Why was the CCL advertised as helping to fight monsters?!

Prev1
Because she doesn't. The most slots I've seen open at one time is three, but mostly I only get two (you know, except for that 12 hour period I got none). I already have more characters that can fight than open slots, so she's not helping with the event at all in that way.

And she doesn't even earn a premium rate! The only reason I picked up the skin (I already had the character) is because it was advertised for helping with the event but it very literally does NOTHING to help me get ahead. I absolutely would not have picked up the skin had I known this before hand.

You've got someone there making some really bad decisions EA and you better look at some serious damage control sooner than later.

    I've got her fighting one right now, along with three others. At one point I had six monsters.

    Also at some point it looks like you can have multiple people fighting the same monster, I'd imagine she'd come in handy then
  • Yep, I bought her too (mainly because I didn't have her so I got the rebate) but she doesn't seem to help at all.

    That being said, 2 monsters spawn every 4 hours (even when you are not on your device) and you can have a max of 10 monsters at a time (20 hours of inactivity) so she might help a bit if you get 6 overnight...but otherwise, she's not much help.

    To be fair she does help fight the monsters, she just mightn't be a big help to your particular tapping schedule. She'll be a big help to me because I won't be for long periods of time on some days and on others I could log in every hour if I wanted too so she'll be helping keep me under the maximum (10 in case anyone is wondering, 2 spawn every 4 hours)

    I do agree with you about her earning rate though, she should earn an extra 50% like premiums usually do

  • Same here, although I didn't have her to begin with. I saw she helps and I purchased her and was disappointed that after having 4 people fight monsters I could now only have 2, essentially wasting my donuts. Also, I've had her Christmas decoration skin sitting in storage for like 2 years and now when I used it I was disappointed that you can barely see any difference between that and the regular skin. Kinda bummed I got her because I know something better will end up coming out later down the track and I won't have donuts left.
    But we already did it. It took seven hours, but we did it. It's done.

    On the bright side, you at least got a decent deal - basically both a discount on her full price and the skin for free. They usually do do a good job on those types of discounts.

    But for those of us that have her, we got a kind of cool swamp that's underwhelming in size, doesn't seem to have any bonuses (not that the multipliers matter as much any more) and doesn't even give a payout.

    So I spent an additional 110 donuts (on top of having bought her for full price already) and I'm not even getting a premium rate on her battles (wangs chung that after 12 hours of no battles, they only gave me two new monsters. I'd probably be slightly less peeved had I got 6 after all that down time).

    Oh man I didn't think of that, I'm sorry to hear it :( They really missed the mark on some things during this event.

  • I feel like I got ripped off on this one too. Not worth 110 donuts for a skin, an undersized decoration, and she doesn't even give premium help for the event.
  • Now I'm sometimes getting the option to add more than one character to fight a monster...so she might be worth it. Really hating the interface of this event.
  • She's currently beatinf the snots out of a monster now. I believe they should fix the payout as this is premium. Im thinkig they'll do it much like the skins issue during tapball (if my memory serves me correctly)
  • Hopefully she'll be more useful in later stages of the event - looks like some monsters might require 4 characters to fight them. Right now it seems Suzanne the Witch would've been a more useful purchase (and she's also available for a shorter time) however I'll have farmed enough donuts to buy her too by tomorrow, so the impact on my progress will only be small.

    ouch

    so even though I already paid loads of donuts to buy Cat Woman, she is not useful to the event unless i pay another 110 donuts to buy a skin

    so they're making premium characters even more premium...she'd be the most expensive character in the game now?

    ouch...that is a kick to the balls

    you also get a foggy swamp
  • Concur. With the current glitch of only two monsters regardless of time away from game this was a complete waste of donuts.
  • I agree, I don't indulge in premium items too often due to a tight budget, but I saved up my pennies especially for this event so I could get ahead of the game for once instead of dragging behind, (I often end up not gaining all the prizes on offer), and I chose CCL especially for this reason, but she hasn't really made any difference as yet as Ive not had more than 4 monsters max to fight and already have 4 freemium fighters! I am hoping she will come into her own later in the game! I also bought Dr. Hibberts island which although doesn't give ongoing currency, it was worth it just for the initial MAG payout, and it looks pretty cool too :-)
  • The way I see it, we got a character/house for 70 donuts off with a bonus skin (if you didn't already have her). I imagine once the kinks are worked out and once more fighters are allowed to battle the monsters, she will be used more. It's still early in the event.

    Though I do agree with @chrisgyo about paying more money for skin if you already had her. I didn't have her so I'm happy, but if I did have her, I'd be upset too. The least they could have done was add a multiplier to the swamp.

    It's 110 donuts down from 150, not 70

    Yes, but it was originally 180 before this event. They reduced the price to 150 and gave a 40 donut rebate.

    Oh really, in that case I apologize and am pleased to find out I saved even more than I thought I did :smiley:

  • Yea I'm glad I got her but you don't get the swamp if you're buying the character and the skin. Only if you have the character and are buying the skin for 110.
    So you get a swamp bonus for upgrading her lol
    Nothing as loud as the silentmiaow.
  • we should get rewarded for having a premium character to begin with...so she should fight monsters using cats and not cost extra

    otherwise we have little incentive to buy premium characters, may as well just wait till events to see if they're cheaper
