    Boost Buildings

    The boost buildings that give a base 6% power upgrade were free to upgrade. Now they cost tens of billions for low level upgrades? The top players have them all fully upgraded. Now the mid and lower level players who can afford them thanks to the last round of decent money buildings being available can buy them, but wonít be able to afford to upgrade them.

    Youíve moved the goal posts again. The top players are fine and everyone else is royally screwed.

    Itís a great move to get even more people to quit.

    Before the stupid comments come, I have them all fully upgraded. This isnít about me, itís about the game as a whole.

    Apparently, upgrading from level nine to ten would cost about 173 billion, when it was free yesterday.

    It's just like any building. You upgrade what you can afford, so what's new? The players who can afford to buy but not fully upgrade can at least get them on the ground. Perhaps we've all forgotten how we used to s c r a p e away to find cash to buy an upgrade for our lofts and nightclubs etc back in the day.

    Crying and quitting over what is a fairly trivial thing is rather pathetic, really. Where I would agree is if the price of upgrading has been raised by insane levels, IF the purchase price has not changed (ie, if the buildings previously cost lots of gold to buy but are now cash, you can't expect upgrades to remain free).

    I agree sister morphine... plus just because something is released again doesn’t mean the upgrade process or anything will be just like it was the first time it came out.

    But sounds like you need any reason to quit so might as well... bye Felicia

    Level 2 on the tank is free, whatever. How much gold did these 6% buildings cost when they first came out? Quite a bit as I recall.

    How often will this happen tho? When war prizes were on the table about being redone, it benefited all players. When they actually came out, only top 5 syns really got anything good. Guess that comes from all reps being top 5 syns.

    Officially two days at time of writing. I suspect that means midnight PST on Tuesday.

    The lesser prizes did get a mafia bonus, which made them worthwhile at least. As for top prizes, no comment from me; can't remember the last time I even looked at prizes during war or SA.

    Thank you Deca for fixing the problem. My syndicate members and thousands of people who don’t have trillions in the bank are happy now.

    I remember those days! My mini was pleased when he could buy recent re-releases this past week. Surely made many enemies while robbing to buy them .

    I'd like to thank all the LLP "Alex"s for funding my new LEBs & upgrades $$$

    LLP=low level player(s), usually means under Level 100
    LEB=Limited Edition Buildings, any building not usually in the store

    I'm not worried at all about boost buildings having much of an impact on the game.... I have over 1000% (some 3000%+) boosts on most equipment and I'm hardly a game changer, so getting another +150-200% won't do too much

    To me, the boost buildings are just fun to have and upgrade since I have plenty of cash buildings, just something new.
