8/20/2015 Sniper Global Event

bradr752bradr752 Senior MemberRegistered Users 1,962 Posts
While Glu's failure to bother to offer Day 3 to the League Events on the IOS platform gives rise to concerns about their commitment to the upcoming Global as well as the game as a whole, here is what we can anticipate if things go as planned:

Tomorrow's Global should be for a 13.5 Sniper. Normally they would add one or more weapons to the listings in the Store the day before the Event, but this week they have not. There are, however, two weapons already listed in the Store Sniper offerings, both listed as parts only, that are potential Global prize candidates:

Listed in the store, as parts only, are the Antelope, 13.5 614K/942K, which was the prize in the abortive League event, as well as the Giraffe, 13.5, 512K/840K. Neither would seem to justify the gaming frenzy that will undoubtedly accompany their being named as prizes on the Global platform. The Rhino, 13.0 387K/737K recently available for game $ seems like a bargain in comparison. Interestingly the Spear, 14.0, 819K/1.47M is no longer listed in the Mystery Box, so Glu may have other plans for it as well.

Time will tell what is actually offered tomorrow, or whether Glu will even bother to field the Global at all.

    I guess this is the end for you eh UNHAPPY? Now did you tap the DELETE button or not?

    "Deleting "ContractKiller" will also delete all of its data." ... is obviously the final solution. Nothing ever changes with GLU, I know and I absolutely understand your decision (again). I've tried to help players in any way I can and I hope I was of assistance to you as well.

    Live Long and Prosper ...

    AMAZON ANDROID GLOBAL EVENT is running, too. Saying Android doesn't mean Google is exclusive!

    Pet pieve; too many are using the hardware to describe the software/servers running it. I understand on iOS, it's practically synonymous. But, not so with Android. It's bad enough to be the orphan outcast to be shunned by some of you guys, but a lot of us Amazon guys play hard, too!

    Have you had coffee yet? I use the term "Google Android" to distinguish it from "Amazon Android" ... clearly Angels has gotten into your head LMAO

    By the way ... right now Amazon players are the only ones being rewarded for all of their efforts, so HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH my friend ... for you have been vindicated !!!

    I've deleted the game twice, and after reinstalling (on android, at least), when logging in with the same google play account, all the progress is restored.

    YESSIR ... that's how it works with Google App Sync and Play Services. GLU has at least got that part right and is why I use two devices during the Global (when I am competing that is); let the tablet cool off and use my phone. It helps avoid crashes and diamond raids as well.

    Moving to a new device is a snap.

    Good point, I suppose it's not cross platform, so one isn't able to login on android using some kind of IOS account :/

    Nope it's not possible ... as with IOS the Google API has it's own proprietary format even though it's open to developers. With a little effort GLU could make this a seamless transition, but hey they can't even get the weapons awards worked out ... SMH

    If I could migrate to IOS without losing anything, I would do it in a heart beat.

    I wanted to do an IOS standings update to show how stable the leadership is on that platform:

    #1 3485 Foxmc
    #3 2810 Ausausa Ranked #2 on the All Time Leaderboard
    #5 2396 Patrickpoillot Ranked #1 on the AT Leaderboard

    #10 2085 Bradr752 Ranked #3 on the AT Leaderboard
    #12 1910 Tonyzaper22 Ranked #4 on the AT Leaderboard

    The largest Drone on this list is Patrick with a 550 K Drone.

    All the Big Dogs have come out to play this morning.

    Day one I felt sleep 2 points before getting the 50 gold on milestones.
    Day 2 I slept too ending with 5 parts only, the plan was to craft on day 3 wich we all know never happen at lest on IOS .
    Anyways I went to the dam mistiry box, have to run it 4 times... It work GLU at least me spend more.

    Anyways good luck ... Hope many more quit too. I wish to have the courage to do the same...almost there.😡

    This was the exact same scenario the previous SNIPER GLOBAL. I remember this because that's how I obtained my 12.5 CROW SNIPER; not in the Global but in that weekend's VIP EVENT.

    This is great news because the 13.5 ANTELOPE (rather it's clone) should be available in this weekend's VIP and MORE IMPORTANTLY (for those willing to try on our new strategy) 14.5 TESLA, 15.5 ASSAULT and 15.5 HEAVY will be available during the next HEAVY Global VIP/Super VIP Event (next week).

    I'll grab the new 13.5 SNIPER this weekend in preparation for the next REGION UPDATE.

    My strategy's schedule is to wait for the 15.5 TESLA, 16.5 ASSAULT and 16.5 HEAVY. These should be available in exactly 1 month + 1 week (late September) if my predictions hold true to form.

    How many times has SCORPION steered you wrong?

    The most important element of this strategy is PATIENCE ... thanks to GLU I have plenty of it LOL

    Good Luck and Good Hunting !!!

    That makes sense, sounds like a great plan. I may join you. Next weekend for the VIP works for me. I am due for a buy in this weekend. In fact I am down to 7 Energy credit and 17 Gold. I am going to try to limp along waiting for tomorrow's VIP.

    I picked up the 13.0 Rhino for game $, so I don't need a Sniper, but I am looking for a top 30 finish for other reasons. (Namely, upgrade Drone and stay in 3rd on the All Time Leaderboard.)

    BTW, I made Level 119, 330K, but it is still the same old Drone. I need those 410 K accessories and I have no idea how much it cost to get to 410 K.

    Absolutely ... I'm in the same boat, down on medkits and grenades; waiting for VIP to get my monthly supply and a SNIPER.

    You've got to protect your all-time leader board status; it gives you motivation to compete at a high level.

    Congrats on the drone ... I should be ready for 92K jump very soon. Since I have no 92K parts, I may try to spin for a 92K MACHINE GUN. At 50 GOLD, I shall spin only twice and use half of my milestone GOLD from the last event(s). I'll wait until the VIP for obvious reasons.

    I wanted to revisit this post because you have hit upon an idea that could change my game. (Most of the ideas that change my gameplay come from you. Thanks! I would send you a high denomination iTunes gift card in appreciation, but I know that you are an Androidian and such things mean nothing to you.)

    I assume that you have already posted this as part of the TOOBAD strategy and I missed it, so for those of us who missed it the first time here is the game changer for me:

    I had always assumed that the order of Globals was: Heavy, Assault, Tesla, Sniper, Heavy, Assault, etc., but that is WRONG. The true sequence is: Heavy, Assault, Tesla, Sniper, ONE POWER LEVEL JUMP, Heavy, Assault, etc. That means that the Super VIP offered in conjunction with the higher powered Heavy Global will be the best one in which to acquire weapons. I looked back in my notes and find that I have been using this strategy without knowing it, since I was looking at the Heavy VIPs and buying in, without realizing the pattern.

    Based on that I am keeping my powder dry until next week.

    With 3 Days 6 Hours to go IOS standings are:

    #1 7421 Foxmc
    #2 6060 Ausausa
    #3 5610 Tonyzaper22
    #10 3760 Bradr752
    #30 2160 Arcangei

    Losing some ground to my competition, living off freebies until tomorrow's VIP. Four of the top 5 are European (3 French, 1 Albanian), hopefully they will go to bed soon.

    Oddly, the Russians, the Chinese and the Japanese players are all posting lower scores this Global. I don't have a clue what that means.

    Ah Yes, young weed hopper ... How many times has SCORPION steered you wrong? The corner stone of the game and consequently our strategy, is the HEAVY GLOBAL, but not the event itself, but the Super VIP that coincides with it ... TOOBAD was spawned from this and I never would conceived the idea if it weren't for your deeper insights that brought my attention to the VIP Event itself.

    So the credit belongs to the both of us ... you've changed my game and I yours ... we're both the better off because of it and that's the way it should be.

    This latest group of leaders doesn't exhibit the prowess of the first three generations of leaders; they're erratic and lack stamina; they pop up on the board and then fade away just as quickly. I don't know what to make of it; a bad week maybe?

    It's also the first time I've seen the entire leaderboard change with the exception of SANDIP (who I once thought might score 100,000 AP) ranks an abysmal #24 with 12,335 AP).

    Hey I accept ALL gifts ... besides I can use it against that new iPad I was contemplating ...

    BRAD I don't know if you noticed the alleged hacked drone; aside from the drone health being off the charts and probably causing an application fault, I was particularly struck by the XP component of the drone level.

    It was only 1480.

    The only way to explain this is either the XP scale drastically drops off as the drone level increases OR the drone had been hacked or victim of some GLU programming error.

    I just reached 98K POWER at drone level 106 and the XP reads 1010.

    What does your drone level/XP read? Does this make any sense to you at all?
