View Full Version : Park Trafficking LTQ



Assault and Flattery
07-23-2013, 01:00 PM
The LTQ is finally upon us. The minimum level to participate is 31. There are, as (almost) always, 2 modes of this.

In case you missed it, this is starting a day late, you didn't miss anything, and it's being extended another day.

Here is the info for both:

Once you do all of those, you get the super fancy elite mode:

Also, I am not adverse to feedback regarding the format of these event posts I've been making. I've been trying to get the info together before the events as much as possible. I'm trying to make them easy to read, informative, and aesthetically pleasing.

Do the goal jobs have a 100% payout for this or will we sometimes finish a job and get no item?

It would be great I'd you could include the item type (gun, melee, etc) since its not always evident from the description, thanks!

No green arrows and I don't always get the item from the job listed. Here's something else that happened: Goal 2 stated to hit the Seafood Restaurant and the Sushi restaurant until you get 2 knives. I hit the Sushi Restaurant 4 times and got nothing. I hit the Seafood Restaurant twice and got 2 knives. Nothing happened. I hit the Seafood Restaurant again and got a 3rd knife. That then triggered that I completed the goal.

Once you collect the items you need, go to your hood then back to the map you were on then wait for a few seconds, the goal complete screen will popup.

I wonder if they will sneak in some good items to farm. Gonna have to check the stats of the collect items.

KemoKidd
07-23-2013, 01:20 PM
Once again, for the third goal I had to get one extra item then what was stated!

Edit: Nevermind. I noticed you have to wait quite a bit for the goal completion to kick in (over a minute for one of them!).

There is no way of knowing the energy needed as not every job drops an item. That's going to suck on later levels...

A&F, two things..one, is there any modifiers hidden? Two, I have noticed that the first drop of the item doesn't always count. It's happening more as I move along and needing more items...

murf

But I wonder if they is going to be some medium strength weapons here...L5 Cop Pistols are 4/6 which is probably the best loot at that map...maybe the later maps have 30/30 or better weapons, with decent drop rates...

07-23-2013, 01:38 PM
Sounds good. Appears a few people were lucky the first few rounds. I'm at level 15 and the drop rate is becoming more like 1 out of 3. This may take a while....

If the drop rate is 50% and you have to click it once, there is some luck factor...

We are going to have to click 1,000 times...my guess the range of droprates will be +/- 5%...so luck evens out as you increase attempts...I think it's called the Central Limit Theorem.

Found 4 items out of 5... Forgot how many I got (because it took a while to get them, due to lack of drop rate)

had to go through my inventory for 5 minutes looking for the items.


Gree. Get your act together, either fix this LTQ or fix the inventory. This is ridiculous.

murf
07-23-2013, 01:51 PM
Murd the law of large numbers

Definition of 'Central Limit Theorem - CLT'
A statistical theory that states that given a sufficiently large sample size from a population with a finite level of variance, the mean of all samples from the same population will be approximately equal to the mean of the population.

Definition of 'Law Of Large Numbers'
In statistical terms, a rule that assumes that as the number of samples increases, the average of these samples is likely to reach the mean of the whole population.

Are we both right?

So this is one of those LTQs that depends on random drops? Two words for that:

FU*K

THAT.

Looks like I have another 5+ days to preload for another ltq.

For anyone who dislikes this idea of random drop, just do not participate. Gree will get the idea and hopefully not do one of these a-hole ltq formats ever again.

yes. i agree. odds at 18/27 are <50% drop rate. i can only imagine what its going to be like at elite mode. f- that.

Biggest BS is after doing all that work, getting 7 googles, no completion alert....

Visit your syndicate after every drop, it synchronizes with the server and the item should be counted, at least that is working here. Don't think I'll be doing elite if luck is now going to be a factor in LTQs...going through this one as slowly as possible.

so, long term projections. seems like it'll be better joining a top syndicate in order to get stronger. making ltq's harder, crates more expensive, the gap between the rich and poor, the gap between the top syndicates and free/less gold syndicates gets larger.

so, the question that really pops up into my head is, what's the point of playing this game anymore? really?

If you are at lower level with not so much explosives .. you could stock up on them depending on how many energy you want to use !
level 4 deportation center gives you a 5/5 for 20 energy a pop :) dropping 99/100
level 13 blues club gives you a 10/14 explosive for 72 energy, dropping 2 out of 3

07-23-2013, 02:22 PM
stat:XP gain ratio is in line with boss events for at least the first 11 levels, as long as you have 100% drop rates (I have so far, iOS user) and you choose the lower XP targets.

Sorry...different thread

First 13 level items...maybe they are trying to make it attractive for low-level campers, because these items could be useful for first 50 or so levels, especially the cars and explosives....

Level 1 - 2 Small Arm Pistols - 3 / 2
Level 2 - 2 Sushi Butcher Knives - 4 / 2
Level 3 - 3 Mafia Cars - 4 / 4
Level 4 - 3 Hand-Made Explosives - 5 / 5

Level 6 - 4 Stakeout Binolculars - 5 / 9
Level 7 - 5 Dock Trucks - 6 / 9
Level 8 - 5 Mafis Tuxedos - 5 / 11
Level 9 - 6 Parkside Rifles - 8 / 10
Level 10 - 6 Luxury Cars - 11 / 9
Level 11 - 7 Antique Dagges - 8 / 13

For the new people that has just read this thread , you need to read the LTQ and look out for the required buildings that you need to hit. People saying where are the green arrows are really fail and expect GREE to hold their hands to do such a simple quest.
The items that do drop from the said building aren't 100% but the odds are pretty decent from what ive seen.
When you do get the required items you need to wait a good 10-20 secs before the quest completes, you dont need to switch to another hood or reload the game, you just need to wait.

None of the points you made are necessary and just added to the annoyance of every player out there.

Makes me wonder if Gree has an department with the sole purpose to make the game as user unfriendly as possible.

Thanks a lot murf. This is very helpful. As you get further along, it'd be much appreciated if you updated that list from time to time.
Also if possible with the map and building for the new ones - won't get very far with actually doing the levels because of the xp, so I'd just be farming items if they're good.

I'm confused by most of the complaining on this thread...I have no problem with needing extra items to finish each level, at the set amount it completes immediately each time. As for the drop rate decreasing, I just finished lvl 18 with a 100% drop rate. And no green arrows? Really? Just read the name of the building and look for it on the map. This isn't that bad of an LTQ, I like that they changed it up from the usual LTQ format.

Yeah, like the fact some people dropped a vault of gold on the last case event and got their items just before closing and others completed it for free with 2 days to spare(and I got it for free as well, just saying). Yay! Exciting, so random!
If you like luck, visit your local casino. Knowing exactly how much gold you needed to finish a LTQ and then deciding how far it was worth to go according to what you were willing to spend made sense. This makes no sense at all...I could see some people dumping a vault at the end boss and still not getting the last 7/15 stats crap item needed to complete the LTQ. How is that a good change?

LMAO if you do the case event the last day , it can cost you more then a vault of gold !

Wait till you hit the big leagues , we are talking about vaults !

See syndicate wars 100k IP is a vault of gold :p , see those 1million scores those are 15k gold yes 15000 gold !
10 vaults :p. And yes there people who can afford it without blinking a eye !

DannyD
07-23-2013, 04:28 PM
I don't see what the problem is with this LTQ... Case events are not 100% guaranteed to open, so this LTQ is similar to that. For all of you saying you don't get the item 100% of the time, I am sure you are not MEANT to be getting it that often. I surely didn't, and didn't think that was abnormal.

So far I have spent 700 gold, I had 4000 energy to start, and there is still nearly 5 days left. I am on level 15/27 on elite, about half way through. I think this is one of the cheapest to complete, unless the last 12 levels are going to be crazy.

PhantomNine
07-23-2013, 04:43 PM
Suggestion? Put a letter in front of the item which corresponds to the category?
(A) Armor - (C) Car- (E) Explosive - (M) Melee - (G) Gun

Would that work? I think it would. Sort of simple and no column needed. Just a thought.
I appreciate all the work all our volunteers do, to help us in this game. I know a lot of time is involved and all I can say is....Thank you...(IOU) PhantomNine

that is cause they need people to go up in stats !
See they are giving everybody free stats , cause just cut last two digits off your stats !
that is your stats compared to the old gaurd ! , see where in the past 300k stats means 5-10k $ spending !

Nowadays 1 million stats is just 100k , in spending money would be roughly 2k$ !

Just syndicate wars brings much more income then anything else , 60 million points is roughly 900000 gold ! (not expressed back into money , cause of different bonus rules and free gold ;) )

So to particpate in those wars , people need stats and money !

So far I have spent 700 gold, I had 4000 energy to start, and there is still nearly 5 days left. I am on level 15/27 on elite, about half way through. I think this is one of the cheapest to complete, unless the last 12 levels are going to be crazy.

Danny D, are the elite levels double that of the normal mode requirements from what you've seen thus far? Thanks

Not getting 100% drop rate ... no big deal ...green arrows don't need em just read what's required and scope it out.... info by assault just awsum 10/10 ... thanks for finally providing requirements and rewards time to get bank truck delivered I gunna smash this one :) .... whilst I'm here the last box event annoyed me a bit 10/10 and 7/8 mist out on car ... and got stacked out on the first 7 of the 8 prizes i allready had.... I won't be wasting gold on that type of event again too random for me I like to know if I plug away I will get the reward ..

*Bump* I take back what i said this drop rate issue is actually annoying .I understand its a new version of LTQ`s . Does anyone think this was done on purpose? or flawed code ?

I like the change of pace with this LTQ. However I have noticed quite a huge change in loot drops from when I began, to where I am now in lvl 16. As a result, I will not spend any gold on this event. And I am a gold spender. I will just use my free energy to get as far as I can get and that will be it.

Wtf, 3 LTQ events and no boss event? You replace the boss event with a buggy crapshoot LTQ. What are you people thinking? No gold for me on these LTQ.

Thanks for posting the rewards that was A very nice change of pace.

I can't think many players prefer having 3 LTQ over having a boss event in the mix. im sure it likely has to do with gold spend because you did this before. I'm pretty sure most in my syndicate spend gold to finish the boss events, not sure they are going to be excited to buy more gold for yet the 3rd LTQ in 3 weeks, BORING. Unless the rewards are just that good.

Yeah, like the fact some people dropped a vault of gold on the last case event and got their items just before closing and others completed it for free with 2 days to spare(and I got it for free as well, just saying). Yay! Exciting, so random!
A vault of gold? Think you might be exaggerating just a little bit? Lol

Nope. I spent over a vault of gold for the Getaway Car. I had 65 riot items before I got the final one I needed as my 66th riot item.

Edit: apologies to everyone else for filling in the details on the LTQ late. Happened a day later than I expected and I was asleep when it went live. I think my topic has the answers to most other people's questions though, e.g. the loot items, what tpe of items the prizes are, etc. I'll post pictures soon.

Yep. It was reminiscent of the old collect-10s, where some people (very, very rarely) got the item for free, most gold spenders expected to spend around a vault of gold for the 10th item (less than that was considered "lucky"), and some people could spent 3-5+ vaults and still not receive the 10th. The only difference here was that a ton of people got that stupid car for free or at least very cheaply, and I hit so many people with garbage stats/items who had that car that it was mildly frustrating. This could also be superstition (a la the "spend gold on the first day and you're more likely to get the item" trick which I regard as superstition), but some people believe it's bad to have too many boxes left to open. No idea if it's true or not, but I had over 4000 boxes due to the PvP fight goals (completed 14/14 on Saturday) and chasing the leaderboards for the syndicate showdown.

And thanks. I'm almost finished with the info for normal mode.

Also, I am not adverse to feedback regarding the format of these event posts I've been making. I've been trying to get the info together before the events as much as possible. I'm trying to make them easy to read, informative, and aesthetically pleasing.

not sure if this was mentioned already, but it would be good if equipment names could be written, instead of picture with a table. in this way, one could use the search tool of the forum to find out when and where a particular item was won

I can take a stab at a few. Short answer is most items have been reused, some (especially LTB items) multiple times already.

Choker Garrote - Madame Payne boss item, rare
2 Bombs, 1 Blast - old item, not sure-- I suspect either an old gold/crate item
Collector Cadillac - previous LTQ item, not 100% sure if used in a 3rd LTQ or if I got it somewhere else
Ornamental Blade - Collect-20 item, believe given at either 10/15?
Mac Daddy - originally a crate item, reused in previous LTQs
Chinatown Underbelly Viper - LTB from Pagoda event, reused in LTQs
Titanium Knife - LTB item from Transtech
Rider's Coat - can't remember, but I have 2 of them
Noise Maker - LTQ?
Upgraded AKS-74 - LTQ
Semi-Automatic Defender - collect-20, was the prize at 10
Anarchy Gloves - don't know, only have 1
Street Van - also don't know
Urban Air Recon - collect-20, prize at 20, also reused in LTQ
Machine Gun Music - LTQ, possibly existed before that as a crate item?
Heist Gear - Don't Know
Secret Identity - LTB, Toy Box
Chinatown Underbelly Vest - LTQ from Pagoda, Syndicate Showdown Fight Goal prize (10?/14)
Upgraded LAM - LTQ
Stage Effects - LTQ


Hardly an exhaustive list, just off the top of my head.

Bro. Read the instructions in the goal list carefully.

E.g. "Do jobs on Tattoo Parlor in Circuit Street until you get 46 Tattoo Needles." Clicking the "visit" button takes you to Circuit Street. Now find the Tattoo Parlor. Sometimes the building might not look like what you're expecting, but rest assured if you click a building once, a bar will read, e.g. "Tattoo Parlor - Steal Needles." Notice the buildings match. I can rest assured I have the correct building, and can click this Tattoo Parlor a second time to perform the job. It may or may not give a loot item. I'm fairly certain that the drop rates are at least 50% however, although it would not be unusual to get a string of no loot drops. Cf. Gambler's fallacy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gambler%27s_fallacy) / Insensitivity to sample size (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insensitivity_to_sample_size).

Good Lord, Gree posts a list of levels and prizes and stats and it turns into three pages of adolescent whining.

Yes, there is a little luck involved (like many Gree events) and yes, you have to figure out the targets for yourself without your little green arrows, but get over it. If you don't want do spend gold, just dont. Spare us the tantrum.

Heaven forbid Gree puts a little game play into a LTQ. Jeez.

I had a bit of bad luck on Graveyard as well. Try switching between the Flower Shop and the Funeral Chapel every two hits or so. The cases don't "replace" the loot items, though, you most certainly can get both at once.

I am getting crates and drops at the same time. On the last level of elite, my drop rate was just over 50%, even including a string of 10 no-drops in a row... It happens.

Also, for those of you who don't think this LTQ is worth it.... I'm happy to gain ground on you. Waiting for one last rifle on 27/27, and my stats have gone up 32000/36000... If that's not worth gold, I don't know what is. I never camped or anything, so the high level drop items replaced a lot of my crap items. I also went back to the smashed cars and loaded up on an extra 50 explosives at 15/15, so now I'm at 500 non-consumable explosives. This LTQ is good if you give it a chance! Expensive... But good.

I too started the day with terrible luck (not as bad as you). Spent over 1,600 energy at the junk yard and got 6 bombs in 19 attempts! I also wondered if the cases slowed things down.

I was willing to spend gold at the end of this event to get the final prize but this definitley turned me of of that idea. You need way too many items in elite mode for me to waste energy on an extremely poor drop rate.

Think thats true, but in between i will farm some junkyard explosives

Totally agree...spent way too much gold to get the Contraband Chaser[on elite]
I would blow over 1k energy and not get a single drop, only the relic cases and cash. Super frustrating but I ended up going to far to turn back and just bought more gold... it was a great item but I probably won't spend as much again on an LTQ with the "luck" format ever agian.

The loot items still seem to be farmable BTW - just got another junkyard explosive to test it.

Picking-up some more 'fillers' is probably a better use of energy/XP than the current LTQ with it's poor rates.

Thanks wasn't sure if it would work after but the purpose LTQ is to get stats anything above 200/300 are worth it for experience. Those loot item only small amount to attack/defence but prizes for current one are reasonable.

I actually knew about most of this, but having said that, I still thought it was useful. Nice job!

Could you add in how much energy it takes to complete each one?

really like the format.. as a moderate gold user, I don't feel like I'm forcing to go ALL IN or nothing here.

thanks

Well, in the last LTQ event, Money Talk, we supposed to have another 2 hours remaining (because it was started late in the beginning). But when the fight event started on the afternoon, it disappeared (I saw the remaining of something about an hour and some 55 mins or so of the event before it disappeared right in front of my eyes). At first I thought that it was just a glitch or a missing update due to the fight event coming up and so I restarted and checked all the updates. But it was disappeared for good...and I had full bar of energy too... sending tickets?! Good luck!
