Right on schedule I obtained my 9th box last night right before bed around 11p EST. I expect heartbreak from here on out.
Also got a first strike ship (41/45) at the same time,nice gravy. Not sure why. I was half asleep but I couldve swore it said it was an indestructible unit. Could this be right?

Just a FYI to my peeps. I had 8 nukes yesterday (2nd day) and no luck yet thus far after that. I imagine I'll get to 9, but I have never been lucky enough to get to 10 yet in events. I always use the medium option. It is 118K a pop for me now.
OK, my peeps aren't peeping or standing on their heads chanting for me. I've had 7 opens and 12 fails (last 9 in a row) since my last nuke. I didn't think the 9th would be that hard, the 10th I never expect to get. I missed out on 5-6 chances to open due to work yesterday, but the last 9 fails in a row using medium is the longest I have gone in any event without getting anything using the medium chance (118K a pop). If history repeats itself within a few more tries I may get 2-4 opens in a row after a dry spell, so I hope a nuke drops then instead of valor.

Seems to be happening to everyone here. I've been stuck on 8 warheads for a day and a half now even though I'm not getting all that many "Sorry's", just lots of valor, units, grunts, etc.

04-27-2012, 08:07 AM
Have been opening 20 hours non stop for the 10th, got 1x60k, 1x explosive expert, 1x police truck, and 17x sorries..
Only one word : BRUTAL!!!

lanemondo
04-27-2012, 08:59 AM
I have the rest of the bonus units in previous events but this so far has been the most difficult to get to 9 or 10.
Just opened another with medium option and got 300 val. Can't get over how hard it's been over the last 24 hours for me.

only grunts and money for me, still stuck at 7.
I think I will stop to open boxes if its just to get grunts.

Why Funzio doesn't want to give the possibility to delete grunts, someone knows ?

I picked up 8, 9 and 10 this morning. All cash opens, no resets and no 'round the clock gaming. So...it's doable. Good luck to all still in the hunt.

While I still like these events, if you're already a heavy gold spender these events ultimately mean absolutely nothing in the greater aspect of the game and you're much better off in getting the "sure" thing.

Once you reach a certain attack or defense ally ratio level (i.e., a score of 30 or more in regards to your attck or def divided by your ally count x 4), hardly anyone ever bothers you regardless of any bonus and you can attack pretty much anyone.

Plugger
04-27-2012, 09:43 PM
Wohoo, I just received my second extra ally! One more to go and maybe I get the special "grunt" unit. Still 9 on the warheads count, btw. Congrats to all that have received the grand prize.

Copenhagen
04-27-2012, 10:43 PM
So, I've been preaching not to get your hopes up, being fully aware of how these promos operate. As predicted, here I am, once again, sitting with 8 for the last two days and 30 straight no nuke attemts.

Question is, why am I surprised? (rhetorical and, yes, I know the definition of insanity)

Sepi
04-27-2012, 11:16 PM
Just got my 10th warhead. :)

Congratulations! :D So, does it reduce time from 3 min. or generate additional Energy every 3 minutes? And the question that is everytime asked, which option did you use? :)

I also got my 9th Warhead (same time as 9th Painting in CC, lucky me!), 31th of 72 attemps to open with medium option.

Energy refill at 60s and now it's a increment of 5 instead of 3.

I use blow torch from 7 warhead onwards.

At 7th warhead, waiting on timer to try again.. 2 more boxes, then looking for more spread across this battlefield.

vball
04-28-2012, 12:37 AM
Ok this is the worst event ever for me. Notice it is 1:30am my time and still awake, stupid me but want to try one last time before bed.

Finally, finally got the seventh. I really want the ninth and have written off getting the 10th, but wow it has been hard. Most of my cases are not opening and then gaining some cash, valor a few loot units and of course the glorious grunt.

On the bright side picked up 4 grunts. Ugh

Big John
04-28-2012, 12:41 AM

I've got 2 warheads, the ones not taking part have more.

Astonishingly Im still stuck on 9. Opening hourly with the middle option.The worst part of it all is that Im getting absolutely no decent consolation prizes. Little cash, no valor points...mostly just failures to open. I have a bunch of boxes Im sure Ill be stuck with by the end of this event. Accumlated 5 dragon soldiers.....yeah!!! (sarc)

RonaldPVincent
04-28-2012, 07:00 AM

Thanks for the reply.

Whats strange (to me) is that the prizes are for 3,5 and 7 boxes. I got the first strike unit in conjunction with my 9th warhead.

I've been stuck on 8 for two days and opened well over 60. Just had 4 grunts in a row:mad:
Last time I spend gold on the event, the bonus isn't even worth it to be fair.

Has anyone else noticed that as these events wind down finding the actual boxes becomes increasingly easier? Simulaneously of course the odds of finding nukes have evoporated almost entirely.

Then on the next one I just reset the timer and used money to open and guess what ....

I been mainly trying to sit this event out after frustration ,but in the need for money,and lack of patience,did some attacks/raids. It took me 53 attacks/raids just to even get a crate. Once I did get the first crate,I got others fairly easy not really trying to get any. 5 out of 6 crates are warheads,the other was 300 valor. So ironically now tha I'm not reallyd trying to even do the event,I'm getting warheads fairly easy and on top of it,I don't even care for the warheads,I want cash or valor . Go figure.

I've been on 9 for almost 3 days now, successfully opening 24 boxes since. The rest are sorries. Starting to think they are not giving the 10th to free players 2 times in a row on events like this. Maybe I will get 10 on the next event. I don't know. Quite disappointed, but not that surprised.

Copenhagen
04-28-2012, 10:00 PM

10 for me just now, I got my son to open the box, so he was really pleased too. First time to 10, this is my 4th event. I opened with gold for the last two warheads, not resetting the timer, which used under 600 gold. I'm not a big gold player, and I have enough left for a bonus crate! Good luck to those still trying, I'm off to celebrate with a bottle off beer!

Got to 10 on 2nd day switched from Iran to Russia. A player speeded me up by attacking and taking my boxes every hour and i had to open boxes fast. There is no difference between Iran and Russia after the event which Funzio is trying to resolve.

Agent Orange
04-29-2012, 02:12 PM
Don't forget unless the devs have changed the programming you can continue to open boxes after the event ends. BUT you cannot close or crash out of the app. You must keep it open which keeps the weapon box icon at the bottom left of your screen. If you crash you are done, if you close the app you are done. In the last event my brother got a document 8 hours after the event ended.

But you can't attack folks because that will crash the app and even doing a lot of other things crashes the app at least on IOS devices other than an iPad 3.

Hivesy
04-29-2012, 02:39 PM
same old same old.

I find these events always go the same way for me, if I wasn't such a happy soul I'd say the system was set up to earn the maximum money for Funzio, now's there's a thought. I'm a light gold player but I play events for free, I don't even spend game cash anymore to get a 'medium' chance of opening, it's all bare hands.

Day 1, for some reason it's really hard to get boxes/crates/briefcases, you end up being far more active then you want to be. Part of the plan I suppose.

Eventually you do get a couple of boxes and I get one open. Once I get 3 or 4 boxes I then seem to get them drop every time I sneeze. I try to open probably about 14-15 times a day. I average one warhead per day.

I always get the items for 3 and 5 parts.

I always get the 6th part but NEVER get the 7th part. EVER. On day 7 I might as well not bother logging in to the game as it's a no go, presumably Funzio's system goes in to full 'make you buy gold' mode.

I currently have 28 boxes, I'm going to bed in 2 hours, I know I won't get the delta trooper. Shame really as he's a cool mofo.

Don't get me wrong I love the events, I'm not complaining about 2 free indestructible units every time an event runs. It's just getting a little predictable now.

Hello guys and dear Funzio Team,

I'm new to this Forum but i play Mw for arround half a year. I'm alrdy lvl 102 right now. About this events: Can u tell me the Drop Rate for Nuclear War Heads by using Gold? Today i spent arround 50 Euro to open boxes. I oppened arround 30 boxes with Gold, and i got 1 (!!!!) Warhead. This is a f***ing joke in my opinion. I got arround 10 Drone Tanks, 5 million $ and 1500 Valor. Come on, this suxx. I generate an Income of arround 500k per hour.. And by completing missions i get arround 2000 Valor by using all my Stamania. This Drone Tanks just suck. They got 20/20 and a cas rate of medium. This is a joke -.- My Venal Fighter which i'm farming right now, got 39/24 amd got a low cas rate + they're for free. So tell me Funzio, it this ok? If the Drone tanks would be indestructable it would be ok, but otherwise this just sucks. Tell me funzio, why should i buy and use gold, if i wont get the 10th item anyway? I see no reason there, to buy Gold anymore for this events. Many other players will do the same, cause it's true. I'm frustrated now and some other gold players like me will be too. You should in rease the Drop Ratio, atleast for those boxes which are opened with gold.

It would be nice if i could get some answers.

With kind regards, JuSt.SiCk

War Priest
04-29-2012, 03:08 PM
Gold doesn't help your chances of a drop. It just guarantees an open. I used about 3K gold to finally get to 10 this event. A few events ago I used 3K gold and still never got to 10.

Reached 8 boxes yesterday, still hoping that i might reach nine, i would be happy with that as i reached nine on my first even and 7 on the second. Id like to think that we all invest time and gold in the game as well as the events so don't know why the rant above is about.

But can understand the comment about reaching nine and not been happy, it can be frustrating not reaching the last item, but think of it this way if you reach nine for this even you have got 4 free units instead of the usual three. That doesn't happen often, or has it ever happened before.

I decided this time around I would actually buy gold because I wanted the 65% time reduction in energy recovery. I had already gotten 7 nuclear warheads either through the free or money options. I just needed 3 more. So I bought $20 worth of gold. Enough for 16 box openings. I figured based on the rate I've been getting warheads so far, that's gotta be enough, and then some. I think on my 2nd try I managed to get one more nuclear warhead, but I'm down to my last try and I have gotten no more. I can't believe it. I feel like a sucker. They tease you with a prize and don't let you have it. I feel like I just got ripped off by a crooked street salesman. They trick you into giving more and more money for something you're never gonna get. Congrats, Funzio, for getting me to fork over $20. Now that I know what kind of company you are, I won't be back.

This has been the absolute worst event I have participated in so far. From the very beginning, the results have been sub par. For the first time, my first box did not open; I knew this was a bad omen. Secondly, I kept getting the same items over and over and over. Whatever I received when I used the medium option (expcept the war head), I would get the exact same thing when I reset the timer and opened with gold. This also happened repeatidly. I feel like I completely wasted my time and money on this one!!!!!

Got to 8 pretty easy on Thursday, only took about 40 attempts. Since then (x=Sorry): x - x - x - x - x - explosives expert - x - X - military police wagon - 300,000 - x - x - military police wagon - X - 300,000 - x - x - x - x - x - x - x - X *- x - x - x - Explosives Expert - X - x - X - x - x - 60,000 - x - x - x - x - 100 points - military police truck* - 60,000 - extra ally. - x - heavy artillery - x - x - x - x - x - x - x
That's 50 attempts. I've stopped playing on the iPhone, about ready to dump it from the iPad also. Greedy bastards at funzio should not have altered the chances once you reach a certain level. Screw them, their events and this game.

I used more than 3000 gold. The indestructible unit is a good prize but if I spent that gold on crates, that`s over 60 crates.

I've been stuck on 8 for 3 days. Had a 34 hour period where i only opened 2 boxes. That seems to happen every time on the 3rd and 2nd last days. Today i have been opening boxes and a low rate, but i've been opening them which is still an improvement. No hope of getting the 10th, and chances of getting 9 are slim.

someone posted a day or so ago they got 9 and then 10 the next hour. for some reason i believe them, and i think its possible. I am leaving my app open as long as possible to get this unit. its gotta be worth a try.

too bad i don't have many boxes to open after the events over, cuz i got attacked like crazy since i re-entered this rivals list. Also too bad im not lucky at all. I tend to be 3-4 bars behind the majority of players, every event. Then when they get stuck on 9 i catch up to 8. Then i get stuck on 8 and never get any more.

Titanium bar event and secret doc event i had like 75 boxes by the end. Plane parts and nuclear warhead events i struggle to keep a few boxes and ended both with like under 5 boxes.

Hi to all, here is my experience during this event
day one
tried 20 opens costins $109k per try, and got 7 warheads, 4 of tuem in a row, I feel somewhat sorry because I fought a player for valor points and stole 3 boxes which all contained warheads.
day two
at 3 pm got warhead #8, since then it has been a very dry spell getting 90% "sorry" from my tries.
after 4 1/2 days of getting some units, 500vp and some cash that it kot even closed to the 10 milion I have spent to date I got nuke #9, with only 27 chances for part # 10 left. and again a new dry spell was upon me by 4 am on the last day, so I decided to used my well saved gold bars (980) and start getting cash, drones, vp and riot busters, finally, thank heaven!!! after blowing in the past 5 hours 680 gold bars I got part #10 and the falcon which replenished 5 energy points every minute.
I can say that this event has been the most stressful and expensive yet (it was very expensive due to my financial situation and the gold bars I purchase I try to use them wisely, this is an awesome game and every penny I use is worth it.
I am glad it is over for me with a happy ending, I do not thi k I will be this lucky in the next event since I am almost out of gold bars and do not think will be able to purchase any in a while even if I wanted.
I sincerely hope and wish all of you out there, to get part #10. since i. the end this will only benefit Funzio since every one that is not camping will lv up faster and the game will become more active.
Cheers to all and I am so glad it is finally over!!!!!!

This is my 3rd or 4th event. I can't remember which. Each time I get to 8 and never even sniff 9. This time I have set my timer to open a box every hour during the day, not setting it at night. Now I work and have a family, so realistically I could have opened 50% of the boxes during the day. I have been so into this that the past 2 nights, I have been just waking on my own several times and opening a box. I've been at 8 for about 2 days now. I would like to tell funzio I'm pi**ed and will never play again. I would like to tell you all that it's crazy to do this to yourself. But it's fun and I'm sure I will do it again. Now as I write this my alarm went off and I opened another box. Number 9 warhead. Funzio, you suck....I was just about to go to bed. Work is coming early in the morning. Y'all have fun.

Major disappointment
04-29-2012, 08:34 PM
Six boxes left, one hour, eight warheads found, less than 3 1/2 hours left. I'm going to bed. The chance of getting the tenth warhead are as good as the chance of me doing another event. This crap ain't fun, it's frustrating. I don't play games to be frustrated. 1-8 in 2 days, now 51 attempts and no warhead, they cranked up the odds too much at 9.

siL
04-29-2012, 08:53 PM
last night went to sleep and miss my 4 tries, where I should have set the alarm each hour to wake up, but maybe because I have did it for the last 3 days, I haven't got enough sleep and went to a comma last night...wake up at 4.30 in the morning, and since then opening boxes each and every hour...
tried to open with gold twice, but only got 300k and 100 valor, and didn't want to spend anymore gold...
been busy with work, but still set the alarm in 1 hour interval to open boxes each and every time...
5 minutes ago, I just got my 10th to my surprise...think I have no hope whatsoever anymore...I cliked the cash open, leave it be, and do my work again...and when I got back, I see a very beautiful picture ever...(which I have already forgotten, because the last picture of it I saw is 3 days ago)
now got 1,500 gold in my pocket, have spent 30 gold to open box, will open a few crates, are thinking to change my Iranian flag (don't know to what yet...maybe Russia, because of the 10th item), and are going for a loooooonnnggggg camping upgrading my base and economy, with little attack and raids from other player I hope since my stat have gone up a bit nicer now...
for me overall this event is a learning point...mainly learning a lot about human nature, and their inclination towards more and more and more and more...really happy at the moment though...
for all of you out there...good luck with the rest of the event!!

Yes. You need to stock up on boxes now and after the event ends, keep the app open and it will still allow you to open hourly. Don't do pvp or pve to make it crash. Once the app is closed or crashes, it's all over.

Funzio cheats!

During last action I pretty quickly collected 9 propellers, and had 3 more days to collect the last one. Well, it didn't work out - Funzio was not going to give me a chance. All I would get from you was trash.

This time I quickly got 8 warheads, and again had another 3 days to go. Same situation again - just trash, no warheads. Well, I purchased gold then, just to try Funzio's integrity... But it's all the same - I got about a dozen of allies, some trash, and NONE of the warheads. I spent all gold, but no warheads.

Yes, Funzio cheats. One could predict it.

Friends, I will never NEVER buy gold again. It's so disappointing.

Finally managed to get number 10 (previously 7, 8, 9 so I guess it was destined). Wish I could say it was completely free. Probably shouldn't tell the story til after the event is over, but...I had 9 nukes and 14 boxes left after missing most of yesterday and today, and I had been opening at 45 past the hour, but slipped to 3 past. Ticked me off, so I decided to use gold just once to reset and open. Bang, got it! This one is pretty good, second only to the faster build times, man I wish I had that one.

Hope we can get a couple of weeks off til the next one!

It's so disappointing.I'm on my iPad, so I don't have the actual quote, but what I said the other day is true, gold guarantees you nothing except speeding things up. It's random, and gold does not change the odds. Using gold on these events is not a recipe for success unless you have very deep pockets, and not always then.

9 - Warheads
57 - Sorries
10 - Units
3 - $$ (total $420K)
2 - Valor (total 200)
3 - grunts

Total: 9 WH in 84 attempts, all crowbar cash.

Good luck to all in the final 24 hrs.

Last 24 hr update:

3 - Grunts

Total event: 9 warheads in 114 attempts.

Although I intended not to spend gold on these events again, after three days sitting at 9, I figured the odds of burning 390 gold was worth it. Without going on a complete rant about the "devious" nature of these promos, I just have one question for Funzio. Here it is:

"What analytics support your projections of maximizing profitability that offset disgruntled customers with such stingy drop rates on a fake jet?"

I guarantee I will not waste $$ on future promos.

Final Reckoning:

9 X warheads
8 X 500 valor
6 X Armed Lookout (7/16)
2 X Riot Buster (10/18)
3 X Squadron Leader (12/22)
10 X Drone Tank (20/20)
6 X $1.25m
7 X $250K

Attempts to open: 114 (106 game cash; final 8 in gold @ 120)
Opens: 51
Sorry: 63

Analysis - can't complain! Seemed to come away with heaps of money, a good amount of valor, more than 20 units (which have never died on me) and 4 indestructible units.

Of course disappointed, but certainly not going to grumble. I wasn't attacked once after Day One and therefore didn't lose units, and due to that and the stack of cash I received, I built both space centers!

Have to say, though, next event I will go all out to the ninth item and then stop trying at that point; the tenth will always have to be an unexpected bonus.

You guys might not see me for a while - taking a well deserved break!

Got 8 bars. Invested some gold bars(240) in the last 2 days to get at least on more nuke but nothing. Finished event with 194 crates unopened. Got screwed on some cash that Ive found in the crates but not received in my purse. Lesson learned: no more real cash invested, play free since there are less chances to become bitter and twisted.

I think the people who work at funzio are the ones who wrote the posts saying they found the 10th warhead. This was all a con so they could get a bunch of people to buy gold, they just put out a few good posts saying they struck it rich and everyone else gets excited and tries harder.

@major, participated in 4 events yet, 2 times at 9, one time at 8. entered with 9 to the last 15 minutes, bit the bullet, got 240 or so gold, used them to reset timer, and 6 minutes into the countdown, GOT IT :)

So, no, it IS possible to get the winner item, and it IS logical for only a few to get it, which makes it a prize :)

Yes, i am happy, but for previous 3 events, i didn't get the 10th bar to win the prize. thats the whole point of events, which actually hands out a 500+ gold unit for much much much cheaper, and at times for free

not to forget all those freebies on the way

Well my son woke me up screaming for a bottle at 2:57am, 3 minutes before the end of the event so I thought to myself this must be an omen. So I popped one of the 16 boxes I still had remaining and to my surprise, no warhead...another unit. Then another unit when I woke up and opened the one box they allow to open after the event ends.

I wont sit here and whine about conspiracies like so many others, Ill just be thankful for the prizes Ive gathered during the events spending exactly 0.00 dollars on gold.

As long as I can get boxes and they open with frequency, then Im willing to overlook the obvious way in which the events are insidiously programmed .

What is not logical is the fact the warheads come fast and furious until you get 8 or 9...then seemingly become extinct.

If it were truly random (making the event actually on the level) this paradigm wouldnt exist.

My point exactly, it's rigged. 54 attempts after finding the 8th warhead with no luck. Before that 5 was my longest dry spell. Same as the last event. I am through with the events and don't even feel like looking at the game now. I don't like teasers - no matter who is doing them or what the result is.

I hv to agree with u on this. I think they need to improve the odds. Every single event, people r getting depressed n angry. They felt cheated by funzio. It will serve them better if they increase the chance lil bit higher. I seriously dont understand the logic why they made it soooo damn hard tht it is almost impposible fr certain player to get it.

Take u fr example cope..Assuming all 390 golds was spent on open n no reset, u hv an average of 18 cash attempt per day. I'm sure many others hv the same or higher average thn tht. 18 attempts a day is actlly vry high (6 hrs sleep) n if u still cant get all 10 with tht amount of efforts then something is wrong somewhere.

I understand tht this is a chance event n i accept tht u got to hv luck on ur side to get all 10 (gold or no gold doesnt matter). But why does the odds hv to be extremely low??? Stingy much???

Take u fr example cope..Assuming all 390 golds was spent on open n no reset, u hv an average of 18 cash attempt per day. I'm sure many others hv the same or higher average thn tht. 18 attempts a day is actlly vry high (6 hrs sleep) n if u still cant get all 10 with tht amount of efforts then something is wrong somewhere.

I understand tht this is a chance event n i accept tht u got to hv luck on ur side to get all 10 (gold or no gold doesnt matter). But why does the odds hv to be extremely low??? Stingy much???

Good closing questions.

Agreed! To me its weird that they don't disclose the odds of getting every box, like 1 box 50%, 2 40% etc.. There wouldn't any harm doing that if this lockbox-events really is random and not something else.. If you pay real money you really should get to know how big of chance there is you can win something.

I'm not gonna waste anyone's time with whining... but...

My free LLP got all 10 with 2 days to spare and only opened about 20 boxes total.

My gold HLP got stuck on 9 and blew a ridiculous amount of gold and opened well over 100 boxes yesterday alone. Also experienced some glitches where gold opens didn't open the box, and boxes disappeared randomly. (And I haven't lost a fight or been raided in weeks.)

Something is horribly wrong with this.

Wow. That suggest that the odds are solely on the event day and not diminishing by nuke count per individual player, as has been suggest. The strategy would be to spend heavy the first two days on resets and lock up the prize early. Counter intuitive to do with days remaining.

Akward moment...I've just realised tht my math is incorrect when calculating Copen's average. Lol. Not going to bother editing it tho.

Still despite my jersey shore moment, the point has been made.

Last two opens with bare hands have netted me a riot buster, and 500 valor. Damn, I really don't care that I've missed the ninth item twice in a row now!

Hello my forum peeps.

So I'm typing this up from my phone so please excuse any typos from my fat thumbs. I can't wait to go back and read some of the comments that everyone has made since the event ended. I have so many thoughts and emotions on this but I can't collect them all into any kind of clear and concise format. Bottom line is this, im really frustrated. And I'm not sure who to be upset with, funzio for making the odds nearly impossible to reach the final goals or me for falling for it each and every time.

I put so much damn time and effort into this event this time. I hit the boxes just about every hour regardless of what I was doing. I made significantly more attemps in this event than probably the three previous events combined. And yet, I still ended up with 8 nukes, about a dozen useless loot items some money maybe a half a million and maybe 900 valor. None of those prizes was worth me leveling up 6 times, losing sleep, stressing out, cussin out my innocent phone because it wont give me a god damn nuke. My wife thinks I'm absolutely insane because my alarm on my phone litter ally goes off every damn hour. I even got closer than I ever thought I would be to buy gold and then thankfully I read posts about people using thousands of good bars to open the crates and they still weren't at 10 and I was like, what's the damn point then. If they aren't getting them then I'm certainly not wasting my money on gold.

I don't know, I'm just at a loss that this is 4 straight events that I've been unable to attain the top prize and that just seems rediculous to me. People like me who are avid players, should have a good chance of getting to 10 nukes or plane parts or whatever part it will be next, if for no other reason than I play this game all damn day long. I'm always on this thing. Updating building, expanding, buying units, collecting money, doing missions, raiding allies, PARTICIPATING in stupid events and I am now sick and tired of the BS.

I am now reverting back to my previous strategy. Camp, level slow, build economy and celebrate those goals and milestones (like the fact I broke $300K hr income and built my first Nano) and ignore all future events and promotions from funzio. I was really close to investing in gold for the event, the crates and to add some money buildings to my bases in support of the game. But now, I'd rather waste my money on just about anything else, but tonight the money I was going to spend on good, is going to be spent on a fresh new bottle of Jack Daniels.

Congrats to everyone who succeeded in this event and good luck to those participating in upcoming events, I for one, won't be joining you.

Oh and a very special thank you to my girl Kitty for your wonderful and amazing gift on my birthday. I didn't get the chance to respond but I thought it was AWESOME that you sent me two nukes for my birthday haha
