I am so officially out of anything relating to strength in this game.

It reminds me of the peso, when they run out they just make more, till it costs a million pesos to buy a loaf of bread. Previously expensive gold items are garbage now.

Well here is another fine example how greed view their valued customer base. Don't fix any issues just squeeze the life out of what little customers they have left. And the foolish customer keeps handing over their hard earned cash while being laughed at behind closed doors. You have been warned cc players, their is much better games out in the market place and much much better value for your money!!! Cc players please stop playing all greed games! And if any player defends greed and their actions your integrity is being questioned. Some players on this forum defend greed endlessly so the question must be asked, what's in it for you??? STOP SUPPORTING A FRAUDULENT COMPANY!!
Why are cc players who are openly questioning greed practices and professionalism being banned in game? What's up greed don't like it when players are exposing your fraudulent practices????The JonSnow???!!!

Nope. Gree paid over $100MM, have issues with business model in Japan/Global, wants some ROI. Frankly they probably can generate more $ especially if they make it interesting. Last few weeks have been interesting to enough paying players. Can't blame them. Is what it is. Be great if they linked it with a sale it would have been nice.

Let's see if they link another similar event with a sale and get a better response (profit rate). What's interesting and neat about being in their business is you see week to week if your mktg team delivers real value or not.

Wow. This is definitely a new low. I cant believe they didnt even try to make this fun. Just give them money and you win. A big complaint for this game is the disparity between gold vs non gold buyers. Instead of trying to close the gap they widen it. Why doesnt Gree just officially strap a d at the end of their name?

I used to spend a decent amount on this game but for the last 4 months I have rarely bought gold due to Gree completely messing up their android pvp event in which I spent $50 on. VERY few people at my level can beat me (took advantage of the disparity) but I have learned from this forum is that once I hit the shark pool I will be a little fish unless I spend A TON of money.

I will buy 110 gold, buy two single crates and call it a night. Doesnt that sound like an exciting event?! Geez.

Don't disagree with some of your points. Why are you still in the game and this is your first post? What are the other games and for that matter if one has invested time and money where else does one go? Do they have different issues and if they get as successful (top 100 of Itunes by sales) do they run into same problems?

Not defending Gree because I've experienced same frustrations, cheaters/hackers no comp for losses, etc but you can't rave about alternatives unless you know them and others agree. Also if they still are in the Top 100 of sales witht Itunes (someone with Android figures weigh in here on rankings) they have more customers for CC than over 590,000 other money making Apps. I don't think the customer base is small but will agree the longer term players and some money spenders are falling off or will fall off soon.

Last, I've been banned too for questioning why a thread with legitimate points and issues was locked out by the Admin, in less than a few hours a month ago. Not happy about getting whacked for questioning why but it violated rule never to question Admin. That Admin seemed to fade away recently (I've noticed more latitude) but the events of MW over weekend probably have him/her back with a vengeance.

So just sayin' okay to rant but if you really think there are alternatives, name them!

So it is just spending gold on a product not purchasing gold through in app purchasing. If that is the case i will save up another 57 more TJ gold to buy a PT and i will get the first item. Sounds easy enough.

Toolguy
02-06-2013, 06:45 PM
I just noticed the splash screen says spend more gold. Not buy more gold. It appears that they don't want you to buy it and hold onto it for a while. You need to buy it and spend it by the end of the event. At least that is the way I interpreted the screen

Shizzy
02-06-2013, 06:59 PM
So...does it mean use 100 gold or purchase 100 gold? Meaning if you already have 100 gold on hand prior to 2/6 and you just happen to use it this week, you get the prize? Or what about if you do a free trial that gives you 100+ free gold? If tapjoy gold counts...a vault and signing up for the Discover it card will get you over 2000 gold. That would be tempting...

@cooch,

Regarding my previous post being the first, did it ever occur to you that I may have been banned previously for similar posts? It's very obvious funzio and greed do not appreciate freedom of speech!

Why am I still here, we'll I have played cc since it first came out, with the time and energy invested in this game over this time, I am compelled to scream and shout about the "bs" business practice of greed!

As for "other" games, apparently it's a breach of t&c mentioning other games and game providers on this forum, even though I have never found such t&c.

So I will mention the other game and this will get me banned again. If you spend $110 with greed you get a whopping 1500 gold bars the game is extremely one dimensional and unless your stupid to drop a fair whack of money the game has become stale and pointless, no challenge what so ever.

Now to the best game on the market, if you spend $110 on this particular game you get 14,000 gold equivalent. Hmmm value for the dollar, I'd say so!

The game is CLASH OF CLANS by SUPERCELL. This game has great depth, the game providers actually listen to all their players not just the minority big spenders and you don't fell like your being used and abused!

Freedom of speech is our basic divine right, and so it is our right to speak out when we the players who keep these companies afloat are being used and abused! Lets see how long this post lasts!

Jon: I hear you and understand. I think another guy mentioned the other game and then left or was permanently banned. Spaghetti head from the great white north said he was going over. No use to compare/contrast etc.

Companies improve based on proactive or reactive basis. I suppose if enough big spenders left and not much on-boarding of new paying customers then they may change. 80% of our concerns are shared across players and too many threads echo it across CC, MW etc. Let's see. Good luck to you if you go over to the other choices.

So if I spend 10000 gold i get 5% more money from robberies, WTF money is the worst in game currency there is at lest kiss me before i get bend over

Agreed the modifiers are weak, but you are getting a 3,000/3,000 weapon. To be honest, other than %add to attack/defense, what modifiers does someone who is willing to spend 10,000 gold during this period need?

No modifier (within reason) is going to get someone to all of sudden spend 10,000 gold. It's a way increase the marginal spender. If someone was going to buy 5 vaults anyway for the next event (7,500 gold), he/she will probably opt for an extra 2, since they were going to spend it anyway it's now a "cheap" 3,000 / 3,000 item. Same thing for the other levels, if someone is going to spend a vault, they will buy the extra 500 gold now.

And maybe the best for Gree, anyone with <100 tapjoy gold, may be tempted to open their wallets and buy some gold for the next event, because again it's a "cheap" weapon, especially since you're using the gold for another purpose as well. And then after someone makes their first gold purchase, it becomes that much easier to make the 2nd, and the 3rd and the 10th......

Basically, it's comparable to gambling-the addiction builds up like a snowball rolling down a neverending slope. Spending a bit once in a while is pretty acceptable (I spent only like 46 dollars in total but after the Evidence Burner event it just demotivated me to why bother anymore) but it baffles my mind how someone can blow well over 500 dollars for the final item. Ah well...

I'm a few under 100 Tapjoy gold right now. I'm level 84, so I can't buy any good buildings like the Pirate Tavern, Gentleman's Club, etc. What do people recommend? I could buy a single crate, but that still leaves me with 40 gold. Thanks in advance.

Nicky the Nose
02-06-2013, 09:54 PM
@Murf I don't disagree with you, a 3k/3k item is a great item, but not at $500.00 dollars. And then to make it even better they give you an over the top 5% more money from robberies, and the other two prizes. This is not a fair deal, it cost them what 2 mins to code these items and they make it sound like they are doing you the favor. Maybe $500 dollars is no big deal to some but its sometimes 2 weeks pay for others. I'm just saying if they want the bucks they need to give something in return not this pile of crap

cooch
02-06-2013, 10:11 PM
Like I said this is an experiment to see how many gamers will play err pay! I'd bet most folks that do spend gold will do it with 1 crate and get the 'free' weapon. Some may actually pay the $500 pixel purchase. Only Gree will know.

Install CLASH OF CLANS or any other game that's not serviced by greed. It's the best thing you could do for yourself.

The wording is pretty clear on the splash screen. spend 100 gold to get Aggressor Blade.

Perhaps its easier for them to track gold spending than gold purchasing.

You will get the car and the armor. What you want to spend your 2k gold on is your business I suppose... whether it's buying crates, buying gold buildings, open boxes or resetting timers if there's a new 10/10 event starting tomorrow.

That just a question im not going to by for this. But 100 gold = 1 item if i spend 2000 gold i dont see why dont take 20 items + bonus 2000.

bald zeemer

Anything's possible right?

Just says to spend the amount of gold, not actually buy it...hehehe.

Tapjoyer's go!

Post here in this thread if you can do it! Awesome to see and way to use the system for you if you can manage it.


With that goal in mind....I'm going to shoot for the 100g....lol.

GREE isn't doing it large enough in my opinion. They should offer some sort of insanely powerful weapon like 2,000,000 attack and 2,000,000 defense for purchasing 15,000,000 gold. That way losers like CK Bam Bam and HB can bankrupt themselves out of the game.

I will open and close about 5 to 10 apps then check for gold on CC then delete and move on. I had 30 or more apps waiting to be downloaded last night and did a dating site one. those take a litle longer as they want you to fill out info. All fake info.

I get a video like once every couple months so feel lucky that you get them every week.

I think gree should start some gold building or something like that which can give u gold not too much but a decent fraction which help all the players free & spenders as well.
Free player earning gold from this may be tempted to spend some money to buy small amount of gold for some event like this....
Tapjoy gold is very very slow increases twice daily i suppose, so it takes 50 days to get 100 gold which is way too far..
Now I think gree should change their staff working on this game say the guy whose responsible for keeping the game alive with innovative ideas.
I agree the item images are all similar they should start giving some new designs of weapons/vehicles or anything.....

hey traz and steveo how are you managing to get so much TJ gold?:confused:
my videos work like once a week and the other offers just tell you to buy or sign up for something

Same here. tapjoy.com to download apps. Most of the free apps get you 1,2,3 or sometimes more of gold. Open the app, close the app, check for gold back at the game then delete the app. Bit tedious, but free gold. Don't have any videos or gold link button on my device so it has to be the apps in order to get gold.

One mystery app gave 9 gold today. Usually don't get ones that high, but hey it was free. :)

Does this work on android or just iphone? I've tried installing tapjoy apps directly a few times, but have never got gold for it.

Mate, it says at the bottom of the splash screen - "Rewards to be distributed at the end of the promotion". You didn't think Gree would get it working properly so it gave you immediately did you? ;)

Here's a challenge. Use tapjoy to get the 100g and 2000g prize.

Anything's possible right?

Just says to spend the amount of gold, not actually buy it...hehehe.

Tapjoyer's go!

Post here in this thread if you can do it! Awesome to see and way to use the system for you if you can manage it.


With that goal in mind....I'm going to shoot for the 100g....lol.

Hi TRAZ,

You got 100 gold in one day. Do you use offers with cash or just free offers ? And how many ?
In Sweden I got only 1-2 new free offers every day. It's impossible to get 100.

02-11-2013, 08:25 AM
@ottomanempire there are usually quite a few free offers available for me. Last week there were a couple free ones worth 14 gold for filling out surveys. Maybe in Sweden a lot of the offers are not available, but in my offers 100 is possible. It would just take a lot of time downloading apps for 1-2 gold.

One mystery app gave 9 gold, others had 8 or 11. I hadn't been on tapjoy for quite a long time. Free offers only. A LOT of apps. No idea the actual amount as by day three they all blurred together and I would delete them after I saw the gold register in-game.

I got many gold before, I have 9 gold buildings. As you know, you could get 1 gold every hour a couple of months ago. But now there aren't too many offers for free gold and the offers worth just 1 gold. I think the offers are not valid for every country.

I understood how you get gold so quickly but I prefer not to sign up and give my credit card details for these offers

Now every free subscription on my Tapjoy has been consumed and finally made up to 150 gold for a Gentleman's Club. Hopefully this works....Will be leaving TJ for a while, waiting for new offers came out.

Surveys just give 3-4 gold and most of them don't work. The country you live affects offers and gold. So it seems I can do nothing with it. Have more free gold :)

Pulled 1080 tapjoy gold over 3 days, but it's been a full-time job, and I wouldn't do it again. Only possible because it was across three different accounts so the offers were fresh for each one. At this point everything pays only 1 gold, they definitely reduce the value of each offer as you complete more. The yousendit trial offer dropped from 19 to 14 gold over the course of racking them up, for example.

A few pointers if anyone wants to try:

- The trial offers are the big money makers relative to installing apps. 80 gold to sign up for gamehouse and cancel the next day, much easier IMO than installing 25-30 apps at 2-3 gold each. Just make sure to cancel in time...I thought I was all good and did end up getting hit for $12 for eMusic. They gave me another free month to not cancel for another day, so 10 (trial) + 12 (paid month) + 12 (free month) = 34 mp3's isn't bad for $12 anyway, plus I learned a lesson about tracking offers.

- Make an Excel / Google Docs spreadsheet to track the offers you complete and match them to the running total of gold received, since the payout is delayed for a number of apps and you can expect a bit of hassle to cash in on at least 1/4 of the ones you do.

- Take screenshots of offer completion landing pages, and keep all the confirmation emails you receive.

- Be prepared for becoming a spam magnet. A throwaway email address for this purpose is almost necessary.

- Be prepared to contact Tapjoy support. A lot.

- This is one of the rare instances Android players are at a big advantage to iOS players. 710 of the gold I racked up was on a fresh Android account while the other 370 was on two iOS accounts, one of which was also completely fresh. The same offers are worth just tons more on Android. The Join AARP offer, for example, is worth 35 on my played out iOS game, worth 47 on the fresh iOS game, and a whopping 96 on the fresh Android game. I've also found the app installations to give credit more readily and more generously. And the user support from the company that administers the program for Android (Aarki or whatever) is head-and-shoulders above TapJoy. They resolved all but one issue before TapJoy had even responded to my first one. Android offers also don't seem to drop in value the same way iOS offers do.

Hope that info helps somebody. And you can take comfort knowing that you're actually making the spammers pay out cash and earning money for the developers if you're too cheap to buy gold. Now get out there and monetize that app!

Last nugget: Android players - the GoDaddy offer: it's $4.17 for 192 gold and a 1 year .com domain registration. It's really a no-brainer.

Note that GoDaddy defaults to auto-renew after the year (although they do a good job of notifying you several times well in advance) but make sure to change this setting if you don't plan on renewing. ...Actually if you don't want the domain part then I'll split the cost of the offer with you for transferring it to me after you get the gold. I'll send you $2.17 by paypal/amazon pmts/square/serve/whatever method you choose. Shoot me an email, it's [my username on this forum] at gmail and I'll let you know what name to register and send you the money.

So 192 gold for $2, can't beat that. Unfortunately I think the offer is only available on Android accounts, as I haven't seen it on either of my iOS games or tapjoy's website.

I assume you either directly or indirectly work for these companies. If your boss asks for a report by feb 12 and you dont have it by then, you get fired. In this case the event ended at feb 12 11:59pm. It is now Feb13, 2013 12:33 pm. If you ask me, this is major incompetence on their behalf. I for one will not tolerate B.S from a shady company.

Is this your first event? For many of the events, Gree/Funzio spent anywhere from a few days to a few weeks sorting out genuine winners from cheaters. To my knowledge they have always given out the reward.
