Crime City servers will be down for maintenance starting on November 2nd at 10:50 PM PDT and will end shortly after November 3rd at 3:00 AM PST. During this time Crime City will not be accessible.


EDIT: Please note, this will affect the Raid Boss tonight. You will not be able to summon at 9:50 PDT so that nobody misses out on time before the game is down.

You guys will still allow others to rob my buildings before they are up for collection and not compensate me, since I didn't have the chance to collect. This occurs without fail every single time the clock changes.

Maybe this will be enough to break ones ties to this terrible regime you've built.

Why is not under Announcements in the sub-forums?

10-30-2013, 10:17 PM
They should do something... It makes the game more exciting!!!!
In fact it would be par norm for them to say "we will extend it" then not do it. Wait, then they will do it for half the time only to add a 1/4 of the time and then award everyone nothing because they didn't explain what they would do but expected you to know but you didn't... Understand?

Good!!! Glad I was clear..

That was awesome, Snowflake. You may have a future in Gree management.

Question....to much of whining about a day of lost pay to read all - event starting today, is it a PVP? or is that what's set for down time period. And Gree, really you should get better Servers! You're Internationally Bombarded and Outnumbered. And, my hubs is an IT Tech. Any jobs open? lol!

Might as well just quit now.There are legitimate robberies and then there are those that shouldve never happened. A daylight savings robbery of buildings that were not up for collection in the first place deserves complete reversal. This is not at all unreasonable.


Build a decent income and you wont mind getting robbed every now and again. It is a game, rob and be robbed.You obviously haven't been here long. My income is 43 million an hour. I am not going to serve some undeserving punk 400 million bucks just because this lousy company can't get their game to work right.

Right in the afternoon here in Australia when we will be trying to fighting through elite (for my syndicate anyway).

Scheduling down time during the raid boss only helps gangs with heavy gold spenders. I was willing to use some vaults to finish too, but preventing me will save gold. I'm confused, don't you want me to buy and use gold? Or, are you just interested in supporting the real heavy gold buyers? Can't you reschedule this maintenance?

Kwicky
11-02-2013, 10:10 AM
If we are working on a raid boss round that requires 11 victories and we have completed 6 when the server goes down will those wins count when the server is back up?

jrei
11-02-2013, 02:35 PM
The last part of the raid boss you have to win 10 in a row. If you have say 5 and in the middle of 6 and maintenance starts, will it all get messed up and you'll start over?

Jerle

Stooboot
11-02-2013, 03:50 PM
So I think the real questions are 1 Are we going to get an extra 4-5 hrs for the raid boss, which is rhetorical and 2 why wouldn't u have this done during one of the 3 ltqs that are going on this month?

BigMoney
11-02-2013, 04:51 PM
I think a better question that no one has asked yet is how daylight savings time, starting at Nov 2am PST, affects the stated times. Does the "3am PST" the downtime ends already take that hour into account? Meaning the downtime of 10:50pm - 3:00am is actually 5 hours and 10 minutes?

Thanks Gree
11-02-2013, 06:29 PM
BigMoney... PST means after the change has occurred... so it should include the hour.

As noted in the original post... 10:50 pm PDT until 3:00 am PST shows GREE actually does know the difference between Daylight and Standard time.

So it is 5 hours and 10 mins after, based on what they wrote... hopefully it is actually that!

This is great to be aware and know for regular forum readers. It's a shame no mechanism exists to notify the other non-forum players about these kinds of important announcements within the game, like say, a pop-up box. It would probably cut down significantly on complaints and support tickets, I imagine.

:rolleyes:

Maybe those pesky and useless crate windows could be replaced with important announcements.

Sadly my crew just was informed about this. Can we get any gold reimbursed that was currently in use for a boss event triggered when the servers kicked us off? (Ie: gold used toward a boss, which we now can't complete)

Out of the 100's of thousands of players that play, how many are on the forum!?! Not nearly as many. 5-10%? I'd likely to guess. I used to respect your opinion. But you assuming all players have logged into to this forum and knew... Is assanine....

But you assuming all players have logged into to this forum and knew... Is assanine....They pushed out a notice from the game to me on my two devices so every player most likely got it. I think they did what they can in that case. But it's pretty idiotic to do it in the middle of the raid boss, idk why the f they did that.

yea they are moving cc to their old lame servers and shifting all of the newer titles to their fast systems so that they can give value to the newer customer base lol ... j/k .. but who knows, could be true ;)

My guess is they shut it's down during the time that we in North American are switching to Standard time to control any glitches the game might have with the clock rolling back an hour. I don't remember this happening last year, but then again, I think last year at this time, syndicates and all the new bells and whistles didn't exist.

Upgrades... Yeah right. As a company, GREE Inc is not in the best shape to be investing in new infrastructure.

The Squeeze
11-03-2013, 02:27 AM
No worries, just another TYPICAL Gree(d) screw up!

I'm confident :rolleyes: though that they will do the RIGHT thing and add an extra 4 hours to the end of the event. It's the fair and right thing to do, right?

No, I think I might be hallucinating!

Wait, I got it! Gree, ALWAYS being on top of everything, knew there would be this problem, and scheduled an extra 4 hours in to the original time frame.

Nope, that's not quite it either though, huh?

Really, under the guise of the time change, and "maintenance" being needed, we'll shave 4 hours off of a major event and see how many people we can swindle in to FOOLISHLY wasting hard earned, REAL money on gold to make up for lost time.

Now THAT sounds about right! :mad:

DannyD
11-03-2013, 02:30 AM
The only explanation for doing it in the middle of the event is that it coincides with the changing of the clocks overnight. Otherwise, I'm sure this could have waited until the event was done. I am also sure they won't extend the event time, as the time we are already given was determined knowing this break was a part of it. If this was UNSCHEDULED maintenance, they might have extended it... But then you would have every syn that finished early complaining that they spent gold to finish in time, and it would just be another war on the forums...

The LTQ that had a public start date was postponed, but they didn't postpone the raid boss even tho they did know about the "maintenance"? I'm confident they could have solved this in another way, but Gree(d) like money and this gonna make them a chunk of extra dollars. I call BS on any other explanation than the money.

One thing I have noticed is that certain buildings are harder to select when robbing, there seem to be some black spots where you can't hit the rob symbol without selecting another building. Hood design may actually be worth something now. I've had one example where I gave up trying to get a toy box surrounded by larger buildings, all others I got eventually :-)

KingOW
