View Full Version : Perspective check!! How much gold will it take to do one of three LTQs going?

Well this being a 5 day event means its 120 hours.. In 120 hours with the best case scenario of 10% faster energy regen, that gives you like 8,182 regens. 3 energy per you can generate about 24,545 energy.

The only complete set of stats I have for reference is from The Reaper and its for the family LTQ, The Thugs LTQ has too much missing data for me to guess. According to his tables though the family portion of this LTQ required 122,325 Energy. Now mind you, you either had to totally complete the thugs event or use money/gold to purchase the items to complete the family portion, but that aside where does that leave you for even just the family event?

5 days = 120 hours = 7,200 minutes (Regen every .88 minutes) = 8,182 Regens x 3 per = 24,545 energy...

Just the family portion required 122,325 energy. For me to complete just this portion not touching either of the other two I have a difference of 97,780 energy. Take 2,200 I had to start the event that makes 95,580 difference.

Wow. This out of hand gree. I guess if they'll pay you just do it and get paid. 95,580 is 96 refills. 20 gold per refill means 1912 gold. That's almost $150 us dollars for just that portion to complete.

That hasn't even touched the base LTQ that you had to do to get the items for this one... Wow. Whats the point of a free game anyhow? In the 7 months I've played its changed quite a bit and it seems its just aimed at more money in your pocket while doing nothing to make it more fun for the players...

You're right, it's become more of a high class/low class game.

There's ways of making the game enjoyable for the company and the consumers. But the only possible way is by changing the way attack/defense is gained, creating a high class-middle class-low class status system will do it, even more with stats inflation, which devalues statuses rapidly at an increasing rate, devalues the money that comes from consumers/costumers. Now there's no way of fixing stats inflation, so they have to change the way players gain statuses. ---- The new SLTQ system which allows players with high or enough IPH get a small stats boost is a good attempt --

1 suggestion would be to make LTQs obtainable (a reasonable price for the majority) by the majority (Gree know what the majority is), that does not mean they must increase the amount of energy required to complete a LTQ, that's not a serious answer, sorry.

I just realized this, not months ago, but just now.

This game has gotten so expensive and the price will continue to rise as the handful of ppl continue to buy. Gree looses money on an event so the next event becomes harder w better prizes to try and make up for the losses. Really 2 vaults to complete individual ltqs and thats not touching sltq which calls for a vault also. Along w no epic boss a laggy raid boss and a pick 10 yea right gree fix the game (android) and lower the cost to complete events and I and a ton of other disgruntled players will stop complaining and start adding to your overall revenue.

Didnt realize u did the math, kind of unfortunate. The "family" one is the only 1 worth doin I wouldnt even b doin the syndicate one if mine wasnt hell bent on getting it finished. I would have bought the items first day and called it quits

Its turning into an all money game that's terribly programmed and I don't see it changing.. Driving those of us that don't want to spend 400 dollars every two weeks just to complete an event and stay competitive right away...

Stop trying to compete with the rich. You've nailed down the changes to the rules. Now play by the new rules. Play for free in a decent syndicate. You'll still be sitting on stats that are better than 80%.

What do you mean by "stay competitive"? Was your goal ever to stay competitive with tam, because that cost Way more than $400. You gave up on trying to compete with tam the instant you realized that she had more money and was willing to burn it. Now you have to do the same for every other person who is willing to set hundred dollar bills on fire. Nothing has changed.

The game has grown more expensive, yes, but it's your choice what you spend if at all.

Only people with a kind of gamble addiction stay in this game. You'd better go to a casino. You can sometimes realy win something there. Crime City only has losers.
