Is there anyway to make events show up sooner on android? Last event didn't show up until there were only 2 days left. What gives?

Not that I've seen. Bringing up the do you want to leave screen will make it reload, which I think does help sometimes (doing it repeatedly). That last event everyone got shorted. iOS got it with 4 days, and Android only 2 days like you said. I don't know why it takes them that long to push them thru to the servers sometimes.

This prize it not worth it. Alot of people question if it works and even if it did you will not see a difference.

The top prize unit doesn't seem worth it to me either. The Fusion APC I got from the Android leaderboard event does work thank goodness. +50% from cash raids. That boost is nice, taking 80% of the payout instead of the normal 60%. :)

Anybody know of any good crate drop jobs for a lvl 22 player? I have access to the Docks map, but the A.S.L. takes all my energy after two hits.

I finally got it to work after some help from J, restarting my phone and finally force quitting 5 times. Now I just get to sit and wish this had the same drop rate for crates that IOS does.

I don't think there is any one particular better spot. I think the amount of energy spent overall is the biggest key. We don't call box events leveling machines for nothing lol. Most of us try to hit bosses or other targets that drop units so we at least get something else out of the deal.

I got mine to appear to Android. I had to close the app like 10 times though. I even restarted my tablet once.

Was there an update for MW before this event triggers ?

no update, but you need to make sure to close MW a time or two and the event should trigger. I usually do a force close, open MW and let it sit a couple minutes so it can update game files in the background and then force close it again. After the second force close, I pretty much always get the event to trigger with 0 issues.

The stats look really low on these event items. I mean, 15/11 on the first item is just un-useable at my level.

Try sticking to the Bosses in the first 8 maps available. You will be able to hit those targets more and have a better chance at getting some to drop. I have the North Africa and Southeast Asia maps unlocked, but I don't go anywhere near them because I don't have near enough energy or money to buy the units necessary to do those maps. And I don't want a lot of XP right now either.

Some have said level 10 before, but I'm not a 100%. It's not any higher than that. Other than being at the required level (if there is one) you may have to restart the app and/or device a few times to get it to pop up. Seems everyone on iOS and Android have to do that a lot of the time.

Yeah, I hit that Gunman five times using 1000 energy on the first map and got two crates. I can't even find rivals to pvp to get crates. It seems alot of people either don't play the events or are just camping at my level. I'll have to find that loot spreadsheet with the bosses on it to try them out. Thanks for the info.

THe drop rate of the supply crates are lousy.
Compared to CC it's a big difference. I'm at level 22 and have depleted my energy many times and only got Supply Crates so far.

I'm still at seven. Have a few crates trying to open. A lot of sorry's today. Not trying hard at all, I've got to stop leveling, pitch my tent, and build build build!

The top prize isn't all that great, but I was going to push it this time to see if it is even possible to get all 10. I got to nine propellers within 48 hours after the start of this event, but I have opened over 30 crates since then and I cannot get the 10th. Nothing but mediocre items and some cash and some valor for over 30 crates!!!

Is it even possible to get the 10th item? I usually don't spend gold on things like this, but I was able to collect a lot of crates this time (possibly due to lack of interest by other players due to the lackluster top prize) and I thought for sure that I could win it this time, so I suckered myself into buying some gold to open all the crates before they got stolen and I am just about convinced that the 10th item is impossible.

Anyone who has actually ever gotten all 10 items in one of these events, please let me know how many crates you had to open in order to get that 10th item.

Gree definitely stacks the deck on events like this... the early crates are easy to get propellers or whatever the item is, but they definitely change the odds as you get closer to the big prize. There is no way that I could have came up with dud prizes 30 times in a row if it was truly random.

Someone who has gotten all 10 items before, please let me know so that I can at least feel like I didn't just completely throw my money away for something impossible.

Thanks.

I've opened up 47 crates and still at 9.

Stuck at 8 for about 24 hours now. There was a thread somewhere saying the open rate goes from around 80% for the 1st to around 2% for the 10th, and there's no guarantee there's a propeller in it when it opens.

The good news is I saved hundreds on my car insurance, and I got to 10 on the current CC event which is the same collect 10 format. Different games, I know but the odds should be close to the same. Good Luck everybody! (crossing fingers... only 2 more lol)

Edit: I just got 100 valour! Yippee! 4 previous sorrys lead into... valour :(

this is seeming to be a scam... now that i have 8 propellers, every case i open is a non propeller ... some lame 5/14 apc.... 4 boxes to open with 30 hours left.. whats the bet i dont make 10?

98% sure that you won't. According to forum members that see the game files, you have approx a 2% of getting #10. Good luck! I stopped, the top unit for this event isn't worth it for me to go for.

vaporeon
10-08-2012, 01:17 PM
It sucks though. I feel the +2 valor is great for me so I can start building valor units. I'm not spending money on this game anymore till they fix the ratios.

I'm glad I got the 4 percent to get number 9 but 2 percent for 10 is far too low. Does anyone know if IOS users have the same ratios?

Ph4ntom Stranger
10-08-2012, 02:27 PM
iOS players are the only ones that have any kind of limited access to look at the game files that i know of, and that's who has told us about the percentages. And based on their recent responses from the couple of collect ten events they have had........Yes, yes they do have the same low rate.

vaporeon
10-08-2012, 03:04 PM
I see. Do they think that will get people to buy more gold? At 2 percent, I could spend 10000 bucks real money and never even see the item. I could open all the crates I have and might not ever see number 10. It really does seem like a scam.

I never use to have issues with the 10 crate even and would have it done with like 3 days to spare on cash opens. Now its in the final 24 hours and I'm stuck at 9.

The exact success rate of getting an open w/ cash option is unknown (to me at least). But given an open, and given you're on part #9, it's a 2.29% of getting the 10th part for this event. Given you're on #8 though, and you get an open, it's a 7.14% chance of getting the 9th part. The percentages change ever so slightly if you're in the 81+ bracket though.

(Khimsoo's app shows the current Android event data).

Chuck Nuts
10-08-2012, 06:57 PM
I stuck with it and finally got the 10th propeller! It took almost 60 crates to do it, but success.

I can confirm that the +2 Valor works, but it only works on PVP attacks.... it gives no bonus for building raids. Probably not worth the effort and definitely not worth the money spent, but at least I can confirm that it is possible to get the 10th item.

Cheers!

(First post here peeps!)

Sorry to see that vaporeon...
You must have tried like 50% more boxes than me (you slept 4h??), and I won the event with 2+ days to spare!
First time for me!
The previous one: Autonomous heavy, I tried like 3x more crates at 9 than it took to get get to 9. And I'm so pissed I didn't open as strictly as I do now! I could seriously have tried TWICE as many and add that the event got extended for 3 days (2 days extra) - I would almost certainly have gotten it! GRRRR(EE)
Additional info: strictly free player, all cash opens. First 10-event i think i was mid-20:s in level. This second one, late-40:s.

As for some math, I've read that the probability to get 10:th part is like 2% per try at level above 100 (some-1 provide more data on this!). That makes the prob to get 9->10 after N tries:
1-(1-[prob to get])^N or 1-[prob NOT to get]^N or 1-0.98^N
at 20 tries it's 33%, 40 means 55%, 60 means 70%
I understand this is no comfort to you guys (especially the gold players), but hope it atleast gives a more clear picture...

Welcome! And thanks for the additional insight to the math of it. 60 tries even with gold and it's still only a 70% of getting the unit... wow! too much xp gain and resulting leveling for those kind of odds
