haha yeah, just saw that...
The Top 250 and down are obviously meant for the mostly free playing syndicates. (I don't expect my syn to spend more gold for Top 150; we're usually just above 200 with excellent participation.)

Oh well, at least those of us in lower ranking syndicates still have RB for stat gains... or EB if not L250.

I wonder what the indy & streak rewards look like.
Happy War Day! We'll find out soon!

I like this. I've been looking for a good reason not to care about the monthly battles. Top 50 can keep chasing the dream... I'll wait for boss events.

I think I'll hang back and try to get between 17001-18000 on the individual rank to get the 13% armor defense...

What boss event? The epic that we can't finish? Or the raid that we can't finish?

You and your team must be ultra weak if you can't finish either. I know top 400 synds finishing RB

I still get far better stuff without finishing than I do from the syndicate battles.

I seriously doubt this. heh, maybe with lots of help but not on their own.
I bet you can't list 5 Top 400 syndicates that finished this last RB.
(Challenge to prove me wrong.)

If too many Top 400 syns finish the RB, GREE will make them harder. Thanks!

Just ignore him. Last raid was pretty insane. I know lots of top 100 teams that couldn't finish.

BTW, don't know how many of you got this, but some people (me included) had an update on google store that brought something we've been asking for for 3 years: inventory sorted by dmg or abc.

That's cool Nightleg. Wonder if iOS got that (or will get that)?

We have been fast approaching Top 250 and now the rewards have been replaced with junk! I buy a bank of gold every battle just to make my individual stats look solid.

At this point, our crew is fine just finishing in the Top 1000.

Apparently Gree's goal is to continue letting Vault spenders spiral up the leaderboard and leave everyone else behind.

RB event HP increase is ridiculous. Requiring more and more jumpers just to try to compete.

I spend on the gold mainly to help my syndicate out, think my strategy is going to change. If the HP keeps going up for everything and my toon can't keep up without abandoning everything else.

Edit: Perspective - Top 300 syndicate, Lvl 250 and 110m attack

Gree stat inflation was a losing proposition. Not many accts switched to gold so now they are squeezing what they can from gold players and getting them to spend more. Trying to widen a very small gap between gold players and free players to 'encourage' players to go gold.

So another train wreck coming. Gold players experiencing fatigue will grow and free/tapjoy players probably won't find reason to pay.

CC is better when everybody spends gold. Its better to ride first class than coach, front row seats vs nose bleed seats. Come on people sacrifice all your junk food and buy some gold.

Based on facing 1-50 current leaderboard teams several syns don't have RB weapon or players that must have jumped after RB killed their old lower ranking syn. Guy's FOS.

Might be cool to start posting threads of syndicates who finish events/streaks... Out of curiosity, for bragging rights and a bump for recruiting.

If everyone rides first class it just becomes the new cattle class, and the people there at the start demand a new exclusive first. ;)

If Gree want a wider use of gold they'd have to give far better value for money than at present. The most popular purchase is 240 gold, which in war would give nine refills (3 per day). Make a refill cost 10 gold and maybe some of the non-buyers could be persuaded to dip their toe in the water. I don't think it would reduce gold use at the top; maybe top three apart.... there's only so many times you can hit that refill button each hour, lol

ive always felt wars were a waste of time for teams 250 and worst. an entire weekend for weak items.

I never said tey finish without with help! I said they finish... By having dedicated leaders who join a syndicate help room where plenty of players are willing to jump to each other to hit bosses!
Pretty sure I can easily name 5 synds who finished within top 400... Let's see

i only bother for the individual stuff , my one man syn is usually 3000ish ranked which isnt worth bothering about , individually im about 18000ish which this time round is +13% armour defence

Same with my syndicate, but we always finish top 250 or just out of it with minimal gold spendage, and that gold is mostly meant for our invididual prizes. This war, with the even ****tier prizes for whatever is going through GREE minds, we're just out of the top 400 because my syndicate is not even trying. Last war I finished top 1400 individual, I dropped down to the top 15k this current. GREE is just making gold spendage undesirable for some reason, shouldn't they be doing the exact opposite?
