Next time we have an event where we can earn pearls, coins, diamonds, cow patties or whatever arbitrary collectible item WG chooses for us to earn and buy prizes with, temporarily up the drop rate for supercontainers and give them a significant chance to drop said pearls, coins, diamonds or cow patties.

 

This event would be spiced up if you had a realistic chance of getting, say, 50 or 100 coins on the drop of an SC.

SCs are rare enough as is, but I suppose I'm more likely to get one of those than a top 100 award.

 

I just want the contest to be achievable with less than 4 hours a day of playing.

The supercontainer idea just puts our success in the hands of RNGesus; I would rather have it on a skill base that is a little more achievable than this Elements event.

Depends how they balance it. If they balance the requirements and earn rate as 'normal' without taking the chance for an SC drop into account, any SC drop will just be a free bonus. If they balance it with the SC drop rate in mind and lower the regular earn rate, you'd have a very valid concern.

Maybe they could give us a special container with a 10% rate and 20 coins or something. Factor it in with what you can earn.

I voted yes, but I haven't seen a SC since February despite regularly earning my crates. I doubt I would see one in the next three weeks.

X Coins for every time you top the XP chart of your team? Skill based, hard enough to achieve a couple of coins, or perhaps a mission (top xp 5 times = 10 coins?)

You wont be grinding a Kamikaze R with just that but at least it'd help.

Yarp! Gotta go with The Hound lol.

 

To add context, I don't stand a snowballs chance of getting anywhere near the Kami R, but come on, I can get me enough for one of the upgrades. Can't grumble about work keeping me away, as that's what gives me my money; so I view what is in reach and shout mine..mine..mine!

This or put a couple of not too easy missions up that reward the short term currency.

I voted no because it would further increase the actual requirements to win top prizes.  Also, players that aren't pursuing the special events would be getting a near-worthless supercontainer.

I'd say nay, I don't want it changed to where I have to win the rng lottery to complete an event, I'd prefer they just make it more realistically doable like the old pearls Kami R event back when.

Honestly, I'd rather they just structure events like this to be doable in three weeks if you go at it like a madman, but make the event last four weeks so those of us with less free time can earn the ship too. 

 

Getting it a week early should be enough of a reward for the hardcore, and adding one week isn't going to mean that everyone earns it. Just lowers bar a little bit closer to the realm of sanity for working folks.
