I enjoy this game very much and enjoy the battles but it is not worth spending real money on, staying up all night on and dropping everything for. SO HOW ABOUT ALL OF YOU STOP TAKING IT TOO SERIOUSLY AND MAKE IT A FAIR FIGHT AGAIN WITH NO GOLD.

    Agreed...gree gifted everyone who either gave up on a tier or didn't try, except the ones who were up all night working their asses off. If it too much to ask to be bumped up a tier for finishing 5th when everyone else is getting bumped up?

    I dont agree with the statement we gave up on our tier... we were sitting 12th and 500k behind top 10 when gree extended the event 6 hours... thats the only reason we stopped pushing.. if the event ended at the new time more than half my team would have been sleeping. Whats the point of keeping the top 10 pace if nobody is around for the final push.. by the time gree changed the event time again we were too far back to to make up the differance

    However I think if extending the prizes back a few more spots was the plan a little bit more notice should have been given to prevent the gold rush at the end

    I understand where you're coming from Cluff, but the point is made that if we knew the cut off was 12, we would've made the push too. We stay between 11-13 every war and this war we slowed down drastically (even with 54/60 players) and we accepted the fate. Why are you alloted the top 10 when we were probably only 20k behind you? They allowed 20% increase in the tiers with no annoucement or even reasoning behind it...

    This was no different than stealing from us. What a complete joke. I wonder if they sat there laughing the entire time.

    Not top 10, but top 50. I feel your pain, just not as much of it as you top 10 folks. This is a slap in the face, they should have updated the tiers a day in advance so everyone knew and could adjust.

    Is this going to happen all the time now? Personally, I think they should refund the gold spent in the last day to all the teams that didn't get bumped up. We worked hard for top 50.. for it to become top 60 with no notice? We could have saved a ton of gold had we known that.

    Boo Gree! What were you thinking?

    Let's just face facts people. We are all really really stupid for spending large amounts of money on this game. What's it for? To stroke our egos in knowing we might some day be the strongest? So we can rob/attack anyone? Where's the fun in that when its that easy. I've spent my fair share on this game but at some point I sat down and asked myself why? Am I going to quit? Probably not.....I'm in too deep but I'm certainly taking the financial headache out of it.

    Gree did this for reasons other than some vague "player feedback." There was a profit aspect to it. Always follow the money. The only reason a company would ever screw that many customers is money! No rational game provider with this many players would change the rules at the last minute if fairness mattered to them. Here, Gree screwed the people who finished 4th - 10th, and those who it turns out needlessly spent money for gold push to make it to top 50, 75, 100, and the other tiers. The screw job also hurt the people whom gave up chasing next tier but would have kept fighting full blast had they known they were a lot closer to next tier than they thought.


    Their response has been so pathetic its obvious they know that most players who buy gold are to some degree addicted to the game and will continue to play and buy gold for a long time no matter how they are mistreated and disrespected.

    This is why monopolies are illegal in this country. Lol.

    Probably.. I didn't see the message from your rat until about 1 hour after he sent it to me. (we don't normally use Groupme). So when I saw it, I took what we had scored in the current battle and subtracted it from where we currently were. That gave me a number of about 20k-21k behind what you were at at that specific time. Hard to believe? Believe it, it's online!

    3 fubars, but i don't see how the last one had a 'profit aspect'.

    1. Extending by 6hrs
    - agree, there is a profit aspect here.

    2. Reverting back to orig time (pretty last minute without an ingame announcement)
    - knee jerk reaction after community outrage. no profiteering here.

    3. Change of Tiers
    - No profiteering by GREE here imo. The gold would have been spent either way anyway. I believe they really wanted to atone for the above fubars, but went about doing it without thinking it through.
