I always pay the first bounty. Always, even if the pig is on floor 2. It’s the 2nd and 3rd pigs that matter to me. So many times I get a nice little run before that 2nd pig. If I don’t, then take the video rather than pay the 50 gems. But I’ll gladly risk that first 20 gems for those days I get a good run.
The same applies to the 2nd and 3rd pigs, but I’m starting to get stingy at that point, so I’d better be up there where the rewards are starting to get better.
I understand that if you don’t have a fair stash of gems saved up, you might be a lot more cautious. I have a decent supply and never use them except in mebc and tof, or arena in exceptional situations.Flinx@flinx
I’ve got over 10,000 gems banked up so could well afford to pay the 20 to continue, but when I see a pig on the second floor day after day it sours me on the whole game. Give me a pig on floor 3 just for a change of scenery and maybe then I’ll get up off a few of my shekels and continue.
A pig on floor 2 should be an automatic quit for anyone. Don’t watch the video or spend gems and give Rovio any $$$. I actually wouldn’t mind the occasional pig on floor 2, but it occurs far too often to be random chance. Given there are 4 cards, a pig should appear roughly 25% of the time, not the 60% or more it generally does.
Today I thought I was finally going to have a great run. No pigs until floor 16, and had already earned 70 gems so that would cover two continues. Well, it didn’t go the way I was hoping. Hit a pig on 16, paid gems, pig on 17, paid gems, pig on 18, watched the video, and quit.Twisted Lemon@oliverfrancis
Wow…3 pigs in a row is ludicrous, especially after you’ve forked over gems to keep going. I think we know what would’ve been waiting for you on floor 19.
Without a doubt there was another pig on 19, and a 100% chance I would have hit it.Twisted Lemon@oliverfrancis
Some players just don’t have the continue video in which case I would straight out not bother playing the ToF unless you’re willing/fine with spending gems for continues. With the video you always know that you have the option to leave for free and keep what you have; personally I 100% wouldn’t play without it, as having the video is a secure and guaranteed free exit.
Also I’ve heard that if you’ve spend money on the game (e.g buying the gem letter) then apparently that removes most/all the video options from the game. I haven’t spent a cent on this game and won’t ever be doing so, not when there’s reports of users being having in-game features removed like that.
I got burned today but it was my own stupid fault. Three pigs in a row, floors 2-3-4. No video option. It turned out my internet connection went down briefly, so no video option. When I reconnected it came back, but I had already wasted 70 gems by then.
Reminder to self: check the connection first.hatlad@hatlad43
Hey I got lucky reaching level 33 just yesterday, followed Lemon’s advice. But then one piggy pops out at 2nd level today. I reckon tomorrow, the pig will come out as soon as level 3. As it used to, before the lvl 33 thing.
Sometimes they’ll give you a couple of good runs when there’s a hat event going on. For me it’s usually toward the end.
I always get a good run (usually 2 great days and one okay) right before a hat adventure so for the next 10 days all I get is pigs, pigs, and more pigs on 2-4. I was amazed I even got Red’s hat. Had I not gotten gems on floors 1 and 2, which paid for the pig on 3, and the video got me past the pig on 4, I would once again be looking at another hat adventure where I get zero hats.Flinx@flinx
I just came out of the tower and ya know what? screw it. Scratch off lottery tickets have better odds.
Since I have a ton of gems hoarded away I decided to have a go at it. Setting my limit at 5,000 gems plus the 60 gem admission fee I ventured inside to get started. First floor, 14 feathers. Oh yay. Floor 2 is where the pig lives of course, as is Floor 3. No big deal right? Pay the man and carry on.
Long story short, it cost me 780 gems to just get to the 16th floor, with 38 gems, 7 spells, 114 feathers and 40 black pearls as the prize bank. I gave up and bailed out.Nikie@nikie
Since the last update the tof crashes while I’m playing. I didn’t use the video option because it used to crash after the video’s. Lost 140 gems this last two days and didn’t get the winnings. (Odd: the gems you pay to continue are distracted immediately, but what your winnings were is not registered and get lost when the game crashes again)Takayasu@takayasu
Sadly, I have been kicked out of the Tower of Misfortune for two days in a row. Both times during the watching free video portion. This has not happened for a long time, so getting it on consecutive days is frustrating. Especially since I paid some gems to get to around level 30 on both days. Duh.
