Angel Party - Crushed hopes for a good prize Reply:24| View:2161

After the very poor 'Happy Sea' event I was hoping GTA would reward us with an enjoyable carnival. Lo and behold GTA provide a 7 day carnival. Woo hoo! GTA listened to the players.

The carnival shop is very good too. Lots of great prizes. I was really looking forward to this event.

Maybe we will all get some good prizes...

Sadly I got dumped on big time already but I wish you all good luck in this event.

ANGELS CHESTS
Day 1:
I did 50x spins on normal shells and got ... 3 large starfish! Only 3 large starfish from 50 spins!!!
I did 10 spins on fine shells and got a better result ... around 40 large starfish. Not too bad!

Day 2:
I really, really needed a good result for large starfish to be on for a good prize.
I did another 50x spins on normal shells and got ... 2 large starfish! Only 2 large starfish from another 50 spins!!!
I did 10 spins on rare shells and got ... 20 large starfish. I only landed on large starfish on my very last spin too, almost getting none at all.

Result
A grand total of 65 large starfish.
100 spins on normal shells = 5 large starfish (5% success rate - complete rubbish!)
10 spins on fine sheels = 40 large starfish (40% success rate - not too bad)
10 spins on rare shells = 20 large starfish (10% success rate - complete rubbish!)

Feels like this event is over for me already and it's only day 2.

I won't get many more rare shells so I have very little chance to get more 20x large starfish.
The return rates for normal shells are complete rubbish and won't help me at all.
I can't get a good prize. I can only hope to get some incredible returns from my fine shells and maybe get a half decent prize.

Hope you have a more enjoyable carnival than me :-(

It's always been like this. From the first carnaval till now. Nothing has changed in the droprate. The droprate for normal shells, in this case, has always been incredibly low. The droprate for fine and rare shells has been higher since the start of carnavals.
Sometimes you're lucky, sometimes you're not. There's still ways to play caravals with strategy so you can force luck to a certain degree. Play smart.

The last 3 days of Carnival usually has a Consume that can give you about 10 of each of the shells per day so you can still get a decent amount of shells, also make sure to do CoM since you can get some fine shells from there as well. Also don't forget the shells from craft master.

Don't count yourself out yet, everything is based off of luck so you could always get lucky on a few of the days and come back and get something decent.

Hi j-pavick, thanks for advice. Wasn't aware CoM had drops in it.

Just really sad that due to 'random' nature of carnival chests some players have a great carnival and others get crushed by terrible returns. Doesn't seem fair at all really.

Much better to get rid of keys and chests and just earn carnival tokens directly I think.

lol, you have no idea how a bad carnival actually looks. oh and you was lucky to get so many of those L`s, my daily income was like that:
day 1. 50 normal 10 fine 10 rare = 67 Starfish L
day 2. 50 normal 10 fine            = 11 Starfish L
day 3. 50 normal 50 fine 10 rare  = 24 Starfish L
so yeah, badluck brian

bad luck or something else, I don't know. but the drop rate for the starfish L is much lower compared to the 1st of the event. Today I spent 51 normal, 26 fine and 6 rare, got about 14 starfish L.

But on the other hand, I didn't spend any diamonds to buy shells. So it is free(almost).

So can't complain about it, whether the drop rate is lower or higher.

Really!!! Hopes crushed on a second day. For getting 65 starfish (L).
Not sure whether to laugh at you or slap myself for giving advice to you.
And I have way lower than what you succeeded to make.

Angel party has a lot of items. You will definitely be getting something out of it.
It would serve you better to pick an item from what you make rather than dreaming for what you should be targeting for. That's not my style, but then I don't give up so easy either.
