    While I must say that I am excited for a new event, I think midoki May have gotten the rules a bit wrong on this, and of course it was done on purpose. Let me elaborate a bit. Now, I may have gotten this wrong, but from what I have read it seems like the rules for this are a total gem/money grab yet again by midoki. The rules sound like the more pirates we use and have left on the actual battlefield, the more tokens we will get, which in turn will require more gems for a rehire during a streak. Wouldn’t it make more sense to get extra tokens for pirates that were actually NOT used, rather than dropped at the last second right before a 3* win?? Is it not MORE skillful to use LESS pirates overall?? I don’t understand why we would get more tokens for using more pirates, other than for midoki to get us to spend more gems per rehire. I know I’m not alone when I say I try my best NOT to use every single pirate in my arsenal in order to spend fewer gems per rehire, but now this event is encouraging me to do the exact opposite. I simply think that is a bit backwards, and I think we should get more tokens for NOT using every pirate, LP, or guild ship pirates. I am going to play the way I always do and see how this event works, but from what I have read, it seems like the rules are a bit off here. Just my opinion I guess.

    Cheers!

    Anyone that knows me, knows I’ve been wanting a new event for a very long time! The event hasnt even been played yet, so I’ll give it a shot before I’m brutally honest lol. (Lost art btw) All I have to say rn is I was hoping for something more skill based rather than who has the most time and willing to gem the most expensive crew they can possibly find. As with most games I understand to be competitive you might end up spending some money. After all I’m sure the people that made the game had some intentions of making money and not being a charity for gamers. I might even do well at this event because im a horrible cheap crew(min troops used) type of player. ;) Good Luck all!

    It's fairly unlikely, but never say never!

    I’m not sure what supposed to be fun about this event. There’s nothing challenging about attacking the easiest base you can find using minimal troops, then dumping off all your expensive ones at the end to get an insane amount of event points. Nothing to be proud of tbh. I doubt Midoki intended it to be this way, but probably wasn’t thought out all that well. You completely struck out on this one imo. Don’t intend to play it, it’s a complete waste of time. I’d say nice try, but you lost me on this.

    Edit. Apparently all you need to do is be willing to lose and dump off wd, hg, juggs, or other expensive troops at the end of the timer to win tokens. Are you kidding me rn? It’s great that you added 1k gems for an event that was.. well....Not so well thought out. Back to the drawing board. An event where you never really had to attack, just dump troops that never really had to battle before time runs out. Its just really ridiculous.

    As an event, still standing doesn’t do wonders for me either. But I do like the rewards. Just normal game play has seen most in my guild finishing with a couple of days to spare.
    My biggest hope is that those in less competitive guilds will see that it is possible to finish events and use this as encouragement for the other events.
