Have I got enough time left?

3200? Yes you can make it. Or at least get close enough that it will only cost a few donuts.

    it is unfortunate. I have seen this trend developing over the last couple events. If you are not playing with a few premium characters and don't invest in some premium items then you can not complete each act. My freemium town can not get through the acts any more. Using the exact same schedule in my premium town I got Sgt Skinner 2 days ago.

    Doubt it. I'm in the same boat. You really had to play this first act perfect from the get go. I lost an entire day because my game wouldn't update until I reloaded it entirely. I'm going to see how close I really am in donuts tomorrow night, but if it's more than 80-ish, screw that.

    Have you got enough time? Yes, but it's tight if you're a freemium player. You'll need 3200 more dark matter in the next day-and-a-half. And you need to make eight visits over that time (in four hour intervals) and one neighbour cycle to gather enough dark matter for the final prize. There's just enough time left in the event for ten visits so it's possible. But if your work doesn't accomodate a four-hour check in cycle or you actually want to sleep more than four hours at a time it'll be difficult.

    Dark matter needed:
    24,000 - 20,800 = 3200
    3200 - 178 (yield from one neighbour cycle) = 3022
    3022/8 = 378

    378 dark matter is the minimum you need per four-hour cycle to get the last prize.

    Dark matter collection per four-hour cycle:

    Character jobs: 33 x 5 = 165
    Robots in town: 80

    SciFighter game formula: base + (3 x # seconds survived) + # robots killed
    So the max would be 162 (50 + 60 + 52 = 162), and the minimum you need is 133 (50 + 60 +23 = 133).
    Maximum freemium four-hour yield: 165 + 80 + 162 = 407
    Minimum four-hour yield needed: 165 + 80 + 133 = 378
    probably you'll fall in between these two extremes with about 390 each cycle (35 robots killed in the game).

    8 visits at the minimum needed SciFighter score (game won with 23 robots killed) will give you 3024 plus a round of neighbour visits (178) gives you 3202 dark matter. At the maximum SciFighter score (52) every time, you'd have 3256 (3434 with a neighbour round). Not enough to cut out a visit rotation but more than enough to unlock Sgt. Skinner.

    Probably bit late, as the last daily task (before Act 2) have been revealed, but you can get 1100 diamonds from a daily.

    I got it two times, sadly both after I exceeded 24.000...

    if you don't need 'em to get the last prize (and can't log in enough to get 3K for a bonus round before act 1 ends), then you might want to just keep those event currency challenges unclaimed until act 2 starts.... they should switch over to the act 2 currency and get you a head start.

    (got one for 1100 in my challenge list right now that I'm saving for act 2)

    I'm just within time limit, got the last prize with 5 hours to go. I cut it very close this time, very surprised as I am sure I was playing at least four times a day and I have a ton of premiums, just none specific for this new event.
