Governor Schwarzenegger’s Game “Mobile Strike” Is A Griefer’s Paradise. Caveat Emptor.

Mobile Strike is a smart phone game available on Apple and Google and promoted by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The game, a basic base builder wargame with limited combat options damages itself with an out of control gold purchasing (in Application) economy and powerful guild alliances that seem to be maximum level that simply grief lower level guilds.

While you seemingly can partake in individual combat without coming to the notice of the larger guilds, once you join a small group of players players from these MASSIVE guilds teleport to scout (untracable teleports) and attack you.

If you try to put up a fight, more and more player teleport in, and simply swamp you.  They can position right on top of you with ready reinforcements and willingness to attack guilds with players (a self imposed rule by one game is level 14 or above is ok to attack) with massively powered guild members attacking targets they are 8, 10 or more levels higher than.

How large are these guilds?

Apparently of 300 players or more in a super Guild Alliance that rules the individual “state” (with state to state warfare possible) through massive expenditures of time (simply clicking what you buy actually takes time) and money (the game quickly pushes $99.00 purchases to level up.)

The ads flash on the main screen and are promoted every time you log in or the smart phone wakes up from sleep mode.

This is one such example.

The game starts off relatively slow, and with a $4.99 and a $19.99 purchase seems fun as you gain small but material advantages over local bases and can win combat missions.

But the game is swamped with $99.00 package offers, billion and trillion point sales (when you are being give in game 300 point “gifts” by the system) and continuous advertising to purchase those packages to get “legendary” equipment and necessary to compete upgrades.

The game sells 5,000 day “speed up” packages (otherwise you wait 5,000 days for one simple upgrade in a game with thousands up upgrade possibilities) so you can see how purchasing packages is necessary to even play the game at a sufficient level to even advance.

What does a mega guild alliance look like?

One such alliance is in state 635.  (The game uses s (state), y, z locations) The alliance of B#R, B#R2 & A99* rules the state.

Located just southwest of what is the “state capital” the guild alliance “hive” is massive.

The location of the guild “hive” is S: 635 X:  252  Y:  470

Their leader, Big Bears, is located just south of the state control point easily reached by app by pressing the state capital button.

 

After about 2 weeks in game, and a $4.99 and $19.99 purchase I am seeing waits in the 30 days that necessitate use of a “speed up” item to complete construction otherwise that upgrade takes up 1 of the 2 slots I have available for those types of upgrades (research) for those number of days.

If not, don’t expect to take part in much beyond local small solo combat and building your own base at slower and slower rates until you realize the game only wants your cash, and not for you to have fun.

How to solve the griefer problem?  Teleport griefers that are a certain percentage of power above their targets out of the state.

First offense:  The guilds griefer gets a warning.
Second offense:  Griefer gets teleported out of state with no return.
Third offense:  Griefer and Guilds officers are teleported out of state with no return.
Fourth offense:  Guild alliance teleported to random states, broken up, with no return and no ability to reform.

Pick appropriate targets and have fun.  Don’t grief noobs because you can.

I realize that selling gold in game became necessary because farmers in MMO’s figured out how to farm and sell gold out of game for their own profit.

However this game has gone completely the opposite way with it, and it destroys the playability at fun at sufficient level when noobs would want to join guilds to have small competitive wars with other like sized and powered guilds.

It’s fun for a bit, but purchases are necessary.  If you like base builders and have oodles of cash, give it a try.

This game is a griefers paradise.

Caveat Emptor.

The Ghost of Eugene Debs. #Politics In The US Remains Cyclical

In the 1930’s after the collapse of the stock market and mass economic collapse, socialism rose and was partially embraced as a temporary measure by FDR and Congress with the “New deal.”

During that time labor protests racked much of America as workers fought for what they saw as their rights against entrenched business  interests.

The recent Presidential election has once again exposed a rift between the populist leftist wing of the Democrat party (temporarily represented by Bernie Sanders) & the corporate, big bank friendly/war exporting wing of Hillary Clinton.

With Silicon Valley leadership (Jack Dorsey, etc)  preaching leftism and inclusiveness while not actually delivering on the results (poor hiring practices leaving minorities out in the cold, homelessness and a corporate aesthetic taking over San Francisco rather than a vibrant and eclectic city) socialism is once again making a comeback.

At the same time high tech, through the use of borderless (largely unregulated) apps ( like Uber)  undermines even BASIC employment protections that most Americans think of as basic, routine and theirr rights.

IE being an employee and not an independent contractor when you don’t actually control the work you do, workers’ compensation (itself earned through compromise with business interests) and perhaps a dash of time off.

This is hardly unexpected when those same states leave youth uneducated, incarcerated at massive rates and quite frequently jobless, yet without entrepreneurial skills to make their own way.

It’s as if the business left is pulling the wool over the eyes of everyone and expect to have their whole cake and eat it too.

And we all know what happened to Marie Antoinette.

We now have a President elect that’s actually less conservative than Hillary Clinton, yet somehow despised by the left due to the Democrats attempts to rig the election for Hillary Clinton?

How will this play out?  Well I expect actual jobs bills similar in nature to a new “new deal.”

And the self appointed “cultural elites” like Bob Chipman, AKA @the_moviebob?  

Folks like Bob are the same old hate from the Bay Area and Orange County that previous generations of Dust Bowlers felt in the 1930’s and 1940’s.

In other words, politics is cyclical and same as it ever was.

There’s no reason to fear putting people to work who need work and will work.  None.

Will the Democratic party find it’s soul and actually function to protect workers, or will it remain tied to big banks, and tech while lying to their own electorate publically while maintaining private positions?

Will the GOP stop teaching young activists to abolish the Commerce Department even as Congress has explicit authority to regulate interstate commerce?

“to regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes.”

Time will tell.

Is Trump Hoover or Eisenhower?

The Hatred & Disdain of @HillaryClinton For America Is On Full Display On $TWTR

The “Alt right” is not a group.

There are no meetings, sign up forms, secret handshakes, etc.

Yet Hillary, herself a national security threat due to her ignorance of and disdain for rule of law and cybersecurity sees fit to label a significant portion of America as a “hate movement.”

 

Astoundingly she ignores her own ties to the KKK, both in her love for former Senator Robert Byrd, and the open endoresement given to her by current Grand Dragon of the KKK, Will Quigg.

The genesis of the “alt right” actually started in the late 1990’s with the labeling of what used to be Top 40 music, ie rock, pop punk, as “alternative” and Hip Hop and Disney Pop taking over the Top 40 airwaves.

Current Democrats rhetoric has simply ridden that shift in sentiment as exhibited by former GOP and current Democrats advocate Brianna Wu, herself a leader of a targeted abuse mob on Twitter.

 

I am not sure who appointed Brianna Wu as guardian of what’s appropriate to say, but she clearly attacks people she wants to, knowingly, with Jack Dorsey’s tacit ok and endorsement.

Clearly Twitter itself has been weaponized to attack anyone that is not a Democrat (and even Democrats will be targeted by the targeted abuse mob led by Brianna Wu, and her compatriot Randi Lee Harper if they decide to.)

 

Ms. Wu, who is bills herself as the “ISIS of Feminism” believes she and 4 other feminsits are changing the future of the world.

Even as she finds women in movies offensive.

Her opinion is at best bizarre, or reflected in her upbringing in a cultish family in Mississippi.

Essentially Jack Dorsey has turned Twitter over to abusers.

 

Randi Lee Harper has herself propagated ISIS on twitter, and has her own targeted abuse mob that responds to her commands, as Jack Dosey consciously fails to fight terrorism according to the UK’s Home Affairs Committee.

All in all, Hillary Clinton, Jack Dorsey and their band of hateful mob abusers exemplified by Brianna Wu, Randi Lee Harper and Zoe Quinn hate a significant portion of American citizens and are given a platform to abuse people on Twitter and social media.

Internet Marketer And #EmpireKred Leader #StevenKrohn In His Own Words. (Traffic With No Sales?!?) #EaV #SocialSales

Steven Krohn, leader at EmpireKred, and producer of massive traffic according to Richard Krawczyk (also a leader of EmpireKred) knows he cannot deliver sales to his customers.

As Steven Krohn is a network leader at EmpireKred, it’s clear to me that EmpireKred is a market of marketers.

Each desperate for sales of their own product (for the most part) each spreading the word, but not sales, for other members of EmpireKred.

And some, like Nance Larson unwilling to help spread the word, but simply creates her own “missions” that other people have not run.

Service

Scam

 

EmpireKred Player Champion Lynn O’Connell knows this basic truth, as she’s stated,

We have MANY small business owners who thrive on Empire.Kred and use it as a way to learn the techniques that will drive people to their business. But, realistically, running a mission here is not going to get more people in to buy pizza in Des Moines.

OJ Simpson Is Miserable In Prison!

Perhaps OJ should remember his mission to find Nicole’s killer and recall that he didn’t find said killer on the golf course.

I think the killer was on that golf course, and it’s likely the killer is in the very prison OJ is in!

Perhaps OJ can find the culprit now?

      #1 OJ is Not Happy

Apparently, he has been calling all of his remaining friends and family complaining about his constant misery in prison.

For Someone Who Detests Liars… (#EmpireKred “Goon Squad”) #EaV #socialmedia

For someone who claims to detest liars EmpireKred Team Leader Nance Larson (@nancelarson) sure does lie a whole lot.

EmpireKred is best avoided until their abusive leaders, including Team Leader Nance Larson is removed from any authority, and possibly removed as a customer.

Team Leader Nance Larson, I believe, is part of the “Goon Squad” first reported by Chris Voss of The Chris Voss Show, nationally recognized social media expert,

Over 5 posts on my blogs I documented issues with Empire Avenue, from their rogue volunteers, running a “wall of shame” on Brands, attacking Brands reputations online, not answering complaints, having a “goon squad” of endorsed volunteers attacking customers who complained, refusing to discipline internally thereby encouraging more attacks on Brands, etc. What I witnessed was the worst travesty in the annals of customer service I have ever seen. After a month of private discussions with EA to change things, I went public. Only then did they begin to change, but the attacks on me and others grew by their “goon squad.” In the end, I went to EA’s Angel Investor and EA had to shut down its Chat Room and Chat Mod “goons squad.” EA shamelessly has never apologized or produced it damning chat logs as promised by their CEO. This is one of those posts, you can read the rest by Search in the upper right for ‘Empire.’ Don’t play EA or if you do save your REAL money.

Gareth Davies is a “leader” at Empire Avenue (now EmpireKred.)

Gareth Davies was attacking people on the Empire Avenue forums, and when I reported it commenced bullying myself on Twitter and other platforms.

Gareth Davies in his own words can be hard to stop after he’s on a “rampage.”

Rather than stop the abuse, Nance Larson participated in the abuse.

Nance Larson Happy Father's Day

 

Nance Larson openly lied on Twitter about her position of authority at Empire Avenue.

Nance Larson Not In Marketing Department

 

Gareth Davies is a leader at Empire Avenue.

Nance Larson was promoted to Team Leader.

What is a “leader”?

Someone that paid to run Empire Avenue.

This was promoted on Twitter, facebook, WordPress and other social media outlets.

This is a truly amazing opportunity. The Empire Avenue Leaders will develop and test new marketing messages, new ways to recruit – and retain – new members, and new ways to interact with each other. Plus, we can explore new ways to make the game fun and rewarding for all.

Empire Avenue leadership

 

Why is Nance Larson tolerated at EmpireKred at all?

I don’t know.

But I do know she’s willing to lie and participate in doxing customers and try to participate in the cover up of an amazing record of abuse of customers in order to get her way.

Don’t spend any money at EmpireKred until people like Nance Larson are removed.

EmpireKred customers know this, so should the general public.

It remains astonishing that Empire Avenue was openly able to carry out this abusive vendetta on Twitter until about late 2/2015.

Since then, only Keith Gill still engages in this strange attempt to keep the astonishing abuse “off the record.”

Why did they simply not spend years attacking cusotmers?

And actually be a decent business?
