    Here's a report from 2014, when it was possible for the player to see his pre-allocated reward before he even got round to pressing the Stop button. https://forum.en.forgeofempires.com...14-discussion-thread.27072/page-6#post-152295
    And the same from 2013, when it was even more obvious: https://forum.en.forgeofempires.com...the-summer-event-is-rigged.22778/#post-106995
    How much evidence is enough to demonstrate that pressing the button at a given moment doesn't actually affect the outcome? I'm getting the impression that the answer is that there can never be enough, because it has become an article of faith to be defended at all costs; well, that doesn't hurt anyone else, but it won't win anything extra on the wheel for the next event...

    There will never be enough evidence, cause he can make the wheel stop where he wants. He is gifted.

    The moment he gets stuck in an argument you get the master response.

    Da!!

    After that we start all over again. It's like a wheel you can stop. In the end, it always ends on the Da!! spot.

    How much more proof do you need?

    how about an idea for next year
    turn animation off: and after spin it jumps directly to the prize

    because the only thing that the rotating wheel and pressing stop does: it wastes time

    Pedro would still claim it stops where he wants. He has this super secret strategy.

    Hey chaps,

    Sorry for ignoring this, I wanted to check a couple of things.

    The stop button on the wheel is for visual effect alone. Your prize is determined when you click "spin", and clicking "stop" does nothing aside from stop the animation quickly. Any assertion that clicking the stop button has an impact on your win is unfortunately merely a post hoc fallacy.

    Thanks,
    Richard

    You press spin and when the Sunken treasure goes over the pointer ...................................................
    and it stops on the Sunken Treasure, 1 place before or after, or 2 out either way, all depending how good your reflexes are and that you pressed the stop button at the exact time it went over the pointer.
    The missing info is the key and my the secret :)
    Hahaha
    PS. If the wheel goes bonkers and starts going backwards then there is nothing you can do but to get a palm tree.

    Thanks for your response. Unfortunately you're mistaken. You can not influence the outcome of the spin. It is decided what prize you will win the moment you click spin.

    Thanks for the explicit confirmation for future reference, Sovereign.
    I'm sure this question will come up again next year ;-)

    Ok, off topic—- so your “only” reward is dealing with us lovely, talented, and utterly charming forum members and our escapades on the threads!!

    Lord, I would run screaming! J/K

    Thank you, BTW

    You gambled every time you spun the wheel.

    You must have incredible reflexes that you can stop something after it has already stopped.

    How does it feel now knowing that al this time you have been watching and stopping a wheel you couldn't stop?

    So your secret recipe stops the wheel on — what — one of five spaces out of a total of twelve?

    You realize that you have about a 40% chance of it “stopping on the space, one next to it, or two out either way”?

    I am sure that looks impressive to you, but it’s simple statistical probability, Pedro.

    Look Macunaina, I have a way of stopping the wheel on the right spot or close to it ( believe it or not ), I've been over it over and over, to have the same negative members always saying it's impossible, creating chaos and complete madness in this thread so sorry bud I'm not going to elaborate on it anymore.

    Not only members confirmed that it is false, people from FoE team confirmed it us false.
    Player also gave proofs that take theory that you can stop the wheel where you want down.
    If your theory was correct, you would have won much more golden prizes.
