Hey guys,

Later today we are releasing v4.0 - here are the major features and fixes:


Individual leaderboards and prizes for Battle for Empire City - you'll now be able to track participants on an individual basis and also be rewarded separate prizes. There will be tiers for individual prizes - please note that unlike the syndicate prizes, you will get 1 prize for the tier you're in, not all the prizes down.


Funzio ID - FIXED - all of your transferring dreams have come true



Can only view one page of mafia members - FIXED

Oh, also the thing where the newsfeed didn't show how much you were robbed for made it into 4.0

there goes the team aspect of battles, smh.

The individual bit already exists. (beat 1 rival, beat 5 rivals, etc) it sounds like they're just making the leaderboard more transparent, so it doesn't change the core aspect of war being a syndicate event.

It's the heart and soul of camping, and a core fundamental of all of the Gree games. When they really do want to get rid of camping they will remove "level" from the formula that determines how much IP you get when you hit someone in a battle.

I'll be putting this off as long as possible. Last time I updated I couldnt get into the game for three days. Had to load a backed up version of the app via iTunes.

But at least you're working on things other than making the game into the ultimate cash cow.

Expect Gree to be forced to put this feature in all their games in less than a year. The EU has set a commission specifically to investigate Freemium games and the number of issues raised by EU members/citizens.

It meets this Friday with Google, Apple, makers of Candy Crush, some EU association that Gree probably belongs to. The EU will probably announce as a result of the series of meetings changes to protect it's consumers.

Gree is a top 100 seller with many complaints within EU countries so expect the button change or refunds granted rather than refused. I don't think Apple/Google are going to make geographic exceptions to changes required of third parties. So if you are in the EU hit up whatever your country agency is to handle complaints on Freemium games.

Guess I don't understand why after all these updates the issue with $1 thru $5 "robs" on buildings that have already been looted persist. You ask us to spend 10 gold to refill our stamina and then we hit buildings that produce virtually nothing. Seems horribly unfair.

Thats from the code that has buildings with an odd numbered payout. If they made every payout an even number after 2 hits there would be nothing to rob, but since some are odd they leave $1 left. It is by far my most disliked aspect of this game

Sorry have heard that argument before and doesn't make sense. If that were true then why are there also $2,$3,$4 and $5 dollar robs as well?

I prefer Like other games you can log in and out on different devices! The transfer sucks! Like makers of blood brothers you can log in and out on different devices. in case your phone breaks you got a tablet or another phone as back up then you can log back on and resume play! Gree needs to do same thing as blood brothers! Also Gree need to Improve during epic boss the mega attack using gold is a joke! it doesnt do much damage! Improve it by doing more damage so you wont waste too much gold! One thing you should add feature you know the red button? It should have a added feature only Leader and officers can declare war and summon raid boss! and Gree Since Mobage (Maker of blood brothers and other popular games) They always have coins giveaways, You should do samething for gold giveaways contest, like enter your CC ID chance to win 500 to 25,000 gold bars I won 500 coins I didnt know about when I enter on Mobage facebook page! If Mobage is generous on daily coin giveaways then you should be generous on gold giveaways!

So is the battle for empire city more of an individual event than a syndicate event, since we are adding individual prizes?

GREE knows what goes on in messaging apps and are trying to counter it by doing this. I wouldn't be surprised if GREE phased out syndicates all together.

RealTeflonDon
03-04-2014, 10:13 PM
Individual prizes are just an incentive for each player to do better.. nothing wrong with that.

They've also added a prize that every member of the syndicate will get depending on which tier they end up in, on top of the tiered prizes you would normally get. Also nothing wrong with that.

If GREE didnt screw something up this cycle, it was that.

Withholding that the war will be shut down Saturday night from 11pm PST until Sunday 4am PST, is ludicrous though.

That info should have been announced March 1st... rather, its sitting in the announcements sub-forum, waiting to be moved to each specific forum. Pathetic.

It's some kind of justice for the robbed player is the way I see it. They get a laugh out of an attacker wasting a stamina point.

It's just a way to encourage more gold spending. This has been in KA for the last four wars.

To be clear, you get one extra prize based on your rank. The good thing is they usually have a modifier.

Worked perfect for me. I would recommend checking that both devices are updated to version 4.0 and both running iOS 7.0.6
Sign in with your Funzio id on the old device then complete the transfer information. Next do not log in on the new device, just go through transfer information for the new device.
Hopefully that helps and good luck getting back online.

Take away syndicates and they'll take the only thing holding me and others to the game. With the rivals list change, the only reason for me to build attack and defense is for War. The fellowship in the syndicate is a major reason why many stay. I doubt that will happen... but then again, this is Gree

Funzio ID - FIXED - all of your transferring dreams have come true
It seems that, on iOS at least, it is only partially fixed. I tested with an old account and the account transfer is ONE-WAY only. So, once you transfer to a new device, you CANNOT TRANSFER BACK TO THE OLD DEVICE - all my attempts to do so failed. This is not much use when, for example you want to move back and forth between an iPhone and iPad, like in the old days.

2. I play raid boss
3. I play epic boss
4. I take part in ltq sltq

I gave up rob/pvp with the sh*tty new rivals list, I don't have an hour to search for someone I can actually rob who also actually has something worth robbing. That kind of time suck makes it unfun!

On iOS for free gold they made it so you watch one video and you get 1 free gold. Prior you had to watch 5 videos to get 1 free gold. So that a big improvement for iOS that Android already had.

A little digging & it appears that ANDROID 2.3.3 is NOW MINIMUM REQUIREMENT FOR GAME.....

***NOW A&F SHOULDN'T THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN BOLD & CAPITALS AT THE START OF THIS THREAD***

Thanks GREE, for screwing up one of my strong accounts, just ahead of the Battle Event!
Especially pleased, as put a bit of gold on account yesterday to kill of one of the ridiculous level 10 Bosses!

NB: & Of course, when I try synching old phone with Samsung Kies. it keeps crashing for no reason... So I'm doubly screwed!!!

well, I started a new hood, only three days old and built a syndicate to fight. 35k attack and am 11-3, but I need to know how to figure what the PA does and how to figure what I can beat. Not one match up have I been able to beat anyone without a PA, one team had five members with DL of 111k, how is that even fair? and yes it was on a four win streak, had three of four, so I used the gold I got on the 40% sale and took DL out, the second guy I still could not beat with PA and they were at 42k. the third guy was only lvl ten and I did beat him with PA and did that three times and won, despite gree and the match up, but if I had known how crapy the reward was I would not have done it! how do you expect a new player to like this game? this is my third hood and now I think I might just nuke them all. Gree you make me sad, not happy and happiness is what sells!
