Two Deceptihogs are used (no Autobirds available) with energonicon. Cybertronians are the bonus squad. There are Tough Blocks.
If you’re gonna skip this one, will you do an experiment for me? Day 1 Moonracer I made 25 runs (no recharges, 285% promotion), 88,591 pts for 7th place and 1200 tokens. 6th place was so far ahead I would have needed an extra 60% promotion and 3 recharges to top him. Day 3 I was out of town, and made it back home 2 hours before the event ended. Made 6 runs, 17,432 pts for 3rd place and 1150 tokens. 19 fewer runs for only 50 tokens less. But after my first 4 I was in 1st. (Which never happens when I start at the open). Day 5 I tried it again and started halfway in, 12 runs, 25,085 pts for 2nd place and 1300 tokens.
If you’re not into this event, on one of the days will you make 4 runs as close as you can to the end of the event and post a screenshot of your leaderboard? I’m thinking that with 350% you can hit 15k, 1st place and take 1650 tokens. If you pulled it off everyday, that’s 10 gold crates and all sparks for 24 runs.The Dark Knight@elpapam
awhhh I am back… damn i was so tired couldn’t make a new event thread… Monday 3 September back to the office no time for gaming…
Ain’t gonna play this event as well i don’t see it to have enough courage to continue…
How were you able to earn 1,150 in third place in the last two hours of play?
I thought Rovio had reduced the Challenge prize levels if you start too late in the day (I forget the exact timing, it’s something like 3 hours before end of day?)
So instead of the regular 100-100-150-150 and so on, it’s more like 10-10-15-15 and so on.
Did Rovio change this again?
Or am I misremembering, and it was the Competition prizes that were lowered (but still, not sure how you would have been able to hit 1,150 if that were the case)?
I may opt to play. I tried a few rounds this morning when I woke up, and playing with a combination of UM and Dead End wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. But outside of the Spark Run, I’m sorely out of practice using either of them, and neither is amazing.
Did UM’s Acid Rounds get NERFed again? They seem even more ineffective in an Event run than in a Spark Run.
And yes, I know that the “Tough” blocks have been brought back for this Event.
But it seems like everything is taking longer to dissolve.
I think this entire Event has thrown people for a loop.
I started late (very late) – in Hour 13, so I’ll only have 15 natural runs for the day (finished 14 so far, one to go).
Right now I’m sitting in #3 spot with only 50K points.
I’ll probably drop several more places between now and the end of day, but I could still see myself finishing somewhere in the Top 6. If I can earn 1,300 points every day and without having to spend any gems on recharges, I’d be OK with that.
Finished the day in 3rd place with 55K points, and no recharges required.
No complaints here.
The point threshold prizes are not lowered either. You’ll just have to take my word for that until I can sceenshot it.
Correct, however still only enough time for 6 runs. Perhaps 2 hours is the threshold for a point devaluation? I don’t know, that’s the latest I’ve ever started. But if you’re not seriously going to play this event, it’d be cool if someone found out for sure. I’m just not willing to risk it on this one since I need 3 bots out of this squad still.
Can you clarify which is competition and which is challenge? Point threshold is challenge and final placing is competition?
In six runs, that would require a base score of 926/run if you have total +350% bonus.
That might be a stretch.
If it were a regular block day, could be doable if you’re lucky.
Definitely doable on Missiles day (with the right TF).
I don’t think you’re going to hit 40,000 in six runs on Flying Pig day (which is today), though.
