    Very disappointed.

    Please change this.

    U should be able to get the event lieutenant if u are in rank 7 when event finishes. Not only from casings.

    How else is this a pvp event?

    Looking back this has been the only event where bsi accounts doesnt have to pay a small fortune to get the event lt.
    Like the last few seasons Rank 1000 to 301 is Battle Rank 7. 300 to 1 is 8

    You will need to buy between 4200 and 5500 more tokens. 30 tokens at 10 favor points is between 1400 and 1800 favor points.

    This seems crazy to me, so someone please check my math. Two VIPs for max reward sounds too high. I went through the math last event and it was one VIP.
    with a good toon that wins and can keep a good rank and get free token packs each day u are able to collect abou 11k bullets and then only need 14k more which based on my calc is 1555 fp

    Re: Battle Royale: Lethal Virus

    My STRONG feeling is that reward improves as your empire does better. Just look at all of the blanks. My guess is that is the STARTING gift not the finishing one.

    Duke: ur right. my suggestion is switch your toons to a active empire for getting more free rewards.

    Re: Battle Royale: Lethal Virus

    If I had to take a guess, think of MMB in terms of the group rewards.

    yes but thing about the small empiers or lil guys, they may be able to put up the 5k casings but even if all active and did 5k u would need 5000 guys to do 5k casings just for the empire to get 1 reward, i dont see anyone getting much other than the top few empires that all will spend

    12 tokens an hour 240 hours plus your starting batch let's call it 3000 tokens. At an 80% win rate (which is horrible because you choose your targets) generates 7200 bullets. The 20% in losses generates 1200 bullets or 9400 in total in free play. 30 actives in the empire and you easilyit that number.

    Now, in a lazy inactive empire....MOVE before the event starts. I am moving the Super LSI because I have 5 actives in the empire. Merge your empire and DO NOT hold hard and fast to its mine or nothing because your team rewards are based on it.

    Get your buddies to move also. Trust me, the dead weight will get booted for active players.

    Re: Battle Royale: Lethal Virus

    50 actives getting 5k to get first reward is too high. Cut that to 50k for the first reward, then go up 50k from there.

    I know many if not most of the players appreciate the group aspect, but that seems unreasonable for all but maybe 150 empires.

    I know. But u were rewarded a copy of the event lt when rank 7. And an other one for finishing top 1000. Adding up to a two star. A fair reward for bsi compared to how much money a bsi must spend on all other events (not eve).

    But. This particular event lt is good already at one star. But to be seated it still must be at a higher level, stats wise.

    So. I wanted to get 1 from rank 7. 1 from top 1000. And 1 from casings. Then fuse up one and make a 3*.

    Now that seems like far too expensive and I'm not happy with the change.

    If others are then so be it. I cant answer to that. Just expressing my thoughts about it.

    But a very good event epic indeed

    Almost like event was made to make Empires kick dead weight and get active players (#Tinfoilhat). Depending on rewards, i might have to ask Uncle Rick to let me in for a while.

    Re: Battle Royale: Lethal Virus

    Perhaps maybe the drop rate for casing was increased slightly? If that happened I could see the 11k being a bit more trivial than in past events and the group goals a bit more attainable.

    I will reserve judgment until after it starts to see how good/bad this is.

    The event LT *does* have players buzzing from what I am reading/hearing. That's always a good start.

    Let me quote Jimmy Buffet and Alan Jackson.... it's 5:00 SOMEWHERE.

    My war times are 4:00 and 10:00. Getting up early one day won't kill anyone but whenever it starts someone is getting screwed.

    Re: Battle Royale: Lethal Virus

    I'm not sure where I'm wrong but I'm not getting anywhere near 1,400 FP needed to get 25,000 casings for this event.

    According to my math, 182 FP will be needed to achieve 25,000 casings. Here's my math someone double check me. Please!

    25,000 casings needed/3 casings per win (assuming 100% of attacks are wins) = 8,333.33 event STA required (8,334 from here on out)
    Event STA earned ONLY via timers: 240 hours/5 *(3) minutes per Event STA = 2,880 *(4,800) Event STA

    8,334 needed minus 2,880 *(4,800) generated = 5,454 *(3,534) Event STA needed via refill only

    5,454 *(3,534) needed @ 30 per 10 FP = 182 *(118) FP needed

    *Math adjusted for 3 minute timers

    Thanks in advance for correcting my maths. :-)

    Re: Battle Royale: Lethal Virus

    😆😆😆 So if you have a "Perfect" record in this event, it should cost no more than 182 *(118) additional FPs... 🎉WOOT WOOT🎉 I guess 😁

    Move your decimal to the left one digit. 140 - 180 FP is definitely in the ballpark. Could be 225 FP depending your win/loss ratio.

    You need additional 5454 shots.
    5454 divided by 30 shots per refill = 181 refills
    At 10 fp per refill it is 1810 fp.

    But at this price you can say that you get the new event lt plus 2 additional epics (King + Exterminator). One of them being even an event lt, although not a loved one.

    180 FP is 18 refills.

    You get 18 refills for 180FP so:

    18 * 30 event stamina= 540 event stamina
    540 event stamina * 3 bullets each= 1,620 bullets

    Not even remotely close.

    BTW, remember that all the math being done is assuming that you use ALL of your generated tokens/stamina which basically means staying up 24/7 for 240 hours straight or at best taking 89 minute max naps. That is some hardcore devotion to anyone who pulls it off. That's assuming a 3 minute regen rate which I see some people using, I see others using 5. If it's 5 minutes then you can take a longer nap but you have to spend considerably more to get event LT.

    For those of us that have to function and require normal sleep to do that, you can expect to get between 5-6K bullets from the free stamina and 90 bullets per refill assuming a 100% win rate.

    Re: Battle Royale: Lethal Virus

    1 active or 80... Without spenders its still 1+2+3 scratches or 1 scratch and 2 refills as empire rewards, so who cares...

    Last event daily rewards had 12hrs time shift to get 10 dailies in 10 days. Now announced same time as start/finish time.

    Top 300 - Top 1000 is Rank 7. You get only one event Lt for that. If you are lucky and hit 1000th place then you will get another event Lt.

    Re: Battle Royale: Lethal Virus

    Let's do it this way.

    240 hrs x 20 per hour= 4800 STA
    330 tokens will be 17.1 per hr btw.

    4800+90 to start is almost 4900

    4900 STA *3 casings per Stam= 14,400 casings possible if you never lose, but battle list gets harder the more you win.

    10600 casings/90 per refill= 117 refills

    That's with 100% win ratio.

    At 80% it goes to 155 refills. My original 180 refills was based on 2.5 casings per stamina used or 50/50 win percentage.

    If you are strong enough to maintain legend rank every day you could win 27 refills (can't win refill at the end of the event so it's 9 days) Depends on if the refill is 30 or 90, you could earn between 2400 and 7.2k more casings, but only for legend tier.

    But even those players will still need to buy 37 refills. 25000-14400-7200=3400 casings needed.

    This is expensive event if you want the 25k reward.
