    Final update from me...I was not able to get Rocigon and still had 4 cards left. Toward the end of the event when I knew I couldn't get any more cards, I switched to growing Rainbow Snow Peas instead of Black Lotus Root, and I was getting zero monster coins from food after I made this change.

    When @Fox first announced the changes to this event to introduce the "reverse progressive" (i.e. regressive) coin collection, he provided the following explanation:

    • "The main issue we faced with Challenge coins generation was that some players managed to optimize their resource generation to a point where the balancing for their level was too easy, generating enough coins to complete the event many times.
      Our aim is that all players can collect enough coins to obtain a legendary monster in the Challenge, but we would like to avoid such disparities in balancing.
      We have introduced a system that affects coins generation based on the amount of coins collected so far, with this we expect top coin collectors to have a similar output to players with harder balancings."

    It's very clear at this point that this reverse progressive collection did not address any of these issues or achieve any of the intended goals:

    • Lower level players continue to complete the event many times.
    • Not all players can collect enough coins to obtain a legendary monster.
    • They haven't avoided the disparities in balancing.

    They really need to go back to the drawing board on this one.

    Another update...it has just gotten to the point of being completely ridiculous. I'm been growing lotus root for 2 days with food guardian, and I have 5 cards remaining. My food guardian has ended and because of all the experience from growing food I'm now at level 110. I just collected Lotus Root from my 14 farms and got 35 coins.....35!!!!

    I've calculated that I need 20,000 more coins to get the monster. At this rate, I'll only need another 500+ hours!!!

    So I've gone from 1500 coins collected from food in the first hour, and in the 52nd hour I'm now collecting 35 coins each hour. Hopefully the SP developers can see how absolutely ridiculous this is and will do something about it. It has to be the most frustrating event in the entire game.

    I just wish they would be more transparent about it and post the percentages. Then everyone will know exactly what to expect when they make a purchase. I've played other games with similar chests, but they posted all of the percentages along with the items.

    @fffssdfqrw I personally hated the PVP version of this event. The level I was at for PVP meant I could only win revenge matches, and there weren't enough of those for me to earn a monster. I had a handful of PVP losses as well, which meant I wasn't earning any coins in those situations. The bad thing about the PVP version is people were encouraged to drop to a lower level PVP league so they could win more of their matches...in general this type of strategy shouldn't be encouraged/rewarded.

    Coinage, I remember when my level was in the 60s and 70s...I got lots of good monsters ranked up because of the 72 hour challenge. All I had to do was plan ahead and save up enough gold for the event. Once you get up to level 90 or 100 this event becomes basically impossible unless you get lucky with a card flip.

    In comparison to your experience, I've already spent 1 Billion gold on food and I've only been able to flip 11 cards total.

    Update...my collection rate has dropped to 260 coins per hour for the food collection (all black lotus root with food guardian). In 21 hours my food guardian will end, so that will cut in half. I am working on the 11th card @1747 coins. I'll be lucky if I can flip 2 or 3 more cards before this event ends.

    Yes, I'm aware that I can get him on the next turn, but that has never worked out for me. I did the math, and I still need ~29,500 coins to flip the last card.

    No way I'll get 17 cards. The last 3 cards are 4000, 5000, and 6000 coins.

    Yet again, what was once my favorite event (72-hour challenge) is getting even harder. Based on a YouTube video, I can see that it will take a whopping 35,000 tokens to flip all of the cards! Previously, the hardest option would take about 24,000 coins to complete. That's an increase of nearly 50%!

    If the amount of coins I earned didn't progressively decrease, it might be attainable, but now there's no chance of me getting the monster, even with 3.6 billion gold and the food guardian enabled. Here's what I've experienced from collecting black lotus root with the food guardian enabled (I'm level 108, btw):

    • First food collection: ~1500 coins
    • Second food collection: ~750 coins
    • Third food collection: ~500 coins
    • Currently collecting (on my 9th card): ~300 coins

    This rate will continue to drop as the card cost continues to increase. At this rate I'll be lucky if I am able to flip even 5 more cards.

    This sucks. 😞

    I got 2 level 5 runes as well. I've decided these aren't worth it until/unless we see what the percentages are.
