View Full Version : Time is a cruel thief to rob us...

"Time is a cruel thief to rob us of our former selves.
We lose as much to life as we do to death."

Imagine this... it's Spring 2012, you're rocking it large in Crime City, stats of 190 Attack and Defense means you are one of the games big hitters, a one man army in fact, capable of taking on and beating the best of the best.

At the top of the game, seen it all, done it all. What's left but to bow out at the top? So you retire and walk off into the sunset, knowing that you made a difference, that you were someone in Crime City.

Fast forward to Autumn 2012, and you're thinking "Yeah, time for me to go and flex my muscles again, remind these chumps who the boss is".

Unfortunately, the passage of just a few months has seen many changes, and many game-changing additions...

Scratchers arrived of course, with a daily Common-crate-equivalent item for all.

And of course Epic Boss events, that drop Common-crate-equivalents like rain from the sky, and a Boss item of previously impossible stat-boosting power, again accessible to all.

Add to that the now infamous Ammo crates, that mistakenly dropped Rares at the same rate as Uncommons - every Gold spender gorged themselves on Ammo crates, and for many their stats went supersonic.

Finally mix in a scattering of special events with powerful prizes available to everyone at every level.

What you end up with is a situation whereby Stats of anything below 200k means you are only 'above average' in the big boy stakes, because now stats of 400k + are necessary to be a big name, a big shot, a big gun.

So what then for our returning hero? An afternoon of imagined bullying turned to dust in the reality of a game completely different to the one he walked away from only a few short months ago.

The anticipation of hitting a once weedy foe, smuggly planning the "10-0 chump!" wall post to announce his glorious return, the smugness promptly replaced by shocked surprise at the red writing looming large in the centre of the screen. "Lost, LOST, this can't be right"', a rapid check of the foes stats, "WTF, this can't be right, he's a hacker, he must be hacking".

Alas not, no hacking, no foul - it's just that time has robbed him of his former self.

Warrior turned hand-maiden. It's a sad and sorry tale. Imagine if it happened.

lol I was told he had returned, wasn't sure if it was true.

I don't think it's "sad" - it's the evolution of the game :)

He (I'm assuming we speak of the great P) has something to accomplish now :)

Or... maybe he will retire... who knows...

What a sad story...rule of thumb - Once you walk away, walk away forever.

I'm Back!

This burn fella is the cruel one as he punishes our ears

Sounds more like inflation.

What you had to spend thousands on in the past you get for free now. Forcing you to spend more thousands more now to maintain the advantage.

Bet that feels like a kick in the stomach.

His infamous 10-0 chump line 

He even posted and called me a Cheat and Hacker !! Too funny!

Sam , I miss pay am too , he just need to adapt , same reason xeno has stopped spending .
A lot has changed last month , oh get used to it , hahaha more people called me a hacker and cheat ...
especially when they were hacking and cheating themself , asking how the F did I do the stats increase .

People always call big spenders who spent money legitly a cheat , maybe some of us are cheats .
But in time it is simply found out , sorry Pay Am get back into the game ;)

There is a gold bonus thread on the forum , that explains how I gotten my stats :)
