I have seven too, all using the screwdriver. Opened 11/19 tries. It does seem harder to get ATMs though, compared to previous event boxes.

I have 5 CC. Also found it harder to get ATM's, which I think makes sense as would like the option to open them to be fairer/better. Why do I need 100+ ATM's if I cannot open any.

URDead
04-18-2012, 07:10 AM
Yeah man, I hit 7 in the first day, nothing so far today but like 600 R points, which is still a handsome reward. Usually I get an extra mafia member or something useless. At least the R points I can use towards the end game strategy.

I got lucky with getting ATMs early. Some dude robbed me and lost and I won an ATM. So I attacked him out of spite like 10 times and got 4 more ATMs out of him at like 8 am yesterday. So I was opening all day without ever having to wait for one. I consider that a win, and I appologize to the guy I crushed and stole them from.

For any new users/new forum users: it's going to get exponentionally more difficult to open ATMs especially after your seventh open. It's not just you; it's the game. No fun in all easy opens, right?

I just got 9. All medium chance. Opening every day about every hour until sleep time (with the exception that if I happen to wake up, Im opening an ATM). The downside--last event my brain woke me up every hour from 2:30AM on. Darn "Crime City Clock" in my head! Happened again last night. I had 9 at this point last event, and got my 10th on the last day. After not getting 9 or 10 on any of the previous events, I was shocked. But I guess at this point I have to be a believer. I'm loving my Loaded Dice.

jmeijer
04-19-2012, 02:41 PM
Come on Funzio, I've just spent 800 gold and I didn't get my 9th credit card. Opened about 25 ATM's.

I don't know, maybe I should use the cheat too. Because I have the feeling that Funzio cheats on me..

Dangerous Greg
04-19-2012, 02:53 PM
I am using gold bars to open. 108 unopened boxes, open 1/hour every hour (set alarm) with now 25 failed attempts to get card 9!!! Am I screwed because I have so many unopened ATMs?

I don't mind playing it out but it feels like it is rigged to not allow most players to win no matter how many attempts are made. I just don't like the feeling that the rules change depending on some criteria other than chance. For example, I often think that there is a connection between how many ATM or banks you have and your chances to open a box. (inverse relationship). Others have suggested this; I just wonder if it is true or not. Anyone have some opinions?

I got 10 continues failures with only 1 ATM and 1 Credit Card in hand, so I don't believe this.

People feel this because we got hundreds of boxes since day 3 and almost got 7-9, most of us do not keep a detailed log and the feeling is like: dam, no credit cards for two days because I'm having too many ATMs

Dangerous Greg
04-20-2012, 03:06 AM
You might be right that having more ATMs doesn't decrease your chances. I am now at 31 open boxes with no additional credit cards. I am getting additional mafia members, cash, and other more or less worthless items. I have to say I'm probably going to give this one up. The odds appear to be atrocious!!!!

Geebs
04-20-2012, 03:44 AM
I believe that what people are saying about having a low amount of ATMs will result in better odds of getting a credit card... I can say that I was stuck on the 7th card until somebody robbed me like crazy an stole all my ATMs. Went and got one ATM from a mission ( fight bugsy at hillcrest, good odds in drop I find) and used medium option to open and recieved 8 card, one hour later, same thing, fight
Bugsy, get one ATM and open using medium chance, landed me my 9 card... So this is why from now on I always only carry 1 ATM at a time... Boy that big yellow truck is nice haha! Anybody else share a similar opinion?

But how many CCs do you already have? It's a fact that the odds of finding the next CC decrease as you find one. Getting to 7 seems quite easy for most - if you haven't then you have been quite unlucky IMO. By the time you are at 8, well you need an awful lot of luck to get 9 and then 10.

I have 8 and I am trying for 9. I have now opened 36 ATMs with no more CC. The only unusual thing is that I have 128 unopened ATMs. Is foolish as it sounds I spent over 1000 gold bars opening these ATM. I do that because the "medium" option failed to open the ATMs after 10 consecutive attempts.

Any insight (or sympathy) is appreciated.

I share your pain...the last event I went through the same, decided from the off to use gold to open boxes after getting frustrated with the event before that. Last time out I finally got the 10th pendant at the 39th attempt so don't give up! The event before that I got the 9th and 10th back to back after blitz opening a truck load of boxes with reset timer. I posted my results from the last event here:

http://www.funzio.com/forum/showthread.php?24013-Bank-Box-Event-Post-Mortem-Data&p=162568&viewfull=1#post162568

I'm using cash only option this time out as I'm not bothered about thew +40 attack skill points. I'm got dry runs of 8 and 5 a couple times...:( just the way it goes. The unopened ATMs are of no consequence...unless you decide to blitz open a ton using Reset Timer...my advice, don't even consider it for this event.

When all is said and done though, there are massive amounts of luck and/or gold involved. ust keep going as you are...finger crossed for ya! :)

Sasha54
04-20-2012, 08:13 AM
I'm sitting at 8.
Yesterday only managed to get 1 CC and I open pretty much every hour - using cash option all the way on this event.

I started off using the theory that keeping a low inventory of ATM's might increase my chances but I've been doing some of my TL goals and so they started accumulating - now have 24 on hand.

I will be extrememely happy to get 9 - don't expect to get the last one - never have before but I usually make it to the second last prize.

TenderPlacebo
04-20-2012, 08:14 AM
My advice would be stop spending gold, unless your prepared for consequences: not getting #10.
Although you do have a lot into it so it may be hard to stop at this point, just know there is no guarantee you will get to 10. It is all a gamble you could spend another 1000 and still not get it, it's happened before.
IMO this item isn't Worth that kind of gold.

I know people say 'don't try to see patterns and logic where there isn't any' but this event in my opinion has a much lower chance of getting cc's than the last one. I may be biased from personal experience but I've re-read the threads from the last event and this one and on the whole, albeit with some people not hitting the 10 mark, the last event had a higher sucess rate.
I'm aware there are still 2 days left but again people had more cards this far through the last event.
Just sayin....

Just failed again.....that makes 60 consecutive failures of not getting a CC. Never thought it would be this difficult to get card 9. 205 unopened ATMs.
we have almost the same case, I had 8 CC 2 days ago with 4 days to achieved the last 2 CC, but until now most of the time its "better luck next time", I am opening the atm almost 20 times a day

Man, that's nothing. Others have experienced far worse luck than that during an event, myself included. Try being stuck on 9 for 7 days straight, successfully open 100+ consecutive boxes and still not get the end item.

Mate, I'm pretty sure it is not. But I have 141 myself. I had about 56 during Burner event and this one feels for some reason EXACTLY the same. I think they lowered the drop rate to like 2-5% on 10th. I've burnt through 750 gold in 2 minutes to get my 8th emerald back then. You just unlucky this time man. So do I for now.

Stop using gold to get the 9th as it's not your day.
Use cash option till you got the 9th, as time is still on your side you have over 24 hour until the end when you get the 9th then use use gold if need be.

The other way around mate.

If you got 9 the chances of you having a credit card in you hand are far greater & by looting that you may need to open another 20-30 boxes to get the tenth and it be impossible without gold to open that many in time.

Exactly dudeman, it seems every event someone complains about the events. Hey its a free vent you dont have to spend gold to get the final item. IF you do, you do so knowing full well (after 4 previous events) that spending gold does not guarantee the final item. I burnt myself on the second event and have not complained since. I knew the outcome wasnt assured and am happy plodding along using in game money from now on and just got my 8th and 9th today. Im happy with these items.

yes that's what I do, just enjoy the game and event, dont get deep into it or you might just get a lot of frustration, but for the previous event, i got also until 9.
by the way, its the fourth day since I am chasing for the 9th credit card, I dont know why opening of atm gives me 90% of "better luck next time" on around 70 attempts, what a really bad luck for me
I would be happier if I got some items, especially those vehicles, I didnt get any vehicles in this event so far.

I think you are right about a few things here. If I wasn't opening with gold, I wouldn't be so uptight about my 89 failures to get a CC. As it is now, I have spent more than the prize is worth and I am unlikely to even see cc. #9... Forget about credit card10. It like a bad investment now....spent all this so far to get nothing.....
I just never imagined going through 89 openings without a single CC. I just have to let it go but I really like this prize!

I've spent the last three hours trying to get an ATM and no matter what I rob or attack I have only gotten one which I was attacked by someone almost 20 levels higher less than 2 minutes after having it and lost it.

I've been stuck at 9 and spent about $60 in gold and can't get the tenth one. This is the exact same thing that happened to me on the last one. It's supposed to be you can get one of 5 prizes, but they have rigged the game like the games at a carnival you play to get stuffed animals.

We're all getting robbed in this game if we're actually spending money. Just like the defense buildings that don't do a thing for you, if you don't believe me then have some Ron and attack you and compare the the numbers, they are the same. And then add up all your defense points and you'll see that you didn't get one single point for it.

So if you spent money of bodyguard buildings or from upgrading them or anything, you got robbed.

I think the word you're looking for is "scammed" or "defrauded." "Robbed" means physical force was used to separate you from your property. If you think a fraud has taken place, I suggest you contact your local authorities and wish you the best of luck with that.

I have 8 with half a day left... not looking good. I am pretty sure these events are not random at all. I have played all the events now and EVERY time I get between 6 and 7 of the lockboxes/safes/atms within the first two days, but I don't get any or rarely get any after that. It feels like Funzio wants to try and hook us and get us invested so that we have to shell out tons of money to get the last item in the end. (The only one I shelled out for was the Emerald Burner... i probably should have for the Loaded Dice). I also have the diamond heater, but that one came a bit easier and only required a little of my cash to get.

Funzio has a history of being quiet and not informing us of things (nobody knows how attack and defense skill work still).

It is all frustrating.
