Loot Drops for the last few hours of Season Surprise Event – Crime City

I just saw this list and got both the -10% Build Time and the -50% Bank Deposit. I had no idea these were out there, so pick and choose what you want. They don’t stack so once you get an item move on to something else. Getting a second won’t help.

Get it on!

Loot drops are back for those that didn’t get them the first time!!!

Epic Boss Event Prizes and Syndicate Rewards – Crime City

It’s a relentless stream of events in Crime City, almost to the point of being monotonous and a grind, but the prizes have been pretty high end. The pace is pretty grueling, but these rewards have had a big impact on my character. Not to mention this latest Epic Boss Event and the tiered reward structure. I got my 100 wins in within 48 hours. Life and work got in the way of me completing the 24, but I’m not going to quibble. I’ve managed to pick up the big gun, the big car, another big gun and now 4 of the Specter Faulds. Not a bad haul over these last few events, but damn I wish Gree would take a break. Do we really have to multiple event running every day of the week? Come on, how about some down time? How about just one event a week and maybe you take a week off? I’m all for playing this game, but damn, it is possible to have too much of a good thing.

Epic Loot from the Epic Boss Thomas P Stanton – Crime City

We did another great job of kicking the @#$% out of Thomas P Stanton and achieved both the Syndicate goal of 300 kills over the 4 days and the Individual victory of 100 kills. With that I grabbed the Stanton Glasses and the Stanton Knuckles. That’s an impressive combination. Level 100 was a bit of a pain as it took 7 FA hits to take him down – a lot more than I expected.

I almost immediately coupled this with the 187 Blaster from the Syndicate battle. Hell, I didn’t even know this was a reward. I was just deploying troops when this popped up out of nowhere. Seemed almost too easy to be honest., but hey I won’t complain. It has nice stats and I will certainly take the -1% Bank Deposit Fee Reduction reward.

Speaking of, a lot of people say to keep cash on hand rather than putting it in the bank. That seems like a dangerous game to me. Considering how unbalanced the Rivals List seems to be, it sounds like a surefire way to go bankrupt. I still find players with nearly half my stats are still able to rob me. They’re able to sneak in an pilfer tens of millions from my LTBs. There’s no way I’m walking around with all that cash in hand. I’d rather lose a few million on each transaction and keep the bulk of my cash versus losing hundreds of millions by carrying it around. Some people swear by this strategy, but looks to be far to big a gamble for me.

New Limited Time Building – Killer Condos Upgrade Cost and Payout

imageSo here it is, the new LTB from Gree and Crime City. This one is for the Killer Condos event and a building of the same name – quite simply Killer Condos. It’s a lower level LTB which is already causing people to gnash their teeth because it’s too low level for them. Of course when the building is outrageously priced, everyone complains about that too. Anyway, the base building will cost $10 million and generates $64599 every 12 hours. The footprint is quite reasonable so you shouldn’t have trouble finding a space for it. The Reward is a Racer Jacket with 26053 Attack and 21315 Defense +1% Explosive Attack. That’s a pretty decent prize for the cost of the building, at least initially.

If you want to upgrade this all the way it will cost you $2.5 billion with a payout of $1.9 million every 12 hours. If you translate that into real numbers it means you will never recoup the money you spent on this thing.  You will have to collect from it several hundreds times in order to pay for it. Ah, but that’s not the point of these little LTBs is it?

Things are only marginally better if you have all the modifiers. It’ll cost $1.2 billion to take it all the way. But of course unless you have a vault of gold lying around you won’t be able to do it before time runs out. That’s just the way it goes. Again, this isn’t that great of a building. This isn’t going to help my IPH and I’ll end up tossing away a billion dollars on it. For low level players it could boost the IPH, at least for the first couple of levels. The $10 million initial purchase isn’t too bad, but the upgrade costs are prohibitive. I think this may turn out to be a building nobody really wants. I already have one in the works and will put the cash into it to get the prizes. But I will be pouring my money into other building upgrades now that we have the +1 Building Upgrade prize from the Anniversary Anarchy event.

But the question is, is anyone out there going to upgrade 2 of these at the same time? Toward the end I might do that, but my Tsar’s Teahouse, Fine Jewely Store and several other previous LTBs need to get some upgrades. I play to have 2 buildings in constant upgrade from this point forward.

So what do you think? This building any good? Does it fit in with your IPH plans? Can you upgrade it all the way before time runs out?

Gree offers ability to upgrade multiple buildings at once as a low level prize – Crime City

Wow! I never thought I would see the day that Gree would allow us to upgrade multiple buildings at once, but here it is as the Anniversary Party Favor in the Anniversary Anarchy event.

Depending on when you started playing, you may have seen this given out as a Top Tier prize in one of the Syndicate Battles. In fact, the Extra Building Upgrade and the Upgrade Reduction Cost modifiers haven’t been seen in ages. But here it is as the prize for what is basically completing the Beginner level of this event. Good heavens!

And it does indeed allow you to upgrade 2 buildings at once. I wasted no time in starting another upgrade. I chose the Tsar’s Teahouse. It almost seems like this prize is a mistake!

Of course, this also means that LTB events are going to get a lot harder and I bet we have to get both of them to a certain level in order to win a prize. Since it’s available to everyone, there will obviously be some catches.

But in the mean time this means a huge boost to IPH. Those at the lower level should be able to upgrade their hood and generate some massive revenue in short order. For those of us with Billions in cash sitting in the bank, it means we will be burning through those reverse. I fully expect the cost of new buildings to go through the roof and the LTB goals to be utterly unattainable without exceptional reserves of cash AND big vaults of gold. I have no doubt that players with 10 or even 20 Billion in cash will blow through that before we hit the middle of next month. Considering the upper upgrades of the LTB were $1 or $2 Billion per level and you can have those running every other day while working on other buildings, the streets will run green. You could easily spend $5 Billion in a week without blinking.

It’s a fantastic prize and long overdue, but I wonder what this will mean to build time and build cost as we look to the future? Plan your upgrades, don’t get carried away and bury yourself with this new toy.
