You need to doing missions or fight rival to get the pop up but you need have it on goal list before you start it.

Please read Billionaire guide it's very useful (http://www.funzio.com/forum/showthread.php?40705-The-Billionaires-Guide-to-Boss-Events)

took over 40 stamina to activate my first boss fight. win the fight and get nothing, just a blank item.. and did notice any stat increases.

also.. how do we only get 1 day to defeat the boss 40 times.. seriously?

smh

So iOS users get an extra day to pad their stats even more.. yet Droid users are limited to only 1 day to try and catch up.

We are getting blanks all the way.. No items rewarded.
Actually I know why. The loot is showing from LAST boss event. (Flamethrower etc...)

I don't think they will need a patch for this one. Just dataset fix on server side or something.

Same here. I've gotten a blank item for each of the 8 bosses I defeated. This happened on my iOS account at the start of this event. I read a post by CJ somewhere that the items do register on the server side, so they will be added to your inventory even if not right away.

I think its a different issue here Paulio. You see old loot now on Android.

This type of idiocy doesnt even deserve a response.. but let me ask you a question.

How is me complaining about a glitch that completely nullifies the implementation of a Epic Boss event for Droid not justifiable when Droid users arent rewarded anything for winning fights against the boss?

If you won the lottery and they gave you Monopoly money, would you not complain?

Response from support re this issue:

J England, Oct 24 14:12 (PDT):
Hey Anthony,

Thank you for contacting Gree Support. The Epic Boss event time has been extended until Saturday 11:59pm for Android players. The item from the Epic Boss is functional, however, it may appear as blank to some players. This is a display issue only, which will be resolved very soon. I apologize for any inconvenience. Please let me know if you require further assistance.

Regards,

J

My response: hogwash. Neither of the bosses I killed increased my stats.

TonySpaghetti

Extra weirdness: during boss #3, my energy was wiped out. I set my timer for 26 minutes to finish him off, and after the 26, my energy had been completely restored, instead of the 1 attack and change.

Hey Dante,

Thank you for contacting Gree Support. The item you have received is the Contraband Switchblade, with 33 attack and 30 defense. This item is functional, however, there is a display issue that will be resolved very soon. The event time has been extended until Saturday 11:59pm for Android players. I apologize for any inconvenience. Please let me know if you require further assistance.

Not only did I not see an increase in any of my stats, but the Contraband Switchblade isnt even listed as a loot item for this event lol.

Gree is f*#^ing up big time on this event.

@ TonySpaghetti....On that new Android account you have, what level did you have to be on to trigger the boss event?

I just installed the game on my Android phone after the announcement came up that they had released the Boss event. The first Boss got triggered when I was on level 5.

Just curious if anyone on android got the pop up and if so how much time does it say is remaining? I'm just curious if the one day extension is for iOS too because it hasn't reflected the change in game. I really need the time.

Now, after attempting to fight him, app locked up, forced close, went back in, nothing is showing in my hood: no money buildings, no defense buildings, no decorations, and I don't even see myself.

Wtf

Update: immediately after sending in yet another support ticket, everything showed up in my hood again.

Stupid question, but it seems to me that (considering EVERYONE is having the same results) you guys probably released this for Android without even testing it. Pretty unprofessional.

Hmmm, I guess that was more of a statement than a question.

Hey Anthony,

Thank you for contacting Gree Support. I apologize for any inconvenience. I would suggest, as a possible solution, to exit and restart your game, in order to see the items won from the Epic Boss. Please let me know if you continue to experience the issue.

Regards,

J


Anthony, Oct 24 14:18 (PDT):
Hi j,

I can guarantee you that the item is NOT functional. I have already beaten 2 bosses and am working on #3. There has been no change to my stats. If you take a look at the forum, you'll see that I'm not the only one experiencing this issue.

Thanks,

Anthony

Great release, ty Gree

At least some advance with boss events, and multiclick jobs no-loot problem solved. Even OVERsolved: I have 100% chance to receive loot from multiclick jobs, including jobs with explosives. Usually (acording to spreadheet) this chance for best jobs is 15-40%. Now drop rate is about 2-6X times better than supposed.

You have to update the app. Then look in your goals list, it should be there.

so i updated and see in the goals list, i see:

Defeat Dragon Chen 40 Times

i click on FIGHT 0/40

it says:

FIND MORE BOSSES
In order to complete this goal you need to find more bosses to defeat. Complete the missions to find bosses.

what missions? do they mean to say "jobs"?

there are three things now ... goals, missions, jobs .. what am i supposed to do lol .. this is nuts :o

the_dude
10-24-2012, 11:37 PM
I hope that when they do fix it, if they cant give us the items we should have won, that they reset the boss count so i can start over. It just keeps getting harder to beat them and we need that stat increase.

The only problem i can think of with doing that is people that spent gold would be pissed.

tassychris
10-24-2012, 11:47 PM
If they reset I'll be really upset as I have already defeated 16 bosses but I can now loot explosives. Thats the big change I have been waiting for.

the_dude
10-25-2012, 12:44 AM
Reseting your bosses wouldnt have any affect on your multiclick loots. That was a different fix. But i guess if you got pretty far with the bosses it might be annoying to start over. But think about it, you missed 16 opportunities to get rare items. The uncommons are not bad either.

tassychris
10-25-2012, 12:48 AM
True dude... But I would hope that they could look at my results and give me the average of what I would have got. Thats why I kept on hitting even though I received no bonus's. Plus that and it was a rainy public holiday so was just moochin around the house.

the_dude
10-25-2012, 01:06 AM
Even better than averaging things they should just give us all rare items for the ones we missed :D

tassychris
10-25-2012, 01:27 AM
Give android players a break I like your thinking lol. Frankly I think we have had to put up with enough sorry apple players I know you will disagree and blame us for buying a crap tablet/phone. But the fact we haven't been able to loot from higher levels for six months mean we have been so badly disadvantaged that a lot of your higher up players would be kiled by us if we had been given the same game to play. Look out android players are coming your way now.

tassychris
10-25-2012, 01:37 AM
It would have also been good for Crime City mark or someone to post that we have taken down an event while we work on it. Rather then let Android members spend hours wondering why no bosses are appearing. I take it therer s a work to rule thing going on at Gree

TonySpaghetti
10-25-2012, 12:19 PM
Copying this post over from the "Log your progress" thread just in case anyone from the spurt team are monitoring this thread:

The item might be in the inventory, but it doesn't count:

When I look at my stats on my Android device, I see:

Attack: 96
Defense: 52
# weapons: 54
# armor: 8
# vehicles: 0 (would LOVE to see this line added to the iOS stat page)

When I look at the RigaTony's profile from my iOS account, I see:

Attack: 223
Defense: 164
# weapons: 60
# armor: 8

The difference (60 vs 54) in weapons count is the number of Bosses that I have beaten. They are:

Guns:
1 x Loaded Punisher (17/13)
1 x Unpolished Uzi (45/41)

Melee:
4 x Rusted Switchblade (18/15)

If you look at. My original list of items from the boss screen, NONE of those are in the list:

Common:
Cracked Baseball Bat (19/14)
Short-barreled shotgun (17/13)
Worn Combat Boots (12/21)

Uncommon:
Hand-me-down Jacket (31/49)
Rusty Knuckles (36/36)
Scrapped Autom...? (52/34)

Rare:
Restored Mustang (94/102)
Mobile Flamethrower (89/76)
Stained Dagger (105/91)

GET. IT. TOGETHER. GREE!

10-25-2012, 12:32 PM
I think those items you have listed are from the Jimmy the Gouch boss event you had on ios. The actual items you received were probably the correct data set items which we seem unable to get on our phones but exist server-side. I wonder how many other "automatic items in my inventory" weapons I was suppose to get are sitting over there server side.

Thank you for contacting Gree Support. I apologize for any inconvenience. I would suggest, as a possible solution, that you exit and restart the game. You may need to perform this action 2-3 times for the change to take effect. This action will provide a data reset, and allow for you to trigger the arrival of the Epic Boss, and to have access to any loots dropped by the Epic Boss which were previously blank items. Please let me know if you require further assistance.

...
I'm on Adroid and it seemed that the possibility to even trigger the boss
at all on Android disappeared yesterday evening.
I suppose it has been disabled until the blank loot have been fixed?
Trigger it yesterday was no problem.

...
Thank you for contacting Gree Support. I apologize for any inconvenience. Please make sure that your game is using Build 69, Data Version 20121019_1. You can find this information by tapping on Menu, More, and About. If you are not using Build 69, please go to the Google Play store and update your game. If you are not using this Data Version, please exit and restart the game. You may need to perform this action 2-3 times for the data set to refresh. Completing this action will allow for you to trigger the arrival of the Epic Boss, and to have access to any loots dropped by the Epic Boss which were previously blank items. Please let me know if you require further assistance.

My version is build 69 but it's from the 15th and no new version available under Google play.

Yes I have that version myself.
But they refer to build version 69 which mine from the 15th also is called.

I had the same issue. I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling which re-loaded with data from 20121002 or something. 5 restarts later and the data is now showing as 20121024_2. This now shows my full attack and the items in my inventory.

Straight up - I know nothing about this stuff - but doesn't this spontanious change to 1024 data set point to an internal fix at Funzio, meaning all the runaround from support was BS? Why can't they just say "we're working on it"? They have in the past. It would have made their life easier because I wouldn't have been emailing back and forth, and I'm sure I wasn't the only one...

Can anyone do 13 free hits on Android's epic boss? On my phone when my health drops below 25 I automatically get a message that the enemy is too strong.

You do know you can can't do all 13 hits in one go

It works like this


It's possible to hit a boss 13 times for free. This is how it's done.

When you have full health trigger the boss. When the fight appears attack the boss 3 times using the cash option. Wait one minute so that your health increases by one and then you'll be able to attack him 2 more times.

Wait 26 minutes and then you can attack the boss 2 more times.

Wait 26 minutes and then you can attack the boss 2 more times.

Wait 26 minutes and then you can attack the boss 2 more times.

Wait 26 minutes and then you can attack the boss 2 more times.

Using the above strategy will tell you how many boss levels you can complete for free.

TZora
10-26-2012, 09:55 AM
that's nice because i felt that the health increased pretty fast

TZora
10-26-2012, 10:00 AM
o well .. i feel the health depletes very quickly. is there a way to increase the health points just like we add up skill points to increase energy or stamina? :rolleyes:

Bala82
10-26-2012, 10:08 AM
Yes buy a health pack which cost gold


Health Packs (HP's)

Once you reach the boss level where it's no longer possible to beat him with the 13 "Cash" hits you might need to start purchasing HP's (10 Gold). HP's give you 50 health points but there's also a strategy to be used when buying HP's:

When you've used all of your health points to attack a boss don't purchase a HP straight away. Wait one minute for your health to increase to 1 and then purchase the HP (50 Health Points) because you'll have 51 health points and be able to attack the boss another 3 times. If you purchase a HP straight away you'll only have 50 health points which will only allow you to attack the boss 2 more times.

Using this strategy means HP's are a better way of spending gold rather than mega attacks. A mega attack (20 Gold) is your attack score multiplied by 4 so in theory it's the equivilent of 4 hits against the boss. Using the above strategy and purchasing 2 HP's (Total of 20 Gold) means you can hit the boss 6 times rather than 4.

I haven't been able to do it either. The message says too strong.
They may have modified the android version.

No way to get a hit in after 1 minute.

You can't increase the maximum health. Its always 100.

The message is there if you leave the fight and come back with less than 25 health. It disappears when you have 25 health. The message is meaningless while following the 13 free hit logic. If you wait the 26 minutes after completely depleting your health, there will be no message and you'll get the 2 hits. Then the message will be there again while your waiting the next 26 minutes.

How long do Boss Events usually last? And how long did iOS users get to complete this event?

Because if this even began on the 24th but ends on the 27th, not to mention boss fights were impossible to trigger for the latter part of the 24th and the start of the 25th, Droid users are only getting 3 days to complete this event.

Does Gree plan on extending the time since we couldnt trigger bosses for a full day?

if u do not use gold, how many levels can you do with either free or cash option? i'm asking this because the boss remains for only 2 hours. but if u can't get enough health to beat him within 2 hours, he is gone and then u have to find the boss again and begin all over. am i getting this right or am i missing something?

Yes, you're right. The amount of bosses that you can hit depends on your attack score. The bosses get progressively harder, so if you're having a hard time beating one boss, increase your attack.

The free option only attacks with a fraction (I think it was either 1/4 or 1/2) so if you have the in-game cash, use that.

Don't forget that if you DO use gold for a medkit, after you buy the medkit, wait 1 minute before attacking. That way you can get 3 hits out of the kit instead of just 2. It makes more sense to use the medkits over the gold attack. For the price of 20 gold, using the above method, you can get 6 hits with medkits vs the 4 hit gold attack.

Again, this is all outlined in Billionaire's guide to boss events.

TonySpaghetti
10-26-2012, 12:39 PM
Another thing: if you time your boss attack properly to level up at a time that your health is at 0, you can milk an extra 5 hits out of the boss (3 hits, wait 1 minute, 2 more hits)

I'm noticing two new things with this update as well as the boss event; they fixed the comments page where you can click on the comment, and it brings up a new scrollable window for it, and they also fixed the pvp quests not showing what item you get on completion.. I just beat a hardcore hitman and it showed a chain whip as well as the other prizes..

Pretty sweet, good job GREE :)

TZora
10-26-2012, 07:51 PM
thanks tony for answering my questions and explaining in detail, that's sweet of u :)

how is ur attack calculated against the boss? is it ur skill attack score or is it ur overall attack score? my skill attack is around 50 and my overall attack score is around 75k. but it may be different because on android, it keeps increasing as u keep adding mafia. the real overall attack score is based on only 500 mafia (am i correct?).

so if i increase my skill attack and overall attack score, i can beat the boss better? i guess i should take out some time and read the guides here on the forums ..

The versions of apps running on amazon's store are delayed in release because they have to be approved and uploaded seperately than the play store. I was using the amazon store because i had one of their gift cards. But the apps kind of suck because they arent up to date. They can only be updated by the amazon store.
