Gents I have idea of event main prize. We had 1 event prize PvP orientated, few PvE orientated and few economy ones. Now it's turn for hood size-looks:

After collecting 10 gems or something we get prize:

Bonus- Hood expansions and decorations 50% cheaper.

What you think?

I would have to say no and mainly cuz i have already decorated my hood and because they haven't added any decorations that i could use to improve my hood.

I would like one that improves drop rates, PvE &/or PvP.

Maybe one that increases defense, particularly against robberies.

I do like the golden shovel though! :cool:


edit - expansions would help some but I dont see myself doing more than 1 or 2 additional expansions from here unless they add some more decent HL bldgs.

or how about an 'oily rag' as a main prize. Its bonus modifier could be to turn all your rusty weapons into nice shiny ones....

I decorated my hood as well but my next expansion is 25 mil... And I hate to see other hoods with cramped buildings and no decorations. If we have good drop rate and a lot guys get it we might start seeing more nice hoods. Nowadays loads of player cannot justify buying decorations/expand.

I must have been editing my post while you were responding.

I have no real need for expansions but for you and many others i can see the benefit. :cool:

IMO not all main prizes must be game changing. This one would be just game improver and no one would cry about not getting it.

Maybe from a players PoV yes, but from Funzio's PoV a big fat no...as gold spending would fall of a cliff, don't ya think? And, well, we know that the whole point of events is to be a golden cow with the most mahoosive udders full of cash you ever did see...Mooooo

I realize that, that's why I mentioned good drop rate. If you remember burner rates was terrible, forum was spitting mad, loads of "not buying gold anymore " bla bla. Next event, not remember what it was, but reward IMO wasn't great but drop rates much better. This served as event to calm community/raise hopes. Next few events started going downhill ...

I like this idea, I wouldn't be as pissed about not getting it.

Another thing, check pool results- there is Wayyy to many 0/7. It's time to change it. Funzio can allow themselves give us this one "easy". And it's melee

And therein lies the rub...increasing the drop rates is great but not as a one-off as it's isn't getting to the root of the problem...

Yes, I saw that...actually if you include 1-3/7 they total around 70% but one must assume that Funzio don't care as maybe the revenue they generate from 10-20% of players (or less...I'm just plucking figures) keeps the bean counters happy all day long...

This could be somewhat useful.

Auto collect!

No. That would mean no robbing...

Auto collect bad idea, but auto restart I think good. If you don't have to restart clock by collecting, you could stack up income. Auto restart would restart robbing opportunity as well...

i agree with you. i don't used decorations and won't until i have finshed building and upgrading all the high paying buildings which will take me a very long time. better defense would be somethink i would be willing to pay gold for because i am in the high levels and it might make a huge difference to me.
