    Out of all the players those that handled their florins wisely going for the 100% chance instead of blowing it on the 5% chance that's where I'd expect meaningful feedback from in terms of whether it's possible to complete or needs adjusting.

    If there weren't moaning from the carnival event I'd be surprised. By its very nature it's the only event I can think of that'd allow a player to be able to complete the event and gamble away all the event currency required to obtain the main prize. Of course that'd be the players choice if they did so, but it's a lot more alluring to think of winning a 1000 florin pot at 5% then the 10 at 100% no matter how illogical a 5% chance may be.

    You obviously do not understand statistics.
    5*1000/100 = 50
    100*10/100 = 10
    So your "wisdom" costs you 40 florins per ticket.

    correct
    if the pot is 1000 then go for it ;)

    btw if you don't use double chance with 1000 that will cost you another 30 florins per ticket
    10% of 1000 = 100
    - 20 for double chance = 80


    and the wisdom of other costs them florin

    to get to 1000 it need to start with 100
    and 5% of 100 is 5 the half of 100% of 10

    :lol:

    The Florins that can be won by playing the 3 games are not limited to the approximately 75 players in your neighbourhood, this time you are up against EVERY PLAYER in your world.

    No you aren't.
    Obviously they are likely to get it after 20 attempts on average wich means an average pot of 400 florins, that's 20 florins/ticket.

    I am NOT referring to how many attempts are needed to win a set amount of Florins.
    In the 2018 Carnival Event there was a prize awarded every 3 days for the person that collected the largest Game Pot during that 3 day period, that was awarded on a Neighbourhood basis (A neighbourhood normally starts with 75 players), so you were only trying to collect the Game Pots against other players in your Neighbourhood.
    In the 2019 Carnival Event the Game Pots are not limited to the players in your Neighbourhood. The Game Pots are Worldwide.
    I know this as I saw a player than was NOT in my neighbourhood win the Boat Race.

    You play for florins against your neighbourhood.
    You spend those florins & compete in the leagues vs. the entire server.

    There is (as of beta) NO 3-day-prize cycle this year. (because they've been replaced by the leagues.:P )

    I understand just fine. 5% only gives more if you happen to (a) get it high enough (b) don't run out of tickets (c) don't get sniped

    If you're only using free tickets you're not likely to have all three of those conditions in your favour. You'd need to save up enough tickets that winning the pot will be greater then your losses for holding those tickets instead of getting the hourly regeneration and spending. Because if you don't stockpile tickets before betting you're more likely to lose everything and be unable to stop another player coming along and taking the pot then you are to win with a limited amount of tickets at 5%.

    If I run out of tickets once it's no problem. I'll probably win next time. Or even later. I don't need THAT peculiar pot. Any large pot will do.

    If the Carnival Games are only against our NEIGHBOURS. Can someone please explain to me why a pot of over 2000 florins was won by someone who was NOT within the BETA NEIGHBOURHOOD I was in at the time of the Carnival Test?
    I know that the player who won the pot was not a Neighbour as I went looking for them within the NEIGHBOURHOOD Players, to see if I was going to congratulate them or being upset about seeing such a large pot won just seconds before I was about to try and win it, do something less honourable.
    Could there really have been a glitch on the BETA SERVER to allow this?

    You'll need to ask the beta mod's or send a ticket

    Please explain. Should I raise a ticket for a sarcastic comment made about an event that is concluded on the Beta Server. I have provided feedback on what actually happened during game play, unfortunately some people have been rather **** and quoted from the Beta Forum Event page or tried to belittle my comments because it does not fit in with their views.
    I think that instead of talking about events maybe they should spend that time playing the game, then they would not need to hope that the prizes that they did not get in previous events, will come back as special prizes in subsequent events.

    You experienced a bug on the beta. They can not help you with that here. It is a simple as that.

    I will not go for anything big during this event,only for Reno kits for when I decide to push further in eras. This set is just not worth it.

    Depends on what you want. I am after reno kits as well as watchers however a set or two would make good replacements for TF's.

    I got couple of TFs sitting in inventory. Also, having many SoKs that will be, from now on, replaced by higher FPs efficiency buildings to save up limited HMA city space.

    This new set is really annoying...
    It gives ever-so-slightly more fps & goods vs. the Lv2 cherry garden set, but gives absolute crap for atk + def% boosts (especially the Lv2 buildings, which barely gain a boost at all vs. the Lv1's!)

    Honestly, the only thing I really *want* out of this event?
    The new 'Fire Mask' avatar 'cause it looks freaking awesome!lol.
