The story of disaster

Landlords! Yesterday we announced the tough change we had to make and we decided to cut some of the in-game money. As you probably saw, we are returning your lost coins and refunding your previously sold properties, but we would also like to tell you the story of how all of this happened.


Some time ago a in-game bug created an insane amount of money. To get an majestic price of your bets or properties may have looked like a lot of fun at first, but it made the game unplayable at some levels and devastated the marketplace. The cashtank of many players was filled thousand times over capacity, bids were impossible to reach for most of the users. Something had to be done as soon as possible, or the game would die in a matter of weeks. To take the cash away was an almost impossible choice, but we didn’t see a better solution, since the situation required immediate action. By doing this we’ve saved the game, but we’ve also created a problem for our users.

 

At this point we would like to sincerely tell you – we are extremely sorry. If we wouldn’t have done this, there would be no more Landlord Real Estate Tycoon to play next month. Our first step was to heal the economy, our next one – to give you 1000 coins for the (Black) Golden Friday. No strings attached, just coins for everyone. It is crucial to remember, that this ISN’T A COMPENSATION, it’s just a gift. We will be returning your lost properties or unfairly taken money that wasn’t fake, and if this isn’t possible, you are going to get the accurate amount in coins. It’s going to take some time, but we’re going to work day at night to fix this situation. You can send us an email at alice@wearerealitygames.com with your situation, but if you won’t – we will still do our best to offer you a compensation.

 

    

SOLVED – fake properties issue

Landlords! Thanks to your quick reaction we’ve been able to fight a worrying plague – fake properties. Our recent changes will prevent these outrageous acts of vandalism in the future.

As a result we’ve decided to drop support for all unverified properties on Foursquare. We are strongly recommending to stop purchasing obviously fake properties and if you’ve acquired them already, we encourage you to sell then as quick as possible. You can still add properties but they will appear in the game once they’re verified on Foursquare. This process of database cleaning may take up to several weeks, but will solve with this issue for good.

We would also like to point out that purchasing in game money from other players is illegal and players connected to this activity will be banned immediately (buyers and sellers). We’ve received a lot of complains from players, who tried to acquire in-game currencies or places from unknown individuals and despite paying – never received anything. Our strong standpoint is dictated by the need to defend our users. Should you get any shady offers from other players – please, let us know as soon as you can at feedback@landlord.com

We’re certain that these actions will increase your playing satisfaction. Thank you for you continuous support and understanding!

Ultimate city sale!

Landlords! We appreciate your feedback, that’s why we’ve prepared a long-desired feature – cheaper cities – accessible for everyone!

You’ve asked us in the past months for a handful of upgrades and fixes. Among them were the newly installed daily login bonus and a more user friendly interface. But one of the most desired changes were cheaper cities – especially when it comes to coins. We’ve decided to fulfill your wish and for the next few days cities and special venues cost only 20% of their base value. But that’ not all – the usual concern was also the accessibility of cities, that were difficult to find, as they only appeared near the center of the real existing settlement. From now on you’ll have at least 3 cities at the top of the “Buy properties” list, so you’ll not be forced to plan a difficult terrain search.

This weekend we’ve also prepared out standard 50% more coins campaign. It is always a good time to have a lot of coins, that’s why we want to help you to acquire them in a higher number. We’re also sending out personalized emails to our most devoted players, asking them for feedback and offering them special coin deals. If you would like to be part of this project, please send us your email address to karolina@wearerealitygames.com

Remember, if you have any other ideas or propositions to make our game better, let us know. We always appreciate your feedback and reviews and we’re always available for you on feedback@landlord.com or on Facebook. Don’t hesitate to send us your insights and opinions and if you like the game – share it with other people helping us to grow the game and prepare a ground for other upcoming projects from Reality Games! Stay tuned!

Halloween inbound!

This weekend sets the starting point for the Halloween fever! The festivity of the dead may not sound very pleasant, but only positive things await you in Landlord Tycoon. As a start – 50 coins for free for everyone!

But this humble gift is obviously not everything. The main dish will be our 50% more coins campaign. It is always a good moment to acquire at least a handful (or more!) of coins to have them ready for an expansion. Coins are not vital for your empire, because our policy is to keep Landlord in a model opposing the pay to win policy, but they can certainly help you to speed up the process of expansion or get things, that may be unreachable if you’re not having a substantial coin number, that you saved up from the beginning of the game. These extraordinary places ore mostly cities or special venues. You may think – “yeah, it’s impossible to buy these places or be high up on the leaderboard if I don’t have a lot of cheese”. Well, this may seem true at first, but let us share an insight with you – the player with the highest level in Landlord – who achieved level 53 – never bought any coins!

On these festive days we’ve also prepared a boost for cemetery visitors. The final resting places of the dead will definitely bring you more income since there will be a lot of visitors. But we want to go even further and DOUBLE this already naturally boosted number! It will be highly profitable to own cemeteries for the next week, that we can promise you!

We believe that this Halloween will be able to kick start your empire again and provide you with all the necessary tools to become a leading Landlord who bathes in money and coins! Stay tuned on Facebook to be getting all the crucial information – you’ll find a link at the top of the page. In the following weeks you can expect some totally new weekend promotions, so this should give you a definite reason to like our Facebook page!

So, there is only one thing left to say… Happy Halloween!

Got a Landlord Game-related story to tell?

Hello Landlords,

How would you like to get 2500 coins for free? How would you like to become famous in the Landlord players community? You can with the premier of our new event.

We are always monitoring your reviews on the App stores. However, we don’t know much more about how you interact with the game, or how the game interacts with you. We would like to know more about the people in front of the screens.

We would like to know something cool that has happened to you because you played Landlord Real Estate Tycoon. Please write a short story of this and send it to paul@wearerealitygames.com . We will choose our favorite and award the writer of the story 2500 coins and post their story on our blog and their selfie on our social media feeds.

Examples could include how Landlord helped your business, how Landlord helped you out while you were travelling, or …here is an example:

I am about to get married to the love of my life and I have Landlord to thank for it. I was a frequent visitor to a local bar because I owned a few shares of it. And I wanted to help myself collect some rent. One day, a cute guy came up to me and noticed that I was doing some property maintenance in my portfolio and told me that he played Landlord too. He was also a shareholder of that same bar. As a result, we got talking and one thing led to another and before long, were were engaged. Other people use apps like Tinder for dates. Never in my life would I expect Landlord to become our dating app.

Details of the contest:

Length of story should be 70 – 200 words.

The deadline for all story is November 23, 2016.

The winner will be announced on November 25, 2016.

We are looking forward to your stories.

Sincerely,
The Landlord Team
