Credit Agency - or just skip that one.
I already have 1 Hotel - could build another right now - or cheaper option would be the CA and then mt 2nd hotel later.

second hotel , it pays off really well...

Don't understand why people delete hotels/loft ,they look awesome and pay really well , even if robbed .

If u are on point collecting your 8 hour buildings go credit! Plus pretty cheap to upgrade.
They really pair nicley with taverns , buy two upgrade them along with taverns and you'll have huge income increase.

I think I will end up doing both - just trying to determine order but maybe doesnt matter really.

Credit Agencies are a waste of time imo.. they don't pay much, upgrade times are long. I would go for your Condos, Lofts and Upscale Clubs.

8Hr's are my least favorite buildings, i don't know why. But never the less, to each is own.

No my longterm for planning was just have tons of building no decorations .
And just able to stand being robbed , so If I wanted to play every 5 min , I could .
If I wanted to play daily I could , but you need thick skin for that .

But basically even missing a collection time on loft pirates tavern and hotels .
The 30% was substantial to keep them in my eyes .

Anyway what fun would it be ? if everybody went for 6-8-24 strategy , you would lose so much time in looking for buildings to rob , that you lose time lol .
Then you might as well go for a no income strategy .
The trick to stand robberies is just leave the buildings uncollected , those you cannot collect .
Anyway I like to leave open baits ;) , so they got something to rob.

But like said before everybody play there own style in this game .
There is a what you called collection strategy , but the best is just ignore stats strategy ;) .

Im sorry - I shouldn't have put a question mark there.

What I meant was - I didn't understand your first post about people deleting lofts & hotels - that isn't something I would do -

People delete lofts and hotels , cause they can't stand the robberies !

But they forget to calculate what income it gives for 30% collection .
And those buildings are some of the best , even if you miss your collection time .

i couldnt stand robberies and hood campers, im using landmines for the additional defense against attacks since they became available. if u lose 2 landmines at least if someone with 2/3 your stats is robbing the lvl1 pirate tavern, you lose also 300k. the peanuts u collect after the rob dont cover the loss on money.

thats the main reason for my 24h+ hood. i cant make sure many collect logins during the day but i always can collect my 24 million. and buy tons of new mines and sarins for the war, or save em up on a quiet day. :D

That is why unconsumable explosives is so hot Vitus ;) .. I know about the consumable explosives.
But that is the whole story , unless you have the stats to use them , defensive consumable explosives .
Are a waste of time and money . beter go for defense buildngs (who are also a waste of time and money , but atleast they are permanent and a good bluff factor ) .

Sure if you have so much time like Plux to build so many defensive buildings and correct ones too .
Then they do ad value , but since perfect defense doesn't excist in this game .
Why waste time with them ;)

How is a defensive explosive a waste of time? Do you mean the 10 seconds it takes to purchase them?

The money invested is beter put into offensive , or building or upgrade !
So even that 10 second is a waste !

yes... I used to think "Hey, it's really no harm to buy a million stun grenades... I can afford them easily even if they get blown up every day."

Until you find yourself restocking them constantly...

Then you get the thought of buying 3000 at once so you don't have to restock all the time.

Then you find yourself tapping the screen three thousand times!

Then you give up on defense explosives :)

my money is useless, only using it to replace explosives and save up for more useless money upgrades.

the mines are still better than the last call thats why im using them, and i like to give my enemy the feeling they hurt me when blowing 20-30 mines a day. then i go and just buy 100 of em again lol.

im almost up to 100 last calls so far but back to completing maps for the xtra skill point. after that i might go for 500 and stop using mines. by that day i will have a bootcamp and no income anymore, just like all cool ppl play :P

Sasha: do whatever floats your boat. I'd like to eventually have 2 of every money building. Collecting from my hotels always makes me smile. They're both at level 2 and I will be upgrading them in the near future. I doubt that I will be upgrading my Credit Agencies.

No that is silly Vitus , it is a clicky game , the more to click , the more fun it is !
Even tapjoy 1 gold every 3 days is fun ;) without having to really work !

So point is of this game is those who can click the most wins !
Well that is how I see it :p , maybe I am wrong !

Not who can click the least wins ... but maybe I am taking my analysis of the game a bit too far .

V - I like your style!

I feel the same way about def explosives: if they think they are hurting me by blowing up def explosives, they are mistaken. ha, gives me a reason to spend my money instead of banking it all the time.

I'm mid-160s & I just started buying landmines. I really don't have the IPH for lm's but I don't care... still fun... and my IPH will get better sooner or later.

The way I think about it, the one with the most money wins. That's the way it works, right? Build your money buildings, protect your income if you can, but if you're blowing up your money buildings because you don't like getting robbed, you might as well quit.

Well you've got to have a goal, right? This game doesn't really have an objective, but if you don't make one for yourself, what's the point?

Personally, I think think the point is to collect money. I really don't see the point in destroying all your income buildings.

after a few months of lvl 200 u might rethink this. you can make some good money from robbing and just doing the latest map jobs. with all the rich hoods around you can make more money than u collect with a million dollar hood every day.

as a new clan member you could use a strategy against ur enemies, if there going to be some. so why give the enemy the pleasure to rob you?

it is all about attack/rob, not farm money till theres no tomorrow. in my opinion that is.

until the day funzio/gree adds new items to the shop which are better or at least equal to respect items, which will never happen

PVP just gets more RP, which just gets RP weapons which only helps you on PVP (or robbing).

Money lets you buy more money buildings, explosives, and quest items - and thus I think it is actually a bit more useful. Granted it doesn't even take till 1m/h to the point where you can afford most of the map items without too much trouble..

to the original topic - I decided to avoid 8h buildings, going only with 6/12/24/48. Went with 6h only because the NC is such a huge income earner even if you only get two decent collects a day off of it. There are only 2 8h buildings that will generate noticeable income at higher IPH, and neither of them is on the Casino/NC/PH level so I figured screw it.

lol! I like tapping my iPad all day... I like wasting my time in the funniest way possible... that is my only true objective, besides cleaning, cooking, washing, taxi-ing, cleaning, etc...

Everybody has a different reason & objective for playing this game over a year :)

This is the whole point Vitus , what happens if everybody adapt that strategy , how are people even going to do events ? , aside from using gold ;)

The same complaints about 499 , was that people couldn't do thug life goals .
Imagine everybody forced to farm pve for money :p , since nobody has a hood worth robbing !

Cause those hoods worth robbing suddenly have a long waiting que for collections .
The point is to play what you find is most enjoyable !
And if you cannot stand being robbed , well then maybe no income is a good strategy .
Same as people going to 499 to avoid attacks .
Same as people calling themself Alex ! ( see am fair :p)

As long you have fun your way , who cares what others do , competing at this point is futile lol .
With the events and things totally shifted into burn money spenders reserve gold , so they keep buying .
Just do what you think is fun and enjoyable , lets hope Gree longterm strategy pays off .
Or have a vision they want to achieve , aside from earning money .

agreed Dravak, just figure the strategy that fits you most and gives the best entertainment for the time/money you spend.

I have my Ipad beside my PC at work - I tap constantly - when I think no-one is looking. However some idiot always pops their head over or sneaks up behind me........how rude is that...........lol

I also tap on the train to and from work.....while cooking etc. etc. - just like you said!

Why does PVP matter? Only because you've decided that your goal in the game is to have the strongest stats... but other than that who cares? If you don't have any buildings to protect, what does it matter that you have 500k defense or 20k?

The Hotel.......building now

And a fine choice it is. I built my hotels b2b since I had a plan in mind already for how I wanted to place them in my hood with the condos. Don't regret them at all, the payout is good, just deciding when to upgrade them to L2.
