Before a mod moves this to Off-Topic, this subforum is for, and I quote, "Discuss(ing) anything related to Crime City Mobile." This forum is definitely related to Crime City Mobile.

I personally don't appreciate Grammar Nazi; however, the fact is that while he was here, no one started a new thread complaining the Limited Time Building was late. Nor, to my knowledge, did anyone complain about said Limited Time Building, any events going on at the moment, or any past events, save one or two posts about Street Assault individual prizes. Grammar Nazi took this forum and singlehandedly transformed it in just a matter of goes into an energetic, lively place where I, for one, had obscene amounts of fun.

I'm not saying the mods should let him stay, but I am suggesting that we be allowed to keep threads that go off-topic a bit. This will keep the forums fun, and foster a positive community on the forums. Let's be honest; if it wasn't for the puerile you've met, would you still be playing the game?

Let's make this forum fun again. Let's make Dippy a mod, regardless of whether he chooses to serve or not. Let's fix this forum.

Honestly I believe this forum to be useless. It's mostly trolls on here that like to treat each other with disrespect. As far as getting any real info your better off having a beta tester to leak the info on a chat app. Also I would like to say I'm not pointing the finger at any one person. I read and see what's posted in these forums not as much as I use to because of administration not answering people's questions when asked. Also it's not nice to keep people wondering when something will be released. But I know Gree has All Rights Reserved. Very much useless.

I do admit that it was definitely entertaining having the grammar nazi around. I think if he would've toned it down to under 50 corrections a day, it would've been more tolerated. I did actually log on to the forum more often than usual to see what he was commenting on. As for the forum being useless, I can't disagree more. I find it quite useful if you sift through the banter between the trolls on here. There have been plenty of helpful posts on here, but you do have to take the good with the bad. Dippy for forum mod!

As an avid observer, I had no qualms with a person aiding in grammatical corrections. However the pedantic nature of the corrections and the number of them were derailing the threads. This issues could have been taken off topic in a separate thread and discussed with those who wanted to listen. We must also remember that for many, English is not their first language, and as such, they may interpret these bombardments as personal attacks.

Can't agree. The pedantic nature was part of the humour, as was correcting the inevitable mistakes made by the Grammar Nazi.

As many have said, it was far more entertaining than the whining about the LTB. That will come; in the meantime just upgrade some others or build up your cash reserves (or both)

Some forums have an "ignore this user" function. Whether that's available as an (unused) option here who can say; perhaps it should be?

As for LTBs, they all seem to have identical upgrade times now. Costs should be easy to calculate from the formula for Type A and Type B buildings. After that, it's the old "if you have to ask the price, you can't afford it" thing! :)

I quite like the idea of an ignore user function that certainly has some merits ! Re the LTB`s , my main question isn`t to do with money its where is the current one ?

Pointing out flaws in game mechanics & broken events, especially when you are a gold spender and have a financial stake in the game, would IMO be considered constructive criticism.

Pointing out that you don't like the prizes in voluntary events, when you haven't spent one red cent on the game, well, that would be complaining. Complaining would be the polite term for being a MFing crybaby. Now do you really want me to pull out my search engine skills and highlight every time you posted about how unfair it was for the number 8 tier prize in your opinion, was worth more that the number 7 tier prize?

Here are some threads I have posted that were both constructive and whine-free. Feel free to go through my various other threads and post one about me complaining. Maybe you're right, and I am complaining in all of these threads.. but don't act like yours are any better.

I don't have to spend a red cent or even a shiny penny on this game, I can still over achieve in syndicate goals, and pull 60k in a battle, with the use of gold that I have earned from being active and scrolling through various offers from annoying companies like Tapjoy have to offer. How much ip did you pull last battle with the use of PAID gold?

One last thing, not to be a dlck, even though you seem not to care about that, but I've seen you complain about your stats not being the greatest, which is fine, it's a stupid game and I could care less about where people stand in it, but you seem to blame GREE's stat inflation since you're a L250 and have been playing the game for a long time. I understand (not from personal experience) the hardships of being a high level, but look where playing actively for free got me, and you playing with paid gold got you. It's your fault for not seizing the chance when stat inflation first started.

Would you like to throw anything else at me other than playing for free and starting a few threads that point out GREE's lack of common sense? Feel free to :D

You completely miss the point about the gold reference. FWIW, I spent gold in the early days on stuff like defense buildings that didn't work as advertised and were a complete scam. My stats do suck, but that is because I got out of spending early when I saw what a trap it was, and I don't spend enough time on the game to be in a syndicate. Those are my choices.

But that is not the point. I am not questioning whether you are a good player or not. The reference to not spending wasn't about your ability, it is about the value of your complaints. When you don't spend a nickel on the game, why the hell should Gree care about your "constructive criticism"? You are not a customer. You are not relevant. Gree doesn't and shouldn't care what you think about event prizes because all you do is cost them money. You use their forum bandwidth to complain about the prizes you aren't getting in their game bandwidth. You are a drag on their system.

To tell you the truth, many people complain about this game, but the only reason I commented on it with you was you posted repeated times in one week about tier prizes, and then when I called you out on it, you kept saying that every whine you has was constructive criticism, which is complete BS. It's a cop out. Own it, don't sugar coat it. You will get a lot farther in life.

And I don't have to pretend I whine less than you, I know I do. I really don't care what the prizes are, I don't even play most events in this game. What is there to whine about after all? Other than whiners, of course....LOL!

Anyway, done with this discussion, you just don't get it. It doesn't appear you ever will.
