    New Buildings Event VS Battle M1A1 Tanks

    I'm sure this has already been painstakingly analyzed, but I have a few questions. Please follow my math.

    Money spent on building a level 10 Shinerís Still.
    50,000,000
    83,500,000
    139,400,000
    232,800,000
    388,800,000
    649,500,000
    1,084,500,000
    1,811,200,000
    3,024,800,000
    5,051,400,000
    $12,515,900,000 (Total)

    Reward:
    Level 1: Knee Capper 428/349
    Level 2: Bean Shooter 621/415
    Level 3: Bent Smuggler 640/784
    Level 4: Rub-out Rumbler 1262/680
    Level 5: Distiller's Mask 1295/1295
    Level 6: Chopper Squad 1852/1515
    Level 7: Shine Bomb 2564/1709
    Level 8: **** Lid 2124/3185
    Level 9: Boom Stick 4015/2460
    Level 10: Rum Runner 6475/6475
    Total thatís 21276 att. & 18867 def. Gained


    I want to compare this to buying Battle M1A1 Tanks
    Theyíre 70 att and 95 def.
    $12,515,900,000 would get you 455 Tanks
    Or
    31850 att
    43225 def

    This makes me think Iím gona skip these events. Anybody care to tell me that Iím missing something? Like the added advantage of your new money making building out ways the less att and def gained from the special equipment for the event?

    Iím thinking TYPE A Buildings all the way and going back to upgrading NC is a better idea after you build these 2 new buildings.

    you only get to use 500 of them and as you gradually get into the game your worst item will be like 2k/2k. so dont buy the tanks do the events ;D

    Yeah you are missing a few things...
    1) not everyone can buy battle tanks
    2) maxing out you mafia with tanks is ok but you won't gain all those raw stats (for either tanks or event)
    3) one single item at 500/500 is far better then 500 items at 1/1
    4) by building and upgrading you are doing what you would normally do but get prizes for

    And a lot of players have upgrade mods, so they aren't paying those prices for upgrades...

    And another valid reason to do the LTBs, who didn't get the -30% on upgrades in the last PVP tournament LTQ?

    All the above are valid points as to why you shouldn't buy the tanks and as Walsh said you're going to benefit from doing the events in the long run.

    Check your inventory and see how many vehicles you have with an attack higher than 70 and defence higher than 95.

    subtract that number from 500 and that will tell you how many tanks you need to buy. Over time though they'll gradually get replaced by better items and you'll end up levelling the LE building up so you may as well do it now and collect the prizes.

    Those new cash items were effectively obsoleted rather quickly....while I could also benefit from them, the point of long term consideration is quite right.

    Better use the cash on the ltb - or upgrade the pagoda's/NC's so you are stronger for future ltb if you cash flow isn't good enough to really get far enough in the ltb.

    The payout at Level 10 is $17.25M with no multiplier (I have the + 25%). You can get all the prizes plus nearly buy that tank with every payout or two. The fewer and higher attack/defense items are always better in the long run. In the big picture, I see the LTB's as a no-brainer, and the best value in the game.

    Also keep in mind that people have modifiers for building upgrades prices and not items. I get 51% off building upgrades so subtracting that from the total makes it that much better.

    First of all, 12,5b is for the two people in CC without mods. 99% has upgrade mod(s). I have -51 and for me, it'll cost 6,2b. The LTB is a building that most likely never comes back. Why don't you get some free items that won't get replaced soon? I'm quite sure that every item from level 5 and higher will still be relevant for me in a year.

    Deadwater is spot on. A battle tank is a level based item - you can't buy it before level 165 - and almost no one with stats over 150K buys cash items; stat gain would be marginal. A limited building increases your IPH and that is what you normally do too. It may not always be the best upgrade according to IPH increase/upgrade hours, but at least you'll receive some gold items for in-game cash.

    That's a good way of looking at it too

    Also if we get new syn bonuses IPH and cash contributions will be as important as stats for entry into competitive syns or staying in them.

    Here's how I look at it. The level 1 prize is equivalent to about 3-4 tanks, depending on your stats. That's equivalent to over 80 million gold. Since the level 1 building only costs 50 million, I've basically gotten 80 million in units for 50 million plus a free building. You can apply the same idea to the building upgrades. At some point, the upgrade becomes more expensive than the prize, which is when would think about stopping.
