    Hero of hollows eve

    So we work hard for the entire Cycle collecting vouchers and cycle ends with a Crate Event?
    I had completed all tasks to date,on 5/6 going into the Lottery That is crate event,and surprise,surprise find myself on 9/10 for 2 days and waste gems with no luck!!
    This is the final straw for me regarding buying Gems!
    Sick of being fleeced by a company who continue to insult us,lately most of bonuses are temporary and CP prizes are poor,why do we bother?

    It may end with a crate event,but why have Get 10/10 as a requirement to complete an event that has been running for the entire cycle?
    How many of us have EVER got 10/10 on these crate events? They are a joke and only a way to draw you in by giving 8-9/10 and then the last one they reduce your chances considerably,fallen for it the last time personally NEVER AGAIN

    I get it, you didn't complete an event...does that mean you get to come on here and complain?

    YOU ARE NOT GUARENTEED TO COMPLETE EVERY EVENT!

    Does it surprise you that many players don't complete this event? How long have you played this game and you are just now figuring out that these crate events are hard to complete?

    That particular event was tied to every event this cycle. Was GREE not supposed to include the last crate event?

    Fine with GREE tying the event with rest,not so with the Goal being 10/10.
    Also the final prize for raid boss was a worthless voucher for this event,IS THAT FAIR TO THOSE WHO CANT KILL 100 BOSSES?
    Shouldn't these events give a chance to all?
    And it's a Forum,you come on and talk about things.

    Do these people have something wrong with their game? Unless there is a issue with game everybody has the ability to kill 100 bosses.

    Doesn't everybody have the chance to complete these events? Not the guarantee but the chance? Assuming the game is working properly, everybody has the same chance to complete these box events.

    To make a subjective complaint rather than promote a conversation just drives me nuts!

    The point here is that everyone has a chance to complete all events of course using gems, the exception to that is the box events, because event using TONS, or mountains of gems Not everyone has the chance to complete the event
    to get item #9 the odds are under "1%" and to get item #10, odds are close to "0", thus this "LTQ" is pretty much an impossible task to complete even using lots of gems
    they should have made it a 5/5 events and do not include the box event as part of it to get the "final" item

    I guess you were one of the very few lucky ones that got the 6/6 item from the box event

    I know people that complete these events without using gems. I've done it myself several times. Its a choice, use gems to increase your odds or try to open for free using gold. Everybody has the choice; everybody has the chance. Its not a guarantee if you use gems so do it at your own risk. Even if you use gems its still not a guarantee. I've known people to spend 20k gems and not get the 10/10 prize.

    Its a lottery event and its been around for a long time. Its your choice if you want to use gems; nobody is making you do anything. Arguing that people have no chance because they have to use gems on an event is not much of an argument. You have to remember the fact that to you this is a game; to GREE this is a business. Its up to you to decide if you want to pay for something. If you can't afford to buy gems, that is not GREE's fault.

    And yes, I got the 10/10 and the 6/6 items. I used approximately 200 gems to open boxes NOT tons or mountains of gems. I don't always get the 10/10, its a lottery event so I don't spend a lot of gems to complete the event because I know there is no guarantee to complete...only the chance.

    I like how you suggest making the overall all quest only 5/5, that's a good suggestion. Not in the form of a complaint but a suggestion. I'll support that suggestion.

    I've gotten 10/10 twice in the last 8 lockbox events without using gems. Random is random. Stop crying about it.

    If by ability, do you mean using gems? Or by using game $$ and time?? Either way, the short answer is no! Not every1 has the ability. If a player is a free player (like me) then gems are not an option, and unless U have ridiculously high stats (which I don't ) then getting to L100 with game $$ & time is not an option either as the HP for bosses is way to high - what do I do when I have hit the max amount of times, regen'd hit again - repeated for 2hrs & boss still has 30% HP
    left??

    Yes, when I say everybody has the ability I mean using gems. I know there are a few people who are not able to purchase gems because the screen is blank...are you one of those people? Or do you just not want to buy gems? If you can't afford to buy gems DON'T DO IT! Like I said above, this is a business for GREE and a game for you. These events are not meant to finish for free.

    What do you do when you hit the max amount of times and the boss still has 30% HP? Answer: Buy gems and kill it off OR accept the fact that you have gone as far as you can without using gems. Next time you will get just a little farther and the next time you will get even farther. I know several free players that kill 100 bosses and complete the legendary portion.

    You have a choice to purchase gems or not therefore you have the ability.

    The box events are gambling. The only difference, when you go to a casino, the odds are clearly calculable. With GREE, it's a black box that, even by GREE's admission, changes every event.

    GREE has run these events (legally, somehow) for years, and most old timers know that the odds of winning them are pretty small. I think the difference now is that the intermediate steps have much smaller rewards, if any at all. For example, in every previous raid boss, finishing quest 39 normal generally got you a nice unit with some sort of bonus. This time around, all your hard work got you a certificate with no boost to any part of your game. The other events were similar - reduced, temporary, or no bonuses where in past events, there would be some sort of nice perk for finishing. The carrot at the end of all this relied *entirely* on an event almost as level as a game of 3-Card Monty.
