They are given as an alternate of the shamrock. Basicly you win a shamrock, one of those units named above, or you get the dreaded (just want to throw my Ipad out the window and smash something) sorry better luck next time. That was for those still chasing the bow or the chimera. Some box events give out gold and honor but i dont think that applies here.

I can't find the bauchan raider, destructive cyclops, & restless spirit too. I'll double check my inventory again later & another ticket for Gree if i can't find this unit on the list. Guys try double check your inventory for the past LTQ's cause Gree are having mistakes lately due to some Guild glitch going on probably...

I think this is "Loch Haunter - 152/125".

For information then, "Changeling - 93/125 infantry"

And I also can't find my 2 "Restless Spirit - 68/50" in my inventory. I sent a ticket.

About those missing units, I cannot find the changeling either; and I "opened" quite a few of them. I have not kept track though. But I know that I've opened around 250 to 300 boxes and have 100 shamrocks at present. Anyone else missing other units besides the Restless Spirit?

UPDATE: I refresh frequently & the changeling wasn't there, hence this post. Then, I tried closing all running apps & rebooted my iPad. Now, the changeling IS THERE. Whew! I still do not see the restless sprit, just the restless spectre. I have 30 Loch Haunters, 65 Bauchan raiders and it seemed like I had more of the restless spirits, so we'll see when it's fixed.

Looks like another Chimera event for many people.
Who has missed out on a final unit such as the Fuath Sprite?

The numbers do not add up and GREE is deliberately coding in a block of a remaining unit once again like the Chimera.

This sort of stuff will loose you customers GREE, not gain you more. It has nothing to do with luck as mathematically the numbers or pure luck does not add up.

I know of players who have spend between 8 and 15 mountains of gems and have been missing the final unit since the first 2 days. Do the right thing GREE and honour those players who have paid much for this unit. If you expect people to throw money at you blindly and you make them think its pure luck...you are lying. Do the maths yourself.

Please speak up if you have experienced this...

Based on my experience it is luck, but the average is once in 200 boxes. I got 2 sprites out of probably ~400 opens.

Thanks for your experience sleazius but it's not luck and many of us who have been here for a long time and observed these events this to be the case. It always comes down to the last unit needed and there is a coding block that GREE would use that is triggered once a player sits at 7/8. I myself have experienced it many times as well as countless others. Read up about the Chimera in the forum sleazius.

I personally know what companies would do in a situation where they can make an excuse like luck to make more money. Make the customer feel as though its just pot luck and they will spend a little extra just to get it. That's a business model.

For example, i know many who have received all units except the last one needed in the first day. Then they go the entire event without ever seeing the final unit. That's more than a coincidence...

GREE want you to believe its luck, just as they do with the drop lot events, but its not...don't believe the lie.

This your first top 50 sleazius? Congrats mate and well done ;)

I have raised a suggestion with gree. To start incrementing the % chance after a certain level. The fauth sprite was dropping at close to 1 in 700 drops - ridiculous odds. I get that gree likes people to hang in there but seriously the chances need to start climbing the further through the quest one is. This happens in the boss quests as well. Went all the way to boss 50 without seeing the low chance item.
Obviously a code change that isn't straight forward but hopefully the developers start thinking about.

For me that was the last gem box event, until the drops improve on those rubbish low value units, and the odds start being fair.

Personally I spent 22k gems trying to get the last sprite. There is no way by the sheer number of boxes opened that this can be attributed to "luck". Gree clearly did this to force spenders to keep spending. The number of boxes I opened in no way can attribute the lack of getting the sprite to luck.

I finally got the Sprite to complete my set last night! I didn't think I had much of a chance, given the low drop rate, but apparently got extremely lucky. Unfortunately, I only collected 7 clovers...

GfyPiker
03-13-2013, 09:26 AM
I collected 160 clovers and maybe a million raiders. Finished top 5 and no sprite. Can't see that being attributed to luck. Gree was completely dismissive which is highly annoying considering dollars spent.

03-13-2013, 09:33 AM
I got the top 250 prize, but was2 short (including faith sprite!) on the collect 8. Not sure what I spent, but it was a few 1000's.

I don't think the win/cost ratio is worth it for me and I will be saving my gems for the LTE's and chests in future.

Gambit12
03-13-2013, 09:50 AM
Did you guys know that you can send a ticket to support & asking them that you spent lots of gems on the last collect 10 event or leaderboard? By telling them you want your gems back cause you didn't win the the 10th unit or top 250 unit. They can be able to help you out & return 30% of what you spent the last time you used gems on this event.

I did it too & told them about my bad luck & refund me 30% of gold that i spent in MW on the last or every collect 10 event. The same on Boss event too...

GfyPiker
03-13-2013, 10:12 AM
It makes no sense to piss off their highest paying customers. Great business model. I'm either forced to quit spending, quit game or suck it up amd keep spending on what I know is just throwing away money. Clearly I will never do a box event again. They would make much more money over long haul not pissing off their paying customers to the point that they don't want to spend anymore. It makes no sense.

For a company crushed in the market over this exact practice and potential lawsuits I'm surprised gree continues to piss off their best customers doing this. Note that this article is from last year.

3.5 billion? How many games does GREE make? I thought it was only a few... maybe I should get into the game development scene lol

22k gems?! I feel for you, but honestly if I was Gree simply knowing this tells me that super rare drops are a gold mine. I suspect you are in the bonus club so got some discount, but at retail 22k gems nets them $1,500. If I were them, I'd go ahead and give you the unit after you sent in a ticket and consider the whole thing a wild success.

GfyPiker
03-13-2013, 02:08 PM
As would I. Unfortunately I was blown off when I filed a ticket asking if there was some glitch on the sprite. Basically ensuring I won't spend anymore money on this game. Again the business decision behind this is inexplicable. Any normal business an employee would be fired for pissing off their best customers over for what to them is a simple click of a button. It's not like I was top 250 spender either. It was top 5. The math and statistics just don't add up to not getting the sprite as attributable to "bad luck".

This is so funny... I really don't understand why so many player don't know about random drops. If I buy a lotto ticket its not give me a guarantee that I will get final prize even I spend $100K right ? same with this game even you spend 100K its not guarantee that you can get final prize.

echus14
03-14-2013, 09:26 PM
@Intan
I agree with you on the random drop issue (all bow to the great random number generator) :)

On the other hand, I believe that what some of the forumites feel is that its not just a pure random drop ... but that there is within the coding an intentional reduction of the likelihood of a drop as you progress in the event (or otherwise based on other factors). I'm not saying that this is true or not, but just that is one school of thought. If true, I guess there is basis for unhappiness since such would in most people's minds constitute a "rigging" of the system.

Intan did u bother to read the article at all on how they manipulate this before you posted your stupid comment. Also gambling here in the u.s has odds. They don't state the odds on purpose making it easy to manipulate. Before you say something stupid at least think about it first. So u don't look like a complete idiot which I'm sure you are pretty used to. Show me a lottery where u are not allowed to find out the odds. Moron.

I'm just asking u to post the gambling games u participate in where u are not allowed to see odds amd where they can change your chances of winning behind the scenes and why you are defending that practice.

The approach from gree has been questioned since the beginning. Fact is that they get away apparently with What they do as people keep investing and throwing them money.

We know nothing About this game and get no info at all from gree how it works. I guess you Will become player x that has questions and at certain moment stops investing and feels ripped off. And then another investor Will replace you...

I know a developer cant give all info, but we dont have a clue About calculation rates, odds.

Pitty as the games are a lovely concept.

The Big Weezy
03-15-2013, 04:44 AM
Yep. That's exactly what they count on. Steal from players and count on them moving on and find a replacement they can steal from

tl;dr: box events are stupid. This deserves a trophy from MENSA.

tl;dr: vapid internet crybabies are vacuous imbeciles on their best behaviour. Who told you a box event was the most intelligent way to spend your gems? Only some naively presumptuous troglodyte would go that route. A moron, if you will.

I think what's most frustrating - perhaps for people specifically like you (the irony of which is not lost) - is to find out that even in something as seemingly petty as a social video game, there's still a heaping hierarchy of hopelessly compulsive gamblers you need to scratch your way to the top of, and it's not necessarily going to happen overnight. I find this cutting edge of social-game pioneering fascinating and humourous to no end - again perhaps because of case studies just like you.

All personal bias and dripping condescension aside, it's an interesting article about a very blurry legal line being drawn in the social gaming sand here, and I will be keen to read future articles detailing your legal battle with an equal amount of mirthful voracity.

In closing, best of luck with your pending class-action lawsuit, TouchedByAPikey; could be better odds on the money spent, that's for sure. ;)

At the very least try to be original instead of plagiarizing a Pulitzer prize winner and attempt to pass off your commentary as your own.

Talked a little too far over your head, did I? Can't say I'm sorry, bud. Reading comprehension isn't something I'm here to help you with. Please find any passage in that book you feel has been lifted, little dude. Furthermore, if Confederacy of Dunces is the most verbose book you've ever read, maybe you ought to think about spending all that money on an online degree of some sort instead? An Associates degree in convenience store management sounds like it would be a step up from your current level of competency.


I'm done running circles around you. Odds of winning a battle of words with you are 100% in my favor, no purchase necessary. Boiled blood for lunch?

lol Gfy...typical if not somewhat un-original strategy of "I'm losing the battle of wits/life" so time to resort back to "my game character can beat your game character up"....will the next cliché be "my dad's bigger than your dad"?

Welcome to the world of business! There will always be companies trying to push the legal lines to get as much money as they can, that's business for you.

On the other hand you sort of thought earlier that your (questionable) extortion method of getting players to donate gold into your guild was brilliant and you didn't understand why people were mad at you. Now you're mad about GREE's method of getting you to pay money to their business (which may be considered brilliant as well). While one concerns game money and one concerns real money they're both essentially questionable ways of raising money and before that gambling law was being considered to be put in effect (as talked about in the article you posted), it was legal for them to do just as your method didn't violate any rules.

Just thought I'd point out the somewhat hypocritical irony, not trying to argue with you in any way. If your lawsuit works then go ahead and do it, probably shouldn't spend anymore gems on chance events though.

As someone who does spend real money, and was left at 6/8 with 50+ shamrocks, in 74th place, I for one, would be interested. I was hitting and refilling repeatedly and received a ridiculous amount of cyclops (37), and bauchan raiders (28), as well as restless spirits (17). Also 11 loch haunters, 6 forest sirens and 4 banshee. I used roughly 6,900 gems and still did not complete the quest. That seems unreasonably weighted in Gree's favor, and yes they are a business and entitled to profit, but I as a consumer am entitled to a reasonable return on my investment. I would not dream of the top prize nor would I try for it, but the simple 8 of 8 should be an assured result for the amount of cash involved.

hahaha, wow what dimwit parents allowed their children access to charging on their account? Either don't tell them the password or don't put your card on their device... so ridiculous

Edit: This is in reference to the article Gfy just posted (trying to avoid confusion)

look people, just face it, we're all suckers. anyone who has spent money on this or any other gree game (including myself) is a sucker.

gripe all you want, no one cares. not while the money is still rolling in.

piker, you make a good point however we are all aware that the "odds" are not available and choose to participate anyway. it's not like they stated the odds and then changed them. everyone participates blindly so i'm not sure what sort of argument you could build for being ripped off.

personally, after the 100's and 100's of stories posted about not getting that one last "whatever", i have stopped using real money or in-game money for box events, choosing only the crappy free option.

Seems a very real alternative.
