- 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.

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.

          I got this weird idea in my head that the drops are either

          linked to a specific stamina usage (for example 1 chest after every x stam used)

          or

          limited to 1 per monster (I literally only got 1 per monster, and it helps to explain why people dump 4-5k stam on a varg/sam and get next to nothing)

          maybe a combination of both

          then again event ends in less than 24 hours so no point overthinking it
          CA Maths, a must read for beginners, a bit outdated though

          Looking for a slow kill group?, not sure what to do once you're there?

              this is not true, I got 3 from 1 varg.

              was about 1 roll / 1k stamina, last 4 days at 1 roll/ 2k stamina, sit at lucky 29 try to reach 35, last 4k stamina only got 1 roll.

              when is the event end? Jun 27, 2017, 20:00:00 in which time zone?

                It seems to be immensely streaky.

                  I did most of my monster hunting on Sunday & Monday, reaching 65 chest at about 2am Tuesday morning (local time — would be 4pm PDT). I spent about 900FP (net — also spent the full potions I got as rewards and whatever I got from monsters), so more than 100 stam refills. Net spending was thus less than buying at 90FP/5 (60 spins would've cost 1080FP that way), which is good enough for me: playing the game has to yield better results than "just insert FP, no need to play" spins.

                  It was streaky. There was no pattern, whatsoever, that I could deduce. And some people got their spins with quarter of my spending, which does not amuse me I don't believe the chance was based on only hitting monsters (#hits, amount of stam spent, damage done) but rather depended on something else. Possibly indirectly. Possibly in a way the devs didn't even think of. Like rng seeded from account specific values or alike. And the devs aren't going to tell us.
                  So all I can say: do not trust the devs, do not trust any "chance" they give, always assume they're doing something to screw us and that some people will be getting huge benefits over some others, likely for reasons the devs don't even understand and that they refuse to acknowledge.

                  I considered going for 135 rewards chest, for more crystals. But I considered that way earlier…

                    Yup, after this event, most people will feel the same way, if they have not already.

                    On topic, I just dump 8K stam and receive 2 chests. lol

                        7500 stamina today and no chests. I would not be surprised at all if they adjusted the drop rate down for the last day. 30 more would get me to 135 and would have bought more favor points to do so if drop rate was reasonable, but not going to be a chump for these weasels

                          The drop rates that I am seeing are still absolutely horrible. So No, from my end they have not improved. No where close to the beginning.

                          I am sitting on a few hundred FP. So I could buy some spins. No. I won't promote this behavior with FP.

                              600 stam hits appeared to have dropped a chest for me at least 40-50% of the time.
                              For endless 20 stam hits to get the piled up essences, i got maybe 1-2 chests.
                              Thats on a 15k stam sample in total, 10 chests just today.
