So you improved SA, but in the same cycle


You Robbed players of real money
You made RB pointless
7 day war after this?!


My real question is are you trying to ruin your own business, or are there people telling you that people will spend no matter what.....

If you dont see a decrease in revenue I will be shocked - With the amount of refunds that are being handed out i wouldn't be surprised if you owe apple and google money instead of receiving it.

I am not sure why I wrote this, falling on death ears....

Japanese mobile gaming giant Gree reported dismal results for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2015 today, writing off JPY 7.6 billion (US$65 million) in net losses. It’s Gree’s second net loss as a public company, after landing JPY 311 million (US$2.6 million) in the red during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013. The firm listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange in 2008.

Trust me they'really talking a loss...GREE sell the game to me please I have a background in mobile development (java, html5, xml, MYsql) or hire me I have an IQ higher then most of your monkeys but I guess that makes me over qualified then lol

If you sell me the game I get a discount For the $12,465 I spent right?

Gree had an extraordinary loss of 11.69 billion (that's $99 million) so yes, they're hurting - 2nd quarter report 2015 (http://v4.eir-parts.net/DocumentTemp/20150217_052325798_iln04z55a2yeyiiv0umpuxyg_0.pdf) - coming on top of declining sales.

For Crime City, some very short-sighted decisions designed to suck money out of 'top players' have come home to roost as those players have become over mighty compared to all others. How many of them even do LTQs now? Would they get any meaningful stats boost for their gold if they did (even more so now modifiers have been removed). How many regular players do LTQs now when you can't even complete normal without gold and the prize for doing so is a joke really.

Raid Boss health hike presents an opportunity for the top teams to send a clear message to Gree. Come to an agreement to stop at a given point so no team gains an advantage over the others, and then send a joint letter to Gree telling them they have agreed to stop playing the event because the hike has destroyed any fun for the vast majority of the player base and do Gree really expect the biggest spenders to bankroll them to reduce their financial losses this quarter.

He didn't brag about his IQ, he said it was higher than most of the Gree Monkey's IQ's.

That basically makes it above 70 which is still classed as well below average.

In 2014 Gree had a net income of 146.1m USD (compared 189.6 in 2013 and 403.9 in 2012).
Quarterly, they started losing during Q2 of the 2014 fiscal year, with -64.4m USD. Exclude the extraordinary loss, you'll get a pretty steady profit, even slightly increasing from quarter to quarter.

Well I said I’d never talk to you or your boyfriend again but I’m going to lie. I’m going to say something people say all the time to you, you just can’t comprehend it so you continue to aggravate and piss everyone off, you and your boyfriend goofy love to stir the pot and I’m not talking on this forum in every one you ever post in thus that name fits you :D YOU CAN’T TAKE A JOKE OR GET SARCASM even the simple kind.

But let me explain it to you on how to understand what I said so maybe I can crack some of those rocks floating around up there


Hire me I have an IQ higher than most of your monkeys but I guess that makes me over qualified then lol

If you sell me the game I get a discount For the $12,465 I spent right?


let’s start off with “Hire me I have an IQ higher than most of your monkeys” first off if I was applying for a job or if I really wanted a job with a company like gree I wouldn’t refer to my possible follow co-workers as “Monkeys” that's just stupid, let alone on my interview but you miss read that. Second Animals don’t use the IQ system so again what I said about having a higher IQ then a monkey was a joke, they use something called “Animal cognition” look it up. Thirdly I’m implying that the people who work for Gree aren’t intelligence to human standers and what they have been doing doesn’t seem smart.

Now to that part about me spending $12K+ “If you sell me the game I get a discount For the $12,465 I spent right?“ Again a joke witch was missed by some people anyway I was talking about the money Gree has lost at that time and to quote myself (again) so you understand this next part “writing off JPY 7.6 billion (US$65 million)” so yes I have spent $12,465 on the game it’s just that, that money is JPY and not USD so I’ll do the math its $104.53 USD haha XD

I just never told you that :)


You never say the right thing or know what you’re talking about half the time and I don’t know if you don’t realize it or not but you seem to spin people the wrong way you need to mature or try talking in a different way. I’m not trying to be a jerk or be mean it’s just that basically you’ve call me a stupid, a baby, a hack, and hacker witch by the way using a file explorer on an android device to clear data is a big hack so big you’ll do 4-6 years if you get caught (Sarcasm I’m joking) you’ve told me to enjoy my ban I’m still here but I know what you’re going to say “I never said some of that” and I’d say yes you did, words actually mean stuff to people like me so when you say stuff like “in the same post he tells us he spent $12k on crime city” that really means hey look who’s really stupid this guy witch if you read the post or could of heard my tone of voice when I said it you would of known what I meant. You can’t hear tone in text that’s what people miss all the time and sometimes it becomes offensive and irritating to people…its ok to admit your mistakes and let other people be cool for once without you jumping down their throats when they’re taking about how they feel and their frustrations (God Forbid someone do something like)and I’m just not talking to Dipstick here this is for everyone you don’t have to attack other people when all they want to do is say how they feel that’s why someone is always fighting in here. Why don’t you get out of your house and worry about the real problems like world hunger or our brave men and women dying overseas? Huh? What’d you say about that? Why don’t you Contact a Recruiter and join the military and fight a real war.

So, let me get this straight.
People spend some money to play this game. Some people pay a lot.
Gree in turn ups the ante so people will have to spend more money to complete their goals.
And these people comply and continue to spend?

The only way Gree will get the message is for EVERYONE to stop spending...duh.

Then why do you keep buying gold, as a group? Scream complete GOTCHA back at them, and play free and be free. Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose. Stop losing, every time you buy. Don't buy? How can you consume, if you don't buy? How about consuming for FREE, instead of for FEE? If you don't pay, some one will.

It isn't just the huge increase with the level 100. The lower level bosses saw a huge increase in health. Way larger than 150%.

It's also the much larger cost of uzis in RP. Now a level 5 costs 50,000 RP. Previously it cost 10,000 RP.

The whole event has amounted to joining the higher ranked syndicate jump rooms and laying down a QA. If that was the intention of the developers, they got it. As an active player I'd much prefer to stick with my syndicate and accomplish goals together.

One view would be that the majority of those who regularly visit this forum are some of the more dedicated players. They care enough to continue visiting, looking for updates, and engage with fellow players. And a lot of them are very articulate, as you pointed out.

When those people are "reducing to calling GREE and its staff names", this should be an alarm bell going off that Gree is not doing something right. It's not the player's/customer's responsibility to tell Gree HOW to fix things, or make things better, that's Gree's job. Players have been providing constructive feedback on the forum for over three years, and for just as long it has gone widely ignored or completely unnoticed.

Go figure that after being ignored, unnoticed, or otherwise dismissed, your most dedicated players reduce to calling Gree and its staff names. Gree doesn't answer to any of the actual constructive feedback, whether in writing on the forum or in action via game improvements. Want proof? There has been constructive feedback posted on this forum for years, and now Gree is posting a weekly feedback thread for people to post in. Positive gesture, but it does suggest that the rest of the forum is irrelevant for posting any sort of feedback.

You're feedback is very constructive, which is great and appreciated. As far as it going "both ways", I have to disagree a little bit. There are plenty of ways to get a point across (like you've just done) that doesn't include name calling and insults. I'm very hard pressed to find a company that actively responds to inquiries that are abusive in nature because a certain amount of civility is a reasonable request.


Maybe we could establish a group of players that could talk with you and developers monthly on kakao or line and discuss where the game is from a player standpoint?

Actually, Clem and I have something in the works that is very similar to this idea! Details will be coming soon!

Fair enough Relic. At least you are on here communicating. That is a positive step.

You know what they say - what goes around, comes around. I'm very hard pressed to find a company that has been doing the exact opposite of what their costumers want on a regular basis.

Indeed, what comes around does go around. However, Karma doesn't have to be insult-laden.

Now, let's get back on topic and not discuss what is acceptable language to use when addressing the forums.

Don't just react to 'insults'. As a community manager you are the spokesperson between the company and the customers. If you don't have information, make sure you talk with one of the developers to get that information. Enough said.

Back on topic, please. I'd hate to close this thread since it does provide some good information to the team.

Please remember that there are some pieces of information that can not be shared, even if we would like it to.

Why wouldn't it be shared? Look, we all know GREE is a business and we all know that businesses want to make money, but this game has switched from 'a little bit of gold and a lot of fun' to 'a lot of gold and a little bit of fun'. I hope the developers understand that.

I actually feel bad for you guys, cuz you have to reply to all this sh*t. I have the feeling that there are orders from above ('the big boss') and that the main goal of this game is to suck money out of the customers. You know, a lot of people are able and willing to pay for gold because this game is fun to play, but when events become so hard that nobody can beat it without massive amounts of gold, than people won't buy it because it is not worth it for what they're getting.

Not trying to be offensive here, but it's just the feeling that a lot of us have atm

Here's just one thought.
You announced over a week ago that accomplices and how they are used is changing.
We have no further news on that change a week later.
I'm still getting the splash screen.
I was so annoyed at the total lack of information that I asked Apple to look at the frankly fraudulent idea of accomplices and the encouragement to use gold to build them up.
They refunded the gold I used (a serious amount, my choice) because they agreed that the terms of sale and use of accomplices were reneged on.
Why make that change?
You are losing money.
You make ridiculous changes to the latest boss event. I have spent zero gold. My syn has stopped. We pride ourselves on finishing early and helping others.
If there are no worthwhile changes, explanations and announcements soon (and I don't mean in 4 weeks) people like me will find another game to play at another organisation. Then we'll tell everyone on groupme and line about a different game and you'll be even more out of pocket.
All because of some of the worst CRM skills I've ever encountered.

What are some examples of information that "can not" be shared? I assume you mean "will not" be shared, because "can not" implies a metaphysical impossibility whereas we all know that any information you "will not" share is simply due to company policy.
