    I know people that rolled over 700+ and they have screenshots as proof. The glitch was active at least an hour. It was stopped around 10:10pm pdt. Donít be fooled anyone people got 30-40+ epics and tons of rares and uncommons they can use as fusion meat.

    I donít see how they can fix it though as said on discord. There are so many different ways you can combine and fuse LTs itís going to be hard to reverse and itís too late to roll back to a backup people have used resources and bough more FP.

    If someone got 2 new LTs and fused them into an old then rolled several more then combined them then fused away the old LT into a new LT the. Continued to combine.

    Then you have someone who had a copy of an LT in the crate and combined with copies they already had. Then used other LTs they already had to fuse up.

    Or someone fused 2 old LTs into a new LT the. Continues to roll additional copies of new LT and starts combining.

    Thatís the reason they shutdown the fusion and combine page. The scenarios just get to complex.

    Per Duke on discord they are going to be attempting to reverse all LTs including combines and fusions.

    I donít know how this is going to get sorted but they need to otherwise I for one and done with this game and quit for good.

    Being uk time zone I couldnít stay awake till the 3am finish of the event.

    Wake up this morning and find I placed 1050 so missed out on Orca which has pissed me off because I view this as a stupidly overpowered LT.

    But to find out people in different time zones who were awake got 1000s of Halloween crates and actually MANAGED to roll 100s of them has made me like Michael Douglas from falling down movie.

    People have fused /levelled and made it as hard as possible for UWE to unrangle this mess and if it canít be untangled then they have gained £1000s of real money advantage.

    God knows how they can sort this out effectively, wish Iíd never found this game back in 2013.

    This is what i figured. It was so huge that i thought they would do what they could to reverse it. If they can reverse it without resetting then no one can really complain. Maybe they could track other crate rolls and just give those people what they rolled. Seems like the easiest route would be to track the other crate rolls and just reset. After reset reward those people with whatever they rolled. Then no one can feel cheated out of a lucky roll.

    Re: Plethora of FREE crates

    I am pretty sure after every roll there is a phone-server synchronization. So, technically I think they can just see which Halloween rolls were and what lts were given. Its a tedious work, but it should be mostly reversible.

    I have mixed feeling about this. Sure, one compensation would be to just give everyone the amount of max rolled April's fool crates, but probably that would devalue the crates worth (at least for a while). On the other hand, I just really wish I had Chameleon 🙄 His power is unique

Just hope we are luckier in the future. Imagine if you got some of those free crates? Are u in the wrong that you were at the right place at the right time? For most of us, we snooze we loose.
    Dude, there are people that got off more than 5000 rolls and got more than 200 epics so, um yea, they need to fix this.

    So with this in mind I fail to see why there was a need to mention ĎApril Foolísí.
    Donít cover up, just admit that a colossal mistake occurred.

    This reaction wouldnít fly where I work.

    Re: Plethora of FREE crates

    Bit of a joke. If it was a planned April fool. They wouldnít attempt a server roll back. They would just do it.
    Be honest admit you messed up donít try to cover it up.

    Your comment was deleted by you. This happens accidentally sometimes.

    I will like to implore all to please control their emotions on this matter. (I rather people express themselves and their disappointment in a constructive manner than for anyone to give me reason to take care of accounts that flame forums PLEASE!). I am ANGRY myself, GAEA Staff are not happy about this mess either(this game is their bread and butter so they want things working right as well) but lets hope GAEA can remedy this. Cheers.

    Re: Plethora of FREE crates

    Are all the rewards done being issued or is there still people that haven't received them yet. Reason I ask is 4 of my accounts got their rewards but I have not received anything on the other two.

    Re: Plethora of FREE crates

    How much time and trouble was this problem to fix? But, it had to be done. However, a much smaller task wasn't done to remove double rewards from past event. What that says is that UE rewards spenders and won't fix those mistakes, but will fix mistakes that benefit smaller or non spending players.

    Please do a better job on the QA in the future. People take this game seriously and these problems hurt their confidence in the game.

    Honestly, I rolled about 150 crates before it stopped. I got a 2* phantom, moved my 2* Crimson to 4 and 3*Joaquin to 4, also. That was it. Nothing to change the balance of power in the game or make my 650 Titan noticeably stronger. What it actually did was make me realize how pointless crate rolls are. You'd think with 150 crates you could have beast toon. Reality was that it didn't make a huge difference in my toon. A better crate might have made more of a difference to Titan.

    Someone in my empire rolled 200; every 25th crate was an epic.
    Where's the 'R' in RNG?

    Re: Plethora of FREE crates

    Rolled about 130 crates and got 8 epics. What really caught my attention was i only got 2 kinds of comuns and uncomuns, Saw and Razor for comuns and Poppy and Victoria for uncomuns. Make me think If rng is a thing for real

    I think it was a completely different thing altogether. The double rewards thing got sent to the people that earned them, and so basically they got a little extra.
    The way this happened was you were sent the number of halloween crates equal to your rank in the event. So the guy that got 1st place was sent 1 halloween crate. So if they left it the way it was your effort was negatively rewarded. Which is totally unfair and makes no sense.

    The magnitude of the situation was also completely different. Some people opened hundreds of crates, got 30-40 epics etc. while others opened none at all. Whether it actually increased YOUR loadout very much doesnt matter at all because many others were greatly improved.

    These unearned rewards not only undermined future rewards but all past ones as well.

    As far as the levelling thing is concerned i think most people dont spend money to level up a lieutenant. They exercise patience and level it using naturally regenerating stamina and energy. But because there is a chance some people did, something needs to be done about it to make sure these people didnít get cheated out of something due to a glitch.

    So maybe set something up to instantly level a lieutenant. Create an item. Have a ďtraining groundĒ or something you can use to instantly level your right hand lieutenant. Something. While i would prefer refills they affect different toons in a myriad of ways. With some gaining 10k energy and others getting only 500.

    So whatever the devs do it should be fair to everyone.

    Re: Plethora of FREE crates

    Only thing that I can say good happened is I rolled over 700 crates and due to that I can verify that the RNG stated odds are true and I will never complain about my bad luck again.

    If anything people that rolled were able to verify that.

    Re: Plethora of FREE crates

    Itís their mistake. Why do we have to pay for their mistake. If you walk into some sort of stoRe and they charge you 10$ instead of 100. They are obligated to give u that item for 10 instead of 100 cuz itís their mistake. This is the same concept. They messed up and now they covering up by rolling back. They never gonna roll back everything cuz they are not that smart. Once again why are we paying for their mistake. It is what it is. If u benefitted from their mistake. They should suck it up and move on and try not to make similar mistake again. We paid so much into this game for some bullshit Lts time after time, it shouldnít be this way. If it was ALPHA who bought his account and didnít get banned cuz all the money he spends into the game. They looked the other way for his case. They should look the other way also for this one and move on.
