I had a rival named mnju_03 that couldn't beat me. He bought a lot of gold and blew up my explosives. The End

This one time I leveled up into the shark pool... It was a frustrating adjustment. I think I was level 120 at the time.

The game crashed while I was robbing a guy and I had to refresh the rivals list over 50 times to find the guy again.

Mine is iTunes blocking me from being able to purchase. Especially during the last few hours of events that I really wanted to win. I was very upset over that.

I've spent more a few times... No 10th. Partly due to iTunes...partly due to crap luck!

Winner gets a hug or a handshake.

Two frustrations tied for first:

Crashes (just had another crash a moment ago) and GREEdzio being GREEdzio. This game has always had so much potential to not only make some bucks for the company, but also be a cool game with depth and purpose. Without depth and purpose it's actually kind of stupid to spend any money at all because event or not it ends up being a contest to see who can spend the most money. It's not frustrating to see that people are spending a lot, but it is frustrating to see the level of ignorance and disregard for the value of money some people show.

Ok so here is one for frustrating. Try having QPR create your double "coldcommander" and call you the fake and imposter. Or the Indians making a email just like yours ( minus one M) to send out messages to your clan pretending to be you,trying to insue a war inside our own ranks. Then deal with 20 people a day asking to join CK, all the while trying to stay organized and help all my members when they have issues. And if that was not enough I get a email today from the beloved Indians trying their best to insult me, takes a bit more then their boring old stories of GAY talk! Stay Cold CC a storm is building!

What you have to do is rob him then post on his wall something even more hurtful.

I had a fight with a guy a couple months ago. I wouldn't stop robbing him then one day he decides to tell me to stop robbing him(he said this in Spanish) so I robbed him again. Then he has the urge to call me a son of a b!tch. I call him an ******* that eats sh!t and things went in from there.

I had another rival who I composed poetry for.
Roses are red
Violets are blue

Frustrating: Attacking CK members relentlessly, pretending to be a CK member, trash talking them, draining all sorts of RP from them and laughing in their face...

and they don't even try to retaliate because they can't t( ._.)

Oh well... I continue to hunt them :D

Same. Except it was the loaded dice and I spent about $150. First time I spent gold on an event and it hurt. Vince, I know what you mean. I felt like a degenerate gambler as the last seconds ticked away and I was empty handed, lol.

Oh, but I would. I haven't been successfully robbed or attacked in almost a month.

Edit: Think I got robbed a couple weeks ago, but if it was you, then I know who you are.

My most fustrating CC story is like this, Quit Giving me in game cash for scratchers and for opening Safes. Frigging BS its the last thing i need is 10K on a scrathcer when I wake up and collect 2mill. or open a safe with 10K and loos 2.2K for opening it. Just now I got 50K, guess what still dont need it. Had a little bit of home brew to top it off so yeah enough with the give away of no good Cash I would rather have a butterfy knife or a Enhanced Bike. I would be pissed if I paid gold for an open to get 10K or 50K. Enough already.

Last night, I had just saved up enough money for a loft. I timed my collections and used most of my stamina just right to be able to pull enough out of my bank to get 750k, leaving about 2k. After I did that, I went to the store, and to my dismay, I saw that the loft would cost me 760k. Somehow I read the price tag wrong.

Although my attack rate is fairly low, I started to panic. Here I am, about 8k shy of my loft, but my big buildings don't ring in for another hour or so and I used all my stamina. I couldn't bank the money again because then I would be down an instant 75k and I would have to wait until the next day. I knew if someone decided to attack me, they would get a pretty mint for my level, but I decided to wait it out. All I needed was a couple/few warehouse robs and I would be good. Just another five minutes or so, right?

So I decided to skim the rivals list and hunt my prey. Well, EVERYbody had collected their buildings. I browsed the rivals list long enough to build up another 4 or 5 stamina. I finally found a guy who had around 20k in cash, and his defense was a few hundred below my attack. I have been successful in attacking people with around 500 defense greater than my attack, so I figured that this guy would be alright. He had some defense buildings, so I thought his defense stats might have been a little inflated anyway.

So I attacked him. I could tell by the slight lag that I had lost. Crap. The results pop up, and just like that, I just gave the dude a quick 30k.

Now I'm down 40k. With only a few stamina left, there was no way that I could make up the cash in time to avoid another attack. I was thinking to myself, what if this guy gets a notification of an attack that he won. When he checks it and sees how much he got from me, he'll surely get revenge. More panic ensues.

The current map I was in required some more items to be purchased for the job, and that would have been more cash spent. I decided to repeat some of the previous jobs, but all I got was chump change. I had never seen my energy drain more quickly.

I had a few buildings that would get me around 28k in about 10-15 minutes, so I just had to wait for that. After completing the jobs, that would make me about 5k short. Just one quick double-rob on a level 7 warehouse and I would be done.

So I started sifting through the rivals again, this time with a much more careful finger. No attacking! I finally found a guy with a warehouse (and a couple backup buildings in case it was looted). I waited until I knew my buildings were about ready, and then I robbed him. I got what I needed, flew back to my hood, collected a few buildings, and got up to 766k with 2k still in the bank. A quick flick to the store, and I got my loft. 72 hours currently remaining.

All in all, it worked out, but I learned a few things along the way.

Realising part way through 'machine gun malfunction' that these missions were pointless and the upgrades not worth doing. I had a L7 machine gun for months and green arrows all in my face. I finally completed it the other day just to get rid of the arrows, is was that or sell the damn things. And I sold my Sports Bar long ago. No more green arrows in my hood. Yay! lol

Most frustrating? ~10% open percentage of latest event. Granted this is a free event, but I feeling this is hella rigged.

Update: with 12 hours to go this event finally showed up...

Mis-tapping & finishing an upgrade, then having to wait for a gold refund :|

Need a gold confirmation button!!! Please.


and the constant crashes
and the new style events
and cheaters
and the last 2 or 3 hours only showing on the news feed
and 499ers doing TL goals
and drop rates being lowered or nerfed
and the lag


ok, lol, I think I'm frustrated now.
