Do you know if there is a mod on top 250 prize

Based on the screenshot I posted, there doesn't appear to be one. The Top 250 prize doesn't usually have a modifier though, I think last time was an exception?

The event started for me (on iOS), but there appears to be a couple of issues:

i) can't seem to trigger a handbag drop, despite a dozen robberies at 8 different rivals
ii) the Rivals list is showing inaccurate numbers of levels attached to random rivals, e.g. shows as 27 on the main page, but clicking on their profile shows that they're level 41, and another displayed as level 28 on the main page is a level 31 when I check their profile.

I forgot about this thread. I guess I can take comfort in the fact that it's plaguing both operating systems. :p The upside is that I haven't lost a robbery attempt so far, and the handbags are dropping.

Yes, I'm getting the same. The 15 gold option is actually a pretty good deal with this one IF this keeps up :)

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed a difference in the rate of successful case opens? Possibly a side effect to better loot items.

Too early to tell, usually good on the first day, deteriorates by e day ...

Well technically speaking your odds depend on the number of successful case opens you already have, whch is why they'd be better the first day.

I'm doing unusually poorly, only at 3/13 so far.

The drop rates for gold users (like me) aren't that much better; I'm 6/11 thus far. Started off great (5/5), but just 1/6 since then. The consolation prizes (like the Elite Police Armor and Kanabo) are better, but it feels as if they're trying to draw this out as long as they can (no surprise there).

Pitiful open rate, and I don't know about new items, I got a crappy 12/15 gun or some other such garbage, lousy 20 case events suck a$$!

I'm glad the loot items are better (though sad they only got better after I stopped chasing Top 250 spots and I can't trade my Enhanced Bikes and Deviant Coats for Shoulder Cannons and whatnot), but I'm more curious to see what people's thoughts are on the open rates. I'm currently 6/25 cash opens, which seems markedly worse than previous events. I haven't been doing any gold opens this event, so I'd like to hear some opinions from people who regularly chase the leaderboards in this if the rates for gold opens are any different than in previous events (e.g. more loot items, same rate as always, etc)?

I'm tracking the leaderboard for top 250, and all these sorts of factors (better loot items, different open rates, etc) all affect my prediction, so I'd like to account for as many variables as possible.

The rate for getting the gun with gold openings are ****... I'm currently on 15 and I'm not gonna spend more gold on this. Feels like gree spits you in the head when you receive 300 rp!

I'm on seven pistols and two generic prizes all cash opens. Seems like normal rate for me. I usually only make it to 15 for collect 20's.

That's well above average for cash opens only.

I think you're right. Although people in my syndicate are reporting lower than usual opens on cash tries.

What is usual? 10 or 15?

In my experience chasing top 250s, you should do it the other way around if you're trying to save money on gold. Start with cash opens for the first ones, and then switch to gold opens and no resets with ~2 days left (this was an unusually short event) when you get around 10-15 when the odds of successful opens start getting a lot worse. I'd almost be willing to bet against you hitting 20 with cash opens for the rest of the vent. This advice may no longer be valid if they changed the open rates for cash opens. Maybe switch to gold opens at 5 now or something, haha.

Depends on how many cases you open, obviously. For the general CC population, I'd guess that 10 is fairly average. Last event I did cash opens only, and I opened an absurd number of cases (we're on day 2 and I currently have 30 opens) and ended up with 16 (I hit 15 on the last day, but stopped opening them so religiously after that since I knew I wasn't going to get to 20).

tl;dr 10 average
15+ good

You're still luckier than me. I spent all of yesterday and the earlier part of this morning just getting to the Wild Night Lingerie (took an additional 11 opens to get from #6 to #8), and now that I'm at #11, I'm not sure if I want to keep pushing for Pretty In Pink.

I'm with you on that 300 RP prize; I can't think of anything more insulting as a prize than this (and I've been insulted twice so far :mad: )

You don't have to look too far back for a more insulting prize: $10k cash.

It depends on the player and their IPH. I received a few of those $10K awards during the last couple of events, and while I do admit that it's a terrible prize (even for me), I still hate the RP ones even more (the only thing to rival this in my eyes for sheer uselessness is the Mark 2 Blade (7/9)).

That's because you're still below level 100. I haven't seen any poor loot items yet, but in previous events, it was the biggest slap in the face because it costs more than $10k cash to open a case after level 100. This event, the lowest I've received so far is $30k cash.

I received a couple of those. Just curious: for players above lvl 100, what's the highest cash award for events like this?

In prior events it was $100k cash, this one the highest I've received so far this event is $100k cash, but I can't confirm if there are any higher prizes that I just haven't seen yet. But it's probably still $100k.

I can fairly confidently say that $100k is the max.

It's nice they finally upgraded the prizes. Too bad I still can't use any of them.

I started right away with cash and tried dozens and dozens of time. Ended up with 7!!! I got 3 in item drops and 2 cash drops. The drop rate for me was PATHETIC! If this is a sign of future case events you can count me O U T

I too was surprised how poorly my cash open rate was. I only got to 9 and the ninth was my last try. Why would you count out an event if you are playing for free? I'm not aggravated bc 1. I didn't spend real money 2. I got a decent prize and 3 other opens and 3. You don't have to worry about leveling up too quickly.

Some of you over react to these events. I can understand you being mad if you are using gold and resets and are barely getting any guns even though NOTHING IS GUARANTEED IN THESE EVENTS!
