Have they buffed this boss compared to the last one?

Last event I was L25 with 7k attack and got through 18 with no issues at all, could have possible got 19 or even 20 without gems.
This time round thought I would buff my stats to see if I could get to 30 or so, I brought items/units which got my attack up to 11k. In the process it passed some attack and defence goals goals which caused me to level to 26 and now doing these bosses at this rate looks like I will be struggling by the time I get to about 10 and doesn’t look good for passing 12.

So a 37% increase in attack and a 4% increase in level has meant a reduction in 37% reduction in bosses completed.

So has
1/ This round of event been majorly buffed
2/ Is 25 a magic number and the bosses increase in hp every so many levels and I should have stayed at 25
3/ I got screwed for some other reason.

On the positive it means I will continue to be a free player as if I had of got to 30 or so I would have definitely used gems to get to 40 but at 12 I wouldn’t even consider it.

I'm actually finding it easier to progress this time around. Last time I ended at the 13th boss, but this time I should be able to hit the 14th (maybe even the 15th boss).
It may be that you crossed one of the thresholds which segment the players? See the other Black Knight thread and the helpful explanation by Hello Kitty (always a good source of info).
Hope this helps. Most importantly ... have fun!

Update: Ended on 14th Boss.

Are you being offered better units than last time? I suspect you crossed a level threshold.

I improved by 1 boss this time around. I can finish 10 boss

All related probably to the fact you're level has increased. It gets more difficult to kill the boss at higher user levels as they 'assume' you have a certain att value at each level. Probably you got now less att compared to what they want you to have.

If that's not the case, then it can be related to the fact that you don't have enough allies compared to what they expect for that level.

In short... it seems the higher you go in lvl, the more difficult it gets to kill the boss a lot of times.

For your situation.. you're screwed for the rest of your game unless you increase your Attack value *3 etc...

L25 must be a threshold then, since the diffrence from last time around is huge just took 7 attacks to kill number 8 which I one shot in the last event

I am having a huge difference between lvl 74 and 77. I wonder if 75 is another threshold. I got to 14 last event and can barely get past 8 this time.

My best analysis from people's experience is the boss increases at lvl 25, 50, and 80. Those lvls seems to be where the next tier begins (plus or minus 1 lvl). So you'll still have time to improve for the next boss events until you hit ~lvl 50.

If you're even remotely correct about this, I better get a move on.

Last boss event I made it to 19 with free and gold hits. This time to 20. But I'm at level 65 now, about to pop 66.

I probably should be at 45k attack for the next one.

But to the point of the thread, IMO I'd have to say no. They didn't make the bosses harder for this event than last.

I started the event at level 37 with 45 allies and 4500 attack. On the first day of event I started adding allies and upgrading my siege workshop to level 8 to build trebuchets (27/12). I bought a 150 of them or so and with my additional allies (maxed out at 185) I am able to get boss 17 I think. If cash flow wasn't a problem I could go much higher because my density is so poor with 555 units going into battle Each additional treb I buy adds 20+ to my attack and I am not even fielding a full armory and weapons for this high an ally count. Hopefully I can add 20-40 more trebs and get both 17 and 18 down. Then start buying hps

Same situation for me a leveled passed 75 and went from boss 16 last time to boss 8 this time. :(

I will try buying basilisks, upgrading and adding allies but doubt I'll make it any further. Might just stay put.

All 8 commons :(

Same - all 8 commons as well. Trying one last Boss level, then I am done:p

I believe that the level change driving the rewards and difficulty of the boss is 75 not 80. I saw someone (lvl 76) with a Castle Airship instead of the Palace Airship that I would receive at level 77. It had lower stats than the Palace Airship. I am guessing they received it at lvl 74 or 75and then leveled up. This would explain why I suddenly had much more trouble on this Boss Event than the last one. It may have been lvl 80 on the last event but it appears as though they changed the breakpoint to 75.
