Can you feel the love? An android event log thread started by an iOS guy. Thanks, Anthony, it's nice to know you all are looking out for us :D The first screw up seems to be that the update isn't really live, but who's screw up that is is unclear - Gree/Funzio, Google, or me? Normally I'd bet on me, but this time I think it's one of the others :)

First 2 bosses showed me blanks :( no increase in stats either..
Edit: 3 blanks and my stat went down by about 50.... Wtf????? I ain't touching it anymore until it fixed :)

I LOVE it! RigaTony lol. Welcome to the dark side. I just got the update, but had to go to Crime City in GooglePlay and hit the update (which wasn't there 1/2 hour ago). The comments still say "-New! Scratchers!!" so maybe this was a Google issue......

Same thing happened to me.

I end up wasting 43 stamina trying to activate an epic boss fight. Then when I finally do, I win and get a blank item. No stat increases.

No event here!

Have you updated it ?

DenZ1
10-24-2012, 02:30 PM
The reason for blanks - loot showing is from last event and it is not currently in dataset for current boss I guess. When you win an item, system couldn't find it in dataset and gives you blank. Simple but CRAP as I wasted 3 bosses already :(

TonySpaghetti
10-24-2012, 02:37 PM
I just beat my first boss on level 5. Blank item, no stat increase. Sent in a ticket. :)

Cleared my data and cache, still happened....

KemoKidd

Now I did. Duh! Beat the first two with one cash hit and like everyone else, no prizes or stat increase.

DenZ1
10-24-2012, 02:49 PM
Everybody will be getting blanks until they switch it to current boss (Chen) loot. Which is some kind of samurai armor etc...
You trigger the boss and you see RARE fancy samurai armor picture - you good to go. If not, don't waste them. Wait for the next one and see if it fixed or log out and login back (after boss is triggered) to see if fix has been applied.

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)

This sort of thing happens to me all the time as a developer.

But then I test the software before i release it to people, fix the issue, release the software afterwards and don't embarrass myself.

I just triggered two boss events back to back with two wins, received 20k on first and 24k on seconds with stat increase but the item received is blank. I suppose I'll have to wade through my inventory to see exactly what was given.

soulnmysole
10-24-2012, 03:28 PM
Just received this.

Hey,

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.

Regards,

J

The Contraband Switchblade was not listed as one of the Dragon Chen loot items.. so I'm not sure what Gree is doing at the moment. Also, I checked my inventory and didnt notice the item or a stat increase.

The event is supposed to be extended until Saturday although the countdown clock for the even still says less than 24 hours.

Gree is sending all types of mixed signals.

Ha, finally my android camper can move to its next level!
It will certainly surpass my iPad account within a month.

16 blanks so far. But based on my item list from robbery screen. I got 3 unshown items with stats over 100+.

10-24-2012, 04:19 PM
13 was all I could get, though I was pvping the whole time and my toilet paper would fluctuate up and down, so I probably could have gotten one or two more bosses if I could have "farmed" more tp.. Ah well, still overly pleased the boss events are here on droid, even if I did get crap drop rates. Being over level 101 (and a free player) when boss events are finally released sucks bawls.

Even on IOS the first loot was blank. We still got the prize though, check the IOS thread for the items availible and check your inventory to see what items you were given.

I even had last boss' items in my loot list to start with :p

If you weren't given the items, submit tickets I suppose. I'm curious to see how much "testing" went into this on Android. Looks like a cut and paste job so far, which means any problems you guys are having would be the same problems we (on IOS) had. Fortunately, that means any problems can be diagnosed easily :)

I've beaten 4 bosses and none of the event items are in my inventory, nor do I have "blank" inventory entries. Ticket sent.

i've beaten him 8 times. just now had to buy first aid pack #1. haven't ckd inventory thouroughly, but no stat increase at all, i think.
took a while to get boss to show up and fight me though. had to attack 10 times=boss showed up. attack someone else 10 times=boss showed up. etc
the last two times i did like 2 or 3 attacks and whammo, there he is again.

The crappiest part is that if we'd be getting the items, it wouldn't be this hard to beat a tier 1 boss. I'm on #6 and I'm up to hit #7 and he's still not dead.

Shizzy
10-24-2012, 07:31 PM
I am on boss 13 no items in inventory and no stat increase. I did receive the golden Gatling gun at some point and my current defense is 35649. My guess is items have been added just not visible at this point.

TonySpaghetti
10-24-2012, 07:34 PM
Nope. They're just not there. My attack hasn't budged. I'm still at 39. Lol. Not 39k, 3900, or even 390.

Just...39. :D

okay, wtf. i got to and beat boss #10 within first 1.5 hours. let the game sit for 45-50 minutes to regen energy and stamina... started game up, went on attack/rob spree and did a bunch of quick missions like earlier and haven't gotten a single damn boss to show up! anyone else having trouble getting boss to appear?

tassychris
10-24-2012, 08:21 PM
same thing here I have 16 boses beat. Restated the game 30 min ago did 89 attacks with not a single boss appearing. Before they where appearing every third or forth attack. Its as if the boss tap has been turned off.

Checked my fight screen and no blank items there, as well as no stat increase.. 4 bosses down

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!

Is it ANY event that's supposed to trigger? It doesn't have to be a minimum energy? Any PvP or PvE is capable of triggering the boss? Yesterday I hit Canal Street several times but it didn't trigger so I went to my goals list and that worked right away. Of course, since yesterday evening nothing triggers...

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.

Really really appreciate Gree for releasing boss event on android but this event is a letdown. Boss defeated but no items given, doesn't help stats at all. And all of a sudden boss stopped appearing & event clock is still ticking. Android users are really losing too much on everything, messed up events, Tapjoy not working & didn't even get the prototype rifle from completing the survey. I just hope android messed up events can be justified in the same way as ios previous boss events, by giving out grand prize or any other good prize at least?? Talk about fairness, equal playing field huh..

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

OK so I read this and decided to check my version - 1015_1 just like Vito. Then I thought it might help to uninstall and reinstall. The new version from Google is 1002_0!!!!! WTF? The update I got yesterday is dated 2 weeks newer than the fresh install I got today? And neither are dated 1019_1 which is supposedly what we are supposed to have? Why is support telling us to check the build #? It's right there at the top of the email in the info that the game dumps when you contact support!!!

While I was making my last post, bryoreo made his post. I just went into the game and triggered boss#8 in canal street. This means that while support was feeding us canned BS replies they were dotting virtual "I"s and crossing digital "t"s on their end, which is what needed to happen in the first place. What a waste of time and effort.

The last bost I just did seemed to have worked subtly differently from the ones I was doing earlier; timers and especially when you run out of health look to be working slightly differently.

This is probably why they took out the event.

You can trigger the boss with any action in the game basically. Completing a job, robbing or attacking an enemy will have a chance of triggering a boss.

mikkobaby
10-25-2012, 04:06 PM
It's weird. My screen doesn't show how long it will take to replenish my energy to kill the current boss but instead it only shows the option to purchase the health kit.

Edit: Juz realised timer for energy replenish is not shown, gotta estimate based on boss runaway timer. Hehe..

you have to wait for your health to replenish. you need at least 25 health to attack chen, since health replenishes at a rate of 1/min, you have to wait 25 minutes until you can attack him 1 more time.

i second this. and if anyone is having problems getting boss to appear (like me for 8 hours today) check your build and data # should be 69 and 20121024. if not the 1024 ... quit and restart several times rapidly. i had closed and reopened 10 times at least during the day but not 3-4 times rapidly. when i finally did this, it loaded the boss splashscreen again.

The event has started working again for me but the items I've won are still not in my inventory. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the fact that since level 1 they were all RARE and I'm now working on 14 with another rare up for grabs. Here's to hoping it gets resolved and I'm not cheated out of any of them.

Can someone explain the Billionaires 26 minute strategy?
For being able to hit the boss for free 13 times.
You start with 100 health
Then you hit him 3 times. 100-25*3=25
25 health
Wait one minute - 25+1=26 health left
Attack him 2 more times
26-25-1=0
Then you have used up all of your health and have to buy a med pack!?
What am I missing here?

Start boss fight with a full health bar (our health bar is divided into 4 parts, 1 part = 25 health. 1 health is replenished per min). Hit him 3x, wait 1 min will replenish back 1 health & making it 26 health & this enables u 2 more hits (so total we get to hit the boss 5x by starting fight on a full health bar). Coz Minimum health required to hit the boss is 25 health. For instance if u hit the boss on a full health bar, not waiting that 1 min, u will only be able to hit him 4x instead of 5x, hence the 1 min strategy. Many thanks to Billionaires ingenious method. :D

I still cant even get the splash screen, let alone trigger anything.
I was using data 69 and 20121024_2 this morning, after reading through all this thread I thought perhaps needs a reinstall.

I'm sorry to hear that. I'm on build 69, 20121024_2. I did not do any reinstallation. Same as daystardawg, I tried to open & close app several times & each time after I close the app, I'd clear the phone memory.

Ok, so after my 6-7th restart I am now showing 20121024_2, This is of course sound reasoning.
lol still no splash screen.

Kinda funny really, If I hadnt read about it all over the forums, I would literally be none the wiser about any boss event at all. This is what happens When you give your customers the ability to talk to each other and share experiences!
kinda reminds me of the selective 40% off sale that my wife got (and i never did).

Did a final attempt on lvl 22 boss with the help of leveling up. Managed to kill him & got a Traditional Jian. Overall I'm happy with wat I've got so far & looking forward to the next boss event. :D

Thanks Gree for making boss event come true on android. Previously I said that this event was a letdown, at that time I was feeling frustrated that survey prize wasn't given out as promised plus the hiccups from previous droid events & then first 24hrs of boss event was messed up too. Now I'd take those words back. Thanks once again Greee!!
