    Il Cugino

    Clone him, and I'm sure you'll be banned.

    People have been asking about the business decision that kabam has made when making this new troop.

    The writing is on the wall.

    Buy him...but if you clone him....buh bye!!!!

    It would be real easy to tell.

    Still, this troop make JL's kinda useless.

    Might as well give away 3000 kickbacks on a daily basis, like a LC ticket.

    You think this troop is The Godfather:Five Families swan song?

    It kinda makes sense.

    Maybe, some others can pipe in their thoughts.

    Dude seems overly strong.....

    Has Kabam got it wrong? Well if you ask the accounts dept and any stakeholders, no they are doing just fine.

    Forget Kabam as some geeky mates of yours interested in developing a game for you to really enjoy, it is a money making venture for them. No more no less. And while to many of us on here who have seen the emergence of many many "New Super troops" hang our head for the loss of gameplay, others are busy with the credit cards splashing out on this new hood/troop. And while we collectively are all suckers and keep playing this little dance and paying for "New super troops" they will keep on using the fomula that has worked so well for so long. Go to a therapist quoting this kind of behaviour and they will tell you it is cyclic. And the only way you can break it is if one of you refuses to "Play the game anymore". Kabam isn't going to do it because they are still making money, so it has to be the players who refuse to buy into the crap anymore. The downside of this is obviously if Kabam don't make money they wont make / host the game.

    For an example of how stupid we are take the contributor on the forums who just last week started a thread on how bad the game had become with all the cloned troops still about, and that there were still cheats in the system which allowed troop doubling. A week later they start another thread a review on the new hood/troop giving it a great big thumbs up saying it will help rebalance the server. What message does that give to the software developer? Your doing fine, keep it up I guess.

    kabam is making one last effort to get money before it shuts down.
    When i was young they used to say we can become cops, or criminals.
    But when youre facing a loaded gun, whats the difference?

    Seriously though, some people act like The Godfather:Five Families is the only game kabam develops. Have you even looked at the list of the other games they produce? This is just one game. And, as far as the reviews go of this game, it's not a heavy hitter in the world of MMO gaming. In fact, 75% of the reviews on this game are very negative, and do nothing to promote this game at all. It's making a little money. Kabam is doing fine, but The Godfather: Five Families is NOT kabam. The Godfather:Five Families is not sustaining kabam all by itself.

    Swan for kabam: NO

    Swan song for The Godfather:Families: Possibly, based on Il Cugino.

    Marketing is everything and so far, this troop is not accessible to everyone, and is a VERY UNBALANCED troop in a game where balance is required to sustain interest.

    It is not the greatest marketing tool, no matter how long the Doria Airport event is extended out.

    I've heard more bad things about it than good things, and more bad things carries more weight in the world of MMO.

    Il Cugino (The Cousin) was set up as a long term investment (a troop that could wipe the clones, available to those who won one of them)

    "The American Cousin" (Il Cugino Americano-Blood Ties) was also based on a movie.

    Not a great movie, but a movie.

    Sort of a swan song there.

    Even "The Godfather: Part Three" sucked.

    There was a lot of growth potential for this game, but I believe that those involved are pulling their hair out right now trying to figure out how to sell this game to the public.

    They might wanna hire some older people who grew up when this movie (The Godfather) was popular, because right now...the pooch is screaming "let me go....you have no skills".

    If you are going to screw something, at least have some skills and stop with the viagra.

    Il Cugino = viagra.

    No need for strategy if you own Il Cugino.

    Kills the design of the game.
