Well, there it is, the first 100k item, as I predicted earlier this month: http://www.funzio.com/forum/showthread.php?68561-This-is-what-Crime-City-is-now

And it's 118,000 attack, no less!

*humblebrag*

But more than three months ahead of schedule! Based on new stat inflation estimates, I now predict we'll have a 250,000 stat item by the end of the year.

Just think, you could come along in late December as a first time player, drop a load of gold, win one item, and move farther ahead than most of us did in our first 18 months playing the game... Great to know the loyal players are being looked after.

On a positive note, I think actually seeing that splash screen, I've now spent my last gold in the game (bar TJ gold of course)... :rolleyes:

Gree messed up, there's no question about it

Stat inflation is good for business, but this is ridiculous!

Sweet Jesus I'm glad we don't have a 100k item available for free play, yet. I'm not sure what comes after hyperinflation.

You have underestimated the power of stat inflation. The recent boss event alone has allowed one of my syndicate members to achieve 450k attack at lvl 38 for FREE because he was tier 2. Me, on the other hand paid about a vault during Boss event to be at lvl 95 with 700k attack.

What was the point really in me dropping any gold? Sure, it was a good deal at the time for gold/stat ratio but it pales in comparison to the value lower levels can get and surpass me within a month if this continues.

I predict a chirstmas "event" will have a 500k item for complete it all the way. The only questions are, which kind of "event" will it be, and how many won´t get it?

Mind = blown!

There's two strategies it seems for keeping up with the stat race if you're an old player - 1. Empty your bank account, or 2. Buy new device and start over. Option 2 is likely to be the less costly. :p

I'm not sure what comes after hyperinflation.

this is what happens "you try and login but get a server error cannot connect and the game is over" shareholders grab there cash and go on holidays .. nothing lasts forever

the real problem of the game isn't items that have higher stats at every war but modifiers.
We are facing a modifiers inflation, this is what really boosts stats.
An item of 30k would only give you about 30k boost.. but eg with with my modifiers, a 30k car gives me 72K stats (car modifiers+ mafia modifiers)..
soon this same car (not another that i ll get from another event) will give me 100K, 200K etc because of new modifiers that i ll get
Stats are growing exponentially due to modifiers and not so much to item inflation

Very true. All these new super weapons are coming with 15-20% mods. Mod inflation is an unavoidable result of wars (as people continually accrue mods), but rapidly turning a 60-90% category mod (for top team, all-event completing player) into 150-200%, stacked with large mafia mods leads to astronomical inflation.

From a personal example, last war added about 500k to my stats, due to the beastly 10% mafia atk mod. The 2 big events then added a further 1.2m. I estimate tam will pick up over 500k from the current leaderboard event. At this rate the first player to cross 10m will soon add first to cross 100m to her record. I'd put the end of the year as a not-unrealistic timeframe for this to occur.

Mods should be made to expire after a fixed duration. A couple wars would be reasonable.

So your idea is to increase the amnesia-effect of stat inflation. Thus completely screwing any of the customers that Gree have that currently don't yet feel screwed over?

And I bet they will increase the level to 350 within a month or two and they will have a huge 500k or 1mil prize if you want to get there

Assault & Flattery will be getting worried of your opinion of her. The CJ one who claimed that battle extension was a non-retractible decision would be a better call on your sell-by date.

personally I find the stat inflation and mod inflation is removing the point from the game, its turning it into a contest of who can spend more and nothing else.
