double mine. I bought a lot of lower-end explosives a while ago and had my D just over 30K. Been losing and not replenishing them so I'm down to 28K D . I want to get my economy up and start saving to buy only high-end explosives. The Tavs frustrate me, but it's my own fault when they do.

Please don't get rid of your taverns. I know I've collected them a few times. :)

I've got 2 nightclubs. I don't sleep too much but still miss morning collection quite often.
I put a lot of thought in this move. As you, I do have some trouble sometimes collecting Taverns. But the way I see it, it still brings in tons of money as 2 additional buildings. I won't upgrade them till level 2 or 3 before I got my defense to 50-60s. Then even robbing them will be pretty tough for most players. At the moment. they provide nice additional revenue to upgrade other buildings (unless you have a lot of mines and some nice guy starts with D....o visits you daily and you loose 1 or 2 of them :) ). When you got tons mid level explosives, they are not too much to loose.

I have them because they're the best building in the game. I really wish they weren't 6 hours but I usually make 4 collections a day anyway.

Lol of coarse I was talking about land mines :-) my income is almost to 300k even after selling my Taverns. My D is at 50k and believe me, there are PLENTY of people who can rob you with ease and many many more who can rob you if they have enuf stamina.

It's more efficient to upgrade a Nightclub to level 2 before building a second one, but too late for you. :p

OP, just build it. in a day, you should be at least collecting it once or twice. thats additional income too.

Hey Jobadass,

Its a tough call in a family situation if you also have other great buildings available to upgrade (Golds and high level 24s.) I will start building my first Casino tomorrow. I have 2 NC and occaisonally wonder why I did it. I am on pace for cycling them every 4 days or so, so it is actually really good collection, but I am finding it a bit tiresome.

I would say that if you can only get them 3x per day (so 2.4x) you may want to weigh the added 'stress' of collecting and consider pumping that huge cash into Gold building upgrades.

That being said, my cash generation now as I say on top of them is ridiculous. There is a price.

No nightclub for me thanks. But if its a goal I guess I'll get two. I already make a good 5mill a day so by then I should be able to buy one like *snap* that. I prefer the 8 over 6 cause I cam collect when I wake up, right after school, and when I go to bed. Simple yes?

Even if you collect nc twice a day it will blow almost all other buildings away. A level 10 casino output is about 1.237 mil/hr at tycoon. A nc is 2.406 mil/hr even at half the collection its still on par with casino. The ratio decreases as your go down in upgrades and only a level 1 casino surpass nc in output. From level 3 and on if you collect 3x a day the nc will outperform a casino and blows it away at the last few upgrades. Moreover, the upgrade cost for nc are a fraction of the casino. Hard to argue against the merits of building nc when there are no level restrictions to unlock and outperforms all other buildings at every level except for two at level one.

I have night club. It's a game changer. I also have more
Defense than everyone else. Just be smart about it. It's 190k something per
6 hours with tycoon/goodfella. It makes all the gold building upgrades after wedding chapel feasable. Which kinda makes the game don't be silly :p. subject thyself to the hell of NC investment. It's great.

Seriously tho be over 18k atk/def. trust me.

I would say it is definately worth it. I am about 5 days of saving away from building my first. I dont have experience without actually having one, but it is the best money building in the game.

On theory if you were to get every single building to level 10 (including gold) the nc would account for 30% of your income. In comparison, a loft is only about 1%. i think the top 9 buildings bring in about 80% of total income. If you are playing long term def build a nc. Even if you do get robbed you still get massive income when collecting.

As a public service, I provide buildings to be robbed, and a nightclub is one of them.

Do not believe Babytway when she says I never have anything good, it is just that someone else robbed them before she got there.

I'm not sure about the NC either. I still have Comedy Clubs so that I know what my 6 hour collection is like (that's the only reason I haven't sold them) and I miss them a lot. They don't usually get robbed because they are just level 1 Comedy Clubs, but that can't be expected with NCs.

Right now I am thinking I would rather spend $400million+ on upgrading gold buildings than spend it on two NCs upgraded to level 3.

Don't get me wrong, I DO want the NCs, but the 6 hour collection doesn't work well for me so they aren't a huge priority.

At some point or another, you will be robbed. It makes sense to have a NC building anyway because your economy will also grow to a point where you can still reap good cash even after being robbed.

The way you really get full benefit of the NC, however, is to build as early as you can simply because it is easier to increase defenses early on.

What most are saying...the NC is an awesome money making machine, especially when you you upgrade them to L2 and L3+. Let's be honest, robbing an NC has got to be more fun that robbing anything else just 'cos it is such an great looking building!

It is pretty obvious that the NC was deliberately created with this in mind and it is on 6 hour collection cycle because Funzio want to keep the game interesting. Only the most dedicated (insanely addicted) player can maintain 100% collection rates.

Even if you can only collect 2/4 you can more than make up for that by robbing tons of others. I reckon I'm robbing at least 10 a day mostly L1s. So, there is plenty of possibilities to top up any losses IMO.

I'm thinking I am going to build my 1st office building, my 2nd condo, and Hotel then the NC, and upgrade it right away. I don't think I'll build any credit agencies in the forseeable future.
Thank you all for your input, it is good to see all sides.

Already read through the Best of the Best guides. Seems like the Nightclub is a top tier building. What's it's collection period?
