  1. Or even, will there be an event this week? If there is no event, we can plan for no event! If it turns out there is nothing planned for this week after all this mystery and waiting you will have a lot of pretty annoyed customers ... again!!

    Nnijas Stolen Now?

    FG, can you check the levels of the ninjas you have given out, I'm told they are max level .. irrespective of what the players won!!!
  3. The problem isn't Flothaboss himself, he is a decent enough guy, it's what the account has become. Once upon a time he was in the same ally as me. He was at that time an OK enough raider, nothing special probably not in the top ten or so in that ally, made some good videos though. Suddenly he became this raiding god, funnily enough this happened near enough overnight after the introduction of Uber items and forges! He has always since this time tried to remain in a top ally as it seems he always wants the best boosts etc, flitting between one or another of the top four or five. His forges became somewhat accelerated when he became an active mod for FG, maybe he was being paid for his videos as well as his mod duties at that time? Now he is in active employment with FG it seems the resources he can pull to 'feed' his account are pretty much unlimited, all pals and items available and maxed in minutes. Whilst his videos are informative they are also, as they have been for some time, pretty much impractical in terms of the average player as a learning tool. How many players have all pals? Of those how many have them all at max, never mind the uber items he 'somehow' owns and the forges he has applied to them and his spells. In reality the Flothboss account is actually wrecked, it has next to no credibility when compared to the vast majority of players accounts, it's sad to be honest. I know the clock can't be turned back for the Flotha account, but he would do far better raiding in game with a new mid level account, growing it up, suffering the lack of this and that like the majority of players do, proving what can be done without maxed gear and pals. Maybe the Flotha account can be wheeled out now and then to showcase stuff, but never actually in the game itself, maybe on the test server? Just to be straight, I'm not slating Flotha here, as I said before he is a decent guy, what we have now with him joining the Flare team and using his Personal account in game is a conflict of interest, the only practical solution is for the Flotha account to become inactive in the real game and stick to test raids, and demonstrations videos.
  4. C'mon, that's unfair why does the RR forum have to put up with him, he is probably even worse informed about the mechanics of that game!!

    Level Madness / The Gap to VL

    I've watched this post grow over the last few days, it twists and turns from it's original topic to beating high level bases and even has a POV history lesson thrown in for good measure! I have been about since day one, that is day one on android, which was a little while coming after iOS, (but before windows). The days when 3aTTaBi was the top dog, MasterE, NikkoEsq, MiSchreiber and numerous others, were all yet to make their mark and the travesty that is alliances had yet to arrive to help push the money making machine that is FG to the depths it currently stoops. The game has always been in one way or another pay to win, in the beginning though you didn't need to take out a small mortgage to be able to be competitive. Create alliances, introduce peer pressure and team rivalry then sit back and watch the cash flow in!! Back to the topic, in terms of VL or any other alliance levelling up quickly, it is irrelevant. The few alliances that they fight with, will, in the short to medium term get there too, if the members of VL are happy to invest their money in such a way it really is up to them, as has been stated the team decided to do it, you can't make a team NOT donate if they want to. Though I am no great fan of the additional levels or the way the game is heading I must give Kudos to VL for pulling together so strongly so quickly. What also needs to be taken into account is how/why or why these 'rich' alliances can afford to level so fast. Success breeds success is one element, also investors tend to go where other investors are, if you put £100 a week into RR but no one else in your ally puts anything in, you end up with an alliance that isn't going anywhere fast and often a bunch of parasites that are just there for the ride. Guys who invest, in general, will be attracted to alliances where there are other guys that are also willing to invest, hence you end up with 'rich' alliances who have numerous benefactors’. Even so there will be numerous others who can't donate as much in physical money, but can make up for it in organising, finding new recruits, PR work (Cromka's forte) maybe some of these are also more talented players that can win every raid. The real secret though is to create a team, a team that will fight for one another, do what it takes to win and not fight with each other What Cromka says about weaker alliances being able to beat VL is in part true, I have seen it, NA did it, through very good use of tactics and the willingness of every member to scroll to beat a base if required. Sadly it isn't as easy to do now, Skull perks have taken that option out of the equation, My guess, and it is a guess, is that VL, Apoc and RL and some others have a full team of members with skull perks in excess of 32%+, I don't think many, if any, non top 10 teams can boast that. Hence in a war with VL even if every member of a lower ranked team scrolled hard against their bases and won every raid, the alliance would still end up shy of skulls and have wasted their gems, so why fight! Barring a bit of clever tactical use of loser bonus the reality is skull perk in effect wins every time, take the most useless of raiders with a huge (34%+) skull perk and the willingness to scroll as much as is needed to 100% win, multiply that by 65 and you have a winning team, even if they leave their bases open throughout the season, note the lack of the word skill, it is irrelevant. Sad, but it’s a fact! I know it’s been a bit longwinded and gone off on the odd tangent, but what I guess I am really trying to say is, don't take any notice of what other alliances invest in, alliance level aren't the issue the only important investment you can make as a team is in all of your skull perk items, gel your team as a TEAM and have plenty of gems ready to scroll with if you want to play at the top, if you are not willing to do that, let the top be the top without criticising. P.S. On a personal note I’d really would like to see that sodding VL Max level wolf beast neutered.
  7. Do you actually read what people write? You write utter twaddle on here every day, today I actually pointed out the fact that what you say and what you do is very different, in terms of multiple attacks. One comment, you now are accusing me of attacking you at every opportunity in every comment. Well you make lots of comments daily, go find me the ones I have attacked you on 'every' time. Persecution complex? I guess I should do what many others have done and not bother coming on here, now king warriornator has staked his claim to full ownership of the forum.
  8. Non stop!!! I've not commented on a single post of your since that time how ever many months ago it was, I rarely come on here, to be honest coming on the forum in general is pretty pointless most of the time, FG never listen to anything that's said and you just go on and on and on about stuff that you know little about!! Don't make a mountain out of a molehill, you said you loved being harassed, I pointed out that you have changed your mind since when it happened to you, simple!! And for the record, no, like most people on here I don't like you, and your self proclaimed expertise in the game, but for the main I don't bother to comment.
  9. Lols, Mags didn't give a damn, no interest in trophies, more often trying to dump them than gain. You can come on here sticking up for him, which is noble, but he continually changes his mind on what is good, bad, how to play the game, etc so he is likely to get a bit of grief now and then. And I don't think you know the full reason, I do, using that language to a lady is totally inappropriate!
  10. ^^ You didn't "love it" when Mags did it to you!!

    Will Free Ticket Cooldown Time Change?

    They made adjustments whether it be through pressure or to protect their market share. What they didn't do was sell you a hamburger, then take away the meat or sell shoes then tell you the soles are too good and remove them. Hence reputable, you get what you paid for and keep it, unlike some companies I can mention!!

    Will Free Ticket Cooldown Time Change?

    Yes but the above are reputable customer oriented companies that actually listen to and care about customers opinion!!

    "No you are all wrong, FG is right, they know what we want and need, stop complaining, you are just players and of no real importance, just shut up and spend your gems!!"
  15. 60 days, no response, tells a story, FG don't care about their customers, shame on them.
