SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law
- Do not post anything illegal under U.S. law, or encourage other users to break the laws of the U.S. or their country of residence.
- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.

- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.

- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

    My experience doesn't make a sample, but this TI has been, by far, the one with the worst ratio chests/stamina. And by "worst" I mean getting my first chest with the first hit and then having to spend almost 5k stamina (in 50x3) to get a second. I refilled and leveled way more than the last one, where I reached 40 chests and now I am sitting at 20. counting free daily ones.

    I guess it is bad luck, but I can perfectly understand those who claim ratios have been changed.

      I had 15 rolls after 6-7k stamina. Last few events I don't think I reached 15 rolls by the end.

        my luck is just as bad , there are a few gaps where 2 x 9000 stamina with no chests, 1 x 7000 stamina with no chests.

          Maybe the "luck factor" could be be smoothed out a bit to make it less frustrating for the majority, albeit less thrilling for the lucky few.

          I mean, the spin is already rigged, and the initial drop rate with monsters is rigged, so why not rig the rest of it?

            Yeah they could definitely add a "rule" that if no chest has dropped after 4k stamina used (for instance), the next hit will be a guaranteed drop. 4k stamina is a lot, but the initial drop rate is pretty low already.

            That should reduce the frustration a bit, without making it too easy to get chests.

              Rather than average stam/drop over the whole event, I'd be more interested in the interval between drops - I'm "convinced" it slows down as your number of chests increases

                Actually I farmed 28 chests in 2h. Leveled over 20+ times due to sometimes I can have a whole level where I am getting nothing.

                  I actually feel like its great drops on 1st day - horrible the next 3 days - normal drops on last couple days.
                  And its like that on all TI events.
                  Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

                    I bet it works that way. Diminishing returns.

                      I normally farm during those days when they drop red or green crystals.

                        doing 20x3 stamina using barbarus - max stamina expended without chest drops is 13 000
                        doing 50 x 3 stamina using barbarus - max stamina expended without chest drops is 11 000

                        just the latest stats from this TI

                          How many chests were you at when these big droughts happened?
                          I'm only at 35 chests, my first 10 or so chests were roughly every 1-2 k stam, then it semed to be every 3k for 10-20, last 15 were much worse up to about 4-5k/drop - always using 20x3 barb hits

                            This. This is what I suspect it is. It's diminishing returns. After each chest/level, the next chest/level requires more stamina. It has nothing to do with which day you start. I did all 15 in one day because I forgot one season, and it was nearly the same as now. Except I think they increased the stam required between chest drops now. And after all the seasons where I always got one free chest roll, I have gotten none now the since season before last.

                            Plus, who needs that particular general at 35 really, so no real urge to go for it.

                            I like this one and Meteorite. They are at least still a little fun. And I can use some of the stuff. Wish it was more fun though.

                              I think 28+ and 40+, 50+. I only click at 35 while reserving the other chests for next TI.
