The problem lies in the fact that the event is not designed for low level players.
In W2, I will easily achieve 400 wins without even needing to attack the clones and being in the team with more players.
But if you only have a couple of active players around you, there is no way for you to achieve the minimum number of victories.

all clones are placed in the same horde/huckster as the player, everyone complaining about no targets should switch huckster to an underdog, then ye have targets enough.


I suppose, it works vice versa - 3 clones of a player are placed in 3 teams other than player's. So you cannot face your own clone, but switching the team cannot give more targets (and anyway, I think close to the end of competition switching team is a good idea at all).

STRIKE : War of the Hucksters
106. post - 2012.02.01. 19:14:46
2012-02-01: War of the hucksters: new end of date
We decided, that we extended the War of the Hucksters event! The war ends on 14 February, Tuesday, 14pm CET (8am EST). Have fun! The Doomlord Team.
Subject : STRIKE! --- War of the hucksters ---

Dear DL-designers,

After reading this announcement (see quote); I must say I’m completely chocked.

Since when do we play a game; where rules are adapted in the middle of an event?

Although it’s “just a game”, I cannot agree with those kind of practices; those who play this game in a “serious” way must see what I try to say here.
This kind of changes (in the middle of this event) gives a gigantic advantage for those who :
1. Have 30DP/day
2. Have enough targets
3. Have Energy Harnasss
4. Have some potions left
5. Have shape reality maxed out.
Making up your mind to keep on being in the top-10; wether it’s usefull or not, is influenced by the above elements and is in function of time and time left till the end of the event.

I go on strike!

As for me, I will not make any further attacks upon my opponents; though I am in the top 10 (Player: Elvenwind – W3)
I know, some will be happy but I hope most of them can understand my reaction.
I personally feel being ripped off and being highjacked my place in the top 10.

A “not amused player”
Elvenwind.

I used a DD/EH switch strategy for the event ~ so I hoarded up all my EPs before the attacks started, up to a number I estimated would be sufficient for three weeks of killing, not four.

So I'll probably just stop when they're finished. Getting 2 more space-rift potions is a bit expensive, and hunting with EH isn't very attractive.

Mind you, there might be a good reason for extending the event. But I'm sure it would be better received if we knew why it was extended.

On the plus side, maybe my character on W2 will manage to get 100 kills now.

@Kalann,

thanks for your reaction.

ok... this or other arguments might be in a personal intrest...

What I intend to say is:
You prepare yourself for an event ... and suddenly, in the middle of it, they launch a relic; another one…, and now they extend this event. Tomorrow they withdraw the “*dummies*” ?...
I disagree changing rules while an event is going on... that's not the way you do business!

Get my drift here?

World Cup final. 25 minutes in the second half.
Brazil 1 x 0 Spain.
Ref calls both captains and says: "Listen, FIFA has decided that this game will not have 2 halves of 45 minutes. Instead, we are playing 3 thirds of 45 minutes."
I don't know about you, but I think this is BS.

Well, i still have 2 more spacerift potions (thank you Xeno wars), so i an use another week, but it is indeed not how it is supposed to be done.

I would be fine with an event with an end time once a certain percentage of participants have gotten the endgoal (300/ 400 vicltories) if that was how it was decided at the start, but i dont think its a ood idea to change the rules afterwards.

At least look at the bright side The rewards for being in top 10 on this event really SUCK . I do understand your points of view and I do agree it is unfair..... BUT I am actually happy they extended the event by 1 week, it means I don't have to worry about the Crystal Clan for another 7 days
it figures ....

And it's not like it's an interesting event anyway - just duel as much and as often as you can. So now we've got another week of tedious slaying. I want to get back to the nuts and bolts of the game - developing players and the Clan. We're not building as much as we should, and we're not taking down epics like we should.

Either set an event for a certain time - or until a goal has been achieved.

Well, this is the worst part for me.
I don't really care about the event. Since I was told all my hard earned AA abilities wouldn't work*, I gave up on it and decided to stick to 300 victories.
But not having the CC really sucks. As they were deactivated for the event, I can't drain any SE from them.
And now I have one extra week of this lousy CC behavior.
Really awful.

*It is really frustrating to realize the only EH event is not really an EH event. Having 3 DD events and 1 event that ties EH and DD is not very balanced. But who cares about balancing anyway, right?

Cruel.

I don't find idea of Hucksters War extending as good one. I saved up number of event points enough till Feb., 7. After that I switched from Disadvanced Development (DD) to Energy Harness (EH) to get more Soul Energy from duels. Now I'm in tricky situation: once I'll be out of event points I'll be forced to go hunting and this will bring me double Exp cause I don't have enough soul diamonds to make switch from EH to DD and to EH again (and at the end of event to DD as I'm hunter character). This will ruin all my development strategy. So I kindly request Admins to take back their decision. Make the end of War of Hucksters at the 7th of Feb. Thanks.

So the War of the huckster is over for this time, and I have a question about the Huckster medallion.

I was in the winning team on World 2, and in the top 10 for most potions. This should give me 2 medallions. But I also had one medallion since the last event, and now I have a total of 2 medallions (and not 1+2=3).
Is the medals for the top 10 not distributed yet or did I miss something about how the medals are awarded?

EDIT
Even with 2 medallions I don't get any discount on SD items with the soul-huckster.
