    I think the hunting license probably makes a difference. More so than the portal, without a doubt.

    i wish I had read up on what the portal would do before buying. I would have stuck with the pass only.

    I'm 400 away from the copter which is about 60 donuts, was going to spend it on it as I do like the deco but eventually decided against it. The donuts may be necessary in the next phase and I can still technically craft it in te next phase.
    Plus i live in hope that if I can complete the phase early EA let us choose to earn the currency we lack in( as I can't see us earning donuts due to the significant amount given already) which may let me earn the prize myself

    I don't understand why you are having so much trouble attaining it. I only play once a day, bought one portal and never bought the license and reached the copter last night. I think that leaderboard is bullshite, I have been ranked 20th and lower the entire time.

    I have to say you're lying! It is impossible to gain 7100 ray guns by playing once each day for 12 days. That's impossible

    Say what you want, I know when I play.

    The rigellian license thing is actually more helpful than you think, if you bought it day one you basically doubled your friend total. 1800 as opposed to the 900. It sounded like nothing day 1 but actually is quite good
    Wish I'd bought it now as I would have the copter

    Without being rude mathematically he's right, you've done some witchcraft if you got 7100 in 12 days playing once a day.

    I have to agree, there's no way you'd make it playing once a day. Only one lot of ToT bags so would be no where near crafting any prizes unless you're using donuts, you'd only get 1 round of aliens which would be 96 plus the 90 from friend visits, plus crushing gremaliens say 10 for that plus what u get out of treat bags another say 30? Total: 226 at the most no more than 300. You need over 600 a day according to the chart.

    Not included the portal as don't know what that pays out.

    I accomplished this because every single spaceship I destroyed, every one, dropped 50 ray guns, and I was accumulating eggs like crazy. I was never awarded a Human Test Tube, doughnuts or a Rigellian bush, just tons of eggs and missiles. I thought everyone else was getting tons of eggs as well.

    Yes, bought my lisence on day 1. I definitely see the value. The portal though - 6 aliens/8hrs- wasn't really worth it. It's a cool decor but had I read up on it first, I wouldn't have purchased.

    Not trying to to sound rude here. But WOW i can not believe you guys are not getting all of the prizes. I have 3 towns 1 my main town and spending donuts, and 2 my of feeder towns (not spending donuts) and I have got all of the prizes. So I do not know what you guys are doing wrong? Yea I play every day all day. Slower time at work time but I still have it all. You have to log on every few hours a day for about 3 to 5 min an day and tap. It is not that hard to do it. Again not trying to harsh your gig man. But work with the system and go with it. Then there is the time were you go friend surfing for 90 points a day also.


    Peace out and good luck with the rest of the event.

    Thanks.............................

    I just got it with 5 hours to go.

    Multiple logins per day, some days able to send kids out a third time, always visit neighbors... This is a grueling event.

    Now, can I keep this up for the next phase?

    Did you send grem-aliens between your towns? From what I've gathered by reading posts here, this is actually a huge advantage in this phase since untapped grem-aliens give 4 ray-guns, twice as much as squashing a Rigellian. Also, being able to log in 5 times a day, once every 4 hours, will make all the phases quite easy, but not everyone can do this (I for one likes to sleep more than 8 hours a day, if possible).

    Since I don't have feeder towns, I've been dropping eggs in neighbor towns and hoping that they drop some back (and they mostly have). I will have to tap on them to see who sent them (so I can send it back), so it's not the most efficient use of eggs, at least compared to having feeder towns.

    I just hope people are aware of the glitch where if you don't log back in within 4 hours of dropping eggs, you get maximum currency for the grem-aliens regardless of whether your neighbor tapped them or not - if everyone does this, then everyone can get maximum credit and can still tap grem-aliens to find out who sent them in order to reciprocate (plus won't reach the Rigellian limit).

    I play 3-4x/day and just made it about an hour ago. The reason for this being that each tap this time around only produced a maximum of 2 ray guns, whereas the previous phase produced 3 probes per tap.

    Currently, I'm sitting on about 650 each of the eggs and the fences, and almost 800 gummi bears. As soon as I'm sure I can get the Rigellian queen, I'll craft the spooky house.

    I'm also trying to figure out what to spend my next batch of donuts on. I'm freemium, and have the volcano lair, ray gun, and devil Flanders. I've got 58 donuts, and leaning towards something that will give the town a bonus, so I can demolish some houses I've been farming. They've come out with several expensive items over the last few levels, and I'm able to save enough over a few weeks to get them, but $10 mill is completely ridiculous.

    I am basically to the same point as you are now. I am at 6624 now, after having a very good friend and neighbor send me as many gremaliens as she could.

    I think the biggest variable in all of this was actually how many you got from shooting down UFO's. I was really hoping to get some the past few days, but it seems I was always getting candy corn and bronze or silver treat bags. I haven't got 50 ray guns from shooting down a UFO in at least a week. I think that slowed my progress as much as anything.

    I could buy now for 75 donuts. But I am going to wait until the last minute.

    I guess you can craft it later, but it will cost a large amount of broken Easter fences, 200, 500 candy corn, and 300 pumpkins. So that is a pretty steep price. I think buying it in donuts now is cheaper.

    I needed 440 4 hours ago and I just got it with 4 hours to spare!
    Got 7 of rockets in the 10 bags of trick or trickers and used them on friends and got the 50 ray guns on each one. Then I picked up 54 ray guns from the eggs and the rest came from clicking in my own town and from the bags

    I got rockets i can't use. Been through my friend list twice, ufos just aren't coming. Nor getting many eggs paying back. Trick or treaters won't finish again in time. Still few hundred away. Missed again. So demoralizing for a freemium.

    Booo.
    All my designs look unfinished because i can't place as many plants, streetlights, and fences as i would like. PLEASE REMOVE THE LIMIT, EA!

    I have tried to do this free (not portal or pass). I play multiple times a day, I have visit the max number of friends you can go to to get the ray guns everyday and I collect treat bags twice a day. Despite all of this I will not be able to get the copter in time. The only way possible for a free player to be able to reach these goals is if they get the 50 ray gun bonus every single time they shoot a spaceship in friends towns. I on ly got this bonus 2 or 3 times and instead got lots of bronze treat bags. Total ****.

    I'm going to be 114 short. I guess having to take a day off from the game did it. I just counted my friends and there are about 45 that won't make it either. A few are really close like me while others I think have just given up.

    I may get 20-25 eggs per day and only 2-3 Ammos. When I shoot the ufos I mostly get bronze bags. I'm a freemium player, so I won't spend money trying to get it. I usually don't have any problem getting everything, even missing a day her and there. It didn't work this time.

    I guess having a real life doesn't mix with this game. Oh well.

    I have two towns. My town with premiums does not spawn an alien every five minutes. There are times I haven't logged on in 6-8 hours and only have 25 aliens. My town with no premiums definitely gets more aliens, but I've barely get any bags for squishing aliens in the "free town". I have neighbors/friends with over 25k ray guns. I don't know how they do it unless they have a glitch. I have the ray gun and premium kids and only got up to 8100 ray guns. In my free town I am at 4500 ray guns and still need 150 chocolate bars to craft the spooky house.
