View Full Version : Milspec Will be Boycotting the Raid on Egypt Event

After alot of thought, after alot of reaching out to Gree via CJ, Tickets etc

We have decided to sit out this event

As a Top 25 Faction we spend Alot of time & money on the game, not to mention within events

Few Reasons


Total disregard for us as customers has disgusted me
The sense of enetitlement and oh they will keep spending money we don't have to address issues stance
The lack of transparency
The lack of communication
The total disregard for the wishes of the community to shorten event and have them spaced a minimum of 30 days, firing off event after event shows GREED
Not fixing known problems
Not treating the 2 platforms equally ios & android it should be a level & equal playing field
The Greenland SCAM you pulled starting it over a weekend where you knew you'd have to extend the event because of a so called holiday
Allowing hackers to run rampant in the game and not doing anything about it because your internal discussions deemed it forces us to spend more gold and upgrade our units
Giving extreme special treatment to a select few factions & players allowing them to RESET get refunded all of their gold and start all over buying new current stronger units
Ignoring the fact that some users have found a way to abuse the system and attack the same people over & over & over multiple times a day for weeks straight costing people units, cash and their valuable time
Events are designed to cause mass casualties in order to get you to spend more on units, cash and to desire indestructible units
No live fixes or support during events, Android users had a massive glitch giving ios players a big advantage



Bottom line is things need to change. I've personally spent ALOT of money on this game and I have put a full stop on that until some of these issues are addressed and FIXED!

My Entire Faction 30 + Players will NOT be spending any money with you Gree during this event. I estimate this will cost you between 25k-50k

We will play free hits only, and hope for a top 100. It pains me greatly and is a tough decision considering how competitive I am, ask anyone in my Faction.

I hope if anything this opens some eyes, and maybe some you will join us

that is a weak boycott...sitting out completely would at least show them you mean it.

03-05-2013, 10:33 AM
Why would they care one way or the other, sit out or play free makes no diff. It's ALL ABOUT the money to them, EVERYTHING they do, every event is carefully and tactically created to make you spend money, and we will not.

RESET??? is this true? Reset to a few selected faction?
That would be unfair... How true is this?

Cook--I don't agree with you. Milspec has it right. He's hitting Gree where it hurts them most, in their bottom line. Gree doesn't care if you play the game for free when you boycott, it cares if you stop spending money. In fact, not playing only hurts the players, since they lose the source of enjoyment they derive from the game. By playing for free, they get to keep it while still using Gree's resources. Now, the real question is if a single faction boycotting is going to make a difference. Bottom line, it won't. Milspec will need a lot of others to join him before Gree notices a dent in their revenue stream. If that happens, then he will have succeeded.

As much as i respect your reasons and decisions to boycott the Egypt War, there is little evidence it will have any effect on what GREE does. From what i read MW seems to be at the end of its shelf life. I don't think they ever designed this game to be a long term buy in. More a few levels. Spend money because you want to build up quickly and then drop out. Its a good cash generation model. I don't think they anticipated so many long term players, thus turning off many lower level start up players, due to the super players who dominate everything. (Hence revenues drop and game shelved).
What has worked is then re-coded and next game born... And the cycle begins again. We all know we are the 'guinea pigs' for Crime City. and Crime City will be the model for the next and so on.....

If u will use only free health dont expect youll land top 10, its impossible unless each of your members will buy a few hundred gold..
Youll probably land top-1K or 4K..

Anyway.. If all those reasons mentioned above are true then I think all factions (aside from top 3) should join the boycott..

Ummm... Crime city was the first game in the series. MW came second, then KA, then MQ. Just correcting the record.

I know of a couple of factions that have gone to free hits only during this event. I recieved a response stating that I am now in the bonus program after being in it for months. I have yet to recieve my bonus for February and have now stopped buying gold.

03-05-2013, 11:54 AM
25-50K? you think each player in your faction will spend on average $1,667 buying a total of 25,000 gold, on this event?? If that were true, then why boycott? you could easily get top 3.

$50,000/42 players in faction=1.9K per faction member

1.19K/$100 per vault = 11.9 vaults...*1500 gold per vault = 17857 gold (mind you this is assuming there's NOT a sale, in which case the total would be even greater)

17857 gold/25 gold per refill= 714.2 refills. 714.2 refills*4 hits/refill = 2,856.8 hits per member.

2,856.8 hits/member * 42 members = 120,000 hits.

120,000 * 225 points per hit = 27,000,000 WD Points, enough to overtake Ferr's Emperors, and enough to give PUN a run for their money, in the last two battles.

again, this is assuming you have ONLY 30 members, that there is NO sale, and that you have NO bonus gold being used.


of course, this entire post could have been summarized in a few words: 1) your estimations for the "dent" in GREE's paycheck they will receive based on your "boycott" is incredibly inflated; 2) your "boycott" can hardly be taken seriously by GREE, as with 1000's of competing factions, even if only a fraction of them spend gold, their cumulative total will make your boycott look like nothing.

my advice, quit complaining about GREE

$50,000/42 = $1,190 / member in gold purchases.

The rest flows nicely.

Let's call it 12 vaults / player. 12*1500 g = 18,000 g, but you forgot the 4 FREE hits, and maybe a few "regen" hits.

As far as giving PUN a run for our money, bloody unlikely sonny.

Why do we worry with an 8,000,000 point lead?

Heck, we slow down when we're up by 4,000,000.

You also assume a very difficult per hit total - 225 per hit is often impossible.


Otherwise, your premise is sound.

Your last sentence summed it up rather succinctly, unfortunately your advice won't be heeded, it'll be hated!!!!

Youll probably land top-1K or 4K...

Nope with 42 members, all the bonuses bought, and actually playing a full series of matches they will easily slide into top 500 by my guess. More likely top 250 if you play the entire war and not coast at all. My bunch does not use gold, I only had 12 active members last war and we only ran 40 matches. We got squeezed out of the top 1000 in the final closing hours because we all have jobs.

The only way to hit them in their wallet is to have PUN, Ferr, AND super faction all sit out this war. Now we are talking about a dent. NOW you're talking about $50k. But good luck doing that.

I dont think PUN would like letting another group get thier name on the winners board. They own two sections of the map and are planning on coloring in the spaces in between with thier flag as well.:rolleyes:

After alot of thought, after alot of reaching out to Gree via CJ, Tickets etc

We have decided to sit out this event

As a Top 25 Faction we spend Alot of time & money on the game, not to mention within events

Few Reasons


Total disregard for us as customers has disgusted me
The sense of enetitlement and oh they will keep spending money we don't have to address issues stance
The lack of transparency
The lack of communication
The total disregard for the wishes of the community to shorten event and have them spaced a minimum of 30 days, firing off event after event shows GREED
Not fixing known problems
Not treating the 2 platforms equally ios & android it should be a level & equal playing field
The Greenland SCAM you pulled starting it over a weekend where you knew you'd have to extend the event because of a so called holiday
Allowing hackers to run rampant in the game and not doing anything about it because your internal discussions deemed it forces us to spend more gold and upgrade our units
Giving extreme special treatment to a select few factions & players allowing them to RESET get refunded all of their gold and start all over buying new current stronger units
Ignoring the fact that some users have found a way to abuse the system and attack the same people over & over & over multiple times a day for weeks straight costing people units, cash and their valuable time
Events are designed to cause mass casualties in order to get you to spend more on units, cash and to desire indestructible units
No live fixes or support during events, Android users had a massive glitch giving ios players a big advantage



Bottom line is things need to change. I've personally spent ALOT of money on this game and I have put a full stop on that until some of these issues are addressed and FIXED!

My Entire Faction 30 + Players will NOT be spending any money with you Gree during this event. I estimate this will cost you between 25k-50k

If the top 3 and top 10 factions all boycott the event, the other factions will spend a crap load just to make it to the top 3 or 10. Boycotting wont do any good but gain you respect while the same people are glad you are no longer a threat.

Hello ...
Changes are needed.
Personally, would increase levels. 200-500
Reduce construction time. reduce land costs.
All units act, without building a base and a super army. the game loses coherence of the military strategy. etc....
ban. ip block cheaters.

The game needs to grow, many sharks in a fishbowl. the game has a future, but you have to make it bigger.

There is no way any other teams on here spend that much even if they tried.

Very good points and much respect for your sacrifice!

Though, I think GREE killed the two following birds with one stone being the introduction of factions:
One is make more money.
Second one is that they countered the boycott threat as it was when everybody were lone-wolves. Sadly, I think PJ and Ferr (and anyone else in a top faction) now have much less free will and influence to start a boycott,
partly because they have to answer to the rest of the faction
(so does every individual in every faction now),
and partly because the top is so competitive and the top spots will simply be lost to someone else!
So, hurrah GREEd! That's definitely a "check".
And it might even not be too far fetched to call it "checkmate"... :/




As much as i respect your reasons and decisions to boycott the Egypt War, there is little evidence it will have any effect on what GREE does. From what i read MW seems to be at the end of its shelf life. I don't think they ever designed this game to be a long term buy in. More a few levels.

What has worked is then re-coded and next game born... And the cycle begins again. We all know we are the 'guinea pigs' for Crime City. and Crime City will be the model for the next and so on.....
I've had the exact same thoughts ever since the super-imbalanced money buildings appeared, followed by events with 3-4x the usual unit stats, shamelessly prolonged BfG, shamelessly close Egypt, replacing faction PvP with a crate event having a 8x the usual stats grand prize...
...all I see is a last spurt of a money grab, with absolutely no care about long-term sustainability, as if they already decided that this is a closed venture, but delaying the shut-down until the money-flow dries up, in the meantime squeezing as much out as possible.

I think we should get used to the idea that:
"This week might be the last week that modern war loads and shows my base - instead of an error dialog"
Think of how much time, effort (and money) you've put in this game, what if it all suddenly was gone?

GREEd's last, ultimate and grandest money-making scheme could be "holding our games as hostages from us, demanding ransom for access..."!

Say you're going to boycott... then once the event starts, your faction is competing for top 25, while simultaneously complaining during the whole event. Only to get yourself banned for spamming the board with thread after thread. Then threaten to leave the board and never post again.

Either stick to your guns, or don't start a thread like this.

Hope it works out for ya. :)

Boycott hardly ever works in a capitalist system where money is the king/god and many other people are still willing to buy products.

More than 4000 guys play MW and many of them spend money on gold. A boycott by a mere 30 players won't bring any change.

I really do hope that's the truth CJ!
I'm really enjoying this game and it's community, but I'm also aware that I'm investing huge amounts of time and effort into MW (for good and for bad).

Pass it along to the highest-ups that they need to be friends with the players/customers, not enemies nor indifferent to everything but money. That's when GREEd can get rid of the "d" and get the "AT", also that's how long-term survival works...

Ok, newsflash. Gree is a for profit business. Everything they do is to generate money. I was not aware that they ever said anything different. Unless you work for a non profit corporation, you are employed to help your company produce money. If not, there's a resolution for that, a going out of business sale. Is three weeks to soon, yes. There are a few things I would like to see changed too, such as shorter events. Having said that, it's the same for everyone. Hackers? They have made strides and the skill point hackers are gone, yes there are still other types, but far less than before, and not as intrusive. I'm happier today with the efforts being made than I was when the wd event was first announced. Just noticed they once again have changed the dates for the event, this time for the better. Guess they could not figure out what day Friday was on the calendar.lol. This game has never been perfect, and probably never will. I believe we may see some further improvements in the near future. Look at the new cash counter. Cj said its a stopgap, but again, an effort. I would have thought they might get less grief if they let us know more about what they are working on, but I'd say recent Events have led me to believe that no matter what improvements they would discuss, they would catch grief anyway. Try looking at the positives, and at least give some praise where it's due. I have yet to see any positive comments about the cash counter, just complaints about all the notices, about how long it shows up, etc. my lord, they nerfed the skill point hackers. Where's the thread " skill point hackers nerfed, praise gree". Everything is always negative. Sit out the event. Look for all the negatives, I'm sure you can find plenty. I'd prefer to say thanks, gree for fixing some big deal things. Why do you thing they started a thread for our input on changes. No need to do that if they never planned on making any. We have seen signs that hey are indeed working on things, yet we chose to ignore these signs. I see everyone worrying about what everyone else is doing, instead of what they can do to improve their own factions, instead of tring to bring down other teams. Most of the factions could do so much more for themselves with a few simple changes, yet I see their efforts spent on negatives instead of positives. If members don't agree and want to leave, they are not evil, and it's better that they did leave. Your goals and theirs do not match, why try to force them, or call them names. Spend your efforts finding other players that fit the rest of your faction. Maybe you take a step back, before you can take a step forward. Enjoy the game and the event. Don't make it so life and death. We have been accused of this, but you know what? I know we have more fun than any other faction. And it has nothing to do with being in first place. I have called this a social game. We have interactions with each other. I can see talking smack to opponents, but why are you p,aging with a team, of you don't enjoy it, or the people that you play with. Don't let it get too serious, the guy you're playing against this event just might be your teammate in the next.

It's been utterly ridiculous to android players since the first day it became available to android.

I wonder have those developers ever tried to play on android themselves.
It seems it took them 4-5 months to realize there indeed are some tiny glitches on android.

It is getting better now. But can they not working that hard to push new events one after one, instead fixing some existed problems? The A/D stats, the most important stats, are still utterly ridiculously wrong in android profile. Is there any other game in the world that messed up these? don't need to mention those disappeared buildings, the long matches to rival bases.


It's also utterly ridiculous.

Small pebbles start avalanches.

If they want to sit out paying for this event, all power to them. Think what you could buy instead of what would be invested in this event.

I am all for it being every 2 weeks. maybe it will break the bank on the top ones enought make make it a little more competetive for the rest of us instead of the same ones always landing in the top because they have more money to blow.

go ahead sit it out. no skin off my back.

Appreciate the support guys. Found it amusing "Gree" checked into the thread but avoided responding to even one issue or point. Just wanted to assure you they'd be around for you to keep spending money on it. Somedude you're absolutely right it's simply an ATM machine when it comes to these games very little strategy and no skill what so ever, I'd like to see some human element come into play versus who can spend the most, and this is coming from someone who can spend whatever it takes. Bottom line is anyone who has bought gold is a PAYING Customer and deserves to be treated as such, if your local store, restaurant or manufacturer treated you this way.. not only would you NEVER buy their product again but you'd bash them and let all your friends know what crap customer service they provide. This is a PRODUCT that you spend your hard earned money on and your valuable time, and I believe we all have the right to expect more.

Again thanks for all of the support, pm's etc.

i'm going to select option b and i'm going to go all math on you fools. in a three day event without gold i don't think you can score much more than 30k points per member, so let's say an average of 25k. for 42 players that's 1,050,000. if greenland had been three days top 100 would have required 1,272,360. qed.

Good one on ya Diesel. OTS has also decided to go no-gold/very light gold as this event just follows too closely after the last one. And the fact that so far we have got NOTHING we've asked for in that 120+ page thread on WD Suggestions. And we got NOTHING that we asked for after the first WD event.

E Above top 50 cause they couldn't stand not spending gold and dropped a few hundies each on the Sunday.

I stick with my earlier prediction of B. I think it comes down to the determination to still play. Being down in the Kiddie pool, i can't tell what matchups you all get but it still all comes down to how many points you score, not how many times you get your butt handed to you by another group. Also, if you only face the same size/strength groups, do you still try to take out the maxed out fort without health packs or just score half point shots.

WOW!!!

You may not:

Discuss activities that violate our terms of service (this includes discussion of cheating, hacking, botting, etc.)

So you can't talk about people violating the games rules? We're just supposed to accept it? Or can't discuss whether someone is or isn't? Maybe they are legit just doing something new and we don't know. This is truly a cowardly move.

We were in top 250 and are not participating in Egypt at all for many of the reasons listed here. Our main reason was the short time between the two events as we did not want to have to spend thousands in gold just to rebuild after Greenland. I wish more would sit out totally in protest and make the developers wake up and listen.

A ramble with some real advice.

I boycotted Mc(probablycan'tsaytheirnamewithoutbeingbanned) for years. Posted online about their evil products did the whole 9 yards, I think I actually promoted their name, they accepted my efforts as 'helping get the name out their'.

I also played an online game for 7 years spent thousands and enjoyed it for at least 6 of the 7 years. Then I notice the game was on it's death throws with tons of pay for new content and cash grabs etc and I just didn't play anymore. Slowly I watched the online numbers shrink to super low and it died.

Boycotts don't seem to do much in my opinion but just stop spending and let others figure it out on their own. If the company feels it in the pocket they will try anything to pull it back on board, including listening to advice we have given for the last few years. If they shut it down... Highly unlikely... at least you didn't spend too much on it.

I've never regretted spending thousands on an online game as I played literally thousands of hours and loved it for years. I do regret not ending it sooner and trying the last year to milk fun out of something dead.

I don't think MW is dead or even in the throws of dying. I do think people will spend a lot less on WD this time round and the faster they put them back to back the less they will make. Looking @ Gree's financial status does show a different trend.

http://investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/financials/financials.asp?ticker=3632:JP

I do think that this early in the faction era there will be someone else that wants to step up and fill you're vacancy spending more then they have before, we stopped spending this event as well as a faction, it'll cost us a few hundred places I'm sure but until we have our own faction issues resolved (our leader has lost access to his base and Gree is slow to fix it), we won't bother spending money as a group.

Now a bad unsolved ticket for 1 = no cash from 20-50. Factions may have milked cash from many but have created a new level of social bond that Gree may not be ready for.

I do respect your decision, I think it may be too early on to illicit a 'We should all boycott' response.

Dudebot121256
03-09-2013, 06:08 PM
Are they? I mean there both addictive and both have harmful side affects like your wife leaving youTrue but it's more complex than that. Yes, they're both addictive but drugs are way more addictive than a video game. You can get hooked on crystal meth by trying it once. Drugs also have much worse side effects like increased blood pressure, brain damage, organ failure, death, etc.

funny. You have no power as a consumer. They cover stuff like this in business school. It's called the Five Forces Model. One of the elements is the strength of the consumer to impact pricing and other decisions of the firm.

Here's some news you're not going to like- you have NO power. Further, the loss to Gree to support demands from each player like this would be a headache. CJ and the forum is here to solicit your feedback. They do what they can. I'm also upset about some things that they do, but you will not change a corporate policy. Nor will your faction. Also keep in mind that Modern War is one of many Gree games.

Also, I am the one that kept attacking you. I am not a hacker.

Why did I keep attacking? Because I offered to ally with you, but instead of becoming my ally, you threatened me with your 50k bonus (which didn't work out so well for you, did it?), and then you cursed me out and then started a threat saying I was hacking.

And when I kept attacking you because you attacked me back, you spammed my wall, sending 30+ messages. I either saw you on my rivals list or in my news feed and made sure to be anything but nice because of how you acted. I didn't use some elaborate hack to find you.

A little bit of sugar goes a long way.

lots of us here dont like stuff about the company but we send tickets to them instead, if you have proof about them then post it on your own twitter page and leave the forums alone.

You said in your guidelines members where not to buy new gold, is that what you actually did or did you just aim for top 100 regardless of the need to buy new gold and therefore not a boycott but just a lower participation?

Damn nice finish. we had the same 10 or so spend moderately to heavy (myself included)... and 30 folks going free, but werent as active as we'd have liked.. we finished just outside the top 100. Ugh.

this event was crazy at how many factions went NUTS spending gold... point totals that were top 25 last event now barely got you into the top 60.

Not sure what our faction philosophy will be going forward or my own personal one.

appreciate that. not sure who we'd "take" and who would not.. and how guilty i'd feel for abandoning. Been with this group since factions started. Wish the group was comprised a bit differently, but also dont want the obligation to HAVE to spend XYZ or be online for ABC number of hours. I happened to have the 2nd highest WD points for us for the 2nd straight event.. but that may not always be the case.

Ugh. Just worn out and seeing china starting up so close.. just irritating.

Hard decisions to make. But thew goal should be more fun, less stress, less money spent for higher rankings.

We won't do this if it's not fun anymore, neither should you

I feel you Milspec,
EHU had gold left over too, but again we just tried to stay top 100. Even with 20+ gold players though, staying top 100 was tough. We even fell as much as 200k outside the top 100 and had doubts, but like many factions cut things close and poured it on in the end.
Congrats to my teammates, but unless we drop our free players and replace them all with gold players, might be the last top 100 we see for a while :-(

I'm sorry, but I don't understand why you people spend so much money on this games. Step back and reevaluate your life.

1. There is 0 skill involved in this game. Zero. Time + money = win.

2. Hackers are everywhere. If I spend money to win at something, there better damn well be safeguards in place to ensure legitimacy. It would be like going to a casino, playing games with risk vs reward, but then someone runs in, steals chips, runs out, and nobody does a thing about it.

3. People like money. If someone figures out a way to get more money, they are likely to continue this trend. Yes, GREEd is totally obvious here. But it's you're own damn fault for spending money in the first place.

And all you big spenders, don't give me that "we pay for your game" crap. Buying a little gold here and there, fine. That supports the system. Spending the obscene amount of money just for bragging rights in a cheesy board game? That is downright pathetic.

Wow mighty big of ya to chomp on some photoshopped crap and convos between people who aren't even in our faction LOL, and even make a sig out of it. Really represents your faction well Trollbot.

Mils, look up "Integrity" in the dictionary, then move on to Monster Quest. I here you can fuse units or something.

Busted.

I looked it up, didn't see you there.. but did see you next to whiner jumping into something they don't even understand. You do understand this all happened because I REMOVED someone. Nor was I being accused of hacking, nor are those even convos with myself or anyone that I can tell from our faction. I think you're a bit too excited to try and bash someone over a nobody with no reputation, a hidden identity posted some crap. Makes u rather brilliant, and shows your true colors.

Man, did this thread really resurface? Come on. Ill admit I got excited the first time I saw it, but really? I have heard of teams that beat Milspec in Ireland. Let it go.
