If you want the unit, pretty much gotta get all the relics in the first day or else they'll be too rare to get.

After the first 12 hours it always gets much harder to open the boxes and win.... You can always get boxes during the whole event... That part is always easy. You can get them from drops on maps, or by raiding people that already have boxes (I have a few I don't need anymore, if anyone wants to raid me)

I mean when people get the mechanics of the box events, this unit will be gotten by so many people, the stats are waaaaaaaay too high for this sort of event.

Got mine too Rast but it wasn't easy or cheap. It did jump my stats quite a bit though. Not sure on the tip about the first 12 hours but I decided to air on the side of caution anyway.

I swear i saw a spend some get some screen for gem spending / from 9/23 to 9/26 which since i agree with do this earlier the odds seem better i went for it. Not bad gem spend and nice boost. But haven't seen the gem spend splash since an worried as i only really did to score the top spend unit which was 15% alliance boost. And yes im fully aware that im an idiot who has succumbed to gree's wishes. Just please tell me someone else saw that splash screen

Just opened 14 boxes straight gem option trying to get the 10th sword, all gold and honour. Looks like the chances of that 10th sword are extremely low.

Unlike previous events, I am not even getting enough runic case drops to open with gold, let alone gems! I have to kill at least 50 mobs to get a drop. Maybe. Haven't gotten any at all from raids....

Where do you guys get the most drops?

There is nothing random about this latest box event. As usual with Gree, they give out the to prize to a few early finishers who spend next to nothing in terms of gems and then others spend thousands and get nothing. I have been on 9 swords for the last 135 box opens and have still not received a 10th sword. This is not random. It is fixed. Come on Gree, you need to resolve this.

Completely agree with this. Have spent a lot of gems just on trying to get the tenth. 1-9 was fairly easy. 10th, is another story. Seems fixed. Not cool.

I have 150 boxes. I will give you 149 for 1 sword. Any map where the mobs take more than 40 energy to kill. It is almost a 100% drop rate. Gree isn't hiding boxes...they want you to have a lot so they can make money.

WizTech

I'll try hitting bigger mobs then. Previously I was always doing a parallel LTQ with bigger targets I guess, because I'm used to having hundreds of unopened boxes around. This time without another quest I've been trying to keep exp down with smaller mobs...

Well this is the most ridiculous event ever. I have opened roughly 100 boxes with gems and am still stuck on 9/10... Less than a 1% chance of getting this final unit... Retarded GREED... Retarded... I also sent a ticket in just to ask what kind of odds or factors were in getting the prize and the reward winning customer service staff told me to close and reopen my app... Because that's a great ****ing response...

I had some sense that was happening (people having better luck opening boxes at the beginning of event)-- but by the time I thought that, it was too late as I did not start to try opening right away. Seems weird, though. Why would Gree do that? Why not also make it a little easier for LLP's and even MLP's to open the boxes to even the playing field a little bit.. just a thought.

Little Easier = less gems purchased = Gree profit loss, early bird opens the Runes

09-26-2013, 05:05 AM
I guess the algoritm for getting a sword is somewhat 1st box 50% chance, 2nd box 40% and 10th box 1% chance. That way it feels more easy in the beginning and very hard during end. Without extreme luck it should not be possible without using a big amount of gems to better up the odds.

Same here 9/10 since day one and nothing since. Have opened over 180 boxes since and nothing. Gree says "there are no guarantees when opening a box" so they will do nothing. 0/180 is far less than 1%. Even with a 1% chance, I should have had two by this point.

1% chance doesnt mean that you will get 1 sword in 100 attempts. In average yes but individual no.. some would get a sword in 10 attempts and others 0 in 300 attempts.

Picture yourself with a lottery ring with 100 tickets. One of them has a sword on it and 99 are blank. Not easy to pick the right ticket.. Now picture yourself with 180 lottery rings and you will get 1 ticket from each ring. The chance for one of them containing the sword is much higher, but not even near certain.

But of course the odds can be even worse than 1%.

Alexius
09-27-2013, 05:35 AM
Yeah, this event is bs. You can buy gold (100,000) for 50 gems. 40 gems and you "win" 4,000 gold. Honor hasn't been relevant in months for gem users. 100% chance returns that you actually win what you spent on it at 1%?!?! I'm not saying that I should get a sword but there should be some type of worthwhile unit or a lot more good instead of losing when you supposedly have a 100% chance of winning.

Greybeard
09-27-2013, 06:53 AM
There is a reason they keep doing the event the way they keep doing it and not changing a thing. People are blowing major money trying to get that 10th drop. As long as they are making major money, don't expect them to change the formula. But, feel free to continue to feed your addiction! 8)

Hello - My name is Ruger_888, and I am a gem-o-holic. ::hi Ruger::

I've been a member of the bonus program, spend a lot of money I shouldn't have, been reprimanded by my wife, and found myself opening boxes this morning, exchanging useless honor for costly gems in an attempt for the final sword. The Final Sword!

500 gems, nothing. 500 more, nothing. So my decision was easy: To stop, just stop.

Next week there will be a bigger, more "rewarding" prize and will cost the same or more. I'll want it, you'll want it, and gree will want gems. If you have the cash-gas to keep going - I look up to you and wish you well. If you've never spent money on this game, I look up to you even more.

I can't go on like this and want to avoid an embarrassing intervention on national television. So, with that,

Hello - My name is Ruger_888, and I am a recovering gem-o-holic. ::hi Ruger::

This is one of the only times I have posted in the forum.

Of 44 members of our guild only one (and one with low stats:level) got the tenth sword.

7 of our players all spent over 24 hours and a combined total of well over 7500 gems and none managed to get it.

To claim this event is based on a random event is absolutely ludicrous. Its clearly fixed; probably as some sort of leveller; and that means we never had a chance - so have effectively had that money stolen.

We are also all going to stop buying gems as a result of this.

These are some of your most loyal players Gree, who have spent a large and increasing amount of money getting more deeply involved, who now all feel cheated and let down.

Considering how fantastic the game is, and how much we enjoy it, we were happy to be spending money - it felt fair. Now we feel like idiots and wont continue to spend.

thanks.

09-27-2013, 02:12 PM
I swear this is likely illegal on Gree's part. It is basically a bait and switch tactic. Entice you with an easier drop rate in the beginning and change it (or more appropriately shut it off) in the final few days driving people to pay for the last few...if they are lucky enough.

I had 8/10 as of Wenesday evening. I magically got 9/10 with 1 hour 24 minutes left in the event. Wouldn't be it was last gasp time and maybe the thought of only one more would entice me to spend $.

Like many other players, this fiasco of a box event marked the last time I will ever spend gems on a box event of this sort. I did some gold opens in the first few hours, then decided to only do gold opens for the remainder. Over the course of the event, I got exactly ONE SWORD from gold opens. I opened every hour during the day, and many though not all overnight hours. So I would estimate my rate was:

Gold opens: 1 in 75.

Eff that.
