All LTBs seem to be the same upgrade times, so consult an old one for that

Looks like it says. For every level upgrading you get "Vinnie's Boss Wrench"
Attack 22384, Defense 14922.
Similar to last LTB. With 1% melee attack bonus stackable.

How in the world do I keep not receiving things owed to me?! I realize I'm not special, so this must be happening to some other people as well.
The latest: I never received this "vinnies boss wrench" nor the modifier. LTB has been completed for a couple hours now.. help?


Call off the search party, It has arrived... but still bring the hot cocoa :D

Not a miss at all because you need tools like wrenches to take cars apart! Hence the melee +1%

Except this one takes 2 stamina each time you hit it.

I was about to rob a level one c.shop, and it required 158 stamina. WTF!

huff-n-puff
03-17-2014, 07:15 AM
2 Stamina points! I see now why I was getting frustrated this morning trying to rob one and it kept telling me I needed more stamina. I'd go rob something else to make sure the game was working and come back to it as soon as I had 1 stamina again. I am very glad I am on this forum! So much good info!

I like the idea of a building requiring more stamina to rob it. With that said though I think it would be cool if every building had an option when upgrading to choose from upgrading building output, stamina required to rob, and up the defense level on that specific building.

I LOVE that idea! Even if it's just for the Special LT buildings, it adds an interesting new option.

It would make it hard on low lvl players who don't have much stamina but need money.

how was I trying to insult you? my stats are below and i'm in a virtually gold free syn that was just outside top 400 with a few of us unable to participate last war for various reasons.

if you are active and fancy joining a higher performing group then send me a PM and watch those stats soar. I left a group full of inactives for an active group and in the time that you've been playing my stats have risen from 3.2mil to 11mil.

Because if they did this iPh would become useless and future ltb events would fall apart.

Can we please go back to the format where the prizes get better with each upgrade? In this format, the value of the prize decreases with each upgrade.

therealbengie

they don't decrease they simply don't increase but a stackable 2% mod isn't bad at all, it means more the longer you play.

I like the idea that LTBs have mods now, but i tend to agree with Kemo. Upgrading from 9 to 10 (especially in the given time) is much harder than upgrading from 1 to 2, and definitely should have a better reward.

You don't understand what I'm saying. The prize obviously does not decrease, the value of the prize does. We are paying more and more for the same prize which means we are getting less stats/mod per dollar.

Why not attach the 1% mod to each prize but at least give out better prizes for each upgrade. I know if I suggest to increase the prizes and attach a 10% modifier on the final prize (my vote!) people will flip out even though it makes sense and that's how every other event is run. If someone gets their building to level 9 and I finish with 10 I barely get an advantage. If I end up 1 goal short in any other event the person who does finish gets a big advantage.

Why was this change made? Is Gree trying to be clever (which for some reason never really works out) or lazy?

therealbengie
03-27-2014, 07:05 AM
the value of a mod far out weighs any individual prize that 99.9% of people get in the long run, I can se what you're saying regarding progress but you're not only gaining stats but also raising your iph to help with the next LTB. personally I gave up on this LTB a couple days ago when I reached level 8 as at 10mil my iph isn't high enough to to take it any further, instead I have started the level 9 upgrade on my second pagoda and started saving for the next LTB. If I hadn't put ~2bil into my syndicate this month then I could have gone 1 extra upgrade.

therealbengie

btw at level 8 my chopshop pays out $13.3million so that's another 60-70million a week with reasonable collections.

That would suck, simply because this event is impossible to finish without gold, and gree makes sure that we don't get enough time. Except for those lucky ones, who have the time reduction mod. Even though i agree with what you're saying.
But there may be a compromise: for example - first 5 upgrades come without mods, and the last 5 get 2% each.

therealbengie
03-27-2014, 07:15 AM
personally I'd rather see the prizes get stronger stats and keep the same mod if anything was going to change, not that I want it to change as a 20k weapon and 2% mod per level is a good prize, if you reach level 10 then that's a 20% stack mod and 220k of raw stats!

I finish every ltb event with no gold. :D I always finish upgrading to level 10 with no gold AND I have a few days to spare to upgrade something that takes a long like my nightclubs.

I would be raising my iph no matter what prizes are being given out so I don't really understand that point you made. Also I want progression with the stats as well as a mod for the 10th upgrade. This is how pretty much ALL the events are run. These ltbs made all the effort I previously worked so hard on worth it but now it has been slightly diminished again.

therealbengie
04-01-2014, 10:44 AM
not being funny but I don't know what point you're referring to, the only one I made was regarding the value of mods Vs items, neither of which have anything to do with iph.
