View Full Version : Can't get past 7 Titanium Bars :(

I've opened about 17 boxes now. I used gold to,open the last 9. Got 3 titanium with a cash before switching gold guarantee. I'm up to 7 titanium bars and now with my last 5 gold opens, I get anything but titanium. Last 3 gold evens been a Capitol Tank 18/19 stats (something like that). It's a decent loot, but it's just Low Casualty - wish it was indestructible.

7 gold bars
5 x Capitol Tanks
1 - $100k
1 super soldier (whatever it's called)
1 extra ally
2 x 350 Valor

That's just from recollection - forgive me if I'm not exact - but you get the gist.

So I am stuck at 7 titanium with about 15 more to open. Only going to use my last gold open and go back to cash opens.

As a gold player - it seems like the carrot of the 10th bar is even out of my reach

I'll keep you posted if / when I finally get to 10 and the big tease of lower casualties.

I'm up to 6 bars, and I just got a bunch of boxes in one mission, so now I have 13 unopened. I know those will yield more $ and units than bars, but as long as I don't get an ally I will be somewhat satisfied. Who wants that?? That's easy to get..

I decided to decrease my ally list to see if it makes a difference in my strategy. I can always add later on.

Come ON Funzio - 300 Valor Points for a Lockox? REALLY?

I just got almost 1000 Valor Points on my raids because I completed behind the scenes Valor missions in the normal course of attacking people.

For the record, Valor Points are already EASY ENOUGH to get in the game so it isn't that special to be added as a lockbox loot :(

Please don't cheapen the event with limp loot.

JohnnyR
03-12-2012, 01:57 PM
Eh, it's almost a Super Hornet, and I'd value that at about 3 mil or approaching, much rather have that over a grunt or 100k. It is frustrating as heck to open a box finally and find that though after 10 tries though after getting 1k in valor...

I concur Mcdoc, valor points are limp loot, as well as an extra ally!
...although they may be "easy" to earn, at my avg. unit losses on attack/raids I would not call them cheap. In terms of Monopoly $$, I'm seeing +/- 5-6K per point, so a super hornet is running about $1,750,000 to 2,100,000 per unit!

Did you spend gold? How did you get so many opens? I've been quite active in the supply box event, and I only got 5 so far.

03-12-2012, 02:44 PM
youj don't try to understand to be honest it's just luck, did like 30 missions for 1 box and 100 or so attacks for 7 out of 4 box i got 3 T bar and 1 loot unit, it is seriously just random and pure luck

One thing JMC suggested way back was to redo the missions. My LLP has been doing this and beside picking up about 20 boxes so far has been able to get grunts and skill points. Eg after completing a complete set of missions six times you get 1 skill point.

You guys are actually way luckier than me. I played the beta for the event and they brought my progress over from there. I had an extra 6 and a half days. Since the event started on the public app, ive only gotten one bar.

After getting my 3rd bar, I've made around 20 attempts to open a box and still haven't gotten my 4th.

JohnnyR
03-12-2012, 05:22 PM
5x t-bars
2x supply frigs
2x 100k
2x 500k
2x 300 valor

NO GRUNTS! :-D
3 accidental bare hand attempts! :-C

Seem to be opening boxes at 2-3/8 tries.
Hopeful for the 6th bar tonight, won't rest till I get it.

5 bars
1 torpedo boat
1 supply ship
1x $100,000
2x $500,000
1x ally (party foul)
All with the rusty knife, with multiple failed attempts to open, mostly at the beginning. I also had one bare hands attempt by mistake.

I've gotten all of my boxes save one from PvE, the one exceptions was from PvP, which I got after about 30 attacks. I've stopped attacking, as I burned through about 2 million worth of units and two super hornets in the process (and temporarily made myself weak enough that another player stole a box from me, but I've fixed that now).

As for the rate of t-bar drops, I've had them drop at fairly even spacing, the last one just a couple of hours ago. I expect the next five will be progressively harder.

7 Titanium Bars
2 x 250k
1 x 125k
1 x 1.25m
1 x Supply Frigate (5/19)
1 x 500 Valour
2 x 300 Valour
4 x Military Police Truck (9/20)

All crates opened with a Rusty Knife and generally running at about a 35% strike rate.
All boxes from missions - 6 from hitting the Ballistic Missile Sub on the Navel Battle map!

To be fair, there are still 5 days left on the event so it is a possibility that people won't need to use gold to open the crates.

I haven't used any gold on opening the crates and have 7 after 3 days - although opening crates every hour (except when asleep!) has helped!

I have also been opening on the hour except while sleeping. Have done ok the past couple days but not one bar today with only 4 opens all day. At 5 bars still. Hoping tomorrow will be better.

I got my second bar today. I have opened several boxes all with the rusty knife..three Capitol Battle Tanks..four Torpedo Boats..500k..100k...and one Allie..woohoo. Leveled up three times in the process and now have 9 boxes. Been attacked numerous times today by rivals that should win but have left me some cash..I think my defensive skill points have really helped in fending them off.

Looks like I'm gonna be stuck on 7 also for at least 24hrs if it follows CC patterns. Then 8 and 9 were easy and 10 just refusssssssssed to drop even though i tried for 48hrs. I think after number 9 is where the gold option really comes into play.
I havent been tempted so far, let's see if funzio can entice me...lol

Not having much luck with the rusty knife either. 62 supply boxes is 2 1/2 days to open all of them and they keep piling up. I'm glad they give us a great hint about how gold will open them 100% of the time. I wish at the end of the event you could trade in your left over supply boxes for a little cash or sell them during the event for a set cash value maybe 1000xlevel or something.

Unless you plan to spend a lot of gold, i still don't see you getting the armed infirmary. Some of the guys that have got the armed infirmary already have spent over 6000 gold doing it.

Ouch... 6000 gold. Luckely those guys are so loaded in real life (hopefully for them).

I'll keep fighting with my free army for the 5 platinum bars. That would be a succes!

The last map you're currently working on. I regularly got 2 in a row and 3 on multi-hit targets at Insurgent Block, other guys are getting them at Naval Battle. I don't think it matters where really, just do the missions and you'll get them-and not the cheap mssions either.

I'm up to 8 bars now, and I have 22 boxes left. I have used gold on some of them, and the rusty knife on some. I will say this; it's very obvious that this promotion is really only designed to make you buy gold, then use it on the boxes to increase your chances of getting good loot, and then buy more gold because you used it all up during the damn promotion...smh.

I actually don't have anything against gold (which is obvious because I have purchased some), but I think that for promotions like these they should be equal so everyone can take advantage and not just gold players. It should be truly random who wins want, and not based on what you use to open a box. The more boxes you are able to get through missions, attacks, etc. should determine your chances. This would make for a more level playing field down the line.

Cool. Just about every hour I hit it. Energy cost is 370 and I'd say 60-70% chance of a box each hit. Works great but xp is high. Plus you'll get a nice cash flow from it. I make around 4 mil a day on it.

Ty. Lol yeah I was lucky enough to have a tip on mine. Rudy yet a tip none the less ;) It took me around 13 - 14 tries to open just that one box.. But I got lucky.

I just got 6 TB so far and tried about 15 times opening the 7th bloody supply box with knive still did not get any TB.
I think this event is just a purely faker so all camper can level up and can get attacked by the high level player gold player.
Very sad luring people like this...

I couldn't agree with you more. I had been trying to camp before this event gettting my income and stats respectable as suggested by all, BUT, I cannot help myself with these darn boxes..Now I am 4 levels higher and seeing all my patience and some army disappear! I am only at three bars..Some decent loot when they open though. I really doubt as a free player I can get ten bars. I have yet to miss an awake hour attempting to open them by the way with my rusty knife.

You know we are all acting like we only have 1 day left of this event when we really shouldn't be worrieing with right around 4 days left still that gives us plenty of time to get to that going crazy point when that timer says only 12 hours left lol. Really and truly we ate all probably on the right track with the bars we have. And for the people who only have 2-3 you still have the same chance we did when we had 2-3 so you may get a 2 or even a 3 bar day if you try every hour like a lot of us do. But it does seem like it is a totally random thing. Sometimes it just takes luck I guess. Wish everyone the best of luck and hope to see your posts if you hit that 10 bar mark :)

I just got my 8th bar. Was quite surprised and pleased at the same time. My guess is the next will be much more dificult and the last close to impossible.

On the flip side it is a lot of fun. Did buy some gold but not to open boxes. Too random for me to justify the cost, so ended up using it on the war crates that came out. Holding some back though in case I get itchy at the end and want to gamble some on some boxes.

Basically those of us with addictive personalities are going crazy on it while the casual person is probably getting some actual work done. :-)

Well Crime City just had the same event come out so that will keep some of us preoccupied while we wait for our supply boxes to cool down.

Crime City just started a New Event tonight but instead of lock ones it's safes. I guess these events prove profitable just like the unique holiday gold units :) - I know I'm proud of my Chocolate Submarine & now my Irish Fighters ( all 4 of them ) as I was alerted to the high stats on the boards and bought them before they got nerfed.

I don't think we're going to make it stricker. I can't even find boxes anymore.

Finding boxes hasn't an issue for me - I have 63 un-opened boxes - I'm just extra frustrated that even when opening them with Gold - I've been getting worthless loot like MORE Valor :(

I wish I could do Funzio a solid and brag to you guys that opening with Gold has been worth it - but instead I have to tell you guys that you should resist the temptation to buy gold for this event if you are already committed to being a free player as it is MORE frustrating to spend gold with a guarantee open and get limp loot.

Funny thing is - in my PvP I am getting a lockbox about about every 3 attacks and I'm also getting all kinds of background Valor missions accomplished that I didn't even keep track of - so I got 2 missions completions earlier that BOTH paid out over 600 valor points and then opened a lockbox for 300 valor. What a let down.

I think I saw one person already post that they got their 10th Titanium Bar - I hope so - gives me hope. Now I just hope there is a way to successfully track the casualty rate bonus as being legit :)

It is hard to resist using gold to open. So far I have not used any and I'm up to 6 but knowing the next bars are gonna be way harder and take longer to get.

Ive been doing more pvp today for boxes then pve and every other attack I'm getting a box now. I have over 20 stacked up waiting to be opened.. But I am enjoying all the valor missions and loot.. Given a bar would be better but atleast with the valor you can buy somewhat decent units still.. And it's better then a ally grunt ;)

I'm glad you were able to Benefit from the Irish fighters while they were still up. I started to buy a few but was unsure of what they would do when they seen their mistake.

Hopefully we shall see someone soon that has looted 10 bars without gold that would be something an show is there's a chance to make it without gold though a low one.

Mcdoc
03-14-2012, 12:30 AM
Oh yeah - I had 5 tanks from the opened boxes - but like I said before - the stats were mediocre and they had a low casualty rate. I just checked and I'm down to one - so they had a shelf life of less than 3 days :(

03-14-2012, 12:35 AM

So it's been 48 hours since I started this post - opened about 25 more boxes (15 with Gold) and I still haven't gotten my 8th Bar :( - That was after I had already gone 24 hours and a few opens with no bars.

I got 63 un-opened boxes - man I hope to reach 10 in time :)

Agent Orange
03-14-2012, 06:14 AM
The whole process seems rigged, not just the lame loot when you finally get one open but it seems like the game itself has a sweet spot in terms of a best time to try. The reason I say this is that I open boxes for my original player, my LLP and now for my two brothers who gave up. I find oddly that if one gets a box open then at least one other or even two do. But more often then not nobody gets one.

I agree as a free player this would have been a nice thank you but instead it's leaving a bad taste in many players mouths because it seems pretty obvious that your odds of getting 10 bars is out of this world and even gold buyers aren't impressed which is even worse from a customer satisfaction standpoint.

Had I been reading that using gold does actually help I might have considered buying some but based on comments here it's not likely now.

Hugh Bris
03-14-2012, 06:32 AM
Using gold doesn't help. I've spent about 500 gold and still not past 8 bars. I do think it's random but it would be nice to be able to get that item 10. Oh well. I will just try to hit the boxes more often and stop spending gold. It's just not worth it. I think it should be looser for everyone - not just gold players but as you can see it makes no difference.

I will say that I think the fight mechanics are a lot better these days but that's an unrelated subject.

Man - I really wih I could brag to you guys that opening with gold was the trick - but it's even more frustrating to get 300 valor points with a Gold Guaranteed open than to get a fail with a rusty knife :/

If Funzio was smart, they'd let about every 3rd Gold bar open a Titanium Bar and watch the players FLOOD the servers to buy Gold.

I think I'm going to apply for a Marketing Position @ Funzio & promise them a 500% increase in Gold Sales if they will just implement a few of my sales ideas :/

My experience tell me that with the number of TB one get increasing, the probability to get a TB from an opened box is fixed, what changes is the probability of opening an box.
So, if using gold, may be better to use it on openning the box on the last day of the event.

Only get 5 t-bar, this event is just a fking scam. Realize just two seconds...two months ago, they increased the casualties rates. People were blaming and crying. They gave an answer like "we know the problem, and still working on". Then, nothing!
And now, that's soooo weird, an event with a 10 t-bars unit which reduce casualties.
People were turtleling while PVP was broken, that's a problem for Funzio, some of them playing less than before.
And now, those ones woke up, thinking to farm t-bars. People are PVP again, that's a good point for Funzio.
But, everybody knows that it's something like impossible to get the 20% casualties rates without using gold...Then, i'm sure plenty of them will buy gold. Another good point for Funzio.

To conclude, have you already forgotten the two past months? Dont you think it's just calculated?!

Let's discuss...

Sorry War Priest but the "Bang against a rock" option is a no go... think about it. None of us like getting that extra ally already. Well, if the ally comes out of the box all battered and beat up, he'd be utterly worthless!!! Heck, who wants an crippled ally! ...really!

Bronco - bummer! ...sounds like a rough day at the office and a Monday at that! Maybe devs will give us event sick leave. Especially those that have been working this thing overtime or all night! ....like, Luke there.

JohnnyR - none on raids here, but I'm not much of a raider. Only 6 of my 59 drops have been from attacks and 3 of those have been from today. I guess it took a while for a lot of players to stockpile numerous un-opened ones, right?

I've opened 3 boxes today from a total of 8 attempts w/the tip-less rusty knife. 500k / capital battle tank / 300 valor
...still sitting at 8 tb.

100% agreed McDoc. A complainer paints a target on himself. I usually ally good sports, and raid the rest. Sometimes going tit for tat is fun, usually if I lose a bunch of cash I'll try to get it back first and then ally.

I work at night and it seems i've had the best luck early in the morning when i get home (EST like 3-6 am), pulled like 3 titanium bars out of 8, and got me to 8 total. however I think i'd have more luck with these rusty knives if i just sat on one and then wished the box open. cause before that run ( and yes I did break down and buy some gold) i was like 0-14 for even opening.

I'm just gonna look at the boxes as if their google. I dont understand how it works but if I bang enough keys, sometimes i get the site i'm looking for.

But the leveling will be worth it when I get that response unit will it be with or with out gold one way or another it shall be mine.. I did not lvl up and spend all that time for nothing just to give up. But when I start something I like to finish it despite how hard or time consuming it can be.

Nice work WP. I'm still stuck at 7, doubt I'll make it to 10 with only 2 days left.

Now stuck on 8 - about 12 attempts with 3 opens since my last TB :/

Go go go go go - still have hope. Have 168 un-opened boxes too. Wish I could donate 120 of them.

I have been using rusty knife all day so far and I have had 5 opens already but no bars since I used gold once last night to open for my 8th bar. Gonna start using gold for the rest of my opens after this streak stops. But will not spend more then a $20 on it plus I still have to use some to switch nations so hopefully I'll get lucky..

Why oh why?!?!

I have now been on 8 bars for 3 days. All I keep on getting is supply boats, elite brigadiers and $!! With only 1 day left I might have to resort to using gold to open the boxes!

Right that is it.

After 5 failed attempts to open the box - the devs really need to get a new supplier of rusty knives as mine are all broken!! - I have at last resorted to buying gold and knowing my bloody horrible luck i will get titanium bars in the next two boxes I open!

I think the devs could have at least provided a button under the rusty knife option for Tetanus Shots on sale! 5 gold bars!

Is it true that for every attack/raid by you (or against you) that you lose, you will lose a unit? Or only sometimes?

The cynic in me does see it as a blatant attempt to dangle a truck shaped carrot in front of us to get us to part with our hard earned pennies. Has anyone actually got 10 bars yet? I'm up to 7 without spending a bean but am running out of time. It could be one of those finishing returns where the more bars you have, the less chance of getting one so when you are on nine you have to buy loads for that tiny chance of getting the last one.

Nice. Well out of 24 chances I hope you do. I still have 8 bars and I am now using gold to open but still no luck. Down to 170g once I run out then it's back to the rusty knife. It will be a big let down if we don't get it.. I probably will not buy gold again for a long a** time if I don't get those last 2 bars.. Wish you could trade in cash for opens I have millions to throw away if I could..

I to am stuck there and spent the money for gold. I have lost items and if I click the medium chance I always come up empty. I have lost over 200k and was not attacked and the timer has been rest many times like my oil rig upgrade is stuck. it get to 20 min left the goes to 4hours over and over again. I have tried to contact Funzio. I will not use Gold anymore.

As the original author of this post:

FINALLY - with 216 boxes left and after opening close to 100 - about 25 with gold - I got my 10th Titanium Bar and my Response Unit - 10th one with a Rusty Knife :)

- errrr - I leveled up past 80 during this event and MY unit is now called the "Armed Infirmary" - I wonder if the Stats are higher than the other one?

Now we just gotta figure out a way to track the 20% casualty stat to see that it for sure will make a difference.

I hope so eof those guys who study the game get the 10th bar before its over.

Actually - I'll put a special St Patty's Good Luck charm on this post so whoever is at 8 bars will finish to 10 if they get 5 more tries in before it's over :)

You didn't need to buy anything these were automatically added when you got the right number of bars.

I kept getting boxes every 2-3 missions but wouldn't let me loot anything, and with 2days 10hrs left i had 8 titanium bars and when the event ended I still had 19 boxes, what was the point of getting the boxes if you never got a chance to use them to loot the bars?? Anybody else have this problem and think its not right?

frostino
03-18-2012, 07:07 AM
What a coincidence that I never got past 7 and I didn't use Gold to open any boxes. I used the Medium chance method of opening the boxes every single hour except the 8 hours I slept. In the first 2 days, I got 5 titanium bars. They just want you to spend money on Gold to even try to get to 10 titanium bars. I had about 30 boxes left when it ended.

I had 7 bars before bed last night, and read the rules that said that inventory for the game would automatically be added. I looked through my inventory this morning and there was nothing to show for the last three days of opening storage boxes. Were we supposed to purchase the helicopter that was available for 7 bars? Thanks
