    Maybe they have a lot of stuff in storage?

    I have know idea how they are figuring this. I now have jumped from #519 to now being at legend tier 1 #30. I have opened boxes while I was in the lower tiers and now that I am in tier 1 I am still getting the same treasure box payouts.

    Your position in the leaderboard is based on the value of what you have collected from your city in the last few days.

    So larger and more valuable cities will generally be higher on the leaderboard, as will cities where the players more regularly collect what their buildings have earned.

    As a result you will likely see your position change after a few minutes, if you have just collected the payouts from your city.

    Dougaroo can you let me know me on how the values are calculated?

    Coins, Charms, Passes, Gems, what valuation to use for each.

    Charm is probably the coin value of it... coins is coin, passes if i recall 85 pass = 8.5M coins? or 85 Gems = 8.5M coins.. does this sound right?

    Internally everything has a coin value - so we total those up.  But the details of how that's computed are very complicated.  However, it shouldn't really matter.  Just know that when it pays out, it doesn't matter if you got Charms or Coins or anything else.  They will all count towards the leaderboard position in the correct amount.

    I don't care to know how other player's cities are doing! That should be private!!

    Agree with HD Biker1 100%, what is the purpose of adding all that junk to the city? It would have been GREAT if they added what the level of each building is and if it can be upgraded. AND, we should be able to upgrade whenever we have the gems to do so. It shouldn't be based on random one at a time option.

    If you're not interested in others you are welcome to ignore it and just click on through to your city like normal.  But a lot of people have an interest in what other people are doing with their cities and for those folks this should be helpful.

    Also - if you don't wish your city to appear on the leaderboard at all, there's a new setting under the "privacy" section that you can click to opt out:

    This is interesting. When I noticed this a few hours ago I was at #1228 and now I'm at #1219. 

    What has changed? I didn't add anything to my city.

    Either you collected something from your city (that would move you up the leaderboard) or some other people who collected a few days ago haven't collected anything recently and so they moved down below you (which again would move you up).

    Thanks Dougaroo for the confirmation. I was assuming everything had a coin value based on how the city prizes paid.

    Does the floating treasure box prizes also contribute to the city leadership board?

    Thanks Dougaroo for the info much appreciated. Now if someone can only explain to me why my treasure boxes are going back and forth between prize levels everyday since the original update I would be thrilled. Samantha answered my ticket saying there is nothing wrong with the system but I have yet to find anyone else that has this issue. I invested an additional 175k in gems thinking it was just a glitch but nothing has changed.

    I just don't get it...you can view peoples cities anyway...what does this prove?..are we getting rewards for haveing more buildings and higher payouts than others?...

    The floating treasure box prizes are separate from the city prizes and aren't included in your city leaderboard positioning.

    BeePee19 that's the nature of it... you are probably in your 4 day honeymoon period where each building will pay multitudes more and slowly get down to the normal payout. That will also affect the treasure boxes as the power (size of payout) behind the treasure boxes is based on the size of your city.

    If you really want to see what your treasure boxes will pay on average, wait 5 days after you purchase any building other your treasure boxes will fluctuate due to the HM period or the random chance you get higher multipliers from your TB.

    You are already on your 20th diamond so your treasure boxes should be maxed out pays - Luckiest 7 and mystic rubies, 1000-10000 gems, 2000-20000passes, 25M-250M coins,

    Cheers -NG

    Night Guy,

    I have purchased these upgrades last month and the HM period is well over. The problem I am having is from the hours of let say 5am-1pm EST I will get 7's and rubies and that level, then all of a sudden it will drop down again a level to green stars and apples for the rest of the day until 5am the next day. It then jumps a level again. It has done this since the treasure box update and the only thing CW will say is they have no control over this and it is on the server. I can't even get anyone to look into this to see if there is a glitch.

    I have yet to find anyone that is having the same issue and Samantha basically blew off my IT ticket requesting someone to look into this. She said it is all controlled on the server and there is nothing wrong. However, I know plenty of people that had lower valued cities then me that never got downgraded or have been affected by the changes.

    BeePee19 are all your buildings out in your city? You're right there... think you just need to add a few more buildings to keep the TB solidly maxed out.

    I was in the same boat as you going back and forth from Green star jar/Golden apple & L7/Mystic ruby. That was when I was at 19 x L4 Monuments. That was about a week ago, it just happens that CW added the crown levels and I was able to get a bunch if T16, T17 and T18 buildings.

    Those buildings from the crown prizes pushed me into the solid max TB tier.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers -NG

    Off topic, why are all Dougaroo post getting downvoted?? Same as one of my question here and a couple other members post?

    These are legit questions and Dougaroo is trying to answer our questions.

    Dougaroo Is it possible to change the zendesk SAAS so it shows the names of who upvoted/downvoted. That way it's more transparent and not have anonymous member just downvoting just because.

    I do like leaderboards in general as in high game scores (without gem dumps included in the scores) but in this case, it's just a leaderboard on who's spent the most money, and find it kind of tacky.

    A good marketing tool, I guess, to try to get people to spend more money to raise their score but I won't do it.

    fishonron I tried to ask CW if we can have 2 columns of scores on the scoreboards, one for without charm use and one with. They wouldn't do it.

    First, I want to say that I like the city rankings. People who spend the most money can rank very high, but actually a lot of them don't.  Players who spend way less money and don't get the special pets and whatnot can still rank very high because they have been smart about building their cities to maximize earnings.  I think it's good to reward that ingenuity. 

    Personally I like seeing where my city ranks against other players and friends. It doesn't give me any kind of complex because I'm higher or lower ranked than others.  It's just a benchmark tool to help me know where I stand in relation to them.  It also helps to show newbies and players who may not know this, how important it is to invest in your city at every step of the way along your game journey. 

    In any game I've ever played online, there are always players financially well off enough to have huge amounts of cash to spend on games, or those addicted or dumb enough to spend way more than they can afford.  I remember one game I played in with a lot of international players, where the top player spent tons of money.  It was rumored that he could do that because he was a Saudi prince.  Point is, in internet games there are always going to be some people who spend large amounts of money on them. That isn't going to change, so you might as well just accept it.  Get over envying or resenting those who are able/choose to spend big money on games, and just enjoy playing with whatever funds you can and wish to invest.

    As far as the City Rankings go, I'd like to ask if it's possible to be able to choose to sort our Friends' rankings  alphabetically, the same way our Friends List can be.  Currently the city rankings for friends' cities show those who are online in alphabetical order, but following that all the other names are just a jumble. .
