Anyone else notice that the sparks promotion levels changed with the new update? I was excited because I hit 20,500 sparks and I was finally going to be able to have 5 green crown characters for a spark run. Went to promote my last character and max promotion now costs 30,000 sparks. Checked my others and there are no new levels. What a bummer.
You’re right that they have changed the number of sparks to get a new promotion level.
Although I could only check this for a limited number of levels, I found:
0->5% 50 sparks (used to be 500)
35->40% 300 sparks (used to be 2100)
60->65% 600 sparks (used to be 2550)
100->105% 2000 sparks (used to be 2950)
120->125% 4000 sparks (used to be 4500)
135->140% 6000 sparks (used to be
If this tendency is continued in higher levels, it isn’t strange that you have to pay such a high amount of sparks.
The reason why they’ve changed is not clear to me.
The discrepancy between the number of sparks needed for a promotion at a low level and promotion at a high level has only been increased. I thought it was outrageous already, but as we see now, it could be worse.
May have to think twice before promoting Devastator then.
So it looks like they’re making it easier for low-level players, but more difficult for high-level players.deindiaan@deindiaan
I don’t see a problem here… It will cost me less spraks to promote my birds. Rather have a lot with lower promo then 5 with green. This way every event is more fun.
I wonder if it’s still the same cumulative number of Sparks to go from 0% to 210% (278,550), which wouldn’t be so bad.
Although it’s going to suck once they raise the maximum promotion again.
Using @moifirst’s data and data from my own TFs I ended up that the new amount of sparks to fully promote a TF is 288,400 sparks. But this is only an estimate.
But this makes a huge difference for the lower promoted TFs. Previously one needed about 20,000 sparks to promote a TF to silver star and now only 2,500 sparks. The promotion–% of a silver star times 4 is about the same than emerald crown.cuxdavide@davide
some good guy can update the promotion excel sheet? good for me that still have only 7 bots promoted at 105%
I expect this was in reply to the feedback related to “why don’t we use newer/different birds more often” … Most replies I saw indicated the lower promotion level reduced the score result for the newer birds.
Making it easier to promote at lower levels may encourage players to use different birds. But it may make no difference either – you play the birds you like, ones proven to be effective.Asen_77@asen
For Bronze crown promotion is total 950 sparks:
5% – 50 sparks
10% – 75 sparks
15% – 100 sparks
20% – 125 sparks
25% – 150 sparks
30% – 200 sparks
35% – 250 sparks
For the Silver crown from Bronze you need 3300 sparks:
40% – 300 sparks
45% – 350 sparks
50% – 400 sparks
55% – 450 sparks
60% – 500 sparks
65% – 600 sparks
70% – 700 sparks
Total amount of needed sparks from 0 to 70% ( Silver Crown ) is 4250 sparks.
75% – 800 sparks
80% – 900 sparks
85% – 1000 sparks
90% – 1250 sparks
95% – 1500 sparks
100% – 1750 sparks
105% – 2000 sparks
Total amount from Silver Crown to Gold Crown is 9200 sparks. From 0 to 105% ( Gold Crown ) is 13450 sparks.
i need 807 000 sparks to promote all my bots to Gold Star 😀 if @lewie4 confirmed that there won’t be any new level over Green Crown soon 😉
Well, I was too curious to see what all levels of promotion actually cost after this change.
So I wasted a large number of sparks to promote one bot to the max.
The result is:
The new amount of sparks that are needed are shown in red (just right of the old amounts, which are shown in black).
To my surprise, the total amount of sparks needed to promote a bot to a certain level of promotion is always less than it used to be, except for promotion to promotion level 210%, which costs a little bit more now.
Btw, the differences between the needed amount of sparks for promoting a lowly or moderately promoted bot vs. a highly promoted bot for just one level, are now (as said before) larger than they have been before.
If I’m understanding, the suggested process now is “Promote first, Upgrade after”
So before you can really see what the bot is worth you need to use sparks to increase promotion level and hope it’s not wasted.
For those of us who’ve spent years to upgrade our bots, too bad, it’ll cost more.
thanks a lot to moifirst and grimlockdown!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now is very easy to understand
This is bad.
Events are now going to be far more competitive than before.
There will be significantly more TFs promoted up to Gold, and even Purple or Red than there were before.
There used to be a huge score difference between #1 and #20 on the leaderboard.
Expect that difference to narrow significantly now.
The biggest difference between the old and the new sparks cumulative count is at ruby (red) star (about 42,500 sparks). With 42,500 sparks one can promote a TF (from zero) to amethyst (purple) crown!Lewie4@lewie4
@asen No plans to above green…for now!!
We hope the changes we’ve made will help the newer players compete, allow the older players to experiment with different characters and make the events more competitive!
