In just curious if anyone has any insight on why so many hoods have few or no buildings. Are the owners deleting them or do they disappear over time due to inactivity?

Typically people delete their buildings when they quit to game so as to not get robbed (also better known as "winning" the game). You see more and more of this in the higher levels too...

I always figured that's how I will go out. Sell everything, donate it all to the syndicate, hand over the reigns, and move on...just not today.

I had 2 games going in both CC and MW, and it started to suck when Gree had constant back to back events. I "won" my 2 smaller games, and sold off my base/hood and donated it to the faction/syndicate. Selling everything was really the only way to be sure I actually quit and wasn't tempted to go back. These games are like crack, and it was all-or-nothing. Now, if I can just get myself to "win" my big games too...

But we're all "winners". I have the cake graphic to prove it.

In CC, I did rebuild a bunch of crap buildings for people to rob during PvP events :) If anyone is around level 102, have at 'em!

One day, when I "win", I will go out in this same blaze of glory....

I don't really understand that - if the account is not being used, then surely your low level buildings can only be robbed once (well up to 3 robs, the last giving-up $1). After that they'll just appear as not ready for collection..............a teaser to people who may waste time coming back again and again when looking for low XP robs.

Nope. You can have buildings robbed again and again, something about GREE's servers. First of all, you can get the $1 rob multiple times (and multiple people can get it). Go to a player off your newsfeed who left you a red link, rob their buildings, leave and come back. The rob icon will come up over varying empty buildings, and it seems split on whether you get the $1 rob or the "This player is to beat up!" error.

Secondly, in one of the PvPs, I had a few of my buildings that I left robbed get robbed multiple times. I have a large number of trash buildings, which are helpful to others in the PvP, but during this one particular PvP I kept getting robbed by someone other than the people I was willing to trade robs with (I would have traded robs with this person had they asked, but they did their best to keep all their buildings promptly collected). So to spite them, once they had robbed a building, I left it robbed. So at this point in the PvP, my only unrobbed buildings were my high IPH earners and my laundromats that I was trading. I get a notification on my newsfeed that "You lost $28200!" which prompted me to immediately return to my hood (in retrospect, this is far too low of a total to be one of my LTBs, NCs, etc, but it was higher than the couple thousand I would normally lose from a crappy building being robbed). I get back to my hood, and everything is how I left it. I messaged the person to ask what building(s) they robbed, and they had apparently re-robbed my crappy 6-hours.

Thirdly, an unrelated rob glitch that has been bugging me recently (and I know I'm not the only one), but I have had a few of my big buildings robbed literally hours before they came up for collection. I have my 6, 12, 24, and 48hrs on a timer, and very rarely am I late in collecting them, and I have my 24/48s at a time when I know I will always be able to collect them (i.e. right before I go to bed). I got a notification that I was robbed of $8mil, and I was exactly half-way in between NC collections, so it was a time when I would never have a big building come up for collection. Unfortunately I had just purchased an LTB upgrade a few hours prior (and I'm also no-banking a large amount), so I couldn't tell whether or not I retroactively lost $8mil after the rob notification. The person who robbed my ghost money couldn't recall what buildings they robbed, but I suspect they were a strange mix of 24/48s (I had never seen the exact $8mil figure before), which I would never miss, so I really have no idea what happened. But I've heard of others with the same problem, being robbed long before their buildings come up for collection.

Last PvP it happened to me a couple of times that I could rob a laundromat 4 times. Never happened before.

You can rob level 1 LMs four times.

Normally I can only rob them 3 times. 4 times only happened a couple of times to me.

Is the position perhaps different where someone has been banned then? Some time ago when on about level 50ish, I came across a hood with 2 level 10 night clubs amongst other things. Naturally, I'd visit this hood over and over in the hope that the night clubs would be available to rob. They never were - neither was any other building right down to their laundrettes. I find it difficult to believe that this player was able to have a perfect collection record, being around every 10 minutes of the day to collect laundrettes.

Robbed buildings never reload until they're collected.

Personal experience says otherwise.

Two explanations: 1) you're mistaken, 2) you're lying. Robbed buildings do not reload unless they're collected. Easy test... Let yourself get 100% robbed and wait a week or a month. See if your buildings reload. See if they get robbed again.

Yeah, okay Dipstik, I must be lying. I literally just explained that I experienced this during the PvP, when I left all of my ****ty buildings robbed only to have them get re-robbed a day or so later.

Actually that was only one explanation. I'm also open to the idea that you're mistaken. That doesn't happen.

It's happened to me twice, I don't collect my 8s ever and they got re robbed after I did the update that introduced syndicates. It also happened when support upgraded my frosty hideout and haunted mansion (which were sitting there already robbed) for me as compensation for a bonus program wait time. They got robbed again even though I didn't collect them.

I'm guessing both of these involve server side data resets. Also, say it ain't so, euch! All this time I've never considered bandito's iph legitimate after he whined to get his nightclubs upgraded... You too?

I didn't know you could complain about something unrelated and get your buildings upgraded. Gree is ridiculous. I guess I'm the most naive player here to not know this stuff.

I didn't ask for it they just gave it to me, I was just happy to get my bonus.

Delete your worthless defense buildings and you'll be loaded with space. If that's not enough, delete your worthless low-end money buildings.

If that fails then you haven't expanded your hood, and your complaint is absurd.

depends on how many syndicates there are, if there's 40,000 syndicates then a top 400 is in the top 1%
