I am pretty sure it's 2 hours. The 1 hour countdown that you see next to your ally starts one hour after they become inactive.

Oh is it? Nice to know that. I thought it had something to do with people running the game on the background of their phones but I guess I was wrong.

Just updated my earlier post, it's 2 hours. Just tested it again to be sure.

And to answer your partial question, running the game without doing anything in it does not keep you logged in indefinitely.

You 'must' do something that logs you into the server logs in order to be counted as 'playing'.

I've tested this before by leaving my second phone running Fantasica, turning off lockout screen/screensaver, sitting at the main page, logged in etc. After two hours of leaving it on, I was considered 'logged out' on my allies list.

Things that log you into the server logs are : Trading, posting a message, training, etc. Basically anything that uses up CP/Timers/messages. Paging through different pages/options or wall browsing do not log you into the server logs if I am not mistaken.

I am not 100% sure of the second one however, so theoretically you can be on Fantasica but not 'logged in' if you browse walls for 2 hours+...

Lol, I kinda wish you would have beat me to it, because I hate having to write essays on a forum just to explain my stance!

And I am a master of disguise in my spare time, so you never know afro

I'd gladly pay Luna and ally points to keep my lead on for my allies instead of having my device on.

Currency use. The fact that this game is so ready to hand people more luna than they can carry and gives them no "end game" use for it is more than frustrating. As I've said before, I use every feeder I get as a raw enhancing material for high level units just to keep my luna below 10 million, and I shouldnt have to.

Just updating my DPS thread with 4 new units takes up a good 1+ hour of my time due to formatting, crosschecking, speed testing etc.

4. Units. Only.

It took me a good 3-4+ hours just to set up the entire thread/posts...If I included the testing time...yeah I was really bored. Smile

That's the reason why I'm not even touching the 5*s even though I have the data for the event 5*s already...

I am not a fan of training events either. It is true it frees up time (only need to play once every 30 minutes or so), but as a semi-casual player (as in I have yet to dump hundreds of dollars into this game) I find all the worth while prizes are out of my reach.

Top 200 and the 50K Spirit Shard rewards (5* units) are both extremely difficult to achieve. I have been playing pretty religiously at this event and my overall rank has dropped quickly from the beginning. At first I was around rank 200. By now I have dropped to around rank 450. At this rate I am concerned I won't even get the 4* Laughing.

I am also floating around 12500 Spirit Shards by now which means I only get about 3000 a day. That means I may not even get Henry by the end of the event! I am not sure how they designed the point and reward system here but I think a player who plays as much as I do should at least be able to get the 4* rewards Sad

I agree with you completely. This is one of the reasons why the game gets boring after a certain point. It feels that you're no longer progressing. I actually posted a suggestion on mobage's website. It's much more conservative than Dnonamus' suggestion so I'm hoping that they can forward the idea to SS.

This event in itself is not that* bad.

But the newly added lag and constant reloading to the top page has been a real fun drainer for me.

It takes 10 seconds to just load up my page and sometimes my character runs for 30 seconds in training without encountering anything*, sometimes it just got promptly kicked to the top screen.

Annoying as hell when you tried to do anything.

Not to mention the card pack is just re-use reward Jap. players got it for free (well invitations). And reward is ... ... un-interesting.

Halloween event was much better in comparison.

i'd have to say that this event is really more dependant on LUCK than others...

i mean... you could be using 100 pots and still get 0 encounters. you could also be using 100 pots + paris and still get 0 encounters...

i mean... when you compare with colloseum-type events... though luck can still play a role, it does not play a SIGNIFICANT role like what we have in training. with colloseum style event, if you have good units and team... then you're likely to win. and what matters in the end for such event... how many TE you can afford to use (to increase your win).

this training event... it's all luck. if you feel lucky and are lucky, you dun even need Paris.

As long as I am playing, I will maintain the list.

I wouldn't start it unless I was going to maintain it. Smile

That being said it's already updated to the latest 6*s.

I'm having trouble with the quest page loading pretty darn slow. I'm currently ranked at 800 but I don't really care about that right now. After getting Mary, I am back to doing whatever. The ranking rewards are not so interesting that I would rather get 3 premium tickets and 3 TE. I'm already disappointed that Mary is not what I thought is. I would love to get on the 200 rankings but that's not gonna happen to any free player.

Right now, I'm just maintaining my rank between 700-1000. I'm not sure if it's worth getting the 4* card from the ranking. If it is, then I'll play more to reach 600 within a few days. I think it's possible because I was around 6000 last Saturday night. I'm probably lucky since most of my allies are 5* and 6*.

I find it a lot better to have an event that generates more TE. If I can make 5-10 TE in a day, I'd be happy doing the event for a week with all my spare time spent on the phone. I'll bring my charger everywhere I go and play every down time.

I'm on the same boat, rank between 800-900. After I got Mary I pretty much ran away from all the bosses. I guess it's a good thing because I actually get to take a break hehe (I didn't sleep well during the Amazon event and the Den of Sin event because I was too busy earning points and rewards. Shocked

Well I'm not a fan of any luck-based event either, but since my most wanted card is a 100k reward for a future training event, I have to get used to it.

So far all my 4* bosses are above lvl 100, rank 376 and have 30k shards. And I'm using a Tom that an ally gave me for free. No pot spent (saving pots for that event Razz).

PostSubject: A gripe about the current event.   Wed Jan 16, 2013 11:10 pm

So I haven't been playing this game for too long, but personally I just need to say this event is terrible.

I mean you get enough tickets to fight the bosses twice which is just putting your guys in front and waiting to see who wins, and then if you lose waiting 10 minutes to finish the boss off. Then you wait and randomly get prizes every once in a while, and you can get some BT prizes if you grind 25-3 a bunch.

I mean the last event was pretty fun because there was actually a challenge to it, and it was fun trying to beat all the levels in the allotted time but this just seems pointless.

Anyways, just wanted to complain, but also ask a question:

How often are events? And are many of them in this style?

Panel events are pretty much for the game to profit. It's not fair for free players or to some people who got no time but there are other events that we can take on.

we have at least 3 events every month. You're not really supposed to ace every events because the only way to do that is if you have a really crazy freedom. I'm just glad that this event is granting the enhance boost which I really love.

Just wait to the arena event which should be soon and then we will have another tower shortly. It might go in order or it might not.

I will merge this thread with another thread with THE EXACT SAME STATEMENT made during FOA2...
