Mirage - 3 Stage Event 04/04/2023

Post by Decker »

Here we go again, 3 stage event for an exploding Easter egg!

Low upgrade requirements to start, but we know from past experience these soon rocket.

Affinities seem okay, hunter, infravision & incendiary, XP & cash boosts and a +25% crit hit.

Hopefully the 3rd stage will have a credible weapon this time as right from the start it's taking out all enemies in 1 hit, which is at least a bit promising.

Gear set, hmm, probably not for me, SM's for spec ops...
Turns out I wasn't just old and grumpy - I was right to be pissed right off!

Your evaluation is right on. At this low stage the weapon does look promising. Of course, Stage 3 will be the true measure.

Hopefully, the armor and weapon will create a winner in the "explosive" category of requirements when those pop up. It is worth a try and I already started a 1-day Deputy. Even if the weapon fails to impress, the four 13* SMs are welcome perks.

I see GL still have no QC, Helicopters are classed as Vehicles so one has to wonder what the damage ratings are ??
But have to agree, the 'Explosvie Attribute could be useful.

Incendiary doesn't seem to work on the first shot with copters, no further damage with the first shot, another anomaly with affinities...

Ha, ha. Last event the vehicles were called helicopters. What a bunch of rubes. It is minor but still an indicator of QC as Kiwi observes.

And on we go.

I don't see this as unusual anymore, shows what degree of confidence GameLoft have instilled in me :lol:

Can't say that the giant egg taking up the screen makes finding targets easy. At least the targets are highlighted. Still, zooming is an absolute requirement.

Hard to get used to hitting the target with one shot and trusting the burn delay while switching to another target. Have to go back and check if the original target had enough damage to burn up.

:lol: I know, I'm doing the same, seems to work okay in the event though (except the first shot on helios).

Stage 1 complete, this one's timing of last chapter open and finishing time is close cut and not good in my time zone, or for the majority of Europe, which is strange as we're on the EUR server :? my only option was to use rubies to open the last stage, hmmm, anyone else think that was planned :roll:

Odd. My Chapter 9 just opened and there is still one day remaining. Chapter 10 opens in 12 hours (now 5:30 AM, PDT). Also on EUR sever but the West coast of the US.

Still, with only an 8 hour difference from GMT this shouldn't happen. Are you being targeted?

20 1/2 hours to go, so it would be early hours of the morning for finish and late at night for chapter 10 opening, usual GameLoft not doing the math or doing it their way :roll:

And on to stage 2, affinities, infravision, hunter (+100% in PvP) and incendiary (burns at 250% for 5 seconds) which seems to work on helios this time, +90% cash, +90% gold & +35% crit hit.

I''ve managed a couple of upgrades with carried over parts but can see me needing a load more and it's very unbalanced in drops.

I tried the first mission before upgrading and it seems to pack a punch, if it wasn't for the horribly slow reload I might even get excited :D

If Symbiosis does not get added in the last phase, this one will end up in the cupboard like most of these 3 stage weapons now.
