View Full Version : Gree - what is the "special sauce" to trigger a boss?

This is getting ridiculous. It's going to be hard enough to beat the bosses but it takes 30 minutes, all your energy and stamina just to trigger 1. Please tell us this is a mistake and will be corrected?

Seriously, I took my time waiting a few minutes between taps to try to trigger them but they're hard to trigger.

Fun event, not.

Everyone in my syn is having the same issues. Energy used on 'On the Run', stamina used up and only 1 or 2 Bosses triggered...No bueno

Please make the Boss easier to trigger, so we have a chance to actually get some of this completed.

I have only been able to trigger a few bosses. Now I have attacked, robbed and done jobs for 25 minutes and no boss? I've restarted the game two times. WTF.

4min wait time and a variety of different attempts to trigger. If you're trying to just attack a single rival to trigger, you're gonna have a bad time. One map hit, one attack and one rob; the third seems to do the trick, for me... doesn't matter the order. I'm sure this changed is to prevent all of those auto-clicking $84 IPH clones from easily creating 5mil attack accounts.


The real issue is the insane raise to the boss health. If Boss2 is any harder than Boss1 (comparing L7 to the next L7) then I'm almost done with this event, already.

Edit: don't forget to server refresh with a bank deposit or a rival list refresh between trigger attempts.

Also, everyone is having some trouble triggering. I'm assuming that 1/3rd of players are trying to trigger a boss, right now. I'm sure the servers are dishing them out as fast as they can.

level 1 summon was easy

after it take a while to summon the next ones.
after summon the 2nd the 3rd and 4th goes fast.

but now after lvl 4 is end again to summon.

is anyone higher than lvl 4 ?

Step 1: Take phone in hand

Step 3: get in truck with big tires
Step 4 : run over said phone
Step 5: repeat as needed

All your triggering problems will be solved

For 2.5 years Ive played this game and Ive never complained. But seriously, why is is so difficult to get a boss to appear. It's not the same as before. Admit the time between bosses has gone up drastically. Really frustrating.

Thank you for the reply A&F but I'm guessing you don't play the game. When 100% of your "paying" customers are telling you that triggering a boss takes much longer than ever before, you really should answer them honestly. Your answer is an insult to your customers.

KingOW
02-28-2014, 03:11 PM

No, it's not. There is seriously something wrong with the triggering of bosses. Please look into it. I've tried EVERYTHING and have only gotten 5 bosses since the event started.

cajunman
02-28-2014, 03:51 PM
the only way i have been able to summon the boss is to go into the game, sit in my hood for a minute, depoit $100 into my bank account, then do one hit on the ltq and then attack a rival.

i kid you not, they have tied the boss event to the ltq. i have tried every other way that used to trigger and nothing. but hitting the ltq and a rival seems to make it start.

I'm asking around, but nothing has been changed with the rate of triggering.

Please ask around more. Something has definitely been changed because it used to be every two minutes any hit (pvp, robbery, ltq) triggers a boss instantly. Now across the board, people are doing hits after hits without any triggering. The widespread problem cannot be shrugged off as "nothing has been changed". Your engineers are very incompetent to begin with, and now they are apparently withholding information from you too.

Fredfreddy
02-28-2014, 05:34 PM
Yes, definitely changed, maybe it's platform specific. On all previous bosses, if you waited 2 minutes, your next action was 100% gaurunteed to trigger the boss (rob, attack, PVE) ... That no longer works, I can't figure out how to consistently trigger it (iOS)

This, although for me it seemed to be 2:30 between, not 2:00. I would go to Canal St., hit Carmen once, open the goals (force a connection to the server) and BAM! The boss came up.

Something is definitely different this time, as everyone else has said. I'd been looking forward to this event, too.

i am at war in MW today and have 6 devices in front of me, yes i am that much of a nerd my 31 year old #$% has been sitting here on the couch trying to summon bosses since this event when live, i have tried every combo of attacks, robs, ltq, carmen, everything, in 10 hours i had 30 bosses.... i'm not all that great at math, but i THINK that averages to 3/hour.... crap... you trolled me... you got me to respond again... well played sir well played...

I would agree with A&F that they have not changed it.

I don't see too much benefit in. Asking the boss trigger difficult. They want ppl to trigger so you go deeper with the boss and as a result spend some gold.

I would have thought an easy trigger would potentially be more beneficial to them.

I think there is an issue with the trigger. A glitch for want of a better word.

Just stop and they will soon correct it. But then the truth of it is that we can't stop no matter what, can we.

It's slower than before. Fact.
But closing the game re opening putting couple hits in, waiting 20-30seconds between each one. No boss. Close reopen and repeat.
Doing it on two devices and both getting a boss about every 5-6 mins.

I disagree, triggering th boss is harder therefore more energy and stamina used to trigger, running at the same time as pvp and ltq = more gold used to refill either/both.

I think it's been slowed up so people have less time to farm at the end of the boss event if you can at all this time!?
Its 6 days long event so even at 3/hour your have 4 days spare triggering time!

Rate is much better this morning. About 5 bosses in 30 minutes. I'm on level 44, just attacking and robbing rivals.

If you don't want to level up then sit the EB quest out, no one is twisting your arm to do it

FYI ...I know no one is forcing my arm. I just don't find it normal to have to go through a full clip of stamina to get a boss! I'm high level but don't want to lvl another 20 lvl for doing boss event perhaps ya get my point now. 😏 One could easily summon boss quicker before ...I guess ya never noticed.
