Totally Lame Ass Prizes – Crime City

So the Epic Boss Event has really just begun, but the prizes being handed out suck. I don’t want any more Punk Pants thank you very much. How about a little more variety Gree?

And speaking of variety, how many Enhanced Bikes and Carnival Sledgehammers do I need? Can you at least change up the items a bit? These are the same weapons from a dozen events ago. Seriously, I don’t need 22 bikes. Too bad you can’t sell off the excess crap and make a few bucks off the deal.

With 5 hours left I have 9 Walkie Talkies and it doesn’t look too damn good for number 10 to come into my life. It used to be I failed miserably at the 20 item events, but actually finished the 10 item ones. Since Gree put in these Uber weapons at the end that’s not happening any more. I’ll spend the gold for buildings, but damn, spot fleecing me at every turn. There’s a gold button on every damn menu now. And since you’ve taken the Earn Free Gold button away I’m saving that gold for special purchases. I’m not buying a vault of gold ($99.95) just to get some damn car in a game. Bring back the Earn Free Gold button or lower the damn prices!

If I’m going to drop $100 on something it’s going to be a bottle of Macallan or Crystal Head, or Shroud of the Avatar. Gree isn’t doing enough or offering enough to earn that kind of cash. The game is still fun, but this blatant holding out their hand asking for gold at every turn is starting to wear really f-ing thin. Do us all a favor Gree and loosen the purse strings a little bit. Constantly beating people over the head isn’t the right way to get us spending money. This endless series of events is wearing me out, especially when I know damn well and good I won’t reach the end. The incentive to play is starting to wane. Watching other players spend $100 for each event (if they aren’t cheating their asses off) and rise the top diminishes the fun. I like building my hood, I like the Syndicate idea, but this constant need for gold is getting a bit much.

I tell you what, as soon as the Beta builds of Shroud of the Avatar comes out, Crime City is going to have a hard time keeping my attention.I’ll come around just to harvest cash and get in the Battle for Empire City. These other events are tiring.

    Hey scabby…I figured out a way to get more gold than before. So basially get the Tapjoy app to your home screen, go in, press earn the gold or whatever, then download an app after you get in. It’ll get you 1-2 bars of gold, and you don’t need to wait an hour to do it again (assuming that’s how your button worked). I earned myself 24 bars in 8 hours, and I’m not even going on every twenty minutes. And btw, if you already downloaded the app and deleted it it and want to try it again it won’t work anymore.
