You just do what you want and i do mine. I know there's a pattern And if you don't want to share, then fine.It's not that I don't want to help. But how do you think it will help more now? The pattern is known.
Or do you really believe they don't have RNG selecting 'randomly' from the two possible quests, but that it really follows a set pattern, which is the same for everyone? I highly doubt that. That is much more work than just letting an RNG randomly select quests in a somewhat set order (A1 or A2, then B1 or B2, then C1 or C2, etc).
I'm not trying to be non-cooperative But since the data I collected comes from multiple players, it's not only up to me to decide to share the data. I'll see what I can do.You just do what you want and i do mine. I know there's a pattern And if you don't want to share, then fine.
Thank you for thatI'm not trying to be non-cooperative But since the data I collected comes from multiple players, it's not only up to me to decide to share the data. I'll see what I can do.
We all wholeheartedly agree! There is a (recent) thread in this forum that addresses this issue:thanks for your read and hope this unfair issue will be fixed ASAP.
This post in its entirety pretty much sums up my feelings about the event too.Since I stopped doing the quests, this is my final feedback about the event. This time we had random, endless quests. Of course, some of the quests were meant to stop you somewhere. For me, those were the "complete 2 provinces" quests, but there are others too, like "gain vision vapor" and "gain spell fragments" for low level MA, or "upgrade 2 buildings to level 16+" for early chapters. So it's not really endless, but you have to give up at some point in mid-event which deprives you of the feeling of success. The point of giving up can be sooner or later, depending on how lucky you are in the random quest lottery.
The random quest system introduces another level of randomness. It was announced that this system would provide equal difficulty for everyone, but this is clearly not the case. There have not been spoilers this time, no planning ahead - simply clutter your city with level 1 manufactories - the more the better, add some workshops and call this a strategy... just boring.
The new quest system made this event the least satisfying one for me.
On the other hand, I got many useful prizes, so sitting out the events is not a viable solution for me. I will be doing them, but the fun has drained.
Apparently you just didn't look for the spoilers because they were there! Both ElvenGems website, Platinum Leaf on FB and the (beta)forum(s) have given lots of spoilers. I was able to plan ahead and prep most things for the first couple of quest rotations in advance. You of course never really knew which quest exactly was coming, but you had a small list of options what the quests could be and could plan accordingly to have some of those prepared. I must say I was in luck that I was in between chapters, that helped a lot. My other city was stuck in a chapter the first 1/3 of the event, which meant a major delay. However, I did manage to catch up there eventually...There have not been spoilers this time, no planning ahead - simply clutter your city with level 1 manufactories - the more the better, add some workshops and call this a strategy... just boring.
Well, as i'm a cater/negotiator i have come to like the 28 corals a great deal. The 26 is good for the 20 KP instant limit, gathering KP's for the 30 KP and 40 KP quest.True, if you have coral to take shells, that is a very good option. I have in fact used that a couple times. Would rather use the 85 shell for that though, would rather not click the 28 (or the 26 even)
Good Lord! Nearly 4 fully evolved Mermaids?!?!So although the 2 provinces quest has finally led me to a halt, I have enjoyed the event very much so far, I've managed to get 4 Mermaids and am currently working on the last chain of pearls to get the last artifact to upgrade all 4 Mermaids to stage 10 (working on the 8th artifact for the 3rd mermaid in my other city that got delayed by being stuck in a chapter).
17+1+17+1+17+1+16 = 70 Grand Prizes. Estimating from Optimum Chest Strategy, that would have required about 30,000 corals.This doesn't take away that I have some objections, but they are mainly balance-related. This event has pushed me to complete >10% of all provinces I have ever completed since I started playing in January of 2016. That is insane. Especially as Inno wants us to slow down on the scouting :O
This is mostly due to the 'Complete 2 provinces' quest, since >60% of that set (complete 2 provs vs spend 40 kp in an AW) for me turned out to be 'complete 2 provinces'.
Don't forget free corals. For e.g. I found the Phoenix event easier than most because I had a crazy run of good luck picking up 500 corals from the 142 chest. I think I hit it 5 times in a session, which made a big difference.That would be 312.5 64-coral quests, for a total of 448 quests. 312.5 64's would be 31 rounds of the 10 quest cycle. 50/50 each pass would be 15 "Complete 2 Provinces" in the 64's, for 30 Provinces. And that's not counting Encounters, or Provinces and encounters in the first 136 quests. Does this approximate your experience?
Yeah I'd imagine a lot of time instants to get all the scouting done. I decided not to do that as I was only playing this event to get the time instants. When I found myself using some of them to do more quests I had to check myself because it was defeating the object.Use corals to get time instants; scout like a madman; quest like a madman
Rinse, repeat. Doing exactly that which Inno said we shouldn't do; scout and complete.
