LevrantLo, at least you got Artoba. I will take it tomorrow but only with luck. Honestly this time I'm not even bothered, but I congratulate them. Being able to sell so many expensive metal dragons was not a business for everyone. Well done GL :-)
I'm sorry for my english

On the last day of the previous Ancient event, I started with 476/500 pieces of Pokra and I was willing to spend more gems and money to complete the collection to get Oyar. And I was also done with the double trouble game. Not this time though. Not even close. I have opened 1,078 ancient chests and my Zephujin count is 288/500. As far as the double trouble meter goes, I am collecting for Chapter 21 (8/30). If I manage to complete the last chapter and buy the battle to get Copper, that will be nice. There is no time left for Jellyfish and I am not wasting more gems and money just to try for a dragon which is as good as Ba Jiao Gui. I liked the Bingo mini-game (with all the dragons and extra stuff) and I am afraid it will be tweaked (read "messed up") for the next Ancient event. I'll take it easy now and wait  ;)

Anyone has any idea how many mallet stones are necessary to buy the las battle for Copper?

The one at chapter 20 I was not able to win as their levels were 93 (with poison) - 90 (ancient) - 93 (with poison)
My levels were 90 (Icecream) - 84 (Cosmos) - 45(Agent)

No matter how many DF potions I used I lost the battle as DF do almost nothing on them. I had to buy with 500 mallet stones to go over.

Considering in the last one I have the same team and I have to fight 92 (Mountain) - 90 (Artoba) - 92(Mountain) I guess is out of the question to win. So I need to know how many mallet stones are needed. That if I will get enough double troubles (currently at 17/30).

It is unbelievable that for an epic dragon I have to pay the last 2 chapters. Really dissapointing.

I'm grad there are people that enjoyed this event, probably I would've enjoyed it too if I was able to get any dragon in 1shot or get all 4 of them. But I didn't and investing money for a gamble is not my type. I will totally rething the way I play this game, if I will continue playing.
There are still few areas where I can play but I'm sure GL is creative enough to mess up these areas too.

Finally I skipped with gems the last chapter and paid 500 mallet stones for the battle. So if you wonder is the same price to win the last battle for Copper.

Ok,

Last update for me the game is finished. I spent all gems (around 7000) since the beginning of this event to end with 435 pieces of Zephujin and no Koth'ez.
When I was down to 2500 I said I will save them for later but then I said, what later?
And I spent all of them. The entire event I got only one piece of Zephujin except once I got 40 pieces.

This event is a complete waste. I spent everything because there is no point in playing anymore or recharging anything.
The line was crossed.

But hey, I have hundreds of useless decorations, yay NOT.

Well the  last Big A  event I  made  it to the  very last milestone..
I only made  it 46 of  the 52  this  time.I didn't  even make  it  to the  food ..I was  Bummed  as I  really wanted  that  last milestone  dragon Chevalier ....And  of  course  the gems...
But with all that going on I wasn't  going to put more $$ into the  event .Then the  shrine and  a  coin here  and there.

I'll get that dragon someday ... I did  get all the  others  and  a  mess  to ascend .. I don't  normally do that .
But I felt, I  had  all dragons  ,so when they came  back up in the  chest I took the  dragon instead of a ticket..

As  far  as  the event I still like  it , I just didn't  like  what GL did  to it ..
I was  fine  the  way it was, as far  as the  rnd was , but  they tweeked  it to really make  it harder..
Which I guess  I can understand  them doing that , but it made  it very frustrating ..

Of  course  I'll play it again when it comes  back around..
I enjoyed  the  Bingo ,once  I had  to change  the  way I  would  normally play .
And  the  prizes  were  great whole  dragons  ,And  most I didn't  have  already ...
I think I  only missed 1 or  2  cards  in the  very start of  the  event,Just ran out of  malletstones..
At first ...

Well, the event is finally over. All in all I enjoyed it. I actually like the Dragon Dice game, but maybe I just like board games in general. I loved the addition of the Bingo game too.

Of the Ancients available I was only able to get Ashkelon. I'm not a free player but not a big spender either. I bought the Clam (on sale), the Totem (on sale), and the Extra Den (also on sale); nothing else. Going in I already knew I'd never get Zephujin (got 372 pieces) or Kot'ez. I was kind of hoping that I would get lucky with Artoba but no. Currently I'm at 447 pieces for Artoba. I worked my butt off but couldn't make the 270th chest and the game would not give me any more lucky drops. So that's it I'll walk away with just Ashkelon. But for me I would still consider the event a success. My expectations going in were low (easier to avoid disappointment that way). Ultimately, all I wanted out of the Ancient event was 1 Ancient and I got that. Plus I got 12 other brand new Dragons out of the event. So I'm a happy girl.

My only criticism would be with the Double Troubles. I was only able to make it to Chapter 18. I really would have liked to be able to finish the story at least. I hope GL tweaks that aspect of the game so it's easier to make it to the final battle.

Well, here's how we did - 
Only 4 of us played this time; my youngest decided to sit this one out, as he doesn't like Metal.

I got every dragon that I didn't already have, except for the Jellyfish. The thing is, that stinks, because I *really* wanted that one.
Daughters and hubby got Artoba and Ashkelon (from getting all Dice Chest dragons), plus a bunch of other dragons throughout the event.

Now, my opinions - 
While I did well, I didn't find this one as fun as the First Fire. I have 2 huge problems with this event.

1. Multiple piece drop rates were terrible. Throughout most of the event, we only got 1x pieces. Compared to the last Ancient event, where 25x and 50x pieces were fairly prevalent. 

2. The number of Ancient Tickets was far too low. This is the same as last Ancient event, so it might be a design choice that make these dragons "Premium" dragons. If that's the case, then fine. If F2P players are intended to be able to easily get these, though, it's a fail.

If these two (or one, if the Ticket dragons are meant to be Premium) things are fixed, then the next Ancient event will be fun again.

@tigershark

I finished the event with 5 gems, and I have no intention to recharge any penny into the game so the game is kind of finished for me considering everything now is changing. 
The dungeon is probably easy only if you have 12 divine/ancient dragons at max level
The clan became a chore and the only one I enjoy is Clan Siege as you can receive help from your clan mates every 3 hours and that is a great help when you are working and you're able just to get in and attack the opponent during your small breaks.
The boss Challenge eliminates Legendary element more and more often, especially after the first 2 rounds.
The DD I don't play due to the casino aspect where you never know what you can get.
The Gather Gold is impossible for me
The Dinner Time only has extremely old dragons and repetitive on top of that
The Divine you have to pay and they make it harder and harder
The Ancient event I just saw that spending over 7.000 gems (including the milestones from the event) and was not able to get Zephujin and Kothez. It is true that 2500 were spent on my hatchery but the rest of them were spent on the event.
Arena is also impossible for me at this moment and even though I have over 2000 energy for Arena it makes no sense to even try to get those prizes as I will face dragons that I can't beat.
So in this case what else can I play in this game?
EL maybe. and wait for Clan Sige once a month or so.
That is all I have left for now.

All others are pure casino. And we all know that when you go to Casino, the house always wins. I refuse to be that dumb to believe otherwise. That's why there will be no other penny spent on this game from my side. Enough is enough.
