Update:

Looks like everything old is new again and StW has been parked.

[I'll be over in the corner having a nervous breakdown wondering why I bothered with all of the above in this thread]

It is because you are a driven, concise, caring person. Give thanks for your traits. I do.

Thank you to you too GWD.

On a lighter note, I think these nice compliments make us 'even' now  :D

(See what I did there? That's the gold standard by which I will measure all of our puns from now on).

And Decker, all I can say is: what happens in Ibiza stays in Ibiza (unless GWD does have those polaroids).

Spin the wheel - Bounty Cascade (3) event

Mon Dec 14, 2020 11:42 am
.
Executive summary
"Tree Cutter" (Mark 1, 2 & 3 weapon)
Three stage exotic weapon event
First stage: Neon Cowboys (Dec 14 - 21, 2020)
Second stage: Murmansk Christmas (Dec 21 - 28, 2020)
Third stage: Snowy Oil Refinery (Dec 28, 2020 - Jan 4, 2021)
​251 spins in total
Summary of data below
Date range: December 14, 2020 to January 4, 2021


Notes
a. This post was updated (periodically) throughout the event - the last time it was updated can be found at the bottom of this post.
b. There are other threads started on the "Tree Cutter" (Mark 1, 2 & 3) weapons and the three stage exotic event (under the name of "Bounty Cascade", however, this thread is about the Spin the Wheel function only.
c. See above in this thread for other relevant notes - no point repeating them here again.
d. Stage 1 (of this three stage event) appeared to be rolled error free initially. Stage 2 had extraordinarily high upgrade requirements on release on Dec 21, 2020 - these were rectified on Dec 23, 2020. Stage 3 appeared to be rolled out error free also. Players reported some missions in all three chapters being unwinnable in the time allocated without using consumables or the skip button.
e. I have noticed on three occasions so far that when rubies are the result on the wheel they don't always add to the total.
f. I have noticed on two occasions so far that when Supreme Packs are result on the wheel they don't always add to the total.
g. The watch a video for a 10 minute time discount function was operative at the start of this event and intermittently throughout all three stages.
h. Given points e. and f. (above), I have removed reference to the word "yielded" from this post. Just because an item is spun on the wheel does not necessarily mean the item is 'yielded'. If anyone wants more explanation of this please let me know.
i. On December 29, 2020 the wheel started doing a few funny things. Gaps appeared between the items and blanks were yielded. There are screen pics of two instances of this occuring are captured below in this thread.
j. The Victory Day event for this weapon opened on January 1, 2021 but the chapters in Stage 3 of the event were not all open (without hitting the skip button) until January 3, 2021. This timing is a departure from the usual model and is note worthy as being the first time this has happened (to the best of my memory) - other threads discussed this at the time it was noticed.


Event name / Stage name(s) - comment
I picked the name "Neon Cowboys" (above) for Stage 1, "Murmansk Christmas" for Stage 2 and "Snowy Oil Refinery" for Stage 3. The game is displaying "Bounty Cascade" as the event and stage template name. If anyone knows the correct name of these event stages please let me know and I will gladly replace my creative naming with the correct name(s).

Qualifiers
1. All the normal qualifiers are deliberately not repeated in this post - please see above in this thread for these.
2. It is widely recognised that there is a difference in yields and spin opportunities across different platforms - that's the whole purpose of me capturing this data (as a point of comparison for players across regions and platforms).
3. There are three slots on the wheel that contain gold when the relevant consumables are maxed - see above for comments on this.
4. Cash displays on the wheel when gold is maxed.

Stage 1

Total spins: 89
Spin batch sizes (in order of occurrence): 11, 11, 9, 13, 11, 11, 11 & 12

Spin the wheel looks like it's back for the three stage event that just started for the "Tree Cutter" (MK1, 2 & 3 weapon).

 

Nope. Not for Windows - at least my machine.
There must be an reason for the discrepancy to go on for months at a time without being addressed.

I'm calling it early. Ends in 'piracy' and Starts with 'con'. It's got to be. Could 'even' be a new algorithm that targets those with a "G" in their player name.  ;)

In other news: Updates to the StW experience this time round may be more sporadic - staying alive in the cyclone season and somehow trying to get home for Christmas is somewhat of a higher priority. Have already used the deputy on the new event (going in heavy early - just in case) - if anyone needs to know the yields let me know and I'll provide a link to the thread I posted them in.
