Its game manipulation. Have a level-8 palace and all the techs to go with that. Then drop your trophies so your fighting players with level-2 and 3 palaces. You only need a handful of troops to win a VERY FAST battle, and your troops will be remade by the time you finish the previous battle. Its non stop cheating, and its Easy to see who is doing it.
just look at the top 50 players.
I leveled my statue up to 38 pretty quickly, still leveling it up. with the double stars boost on the statue, Im getting around 110 stars per battle I win, and yeah, when I got the on fire status, I did multiple instant battles to keep the onfire status, raised my rank from 50,000 to 3,000 in about 2 and a half hours, 0 stars to 900 in that same timeframe.
I have been continually upgrading and activating the gold boost. It is getting expensive now. I am level 41 and the upgrade cost just increased from 75k to 100k. The boost is currently 50k, so it will probably increase as well when the statue finishes upgrading. The upgrade time is now an hour instead on 30 minutes.
Every time I go back to the game I've gained trophies from people deliberately losing attacks against me. I'm now being given higher level players when I want to attack so I stand no chance unless I start dropping trophies myself. This will be essential after the event because I'll just end up being cannon fodder for Level 9 players.
Yeah - I nixed this event, a waste of time and loot. Boosted enough to get a little bit of jade.
I already hit the 5000 stars needed for the first princess upgrade (Mystic) and completed the quest for it. Does it take effect right away or will my princess only upgrade once the event's done.
Second, I'm aiming to finish in the top 50 and if not I'm pretty much guaranteed top 500 at this point. Will my princess get upgraded to Jade/Dragon once the event's done replacing the Mystic one?
http://prntscr.com/2qwen4 so i have level 100 en no way you get 500 stars evry time you go to a citty (lower level) you get les stars you only get 100% bonus if you pay 250 jades.
the contest was started en ther were players with 50k stars in the first hours so i think its not possible with out cheating or its a account of zynga
"Within a few hours" is a terrible exaggeration though and either you got the event rolled out to you late or you're just making that up. It's now been over a day that the event has been open and I assure you that it's very possible to get up into the top ranks. You just have to be willing to spend some $$ to gain that advantage. I'm getting between 350-450 stars per fight now (I'm lucky enough that my Palace is only level 5) so yea it took an obscene amount of battles to do it but I've just now hit 100,000 stars and none of that was "cheated" or "rigged" in any way.
Edit: BTW I never bought the x2 bonus, I've been using only the 50% one for coins.
