I have to say a little disappointed it wasn't the Epic Boss event but we got 4 new maps so everything is good

My target will be the 25 Helms of Darkness unit I suppose.

Off to a bad start though.

I wonder if they have altered the drop rates for the Helms as they have now introduced the 25 Helm prize?

No worries~ I was also alerted to the event via a post on my wall from Tiki in the first place.

Thanks, I couldn't see the top prize. Just started up for me. 4 days 4 hours left. Bummer. I'm in the top 50 with one box. Another busy weekend, may be lucky to get to 10 again.

How many people will want 70% more honor points as an ultimate prize? 230 helms might take this prize.

Funzio doesn't stack percentages 1 on top of the other so it wouldn't be 70% more

Funzio doesn't stack percentages 1 on top of the other so it wouldn't be 70% more it would have to be you will get the top 50 and top prize or why spend that much?

Guess best way to find out is find wildstallions in the game and ask him if his opponents bring 7 less allies to battle now

That's different you're not putting percentages together.

You need to be above level 10. Then just kill monsters and they will drop occasionally. It seems that the more xp a monster is worth, the greater the odds of a box dropping.

They are listening to feedback - the feedback of 50 or so people spending hundreds of dollars to win the top units in the event. While that continutes, so do these events.

Well not off to a good start 3 sorries in a row, so far 5 boxes found have been from the new map Mount Inferno's Cauldron.

Last event I only got to 15 as a free player 25 helms seems so far off......................

Thank you. I've gotten two boxes using that method, zero fighting battles. Tried to open first box and was denied (I don't have any gems), what are chances I can find and open 20 boxes before deadline?

@Arwin Stark: I know how you feel. But I am at 0 out of 4 tries so far so that's 10k for 4 sorry(s). I will just keep trying, might have to adjust my expectations though.

@Timbathia: It's disappointing that they have continued with these auction style events but these back to back to back to back auction events (did I miss any?) might already have been planned in advance. It's kinda rough on the gem spenders but for us it's just free indestructible units for gold.

I am still looking forward to the epic boss event that should come next week and new content is always good.
Dagon's Delta and Mount Inferno's Cauldron are already two maps that I like.

07-19-2012, 09:14 PM
2 for 3. It's totally random, been more like 1 for 8 last few events. Anyone notice how crappy the gold is per monster kill in the last new map? It's supposed to be harder then Dawrven mine yet each kill is $1k less.....

Takes a while to understand but once you play it (I think), you will get the hang of it. I don't play CC or MW but I can roughly understand what goes on. If you have any questions, you can pm me.

@marebear: Eh. 240 gems gets u 12 opens no?

Hmmm, gone through 3 full bars of energy killing monsters in several of the middle maps and not one box has dropped for me yet. Strange because for all the other events they drop more often than weapons or armor. I have terrible luck with the gold option so I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll make it to 5 for this event.

6 tries and 4 helmets, my aim is to get at least the same as last event, which was 20, but if I get 25 would be great as a free player.

Too early, 5am I think. I ended on 9 last event and 17 on CC opening the same number of boxes. Yeah, just one unit for 5 days or so of hourly open attempts kinda sucked!

Maybe to reduce frustration they should always allow the boxes to open, but using a gem or gold increases the likelihood of it being an egg, gem, helm ...

I agree. CCM has stated in an earlier post that the drop rate increased. But that does not do you any good if you cant open the box. . .unless of course you use gems to open the box

07-20-2012, 04:40 AM
Well, at the end of the day and on the assumption that Wildstallion is not having any compulsion disorders, then I think we all wish we had that kind of spare cash to throw at games .... I'm not saying I would do that even if I had the moolah, but it's for him/her to decide.

I've been playing since the event started on and off to let energy bar refill and still haven't gotten a single box to drop. I've restarted my device several times, the event has been showing up fine, just no boxes at all and I've killed 3 or 4 dozen monsters on Blisterfoot Bog and several other maps. I've sent a ticket into support, but I'm ticked off since I doubt I'll even get the 5 gem unit now (I have terrible luck with the gold option).

Just when I thought these events couldn't frustrate me any more than they were!

Agreed. It should also be pointed out that he can't be that much of an idiot if he has enough extra cash to spend in the amounts he must be spending, every week. He or she is probably doing pretty well for themselves.

I'd love to see their KA profile and the unit collection they have at this point.

I'm not really sure why they would increase the drop rate, I already had 70 or so boxes left to open when the old events ended. Now will I have 90? What's the point unless you want to play ot for three weeks and get them all opened,but then you'd miss the next event. Lol

As far as the wild stallion talk, I could care less one way or the other what he/ she does,doesn't effect me in the least

I think it was more like an extra two days addedd. My event started showing 4days & 4 hours - now x number of hours later, it is showing 5 days 11 hours remaining.

There may be hope for some free players to get 25 helms and get the bottom 5 prizes!

With the current success rate of opeing boxes and getting helm I doubt that many (any) free player will get to 25. Adding another day or two also ensures that many free players who are stuck at 1 or 2 helms below their desired unit have more time to finally push the buy button.

Having a longer event now almost certainly means that no free player will get into the top 250.

I really don't care about the top 250, top 50, or even top 1 unit. Great stats, of course, but other than that, nothing that really intrigues me. The 20 and 25 helms units look cool though.

I need to agree with you that I learned to be consistent when we talk about events. I'm stuck on 7 for 4 hours. I hope that I get 8 today. However, I need to agree that I saw 2 extra days being added. Is it because they didn't see the players spend as much as usual? Will this afect the opening for free players? We will see what happens.

Getting stuck for 4 hours seems to be the exception rather than the rule. I have seen a lot of sorry(s) today and if this happens on day one where boxes are easiest to open, then we might all be in for a rough time.
Even with 2 days added on, the progressive difficulty of getting a helm does seem daunting for our aim of getting to 25 helms for the 5th unit.

A lot can happen in 5 days...I'm still on the fence with buying this one or not (top 250). I like the stats, but no boost doesn't seem worth it and crates are looking kind of good. Did you ever enter your equipment in the spreadsheet?

Nope I haven't gotten around to adding in the equipment as I worried about having to update them due to the random nature of the way the equipment are arranged in KA.

Was hoping to see some new loot in the new maps but so far besides a cool looking first map, cool third map, a very awesome looking secret boss in Mount Inferno's Cauldron, you would prefer going back to the 4 maps prior instead..

I might have to head back to dwarven mine to continue farming since the gold output is higher and help pay for the 2.5k tax per hour I have now.

@HK: You have done all the prior maps to level 5? or did you mean you have just finished their associated quests? I am planning to go back to Dwarven Mine to farm right after I finished all the quests in Mount Inferno's Cauldron till they fixed the drop/gold rate.

@Guido69: My only advice is to keep at it. I started off the event 0 out of 6 or 7 and my success rate is just marginally better than yours.

@HK: You have done all the prior maps to level 5? or did you mean you have just finished their associated quests? I am planning to go back to Dwarven Mine to farm right after I finished all the quests in Mount Inferno's Cauldron till they fixed the drop/gold rate.

@Guido69: My only advice is to keep at it. I started off the event 0 out of 6 or 7 and my success rate is just marginally better than yours.Lol Hob. I think I may be a bit clueless on the map lingo. I've existed in the Funzio world doing mostly PvP. I've done all the scheduled map quests through Dragon's Roost (25 maps including Dragon's) after that there are only 9 maps left (34 maps total). I've mastered only the 1st map to level 5, the next six to level 4 - was mostly interested in the skill point. Want to match up my defense now to attack (attack is at 112 with the bonus from egg event). Make sense?

I'm on 7 helms all middle option with 4 days to go. After some unexpected leveling going for completing the new map quests and sitting on round 156 for pvp quests I find it annoying that the middle option continues to rise in gold cost as you level.

15-20 sucked! That took probably 20 opens.
20-25 is better. I've gotten 3 out of the last 5 to be at 24 right now.

It fluctuates... Hit a dry spell then get a couple in a row. <shrug>

It doesn't take much energy/xp to get boxes. I've got like 70 of the damn boxes right now and I wish I had less, almost every damn monster is dropping them.. much more so than equipment chests that I want! I'd just get enough boxes so you can open 1 an hour until the event ends and see what happens.

Geesh. Last event I had about 140 boxes still left with 62 bars collected. I think a high drop rate increases the amount needed for top units, thus requiring ppl to spend more gems if they want to Place.

Carry on fighting, people. I need to average around a Helm every 7 attempts to make it to 25 from now on.

@Hobtuse - I don't need them to admit anything (not that, I agree, they ever would). Just fix it so that people can end the event happily. If they did mess up or overtighten something, then they should just allow helms galore regardless of option to open until people hit 25 and then slow it down.

Just sharing how bad it has got (for me at least) during this event ... I actually found myself for a short time on the top 250 list. First time that has happened and considering I'm a totally free player .... can imagine how some of the other players are feeling.

Addyman
07-23-2012, 12:46 AM
Up to 12 now, just using middle option. Aiming to get 15 then think I may stop as chances of 20 as a free player are virtually nil I reckon.

I don't care what Gree says about open rates on KA they are still screwy compared to MW.

The MW event has been going on for two days less and I have got 7 items - so three indestructible units. Even if the probabilities were the same, I should have reached the 15 items in KA by this time by using the same middle option, whereas, I have been on 9 now for the last 30 attempts ( so about 36 hrs).

Also, please bring back loot items to break up the monotony of the sorry streaks. If I could suggest, get rid of the 25 and 50 Honor as well and bring in either very low casualty units or weapon and armour loot items.

Either they have made an error with the algorithms or the whole purpose behind setting up KA was as a revenue stream only which means that they will not change it at all. I am not sure which yet but am starting to lean towards the second option.

What is your level in the game? In the info, it says that the ties are determined by level. I highly doubt the game will allow a 20th level player to get the 4th unit very easily. However, I am always 1 gem behind the top 250 so at the end I could by some helms :) I dont complain from the open rate, I got sorry every now and than, mostly helms and some gold or Honor.

This is really sucking for me... Still at 9 helms - whereas I already have eight caches from the MW crate event despite having started opening boxes only later on Sunday (I found out about the event on Saturday night but could not get a single crate for love or money till the next day). Looks like even 15 helms is gonna be out of the question for me. :_(

I have basically quit the event. Still stuck on 10, so going to save the 2000 gold each hour and only use the free option. 5 to go for the next unit is bad odds and the 40000 gold it would end up costing me to keep using the middle option is better spent elsewhere.

I got weak and started using gems again...first open was a helms so guess who's getting sucked back into the rat hole again? 22 helms...trying for 25 and top 250. I got to 20 today and haven't used any gems!

Think I might use a few here in the last 33 hours just to make sure I hit 25 helm for last indestructible unit and maybe top 250. Might as well try since I have been able to stay in the hunt this long without using any lol

Only 17 here. Usually I have a lot better luck on these things. Got she wasn't shining in my direction this time, we're you Miss Lady? Ah well. Was hoping to at least hit 20. From the looks of things, if you hit 26, you'll be in the top 250. But for me, from 15 to 17 in 48 hours isn't too promising.
Good luck to all for the next 30 hours!

I got to 8 helms on Saturday and started thinking I might get past 10 for the first time, maybe even 15. Well, that was the end of my luck. About 70 hours later and I'm still on 8. I have received honor points either once or twice and gold twice. I'm using the gold option every time. This is getting seriously costly. I've gotten sorry, better luck next time way too much.

I used to be a free player, then I took an arrow to the knee.

Congrats! Guess I should start using them to get to 25, because I have only gotten one helm in the past 24 hours which means with just 1 day odd to go, it's kinda futile to get to 25 for me via medium options.

Yup I sent in a ticket.. Hopefully they can respond soon~

stuck at 20 and with one day to go, realistically 25 is impossible for a free player even if i really tried very hard.. want to divert the funds to improve my attack stats for the epic boss quest now~~!

with some luck, some players have already gotten better units in the epic boss quest..

but still, thanks for the event!! can we get back those initial events we had? just get to 10 of whatever instead of these auction style ones?

Good luck people! I have given up, and have been using the trusty rusty knife for multiple sorry(s) already.

But at 20 helms, I think it's still a pretty decent haul without spending gems. Just that I didn't think 5 more helms was possible in a day though at least I gave it a good go.

My guess though is the top 250 prize in the next event will have the boost of regain health 20% faster for bosses. Atleast I hope it's on the top 250 prize and not the top 50

If you want to get more than just the first 2 units - or just 10 helms while playing for 'free'/'free Gold', you'll be very lucky...If you want to get more than that...you need to pull out your credit card and fork over some big bucks!

Well Im a free player. Its because of them that I can play this game for free so I have no complaints.

Think about this. Its a "want" and not a "need". This is a WANT of the guys that buys gems. All people have wants, its just different for people. And Im sure you have a WANT that you dont need but bought it anyway. Its the same as buying gems and spending cash in a game. You dont need it but you want it.
