Forum Rules [Updated 12/21/2016]

MAIN RULES OF THE FORUMS

Please respect your community. Respect each other as you all enjoy the same thing – The Game.

We encourage open and friendly discussion of the game and the Community. Moderators and Staff have final decisions on all matters, and are here to make sure that the Community remains a friendly, fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups.

It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.

PURPOSE OF THE FORUMS

These forums provide an area for constructive player discussions of the game. It also allows players to
help each other identify bugs and issues, and help each other reproduce and resolve them.

These forums are not the most direct way to contact support. If you’re having an issue with your game and you need direct assistance, please tap on the FAQ/Support tab within the game.

CHANGES OR IMPROVEMENT

Please make sure to stay updated on these rules by reviewing this page from time to time.

SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.â€‌
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flameâ€‌, “troll.â€‌ or “hazeâ€‌.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law
- Do not post anything illegal under U.S. law, or encourage other users to break the laws of the U.S. or their country of residence.
- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy
- Do not post any private emails or private messages unless you have the explicit permission of each person involved in the exchange.
- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)
- Do not post any information covered by a non-disclosure agreement or beta testing agreement. Even if you somehow have inside information about our competitors, for legal reasons we don’t want to hear it.
- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create �sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

    It's worth noting that none of the Rares repeat themselves aside from Kate showing up in Westside and once again in Columbia.
    Fox is the Colombia Rare.

    As many of you know Westside is the only Dice Job that offers two Uncommons one common along with one Rare Lt.
    Apart from SoCal, Amsterdam, Colombia, Hong Kong, Mexico, Las Vegas, Japan, and Dubai. In fact exactly half the dice jobs have this combo of rarities.

    Needless to say it's the best option for our energy and has been since the game's beginning.
    This is true, because Westside is cheaper, at 150, than any of the others (at 185 plus).

    Heck, Italy doesn't even have a Rare Lt. to offer. The staple of the Dice Job since Caine made his appearance in Midtown and Italy doesn't have it.
    Joey seems to be one of those "Uncommmons that the game treats as Rare".

    Seems worthwhile pointing out the wiki page again - http://underworld-empire.wikia.com/w...nge_Jobs_Table :-)

        I do agree that challenge job is boring and not well balanced. We will see what we can do about that. It's not a high priority task in the queue I have to say.

        I don't agree you get crappy LTs from the challenge jobs. With the same cost and 2000 energy, challenge job is way cheaper to get Uncommon/Rares compared to crate.

        Regarding the recombinator and common LTs, I don't know when they were introduced, but simply changing them back is not possible. We may tweak it when we start rebalancing it in future.
        Also Duke, could you please look into something for me? Has the rare LT drop % been lowered slightly? For the last couple years it has been almost smack on at 8% (there was an old guru post about it, and I can confirm based on over 1200 collects). However, my last 280 collects on westside have gotten me 17 Kates (almost right on 6%). 280 is a pretty decent sample size, so I would imagine if the true % was unchanged at 8%, I should have dropped a few more Kates.

        Could also just be a long run of pretty bad luck, but my pessimism tells me that the drop rate may have changed.

          Burned through another VIP worth of refills on westside. Drop rate has DEFINITELY dropped to 6% for Kate. My Lotus drop rate is up to a staggering 25%. Refusing to spend any more money until a dev confirms that they steathily decreased the rate. So annoyed right now, just dropped 3 Lotuses in a row.
