    I also think crafting can be affected a great deal by how much a player spends on items as well...... I have spent some but not as much as you might think for a level 12,000 (well, 6 levels away at the time I am typing this). I am not even Alexandrite yet and I have been playing over 3 years. And most of what I have spent has gone to stamina refills to level vs buying items. For me, I just finished crafting 1,483 Harbour Ferrys about 2 months ago and have been working on Marmot Rifles with 1,038 so far and sill need about 650. That puts my lowest item in weapons as 113/115 and will eventually be 113/122 when done with the Marmot Rifles. And vehicles is 118/112 with the Harbour Ferrys being my lowest item. I still need to work on armor items but the boss drop from Lunar with the Spaceghost Armors still seems to be the best attack armor and I would need another 30,000 drops to be full on elites with 130 attack. For Armor defense, instead of crafting the Elite Spaceghost Armors with 106 defense OR the craft for Maple Leaf Toques with 107, the #5 job drop in Victoria is the Armored Briefcase with 108 defense.

    So in summary - for ME, crafting was good for vehicles in Victoria and still is at the moment for weapons for another 2 months. As far as armor, crafting is worthless for defense compared to the job drop I can get in Victoria. And it will take forever and a ton of stamina to get 30,000 boss drops to craft enough for better attack armor. I am hoping a new city will provide a few armor drops that might make the need to craft elites from lunar less important.

    it is ridiculous that you can't get to the top loyalty tier after YEARS of playing without spending THOUSANDS of dollars.

    Just levelled up to 7970, and have a new (useless) workshop item:

    You have successfully crafted the following item: Thermal Bodysuit Thermal Bodysuit 102 Attack 96 Defense Quantity Crafted : x1 You used the following items to complete this Blueprint: Polar Commando GearShining Knight ArmorBurnoose x1 Thermal Bodysuit has been Added to your inventory. x1 Polar Commando Gear has been Removed from your inventory. x1 Shining Knight Armor has been Removed from your inventory. x1 Burnoose has been Removed from your inventory.

    What a joke, the polar commando gear is 100/94, so only 2 extra on att/def???

    In all do respect, there has to be some form of reward to those that have spent money on this app, making it a viable business worth their time. To often in society people feel entitled, the loyalty program was created for all, however its more rewarding for those that have rewarded kano for their efforts.....Im ok with that!

    I just entered San Fran and quit crafting when I hit Rio. Spending Billions to craft an item that only raises att or def 1 or 2 points doesn't really make a lot of sense. I boss fight a lot. I've only unlocked the Railgun so far and it raises my def by 9 and does nothing for att. Seeing as how this is a craft off a boss fight owner loot, suppose I'm going to see much the same as has been posted above once I get to the other unlocks.

    Why make good crafting items, when the goal is to get people to spend?

    I agree with you on this xipe and i too have brought up many of the same suggestions and they have yet to response to any of it.

    at my level which is about a thousand levels above you, there is no crafting to be done at all, some of the new drops I cant even find yet on my fighting strength lists. and the gift items are a joke, making meaningless memorial gifts and the glided toilet with stats of 9/9 or lower are a joke. what good are they, you cant use them on the fight strength list like you used to be able too when i first started this game.

    you cant use them really for crafting once you reach a certain point, only newbies or very low levels can use them most of the time. they just sit in our inventory taking up space and gathering dust. prime example, the drivers shoes, I got over ten thousand of them and they are useless.

    I suggested using gifts like this to help clear out the thousands of items we have to search thru just to find something to craft if there are anything. even the newest city boss drops are useless right now along with the job items, cuz we cant use them until they actually goof the fight strength list without making our selfs weaker. and by them we wont be able to use them at all becuz the limited items will have better stats.

    so unless you spend thousands of dollars like one person has done, you wont get anywhere in the game and like you said this game will become another mafia wars and disappear, just like the dodo bird.

    stock holders will start selling off their stocks to recover any lost they can and then everyone wil lhave to move again to other games. myself, I've already quit playing Vikings clan, pirates, clan and zombie slayers becuz of these problems and i have also cut way down on my spending too. how is kano gonna last with one person maybe spending 100 grand or so when they start to lose a million in its place.

    the now strongest player in the game who bought their way into power doesn't even want any of the top bosses, they says whatever they needs they'll just buy all the limited or higher gear. they have not even crafted anything, said crafting is completely useless to them and at the time, they were only in the 6000 levels and they are almost higher than me or will be by the time the next raid comes out

    to get people to spend, you gotta make them happy and wanting to spend money.

    Maybe there is hope for this after all. Kano released the "buff up" (although not for LCN), which I don't believe was previously announced.

    Yes there is hope, and all the fairy tales are true.

  15. Yawn.. Nothing new here... Same story since early 2015
    Boss Drops at my level are worthless. In fact I'd need to get 3 cities higher for them to be useful. That would be Ant.
    Job drops have been worthless since Havana. They just collect dust.
    Crafting has been worthless since Havana. I have a good collection of Golden Toilets and tribute gifts.

    How many players left this week??

    the thing is once you get to a level that you can actually use the items they are not very good at all, when a item changes the stats by a max of 10 to 15 points you really dont see a difference when you are dealing with 1 million in stats for items. The formula they used was good years ago the difference was 1/3rd the job compared to limited but the difference then was only a small amount the items grew 3 to 5 times stronger that you could buy which in turn also means the gap between limited and job items etc, is alot wider than what it was the difference is 100 points to 300 or even 400 upwards i didnt do the math dont think i need to i did a estimate but the gap between the 2 items has gotten really big. and of course Kano see's us using them but when you replace a item say with 123 def with a item 125 you really aint making much of a difference compared to same item being changed out for a limited that changes from 123 to 520 the max now that is almost 400 more so you would have to have 200 of the items with a 125 stat to make the difference for 1 bought item at 520 this is what the players see the numbers between free items and bought items have never been this far apart. Why cant kano see what we are saying and just offer some very nice crafting items that could bring some people back to the table fighting again instead of them getting tired of constantly losing and decide to leave.

    It seems kano does not understand that the new drops are almost useless once we reach certain location, and they become even more useless with each location release. Crafing is also pointless with small enhancements for big amounts.

    We should stop posting about this, we have seen kano taking actions on this (wich was nothing good / important from my point view) they do NOT care, simple and plain

    OK made it to my second crafting item (the chain) and it's completely useless for me to craft any of these.

    I know two personal friends are quitting this week and their accounts will be deleted, that's a shame cuz after all their hard work, they wont be able to get their accounts back if they did change their minds.
