Doing current event using game cash option.

Should I use gold to get to 20 or carry on opening using cash option.

Use the in game cash option until you have an hour left then open reset to get the last necklace

One away, wow think I would. Good luck.

Overtime cash option

11-28-2012, 07:30 AM

Now, that's a true consensual argument.

I'm thinking do 2 on cash see if I get any open that leave me 3 hours of gold plus a few resets to see if lucks on my side.

I could just do what marebear said and cash it till the last hour.

So near, yet so far....

Don't do it man! It's a trap. You'll end up with 0 gold, no deadly compact and a whole lot of resentment. I've been there before, and what I've spent sitting at 19 trying to get to 20, I could have bought a couple of crates. Only time I've got 20 was all cash only for the bulletproof jacket.

I think they have an algorithm for those who have occasioanlly purchased gold (I got a box from ft. knox a few months back) that lets them get really close to top tier prizes in the hopes of having them shell out 20-50 bucks again.

Good stats on the weapon for 15 gold,if you get it in 1 shot. Whats it really worth to Gree around 300? Its got better stats then the Night Vision MAR @300 gold but worse then Spec Ops Assault Rifle @ 525 gold. For what its worth I think I would spend some gold to get it

11-28-2012, 07:46 AM

I see your reasoning.

In my past only once I got got 19 before with 1h 20min, till end.
Gambled on 2 resets & 3 100% opens & got the sanguine launcher including the other 3 lesser items for 75 gold in total and all weapons were of use to me.

The only thing was I promised myself not to use gold on the event and see if I could get 20, now I'm having second thoughts because time is ticking.


If I hold tight I may open it without gold but impatience is a weakness of man.

Wait? Yes I would wait, and try for free with in game cash. Theres still 4 hrs, but I would spend the gold in the last hour or so. Either way you go good luck

11-28-2012, 07:57 AM
Gold opens from here on out.
If you wait till the last hour you will also be doing resets which will cost you.

Nice, Congrats

11-28-2012, 08:03 AM
As I said, don't bother wasting gold.

11-28-2012, 08:26 AM
Nice. Congrats man!. I'm having the same debate now sitting at 18...

11-28-2012, 08:48 AM
Congratulations Fig. I have been very unfortunate in this event when compared to previous, got to number 10 two hours ago whereas I would usually be at 15/16 by now with all cash opens. Maybe it's Gree punishing me for getting elbow deep in O/T after the invasion event lol...

11-28-2012, 08:56 AM



If I had spent gold it wouldn't of been so bad as all but 1 box came to my possession because I was participating in the pvp event.
Plus after that 19 boxes did open free before I contemplated using gold so to spend a little on a last box if successful would've outweigh the spend.

That the rule of any gamble, you're never guaranteed to win?


Wait till you get 19 before using gold.
Good luck.

11-28-2012, 09:03 AM

LOL, sometimes me too I feel gree goes on some undercover punishment.

The invasion event was a flop, they should reward you for playing it & you showing dedication by going overtime.
I didn't touch that event, the first thug I got it gave me a henchman, that was enough for me to not go any further.

Nice one fig.

I don't normally get much beyond 5 in these events, but amazed myself by hitting 15 on morph and 20 on SV this time. Did need to use a bit of gold for the last couple of pearls on each

11-28-2012, 09:21 AM
Congrats. I only got 2 pearl necklaces (lmao). I have never received so many BLNT's.

11-28-2012, 09:31 AM
Thanks Marebear.

@Sister M.

I must admit gree done 3 decent events in a row (epic boss, pvp & top 250)

With the invasion event and the top 250 event before, I thought things were going to get worst.

I'll make a poll once the events over and collect the results from other forum users on how they fared on this event.

Yeah! That is great.

Slightly off topic, further to my previous post bemoaning my poor fortune in this event - it seems that it has been counterbalanced by the current Modern War event - I've just received my first ever final item for MW, with 21+ hours to go. Bonus!! As a late starting low(ish) level camper/crawler with poor stats over there, I can deal with a bit of CC misfortune if it tips the balance the other way :) ... Moral of the post? Easy come, easy go... What goes around comes around etc...

Edit - yes, I have been drinking...

Quick question. Why do you have to use gold to reset timer? Wouldn't the event keep going on as long as you don't leave CC? I can never think of a reason you rush to get 20th before event ends if you already had 19 and have 5 hours to go. I actually got my 19th just now after it ends and I'm still pursuing my 20th. Thanks for all the tips you guys posted!
