Chat Wall

83 comments

This is a simple page to help compensate for the lack of communication in the Monopoly City Streets game. I was considering installing a real-time widget, but from what I can tell most of them aren’t persistent if users aren’t live. A forum maybe considered in the future, but at the moment I’d rather not have the interactions too scattered.

The widget in the sidebar allows you to post without requiring an email and always shows the latest ‘chats’ up top. If you have a topical comment I’d encourage you to comment in the appropriate post, but my hopes for this page are for more generic communications that the game doesn’t quite allow for. ie…

Apologies. I attacked you just because you were on the leaderboard, I’ve learned my lesson, I’m sorry, please stop attacking me!

Trades. I’ve got roads to sell or give away before the end of the day, who wants them?

Enemies. This dude’s been incredibly annoying, can we all collectively drive them out of the game with hazards?

Confessions. I have 11 accounts and can’t stop playing with myself…

Stuff like that.

You can always find comment archived on this page as well. Enjoy.

Sold all my streets and quit. Why? 1. Hit with $85mil tax when I had $86mil in bank. 2. Server too slow, impossible to spend 300mil on $2mil hotels in less than an hour.

Tom, try using firefox instead of I.E. I couldn’t be lieve the change in speed, although I do agree with the point about the huge fines!

Also MoopMoop, Bonniebon, QSAQSA, SAQSAQ, NONONONO, NANUNANU I know you’re all the same person and I have no intention of trying to take your crown in Bolton. Sorry for the destruction last night but you’ve been attacking me for weeks and I’ve left you alone. I can destroy approx 25 buildings a day so please let’s just play nice?

Hi, the most expensive street I’ve seen, it is undeveloped by the owner, it’s price is 142M, I offered 900 M, but looks it is not for SALE.

8 MonopolyHQ October 15, 2009 at 12:36 pm

how can you tell it’s not for sale? if it seems like an inactive account, you could try putting an offer and if theydon’t respond in 7 days just have it..

I’m not so sure that bits working as intended. I put an offer on a street belonging to someone I have watched long enough to know they stopped playing.

Its been nearly 2 weeks now. No further login from other player, and the offer still sits on that street.

Hello,
I don’t now if that’s the correct way, but I have a problem with a multi-account player:

EPSYN
EPSYN2
EPSYN3
EPSYN4
EPSYN5
EPSYN6
EPSYN7
EPSYN8
EPSYN9
EPSYN10
EPSYN11
EPSYN12

This player has the bad mania of visit my streets.

Thanks in advance.

Hi all. For the last 2 days now, my use of MCS has been seriously limited. Whenever I try to sell or build a building on my streets, it tells me “It looks like someone else has beaten you to do this, please try again once they’re done”

And when I try to put an offer on a street it tells me I can only make 10 per day.. And I only tried to make that one lol.

Just to add to the wierdness, I have a mate who is experiancing the same prob, but on all but one of his streets.. Where everything works fine..

Is anyone else experiancing this or similar?

Hi. GOLD CREEK i have had the same issue on all my streets as well as my wife’s account.
All i can do is search and earn rent, I have noticed on the MCS homepage that nobody seams to be developing there are no GOLD PINS appearing on half of the world, from approx. Sudan across asia , Aust, and to the western side of the USA

Hey matt, well spotted that. I checked, and the street that works fine is in Europe.

Time to go make some overseas investments. I hope they fix the local server soon.

I’m having the same “someone beat you to do that” issue on my canada streets, which is causing my bank to fill up, but leaving my streets empty :( And I just switched from europe to canada :s

Same problem here. For the last two days, anytime I try to build or sell buildings, I get the “it looks like someone else has beaten you to this” popup. Is this a widespread issue?

20 sjinksie October 20, 2009 at 12:48 pm

just tried my one and only europe street and it lets me build whatever I want, so it’s some weird problem. I see those gold pins on the map around my area in canada though. Hope they fix it soon..

Same problem : cannot build/buy on US, Alaska and Australia streets. No problem with France and Africa

In the past I encountered lot of other problems.
Cannot imagine that a game can be put online with such problems. Almost every week new issues !!!

Are we beta testers for the new Monopoly City ?

Hope MCS team will fix such problems

Hey again peoples.

Left my browser on MCS page overnight and for whatever reason, it never refreshed the gold map pins, just kept stacking them on. When I reopened it just now, I thought it showed rather clearly which parts of the world are experiancing difficulty. I assume this is the effect Matt noticed in his earlier post.

Klicky4Picky.. http://i548.photobucket.com/albums/ii325/Supatard/MSC_deadzone.jpg

Personally I think were unofficial beta testers. And what began as a publicity stunt by Hasbro has turned into a publicity nightmare. Its one thing to put up with these sorts of breakdowns in a free game. But none of this is lending me any confidence in the upcoming game that I am expected to open my wallet for.

Hope they fix it soon. Meantime. Buy where it works.

Thats great! Cheers for that.

Here’s as good a spot as any to say thanks for putting this fansite together. You’ve done a great job with it, and its been so handy. One day game companies will learn the benefits of a strong player community. But until then its left to motivated people like yourself, who rarely get thanked.

So, well done and thank you. :)

I give up, the game looks fun but I can’t figure it out
I have tried it in IE, firefox & chrome.
I downloaded latest versions of flash and java.
I have tried harder then most people would be bothered too.

Monopoly you are losing players beause people can’t buy a property.

I could just build stuff in Canada, though it did have that glitch that it says it builds something, but it really doesn’t. But with logging out and back in you get the money back, so don’t hear me complaining too much abt that.

Is it possible to search on name rather than go over all the world to find someone to put your hazards on them. I’ve seen the list on this page and wanna put them there, but dunno how to find them..

44 MonopolyHQ October 23, 2009 at 10:15 am

easiest way is to go to the leaderboard -> friends -> add an opponent to spy on, and you can find details on them there.

How can I reach other users? Out of nowhere, a couple of users started attacking my streets. They apparently recruited friends to help, b/c about 7 users suddenly teamed up to attack me. I have never put any attack on another user, and was never on a leaderboard. How do I get through to them?

Reply

48 MonopolyHQ October 28, 2009 at 10:21 am

hey George, there really is no good way within the game at the moment. since thousands of people visit this site, we’re just hoping they take a peak through this chat wall! Not the best way by any means, but it’s something.

i’m all for peace and alliances, but sometimes you just got to take care of things. you can put there names up here as nuisances and just attack back like crazy yourself. sometimes if you’re enough of a pain they’ll just give it up, it’s not worth it for anyone to be engaged in a prolonged war…

Hi, I found this link 2 days ago and shows the relative position of the user on the world board. I say “relative position” because apparently must be connected to MCS when collect the rent. I hope you enjoy it.

albany highway, NZ, owned by lookinglike must be some sort of error because there score doesnt reflect te valu of the street

63 Nik November 10, 2009 at 1:06 pm

I am getting sick of buying one or two buildings then getting a chance that taxes almost all my money. How the heck can I play when the arbitrary tax is placed on me like this.

Today, I bought one building, then was fined over 900 million. Yesterday about the same.
I am getting sick of it, and of dealing with people that own 200+ streets.

I might quit. I love playing, but people and stupid random chances are sapping all the fun out of it.
