Samurai Rewards are terrible

And not in the good way.

For 170 tokens I get 4 tickets and 2000 wood?

And when I get to see all the prizes... *shakes head* they were all terrible... none of them worth the cost in troops of hitting a samurai camp.

I'm not doing this event, period.

     With those 170 tokens.. what did you get from the samurai camps ?
    Probably around 80,000 coins...24,000 food.... 12,000 stone  and a similar 12,000 wood not to mention 3 or four items, a few skips and about 100 rubies.  But yeah, the actual prizes  are terrible...and you actually have to claim the rewards after you "win" them.
    That always makes me laugh..."Please GGE,  can I have the prize I won ?" :)

    The gimmicky way to earn the apparently 'top prizes' are pure luck and so I agree for the amount of luck needed the prizes do not pay off or give you the drive to really go for it but, I would say the alliances prizes for the samurai event is good and even if you don't use the tokens you could still build them up for the alliance to receive easy mantlets for all. Plus the loot isn't bad for the troop losses either.

    So the way to get the top prizes are terrible, but the loot and alliance rewards are worth hitting them, so not all prizes are terrible.

    60k coins.

    And I could've gotten those 60k coins from ice/sands rbc's at 1/5 the casualties...

    12k stone and wood? That's one hit on a dead castle.

    I have never gotten rubies or skips from Samurai.

  • I'm with you on this one @pallu: Samurai is nothing but a caricature of the other events on which it's based.  I'm not lvl 70 yet, and I've been building OPs from scratch.  That together with producing tools for the continuous run of events, I have barely time to hit RBCs  --the barons call me every day, asking why I don't raid them anymore.   So the influx of res on wearkers areas of my domain is the only reason why I am participating.
  • dont waste tokens on the most expensive thing. im not sure what the cost is at higher levels, but i know that when i was active it only cost me 10 tokens for the cheapest thing, and the rewards had very little differences most of the time, meaning whether i won a 10 token thing or a 100 token thing, i would get the same thing. so why waste extra tokens for barley any bonus?

    plus, GGE is not required to guarantee us a reward, they already pay us equipment, skips, coins, resources, and some alliance prizes. the card game is like a bonus.

    I'm not even participating. At my level, I get around 60 casualties using horrors and such, more with coin troops.
    Also, my OP's are very much built (4.9-5.1k food production per OP) so I don't need the resources enough to justify the waste. (expecially since npc's need much fewer tools and I have much fewer casualties.)

    admittedly, though, I've had some lucky today, winning the jackpot three times, getting 150 deathly horrors, 150 ruby mantlets, and 1k rubies.

  • whats the point of giving food as a prize if you can't have it as store is full....At least let us have what we win otherwise it looks like the con it is

    yeah, that means that a 170 prize level costs 2 times as much, taking 1/2 your chances of winning a jackpot away. and i said idk how much the higher level cost

    Samurai is by far the ********* event around, tied for the first spot with the colossus.

  • Colossus isn't bad unless neither you nor anyone in your alliance has anything to build, which is never.

    So lets see what I just got for 1000 tokens which cost me to get them approx 1300 res tools (do use rubie also), coin to send, approx loss of 30-40 men per hit. this is at 75 tokens per hit when at level 90

    I got 300 oil, ( i have tons of the stuff anyway) 300 oil for all those tools and yes you get res but I can get that from towers and Dead Castles.

    I always do the comps but will be giving this one a miss from now apart from the odd hit.

    Regards Mario 999
  • Pallu if you don't want to play samurai then just keep attacking in other kingdoms, its OPTIONAL

    btw, I observed one thing- if I get 4 correct with 0 Xs, then I get 3 Xs. To force me to spend rubies, but hey! after I've spent rubies I have a fair chance to win! Because GGE doesn't care anymore!
