I was on all cash options early on and went 4/4. I used a bit of gold and ended up with 9 only 6 hrs in. Since then i've failed to hit my tenth virus container. That was almost 2 days ago lol

The 15 minutes doesnt work for me either. I try to aim for it but it doesnt work out 9 times out of 10. My 2nd account also just got its 7th container at 33 min past the hour.

Ill Probably make it to 9 out of 10 since the last one is painful and only people who spend lots of gold gets it.
Last event i used about 600 gold just for one and nothing, so ill pass on this one even-though i could REALLY
REALLY use that extra 15% infantry attack :/

First day when the event started i started to hammer.. I used 1600 gold first hour and got stuck on 9.. Since then i never saw anything about virus bio, just sorry,concrete and tanks.. Thats the way how gree gets us.. To use gild again for that sh.t? NEVER!! Gree screwed me up also with the towers, i got 9 with only cash and i spent over 2k gold for just last one and never got it.. I sent ticket to gree about it because should be something wrong 2k gold after a tower.. But yeah i heard back a long story. Well good luck.

I'm stuck on 8/10.... I used over 1800 Gold last time & didn't get the Unit.... I'm not doing that again.... If I get it, great, if I done, my money is still in my account... 😀
I sent a tick the last time, I got a long email saying basically it's not a guarantee I would get the Tower.....

I'm stuck on 7. Counting last event, and outside of first 28 hours of event I am 0 from 7-8 days of trying. This event is like playing the slot machines. Only Gree changes the probabilities. Using gold is a waste of time on this event, in fact it seems if you use gold it lowers the probability of you getting a reward. Have no evidence, but then there is no guidance from Gree on how this works. So would be interested on what people think impacts on the probabilities.

free play
10-21-2013, 12:29 PM
I'm on 8, all free, never bother using gold or cash, it's a lottery, i finished it before for free and had 8 last time for free, don't expect to get the 10 but you never know

Evil Mastermind
10-21-2013, 01:14 PM
It's exactly like winning the lottery. What the gold open does is increase your chance of getting a bio weapon by a factor of 4 (versus cash open). So if the odds of getting the 10th bio weapon is in 1,000,000 with a cash open, it becomes 4:1,000,000 with a gold open.

Just like the lottery, at the end of the day, you'll still lose, whether you buy 1 ticket or 4.

Quite certain this is incorrect. A gold open only ensures a successful open. It does not increase the odds of obtaining the object. The only increase in odds comes from the fact that it actually opens and was not a BLNT.

BTW. On 8, all cash opens.

Evil Mastermind
10-21-2013, 01:37 PM
You're right. Once the container is open, the chance of getting the object doesn't change as a result of the type of opening method used. However, if the odds of a cash open is 1 in 4, a gold open is 4 in 4. The odds of getting the object with a gold open still increases by a factor 4.

I explained like I did in my previous post to make it easy to understand.

I wasn't sure if you were accounting for the opening part or not. Didn't want anyone thinking using gold would increase odds of the object being inside ;)

Ghost-12
10-21-2013, 01:41 PM
...I rather see a price tag, even if it is a hight 600,700 gold for one token (Bio or whatever).
Like this i can actually see what Im wasting money on and i now that i WILL get what i pay for!

Make the last two tokens at 600 gold each lol you GREE will still make money out of it!

What data do you have to support that a cash open is only 1/4?

Glad to see someone is having luck with this event. As usual I'm having none at all. I opened 3 right off the bat the first day, 2 bio containers and 1 concrete. I've been mixing it up to try something different. I got the bio containers off free hits and the concrete of cash hit, go figure. This is usually a event I pass up due to this, I've never gotten more then 6.

Been using cash opening since the event started. Up to 8 bioweapons and opening around 17/18 per day. Several concrete and battle points (shame I have no idea how many BP I have as Android doesn't show them).

The last 7 I have opened have BLNT and I have no doubt if I open one every hour until it ends I wont get to the 10 required - have 163 virus cannisters to open before it ends..... quite a few going to waste there then.:rolleyes:

No secret...Just lucky for me.

Out of all the 10 Crate Events i've only gotten 3 of them with cash opens.

There was one from a year and a half ago that i had 9 with 5 days and 4 hours remaining and wasn't able to get 10th with over 20 open attempts per day. Sometimes your lucky and sometimes your not. Out of all the ones offered this hasn't been my prefered one honestly but beggers can't be choosers.

Gotten 10 of 10 on this one and several others with all cash hits. Seems to just be luck. This is my favorite container event because it is all about luck rather than gold like the other that I never have a chance in hell of getting any of the good units.

Arguably a weaker unit with less desirable boost than last event, I'm curious do u think gree switches the odds depending on the reward? I know many people spent 3000+ gold last event but IMO was a better unit n I have conspiracy theory all crate events all not same odds..😚

I'm on 7/10. I've been using the medium option mostly, but the pay-out has been somewhat less than 50/50 success/failure. I expect I'll get 9/10 and no further. Before now I've piled whole vaults of gold to get that last special item, and it never made any difference how many containers I opened, I NEVER got it, even after opening dozens of containers.

jrb22250
10-23-2013, 10:50 AM
got the 10th. All cash. You have to open them on different minutes of the hour. starting at 1:14 and 26 seconds GMT and adding 3 minutes and 13 second each case after. You have to face South when you do it, and only use your left thumb when pressing the button. (JK)

OK, I have seen 5 accounts all opening 14-15 a day and still only have 5-6 successful. Other guy told me he opens 4-5 a day and had unit yesterday.

It is all luck of the draw. Good Luck everyone.

It looks a lot like they just block it on day 3 and 4, then they give none at all, opening it up in the last hour of the event.
I have never had any on day 3 and 4 when I was on 9 after day 2. But I always got the 10th in the last hour of the event. Coincedence?
Or maybe just those who are on 9/10?
I will see if I'm correct at the end of the event, my last opening will be with gold.

I have never got to ten with cash hits only. Twice I made the 10, including this one. Both had to spend gold last hour to obtain them. This time only 120, last time 500-600. A few months ago. The times in between, even with gold no number 10
