My Event Ally list is:

nandoguimarae
heptathlete
nimey78
daedhead8 (once he accepts)
NikoZar (been trying to ally with him the last few events-he seems to do consistently well)

Another excellent player(s) is mmllaneza and gummyshark674. You can also go back to one of my previous posts on a different thread to see my event ally list. That could help you in your search. Note that said list needs to be updated.

Hey Deadhead are you planning to join us in the nexus on Team Fug Bug? I've been holding my slot 5 for you, but if you've received better offers let me know.

Sorry everyone! I was distracted by tower event in GI Joe, only just saw that Tower started in FF. I'm logging in now to add peeps.

EDIT: Done, added Hept, Nimey, Zoar and Guimarae (who from here on out I will be refering to as "G" because trying to spell "Guimarae" makes my dyslexia hurt).

I've got a 5th spot open, any takers?

Hook up with mamoncrief's brother, as mamoncrief says he's solid.

Ironically, the bro's game ID is mamoncrief. Should be a good one as mamoncrief was telling me he's typically in the 100 - 200 range.

He sent me an ally request this afternoon, right about I was beginning to wonder about Daedhead desire to be part of the TFB experience. I sent both Daedhead & kin-o-mamoncrief notes on their boards to facilitate the connection.

Daedhead, let me know if he ever does (or does not) accept.

Zoar, tag team time. I leave the nexus your capable hands. Got through level 8 and into 9. Maybe I'll still be sub 100 when I get back on later.

Using Bluestacks update: Zero nexus sprites (again), but lots of infinite anomalies (some levels I even had 2 anomalies). Go figure.

Carpe Diem team fug bug!

Enjoy your recycled merc skills on shitty mercs in an extremely boring tower event. I'm so glad I have a new beautiful daughter to play with instead! I'm not retiring, but Dakota is making it so easy to pass on events lately...


I do hope TFB does well in my absence Smile

^It'll be hard without one of our top earners but I think TFB is set to do well in this event. And yeah the event L and R leave a lot to be desired but that tower boss is looking pretty sweet. I'll likely be doing an 8n1.

With such a long event, it's a marathon not a sprint. I plan to make my more serious "push" once they start rolling out the point boosts. As of now, I have only made it to Level 9. I should break into Level 10 this afternoon. At which time it will just be re-running that level over and over. Plus up to this point, I have only hit one Gatekeeper.

In general, TFB looks like it's going to be in good shape this event. My wildcard spot is a good player and he should finish at the worse under 200 (currently he's under 100 at 96). Having all five event allies shooting for, and making, less than 200 is going to be good for all of us.

In my opinion, finishing all of the Gatekeeper levels for the nexus caches is not the top prize. It's the fact that you can collect some serious points via mind erasers as you go through those levels.

One other thing to note is that as we (time-wise) approach the milestone where average players are reaching Level 10, attrition will start to set in to the pack. Level 10 is not the easiest level and some squads will not be able to grind it. Thus I think we will see that after a few days there will be less position "movement".

Also, I am kind of new here, so I don't know if this is common knowledge on the forums (it may be, and in that case just ignore the newb) but when you trigger a gatekeeper fight, you can hang on that screen before you fight him indefinitely, as long as the the game does not close out. There is no timeout for gatekeeper battles like a normal fight. So you can hold there until you regen all your energy, then fight the gatekeeper. From that point, if you wait for a little time to pass each zone, you can complete level 4 without using resources. It is time consuming, but for a f2p player, it is an excellent way to fully utilize the largest bonus from gates without resources.

Might help some of the 75-200 players get an edge

Excellent point mamoncrief. I've done that a few times in the past. Unfortunately my phone's been acting strangely since the early June patch from Dakota. It doesn't like something and constantly freezes / ab-ends / or generally misbehaves.

Since then I've been on Bluestacks and it functions admirably, yet without the nexus point multiplier. So rather than sitting on the Gatekeeper (and the nexus Bosses) and waiting for the free power to come back, I've been running the floors as quickly as possible.

I've gone thru all 10, and based on the number of erk's I used, I've pulled back to levels 8 & 9.

Keep on the pressure. TFB all the way !!!!!!

I think that Dakota would have a riot if it came out they were incorrectly calculating who was getting lethals at the final point dispersion, regardless of how many points people have in their ally list waiting to be absorbed at the end.

That said, now you have my heart racing a bit about all the points I had planned to save till the end, so now I have to decide what to do.

Better to handle the ally point as you go along. You don't have to deal with, like in Aces situation 600K in 10K increments. Addressed along the event it's easy, waiting until the last minute (to hide from a competitor your true count) could be problematic.

Personally, if you sit on ally points until the end, the algorithm should have a "penalty percentage" to encourage fair play. Hiding your points until the end and swooping in to take a placement is very Machevellian (and could be root of the argument in another thread about some of the Asian teams mysterious super-performance).

Take the points as you get them gang. Keeping the game transparent is one of the unspoken (and likely underlying) reasons for the forum.

Play fair. Go Team Fug Bug !!!!!

Most people seem to accept all their points 1 or 2 hours from the end of the event. I don't think that it is fair to lose a percentage if you do not accept them as there may be very valid reasons why you couldn't accept them and you accumulate ally points right up to the end of the event anyways.

I think that they did it that way so the coders could be lazy and not have to find a good way to handle the point reward notifications if it was done automatically. The other problem is that if you were able to accept a huge number of ally points at once, there could be issues with trying to handle all the point reward notifications that go along with that.

So in the end, it is not a perfect system, but there are probably a load of reasons why it was done that way.

All they have to do to fix this is just to display and rank people on points + unaccepted points. But I am guessing that there are reasons to do with the way the back end of the game works that means that it might not be a good idea.

I tend to "snack" on the event ally points. Collect some here and there to make milestones, give me a quick rank/morale boost, break up the boredom. But the bulk I tend to collect just before the end of the event. I've been trying to spread it out more evenly because last event the game crashed on my phone and I couldn't get back in until after the event ended Shocked Luckly I had collected all points just before this happened...

I grab the ally points as soon, and as often as I can.  Probably from many events where I was barely involved, but got huge points from allies (yea, I hear the rumblings of "sandbagger" and the like).

Time to return the points favors.  The 36 hour rundown shows TFB doing well:

hept - 117
zoar - 152
dead - 161
nando - 198
ed/gummy - 224
nimey - 591

Good work Team Fug Bug !

Hooray! After nearly 2 days of playing, and about 2 dozen loops through the base levels, FINALLY a nexus sprite generated while using the Bluestacks emulator to access the game.

Thank you Dakota! Now if I can just capture some floor bosses with the Mind Erasers all will be right in the FF world ...

Ed, I think I have a keymaster I can send your way.  Do you have 1 AC you can send me on the trade as I really need res (and nobody is using ammo for Tower anyway)?

H

ps. I could reverse the trade and do a level 1 Keymaster v2 for the ammo (or shot or brain).  Let me know in the game.

I always collect my ally points right away, letting them sit and trying to collect them at the end seems like a huge pain in the ass.

Right now I'm running floor 9. I got through 10 and ran it a few times but I was always using 3-5 erks to get through and I only have around 50 right now. So my plan is to run 9 until the last couple days when the capture points go up then go back to ten, use my 3 BEs and run it for the rest of the event.

Frank, if you wanted to shoot me some ERKs I wouldn't say no.

And I'm getting a little bored too. Tower events always get boring once you clear zone 10 and start grinding. It doesn't help that GI Joe has a tower event going on right now and BB should be starting one any day now.
