I guess the consensus is that crates are best to buy. This might be a stupid question but I don't often have any gold, when is it best to buy the crates? Right now I'm guessing they aren't appealing because the commons are so close to respect items and the rare items aren't that strong? I heard someone say last time that the last round of crates weren't great for boosting attack. Maybe the ones that had an explosive as a common item were best.
I don't know.
When is it that you buy crates?

You already have the dynamics understood. You noted that the commons are too close to RP items and the rares aren't that strong. So, at 10% for the rare drops, your left with 90% chance of getting something close to RP items.

Not a good batch at all.

P.S. Have you seen the new LE items yet? It has an explosive there at 125g. Something to consider.

When they are 45g for three. :D

Do you buy a lot of gold or is it mostly Tapjoy? I blew 300 Tapjoy and got a whopping six commons last time lol. I am now a bit scarred and am back up to 175g and deciding whether to save for a gents club or just blow it on crates again. I am waiting at least for a new set of crates to come out. Interested to see what the consensus is here.

Buy henchmen. They do not fear death.

How about the new limited explosive that just came out. Better attack then the Hellfire Missile and cheaper.

I use tapjoy. I have bought a couple of cheap games like Kick the Buddy, Kick the Buddy Independence day and Don't Run With A Plasma Sword (great game that I have spent hours on by the way, only cost 1.50) which had offerings of extra gold as well as installing and deleting free apps. Soo yeah, I really don't make that much gold. I've never purchased gold on the game itself.

the crates that are out now are not as good as the other crates but dont cost as much either.. carates seem to work best for me if I buy them in the early am hours when I should be sleeping... the best place to spend your gold would be to find another game that doesnt claim to be free but requires thousands of dollars to be competitive in.... or you could use some of it to open event safes I very much doubt you can buy anything for the amount the first five items would give you for stats

I would only spend your tapjoy gold on gold buildings. I think you'll get the best satisfaction from your Tapjoy gold. How long does it take for the Tapjoy to reset so you can get another gold bar. The reason i ask is i play Modern War and it's purely a camper account which i'm definitely not spending any gold on but it would make sense to collect as much Tapjoy gold as possible.

It's always worth keeping an eye on the limited items that are released. Items such as the armored state car (18 Attack & 46 Defense) are sometimes worth a shout. It all depends if you want to strengthen your attack or defense?

Put it this way, i don't think you'll ever get lucky enough to get 3 rares in a set of crates. I've done it a couple of times but it's cost me a vault of gold each time.

Gc or this explosive? What you think?

True regarding gold buildings, but the question then becomes what can you realistically buy with in game cash that is worth buying and will the income from say a GC really make that much of a difference?

*Edit*
Lvl 1 Gents Club - $396k/24hrs=
One Gas Grenade per a day plus some change.
or
One FBI Shield every four days.

I am sure there are other options but these seem to be the most likely uses of in game cash regarding equipment.

Good point! May as well spend it on a limited edition item then or keep buying 3 crates.

Can anyone tell me how long it takes for tapjoy to reset??

You should buy Goodfella if you don't have it already
