I'll probably just go for the middle unit. We'll go together for Harbinger of Doom, Ratma. Spend all those 2,500 gems in that Vampirella Boss event right now...:cool:

Edit: You don't need luck to get it. Just spend those needed gems for those unit...

To be honest, it's becoming quite scary how much this looks like intentional feeding of an addiction or enticing people into one.

I know we're all adults and some of you have very deep pockets, but nevertheless, please just watch your expenditures. Looking at that splash screen ... I just don't have a good feeling about it. Call me silly if you want, but I just don't.

Even 2% alliance attack might only mean 10,000 more attack for a 500k attack player... 10,000 gems.. uh uh, better playing in guilds and doing LTQ's becuase it takes me 1000-1500 per boss or LTQ max. and I get about 10k+ per event increase so 10,000 gems would be 6-8 events 60-80k stat improvement ... nope this is a dud bonus and those that spend normally will just get the rewards most likely first 1-2 anyway through normal use in boss event

^ What would you know.

Read the splash screen carefully. You don't buy the War Avatar for 10,000 gems. It (and the Ogre Brute + Harbinger of Doom) is given as a bonus once you spend 10,000 gems on anything in KA in the allotted time period.

I am sure there are some with deep pockets in which 10k gems is no big deal...but in a week of game play, during a boss event...seems like a lot of hacks will have the 10k unit, not too many others!!!

But I will try...

10,000 gems spent gets you a bonus, the period is only the days that this boss event is running so that means they are encouraging you to buy Crates/Limited Items and use gems excessively on the boss event, it is NOT a normal time frame that would allow you to earn Massive boosts in stats like over several LTQ's so all you can blow 10,000 on is over priced low stats Limited Time items and crates, a poor use of gems for stat increases, in fact the stat increases will be so poor its a total farce. But you seem to have a mind set that 10,000 gems can some how be constructively spent in a stat boosting manner in the time allocated? Go on... convince us how 10,000 spent in a few days with only a boss event, and LT's and crates to spend it on is justifiable... the items themselves that you'd have to go mad on (these limited items ) can't match the stat boosts 5 or more LTQ's over time can give you EVEN INCLUDING the 2% boost you get for splurging on useless items. So go on, polish yourself and see if anyone thinks you actually have any sparkle in you or you're just dull witted like I say. ;) I'm waiting hunny.

It would appear you fell on your sword as two LTQs are running during this promotion date. Of course you didn't know this at the time of your post but, it just shows that we may not always know everything.

I received the units but the +2% alliance increase bonus does not work! I still have only 1500 units involved instead of 1530 as the bonus should do! I also have 520 allies so should have in battle 510 as per the new bonus advertised. We spent so many gems for nothing!?

Before you go saying that, that's now how it's supposed to work. You'll still only have 500 allies. But the a/d you get from them should go up by 2%. Did you check your before and after a/d?

You are correct that it doesn't work but not in the way you are thinking. If your stats were 100k before they now should be 102k although it hasn't been made clear whether it is unboosted or boosted stats that are affected. My calcs seem to indicate that they made the adjustment with .2% not 2%

Thats crazy Winstrol! How did you finish the LTQ so fast without spending at least 200 Gems for refills? I understand your high hero strength, But even then it just seems like you would have needed at least a few gem refills.

Hi Kruppe! You could be right with the 0.2% instead of 2% ... Is so insignificant that i did not even see it...instead of 16k it is just 1600 probably.

Send a ticket, the more who send the greater the chance of a fix. Alliance bonus is in the guild prize set so it makes sense to have it working properly.

The most important was the 2%. The units are about 9k in total so you are looking for approx 25k average for an active player at lvl 200, so to get only .2% that is what is bothering everybody. Is either a bad mistake by Gree or a lousy last minute decision to decrease the bonus, either way is affecting Gree's image.
Everybody does the LTQ as is cheap, so the prizes there are kinda worthless, the difference is made by this type of events because not everyone will achieve it.
