View Full Version : Task Force Alpha: Walk through

For a summary of this and prior LTQ events, and links to the respective walk throughs, see the LTQ Historical Summary post: http://www.funzio.com/forum/showthread.php?52592-LTQ-Historical-Summary

Requirements (normal mode only):
Note, I will bold and identify if new requirements are discovered, but these appear comprehensive and accurate.

Level required: likely lvl 40 in an ideal world, as map level requirements were changed last event and lvl 40 would cover all of the maps. The LTQ event will show up in your Goals, and will have a small 'limited' icon next to it.

A lvl 60 person reported that the event isn't showing up, but a lvl 59 person confirmed they have it, so it is unconfirmed if there is a problem or not.

Barracks: lvl 7 for flamethrower soldier
War Factory: lvl 7 for leopard tank
Air Field: lvl 4 for eagle fighter jet
Shipyard: lvl 2 for submarine

Elite Training Facility: lvl 1 for heavy gunner
Robotics Facility: n/a
Advanced Airbase: n/a
Dry Docks: n/a

Gold spent is down at my current progress. I have 1200 energy, and so far all energy refreshes have been the full +1000 energy.

Devin thanks in advance for your post. Could you list all the building requirements for the normal mode? Last time I went pretty far and spent gold, just to get stuck on a map that required an air field lvl 3...I suggest you get a copy of the resource spreadsheets and look for yourself right now. If you have everything for prestige last time your next one would likely be Seals (Inf 8) as that is the next map up. If you dont have what was needed for prestige then get the spreadsheet now and take a look.

Just hit prestige. Yikes 80 stages

It's not so bad. I'm on 50/80 in prestige right now. A lot of low level maps at the beginning. It'll get ugly toward the end for sure though.

I've spent all this time staging every multi-tap mission I come across to within one tap. Saving me a ton of energy right now.

I have done the same I'm sure it won't be long before they do a energy mission reset with the new event

Any word on the special abilities of the units you can earn through this yet? As an android user, you don't ever really see them, so... it's good to know what you're getting :)

Excellent info. Is that with or without staging? Did you include what it would cost if you had to do maximum hits is what i am asking?



That is absolute energy required, not energy spent (to reflect previously completed/staged missions).

So if you have some at 1/2, 1/3, or 2/3 you will use less energy than reported.

I have the next gen cruiser but no desire to use gold at this time so more data later or tomorrow

Devin out of curiosity, does your energy actually refresh at the regular rate you listed of 360 every 2 hours or do you have the next gen cruiser to get it up to 480 every 2 hours?

I don't have any boosts on my energy regen, so I'm 360/hour. I add +1000 energy to my totals just in case I missed something, and to account for that.

What is the difference between normal and prestige mode?

Jman
04-29-2013, 05:29 PM
So I am I right in assuming that "normal" mode has 3 different levels? The first "40" shows 1/3. Correct?
Not 3 different levels, you have to complete 3 people/buildings to move to the next level which will have another 3+ people/buildings etc.

Prestige mode has better rewards, is longer, and costs more energy.

You need a Level 8 Airfield to complete step 79/80 in prestige mode
You need a Level 9 War Factory to complete step 80/80 in prestige mode

Devin
04-29-2013, 06:21 PM
Ok I'm done the event. Collecting unit building info now. I didn't see anything new in normal mode compared to the prior events on first glance- but I'll review more. To finish prestige mode, as noted, you're going to need at least a lvl 8 airfield and lvl 9 war factory, as well as lvl 7 barracks which has been needed all along. I'm breaking for dinner.

Gains are roughly the same, however more has been moved into prestige mode now.

I documented gold as I went... each gold purchase got me 1000 xp, except for 1 map, lvl 78 or 79, where I got 49 or so less than 1000 xp for each refersh - it probably won't matter. I had pre-staged levels, unfortunately, none of my pre-staged levels were used in this LTQ.

Enjoy :)

Hmm. I don't know. You will need to contact support using the in-app button, or hope a developer / gree person like cj54 is lurking and takes notice.

I'd guess its related to the maps..they recently changed the lvls needed to unlock them, but maybe there is some leftover issue somehow. That's just a guess.

Sorry that's not more help,

Devin
04-29-2013, 08:42 PM
I think all of the unit building requirements are documented. That said double check.. I've completed it as accurately as I can, but all my unit buildings are lvl 10 so it'd be easy to miss. I've cross referenced it with the missions spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/lv?key=0AiSsos_vax1hdEhYUGRSdGtsY01odV9hS2QybXFiQ3 c&f=true&noheader=true&gid=1

Regarding the lvl requirement, I'd have guessed lvl 40 as all maps are now available at that level or below, but some are reporting not being able to see. The highest report I've seen is a lvl 60 player not able to see the LTQ.

Thanks,

Devin

groovdog
04-29-2013, 11:39 PM
If you ever had any doubt that these are about money look at the maps they picked. They skipped the next one from the last event (which requires barracks 8) to go several deep to require upgrades from people that might not otherwise have them. And did enough upgrades to ensure you cant complete them during the event. Not doing instant upgrades for a third time and never posting suggestion to people to do anything as they probably read my post that people should do upgrades for the next four maps over the next month as they went 2 deep to that in the next event....

I gotta hand it to you Bro this is the most Xcellent advice I have seen here in a long time.
I was waiting for the praise to die down so mine would not be lost in the flood of thankful fanmail,but that time doesn't seem to be coming!
Keep up the good work,less aspirin needed by many thanks to you!





Requirements: CHECK BACK HERE OFTEN, I update as I discover new information.

Level required: likely lvl 40 in an ideal world, as map level requirements were changed last event and lvl 40 would cover all of the maps. However, people lvl 60 are reporting that the event isn't showing up, so perhaps there's a problem... If the event requires the previous map unlock level (i.e. before the change), you probably need to be lvl 75. This is pure speculation.

Barracks: lvl 7 for flamethrower soldier
War Factory: lvl 7 for leopard tank
Air Field: lvl 4 for eagle fighter jet
Shipyard: lvl 2 for submarine

Elite Training Facility: lvl 1 for heavy gunner
Robotics Facility: n/a
Advanced Airbase: n/a
Dry Docks: n/a

Gold spent is down at my current progress. I have 1200 energy, and so far all energy refreshes have been the full +1000 energy.

They skipped the next one from the last event (which requires barracks 8) to go several deep to require upgrades from people that might not otherwise have them. And did enough upgrades to ensure you cant complete them during the event.

It's not as bad as you think. Without changing levels, they could have required a lvl 9 airfield for stealth surveillance drone, lvl 8 barracks for SEAL, and higher advanced buildings. I think they were reasonably nice. Your advice about pre-checking the missions ahead is excellent. For those that don't know, the mission spreadsheet is here:

Add your starting energy and levels and you get a feel. I will get to 73 or so spending 400. Normally would have finished but I tubed too much on last hr of WD to finish plus I would have had to gold build 3 unit building upgrades so no way gonna do that a 3rd event in a row. Upgraded during WD but of course Gree jumped like 7 maps deeper to catch some of us by surprise. Not gonna play that game any more as not only am I an irritated customer but also the rewards aren't as good this time even if I had upgraded already.

I'm EXTREMELY UPSET because lots of other players are telling me how much it's helping to raise their stats, and combined with all the other ridiculous problems i've had on this game(box events are complete waste of time and I think rigged & People with a LOT lower scores beating me while my attack and defense stats jump up and down literally everytime I raid/attack someone), I'm about ready to go back to Crime City and let it be the only game I participate in. If anyone has any helpful information I'd gladly accept it... Thanks.

Does anyone else feel like the energy refill should be boosted to 2000 ? . . . . A stamina refill is for 50 - that's a lot - 1000 energy doesn't seem to be vey much in comparison.

After 32/40, the event disappears for me every time I complete a new step. I have to close/ reopen the game for it to reappear.

I had a force close as soon as I completed 31/40, but right before I received the splash screen showing my reward. I opened the app back up to see that I no longer had the LTQ event in my goals nor have I received the TF-Alpha Rookie, however the previous rewards are still in my inventory. I have everything required to complete this LTQ, but have now been without the goal for over 24 hours. Has anyone else had this issue? Also, ever since this has happened I am getting force closures every 20 - 40 seconds. I am on Android btw.

What mission numbers in prestige mode do I need these for?

War Factory: lvl 9 for mobile artillery
Air Field: lvl 8 for comanche helicopter

I'm trying to work out which one to upgrade.

Edit: Diregard, I just realised that I have no chance of going that far into prestige mode.

I need this info also. I have all the unit buildings high enough, with the exception of the war factory.

It is currently upgrading to level 8. To get it to 9 in time will take a lot of gold.

QUESTION: What level in prestige can I get to with a level 7 War Factory? Can I get further with a level 8, or will it need to be 9?

Thanks again Devin for a superb thread! It is amazingly helpful!

Stop being lazy chilli mk2 lol.

I just used Devins info and then looked on the map at the targets to find the unit which requires a certain building :p

Unfortunately for me it's lv29 as I'm an idiot who never bothered to upgrade their barracks :)

As noted, people can use the mission spreadsheet to look up the info. That said the lvl 8 war factory unlocks mlrs, which isn't used in any map, so yes you need to complete lvl 9 to get any use out of it.

I believe the lvl 9 war factory only required for lvl 79 and/or 80. I am pretty sure I documented it in the actual first post.

Absolutely it's because of the old app version. You need version 3.6 or whatever the current version is- ltq's requires an app upgrade.

Thanks for the walk through Devin. For those that do not care about getting experience points or leveling up, below is what I do for the LTQ events. Sorry if this has been discussed already. After the last LTQ event I went back and Pre-hit all the maps that were used so that each target on the map only had 1 more hit in order to defeat hit. So, during the LTQ event instead of having to hit something 3 or 4 times I only had to hit it once. This has saved me a lot of energy and gold so far. I am currently on prestige level 53 and have not spent any gold as of yet on this event. I'm sure I will have to spend some at the end, but it won't be nearly as much if I had not done that.

Hope this can help somebody down the road.

It's a great idea and I do that too. I usually call that pre-staging the missions, having heard other people call it that. The problem is you don't know which missions to pre-stage... So I did 3 maps and unfortunately they weren't used this LTQ.

For the map Bomb Maker Compound, none of the "people" are on my screen. Like in every other map there are people walking around as missions and on this one, only this map, I have no one. The other problem is that sometimes when I try to go to that map the game freezes at the "traveling to bomb maker compound".

So as you can tell, I am stuck at level 40 with plenty of energy and probably no chance at the final normal mode unit. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU GREE!!!!!

Anyone have this issue or know how to fix it?

Thanks!!

Did this all the way through to the Bomb Makers Compound. Did everything there was and went to take out the antiaircraft cannon. Problem is I cannot complete this event now because it needs a leopard tank whiich requires a lev 8 war factory, I have only a level 5. And there is not enough days to level it to 8. And no I cannot afford gold to buy my way through this. So I cannot gain/complete the final item. Just a warning to you.

Well actually leopard tank is a lvl 7 war factory, and that's why at the top of my first post I've got the requirements. You should be able to see lvl 7 war factory required to complete normal mode. Likewise, in the second post which covers prestige mode there are additional requirements. If you compete in a LTQ again and use my thread, check for that info there.

In theory it would apply. It depends on the ammount of accumulated energy and time you've got plus your refill when you level up (and how many times you lvl up), wich will demand additional PvP wich will demand stamina.... I guess you can figure out the roughly ammount energy needed for such a manouver. Give it a try! ;)

Hey Muse_boa, I did look at it. You're probably right...but I did not want to reduce the requirements as this set has been stable and worked for people. I consider a lvl 4 airfield table stakes, so didn't feel I'd get a bunch of people screaming that I made them upgrade their airfield ;) plus, anyone moving on to prestige needed a lvl 8 airbase anyhow, so the lvl 4 was dwarfed by the lvl 8.

Thanks,

Disappointing:/

For these LTQ's you need to have unit buildings upgraded, that you normally never use if you don't do Missions. In this case, i would need to upgrade my Factory from Level 4 to Level 7 (already used quite some time for Barracks) which is impossible in the time remaining. So although due to vigilant work to get to level 40 in Normal, i won't be able to get the big prize....

The requirements for the LTQ are identified on the first page of the post, under the requirements section. Also, as others have posted in the past you may find it helpful to pre-investigating what will likely be required and prep for the next LTQ... A lvl 7 war factory is not a surprising or new requirement given the maps used and previous ltq's (which also needed it).

Very appreciative of the requirements Devin - had to upgrade my War Factory twice to finish, and that Leopard Tank will only be needed for one hit, right at the end of 40/40. I'll still need to finish off the upgrade with Gems, but I'd have been snookered if you hadn't put it up :)

Many thanks!

Hi Devin,

my comments were not regarding your excellent post, which contains very nice information regarding requirements. And yes, i did read the whole post, so i was aware.

I find it difficult to determine exactly what is needed beforehand for an LTQ, as i remember requirements being a little lower for the other LTQ's, where i didn't have enough time to get to the end. Now i basically do, but it's of no use. Guess the only thing to do is to focus all upgrades on unit buildings and hoping i do the correct ones for the next LTQ.

Thanks for your response and your good work providing the rest of us with important information (Which should be provided by Gree in the first place).

Yes you are correct. I did notice that it is actually lev 7 after I posted. Sadly I have been doing all my building now in stat plusses like the infirmary,etc. I guess I need to backtrack before the next time. This was the 1st 1 I've done. It was fun, it helped my character a ton with the rewards. Just wished I could have completed that 1 last step with the antiaircraft cannon. Maybe next time.

Now I am stuck on level 70/80 because I need to buy ground units but of course I can't get them with my war factory only being level 1 now. Sweet! Thanks for the great run through as always Devin.

I'm on the last part of the normal quests, doing the bomb maker compound, and am encountering 2 bugs:

1) Game gets hung up on loading the map.
2) If the map does load, NPC units are invisible. I can attack the buildings fine.

Has anyone encountered this before and if so, is there a user side fix?

I put a ticket in last night, but I am doubtful it will be fixed before the event is over. Would they compensate and award me the normal LTQ reward since it is pretty clear I would have completed it and it was not due to user error?

I'm on the last part of the normal quests, doing the bomb maker compound, and am encountering 2 bugs:

1) Game gets hung up on loading the map.
2) If the map does load, NPC units are invisible. I can attack the buildings fine.

Has anyone encountered this before and if so, is there a user side fix?

I put a ticket in last night, but I am doubtful it will be fixed before the event is over. Would they compensate and award me the normal LTQ reward since it is pretty clear I would have completed it and it was not due to user error?

The only thing I know to try is reboot your phone/tablet (for iOS devices, hold the power button then swipe to shut down).

I am on prestige level 76 and trying to figure out how much energy each level needs to see if it is worth continueing or if I will need more gold.. I know you put the total for the mode but for me would be awesome if you could put how much energy each levels needs

You can use the gold to figure it out. Every 20 gold = 1000 energy. Just calculate how much gold I used each lvl and convert to energy.

Nope, the surprise this time was the 80 missions to complete prestige, and the 2 concrete then 1 unit rewarding.

Devin - thank you for your work, it is truly appreciated...

You're welcome. Thanks for all that posted help for others. See you again in about a week with the next LTQ.

Yes, it's real gold and I buy it just like that.

However, I also wait for a gold sale from gree, often 20% off during WD events. I try to buy iTunes gift cards on sale, usually you can get a $50 card for $40 (20% off). And if you spend >$500 you get bonus gold, so I try to buy for 5-8 months at a time to obtain bonus gold (and budget how much gold i can spend each month and ensure my gold lasts 5-8 months and I don't blow it all in 1 month). If you are considering obtaining bonus gold, contact gree support first to obtain the program details/instructions.

Compared to the big gold, I'm a really light spender.

I'm curious/hopeful..... I'm trying to get mission 37 done before the clock runs out in 17 minutes and I'm going to be about 600 energy short, if I could just level up (d'oh about 900xp away from that happening) I could complete it..... does the event stay up as long as your app is open like the box/crate events at the end?

EDIT:
Time has run out and the answer is no siree bob, once the clock runs out.... the clock runs out. C'est la vie

man i made it to 40/40 with a lot of time left but did not have enough energy to do all the missions . . . so close to getting a nice unit with little or no gold . . .

Devin, just wanted to thank you for the information. It was extremely helpful and saved me a lot of money.

Please let me know if there's any way I can repay you....maybe hopping into your faction for a minute to drop some cash into your group's vault before heading back to my home faction again? I feel like I owe you something for your hard work and selflessness.
