    Back.. to back.. to back

    9 in a row! But we didn't hit 10. At least we didn't and hopefully never will have 10 battle weekends in a row.

    6.05-6.08: Riptide Rampage (SA)
    6.19- 6.23: Shoreline Shootout (4-day battle)
    6.26-6.30: "Special" Street Assault
    7.03-7.05: Star Spangled Slammer (1-day battle)
    7.09-7.13: Bourgeois Blowout (SA)
    7.17-7.20: 5th Avenue Francis (3-day battle)
    7.24-7.27: Terminal Velocity (SA)
    7.31-8.03: Free Fall Brawl (4-day battle)
    8.07-8.11: Hangar Hustle (SA)

    I for one would like a break, as I'm sure everyone else would as well. This "game" is reallyyy starting to feel like a chore instead of a phone app.

    For this reason, I'm pretty close to being done. The only reason that I haven't stopped is because, in the event I choose to come back, the designers are accellerating stat inflation to a rate that if I'm gone for one month, I may as well stay gone forever.

    If you can't keep up, feel free to fall behind. Why shouldn't the DEDICATED players be able to gain an advantage over you?

    I'll be back when the moderation is reasonable. Enjoy the forum you created, Gree.

    The dedicated players are the ones being pushed away

    Mhm, the clock says tomorrow but I got a cc notification saying it starts today.

    Not proven though. It could be a battle. Maybe they're going for 3 battles in one cycle now. They already had 3 SA's in one

    They can take a weekend off any time they like. The rest of us will enjoy a chance to catch up a bit. No one's forcing you to tap.

    I think the war clock was not reset when GREE overhauled the Master Plan.

    Master Plan says something starts today. I guess we'll find out @3PM PDT.

    Weren't people moaning a few days ago when there WASN'T an event on? Now people are moaning when there is one scheduled?

    Agreed, but the designers are requiring an ever increasing level of dedication, and no matter how much people complain that enough is enough, it's "full steam ahead". As far as level of dedication goes, they're targeting one. Had a buddy in a top 3 who spent a thousand a month on this game (yes, he was a single man). His reasoning? The less gold he used the more time he had to spend in game to be competitive.

    So, it would seem that Gree's "dedicated" target market isn't the ones who play the game consistantly, but rather the people who log in, spend $300 at a time tapping like mad, then putting their device down for a few days.

    Yes, yes, yes. I know your answer Dippy. "Pay the man."

    This game is a competition to waste the most time and/or money. If someone wants to spend more of those resources on the game, they will get ahead of you. This complaint is arguing that Gree should essentially prevent people from spending time and/or money when they want to. This is nonsense. I like playing the game, and if I have other things going on or if I start to get bored of it, I back off. For example, I've had a hell of a week so I didn't open many boxes, and I pretty much gave up on the boss event. You won't see me on here complaining that there's a boss event scheduled.

    To be honest, as long as there are a significant number of people completing every event, there's a pretty good argument that there should be MORE events with HARDER goals in order to give the people who REALLY want to waste their money a chance to do so and distance themselves from the pack.

    Lol little late to catch on huh? Players have been asking for a "break" for years now. Just gotta roll with it or just take an event or two off, not like a couple hundred mil will hurt that much these days
