I was one of your best customers. Spent money across all your platforms. Stopped once you changed bonus program.

Now you consistently offer useless prizes to your best customers in Crime City. I do not understand your business model and I am taking my business elsewhere.

I have handed the keys to FIGHT CLUB over. I can no longer ask them to spend gold for nothing.

Our players have tremendous pride and will win whenever they choose but I assure you their patience with horrible #1 prizes is rapidly wearing out.

Tread carefully from here Gree. FIGHT CLUB has nothing left to prove.
Give them something to play for and they will. Continue like this and they will find something else to do.

Goodbye Crime City. I enjoyed my time here.

I'm not trolling... The only way to beat the game is quit

Congratulation on winning first place both in-game and in RL (beating the addiction). I don't know you, but imagine the addiction is only stronger the higher up you played it.

I predict that a few weeks after being gone you will get a strong sense of relief. There will be some withdrawal but you will be better off on the other side. Go do something sensible with the money you save, like a lease on a new Porsche.


Side note: I could use a wall hitter in Project Phoenix - have you found someone to take over your account? ;)

on one hand i agres with you. first place should have the best prize. but think of it from grees perspective... you have already proven that fight club will overpay for first regardless of the prize. so why make it anything good? make it the top ten prize and watch 12 teams overpay for it.

Elastic Earl
08-27-2013, 11:14 PM
Montecore is correct. First place was always my goal. Pride dominated over prudence. The end of that has arrived. I will no longer be there with unlimited gold. If things change they know how to contact me. Have fun everyone! It is certainly one of the most entertaining games on the Internet.

Your move Gree

Although your 60 players financial totals are tremendous., it does not equate to the one thousand syndicates who combined monetary efforts dwarf the revenue ur team generates. Unfortunately this has become a democracy and lobbying from high revenue generating teams and has weighed to heavy a toll on the opinions and direction from gree. Just like a terrorist cell if u cut the head off of a snake more will be bound to follow and I agree with SA regarding the top 10 or if I may lobby the entire top 25 would over pay given the chance to actually compete. Your dominence is proven and although it may be unfair as a business in gaming more revenue and more importantly more excitement will be derived from the opportunity for a well rounded playing field even if it is at your demize and the loss of there so called best client. I as a businessman prefer not all my eggs in one basket for the sake of diversity and longengevity. With respect FightClub you have my admiration for the egregious sum of money you all have spent as I to have spent thousands but whats the point in a game if you always win. A wise proverb says that quiting while your ahead is not quiting and winning is the worst motivation. Respectfully Gladiator. . What we do in this life echoes thru eternity

Gree can get away with garbage 1st prizes because they know the desire to be first (and apparently "best") is more important to some egos than any other factor.

Don't feel too bad. I did the irresponsible thing and introduced CC to my bro-in-law and sister a month ago. They are now both in syndicates and buying gold. They just had a kid that will need to appreciate the nutritional value of Ramen noodles for the first 10 years of his life, "assuming he can get a job delikvering newspapers then".

GREE says, "Goodbye, .0000001% of our annual revenue. We don't bargain with our customers"

In all seriousness though, I was appalled to see such a crap modifier for #1 and I'm nowhere near being in contention for it. Hell, I'm T250 and wouldn't want it.. Payouts for jobs will suck with or without that additional 30%

I should add.. One thing you don't seem to be considering, CERBERUS, is that you're getting all of the modifiers for the main event. Yea, this cycle may blow for #1 but you're still gonna get a hella stat boost considering your stats are probably already ludicrously amazing. I mean what more do you need? A single item with 100k atk/def?

+10% mafia atk
+10% gun atk
+3% car atk
+3% armor atk

Tell me that's not going to amount to at least a 75k atk boost. Pshh probably more cuz you guys are CC gods

08-28-2013, 02:29 AM
i'll tell what the problem is - the better the 1st place prize, the more it ensures you will win 1st place next time also.
gree has got into a loop - they have thousands of players (potential customers) that won't pay because they know FC or any other top team will win the next event... it is frustrating.

Rebels
08-28-2013, 02:55 AM
Sad to see someone at the top of the game get frustrated and have to leave.

Although I do wonder if the prizes have anything to do with it. With all the gold spent in battle you could have purchased a whole lot of limited weapons and had 10 x the stats.

Surely 1st place no matter the prize is the main incentive to win. I am struggling to see the prize for the amount of gold can upset someone so much when they have other option to get stronger.

Sure there is the 'doing it for your team and fellow members. But no one is forcing anyone to spend real money. The addiction is the driving factor and the challenge to be the best.

Good luck with the retirement hope you don't miss the game too much.

Congrats on winning the game.

Not true at all, wars are actually the best bang for your buck (next to pvp), I gained 200k stats for 11k gold spent. Thats close to a 20:1 ratio. I dont get that with any other event out there other than PVP (better ratio for individual prizes and top team placement, but a lot of time spent getting them) but if you are not level 250 you gain a lot of levels.

I love how this is a thread about a well known player leaving and that's all you can say. SMH why do you have a forum account so you can troll Monte? Please start by writing something productive for once. Come on.... just once.

Your memory is spot on. Not only didn't they want any part of the attempt to get GREE to alter the course, they went on the forums and publicly criticized the effort, and promised to continue chasing 1st no matter the cost.

How could you walk out on that wonderful mod for top spot? Thats insane I mean cmon 10thou for a 30% increase on job payout!! You would be crazy to pass that offer. You'll miss out on all the glitches too. The ones all the players paid for. And the awesome in game leaderboard for battles. The one that makes it even funner cause you get to guess the bottom members performance. Its like two games for the price of one. Youll miss the pvp even. With the flawless leaderboard and no prizes with a mod makes it that much more exciting. Youll miss the 7 day delay on them reolying to your tickets if you had to send them one. Its a game of patience and if youf lucky and lost bars you may score big and get reimbursed exactly after buying more. Game if economics too. Your gonna leave all that? Just get through this one cause rumor has it the next mod is a buy 1 melee tennis racket get 1 free!! Everyone spends money whether its 10thou or 1hundy . We are the players. Its grees game but whats a game without players. And for all the veterans that have played since tge begining and have spent thousands already before syndicates.all to see a noob start last week and have stats we paid thousands to acheive. They get the ssme slice of cake. Gree is targeting the new players to pay and you cant argue the fact thst the veterans are bankrolling gree to..like cerb said. Sh## on us. But im just in top 100. My 300 a week doesnt count. Aint that right buttlover? Oops sorry buttfudger. Ahh sorry ill get it right one day

No, you're right. The public plays the game. However your point eludes me. But to us lesser players on CC are just as upset as the "cool guys". if u cant understand that without all of the players gree wouldnt be so lazy. I love the game. But find it a bit entertaining how cocky alot of players are as if they fight with blood and their hands. West champion cost me nothing. And im the last person to think less of anyone. We need to be the players and stick together.good example to help you understand is I sent a pm to a recruit in a top 3 team only to tell him his stats are admirable and it is a goal of mine to get as strong. He replied back with an insult. If top players think they are gangster cause of store bought strength they are dead wrong. Its moving quick with iron fist that knock a man off his high horse. Games are supposed to be fun to play. Maybe gree is responsible for removing that.maybe its half the players

When does your top 10 / 25 syndicate give your freeloading trolling self the boot? I guess the little ponies outweigh any real money you should be spending. With all the people quitting the only way you are getting closer to being the strongest player is on the backs of all your syndicate members carrying you to war prizes.

You may spend the most but GREE is very aware that your ability to run up a scoreboard or dominate an opponent doesn't begin to cover the loss from players that decline to compete with you. If Tam or FC took a leaderboard or battle off I'm fairly confident Gree would make more money.

Judging by the top prize Gree is actually telling you that you're the worst customers. I'm surprised a leader of FC is just realizing this?

Tam/FC have saved a lot of players a lot of money. I appreciate that and say thanks. Cheers on retirement.

You see each area in CC is dominated by FC? That's the pride you have paid for. You can choose to stay in top2/top3/top10 for one or more battles until you find something worthwhile, like +1 upgrade. If that's not an option, pay for your pride.

All egos aside, as others have stated you are hardly grees best customer so lets be honest with ourselves. You should've known thi would happen eventually, gree isn't ping to give the eat prize where there is no competition. Hopefully whoever takes the reigns in the next wars will be a bit smarter and actually give at least the illusion of competition then you'll actually see better prizes. I garuntee if someone else finished first then the next war #1 prize would immediately be better.

Word to the wise, choose your battles wisely. It's kind of ironic how FC strength and pride is their greatest weakness.

on a side note, if ever, some other team takes the #1 spot, i can bet, gree will continue its legacy of foolishness ..

you are already the strongest team and the team everyone support,
but everyone would see a war for 1st, how can you expect competitivity if 1st prize is a stats boost you dont need??
barely rogues and sas can hit your members, what if gree keeps giving FC huge prizes?
u want win easier than this? dont you prefer a win after a struggling battle?
thats my opinion :) and im absolutly NOT a FC hater, otherwise its my fav team but would like to see a real war for 1st
cheers then, good luck every choice u make, u wrote the history of this game leading FIGHT CLUB!!!

Although it is very tempting to address the haters and ignorant responders on this thread, I will refrain from doing so. Elastic Earl (in game Cerberus) is one the coolest people most of you will ever meet. He lead from the front. He communicated strategies and cared about everyone he interacted with. He helped a lot of players with in game issues as well as rea life issues. I hear of other teams where one of the leaders rides someone else's coat tail, Cerb was always a top 10 scorer and steadily built his stats. He quite likely had the top 5-10 stats in the game. Imagine being consistently top 10 in a syndicate with 60 of the strongest players in the game. Quite an accomplishment! With Cerb, it was always do as I do, not do as I say. Your legacy will live on. I know you are a success in real life so that will continue, no doubt. Cerb is a hero of crime city and as such, deserves the respect. Big up big man!!!

on a side note, if ever, some other team takes the #1 spot, i can bet, gree will continue its legacy of foolishness ..

Are you serious? You call this competition? No one is challenging FC, they're just patiently waiting for the inevitable implosion so they can pick up the remnants.

imo, Gree's best customers are the ones who regularly spend smaller amounts of money. not the ones who spend a large sum once in a great while and then ride on their bonuses.

They get the bonus every month. Thousands of dollars. Every. Month. This argument is a pipe dream that the multitudes of "little guys" invent in order to inflate their own sense of importance. It shows up in other areas of life, too.

I think you're confusing me with GREE. If it were my decision I would say "Give the fools their Tartar Sauce"....or a Blingmobile each. In the background I'd change the scoring algorithm so that players with 50% less atk can beat them. Everybody wins!

Sorry..I misunderstood you as one the many on here that says it's a good business model to piss off your best customers...

I would love to share this with all who know the meaning of respect. I am no top spender and no top rank holder I am native indian. I came across a member of a team they call indian nation. I noticed the member mentioning comments of his teepee smelling like a new car. I made the mistake thinking this member was a native and with both his name and teepee comment I made an attempt to befriend this individual. I favored this team that I believed was true to tribal culture. This member returns with insults and I then told my uncle and tribe leader Redbird of the Barona tribe. I found that this indian nation they say is no tribe or even in the slightest bit native. To find out my heritage was being thrown around as a tool or representation of the indian nation was not only degrading my culture but even claiming to trademark my culture and heritage as if it were a name found on a box of cereal. His insults made many indian tribes very upset. To tm a heritage that was nearly wiped to extinction like a rabid coyote by an individual of Caucasian decent opens the wound. To attach his homosexual name to a culture with strong beliefs in reproduction to save our race. To joke about the housing we shared when it is likely his decendents burned them. To ssy the least this debauchery of my tribe and fellow tribes will not allow such insult. My uncle is 68 years of age and shed tears when he insisted to speak to this disrespectful and ignorant creature. I would like to share the pm with all of you and please note my uncle simply asked for answers, completely explained who he is.can hardly speak or type. Im sharing this to let this so called nation of trademarked indiansthat this is only the very first step in a process of what all members included will pay for. This will be the beginning of your end.

Please excuse young sika he was only trying to befriend a fellow indian blood.Barona tribe Indian chief would like to know what tribe you are. Being young sika come to you with respect and offer friendship to be made a mockery is no tribe we know. You must be a tribe with the tm attached?. For your sake andfinancial future I suggest you speak with Chief Redbird. The Indian nation does not take likely to mockery and insult . To use our name in games with trademark is insulting our people. To attach homosexual slang as your names is disgrace. Your teepee comment refering to an item to be driven is insulting. We once had no shelter and did not choose to live in teepees. We were slaughtered like boar and refuse to allow our heritage be represented by by tribes like you. Young sika say you may not be indian. That is very insulting. I find wher you camp. We can have nice visit. First chief have meeting and discuss your insulting tribe. But must know what tribe. Finding our own get more expensive. Chief not happy thentl:drPlease learn proper sentence structure and try to have an intellegant conversation.

This is a game and business of math.. lets break it down for the big and little guys. Top 1000 syndicates spend money all the way to number one fight club. . So thats 60,000 players ballparking it for the math..
Top 1, 2, 3 60 players = 180 players spending avg 1k+ a battle 180k
Top 4-10 x 60 players = 420 players spending avg 300 $ a battle 126k
Top 11-25 x 60 players = 1500 players spending avg 100 $ a battle 150k
Top 26-150 x 60 players = 7500 players spending avg 50 $ a battle 375k
Top 151-1000 x 60 players = 51000 players spending avg 20 $ a battle 1.02 mil...
And that is exponentially raised with ltqs bosses case pvp etc..
Chalk one up for the little guys..go back to riding ponies or if that doesnt satify u ive got a horse c*** u can ride. Its alright to be a little guy even if im not one..
It is in the best interests for the future of c.c. to break up monopolies. . Just like american ganster with denzel Washington there must be order. By the way if you argue with math you loose. (Einstein)

this game from day 1 is all about money .. syndicates just spiced the deal .. nobody is stopping you from buying 100 vaults repeatedly in a month .. spend money, take bonuses, go tap tap tap the fight button .. who is stopping you from doing that? and if you can't, then shhhh .. so your solution is that gree should begin giving nuts to the biggest spenders of the game?

i call it a competition .. indiots tried hard to get on the fight club .. then SAS has been trying pretty good to take on the fight club. rogues are in the line to push things up.

have you played modern war? pirates and the emperor have been fighting since ages and have u seen how much IP is raised in modernwar?

You can't seriously think the Indians or SAS past attemps to "push" you is real competition? If that's the case then you've truly become disensitized, top9-12, top24-27, that's where the real competition is in this game. Having a sense of fear that any minute you could be overtaken and all that money and hard work would be for nothing and the only way to secure the money you spent is to spend even more and more. Regardless of whether your able to understand this or not is irrelavent because gree understands this and acts on it. Just because FC ha 60 people that spend more than any other group of 60 people doesn't mean they can even come close to outspending 600

You need to consider bonus gold which I think every player in FC is using. Roughly works out to be between $300-$400 per battle per player.

If you want to party with FC your best bet is to buy 25 vaults at the 20% off price to hit the $2K monthly gold tier bonus. Once the bonus gets paid that will leave you with a total 87,500 gold. That should get you about 5-6 battles.

The smarter move (if you're going to spend that amount $$) would be to join SAS because you can probably get in a couple more battles and the only thing you're missing out on is 30% more wall damage or job payouts.

Although it is very tempting to address the haters and ignorant responders on this thread, I will refrain from doing so. Elastic Earl (in game Cerberus) is one the coolest people most of you will ever meet. He lead from the front. He communicated strategies and cared about everyone he interacted with. He helped a lot of players with in game issues as well as rea life issues. I hear of other teams where one of the leaders rides someone else's coat tail, Cerb was always a top 10 scorer and steadily built his stats. He quite likely had the top 5-10 stats in the game. Imagine being consistently top 10 in a syndicate with 60 of the strongest players in the game. Quite an accomplishment! With Cerb, it was always do as I do, not do as I say. Your legacy will live on. I know you are a success in real life so that will continue, no doubt. Cerb is a hero of crime city and as such, deserves the respect. Big up big man!!!

There can be no higher praise for a leader than what dr007 has said here.

Cerberus, I was and never will be strong enough in game to even lace your boots. My family and I have taken some awesome beatings from you and your friends in Fight Club and hold you all in high regard.

To see your god like CC reputation humanised and made meaningful to all us mere mortals here in the lower echelons of the game only serves to amplify the massive contribution you have made to this game and ALL of its players

I'm sure he's highly respected and deservedly so within his own team, but I wondered why the sycophancy expressed by you on others' behalf. If you're going to be an unelected spokesperson, then you should be able to justify it.

I was genuinely curious. His forum name is not one that I recognise so he's not been dispensing his wisdom to everyone on here like, say, BigMoney does, which IS of benefit to "ALL players".
