This event is a scam

  • This event is a scam

    Dont know for you... but I feel cheated.

    Drop rate ratio for cards is around 0.023 for stamina and 0.036 for energy

    Meaning :

    1000 Stamina gives you around 24 Cards
    1000 Energy gives you around 36 Cards

    DONT SPEND FPs on jobs or bosses until they fix ratio up.

    At this rate... PVP is a much better investment: 15 stamina average spent for for 7 cards (gives x10 more cards than doing jobs or energy)

    Yeah I was up for when it first started and drop rate was pretty excellent, for jobs and bosses. Now....very limited I've found. Good thing I got a decent start I guess lol

        Re: This event is a scam

        I have to go the Boss/Jobs route as I'm a Stamina/Energy player. Certain cards have higher drop rates than others. I'm literally one card away from making another Gold Coin. But I know in the meantime PVP player builds will have stolen some of my chips/cards. Which is all part of it.

        Must admit though, when I look at their profiles, most haven't even got one Gold yet either. I wouldn't say the event was a scam though. It's like crate spinning. Kind of. If you want to take the chance you can. But it doesn't always come off.

        I've just reached the Ariel LT threshold. Still deciding whether or not to keep going. Unless your very lucky, or have mega stats though, it's gonna cost a bit to get the 35. Or more if you wanted to try and end up in the top bracket. At the end, if you get enough, you get a guaranteed Epic. Plus quite a bit more.

        Think how many times you've spent the FP equivalent on crates, and been unlucky. For some people it will be worth it, but not for others.

          Sorry but compared to the last event (Six Pirate)... it *feels" like a scam.

          Drop rate was much, much higher. Kinda feel cheated.

          This game is about having fun... its not fun anymore when you feel cheated.

            I think "scam" is a little harsh. They are quite clear about the stam and drop rates. They are also clear about the rewards if you choose to invest in FP participate aggessively. A "scam" suggests cheating or underhanded activity. And they are doing neither. Obviously this event is a revenue builder for them- they are in it to make money- but no one is forcing you to do anything.

            Just because things arent organized the way you'd like them to be with a nice fat EasyButton smack in the middle of your home screen, doesnt mean devs are being dishonest or unethical.

              I joined the game literally just as that last event finished. So I can't compare 😃. Shame really as it sounded fun from what I've read about it. I guess it's hard for the devs to balance out everything, without disappointing some players.

                Really? And where did you find that info?

                Devs have been known to modify, I mean tweak, drop rates on the fly. (Drop rate from last event was "tweaked" near the end last time, remember?)

                Thank you for tying to insult me... take a chill pill or go home.

                My point is this:
                This event is not badly organized... it just FEELS BAD TO THE PLAYERS (see all the other posts complaining)
                I dont mind spending FPs (and I have spent alot)
                I just like my FPs to feel rewarding. In the case of THIS event... it does NOT...

                And thats why they will NOT have more of my money for this event. I am sure a lot of players are thinking like me.

                  Definitely feeling robbed. I have money in the iTunes account and want to make a big purchase but not at these drop rates.

                    I'm pretty much at 35 Coins, and I've only used 250fp.
                    And it was all Boss hunting and Jobs.
                    And I got at least enough cards to make all three coins per refill.

                      Re: This event is a scam

                      Here's the thing guys - this is only the second event in UE history. They are still trying to figure out the right drop rates to make it balanced. Last time, many people who bought no FP at all were able to place very high because of the high drop rate. They are trying something new this time, so people who buy FP actually get a decent advantage in this event. The whole point of events is that they come up with a way that is fun for players to partake in that drives FP sales.

                        Re: This event is a scam

                        Well I love the event. Just don't like it personally for me because of my build. But yes these events are being tweaked and are fun for most players. I personally preferred the last event as it required everyone to get involved and on their toes. This one is slightly favorable towards high lvled eng or stamina builds. But guess we can keep expecting further improvements for further events.

                        Also yes the drop rates are being fixed as we speak. This is something that needs to be fixed before event starts. It penalizes a lot of players who have spent fp or will be forced to spend fp just to stand a chance with constant tweaks right in the middle of the event.

                          With time, the dev team will have a better idea of how to balance the drop rate. It just takes time, since it is something completely new to the game. Once they get it down pat, it will run as smoothly as something in the game 24/7.

                            Devs confirmed this? Drop Rates will be tweaked?

                              Actually the drop was tweaked within 12 hrs from the start of the last event Drach, if I'm not mistaken
