    Thank you Night Guy for a great post! I was surprised $300MM is the max for coins, I thought it was $250MM? I have never gotten over $250MM, and I am maxed out.

    Happy Holidays Big E 2. At first, I believed the coins were capped at 250M, but I've received multiple reports from other players indicating they received amounts higher than that. Therefore, I assume it's a 12x multiplier instead.

    Hmmm well that's good to know! I look forward to getting a $300MM treasure box someday!

    Thanks again, Night Guy for a great post, and happy holidays to you as well.

    Great post Night Guy---this should be the "go to" for anyone (especially those new to CW) on what to expect and a very nice primer on how to "get ahead". Thank you for taking the time to post.

    Happy Holidays to all :)

    Copied and saved in a Word doc, so when CW decides to take the post down, I'll still have your suggestions to refer to.

    Update - 3rd Monument Series. Might be flipped on the L3 and L2 but will confirm soon.

  • Rambler

    Yes Night Guy, on the 3rd monument series, Mothership should be Level 2.

    and Mothership-T is actually "blue ice" color (same as series 1 L4), not green

    Happy holidays NG and DG.

    Are you sure about the payout order for flaming boxes?
    When I tested them (quite a while ago) I got:
    Charm 50%
    Gems 33%
    Passes 17%

    Those percentages might be off a bit, no test is perfect, but they definitely paid more gems than passes.

    Hey Tickle you might be right, that was before they found the bug in the system. I have been lazy lately not entering the TB data just using the monthly emails. Still have all the screenshots, maybe one day I'll get to it lol.

    Ahh the good old days when gas was $1 a gallon and gems were a 1:3 chance. I don't keep track, but, it seems more like 1:6 now so maybe rough guesstimate: 1:6 gems, 1:6 passes, 4:6 charm?

    Cheers Night! So useful and useable is that information! I saw one seasoned played had a Crown level of 90, so that fence may have been moved.

  • Night Guy

    Yes your right Megs22 as of yesterday there are 90 crowns. 4.95T required to reach that.

    Just got 5K gems at crown level 68, I see it on your list but I think that's a new thing. Another reward scaled back, what a let down.

    Seriously, you get 5K gems, a building and a high level charm at the regular level 66, what a joke. Why even introduce all these rewards when they get constantly taken away?

    Tickle, the 5K gems prize isn't that new.  I got it for my Crown Level 2, which was September 17th.

    A friend of mine complained to Support about how she thought she was going backwards on her crown rewards, but they said that it's strictly random as to what reward you get for each crown.  I'm not exactly thrilled about my Crown prizes either. Mine have been:  Crown 1 - Flying Car charm; Crown 2 - 5k gems; Crown 3 - Castle Fortress building; Crown 4 - T Rex Skeleton charm; Crown 5 - 10k gems. 

    In their first five Crown rewards, some of my friends have gotten 25k or 30k gems, and others as many as three buildings.  Hoping it will get better as I go along, but if as Support says the rewards are all random, they have no correlation to the level of the Crown you achieved.

    56 crowns I got 44 with charms and 6 with gems ( 5K, 5K, 10K, 15K, 20K and 25K)  and 6 with buildings

    Once you max out your city, yeah, the prizes are all the same no matter the length of the treasure box. I've suggested that for people who have maxed out that we get bonuses.

    Brown Box: Minimum 2000 PP, 1000 Gems, 25 Million coins, Luckiest 7, Mystic Ruby (current prizes)

    Blue Box: Minimum 2500 PP, 1250 Gems, 30 Million Coins, 2 Luckiest 7 or Mystic Rubies

    Yellow Box: Minimum 3000 PP, 1500 Gems, 35 Million Coins, 3 Luckiest 7 or Mystic Rubies

    Purple Box: Minimum 3500 PP, 2000 Gems, 40 Million Coins, 4 Luckiest 7 or Mystic Rubies

    But this doesn't seem likely.

    Hey Night Guy, thought I'd let you and others interested, I got 22K party passes for reaching crown level 16.  Since I currently have over 3M PP's, I would have much rather had a building or gems.  First time I've heard of anyone getting party passes for a crown level.

    I got 22.000 party passes too for my last crowns (69 and 70)

    I too received party passes for my last crown.  This is a very disappointing change, two thumbs down.

    Adding a relatively small amount of party passes as a crown level reward, and the mere fact they're  party passes which we already routinely get from our cities, is one of the most poorly thought out ideas you've ever had, CW.  Players who are at crown level have invested a great deal of their time - usually multiple years, and often also spent considerable amounts of money on this site.  We help retain and explain the workings of CW to new players, spread the word about how much we like the site, and get our friends and family to join. Giving us party passes as a crown level reward is truly insulting.

    It's already bad enough that we don't know what crown reward we'll get until we get it, how uneven it is as to who gets what, and at what level they get it.  I would much rather have an equitable system where everyone gets the same prize as they reach each level.  The gem, building and charm prizes are mostly pretty nice and worthy of the hard work and dedication that goes into earning each crown. But 22k passes....seriously??. Today I've gotten a total of 22.9k passes so far, from three Treasure Boxes. I didn't have to earn 50B coins to get them, just invest well in my city.That doesn't mean I'm not grateful for getting that many passes from my TB's today after another long dry spell though. That's where we should be getting them. I've almost completed Crown Level 8, so what's my incentive to make the remainder of the 50B needed for a prize I seem destined to receive, but have already gotten without doing that? 

    I believe the CW powers that be need to look long and hard at the implications of this decision.  Over the last few years other cutback measures on the site have already chased a number of long timers away, and I would hate to see more leaving over this kind of disrespect to your most loyal players. We will only take so much, until we say enough is enough.

    I 100% agree with you Luck Is ALady.  I looked forward to at least getting a building, charm or gems when I hit my next crown level, but if I keep getting party passes, I don't even care if I get any further.  Party passes aren't an incentive for me to move up.  I, like you, get over 10-20K party passes every day from my treasure boxes.  With over 3.5M to use already, getting 22K for my crown level was a HUGE let down.  Please CW, take party passes away from the crown level rewards and give us something worthwhile.

    Wow, I haven't gotten any PP yet, though I'm a few days away from my next crown level. I agree with everyone that I'd much rather get charms or a building than PP...

    Theresa Hill2 - WOW! 3.5 million party passes? I was wondering if the system could handle someone with over 1,000,000 passes accumulated, I guess I have my answer now. :) Congrats!

    Finished my Crown 8 early this morning, and my reward was a building (Ecosphere).  Very, very happy about that, and tyvm CW for giving me a building.  I heard from someone else who completed a crown level yesterday that they also had received a building. So not sure, but hopefully the great "Passes as a Crown Level reward" debacle is now history.

    I just heard that Kaos got 22K passes for his Crown 23 on March 8th and 12K passes after completing Crown 24 yesterday, so I guess this isn't over yet.  He's very angry about this.  I also heard he had posted about how upset he is on here, but the post evidently was removed. As I predicted, he's considering leaving CW over this.  CW, I'm speechless that you're moving forward with this reward, with all the dissent it's causing.

    I understand that there may be concerns regarding crown prizes, and I want to extend my apologies to everyone. Let's focus on keeping this post dedicated to sharing tips and tricks so that it remains accessible and helpful for everyone.
