Eagle Mountain “testing”

    They might just surprise us with Chuck next week, and you're pretty accurate IF they follow the same trend as with the NFL Quarterback event starting 11 days prior to the Superbowl. For what it's worth, they are probably trying to get the core flock rotation out now so they can focus on the upcoming Aces. Coincidentally, the World Cup starts a day before the game's anniversary, so we may be seeing 2 Ace events pretty close to each other.

    yeah...that happened...all those players that spent countless hours and money fighting for the top spot in the Matilda event are kicking themselves now since they could actually spend less time and money.

    We will know what next in couple of days at most, maybe even tomorrow.

    It's simply TOO GOOD to use such birds named ''elite'' just for occassion of events... They need to max their income, and what's the best approach? ''We're giving you AN ELITE bird x, which WON'T be available anywhere else and only during this event''...

    So peps going into:

    And then it's happening the Elite bird IS AVAILABLE after the event up for grab - and this fact denying it being ''Elite'', btw...

    I still think it's elite since only the "richest of the rich" would have enough money to climb the unfair eagle mountain since a pig pops up every 3 floors.

    Why use the same elite bird that they already put out? Why not a new one like one of 20 others? It's just lazy...

    Can you imagine how much complaining they would generate by introducing a brand new elite bird via Eagle Mountain?

    So? Everything they do anymore generates well deserved complaints.
    And, if they are testing to see which way generated more $$, using a bird that the big spenders already have is not the way to do it...

    Personally i think its one of their weaker money making ideas, they have priced out the middle revenue spenders by having the pig appear so often, now players that would have attempted it and spent a bit of cash wont have even bothered since they know the pig is going to pop up a lot before they get to 70. Just my opinion though. :)

    I appreciate that Rovio is constantly making changes to better our gaming experience, most of the changes have been for the better. Eagle mountain for a few weeks recently was absolutely exciting I finally made it to level 72 so it gave me HOPE ( anything and everything great comes from hope ) so I have played and refreshed and played 5-10 times a day because I had hope I could make it that high with only spending under 300crystals which was acceptable, then last week happened and I would get caught by a pig by myself second door, so I still had hope with multiple refreshes and 1000’s of crystals and over a week of trying my (hope) has been severely repressed, but not extinguished, I won’t be using any crystals on eagle mountain until it is like it was a few weeks ago,, please Rovio by giving us better chances at climbing eagle mountain our hope is lifted and we will want to play more,, thankx the nut

    Nobody should keep going if pig comes up too early and often. Even Bill Gates will go bankrupt doing the Eagle Mtn or AB2 elevator of fortune

    I think having an elite bird in the Eagle Mountain is a stupid idea for Rovio. When it came up and it was really hard to get and impossible without spending resources and more than likely real money. If I could wait and take my chances in Eagle Mountain it is more than likely significantly cheaper. Thus, stupid!!!

    Easiest way for Rovio to make the $$ is selling the event bird during the event. Leave the ticket hatching odds the same. Many will take their chances at the tickets. The adults with credit card may decide to save time and just buy the bird. I will do it when I get pass 15x.

    That would fundamentally change the game (not for the better IMHO). If enough people actually bought birds that way, Rovio would likely nerf the hatching odds even more than it is in hopes that more will buy instead.

    Maybe add some premium 5* birds that are only obtainable with deals but are very good in PvP and MPDC

    You have some VALID point there, my friend - yet please consider that the scenario you've pictured above applies to EVERY BIRD peps can grab from the Eagle's mountain RIGHT NOW, no matter Elite or non-Elite ones...
    So it leads to think that if every birds become an elite ones now, non of them being like this one for real - being EQUAL in the terms of getting them... Cause the elite means something unique, better than the best and for sure VERY HARD to get and only for the few, chosens ones... Which no longer applies here as the elite birds become COMMONLY available for eveyone, who dare to grab them (my 2 clan mates got Matilda, paying about 400 diamonds, btw.), not only very few players - best of the best - truly ELITE...

    Besides... They have broke their own scheme here - now people MAY NOT so desperately push towards getting those during an event running, those who will be smarter (and less vain), could be easily wait for them being available via Eagle's Mountain with sacrificing way LESS effort (time, diamonds etc.)

    They just switched me from Coin re-entry to Gems. Also, they added the worst reward Casino option so I will not be playing any re-entry's at all...

    What you have, if you don't mind me asking, please? The same as I was having before, maybe?
    From now on I have ALL THE WAY tickets (and re-entering by diamonds), yet since the odds seem to be quite unfar (so called [R]ovio [N]eats [G]reed), I am NOT interested edrool.gif

    Yeah, it's that same "rewards" layout you posted on Thursday.

    They seem to have decided on gem re-entry, everyone in my clan has it but still has differing ticket & gem rewards for hitting specific floors :(
