Prizes are great. Ty for this info.

Not very helpful for new players looking to improve their IPH.

Just my 2 cents


Edit- in store it says $134 income per day. Dunno if that includes my building output bonuses or not

Base payout is really just over $200/day? Seriously?

Hey AF, can we get a really expensive LTB next time? I mean, I get the point of having the LTBs really cheap (that way, you increase the pool of people able to afford it with in game cash, and that way, you expand the possibilities of people using gold to finish). But it would be nice to actually use the the fact of having a good IPH in order to get ahead of a low IPH player. Something to reward high Income Per Hour (IPH) players! :) Anyways, thanks for the info. :p

Can you still post the upgrade costs as kind of a base price guide? I'm trying to determine if the costs for the upgrade prizes will be worth the effort. With or without modifiers, the costs & prize stats will differ for everyone any way.

How about a list of cost to upgrade to each level and time for each upgrade

I will assume cost question was a joke and upgrade times are always the same.
Without mod it goes 24,30,36 etc

Can this LTB be completed without gold? Will there be enough time with 21 days?

Getting Bored
01-28-2014, 06:53 PM
A&F, I appreciate the info provided.

I saw your post before you edited and deleted the payouts and upgrade cost per level. In the future I think it would be beneficial to the CC community if you would continue to post the base payout and base cost per upgrade without modifiers. That way the members would at least have a baseline value to go off of and could calculate their own individual upgrade cost and payout per level based on their own modifiers if they so desired.

Just a thought to be considered.

Can this LTB be completed without gold? Will there be enough time with 21 days?

upgrade times 24,30,36,42,48,54,60,66,72,78 = 510 hrs (= 21 days 6 hrs) and only have 19.16 hrs left

01-28-2014, 07:39 PM
A&F, In future, would it be possible to offer tiers for LTBs? Offer the same building for sale / upgrade but a couple of ingame cash expense levels. You could cater for all IPH level players by offering an 'inexpensive' base / upgrade cost and an 'expensive' option. Use the same prizes but have an option (or 2) for players to choose which one to build and earn the prizes.
For instance this current LTB 'inexpensive' option as $10,000 base cost, 'expensive' option as, say, $100,000,000 base cost.
The payout for the buildings being inline with the build / upgrade cost.

Have to agree with this, well not the drugs bit, it's fine to help the newer players out but every ltb seems to be aimed at them recently with the exception of slaybelles.

01-28-2014, 07:46 PM
This LTB is basically disgusting. The figures for this building need to be multiplied by at least 1000 in both payout and cost. Gree, why must you insult us? Hell, this is even an insult to some of the lowest of incomes! You prove me right every time I resist spending.

01-28-2014, 09:10 PM
Once again Gree think of themselves and slap a crappy ltb our way that any chump can afford.
The plan is obviously to get as many people as possible close to the end and get them to use gold to complete it.

Spunky
01-28-2014, 09:41 PM
Man whats all the fuss about? this is the best LTB yet! it cost next to nothing and gives pretty good prizes. Its ugly as sin so we don't mind deleting it when we finish and it wont clutter our hood (though its looks kind of represent the new look of CC so maybe Ill put it centre stage and keep it) Iph has just been made redundant anyway with the new rivals list so what are you all complaining about.
Great job Gree! this LTB fits right in with your new look game!

This new prices for ltb and its upg cost is bull****. I dont need to care about my iph or hood if they gonna keep it this way. Im forced to upg this b**** ltb just to keep my stat flow up with evryone else. Give us a upg mod for two buildings or keep losing old and loyal players.

So, times, cost, payouts (without/with modifiers) please..... I'm gonna do it the slow way but have a stinking casino with 25 hours left to build..... so..... please fill in the table if you do this with gold for those of us who don't have it. Thanks.

BTW, I like the idea here as newer/lower IPH players can benefit. We had several months with large cost build. Two months with low/mid cost is cool IMO. Back to higher cost next month is fine.

Mine just came up 6 hours ago and says 19 days 12 h left

Cheers.

Zend, please define "extremely high income". Would you consider my 9.5 million/hr to be a ghetto? I'm all for encouraging players to develop economy, but getting the whiff of exclusivity here, which is just as obnoxious to me as a big gold spender demanding that events should cost more real money to complete.

If Gree have chosen epic bosses and LTBs as a way for free/low spending players to be able to progress to completion, that's fair enough to me. There are still plenty of leeches out there who were unable to run the circus tent and other low cost LTBs to level 10. But if this one is distasteful to you, then don't build it and carry on running your other buildings up.

I'd far rather a more widespread bonus to allow two simultaneous upgrades was introduced. That would allow players to do LTBs whilst not being frozen out of better upgrade paths if they don't use gold to run everything up.

I agree this is a good LTB because it has our stats in mind and not the iph. It is easy to build even for new accounts and groups of stats. Why complaint about it? What's next two LTB to choose from? Some people would complain why not three!!!

Max Power
01-29-2014, 07:55 AM
Well, since this is a very do-able build to 10 for even lower income players, it really offers no tactical advantage to anyone. Everybody will do it and all will be equal. That's OK, I guess but kinda pointless. The high income guys are not seeing many rewards lately, and expensive LTBs was one of the few ones they had left.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the LTB would come this fast so I have about 60 hours left on a casino upgrade. Bummer.

01-29-2014, 08:13 AM
Don't be na´ve and think Greed did this for you low IPH players. It still takes gold to complete. They think the more that are close to complete, the more that might use gold. IE: cash in their pockets and more bananas for the monkey Developers and QA's.

My2cents
01-29-2014, 08:18 AM
Perhaps this will be my first ltb that i wont build two. Maybe they'll be issuing a super duper expensive one next which is why this one is so cheap giving us the opportunity to bank some good cash. Wishful thinking? Considering two poor man buildings in a row. After this LTB I'll have $8B on hand.
Anyway stats gained from this won't mean much for pvp since rivals are all the same.
Also I don't feel like doing a cost table. The final level 10 without modifiers the cost will be $1,010,295. And the income will be 30x of level one.

01-29-2014, 09:37 AM
You know why people liked the LTB? Because it was a challenge. It costed a large sum of in-game cash to complete and people would have to rob to get this cash. There was strategy and tactics involved. It was a race against time. Now the basic requirement is to log on every couple of days and hit the upgrade button and at the end spend 90 bucks to finish it, yippe!. Not to mention that most people can afford the level 10 on this dreadful ****ing excuse for a building, with one collection!
Honestly, this game turning to **** and who's fault is it? The greedy arseholes running the game. They are running it into the ground. Autistic monkeys could do a better job. What a load of Bull****!
Hard work, tactics and strategy mean nothing. Money Money Money! You are killing your own game and the downfall in profits is all self inflicted. Listen to the people, before you lose them.
Ban me, I honestly don't give a ****!

I cannot build the Arcade via Chase For Quarters. I have been trying since the update last night into today, when I make the purchase, press the green buttong to make the build it displays a message "Cannot Reach Server. Please check your internet connection and try again". I have no other issues, or I have not discovered any additional issues since the update. Who or where can I go to address this issue? If I go through the normal issue reporting channels, the event will likely be over and I will be "out of luck".

i think we should get like a 20mil - 30mil ltb with a reasonable payout, the ice rink and this are not helping anybody with their iph

Freddy**
01-29-2014, 10:39 AM
I think a solution for this is to have 2 LTB's going at the same time. A cheap one like this where lower IPH people can participate and a more expensive one. Prize stats would be somewhat lower for the cheaper building and higher for the more expensive one. This way you will have to choose the path you want to take.

Sure there is a downside to this where gold players will compete both and people with +1 building upgrade will do both but I think for the majority of people it satisfies people wanting a cheap LTB and ones wanting a more expensive one.

As a syndicate leader I don't mind a super cheap LTB like this one once in a while. We are about 4 bonuses away from having all of them, and the super expensive LTB's drastically slow down donations. However, this is the 2nd cheap one in a row, so I would like to see a nice high-payout LTB next time. Keep them coming in as 24-hour buildings though!

I think I just about had enough. had enough of the whinging, had enough of the game. no point building iph anymore. no point building stats anymore no point playing really. 6 months ago Gree seamed to be making a great effort to introduce elements of the game to suit most types of game play. they got very little thanks though I really appreciated it. now that has gone out the window. Game is being redesigned to suit new and low stat players and that's fair enough and great for them. Most of us on the forum have been playing for a long time and so we complain. Probably best to face the music. Our accounts have exceeded their usfull life! perhaps Ill retire and go play a different Gree game. Oh wait! THERE ALL THE FREAKING SAME!

Yes, NC means Night Club. But the advice to take a Casino to level 10 is absurd. From what Tramp Stamp said, the ROI (return on investment) would take years to satisfy. NCs are a good investment, as are movie theaters and Lofts

Lol.

Tramp Stamp's stuff was great for the time. But a bit outdated now. NCs and LTBs are the best upgrades in the game. Casinos and other cash buildings (Office Building, Condo, etc) work into the mix as well (very good upgrades to mid-levels). MT and Lofts should probably never be upgraded past L6/7 now because of the new alternatives available (LTBs) and after your IPH is above ~500k you probably shouldn't ever consider then again.

Yes, agreed....great stepping stone, in the first 3-6 months of playing..but you can't include NCs and Loft/MTs in the same sentence....as soon as you are upgrading NCs somewhat regularly, you should be focusing on NCs and LTB upgrades (Pagoda, WSFG, NIS, etc) with a few high-end cash building upgrades (Casino, Hotel, Condo, etc) thrown in

Golden Advice. Ignored by the masses. :)

All I would add is that level B LTBs give most bang for the buck at low levels. Anything above level 6 or so is more about stats than income.

Agreed L5/6 is where most buildings (ex. NCs, Pagodas) start becoming poor ROI investements....but now that my main account has nearly $25m IPH, upgrade time becomes a dominating factor. So when I find myself very cash rich, I opt for the very expensive WSFG or NIS upgrades over the NC upgrades, because I will still have billions left after the upgrade and I actually increase my IPH faster then doing a NC upgrade....my NCs are currently L10/L8, and WSFG are L8/L7...and I could see both my WSFG getting to L10 before my 2nd NC, because I hate the 100 hr upgrade time for late level NCs (even with the -25% modifier).

Makes total sense. Time is a huge factor for sure. My syndicate still doesn't have all bonuses maxed so I dump extra cash there while doing long upgrades. My biggest mistake was resisting Ncs for so long because of 6 hour collection time. It was stupid and cost me months.

We need an LTB laundromat after this. Call it Heisenberg's Hideout.

And make sure it a Methlab!

I cannot build this building. When I try to put into my hood, everytime I got just message "cannot reach server". Anybody with the same problem?

I find that sometimes I'm already building another building when I get this message. Check your hood to see if you already have a building in progress. If so either sell it or finish it. Then you should be able to start the LTB.

Yes...Pagodas, Toy Box, Shiner's Still, WSFG, NIS, Sley Belles lower levels of Transtech, Dockside, Barbershop & Smoked Fowl are all much, much better then upgrading MTs and Lofts....unless you are just starting out, which I figured you weren't s since you've had a forum account for over a year. I figured you had some of these buildings....guess not

My "retired" account had those buildings, which definitely made money...that's true. My new accounts...still cannot afford, except for these newer bldgs which are only good for goal rewards.

Hello! Has anyone had a problem with the arcade upgrade starting over? I have 2 accts level 189 and level 25. I started the throwback arcade on both accounts at the same time, and do the upgrades at the same time. On my main, it showed the upgrade was done, which seemed early, but I started the next upgrade. Went to my 2nd account the jr, and it showed it still had 19+hours on the level 6 upgrade? When I went back to the main, it shows that I just started the level 6 and it has 53:44 hours to complete. Any suggestions for me?!?! I've never had that problem before, I'm not sure what to do. Thanks for any help!!!!!!!!

Same here on the ncs, I thought they were horrible until I saw it on cc wiki lol, would've easily been 20mil iph by now if I didn't make that mistake

Once again if you are after iph. Upgrade your nightclubs. Seriously.

Zend, please define "extremely high income". Would you consider my 9.5 million/hr to be a ghetto? I'm all for encouraging players to develop economy, but getting the whiff of exclusivity here, which is just as obnoxious to me as a big gold spender demanding that events should cost more real money to complete.

If Gree have chosen epic bosses and LTBs as a way for free/low spending players to be able to progress to completion, that's fair enough to me. There are still plenty of leeches out there who were unable to run the circus tent and other low cost LTBs to level 10. But if this one is distasteful to you, then don't build it and carry on running your other buildings up.

I'd far rather a more widespread bonus to allow two simultaneous upgrades was introduced. That would allow players to do LTBs whilst not being frozen out of better upgrade paths if they don't use gold to run everything up.

Total agreement with the simultaneous upgrade idea. And why not a real "throwback" back build and give us the choice to pick one of the older limited buildings (i.e. bank or jewelry store) we missed out on at the time. That would be swell.

That building is for beginners. Thay hasn't got enough money to build expensive one and now that can emprov their own stats. If you don't like that you have got lots of time to emprov your buildings for a higher level.

Does the ltb need to be completed before time runs out or does it just need to be started before. Thanks first I dont have gold to compete a building
I pretty sure it has to be completed before the time runs out.
