All that gold despite raw attack stats of over 80K! WTF!!!!!!

TWO RARES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Disgusted with myself for going for this, disgusted for not having the strength to quit 24 hours ago, disgusted with the way the event sucks so much more out of higher level players, and utterly disgusted NOT to receive the prize at the end!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Funzio/Gree for taking my event virginity in this way..... you will not have another cent of my money!

That's harsh buddy. 2 rare's is rediculous. They say the more bosses you beat the better your chances at rares are but that is obviously a big lie.

So did you have to send a ticket TC for the ship?

I felt that way after blowing 3,000 gold for the reduced upgrade costs, over 130 or so boxes looking for item ten. Send a ticket, explain, they usually make it right.

Quick question about this. If I run out of cash should I risk using all my gold in mega attacks or sell a nano and use cash

Dr. Dengus
07-15-2012, 03:45 PM
Definitely don't sell a nano for cash. Out of stamina? If not go on a raiding rampage. How soon until the next big collection from your buildings?

Gold attack > selling buildings if you're desperate.

Gold attack > selling buildings if you're desperate.Ok i might have to go raiding but I lose units fast and 500k+ so overall I think I'd be better off selling but who knows I might not even need to 3.5m and on boss 27

Next big collection is in 5 hours

That's what I mean when I say you are not winning the main prize you are buying it with gold , maybe cheaper but still buying it . I went up 7k attack and levelled up an extra time compared to one level up and guess what , I got to level 17 again so pointless increasing attack like they say . I may even quit boss events as messing my stratigy up a bit .

I am sitting out in these pointless and annoying boss games that interrupts game play constantly. I am at boss 14 and that's the end of it. I am a heavy gold spender but I won't be wasting my money on the boss events anymore. My stats are nearly 300k and I can't even get past half way without gold.

See, that is how rediculous these boss events are. 300K attack and still require gold to beat him. These events do suck...

WOOOOOOOOOOOWWWW!!! if you have 300k stats and even you can't beat him without gold then that pretty much means these events super suck and 99.9% sure you need gold...

I stopped actively playing the events a couple of rounds ago and with this boss stuff after the first 24 hours I realized it was nearly impossible to get much so I only hit them with free hits. Not even cash since it is better used elsewhere same with the events.

These boss events are a lot harder or perhaps have been rigged for much crappier payouts the higher you get level wise. My LLP was doing pretty good on free attacks, far better than me but has been levelling up and now I notice the drop rate on decent stuff has died off.

You really need to stop liking those dangling carrots TC.... ;)

I feel your pain TC, it's a common theme though isn't it, you start spending gold going after that elusive prize and then you can't give up for the fear of wasting what you've already spent until you get it. Then you just spend and spend.

I started doing it on about my 3rd 'collect 10 boxes' event but I'm only a very light gold spender and don't like investing too much real cash in the game. After 4 timer resets and gold opens (120 gold) and no 10th item I managed to stop myself. Who knows the 10th item may have been in the next box, I may have done 3000 gold trying to get it.

Interesting to hear AO's view on in-game cash. I've got to say my view is totally different, to me in game cash is a totally expendable commodity and is to be used wherever possible to obtain gold units. Using the cash attack option in the boss events helps me hit I think 5 more bosses than just using free attacks. At $50-60k per hit I reckon I get 5 gold units for approx $3mil game cash. Who wouldn't buy 5 gold units for that cash? Seems like a no-brainer to me.

I've still never had a rare unit from either boss event, or won a 10th item in a box event but to me the gold units you get in trying are what I'm after. I'm never going to spend crazy cash on this game and I know when I get over level 100 I'm going to get stomped on (I'm 95 now) but every extra few gold units I can get make me slightly more indestructible as I approach whale territory.

Just my take, TC I'll PM you in a minute and then send an ally request.

@ Hivesy

What happened to your cool avatar?

Agree with you on spending game cash to grab whatever gold you can get. It certainly helps the stats and has some deterrence value, I suspect.

Accepted you, BTW, and FYI, you are miles from whale territory, if such a thing really exists anymore....
