Noticed an annoying thing with the timer on this event, seems to have started yesterday and confirmed it today.

Yesterday I did my usual thing of wait till the health screen "soon" came up, exited out of that and went back to the counter, waited for around 90 seconds and then activated the attack screen. Only got a single attack and saw 26 instead of 25 as the health loss. The character falling down sequence did not initiate, just dumped straight back to the "more health required" screen.

I also thought that I had seen a figure slightly higher than 2 hours when I first went into the attack screen right after the boss initiated so this morning I did a check.

1. Straight after the boss initiated I went to the "Beat the Elite" screen in my goals list (I always cancel out of the splash screen to prevent losing the cash from the attack that initiated the event), the timer indicated 2 hours and 28 seconds.

2. After the first set of five attacks the health screen appeared but the counter appeared frozen, countdown started after about a thirty second delay.

3. After the required health regeneration time I waited an additional five minutes before initiating the attack screen.

4. The first attack again took 26 points instead of 25. The second attack took 3 points when it should have been four.

Been noticing this as well on the current boss event.

Just have to adjust timers when it takes 26 health instead of 25

This has been frustrating since 3 hits wait a minute strategy seems to get me killed 2/5th of the time on the 4th hit. Even using a timer on a separate device after dying to ensure the exact 25 HP plus one minute had gone by didn't help.

I noticed 24/26 health being taken away in previous boss events, but it seemed to be a display glitch rather than an actual problem affecting gameplay. This new issue prevents people from using the standard strategy. My guess is Gree designed it to be more random than 25HP every time...simce it will coax people use more gold as you're likely to not be able to get your 13 free hits in anymore.

I see the bar go up for the 2 hits and it only gave me 1 hit , I thought it just glitched out on me as it has only happened the 1 time so far.

Yes, noticed the same thing on current boss. Was the last of the first set of five. It "caught up" with the next shot thankfully.

Nasty play by Gree with the health.

Current boss hits have cost me
26/26/26/25/25/26/26/25/25/26/26

Went and checked their in game FAQ as I was sure that it had been stated somewhere that it was 25 health each hit. That section no longer exists as has been replaced with the faction information.

Guess it is now a case of player beware....Need to watch every health hit now....

Damn I knew something funky started yesterday. I thought I was losing my mind but 4 hits is all I get with full health. I can wait 1-3 minutes and 4 is all I get. With 17 straight commons I am not going gold at all on this one.

My first 20 bosses threw a couple 26 hits at me but it was ok... My most recent boss, number 32, I saw some very similar numbers to what q raider posted. Almost like 26 is the new normal. Very lame. Sent a ticket.

Yeah--I've been slapped with the "bonus" time, too. How nice of Gree.

There's an added bug that has hit me several times today, too, to make it worse, starting on boss 21. Sometimes when I go for a hit that will leave me with no health, the boss will take no damage but I will lose my remaining health. Then I get dumped back to the timer screen and the timer will be one minute less than the standard time. I had this bug happen in KA during the last boss event a couple of times, and Gree acknowledged that it was a known issue (and refunded me some gems I had lost as a result of the bug), but now in MW I've had it happen multiple times in three bosses in a row. This is ridiculous. No way I'm going to spend gold trying to go for the boss prize, even though that had been my plan until I wasted all of today trying to get past boss 22.

To me it costs randomly health (24,25 or 26) per attack. I also have strange glitch that I have beaten the Warlord 24 times (and got 24 prizes as well naturally), but the mission screen tells that Ive defeated him only 22 times. Strange..

This has happened to a number of others before. If you plan on going all the way through 35 you will not get the elite prize in your inventory right away because of the goals screen, initiate the Boss again and take a screenshot showing you are on Boss #36. Send in a ticket with that screenshot and support will award you the unit and place it into inventory.

Or if you are strong enough like Zoltarov is (he regularly beats more bosses than required), you can beat the 2 additional bosses so your goal screen will show show you beating 35, and the unit will be placed directly into inventory as normal.

Mine is doing the same! It's a real pain especially when I need to time everything correctly so I don't need to use as much gold.

I got another glitch today, at boss 30 I lost one attack money. It's showed I had one more hit and after the attack the game got the money but no attack for the boss..... Has anyone experienced the same? :-/

Read my post at the beginning of this page. I have experienced this bug too.

I was able to catch what might be the underlying issue. As you can see from this series of photos, the timer appears to freeze for a certain period of time, randomly. I noticed this specific freeze lasted about 30 seconds.

Ticket #314634 submitted to help them figure out what's broken. I think it may have to do with the way the faction Health Regen bonuses are working.

I've had a boss take 27 damage from me. I have also had a boss that gave me 2:00:16 before he escaped at the beginning of the boss being triggered.
