Hello all,

We have a Syndicate LTQ launching tomorrow at noon Pacific time, and we just wanted to remind everyone to make sure they are on the current version of the app (and the current dataset, at noon) to participate in the event. Good luck, everyone!

Do we need to update on Android? I know everyone had that iOS update but I haven't seen anything for Android.


Edit: downloaded the latest Android update, and now my game crashes every ten minutes or so.

Edit 2: still crashing. Not really any rhyme or reason to it, crashed in the middle of me doing prehits, crashed in the middle of boss hits, crashed while I wasn't doing anything. Doesn't give the typical "Crime City has stopped responding" error, it just closes itself. Hopefully you're not doing anything important when the game crashes (e.g. you have 26 hp and need to get in two boss hits, etc).

Yeah, can't wait until they stack it on top of 4 other events too. Boss event, syndicate LTQ, throw in a PvP this weekend... I want to know why we aren't also having an individual LTQ, a case event, and a syndicate war also at the same time? We need more events. More. More. More.

LOL. Just give it a few minutes. My game has been crashing repeatedly since updating. Guess they didn't want us Android users to feel left out while all the iOS users had the bugs to themselves. :rolleyes:

Also you'll probably notice that when you hit someone, your stats don't match the stats on your profile.. Just started after this update. Profile stats are higher.

No crashes here but my looting proceeds are being counted twice (android v3.8). Steal $1000, cash on hand goes up $2000. I have to restart it to get my cash on hand showing the true value.

You don't have to do them if you don't want to.

This isn't a valid response to a complaint. This essentially amounts to "if you don't like something, just quit." Bad call by the referee in a football match? Don't object to the call, why don't you just quit playing football then. Don't understand your university lecture? Why don't you just drop out of university then. Have a disagreement with your coworker? Well why don't you just quit your job then.

Players have legitimate gripes to the way GREE is handling things, and your response basically amounts to "if you don't like it, leave." Most everyone would prefer to have their complaints be addressed than have to quit playing entirely.

My response seems a bit overblown here, but what I'm trying to say is that "if you don't like it, don't do it" isn't an adequate response to the complaint of too many events. A lot of players I know are burned out by so many events, and there's often a sense of obligation in having to participate in such events, either for yourself (e.g. don't participate in events and your stats are quickly irrelevant) or others (because even if you don't care if your stats get weaker, you feel an obligation to your syndicate mates to participate in syndicate wars, PvPs, or now syndicate LTQs). Instead of a minor fix (i.e. please stop running 5 events at the same time, GREE), you give him an all or nothing ultimatum. I disagree with that. It's in both GREE and the player's interest too prevent burning players out by throwing so many events at them (the players get more enjoyment out of the game, and GREE loses less customers to burnout). Same argument during the Chinatown war when GREE tried to start having a syndicate war practically event week.

I've feel kinda burnt out from time to time but I love the people in my syndicate they are the reason I've not quit. But the whole syndicate portion is what added so many events... Catch 22 there I guess.

08-30-2013, 01:58 AM
I agree with the conflict here. I'm a long time camper that is trying to decide to start fighting, but with these constant events, for the time I have to play aside from real life, I'd imagine I'd be kicked out of many syndicates for non-activity. Even if I get through one or two events can I justifiably be a part of? Nice if you can find the balance.

No, it's Gree's ever more desperate ways to extract money from players is why these events are run.

The leaderboard box events in KA have had a guild event tacked on for the last two. To win your guild has to find about 1500 items. It's patently obvious the raison d'Ítre is to increase gem (gold) sales, but players found that by moving from one guild to another took their items with them, so a trading network has sprung up. Player power for the moment defeats the corporate machine.

You nailed it BM!

So the recent update that resulted in my iOS hood being reduced to walking-thru-treacle mode has been fixed? (Bet it hasn't!)

Yum yum - can't wait for the new syndicate LTQ. No idea what it will be but once I get going I know I'd just love to have 10 of these this weekend and maybe another 5 a day next week for the rest of my life.

That'd be great.

... and to back up Chica n BM's points - here's my post from this morning.

Still no fix to the speed issue. And, surprise, surprise, not even a semi-reassuring "we're still working on it" message from anyone at Gree. This is a substandard to put it mildly.

Furthermore, what's with the name used for the latest Beat the Elite? Hyman Schwartz? Is this supposed to be funny, intelligent or witty? Are we all supposed to laugh at your ingenuity? I would if the game was working properly. But all you do is portray yourselves as moronic, naive snots - you also convey a double standard. Someone gets banned for using the word 'flatulence' and yet you throw out a curly pube that just says to us "hey guys, we dun give a rat's azz about you"... yeah, we're the idiots I know.

Gree - what's wrong with you?! If I ran my business like you run yours I'd be collecting unemployment benefits by now.Seems like you're going in that direction anyway judging by your financials over the last 4 quarters.

And you know what? If you went out of business... you'd be doing everyone here a great favour. You'd be missed for about 24 hours.

I used to love this game when it ran smoothly. And before the push for revenue pushed you to pushing out even more LTQ's. "Then don't do them" you say?... ah, we do them out of a sense of obligation to our teams - not because we love the volume or repetitiveness of them. That's the kind of nice, supportive, responsible people we are. Why don't you do the same for us?

You know what? CC's negatives are now outweighing the positives. You are falling apart and have been for some time now. I continued on the assumption that glitches would be fixed, servers turbo-boosted, communications increased and so on. What a Hyman I was to think this.

Help me out by banning me. I don't give a monkeys. Nor do you. I'll spend my money on ice creams.



I've feel kinda burnt out from time to time but I love the people in my syndicate they are the reason I've not quit. But the whole syndicate portion is what added so many events... Catch 22 there I guess.

I think people are jumping on the "too many events" bandwagon pretty prematurely here.

IF syndicate LTQ is a replacement for PvP, so that the weekends go War, PvP, Synd LTQ I think that would be an enormous improvement. PvP is a phenomenal time sink, whereas LTQs can be done at a leisurely pace if one so chooses.

Personally I enjoy the event-stacking, but I can see how it can burn out many if one had to juggle multiple concurrent events. But PvP 2 weeks out of 3 with war on the 3rd is just insane.

I agree, I certainly hope the syndicate LTQ is a replacement for PvP, although the boss event will be going through the syndicate LTQ/PvP/whatever it is that's coming up. But I agree, I already burned out on PvPs after going really hard for the first two, and now I'm just limping along in them simply out of obligation to my syndicate.

Why are telling everyone to update when the update is broken (iOS) ??????

Shouldn't you concentrate on fixing the game before launching a new event ?????

Are you continuing to fix the update, we haven't heard anything for a while now.

I do LTQs at what you might call a leisurely pace. Use up energy; wait for sufficient refill to continue. Doing them free as I now am, I can't even reach the halfway point because the energy demands get so insane. In fact I usually quit a day ahead of the end rather than gain large xp in exchange for an amount of petty cash or some respect. Obviously I'm not expecting to claim the grand prize as a free player, but it would be nice to not be so obviously regarded with contempt.

As for this new LTQ, judging by what has been said about the latest "upgrade" (what is that German expression for the improvement that makes things worse?) I shall be delighted to forego the pleasures.

You have to download updates through the Google Play store. Datasets, which are pushed on you, don't require you to manually update.

I don't recommend downloading the new update though, it's very clearly broken and going to cost me in missed boss hits because the game crashes every two minutes, PvP is impossible (can get 3-4 robs in before it crashes, and good luck finding that guy on the Rival List again before it crashes again), etc.

Since you lose them when you leave, these syndicate points are going to slow down all of the merging and syndicate hopping. Advanced notice would've been nice. We won't be sharing resources with sister syndicates anymore, either. 15k bricks in one syn and 70 in the other. That's just grand.

Wild guess, but i have a feeling the grand prize will have a modifier. I'm hoping for an energy modifier, for obvious reasons. :rolleyes:

I think gree is done giving energy modifiers outside of top 1-3 battle prizes. It would help too much in LTQ's and they would lose gold sales. Just a wild guess, hope I'm wrong as I did not get any of the prior weapons with this modifier. Some guys in my syndicate have 2 of these weapons and they kill it on the LTQs.

I think it is rather stupid to ran another event during boss event. Doing syndicate goals triggers bos when I am not ready for him. This screws up the whole boss event.

Haha...this is really weak. Just completed the LTQ against better judgement half an hour before the end and now we're starting a new event needing energy? I couldn't remember the last time we had a gold sale outside of syndicate battles :rolleyes: On top of it all the update is buggy as hell, as many people already stated before...can't do a damn thing without the game crashing. **** it, I'll see if anything is fixed by the time my energy bar is full again...somewhere tomorrow...

Hey I love all the new challenges, I disagree with the previous comment about "having too many going on at once". I think the more there are the better, that way lower level players can have a chance at catching up at some of the top dogs because eventually, there is going to be a HUGE gap between top and low tier players.
Thanks GREE!

That's probably because you have very little perspective as you haven't been playing the game very long. High level players are killing events much faster than you could ever hope to accomplish at a low level. High level players get much better individual prizes in the PvPs. High level players with high IPHs get much farther in the LTBs. High level players with lots of energy get much farther than you in the LTQs. And so on. The gap is growing with more events, not shrinking. The only way you can hope to catch these players is for these high level players to get burned out and quit. And that seems to be your only hope.

Check App Store for latest version. Just be warned that if you have lots of decorations in your hood, your hood will become sluggish. Many people are also experiencing crashes with latest update.

Ok I still really appreciate your help but now I'm kinda regretting updating. Not only did I waste all my energy hitting captain Smitz over a dozen times without getting a single special hook, but I also have not been able to get Hymen to come looking for a fight. Between hitting Smitz all those times and then over 2 dozen stamina fights I was expecting, and hoping for at least 1 Appearence by Hymen. I only need to defeat him once more for the 20th prize, hope he shows his face soon.

i also did the android update and i noticed something really weird..
my profile attack is 2.618m
when i attack someone my displayed attack is 2.62m (small difference but that wasn't happening in past)
when i rob someone my displayed attack is 1.96m!!!... seems that i lose 700K somehow..
i don't know if this is a glitch or developers reduced our attack during robs

Although I am none to pleased with Gree(d)'s latest sideshow gimmick in an attempt to ludacrisly force players to foolishly waste hard earned money on gold, upon updating my app. approximately 15 hours ago, I've used approximately 4,000 energy thus far towards this newest gimmick, leaving me baffled as to why it's only given me a whopping 12 points.*

While the goal of these complacent numb nuts might be to further entice players, they've actually created an atmosphere that has turned a game, which should be fun, into a job.. Or rather an unjob since jobs pay you. With that, I will be seriously considering retirement from all Gree(d) games.

I just got done doing a Syndicate goal but never gave me points for it. It did say 10/13 + 13/26 but the points for first one only added up to 9 and second one added up to 12. I decided to restart my device and found that still know points and also went back 9/13 + 12/26.

Sounds like your device lost connectivity with the server, so jobs performed whilst out of connectivity revert once you reconnect. Your energy should have refilled at the same time as the jobs undid themselves.

Question 1.
Each goal has two parts. Basically;
1/2. Beat the bad guy 10 times.
2/2. Beat the bad guy until you collect 28 guns.
So, you need to defeat him 10 times before the guns drop? Is that the only reason it's a two part goal or am I missing something?

Question 2.
Are the hits added together? If it takes 8 beatings to get a gun to drop, can I do 6 hits then someone else do 2 and collect the gun?
Sorry I haven't been paying attention, been too busy bashing buttons. Battle has started slowing down now and I'm trying to work it out.

Congrats Gree. Nice LTQ - hopefully it replaces the Syn vs Syn endurance tests that sap my will to live.

That said - my hood still lags (moving through it or resizing). Any plans to optimise game performance?

Furthermore, any chance of adding a tiny zoom in/zoom out button? Am fed up with having to use two fingers to do the work.. then inadvertently bringing up a pop up of one of my trees.

Everything in the game encourages a camping/crawling strategy...whenever there are events that benefit those players who did not camp/crawl and are at a higher level (therefore have more points allocated to energy for this one), low level players complain.

You have your Boss Events...stop complaining about the events that benefit higher level players, or just level up and participate.

If your energy is below 1000 then you are at such a low level that you can easily level dozens of time in a single day. You could have chosen to repeatedly level up (gaining free energy refills as well as increasing total energy) in order to get to 1000. You clearly decided not to do this, because you choose to camp.

Every strategy has benefits and weaknesses. That's why it's called strategy.

Sage words balthazar. But spare a thought for those many, many syndicates that only consist of one player. What are they to do if they can't even lick the doorsteps of the bigger syndicates such as 100CLUB?

There does seem to be a larger gap opening up between the rich and poor. I think it's high time CC introduced a welfare benefits scheme (like the one in the UK) - whereby they, for example:

- Receive free housing (eg. 2 free houses with high rental income)
- Receive health benefits (eg. 25% faster health regeneration)
- Receive financial support (eg. 2M a month)
- Receive 'supermarket' type coupons (eg. That can be exchanged for Gold)
- Receive a Car (eg. Discreet Night Rider A2845/D3027)

It's just an idea. But I think it could work.

I advise any single-man syndicates struggling to complete this event to take a leaf out the book written by my 54th-placing 2-person syndicate, and obtain incredibly high stats and spend a boatload of gold.
