    hehe yet again I do your event and I am asking myself why... I am here to express my feelings about the Gamble thing :) First of all if you go to a regular casino your chance is smaller and you still win more often. I just played the most risky game with 20 coins for double chance like around 25 spins in a raw and I didnt win. It also had some amount of coins from other players who played. That isn't a 10% chance, you know? I am still affected from giving a part of my salery for this game in last event :D The whole gamble thing in every event you make is ................................................................... You should make the chances better or if you just want the players' money write on top that you HAVE to pay and you May still lose. Just say that only those who pay 100 euro per month are qualified for your SPECIAL event :)

    It just can't be that It is the third event in a raw that I am writing in here about the unworthy rewards you put and the fake chance you have to win

    Its like paying a ticket to see the Black Panther, buy pop corn, put your 3D glasses and then you understand that the black guys wanna kill all the while guys because they are all bad but its not racism somehow... Then you throw up and want your money back but nobody cares

    Hi!
    Grand Bridge has not priority of motivation, so as evebody use Aid Buttom, we will never get fp or the rest of its rewards. :(
    Is this problem going to be solved or Grand Bridge is totally useful? :?

    It seems a bit boring. I am a newish player, but pressing buttons and not winning anything after dozens of attempts is a bit dull. There are new buildings, but I would have to delete things to put them in. Nit very exciting...

    the grand bridge (lv 1 & 2) doesn't give FP

    the FP giving higher ones have priority

    Besides everything said... 680 Florins for the "big chest"?! I doubt small wallets will manage to max out their Grand Bridges

    I love it how I just spent 10,000 coins on chests and didn't get a single upgrade.

    Can you stop with these endless stupid gambling events please?

    Grand Bridge lv 2 gives supplies when motivated. As it has not priority of motivation, nobody does, so you lose these useful supplies. Designers wouldn´t make Grand Bridge lv 2 give supplies if it is impossible to get them.

    supplies never have priority

    with an unmotivated supply building you also lose supplies if they aren't doubled with an aid

    and it isn't impossible to get those supplies from the bridge. you only need more friends ;)
    (impossible is to get the 10 FP from a motivated Palace)

    but maybe you suggest it as idea in the idea subforum that supplies get also on the priority list


    current priority list:
    FP, 3 before 2 before 1 (finally they understood that 3 is better than 1)
    goods
    medals
    blueprints
    power (Hall of Fame)
    everything else (including supplies) is not on thát list

    Yet again... On the second Gamble option with coins - 30% chance. I hit it 8 times - 0 wins. That's not even 12% chance :D while its written as 15% without boost.
    Why do you even write the chance when it means nothing? Can someone tell me?

    30% chance means almost 1 in 3 times win not once every 15 times you know? Maths second grade...

    I'm not terribly excited about this Event either, the "major" prize is nice enough I suppose, but is not as good as the PoH. I am struggling to win coins, the chance on the bigger games is too small, so have started to just go for the 10 each time, at least I know I won't waste too many tickets that way. But to be honest, I don't need any of the prizes offered. My city is running smoothly, producing everything I need, why bust a gut trying to get the quests completed for stuff I don't need or even really want?

    That's not how probability works... -__-

    To give a 99% chance at 'winning' the 30% odds, you need to spend iirc 11 tickets. (the beta guys mathed it all out, though now it's buried somewhere within their monster event thread)
    And even then, you still have a 1%'ish chance of NOT winning, due to way probability & RNG's work.

    To win the 10% odds, iirc, it's 44 or 46 tickets to get it.


    And yes, Inno does seem to use a massively screwy RNG for their events, though it's still nowhere near the levels of your typical Fire Emblem RNG awfulness.
    (especially Fates... now THAT'S a god-awful rng if ever there was one!lol)

    I spent 5 minutes doing the Carnival thing in one of my cities and when I saw how badly stacked the odds are against the player I quit...................and I haven't clicked on a Carnival icon since. This event is definitely a waste of time and resources, IMO.

    Thanks, Test Ament! :)
    Now I realise I must not put Grand Bridge lvl 2 in my city. :(

    I know. What I'm about to say has been said for years, will be ignored, and really doesn't address the REAL topic that numerous posters across numerous sites on the InterWebs love to whine, have cheese with their whine, and be seen enjoying their whine (the Elf included of course). But I'm going to say it anyway...

    If you -- [please choose no more than 3 (three) items]:

    a. -- don't like this events just in general;
    b. -- don't believe these events are run fairly;
    c. -- believe that, ultimately they are meant as a cash grab by Inno;
    d. -- believe that "gambling" is immoral and are offended by this event;
    e. -- are a jaded "old hand" and are just tired of FoE in the main;
    f. -- are just a grouchy person in general and/or hate new things; and/or
    g. -- dislike carnivals because as a child you were frightened once in Venice by all the masks;

    then, as the consumer that you are, do the most powerful thing you can do... don't join in the event.

    Simple, eh?

    Elf.

    Thanks elfish now that is worth logging in for :)

    c & d for me

    Ultimately, it's a business and they have wages to pay :)

    Looks extremely likely that the Grand Canal will sit in inventory until I have the 6 upgrades (so maybe next year, assuming that they continue with this 'gambling' theme in the future).

    Yep, I'm giving this one a big miss as well as several others in the guild. Just not worth it. I tried going for the big chest and kept getting 0 wins. Tried the middle - 0 wins. So I'll plug along with the 100% win thing where you get 10 tokens (or whatever they are) but only if I can be bothered. There's nothing in the prizes that seem worth it.
