Gree servers crash into the toilet, gold offered to smooth over ruffled feathers

It was not a good weekend for Gree and the Crime City players. It started off badly with several teams completely locked out of the Syndicate events. More people got poked in the eye when the new To Die for Designs LTB mysteriously lost 24 hours of build time. Then the hammer truly fell when Fight Club, 13 time winner of the Syndicate events announced their retirement due to the stats inflation and less than spectaclar game play. They claim they will officially disband their Syndicate at the end of the year and play with the least amount of gold possible. The forums were ablaze with hostile comments and gnashing of teeth over all the problems that have been experienced.

To make everything better, Gree handed out 350 gold bars. The masses seemed to go silent.

I have to say, this isn’t the first, nor will it be the last time we see this sort of thing. Gree has bitten off far more than they can chew with the endless series of events. This endless quest to spend gold is tearing the game apart. It used to be getting a weapon of 500 attack was astronomically powerful. Now, nobody gives a damn, it’s a weak weapon. Crime City is utterly lopsided these days. I suppose gold will silence many, just ilke throwing out Scooby snacks, but this game is turning into an utter mess. Personally, I don’t give a damn about the gold since I don’t spend it. This game was a lot more fun when it was Grand Theft Auto meets SimCity.
