yup, i noticed this happens a lot lately. i have a feeling this is a technique to give freebies and bring in players. extra ps sounds about right.

Game is back on and the towers have started.

I added pervy, pglandis and hep to my allys. 1 spot open, but i would also have a good igtm that wants to ally.

Don't worry pglandis ...

For tower (at least the last few towers) you won't even need full natural regen to make it into the top 250 if you can run floor 9 or 10. Just do your 30 steps whenever you find the time and you will be fine. Wink

Actually, if you start burning erk's & med kits step back to the floor that gives you a good shot at running the floor clean. Just don't forget each floor gives you a crystal when you finish it the 1st time, so try and clear them all once. Then decide which floor makes the most sense for your squad.

Carpe Diem!

Well if your connection is as flaky as mine, don't even waste the time on anything beyond level 1 or 2 of the nexus. Otherwise, you will be deep in floor 3,4,or 5, get tossed, not be able to reenter and lose the multiplier.

I usually just run level 9 of the Tower, skip most of the nexus madness, use an XP boost, and level several mercs while in the Tower. Anything I catch (other than floor bosses) goes right back for credits to offset the XP boost.

Have at it!

How much difference does it make running the Nexus bonus area from the different floors of the Inf Gates?  I mean, is it a lot more bonus point from level 10 compared to level 8?  Does it make sense to avoid using PS on the bonus area until later?  Is it worth me spending the extra ERKs and Med Kits to keep trudging through level 10 over and over?  I usual do just what Heptathlete suggests (run through all ten then fall back to repeating 7 or 8 ), but I'm always open to instruction.

I'm still open, I think. Had an interview to get prepared for this afternoon so I haven't been in game except for a few minutes since event kicked off.

Might need to send me an ally request first.

Everyone, don't forget that you can only have 5-6 "event" allies across all the buckets (accepted, pending, requested). If one isn't available, send them a quick note before you cross them off the list as they may have been spammed by other players and haven't cleared the queue for your request.

Carpe Diem TFB!

Just went through lvl 10 myself and he is pretty freakin mean. I posted his roughly estimated stats in the wiki/json thread if someone has yet to see it.

Btw, FetusPosition, what happened bud? I tried to ally you not long after the event started and you were full.

^^^ looks like Art inherited Aces gift of "boss catching". Or is that a special combination of skills easter egg that we haven't heard of yet?

I think I'm rank 1470ish, probably the last guy in this event Smile

Too true Art. Back during the Gyro event I played bottom feeder and I ended up about 1400 also. Several months later ... no growth. Doesn't sound like they are going after their core business growth in a smart manner.

I have captured ZERO tower bosses as well. Far fewer than what I would normally have at this time. More "features" from Dakota.

This must be my event cause I have gotten 5 or 6 tower bosses so far. Of course one of those was the free BE, but still. I usually have to try and trade for BEs to get this many.

I was shocked to get one tower boss so far with an ME on level 9 (where I can run at a moderate med kit). I usually only get the free BE boss each event even though I attempt with an ME every single time I finish a level.

@souperbean: I still have eight copies of EVE 1.0 all at level70 to trade. Plus most are skill maxed. Initially I was upset on the re release but I figure the value may actually go up as players need R1s to make PEs after the event.

cheers  Zoar, how long have you been sitting on those gals?

Soup, I've found EVE's skill hits more often than Ulfr, but who knows ... maybe I've been blinded by her appearance. If you don't need her, I'll happily add another one of these gals.

Zoar, let me know.

Not sure how EVE compares to some of the more recent mercs released, but she's a keeper.

Also, I figured I would actually try to run the nexus floors this morning. I feel like Gomer Pyle - Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

Used 1 of the freebie PS and chewed through 4 floors before I ran out of gas. Good enough for me - picked up 13 caches and a nice clutch of points for my peeps!

It ONLY bounced me out of the game 3 times during the run - AMAZING! More amazing was that I was able to get back in with enough time on the clock to salvage the floor before the timer ran down.

I was tempted to try my luck and go for the final floor but it was too tight.

Had 7 steps of energy, would have picked up 1 more for the last 5 minutes on the clock (then used on the final step to clear the floor.

Taking the 10 steps across the floor would have left me 4 short to clear the 5th floor. Even adding in the 3 free steps for the 15 minute clock would have left me hanging 1 step short.

Well it seems like they are re-releasing only the Tower Boss mercs. Since, I believe, Siren Maiden was an event reward merc, I don't believe that they would re-release her. But I started playing FF with that event so my memory is a little hazy.
