Defense Base Upgrades Costs for "ALPHA KILO" are quite expensive; 54% Increase over TIER 35.

    Not sure if you could pay for the upgraded twice, but this bug is all because of the subscriptions. Even my new player has had this non-updating payment since he bought the subscription at tier 4. A quick change to another tab and back updates the base page to it's new level. Since you're usually broke after the upgrade, it's not really going to catch anyone.

    LMAO TRY_AGAIN ... I've never tried and I never would, but there are those amongst us who pay for upgrades using GOLD (believe it or not), and whilst my sympathy for these folk is minimal, I wouldn't want to see them throw away an upgrade.

    Yes ... I usually simply restart the game, which is always a good idea following a content update and increasing stats.

    Based on the above initial PvP Battle Raided Vaults and considering that the TIER 36 Battle Cycle will not officially start until Thursday, 01/19/2017 ...
    ... I am setting the preliminary (early) expected payouts structure as follows:

    Raided Vault Minimum: 400M Diamonds.
    Raided Vault Baseline: 500M Diamonds.
    Raided Vault Maximum: 600M Diamonds.

    Current High Vault Take: 505.9M Diamonds.

    If the above projections prove to be accurate, this would represent a 42.86% increase in payouts and a 54% increase in upgrade costs; essentially a net increase in costs of roughly 12%.

    I'll have a better (more accurate) payouts/costs projection once the TIER 36 Battle Cycle has started.

    Good Luck and Good Hunting !!!

    Greetings Agents ...

    Here are some estimates regarding the effort we're facing with upgrading Defense Base "ALPHA-KILO":

    [email protected] Diamonds = 1,062.5 PvP Victories
    [email protected] Diamonds = 850 PvP Victories


    Contrasted to "ALPHA-JULIETT": [email protected] Diamonds = 790 PvP Victories.

    Good Luck and Good Hunting !!!

    I managed to fight a number of PvP Battles prior to this morning's scheduled "SERVER MAINTENANCE".

    This is what we should expect "on the other side" (when we resume) ... only better. :cool:

    Current High Vault Take: 530.59M Diamonds.

    I'm off to the "Salty Mines". :)

    Good Luck and Good Hunting !!!

    These payouts have exceeded my expectations and they're not all that difficult to find either ...
    ... so far CJS Version 6.1.1 is functioning 5x5. :cool:

    Greetings Agents ...

    I've had a long (late) work day, so I haven't had a chance to crunch all of the new statistics associated with CKS v6.1.1 ...
    ... rest assured that this will be completed over this weekend.

    I have managed to fight 20 or so PvP Battles and even that low score has enabled me to RANK #120 (or thereabouts).

    On a positive note raided vaults are running quite high with my current high vault take @ 593.41M Diamonds. While it appears on the surface to be quite a large increase, it is more than offset by the TIER 36 Base and substantially higher costs associated with weapons upgrades.

    The age old question has reared it's evil head once again ... Diamonds OR GOLD for upgrades?

    I'll further explore that concern as well; there is plenty to digest with CKS v6.1.1 but 'tis will be done.

    Current Record High Vault Take: 600.5M Diamonds. Ooh Rah.

    Good Luck and Good Hunting !!!

    Here are the Maximum Payouts for Tier 36 related to Economy Level.
    They are derived from Jr having 37.5x weapons, so far not even 25% upgraded except for the Assault.

    Jr has now received maximum payouts for every PVP for 3 tiers now. When Sr played these levels, he was lucky if he got maximum payouts once every couple days. I'm sure Jr is doing these in a much shorter time period, but the brick wall is quickly approaching.

    Economy Max Payout
    _Entry 0 505.9M
    _Level 1 569.14M
    _Level 2 632.38M
    _Level 3 695.62M
    _Level 4 758.86M

    Each economy level gives 63.24M above the last one.

    Surprisingly for Jr, with weapons only 1 level above his current Tier, he has maintained maximum payouts at each economy level. This will break down I'm sure at next base upgrade unless he get's some VIP weapons.
    The payout increase at each tier has been exactly 1.5 above the last one. GLU's geometric progression.

    Knowing this, I can now predict the possible maximum payouts for the final 3 tiers. And looking at the very last number, 2.56B - I can confirm this was Sr's maximum payout to date, although he has not made that again even with a 40 and 40.5 power weapon for about a month. GLU has put it's thumb on the scales as usual.

    Tier 37
    Economy Max Payout
    _Entry 0 758.86M
    _Level 1 853.72M
    _Level 2 948.58M
    _Level 3 1.04B
    _Level 4 1.14B

    Tier 38
    Economy Max Payout
    _Entry 0 1.14B
    _Level 1 1.28B
    _Level 2 1.42B
    _Level 3 1.57B
    _Level 4 1.71B

    Tier 39
    Economy Max Payout
    _Entry 0 1.71B
    _Level 1 1.92B
    _Level 2 2.13B
    _Level 3 2.35B
    _Level 4 2.56B
