At least its a collect 10 event and not an auction event... Maybe they will boost the stats hopefully because the current stats are garbage... Not sure if it's worth coming out of camping for 20% more from raids, especially if the boost won't even work. If I can find some high level manors then maybe it would be worth it... But that's about it.

Congrats Zolt

I will not use GEMS, the units are crappy and the bonus not really useful for me

at least is great to see the 10 crate events back

good luck to all

Yes, the good old McDoc method. Always works.
For those who don't play MW, the McDoc method involves using energy refils on missions (beating monsters on the maps) to find boxes and using gem opens and gem timer resets as soon as you get the event. It is the easiest way to get the 10th item, but DOES NOT GAURANTEE you will get it.

The nr. 7 item should at least have 100A/D stats, number 9 should have >150A/D stats, and the top item should have >400A/D stats to make it worthwhile.

For 3-9: you can buy better units for 2000 gold!

Gree, come on, make this more attractive please.

Of course it is no success guaranteed, but if you want the 10th with minumum opens it gives you the best chance using timer resets.

Drop rate is dependent on energy required for monster. So for low level maps, that's probably about right.

14 * 40 (20 gems to open, 20 gems to reset) = 560 gems to open 14 boxes

Plus gems for energy refils. My guess is around 700 tops. Not too bad

I got a unit with 50% more from raids plus the 20% but Im not asking it to be 70%.

OK so my 50% from raids on a L2 Lender first attack gives me $900 gold.

With the 20% apply on a L2 Lender it now gives me $1020 gold.

So unit works.

Because I was so worried about wasting Energy during the Time Quest; I resorted to PvP at the start of a new Quest mission to see if I could get them from other players. But, yeah...it was no easy chore to come up with a few. However, a lot of the bosses started dropping them and now I'm sitting with 20 of 'em waiting to be opened. :)

Around the beginning of time.

The boss units have always been this way, as a sort of compensation for how much harder it was to get them at higher levels.

Though, by that logic, this LTQ should have better units at the lowest levels... Grrrrr. Still mad about unlisted level requirements to finish.

Don't feel bad. Most everyone has been bitten this way at one time or another. Mine was the auction event where I got to learn what 'diminishing chance to get item' really means when applied to $$.

Allow me to elucidate what I mean with regards to collect 10 type events.

I've heard it stated here that the last box has a 2% chance (0.02) of opening into an item. I'm going to assume this is true for this example.

So, with a 2% chance, you have a 98% chance of not getting the item.
Warning : math ahead. You've been warned.

Probability of not getting item after x number of attempts P = 50% (for example)
x = unknown number of attempts that we are trying to solve for.

(1-.02)^x = 0.50
ln (.98)^x = ln(0.50)
x * ln(0.98) = ln(0.50)
x = ln(0.5) / ln(0.98)
x ~= 34.30
>> Translation for the mathematically challenged >> If 10 people each opened 35 boxes while already at 9 opens, chances are good that only 5 of them would walk away with the item.

Now, lets assume that one of them spent some money and bought some gems. He still has the same chances to open. Lets say he's parked on 35 boxes. It would take him 1400 gems to open them all, back to back. That's almost a vault of gems. AND HE STILL HAS THE SAME 50% SHOT AT THE ITEM!

Note how I always spoke in probabilities. You might get lucky, or you might not. YMMV.

I didn't. Just a guess. A hunch. :) And, I didn't mean by just hitting the next level. There are level brackets, no? 0-50, 51-100, 101-151, etc. Maybe I'm just confused.

It seems like the logical assumption is that he's going to earn a lesser stat item for the fact that he's a lower level player. So...if he levels up, his unit (Knight) will stay lower than the (Champion)? Or...I'm way off.

I know the boss event bracket system. I was one of the contributors of the bosses health data sheet.

Your units will never change by your leveling. They'll stay in your inventory. No name change, no stats change.

I opened fewer than 20 boxes from the start of the event because I got quite a few from the limited time event and just now got the Templar Knight.

I hear ya. It still all depends on luck then, just like the usual. It sucks, I know. Just now I thought they kinda nerf the chance so that more ppl will win since the prizes arent so great anyway. Guess they arent that generous.

You had it real tough, but hey, gotta do something with that 70 boxes right? Might as well go all the way. Who knows? But I'd just go with the middle options and not use gems if I was you.

The collect 10 event is different from the auction style event. In here, we dont compete with the others to get the top positions. All we need is to get 10 items and we get the grand prize with the bonus. Usually, however, getting the 10th in this kind of event is much much harder than getting 10 in the auction event. Some say the chance is less than 2% of your successful opens.

Mine was called the Molten Hydra. I think I wasnt even level 21 when that happened. Some ppl in the higher levels got Inferno Hydra. Just check your inventory whether you got the intermediate prizes, something like Whip Master (Inf), Undead Noble (Mag), Heavenly Steward and Abyss Warrior (Inf). Those were the ones from my bracket but the names should be more or less the same. If you have those, then you probably won the Hydra back then. If you don't, well you're a helluva lucky guy to get a glitch :D I'd keep it to myself so the devs won't find out their mistake.

Btw congrats Brodawg and Dudeman and everyone else who won

dudeman
12-02-2012, 02:06 PM
I don't think you can get a collect 10 end prize by glitch. The hydra I have is called scarred hydra. I just don't know if that came from a collect 10 or some other event, like a 20 or 30 wins prize from a boss.

I almost never do any attacking or raiding, so the bonus from this one is pretty useless. I just wanted an indestructible with 200+/100+ stats.

If anyone is curious, every single event box i acquired came from the harpies on the highland pass map, and I never had more than 7 on hand. Often I had none as they wouldn't drop at all sometimes.

Dude, the Scarred Hydra is from the boss event (defeat 15 I think). The Hydra from the collect 10 is red colored. It's completely different.

The collect 10 event is different from the auction style event. In here, we dont compete with the others to get the top positions. All we need is to get 10 items and we get the grand prize with the bonus. Usually, however, getting the 10th in this kind of event is much much harder than getting 10 in the auction event. Some say the chance is less than 2% of your successful opens.

Just seems strange that I can collect 7/10 in one day and now, in 4 energy bars and 3 stamina bars I can't even find a box to open. Almost like Gree put the brakes on cause I don't use gems. 8(

Greybeard - Not sure what level you are, etc. But if you head back to say Dwarven Mine and start clearing house of the Larvae, Beetles, etc. you should be able to snag a few boxes.

12-02-2012, 06:27 PM
Also, just got 10th power gauntlet and the Templar whatever. No gems used, suck on that Gree!


Well, I will just say that IMHO this 10 box event is a lot nicer than the auction style box events. Also, if players are having only moderate difficulty with getting to 10 gauntlets on gold opens (I got 7 pretty fast, then got stuck for a whole day before managing to get to 9, where I am now), then let's be thankful.

I really don't see any need to "poke" at GREE about this if they have been nice enough to allow an event which is do-able without massive reliance on gems. If they do something wrong, we blame them. If they do something nice, we make fun of them?? Doesn't seem the right approach ...

Finally, we really should acknowledge that for all the bugs, etc, GREE has been trying to roll out new events.

dudeman
12-02-2012, 07:34 PM
Getting to 10 for free is about as common as winning a top 250 for free. Apparently doable, but not a common occurrence.

And you know nothing of my experiences with Gree, so you've not really got anything to say about my reasons for having a poke. The gif I included immediately following that statement, which you conveniently omitted, was indicative of still having a bit of sense of humor about everything.

I've got 93 boxes but I've already got the 10 open and the Templar.

So, I've kept opening them these last few days and low and behold I've finally found some use for the added exp, gold and honor hahahaha. Wish you could give your boxes away though...seems a waste. But, I need to level up to 62, so I ain't complaining.

I have just gotten the 10th Power Gauntlet and got the Templar Guardian, who is a big boost to my army. This is only my fourth event since I started playing, including this one I have competed in two box open the box events, one epic enemy event, and the other evades me at the moment. I want to thank GREE because these type of event and the units that I get from them help my army big time. Now what should I do with the remaining 15 boxes that I have?

O.k ...well done to all who got the 2 DIFFERENT TYPES i notice that there is a major difference between the KNIGHT and CHAMPION must be a level thingy... anyways i kept opening my left over boxes and yeilded some major MONEY and HERO Coin , definetly worth opening the remaining boxes i used gold 2250 and returned 15,000 my HERO return was 1,000and 750 points so upped the ante on some CANNONS not a bad investment for me ?!
I hope other are doing the same it could yeild some bonus Monies/Hero points

Vile Lynn
12-04-2012, 12:21 AM
Yeah, after 10, definitely keep opening boxes until the end of the event.

It is a level thing... Not exactly sure where the split is, might be 50... If it is: under 50 gets the Knight, over gets the Champion. Same w/ Boss Events, lower levels get lower stat units.

Of course it is no success guaranteed, but if you want the 10th with minumum opens it gives you the best chance using timer resets.

Overall, how many gems did you use?

I was quite stunned this morning when I opened my 10th gauntlet. I was sitting in a bagel shop enjoying my garlic bagel with cream cheese and almost said outlet to nobody in particular, "Look - I won! I never win anything (in box events)!" I stared and stared at the screen almost not believing it. I didn't stay up 24 hours straight for days, I didn't use gems. I just ended up with a whole bunch of bejeweled boxes from doing the timed quest and opened them using the "middle" option.

So of course, I had to go try it out immediately to see if the 20% boost really worked. And of course, I can't find anything worth raiding for 15 minutes straight. Lots of uncollected castles finally, but nothing worth risking any dragons over. And then finally, one lone little level 1 manor shows up with the red line of happiness over it, and lo and behold, 2,700 gold on my first hit. *happy dance*

It seems Gree was in a holiday mood with these two events - both top prizes were actually obtainable by free players, given enough time and not completely unreasonable effort. AND I had a lot of fun with the timed quest - for once, I'm singing some praises for this game and company.

I was quite stunned this morning when I opened my 10th gauntlet.

I didn't think I was going to get it, either. I had been sitting on #7 for a day and a half. Finally got my 8th one this morning followed by a string of Sorry!s and then I got 9 and 10 back to back. I found some high level silos to raid, though.

Between this boxed event and the timed quest I have acquired a new #1 unit, and three of my top six spots are all held by newcomers. Of course, I'm talking about attackwise, not defensively.

5 straight 20 gem uses to get last 3 for main reward and 5 straight BS results. 100% should mean 100% for the item you need not some lame ass honor points or gold.

Noone forced you to use Gems. 100% open means 100% open.

I can get 200 Gems easy from Tapjoy thus I pay nothing for 10 boxes. Too easy actually, is that also unfair? But, as long as we both can get 10 boxes, who cares? Right? I mean we both spent Gems and got the prize.

Jolt

If I used Gems once for any box event and did not get the intended item; I would have stopped right there and gone Gold (middle) option.

Where did you pick up the majority of your boxes? Bosses, lower level maps, PvE...?

I currently have 80 seemingly useless boxes. I got them from questing, raiding, and attacking. None from lower level maps.

Bet they have a special little tweak in their algorithm that makes it more difficult to get the Glove with each box that opens.

I've actually pondered this for some time. As a heavily "free" player in every prior Box Event I can tell you that from the get go it's easy to snag that first (5) or second (10) unit. It's frustrating to start seeing the Gem spenders come in. Why? Like you mentioned, there has to be something that limits opens. If I get within 3 opens of the board; it slows down my "congratulations" screen until the Gem spenders have moved up the tier. Then I get rewarded again. It's a sly move but hey, I understand the message.

Who would want a player that has full vault and 50+ boxes from great enemies to just sit every hour and open those boxes with a great shot at achieving what players who spend $100's get? It's not business smart.

That's very unfortunate. I am a non-gem player and I won the #10 unit easily 3 days ago, only using the gold open option. Now I'm using the rusty knife to see what else I can win at no cost to me. This event was a great opportunity for everyone.

This is most assuredly the case, ALTHOUGH it used to be much, much worse. The odds of getting box #10 were somewhere around 1%, so you could open boxes 24/7 for 3 days and not at all be guaranteed of getting the last box. In this event, it did seem to get slightly harder as the boxes went up, but it was definitely way way easier than this event has even been in the past.
