I was just curious on the player's styles in events. Like do ppl spam TE at the beginning to get way ahead, or do ppl hold back until the very end? I am currently ranked 15 in the Amazon event, but its only the first day lol. I jus wanted to get an idea of how to pace myself for this event. Very Happy

People do both. Spam some (I would venture to say between 20 and 35% of their total for the event) throughout it, with the majority in the beginning to take the lead, and the rest to hold their position.

then, on the last day, during the first 19hours a couple of people will blow off everything they have if they know they wont be on all day.

On the east coast (where I am) events end at 5 in the morning. So a good amount of people here will blow everything they have between 12 and 3, just incase they fall asleep.

The final 2 hours everyone who wants a spot blows what they need to so they can secure that pot and stay awake until the event is over.

I was in the high 100s for a prior event, but at the end everyone rushes to the finish. I couldn't compete and ended at 300.

Its tough, save up te and get high star event cards and you have a chance.

I've placed top 200 pretty well without using TE's. Event units always help(I pulled a 5* FM unit on the first event box I got). Though I can say I'm lucky enough to have a job that lets me set up a battle every 10 minutes. So basically getting in gameplay for 16-18 hours a day nets me top 200.

Top 200 is fairly hard without using any TE and having a job/school without much time to setup your event. The rush in the last few hours is insane. Some events I hold 130-150 with only using about 20-30 TE, but at the last few hours, I drop down to rank 280-300. Pace yourself and push for the win at the end

I'm back again lol

So I'm rank 108 atm, with 20 TE to spare on lap 6 floor 75.
How big is the final rush gonna be tonight? Will I be able to hold on a top 200 spot with what I have?

Something else to factor in is that by spending TE you are basically purchasing the unit you win. There was some grumbling that I heard that Arrebol was not worth the TE investment.

Using no TE and just investing time in events I ususally rank in the 1000 to 500 range

It also depends on the event and what the rewards are. For the FoA2 event I placed #308 without spending any TEs and not trying too hard. This event I'm currently #513 without spending any TEs and trying pretty hard (hoping to break top 500 for the extra ticket.) I also only have a 4* FM Unit, so I'd probably be around top 400 if I had a 5* Sad.

and dun forget... there's a chance of server overload... or some glitch that causes event to end earlier... after all, if you see the notices, they always say maintenance time can change without prior notice.

How much TE would you burn to stay in top 20 for an event?

A couple events ago(halloween event) I used absolutely no TE or anything and ended up finishing just below 400. I was hovering around 96-150 the entire event But the last day or two fell down below 300 to as low as 490s. But then was able to stay below 500 to get the WW. And that was with little effort. I wasnt on non-stop or anything. So dont think its that difficult to place top 500. But top 100 seems hard as hell!

Expect to spend at least 1k TE to get the 6* event prize.

Howd you get so much TE and what not. You seem to be in top 10(more top 3) damn near every event. I guess just alot of RL money..
