How would you like a feature that allows you to upload video of your action in game to a site like YouTube? This way you could show off your victories against rivals or easily show any bugs you find or any number of other things.

I think the server is slow enough already. Video would only make it worse.

Not really necessary. I'd rather the time and resources were used on other things. It would probably only be used as a novelty a couple of times by the various gangs beating each other senseless, best case scenario. Worst case scenario it's used by cheaters blowing their own horns and promoting it, or as a show case for any glitches. I'm not sure why you want people to be videoing bugs.

ONLY IF we would be able to speak into our mic on out phone to record sound. that way, we could explain the cheater's details easier while showing you.

I agree with this as place for cheaters to show off there skills and rub our faces in it. soon as there acct gets banned they just hack and make a new one and do it all over again

Yes, I think it would be great. Sometimes it's nice to show off all your hard work.

Too many other valid issues ongoing that needs resources directed to them. Fix those in the pipeline first, address customer concerns, then allocate resources to new projects.

What in game action? Play is mostly static pics - your hood, event items won, etc. That lends itself more to posting pics & notifications on Facebook, not a YouTube video.

As for "showing bugs" ... You appear to be suggesting that we'd use a secondary website to inform Gree of bugs & problems instead of sending a ticket outlining the problem (and sending pics along with the message if needed) directly to the company. Is there any reason that customer service or engineering needs to see video of the issue to understand what the player is talking about? Time and resources for all could be better utilized.

Having said all of this, I do appreciate that you're thinking of different ways to improve play & the forum. Maybe just start with simpler, more direct things that improve player-company communications & responsiveness to problems.

At this point, I'd rather see things that make gameplay more enjoyable (new buildings, respect items, etc.) Since the game is relatively static, there isn't much that seems to be doable with video. My guess is the community would grow bored with this feature relatively quickly (and would make the servers more apt to crash).

The game does not have much action as such. Its a number crunching game. Its not like FIFA where you want people to see your goals etc.

I know I'm going slightly off topic - but you mention to show off your victories... so I'm assuming you guys want to look at a way to have more "gang fighting" abilities... and having more of way to rub in a win...

Anyways - I use to play a FB game called mobsters (I think?) and it had 2 awesome features that I think would go a long way in this game:

1) a health bar... so you could get killed... if you die you can't attack.
2) attack people that leave comments on your wall... so if you're going to trash talk... you can get attacked - not only by that persons profile - but by anyone that visits that wall...

So lets say I leave a nasty msg on CK Gwiz's wall but I'm twice as powerful as him - well Baroness can attack me via that comment I left on the wall...

:D

This would make having a "gang" MUCH more useful....

I can imagine some players trying to show off, as they frequently do on several walls, disturbing even more whom want to get some fun.

if F/G is trying to boost the game, here are several nice suggestions:

This has got to be the worst idea i've ever seen Funzio suggest and i strongly recommend you sack the plonker who came up with it.

If it's ideas you're after here's the list the community has come up with over the last couple of months. Implement a couple of these a month and you'll be back in your customers good books in no time because i'm seeing nothing but hate towards Funzio/Gree at the moment which doesn't surprise me when your doing things like cutting the event prize pool from 500 to 250, no modifier for the Top 250 prize and cutting the event RP Loot from 500 to 300.

Funzio

Wow, a bit harsh.

Not really, can you remember an idea worst than this one?

To suggest an idea like this, after we had a sticky thread for a couple of weeks where the community could recommend what new content they want implemented is highly irritating. Especially when we came up with around 75 ideas which CCM apparently put into a presentation and was going to show it to us but nobodys heard anything since.

I'm just very annoyed that there's been an interest in our ideas and no further communication since besides this shocking idea.

What the hell are you going to video that anyone's going to be interested in? I'm just shocked at the lack of everything CC related and i'm becoming very reluctent to put anymore money into this game because i feel its dying rather than moving forwards.

Some of those are such minor changes it wouldn't take them long to implement yet it would boost the customers outlook on the "Company" and the "Game" massively just to see something new, better yet some of our suggestions.

07-24-2012, 02:11 PM
I am quoting Bill's post in full because you guys at funzio AREN'T LISTENING.

WE WANT THE FEATURES SUGGESTED HERE. NOTHING ELSE.

You guys have some implementation to get to work on here. You need to VASTLY overhaul how defense works as well. You guys need to heavily examine the items below and get to work immediately, you guys are losing fans and profits.
This has got to be the worst idea i've ever seen Funzio suggest and i strongly recommend you sack the plonker who came up with it.

Would you rather have the developers sitting in a meeting and saying "let's do this great idea" and spend their time doing it or having Mark pose it to the community and get a feeling for whether it's worth doing or not? Let's not presume to know the whole story. The fact is, they could easily not have a community rep and do whatever they want.

For me, in the short term it would be a shiny new toy to play with but it would I think for me it would quickly become fluff and an option I'd not use unless it was for tech support. Though I find screen shots work fine for that. I'd be also miffed if it increased lags in the game.

hi there,
exeland job billionaire with the presantation of the improvements that would be nice to see in cc.
I'm also glad that almost all of my proposals are included.
I think that it would be nice to add few more

the ability to rotate the hood (i have wrote it once)
ability to copy buldings (mostly defensive) and decoration in your hood (would help a lot with trees etc, we wouldn't have to go to shop to buy a new tree)
ability to group buildings and decoration (i'm sure Cold members would love to be able to move the sign "cold" as a group)
and finaly i want to erase all the "news" i don't want to see, many players sent entless messages and i can't get revenge from someone because he is erased from "news"

H-Wood
07-26-2012, 10:32 PM
I really like a lot of the Billionaire's ideas. They were thought out and presented well too.

There were many other great ideas too, balax mentioned rotation, which would be cool.

Spending RP on explosives is an outstanding idea.

Stability is still a big issue on my iPad.

Also, being at level 157, I would like to see some new high level RP weapons of all types available, new buildings and some new decorations added to spice things up a bit.

On another note; I like the new event formats but would like to see the top 500 level come back as well with perhaps a smaller than top 250 prizes. I was extremely active the last two event with only a little gold but got so far below the top 250 after the 3rd day I just tried for the 20. I really liked having a big goal to shoot for and may of bought some more gold if I thought I had a chance.

Just my thoughts,
Good Luck to all!

I'm not gonna go so far as to say this video thing is a bad idea, since I don't see that it will have a negative effect on the game. However, I'd certainly never use such a feature.

Still, I can see how this could work. Charge 5 gold per 30 seconds of recording or something like that. Who knows? It might be pretty popular...:rolleyes:

BETTER PROPOSAL!!!

Why not make the players on the LeaderBoard attackable? They've got crate items, and they should have to defend them. Also, there should be NPCs (non-playable characters) that can be payed to attack characters in the game, and there be NPC bodyguards in the game. Both should be crazy expensive. I'm talking $300M per character or something.

I tried these stupid crate games a few time cuz I was mad that people get to receive great items by buying them with real money, and I had played honestly and had gotten my town up and running, earning lots of money. I was lvl 10 when I decided to try these games, and now I'm lvl 30. These crate games piss me off. I suggested making it easier to get the crate items so that basically everybody playing using cash to open crates should be able to get to 20 items. Let the ppl paying with real money go for the Top 250 / Top 25.

+1

IMO the inventory system could use an overhaul, as it stands you need to make a spreadsheet and constantly update it, couldn't CC handle this with very little new code?

At the bare minimum can we at least have a sort by attk and sort by def option for equipment (if i remember this was in billionaire's list also)? Don't remove the mystery of fight/rob mechanics, but make it easier for us to know what gear we have, and where we need to improve. It would be very helpful to see our lowest item used for each type for attk and defense, we are all working this out anyway.

It's annoying to have to go to a spreadsheet after every play session or every few play sessions to update equipment and then count or calculate lowest attk/def item to see where you get biggest bang for your buck when spending gold or rp. After all is this an item collection game or a data entry game? Cause some of us do enough data entry as it is....
