The new way of contributing to other's GBs by entering the exact amount is good. but on a few occasions now I have entered an amount and collided with another player and lost hundreds of f
Thanks CV that explains it except that I thought the owner doesn't get any reward (other than the GB itself) so what does he collect? I thought whoever levels it gets nothing and as the owner gets no rewards anyway, he might as well be the one who levels it. So that's not the case then?Whoever levels it makes no difference the people in the top 5 spots get the rewards.
The point of owner levelling is so they can collect, level and immediately collect again. Other people levelling it stops this and puts gb out of sync with the rest
You are quite correct in that I didnt understand at all! It's quite new to me to hear about collecting from a GB - it's something I never thought of and now it makes perfect sense! . The fog has lifted, the light went on! Thanks for taking the time to explain and I had to search the Forum to find this out.I think you may have misunderstood.
ie. A cape gives fp's let's say 20. It's 10minutes from collection time and only 1 fp from leveling.
If the owner waits 10 minutes, he can collect 20 fp's, spend 1 fp to level and collect 21 fp's in 1 second.
However if someone else levels it before the 10 minutes is up or if he levels it after the 10 minutes is up, but before the owner collects the 20 fp, the owner will only collect 21 fp's
So it's better to let the owner level his GB unless of course you wish to mess up the double-collect as we call it. This is true for all GB's that have some kind of output that is collectable, such as Traz, CdM, and so forth.
I rushed off to see in practice what you explained. I hadn't checked on the collection time of any of my (few) GBs and now I see the timer that shows when collection is due. I notice that not all GBs give something tangible like fps, coins, supplies or medals like Zeus for instance. So could any member level that GB without causing the owner a problem?You are quite correct in that I didnt understand at all!

I've had it a couple of times, the gb suddenly levels and when you go and look there are 2 of you both with the same donation (usually when taking spots at 1.9) sometimes I've been on top other times I've lost out.How would you know the person did that? Surely you would only see the result of your adding to the GB?
