Not going to reach copter in time

If you play often, you should be able to get the copter. I already have it, with no premium assistance.
This discussion has been closed.
And 1 stargate. I think it's doable for freemium players by the deadline.
I agree, I think I am going to come up short this time as well. And I always play multiple times per day, and I have 4 premium trick or treaters. And I bought the portal as a nice decoration, but it gives me an additional 20-30 ray guns per day. I am at 5253 right now. Of course, I was originally going off the first chart posted on here, with the incorrect daily goal. So I was not working as diligently as I should have been, I guess. It has been difficult to get this compared to past events, without a doubt.
I think the hunting license probably makes a difference. More so than the portal, without a doubt.
My boyfriend does the same but he will end this round tomorrow, easily. The only difference I see is that he has a couple of neighbors who have few other neighbors so he gets a lot of gremaliens. I'm sure it helps to have feeder towns too. That's the only big difference I see. He also has way more of every kind of candy. Jerk
Sent you a PM, neighbor.
I got the copter this morning, but I can see how freemium players can easily miss out on it.
He's been just squeaking by in there. One premium Trick-or-treater, and the town has 15 neighbors ... and the Rigalien Hunting License, which gives him the same amount of rayguns as if he had 30 neighbors and no license.
The other two towns are going to finish on the 30th. Same in those two towns -- low number of neighbors offset by the license, and only one Premium Trick or Treater in each one. Whew.
The tribal hit will go where the blank space is and the die sign (3rd phase) will be at the Ray gun area (replace the trees). Hope I have enough stuff to replace the stone walls with the purple ones
but I am coming 14th our of 100 on my leaderboard and still might not get there in time...a lot have given up it seems as they trail further and further behind
and my friends list is pretty fresh, I' deleted players who don't play (and added more) a few months ago
so by these stats I estimate that 80% of tapped out players won't finish this...that's bad :?
I hope I get there in time as i'm putting a lot of work in and am staying up till 1am to visit my neighbours now :? if only we could visit neighbours every 20 hours (so that I could comfortably visit every 24 without the time getting pushed later and later each day
maybe EA's entire business strategy is that only 30% of users actually play the game and the rest just give up what morons work at EA, seriously
I do play several times a day and have about 40 active neighbours that I visit daily. With that its possible to get the copter. I think that EA designs each event that you can finish it without donoughts (but not necessarily get _all_ items).
So if you fall short, then doublecheck that you have 40+ active friends. Plant your eggs in your friends towns as late as possible (just before you go to bed) so that you have the best chance ur aliens dont get squished and try to have all your kids trick-or-treating 3 times a day. Then you should succeed...
Think I'm just going to admit defeat for the copter and just stash the bags for the next phase instead. Will admit that the copter wasn't high on my must unlock list.
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.
So it's doable, folks. Go! Get to the choppa!
