    I am hoping my current collection 108 silver tickets (Inbox + hatching hut) and 8 gold will get me all 3 Carsons. Few more tickets from MPDC, EM tonight, and Event not counted yet. I probably will burn some energy down with my existing team with 1 Carson and 1 Lucha in place of a Matilda + weaker Chuck. That should get me into the 40s easily. Then hatch at my lunch break. Burn up the silver tickets first is the plan. No point or need to save anything for Dr P event after.

    You're not gonna hatch them all first?

    Don't feel like hitting the Hatch All button if I can help it. I may not track anything when I am pressing the button but I prefer to hatch 1 at a time. If I get the 3 early then I can stop and save the rest. Silver tickets are hard to come by especially when Rovio nerfed gems.

    Interesting. I find I get slightly better odds when I hit hatch all.

    For now I only have 25 silver and 2 Gold, which couldn't be enough to get to 4* carson. I'm thinking about to skip carson. Realy dont know right now

    Do you have a 4* Carson now? If not you should try for him. 5* would perfect but not likely but possible

    The boost has gone back to what was originally posted... 250% for the 4 star version, and 400% for the regular and master 5 star versions.

    I wonder if internal testing means the levels require the 5* version to complete.

    Crowd Control usually will get you deep into the fights. Birds like Lil Pecker, GF Frost, Bomb with thunderdome, Dr Probotnik all can help

    LOL... That would imply they actually TEST anything before changing it.

    Lol. They have to test it at least a little. But "a little" is a VERY relative term.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they made the event harder so people would try more for 5* and master Carson. Two master birds is hard to pass up.

    I'm with you... I hatch one at a time.

    I have been saying how bad Cyril is to the rest of the clan, especially the newer players.

    Interesting point on that. They did a competition on their Facebook page to win a master pecker after the event. Closest guess to the actual amount of times master pecker was won. The actual number was 25,388 times. So, working on 5% of players actually completing L80, that's just over 500k active accounts. Compare that to the 10 million+ downloads on Google Play.

    Mind you, even though that's a big loss, it's not unusual for a mobile game to have such a huge swing in its first year. However, what they can't afford is to lose more players if they want the game to remain viable and profitable.

    You forget though that every new version, and every re-installation counts as a new download. Twenty three full versions, plus patch downloads from the store, and hell I know I reinstall every few weeks just to get clan chat working until the next time it crashes, and that's say three times a month or more over the last 16 months. Their downfall was going public with their stock, has been nothing but losses ever since, mass layoffs have gutted them. Their recent earnings report came in less than half of what they projected so yet again the stock dropped. Sad part is if they were sensible they'd quit gouging and driving their consumer base away and instead would find a happy medium where they can make a profit, continue to improve upon what truly is a great game, and keep us reasonably happy.
