    Poll: Event Luck

    My luck seems to vary from event to event; but in the last two I've been striking out something fierce w/ multiple 3-5 streaks of "sorry better luck next time" (obviously using $/middle option). This Poll is just for those using that middle option (sorry $ users - u have ur own benefit - one being financially able to afford using the gold option; and free users... anyways)

    Just want to know how folks are doing (Sorry, that event progress thread doesn't really tell me much as i dont have the desire to go through page after page of info i really don't care about)

    It seems that in some events everything thing works out fairly smoothly for me to get close to 10 (or 20 in the new events)

    This one I am stuck at 10 with no opens since yesterday morning... I am almost ready to stop trying on this one

    Thumbs down awful!

    awful! no option when my decision is not use gold.
    just a lot of silly items, a few R, and a derisive amount of cash.
    As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it.

    My luck is pretty bad in Crime City and Kingdom Age.
    However, my luck is much better in Modern War, I've been able to complete 2 events, and came close to complete a couple more.

    I do not take into consideration the Epic Boss (Scam). I just don't like it. I understand that Gree needs to make money, but this is just too much for me.

    I usually get the 20 items loot.

    In the first "new format" event (computer chips) I used 120 Tapjoy gold for 8 opens (4 chips) in the last 9 hours, and got lucky with a 25th chip/cash open to earn a spot in the top 500 (346).

    Last event I got to 25 in the end but it wasn't enough. I think the same will happen for this "event". I couldn't even make top 250 with some gold the first "new style" event.

    Consider yourself lucky to get the prize for 20 items if you play for free.

    I've done alright in these events. Actually got the 'top prize' (20), more often than in the old style.
    However, I've been able to open every hour since I'm out of work because my job is seasonal and since it's summer break and my university course hasn't started the next year yet. With the luxury of all this free time I've been able to get 20 event objects but when I have done it has always been on the last day and I believe it was just before the event ended with the Kingpin Killer. So it would be my guess that anyone leading a normal life who can't constantly be on and is a free player, would find it difficult to get 20 event objects. There will be exceptions of people with good luck.


    Someday - and that day my never come, I'll call upon you to do a favour for me. But until that day, accept this justice as a gift.

    I would consider getting one open in 3-5 attempts GOOD considering I have been opening every hour with cash option and have, in a 14 hour period, managed to open 2 boxes in this tank event. I am permanently disabled and unable to work anymore, and I am home and able to play the game as often as I wish while I am not sleeping. Yet I finished this event with 15 and that 15th was received with 3 minutes left to go in this event. My average success rate in opening with cash every hour has been more like one in 7 or 8, not 3-5.

    This only proves to me that Funzio/Gree(D) is trying to force cash users to switch to gold for these events. Not gonna happen for me, I assure you.

    I don't think there is anything unusual about a 3 to 5 streak of better luck next time messages. I have seen that in every event. But I also get streaks of 3 to 5 successful opens. In this event, I had 8 straight successful opens. In other events, I've had a higher number than that of failed opens. The failed opens are more memorable than the successful opens, so you really need to record your results to have an accurate picture of your luck on a particular event. For this event, my open rate was 51% with all open attempts using the middle option.
