Eagle Mountain gives better rewards on the 1st try

    I've seen that eagle mountain has been significantly better if you manage to go all out on the first try. A Youtuber got Claude on their first try in eagle mountain and today I got Annie from eagle mountain in my first try. I have no idea why this happens but it’s probably because Rovio is trying to get people to spend more money in retries thinking it’ll be just as good as their last round.


    (Also don’t judge me for choosing early over strong)

    The last 4 days I have hit 3 pigs before floor 10 (all on first & only try).

    What are the “casino rewards” and what is the price to renter.

    I think this might have to do with EM being super buffed to some people but not all.

    I am on Gems to re-enter (as I assume everyone is now) & I have only 20 gems as a reward on floor 12 (worst casino rewards as far as I can tell, so no incentive to spend like the higher gem rewards players might do).

    So I think is that Rovio might be doing more of it’s unfair testing and letting people who have ticket rewards able to reach fooor 70 and everyone else is unable to without a obscene amount of gems. (I really hope EM finally gets finalized and everyone has the same odds and rewards)

    Congrats of Annie ;) I have tickets as prizes starting off 22nd floor now, 12th floor is 20 gems, re-entering also by gems, yet I am NOT willing to play the Rovio's play as hitting 1st pig already on floor 1, 2, 3, respectively... And the furthest floor reached with no hitting pigs was 5...

    I think it actually is something different now. Every 1st eagle mountain run gives you a #% chance of being a good run. Rovio needs to make it so every run is good instead of 1 out of # runs.

    Since the last switch of rewards and re-entry fees, I've hit a pig before floor 10 every single time; this last one was literally on floor 2. Never once even contemplated paying to continue.

    That may or may not be true but there is simply not enough data to know yet. Especially since most people are not playing more than once.

    Retried for research purposes and the first pig popped up at floor 8...

    So it’s confirmed that the first attempt will be “luckier” than the retries. Now we just need to know if it’s a test group or by chance...

    How much did u put in to get to level 70?

    How is that "confirmed"? It takes a lot more than a few tries to determine a pattern or odds from one entry to another...
    Most people are NOT re-entering at all so the free entry will have a skewed perception of the outcome(s).

    In my case i had to spend around 2000 gems, which i find a good amount for all the tickets and good leveled 5* bird.

    I’ve did many retries before today like during elite matilda’s eagle mountain reward and 2 retries yesterday. All ended with the pig appearing before floor 10 for me.

    I'm still averaging 2-3 pigs before floor 10 & I'm only running the free entry. I'd hate to think that's the "confirmed better rewards entry"... lol

    What do you mean that 1st is more lucky, that screenshot is proof it's not. iv only 1ce got past that since a few days before special birds in the mountan. And that was with my last gold reentry, more likely the other way round from what I've experienced

    Today I got to floor 52 in my first try and floor 6 on my 2nd

    A. Wolf Motherflocker

    Are you saying you got to 52 without a pig? That would be some all time record...

    I actually got to the 40's without a pig recently. Got an elite Matilda since I rode the wave all the way to 70 (got up to the point where I paid the 800 pig penalty). I felt this was a worthy expense since not only did I get an Elite Matilda (BTW, is she ANY better than regular Matilda?) as well as some silver and gold tickets. THIS is when you invest a little bit in EM...when you are having a great run!!

    I think the highest floor I ever got to before a pig was around 30 but that was months ago.
    I did get very lucky during the end of the QB event & got to 70 only spending 370 gems. That was my best ever EM trek (it's just too bad it was on Seattle day... lol). If I recall I hit pigs 3 & 4 on floors 68 & 69.
    I still have not even sniffed floor 20 yet without 3 pigs in about 2 weeks. I am guessing it's still pretty lucky/random that anyone has a good run. OR, perhaps certain servers are giving better odds & I'm in a crappy one?

    No, the "elite" birds are just a slightly different skin/outfits.
