Open 9. No gold.

Why tho iv opened nearly 200 or more crates I shouldn't have to pay to open the last 1. What about all those people who can't afford the prices or don't have a chip card. Its the same with the boss battles aswell I can't get past level 17 without paying too

you don't always have to spend gold. I got the evidence roaster with no gold at all. i got lucky. This one i spent DAYYYYSS stuck on 8 last night i finally got mad and spent 120 gold and got to 9. i was saving that gold for goin 9 to 10!! i figure tho the 9 item plus the item you get for this weeks spend gold get more! event are worth the 120 gold ive spent. all these people say they've given up my buddy last night got to 10 with no gold at all. there is still a day left keep tryin.

I think if you only do cash opens you should shoot for getting the 9th item. Yes it is possible to get the 10th with cash opens only, but if you expect to get number 10 because you get to 9 fast then you are probably going to be disappointed.

Your sarcasm is misplaced, champ. No, it's not a coincidence, but it's not a grand conspiracy either. The items get progressively harder to find... the last one is something like a 2% chance to find after you successfully open a box. This has been discussed many times here. Read and learn before whining please.

Thanks for the heads up on that one, hell I spent about 150 getting to my 9th painting with the intention of dropping more to get 10 (until I purchased a stockpile of gold and didn't receive my gold, still waiting on gree to resolve the issue) but I'll save the gold for later as it seems the odds for getting this weapon aren't very good.

The use of Gold is NOT a guarantee for succes!

What?...... I really tried and I can't make any sense of this statement...

sexkitteh
02-12-2013, 02:12 PM
I got explained this once upon a time... may or may not be true...

But from what I was told is that there is a limited amount of number "10s"... the odds of getting them are good in the first couple of days, so if you are going to spend gold, do it in the first couple of days... because after that the "fast ones" are gone and then the odds drop and drop and drop... so ie: the first person to get 10 got it easy... next guy not so easy... etc etc etc etc... I've spent like 1000 gold on the last day thinking of getting the 10... whoops... then got explained by someone with cred how it works...

good luck to you all!

I learned a long time ago that if your willing to spend gold on the crate events do so at the beginning of the event. The odds seem to decline as time goes by. I've been stuck on 8 on my main account for 2 days now. I lucked out on my camper account and got 10 two days ago. I burned around 350 gold on the evidence burner and learned from it. All cash going forward until a sweet perk comes along. I wanna see a no deposit fee again. Haven't seen that since I started. It was just before I think

Maybe 70? Since the last collect 10 I did at 68 I got 10 with less than 300 gold. This time I spent a bit over 2000 gold and still at 9 (had 8 on first hour and 9 after 40 opens).

If you want to spend gold on collect 10 events, spend them within the first 12 hours, you have a much better chance to open the 10th item.
Use gold resets, refill your energy and stamina, just open as many boxes as you can within the first 12 hours.
It's no guarantee, but way better chance.:o
If you spend gold in the last hour, it is next to impossible to open the 10th box, you better spend them on crates.

MoarKrabs
02-12-2013, 08:30 PM
I was lucky enough to open the 10th one with all cash opens. At least it sort of makes up for the disappointment that was the Evidence Blaster event.

This time i got like 8 opened the first day, and NONE since.. i even used 150 gold on opening but only get 25k and useless items.. this sucks..

It's your money, so I can't tell you how to spend it, but I opted for the recent limited items with my modest gold spending.

With 2400 gold you could have had 6 bone frag grenades and 60 gold left over (total attack/defense of 2490/1340), 16 Black Powder Powers (3792/3120) or some combo of the two. I like the car but just couldn't justify it - especially knowing that it's quite possible to spend 2400 gold and end up with nothing but carnival sledge hammers and 9/9 motorcycles.

Low level accounts have MUCH better odds to get 10. It's straightforward math and has nothing to do with time.

Can you tell this to my level 38 Alex please MXZ? He's been stuck on 8 paintings for more than 3 days lol, which is the same for my lvl140 main account. Even spadged 105 TJ on the lvl38 to gain the gold spender reward, which saw him pick up some cash, a bit of respect and a couple of those truly fantastic enhanced bikes. Thanks for your assistance in this matter, I expect numbers 9 and 10 to appear consecutively before the timer gets to "soon"...

I agree. They really should either make it so after X opens you get the item regardless, or at least make the losing items get better with each open.

Unless it was a one-time thing (that actually happened a few times), I think the game force closes if your syndicate leader buys any bonuses. Maybe that was only happening because syndicates were just released and everyone was donating/upgrading like crazy, I don't know. Each time my game crashed I would check my syndicate board and see that something else had just been upgraded.

I'm not saying the game would crash instantly upon a bonus being purchased. The game would still run but the next time I would do anything that requires a server call I'd get the boot. Maybe because the game doesn't match up with what the server thinks it should be doing?

Anyways, good luck to you guys. Hopefully someone can disprove the above hypothesis.

I emailed support asking why I was stuck on 9 for 2 days, just out if interest to see if I would get a reply... They sent this....

Greetings,

Thank you so much for writing in to GREE Customer support. It appears that you could be on an older data set, which fortunately is pretty easy to fix! In order to get on to the latest data set, please simply close out your application and reload it.

Any ideas what that's about it is it just a standard reply?

Can't have an app open when you take a call? Is that an iPhone thing?

Yep and annoying. Closes out app when you take call... or for the OT purposes game over

Dude, how long have you been married?! Call her back on company phone next time! Coulda been a contender with 10 hits but you'll never know!:p

Don't think OT is gonna work for me on 10th.

Good thing that I'm my syndicate leader and am staying in OT doing nothing else. :) Bluestacks is running strong in OT with 33 crates left to try. My phone is doing amazingly well. I have 15 gold left and 203 crates. I planned ahead and shut down auto-update for all my apps. If it IS getting close to crashing is it better to have an extra chance or a guaranteed open? I'm going with the gold open instead of the reset... i think...

It took 4 days of OT last time to get the Evidence Destroyer on BlueStacks. Hopefully I have better luck with my Android this time.

02-13-2013, 05:06 PM

5 fails, 1 enhanced bike, and waiting for my next OT open. I'm keeping it on the event screen and leaving my IPod alone.

I'm only 6 hours in an this is very difficult for not having my music for car rides. My home button is shoddy, I don't want to risk double tapping the home button and it closes CC by accident.

6 am local time. Minutes left on the event. I am woken up by a calendar event for tomorrow (automatic 18 hour reminder). I am still logged into Crime City, so I roll over and press the open button. Modern Painting number 10 is mine. Not the greatest item bonus-wise, but my little camping account loved the stats boost.

No worries, totally caught the humor. Thanks that comment made me chuckle. Another girl. The ratio is 4:1 and I'm out numbered. Name wise there'd be a huge selection, but I probably won't delve into that pool for fear of retaliation from a disgruntled player over a case of mistaken identity. Who knows, if CC Is still around, I might have some young recruits for my own syndicate.

Post #27: http://www.funzio.com/forum/showthread.php?45010-Is-it-ok-to-do-overtime.&p=579488


I just took OT to the limit, working on roll of film #10 for over 10 days - finally got it yesterday morning. The cost was pretty severe though, I missed out on the entire subsequent box event, had to squander over a week's worth of energy and stamina accumulation on a zero-camping account, plus lost all other use of my iPad for the entire time, so it wasn't strictly an extreme gain, I just wanted to get my first modifier after over a year of daily playing.

MXZ said it best: the existence of OT is not the result of any technological or informational limitation on the developer's part, and is therefore part of the intended game dynamics. Knowledge of how to maximize the opportunity afforded by OT is just an advantage that accrues to the informed player, similar to how the use of detailed spreadsheets allows me to spend more efficiently than someone who flies by the seat of his or her pants.

12 OT tries and 8 OT opens 4 OT BLNTs and then THIS! I was starting to think that they were all going to be BLNT after the first day.

2438

I've gotten the Evidence (Destroyer? the lvl83 weaker one) after 4 days in OT
I've gotten the Discreet Getaway (lvl 86 strongest one?) after 2 days... just now.

I was on 9 from all cash opens with a day left, ended up spending 135 gold for 9 guaranteed opens before the timer ran out, and got nothing, so I gave up on gold. After seeing that people spent over 2000 gold and still didn't get the 10th item, there was no way I was going to drop anymore on it, as I figured it was completely hopeless. After that, I starting using cash opens again, into OT, up until around 1am EST last night, and got an enhanced bike and a ton of BLNTs.

Woke up today for work, hit a cash open, and much to my surprise...
