Not trying to start a conspiracy theory, but considering all the glitches, there has to come a time where you reach the point of diminishing returns. As a business owner, it is something I would think about and it just popped in my head. This may have been discussed before and if so, I apologize for bringing it up again.

I would say none. They are making money hand over fist.

However, I do see someone coming out with something new and better and most the fan base jumping to that game.

You must not have noticed the scores of the top 10 in Colombia. That's real money brother.

The better question might be, have they already abandoned it....

I can tell you that we are working hard at making improvements in the game. This includes new features and squashing bugs.

So after world domination and all territories owned by PUN would a planetary version be considered? Hey if the gree employees didn't play for a WD event or not hand out the bonuses would the top 10 change?

Considering the girl at Taco Bell noticed someone playing the same game in the drive thru before me= none.

There are already duplicate games by Gree for MW and KA. Obvious successors. Virtually the same games with the same themes and mechanics but packed with more features.

I won't give their names or they'll be a mass exodus.

Gree wouldn't nuke the game instantaneously. At the very least, they'll give a few weeks notice before terminating the service entirely.

Also likely severely reducing the cost of gold (by 75% or more) for that period of time in order to squeeze a little more cash out of players.

If players are served with a notice of service termination, I don't think even the most compulsive players would buy gold.

You'd be surprised. It's been done in other games that were being terminated and players have and it's not like GREE would lose anything even if people didn't.

Well that just goes to show how prudent and rational those players are. Buy into something that the owners have shown intention to shut down. Very bright of them!

i think the game is still growing. and they earn more with each new player. why should they terminate it? even if lots of players jumped off there'd still be enough to earn money on. it's much harder to create a new game earning money than to let a not so successful anymore game running.

Hiyas Folks,

We are taking in everyone's feedback here on the forums and as well in support regarding the game. We take this seriously hands down. All I ask is that everyone provide constructive feedback and concerns.

I agree, would be even better when they keep the activity level high and come with a good solution for the dissapointment surrounding the prestige mode. I would hate to see a guy like Devin getting demotivated to beat the prestige.

I highly doubt Gree would outright kill the game unless it is taking up huge server resources but winding down development and putting into maintenance mode, for sure.

In terms of improvements I think we are pretty much seeing where things are going, wouldn't say it's all bad but I think in terms of really major changes not likely. More likely to be refinements that are going trickle down from newer titles instead such as name changing ability and cosmetic fixes.

Internal communications and communications in general seem to be the one area still requiring the most work, granted I suspect Gree wiping out the SF work force sure did not help things.

Can you please provide factions with league tables which show donations and member activity. And option Faction Alerts.
Oh and the ability to remove players during wars.
Shorter wars.
Make all bonuses actually work and stack.

And have maybe a one month LE sale where every LE building is available?

I got a notification of he anniversary centre apparently 3 weeks after it was out and I failed to buy it but hit everyone since which was a shame.

Limited edition buildings also really discourages players from joining the game, its an aspect they will never catch up on, longer serving players will always be able to had a much bigger iph than new players can and this means bigger armies (which now cash units no longer make it into my army with all bonus units and valor units, maybe in tease max ally count to 2500-3000?)

Seriously? Lol, with all the wallet warriors here they are virtually printing money....abandon a cash cow like their customer base? That's a very silly question :-). The beauty is as long as they dangle pixelated carrots for these people and cater to their internet egos then doesn't matter how many glitches the game has. At worst they will complain with one finer and keep making deposits with the other !!!

Haven't seen the ability to upgrade multiple vp buildings since the first event. Would be nice to have that as an award for say the top 10 or 25. Gree players don't need those anyway.. Instead of 3 buildings two would be nice.

You want to try that again, this time in a way that makes sense and is understandable to us lowest common denominators :-)

Many of us "old" players paid good money for gold units that now have no value...that is stealing...
donate? this is not a charity...this is a dishonest corporation extorting every dollar they can...are you
people too rich to care or too stupid to know any better?

That's pretty standard depreciation over time.
It's the same principal as you going out and buying a brand new top of the line car today. A year from now its value will have decreased considerably and it isn't likely to be the top of the line any longer.

Maybe there is hope ... CJ would have never posted like this ... He would life ban you or at minimum, ignore .... Perhaps there is hope and looks like CJ's departure might be for the better ... Thumbs up so far .... But the timer is running Gree ... Time to step up... Hackers are the biggest issue of me. Why do I still see players and factions active that are known hackers and beyond doubt??????
