So for three day, there is a +130% chance for UR, AND Epic units are in gold chests? Merry Christmas to me! But, it'd be better if it wasn't a 1/1000 chance. If anyone gets one, or knows someone that does, let me know, kinda wanna calculate odds or find out if its possible.

Thanks all, happy holidays, Gree a big thank you from me and most likely a few other players for the gifts (Rare trainer today!), "Epic" unit in gold chest (Maybe?), and for a great game, all games have flaws.

Not a very merry Christmas to me. While working so hard trying to stay on the 7th spot, I fell for this trap once again and wasted 600 gold bars that were supposed to be used for extra energy and morales for the boss event. So 6 gold keys plus 600 gold bars gave me 3 SR units and still no UR. EPIC? The chance will probably be less than getting hit by lightning.

I think it's 120% actually. That means that whereas before your chance of getting a UR might have been 1 in 100, now it is about 1 in 45.

People who have lots of money to spend wouldn't mind getting fooled over and over again as long as they get some eventually. Gambling seems to be part of the thrill of this game for many, sadly speaking.

So frustrating day, I've save up 11 gold just to wait for this moment when they increase chances of getting UR and EPIC item and sure enough freaking same sh$$ that you get on a daily basis....Luckily I stop buying 6 months ago for the same reason! I felt like being cheated...

You're not alone, bro. I feel you. Just look at the bright side - The last time you were fooled was 6 months ago and the last time I was fooled was TODAY. Feeling better and less frustrated now? Cheer up!

Must confess, I got suckered for the last time.

Not going to invest a penny more in this blatant robbery. I should have known better. Those puppy dog eyes of that 'epic' puppy got me.

Am almost at the stage where am not even going to bother playing.
No reward.
Units downgraded
Invasions/ boss events giving out crap that you could never max.

These people are nuts. They will kill their own game.

I contacted gree on 3 "players" that have them now. They replied that they bought several keys for the gold chests.... Idk was fooled or hoped spent 4x so 44 units 1 at and the rest rare. My epic lvl 30 was from the 2 boss event before this last one. So that is a real one... 1 player who finished the pvp last week has 2 lvl 50 one of each. I think they are programers...

At least 5-6 in the current PVP leaderboard own one epic or both. One player has 3 common interest and two silent swans.

I know a few people who got them and even some who got like 5 Epic units. Not sure if they spent a lot or just got lucky. Been out of things for a week traveling so haven't talked to any of the Lucky people yet. I know I got nothing but rare when the "bonus" started but before that I was landing a Refusal like every other Gold key so not sure what was happening there. Rewards were better without the bonus which doesn't make much sense. Either way I'm happy now that I can max two Refusals but would have loved to get that Epic tank. Wish I got a third refusal before the bonus event started.

I've received naught but rare for weeks now. My last "good" unit was Raynin's. That is obsolete too. I can't get through lvl 20 with the units I have, the only tanks I have are rare. The Myrmidon deal killed it for me. The huge increase in Raynin and ilk didn't help either. Refusals? I dare to dream.

I have so many refusals, working on getting my second one maxed, you want it?

I got 9 Refusals on Christmas Eve and Christmas day before the "bonus" started. After that got tons of worthless rares. I wish I got 3 more Refusals before they ruined my chances of getting them by "improving" my chances of getting them. I kind of wish they kept the Epics out of the chests too because now I have to be angry they didn't give me one when I was content that I had finally got some UR. Sadly a level 50 Refusal is nothing compared to a level 20 Common Interest which now are everywhere. I thought I was finally going to be able to contribute in the next Alliance war but probably every Alliance will have someone with an Epic. I feel bad for the guys who spent a ton to get their Epics by winning events only now to have to face guys with level 40 and 50 ones from getting lucky in the keys.

Ohhhhhhhh bronze keys?? How did you know I collect them?? After putting epics in the chests it really kills the want to do the events... Why spend all the time to earn something unique that very few have as a reward when you can pull it from a chest??

I hear what your saying, especially after you spent all the $$ to win the event, only to have other get the same for minimal payout and end up with same result or better ! Maybe Gree should not have Epics in chests although I would like one, but it takes all the Hard work, effort and $$ away from it

So I found out pretty much you are either getting Epics out of the chest or you're not. I know people who got several Epics and they got one after like two keys then another one 3 keys later and I know someone who opened 10 keys at once and got 2 swans. If you get them you are lucky because you will likely get tons of them. If you aren't getting them you are pretty much out of luck because there are others I know of like WitchKing who opened a ton of chests and pretty much just got rares. I'm unfortunately in the rare boat myself. Now we just need to figure out how to change our luck to be the ones getting Epics. The people I know getting them aren't cheating or even going through hundreds of keys they just are getting a lot luckier in the chests.

Why are people still competing for top 10 in any event now? It cost me $200 in the last boss event but only ended up on the 11th spot. Imagine how much you need to spend if you're determined to be on top 3 because you have to buy tons of extra energy and morales regardless of the strength of your squad. If you can afford spending $500 for an event, why not just spending $200 opening gold chests like you're in Vegas? You might just get lucky eventually.

What kind of squads do they have? I've noticed that depending on what kind of squad you have then it results in what kind of units you get. For example, me and I don't know 5 friends did a test. One of us had a squad of all level one commons, and they got an UR first key. I had all my URs in my squad, and got a might of the worker. The 3 others had
average SR and Rare squads, they got more, average rare and SRs. So maybe a random thing? Or GREE made certain units for certain squads?

This also goes for the fact that when I had tanks, I got infantry (and vice versa) and then when I had all recon, I got helicopters (and Vice Versa).

Hmmmm, GREE?

Interesting theory that I'll have to check out. I always get stuck in loops like where I keep getting the same units like a Pericles and then Shalla drones and finally got tons of Refusals. Then the people that get super lucky and get in the Epic loop make bank on like a maxed Common Interest or Swan (Swan seems more common). I'll try loading my squad with common units before I open chests and see if it changes anything.

I don't mind the loops though it would be nice if they ended sooner because I'm sick of getting the same SR's when I already have a enough for a maxed one or two. Didn't mind getting two Refusals as much though that one of course ended before I could get enough for a third which I wouldn't mind. Don't really need SR's anymore.

Striker1111
01-27-2015, 06:22 AM
Well I got in the Epic loop this time so I'm happy. I think a lot of people got Epics this time around judging by the fact that when I do the PVP the top guy in my list has a lvl 20 Common Interest or Swan. I now have the problem though that even with hundreds of units in storage I still bet I don't have enough to level up my Epics but it feels good seeing them there in my squad list. Close to 40 gold keys well spent and it has been a long time since I've ever said that about keys.

They show the most used unit I think so if they deployed like 5 of an UR unit and only used the Epic once or never used it then you would see the unit they deployed the most or the one they feel contributed most to the victory.

I used a whole lot of money on gold keys but never got an Epic unit - to be fair, they say there is a chance of an Epic unit and no guarantees of this. However, what puzzles me is that there are no keys for elite chests? I presume these chests can only be opened with gold bars.

I think that, I have suggested, there should be an option to buy epic units (obviously at a price due to their epicness) or perhaps complete certain puzzles over a period of time and then get your epic unit.

To be honest, on the boss missions etc., to get 1 million is achievable, but it requires the saving of a load of morale and energy, too. There would probably be a point you wouldn't be able to go beyond in the missions unless you have specific units. At the moment, I am on a 20+ level.

Still dreaming of a common interest though the new epic unit looks mouth watering...

I keep going through short luck spurts then long dry spells that last for months. I still can't believe 40-45 gold keys only got me 3 SR. They've never gone that cold before and at least I'd get 2-3 SR for every 10 gold I opened. Not that SR is anything exciting anymore but it still beats rares.
