Sooo tired of this crap. Anyone else experiencing it?

Hits taking 5+ min. Posting scout reports to synd forum hardlocked & froze my phone. Galaxy S4... totally capable.
(Edit: Yes, I'm connected to wifi)

GREE are your servers on fire already?

Yep... Most my synd is locked out(can't see anything else than the declare button) we have already pushed that button and got paires but 90% of the team can't see or their game get crashed. Sended a tickets with whats most of my guys see jerle.

There is some unusually high latency, we're investigating that now.

how about score registering improperly - syn showing having 958 pts, same for 4 wins, but score vs another syn showing just 411 - half hits didn't count?!?...

This is something that is of 'standard' now for GREEd ridden games, i suppose?... Oh i so wish i could buy more gold... [sarcasm for those not catching drift]

Because this game is dying and only complete nincompoops choose to spend any real $ on it, they switched to PIII servers that use proprietory Celeron processors, so just be patient and buy more gold

We started a war, now no one can actually get into fight! Does this have to happen every single war? It is becoming very old hat and making more and more of us think why should we ruin a weekend when gree can not supply a decent standard of service to their customers! Come on guys, war weekend is not a new event, you should have wars down pat by now! Balls ups on new events is one thing, but on an event you are running every 3 or 4 weeks is becoming totally unacceptable!

It's impressively (bad) that GREE can't pull off one of these events without issue. I still doubt that the attack times have improved. I'll spend more time waiting for my hit to register than I will actually "playing" the game.

It's easy to do the math though.

Assume that every hit they do is about 500 points. Then 4 hits is about 2000 points.
Deduct about 5-10 million (for regular energy regen, granted they probably didn't use much of that and just refreshed with gold, but deduct this just in case) and lets just say both teams scored about 75 million in IP

75,000,000 / 2000 = 37,500 refill
37,500 * 25gold/refill = 937,500 gold

lets just say they bought their gold for $80 for 1500 gold
937,500/1500 = 625
625 * $80 = $50,000 / team

So about $100,000 total just from LO and SAS together. This is a lowball figure. They probably spent more in reality. So i don't think the $125k estimate is much off from the real figure
