I am level 9. i play MW mostly but began this game a few months back. I see it's different in that you don't have casualties. I also see many of you are on "teams". Looks like iph is still important. I love boss events and would like to play but need to be level 10. What other things should I know?

Well, post your stats and IPH and we will go from there. I'm not sure if you have to be level 10 to get the boss. My girl is level 8 and she had the last boss, but she's on android.

eh if you are a free player , get as many scratcher as you can , if you intend to invest for epic boss end reward and badass stats , just buy crates till 30-50k and camp your way up with epic boss events alone .

the rest just have fun socialising flirting whatever Rocks your boat ;) .
Stay away from mental people who claim you as there sole property .. But CC is a lot more chatty then MW.
Game mechanics , to get a free golden army , you need to be 156 farm the last call at cartel compound .
And you are done , the rest is psychological warfare same as MW when you fight golden armies .

The lower levels are the hardest , cause of way too many campers/hackers around with ridiculous stats , once mid 50 they stop a bit , past 100 they pick up again .
Do not reach 100 fast if you go for longterm , check the buildings payout , do not worry about stats win or loses .
just find people to eh have fun with lol .

Never!

But seriously, the ONLY thing you're going to find up in the higher levels is a TON of players who spend a TON of money. You'll have to prepare to lose a financial arm and leg if you're serious about competing with them. And while it's true that there's some pretty serious spenders down in the lower levels as well, it's not nearly as bad as what you'll find up there.

I tried but it did not work...sent ticket also. The TOilet paper event did not work for me either but some of my allies got them. Sent ticket again and was told you had to be level 10. Same problems as MW.

I agree with those that say to level through the epic boss events...the 20-40 items you will gain each event + the daily scratchers will make you a formidable opponent as you move up. This is primarily what I have done with my camper account. The stats are inflated because I still have 45 TP from that event.

well... those are insane stats for one...

I don't even have that and I've been playing for a year o_0

The best thing to do at your stage of the game is level up ONLY through PVP and gain loads of RP - dump everything into stamina and attack and that is all... it will take you for ever to hit shark tank from JUST PVP... and don't rob... just PVP....

Don't buy ANY RP weapons/items till you reach chain whips...

You need level 10 to get any events , remember the tresh hold needed for the next epic boss loot .
if you reach the 81-101 epic boss levels and are able to farm past 50 with stats for free, farm as many rares as you can .
Cause those are each worth 240 gold if the rares are enticing , past 100 it is payday again unless you have 1 million stats .
but basically it is exactly the same game as MW just more social CC ... And nobody forces you to compete , unless you want too .. Aside from sharktank , nobody fights longer then a week rivalry .

If you're absolutely going to stop camping and level - I'd say only come out to farm Boss Events, then just go back to camping again. It'd take forever, but by the time you hit the higher levels, you'd still be a pretty powerful opponent.

I started Boss Eddie Sato at level 7 or 8, and ended at level 15. Those first few levels go by very quickly. I was able to defeat the first 3 bosses while still in the first tier (under level 26). My advice -- only get xp during boss events! Ohh, and tapjoy :) You'll need a little gold to finish off the first boss probably. After that, the next two should be free, so long as you're still in the first tier.

Have fun!

Well just attack players (no robbing since you make enough cash) and just collect RP...

and invest into attack and stamina...

Unless you are planning on spending cash, that's about all you can do...

Boss events will benefit you too cause you are overpowered for your level....

How many mafia?
buy attack explosives they all add to beating more bosses. And you won't loss any because, your not attacking anyone

Apart from if you want easy boss events or want to try and keep your losses to 0 for as long as possible there is no other advantage to camping in CC. In game money is all but worthless so IPH does not matter, and that is coming from someone with a 4M+IPH

I personally have been camping in between epic boss events. I find it provides entertainment as well as the benefit of camping (building economy). I also just participated in my first PvP event and got the 650 wins. I am now lvl 42 with 35k A/D (with a few TP).

Also I agree with coldjoey in that buying the most expensive Attk explosives you can for the bosses.

Looks like you have had a good start but I would definitely start the epic boss events.

Also sent you an in game request.

In game money is awesome for earning more in game money.

Don't you need iph to purchase good units later on?

There's no good high level stuff but at low levels steel garrottes and camaros can help boost your stats. Ultimately if you play long enough all your equipment will be respect, farmed or a product of events unless you're into consumable explosives.

Your cash will be handy for a long time yet. Everyone is correct about the consumable attack explosives. You should load up on them for the bosses. Your cash will also buy you defensive buildings, but read up on them on here before upgrading them.

Gree recently increased the stats of in game cash units over in KA. You never know, they may do the same over here. Unlikely, but wishful thinking never hurt anyone right?

Respect items are much better then money items and unlike MW items in CC are not consumed except for explosives. You need some money but its not as useful here

To attack rivals and earn RP you need only stamina (and better attack stats than your rival)
with RP you can obtain good items like Chain wips, RPG, FCG,....

To farm rare items you need lot of cash to buy other items required to do that jobs.

You have received here the most important rules of this game, mixing diferents ways to play CC
- camping + boss events
- fighting to obtain RP
- or both two

Those are some great stats and you've made a very good start. I pretty much did the same as you but the other way round just collecting and upgrading my MW account. When the boss events were released in MW, i slowly started crawling by only participating in them to get stat increase. I also did the same with my Avon account in CC and i've won every boss prize so far.


In game money is awesome for earning more in game money.

The above is true but some of the upgrade prices are huge so if you like the economy side of the game then you'll need a good IPH


Don't you need iph to purchase good units later on?

The only thing you'll need in game cash for is building upgrades and expansions. All weapons will be obtained with RP or from events.


Sounds like I've been wasting my time then!

You haven't wasted your time, you've made a very solid start. You just need to change your strategy now, i did the following with my camper account.
Camped for as long as possible until i reached level 10.
Only participated in boss events between levels 10 and 25 (Boss Tier 1)
Only participated in boss events and robbed as many laundromats as i could to accumulate Respect Points between levels 26 and 50 (Boss Tier 2). Currently got 121,000 RP saved.
Started taking part in all events between levels 51 and 75 (Boss Tier 3). Currently sitting at level 68.....undefeated.

Your best strategy now is to take advantage of as many boss event stat increases as you can before you reach level 100. Collect your scratcher daily and save as much RP as possible whilst levelling as slowly as possible.

Check out my boss event thread for all the details regarding boss events in CC and take advantage especially if you're a free player. If you're a gold spender then just buy loads of crates. Problem solved.

If you want to camp IMO 29 is a good place to camp. It keeps you in the lowest bracket for bosses and if you Tapjoy you can get some decent gold buildings to work on upgrading. When you get to 25 or so go back and get all your maps to level 5 to get the bonus skill points before you cant to PvE anymore.

Pretty sure it has been established that the lowest tier ended at 25.

1-25
26-50
51-75
76-100
101-200

Unless this changed recently
