    That's also assuming you don't sleep more than 5 hours at a time therefore losing tokens due to "overflow". In which case, it will be more $$$
    Yeah just corrected it. Had meant to write $$ not fp. Doh!!

      Think it's about 130 odd $$ if all tokens are used for wins.
      So true. Sad that you must pay to win the "participation" reward

            I play a number of alts and mini's, just getting some squishy demo. I can't keep them all participating - it just takes too long. I think that the event is just fine - it's my own choices that have me twisted in knots.

            Getting 5000 casings would get you some sweet swag - for free.
            Just a bit analytical.

              It's 328.

              Yeah free stuff don't complain, take a vacation from your job, and pay someone to do event while you sleep.

              I hit 1.2k by this time I post this.

                Re: How much FP needed to achieve participation prize

                I don't know why folks try to justify the $ we have to spend on this game, during the events. Sure the Event Lt. wouldn't be special if everyone had it but he/she should still be obtainable if we log onto the game a dozen times a day. According to the math above, you have to lose sleep and get nothing but wins in order to achieve 10k in the participation bracket. This is the only feasible way for most to obtain the Event LT without spending like crazy, the participation tier. But nope! We can play the game till our hearts content and win all of our battles but that still wouldn't give us enough points to get the Event LT it wouldn't even be enough for the runner-up Epic - Baron. (And just to point out he was offered last year around this time as a runner-up as well during the Holiday event)

                All these gear prizes for the ranked tiers are pretty much worthless without Midas, most of that gear will probably be for him. Even if its not, is 2-3 pieces of gear really worth it?

                The only reason I can see for people defending this model is because there used to it. The first event set the standard with Reaper and now everyone is used to, and even prepares for, spending like crazy when event time comes up. Imo, that's bullspit. People should really change there standards and expectations when it comes to these events, otherwise, unless you're willing to fork out some serious dough, you'll never have one of the top prizes.

                I really don't want to come off as ungrateful because yes PA has given a way for the common folk to gain more prizes. The only issue is that you still have to spend $ in order to rank high enough for the Event Unique items. There trying to turn the "non-spenders" into people who spend during the events. There psyching us out! Yes, please participate in spending like the rest of the game! Muwhahahahhahaha

                Also, this whole defense of "Well you get free stuff! FREE!" is ridiculous. Why should 95% of the players receive the same crap we get everyday when the big spenders get all the goodies?

                  Re: How much FP needed to achieve participation prize

                  Using the 918 favor calculated with the initial post, I decided to see how this stacks up to crates. (note that the 918 is very conservative and accounts for using every possible stamina in the event and winning all fights. I have seen other people in this thread guess as high as 1600 fp to account for some loss and losing stamina due to 8 hrs of sleeping)

                  Since crates cost 80 fp for 3, then the number of three crate rolls is 918/80=11.475. Round down to 11. 11x3=33 leuntenants

                  also, 11*80=880. 918-880=38. So you can get 1 more LT with a single crate. Therefore, this is equal to 34 LT create rolls and 8 fp left over.


                  This means you can get 34 LTs for the same price as it takes to get all participation awards (assuming you used every possible generated stamina from the event). But you get 3 crate roll vouchers from the participation awards, so we will subtract that for comparison to 31 Rolls.

                  Assuming 31 LT rolls, you would estimate that the drops be:

                  Epic: 1.55
                  Rare: 3.1
                  Uncommon: 9.3
                  Common: 17.05

                  We will subtract the two Epics and rare that would be obtained from the event, so...

                  Epic: -0.45 (have a 45%change to get one less epic out of the deal even though you will probably get at least one)
                  Rare: 2.1
                  Uncommon: 9.3
                  Common: 17.05

                  This means that that is compared to the 1 energy drink, 3 stam drinks, and 10 paid scratches from participation.

                  So whether or not to pay the fp to get the participation awards is entirely dependant on if you think the 4 drinks, 45% chance to get another Epic, and the 10 scratchers is better than the estimated 17 common LTs, 9 uncommon LTs, and 2 rare LTs.
