    Good luck with that opinion & just like everyone else, you are entitled to yours. It is hard to convince players who don't make all the "maximum gems" that it is easy to earn all those gems daily! The Epic nodes starting on Lap 2 are ridiculous! Even with 80% breeding Guardian, it takes a lot of gems that you didn't take into consideration! 7 Epics could be sped up for 7 gems each but then you run into the problem of having to speed up hatching as well which is 33 gems each! With a TEAM like ours, we run from 10 years old to me, on Social Security Disability, so not every player can "save 200 gems up" easily. Lower levels aren't going to earn 100+ gems a day either. We don't get in the Top 50 of the various mini-Events (Gold, Runes, Food) to earn the 100+ gems from those. Gems Dungeon nets 20 gems. Dungeon of Books now gets you 12-15 gems, so that is sure not going to add up to 249 gems a day! How many players actually buy the Race Monster when it comes out a few months later? Probably a lot less lately. I've been playing 2 years & every time we get a "good thing" like earning the Race Monster at 10 laps, SP comes back with "but you have to get through 5 expensive EPIC Quests to get there"! Just hit the 5th Lap with 9 Epics by one or buyout for 170 gems! Lap 2 was 160 gems I think to buyout the 7 Epics by one! That adds up to way more than what you are calculating!

    @Marianne-van-Es, I got the Gems Chest first (300 gems) that I didn't purchase then about 30 minutes later, I got the MAZE COINS chest & got 2,000 Maze Coins. I also read HAKA TAKA's post about them sending a replacement if they sent the wrong chest, so I didn't stress over it. I also received a message back from Support saying the same thing! They actually were very responsive for a change from Support! Thanks @Haka-Taka and @Fox for all your help!

    @Fox the biggest problem we find is the insane algorithm! For the last month, we are "matched" with Teams with Level 100 monsters on 18-20/25 or 20-25/30 Defense Bases! Our lowest Level Teammate is Level 31/MP 700 to the high (me) Level 115/95,840! The next closest teammate is Level 70/MP 10,768! We have 8 teammates under MP 1,000! We tried keeping lower Levels but it is like the ML algorithm drops them completely! Getting matched against some of these Teams are hard to even win even though 50% or more of the Team is inactive! I think a Team should be required to have a minimum of 75% of their players active! We went against one Team that only had 3 active players & checking the Stats, they had been the only ones active in their last 10 Wars!

    I would also love to see the minimum monster power fixed at 300/600/900/1200/1500 etc.! Every time I recruit & ask for minimum 300 MP, I get 15-20 "Candidate" Levels 20 & under & some have 150 MP or less! This makes a huge difference with the crazy Teams we get matched against!

    @Marianne-van-Es I completely agree! If they had done 1,000 Laps, it would be suspicious! Teams of 25-30 VERY ACTIVE players can breeze through these Quests! Some Teams choose to spend ALOT & that is their choice! Our Team has spent very little & are on the 4 Node of the 10th Lap & are thrilled to be in 3rd place! We have also done this with just 19 players & 4 of those just started on Friday with our Team! They have worked as hard as the “veterans” on the TEAM as well!

    I don’t like the constant EPIC BREEDING on almost every Lap nor the crazy nearly impossible amounts of Gold/Food to collect in the Joint Effort Tasks, but it is what it is! I also don’t like they doubled the amount of points to get our 5 million Food for Individual Rewards!

    Wherever the list of Epic Quests came from, this made a huge difference for us as well! We could prepare for it & started breeding Epics the day we got it! 4 of us put in Epics to rank up & were ready when that came up!

    One thing we can all agree on is getting the Race Monster for 10+ laps was a huge plus! We are very excited about that!

    @Marianne-van-Es, Unfortunately as long as Leads are not reported for doing this, "innocent" low-level players will be excited to be "picked" by a higher level Team! I have been reported & banned in the past for saying anything so I stay out of Global as much as possible during Races! We have kicked 1 Cellhopper that joined that requested Cells within the first 2 hours of joining our Team & another new player left the Team because he couldn't request Cells! He even informed me he had hatched an Epic & collected 850k Gold so he should be allowed to request Cells. When I told him that he still needed to collect 1,500 Individual points or participate in 2 Wars, he told me that was not fair & left! I couldn't see any points for either of them so not sure if he really did what he said or not! We gave them both a warning before kicking too so they knew in advance! I did screenshot the Warnings & the conversation if there is a problem! I also tell new players that they should never spend gems on our Team to complete Quests. I don't want any player to think that they are required to spend gems but we do tell them they must participate in the RACE & WAR!

    @Haka-Taka We were so proud of our Team when we got through that last Epic Node on Lap 7 then we get the "Craft 8 Level 6 Runes" on Lap 8 Node 1! GIVE US A BREAK! We already have Epic Breeding AGAIN on Lap 8, Node 3, which won't be too bad since several of us have Epics breeding! I don't keep Level 5 Runes around very long! They go right on my monsters! I have had a TEAM in the RACE ever since the first one & this by far is the worst & the greediest one ever! Yes we made it to Lap 8 & have Scrap Warrior guaranteed but "the newest" is always the best!

    @Marianne-van-Es, Guess this just proves the whole discussion from last Grand Prix Race! The "heads up" on your chart will help us a lot. We stop when we reach Lap 10 so we don't have to mess with the worst ones after that! Then the matchmaking in this is crazy! 9/20 Teams are in the Top 1000; 6 in the Top 1044-1500; 1 at 1935; 1 at 1999; then 2 at 2202 & 2505 with us at 2155! Seriously broken there!

    @Marianne-van-Es Wrath of God was a YTer & he quit about 9 months ago because he said he was "bored" with the game after playing 6 months & reaching Level 130! Obviously he was definitely a P2P player. He told his subscribers he was going to be doing video games more because it paid better. It had nothing to do with not liking changes.

    Haka Taka had his own reasons.

    Why does anyone quit doing something? I have stopped playing multiple games but not because I got "mad" or didn't like what their development teams were doing. I just got tired of the game & stopped playing!

    I would definitely rather be able to remove 1- or 2-monster teams or even combine them of the same player. I currently have one player who has posted 10 2-monster Teams & 1 1-monster Team which could be combined for 7 full Defense Teams. I is definitely very irritating not to know who has made attacks as well.

    On our Team, we require all new Teammates to make only 1 GOOD QUALITY ATTACK in each of their first 3 Wars! I also do a "comparison" between our Team & the Opponent. I then make a list of Assigned Matchup Attacks for all Teammates. This helps stop BOTTOM FEEDING if they have required assigned attacks! If they make one Random Attack & they could have maybe won that attack, I give a warning, reminding them of their Assigned Matchup Attacks. If they make an "impossible attack", they get no second chance! I've had a few with Level 20 monsters attack the Triple 100 Bases! I even had one guy cuss me out because he made 5 attacks& 3 of those were Bases 1/2/3! This helps eliminate the players who are joining just for Cells or War Coins! We have "No Cells until 4th War" posted in our Team Description. When a new player asks for Cells, I post a message to that player by name in Chat & tell them that & "This is your only Warning!" By then, I have also posted the Team Rules at least once! If they request a 2nd time, the player is kicked! As far as Attacks are concerned, we require one but I post 2 for them to do one or both! I post these Attacks at least 3 times before Attack Day begins then at least 5 times before the War ends! I then post those who have not made any Attacks with the Warning of how much time they have left! New players to the Team are kicked 2 hours before the War ends! We don't carry over anyone who has not made Attacks unless I know beforehand! I let one War go by last week without kicking anyone because I wasn't sure if players were in Florida or not unless they were able to "request Cells"! I figured if they could request Cells, they could attack! Our Team has been in 165 Wars & won 129! Some Teams say "We never kick" but we were in War where all Teammates were inactive out of 30 except for the Lead & 2 Co-Leads! It was very sad! They were Ranked in the Top 4000 Teams but had lost 10/10!

    Completely agree @Claudius-DC-Sailer! We have a mixed Team with 7 players out of 23 under Level 40! They don't have a chance to get the 610K Gold in a reasonable amount of time. Why should we be paying our way out of the 2nd Lap? Another sad Race we won't get very far on! I was really looking forward to helping out our Lower Levels to get a good Legendary! 10 laps didn't seem impossible! One Team (Race Team obviously) has already done 5 laps in less than 10 hours! They are ranked #3,679 but went from 20 to 30 players since last night & 7 of them left their original Teams during a War! Oh well! We will do our best & just be happy to get any monster I guess! We aren't going to buy out laps & we have told anyone joining our Team that we don't want them to do it unless they want to because we aren't planning on it!

    @Marianne-van-Es we have finally made our 4 laps! Your chart has been invaluable to us! We may or may not make 10 laps but we are in 4th place...which is crazy! The biggest issue is the crazy costs. We are not spending but very little to buyout quests so that is probably why we are only on the 4th lap! A few things are better but with the same high collect Gold tasks of 600+ Gold, no Team with lower level players have a chance to do those!

    @DeathScorpion, They are trying to get more "revenge" battles! I changed my Defense Team to 2 weaker Epics & a weak Rare toget more reasonable opponents! When I reached 3600 trophies, I couldn't win even the Revenge battles so I changed the Defense & dropped to Gold II. I get an average of 4-6 Revenge battles every 6 hours. With the way they match the opponents so unreasonably, that is the only way to win. I am ranked 18,258 & don't really care about being in top 100 (or 1,000 for that matter)!

    It seems that the number of laps will be not so high than last race.

    I doubt it will be either! We have a #6/#65/#77 ranked Teams in 1/2/3 places in our bracket. The top one has gotten 45 laps; next one 36 laps; & last one 19 laps so it isn't near as much. These Epic quests are too much for any TEAM without deep pockets!

    @leonardo719 Unfortunately if everyone that was on the Team halfway through & got the Race Monster, some players would help out a lot until that halfway point and then do nothing after that! We kicked 5 before the Race was over since none of them made any contribution nor attacked in War! We only require 1 good quality attack in the first 2 Wars so it was pretty simple to do it!

    @Haka-Taka If the Race is only for Top 1000 Teams, then that is fine but a TEAM RACE for all players is just that. I am sure we are all grateful we can earn the Race Monster at 10 Laps but these Epic Quests are out of hand in this one! We have a "Core Group" of 15 with 6-10 newer players to the Team under Level 40. Your way of thinking (forgive me if I don't read it correctly) says no Team should be in the Race unless they are 30-strong with gemmers & players who all play 100% of the time. That may happen with Race Teams, but your average Team I would say isn't that way.

    The Stamina Request thing if you mean gifts is all screwed up! I have 10 active players on my Friend List who are active in the Game. I might get Stamina from them once a week now if then. They say they are sending it & I sent twice a day & they don't get it either!

    @Haka-Taka but who has the time to do the 20-25 nodes of the Cell Dungeons to earn 12 gems? We can't spend Elementium to speed up breeding... Maybe someone with no life can spend hours doing dungeons but even retired, I have better things to do! Survival Dungeons aren't even a possibility for players with less than Level 100+ monsters! I rarely do them & I just hit Level 127 today! Most of my Runes run Level 5-7 with a few 8s as I get them in "package offers". Sorry but the average player can't even begin to do all the dungeons. I maxed out the Adventure Map a year ago...and there hasn't been a new Adventure Map Island in 8 months.

Several were mad they didn't get any Team or Individual Rewards. I had posted every 3-4 hours that they must qualify to get them. Then I was told I was a "mean terrible Lead that kept the Team Rewards away from them".... So it was my fault they didn't place monsters or attack in the TBG or War? Sure it was...
