    Are "buying" the upgrades the only way to level up or do you also progress to level 2 by crafting level 1 items? Been holding off on crafting until I figure this out.

    "Buying" the upgrades is the only way. I crafted almost everything available at level 1 so far, and it contributed nothing to level 2 progress.

    Yes. I have crafted everything possible on this level and the meter has not budged. Seems an impossibly high count of craft items to level up if a single level only moves the bar one notch though. In the past we earned crafting items at a better rate. I hope it improves soon.

    I'm going to try and do the opposite. Level up to 3 and then craft at the end of the event like always.

    Questions!!

    1) What is the purpose of the "Quantity: X/X" for each item? Do i really have to craft them in order to progress?

    The next description "First Y award Z Club Card Points on placement", this Y value is always greater than X.

    What does this mean? The first X number of a particular craftable contributes to leveling up the casino, while the first Y number contributes to CCP?


    2) Can i level up the casino using the 2 Upgrade Tiers alone? It makes logical sense, one Tier for each level.


    As with most events, the game sometimes forces me to craft items which i struggle to appreciate. And i can't sell them, so they end up in my inventory. I prefer the freedom to make my own choices what to craft. I'm afraid a Daily Challenge would require me to craft an item i do not need. (I haven't searched for the list of Casino Daily Challenges)

    Thank you :oops:
    1: its the amount of stuff you can craft fir level one. as you level up, you can craft more of said item, the Y stands for the amount of items that will generate player points (Z), which are needed for further crafting supplies and a tower with skins. you can check that out at the casino kiosk which you get after buying a premium item, craft something, or win a prize
    2: each upgrade only gives you 1 tile at the level up bar. you have to buy them 10 times to reach level 2, so that may take some time

    Great explanation, thank you! NOW I understand this!

    Kinda stuck. Crafted everything I can for level one. Key chains etc completely dried up.

    Only thing I have left to cash in are the Courtesy Chips. Should I hold onto these or is it just as good to cash them for red chips now?

    Well I have a huge problem with the crafting. Although having enough items to craft, the button does not appear.
    Anybody has an idea?

    I would only cash in chips if you NEED to. If you're on-target to finish the act in time, I would save them. If there are bonuts at the end of the act, you might want be in a position to use them to top-up, but again, only if you need to use them.

    Have you crafted anything yet? You are limited in the number of first-tier items you can craft. The limit gets raised when you upgrade to Tier 2. If you have already reached your limit, you won't be able to craft until you upgrade. That's where I'm at right now.

    Thanks Happy - sage advise!

    Not sure how I'm gonna level up though because key chains and coasters are simply not happening for me.
    Only 2 squares filled in so far, despite being pretty active.

    Grind on, I guess!

    Well question is then how do you get to Tier 2?

    I want to apologize for any complaints on crafting being slow I have previously complained - I would like to instead move those to this event - the crafting is terrible - it takes waaaaaaay a long time to gather stuff and I fear I will never reach level 2............ I usually can clear an event quite well, but this one has me a little worried so far.
    PM me- I DO need Good Neighboreenos currently

    Does anyone know if the crafting tier goes to level 2 when Act 2 starts or do we have to physically go through the upgrading process to reach the higher tiers?

    It says that to upgrade you need to donate crafting resources... How do you donate them?

    In the crafting area itself there are two upgrade options with 50 keychain or 40 coasters to upgrade it 1 step. You need to do this 10 times to upgrade to the next level.

    Is the only way to get Cocktails and the silver tickets from the Daily tasks or from a players club milestone?

    coasters (purple thingy) is for coins only?

    They are called "Courtesy Chips" and are only used for getting chips of the current act color in the crafting menu.

    Some people I know are hoarding them for Act 3 but I use them as I get them. I figure that 100 chips is at least 1 less coin I have to spend on getting the next prize. :lol:
