The wheel started to develop holes today and/or disappeared all together. Spins were also yielding blanks. The screen pics on these next few messages are provided for the record.

This next series of three pics shows the wheel, the spinning wheel options and the reward all in "stealth" mode.

Thought it might be best if these were added to this thread to keep everything together

Spin the wheel - Bounty Cascade (4) event

Tue Jan 12, 2021 11:45 am
.
Executive summary

"Cato Frozen" weapon*
"Bounty Cascade" single stage event**
Date range: January 11 to 25, 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 on this event, 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. * The weapon was identified as a Sniper weapon (not "exotic sniper") when the event opened and for the first three days of the event - see link below for details.
e. ** The event was definitely not rolled out error free. At the time of writing this post initially there were still issues - some of which are detailed in the following thread: viewtopic.php?f=2031&t=710718
f. January 11 to 13, 2021 me and other players in this part of the world - across all versions of the game - were having problems just getting the game to run and to stay connected. There are other threads covering this but a sample of faults impacting StW can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=2031&t=658934&p=4109482#p4109482 
g. When items are spun they do not always add to the total - I have observed in this event on several occasions. See notes from previous events in this regard.
h. The resetting of video watching and spin opportunities appears to be at ~ GMT 0001 daily this time round.
i. The ten minute reduction timer video opportunity was available when the event started and has been evident on multiple occasions since. I have noticed that, often, a video is watched but the timer does not reduce by ten minutes.
j. The chapter timers in this event are longer than 24 hours (they are 30 hours) - see the other thread for details. At the last edit of this message, and in the absence of information from Gameloft, it was difficult to know if this was deliberate. Likewise, the weapon upgrade requirements were not the usual 10+1 but a full upgrade seems to be required to complete the event.


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 - this is why I keep doing these posts.
3. There are three slots on the wheel that contain gold when the relevant consumables are maxed - see above for comments on this. 

Data summary
Total
 spins: 170
Spin batch sizes (in order of occurrence): 11, 11, 12, 12, 12, 11, 1, 11, 11, 11, 1, 1, 12, 11, 9, 11, 11 and 11

Spin the wheel - Tokyo Nights event

Tue Feb 09, 2021 12:38 am
.
Executive summary

"Spark Plug" exotic handgun weapon
"Tokyo Nights" single stage event
Date range: February 8 to 22, 2021 

Notes / Comments
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 commenting on this event, however, this thread is about the Spin the Wheel function only.
c. The event appeared to be rolled out error free initially - see also point g. (below) in this regard. In comment only: If this is a new event format then Gameloft need to be thanked because it is an improvement on the old one with regards to time pressure and back-buffing impact as far as I can tell.
d. When items are spun they do not always add to inventory (i.e. they are not yielded). See notes from previous posts above in this thread for more information.
e. The resetting of video watching and spin opportunities appears to be at ~ GMT 0001 daily this time round.
f. The ten minute reduction timer video opportunity was available when the event started and has been evident on multiple occasions since. I have noticed that, often, a video is watched but the timer does not reduce by ten minutes. I have also noticed that Decker's favourite bug has returned: i.e. when a pack opening opportunity is identified as "free" but it isn't actuially free - see screen pic.
g. The overall event time is 14 days (similar to the last event) and chapter timers in this event appear to be 30 hours -  in the absence of information from Gameloft, it is difficult to know if this is deliberate and/or a new normal for exotic weapon events. Likewise, we appear to perhaps be in unchartered territory, the weapon upgrade milestones are at the commencement of each chapter (from 2 upwards) and the last one is before Mission 5 in Chapter 10. A full upgrade was not required to complete the event (10+1 vs. full upgrade was the controversy). Of note: 4/9/14/19/24 parts required per upgrade increment is noted as unusual. Ref:

Are you guys at least getting the 10 minute timer reduction videos this time round?

Timer is present...but sometimes requires a restart.

It's not an overly reliable feature of late at this end either. See above notes in previous three events.

Spin the wheel - Jungle Ghouls event

Tue Mar 09, 2021 2:46 am
.
Executive summary

"Lucky Barrage" exotic weapon
"Jungle Ghouls" single stage event
Date range: March 8 to 22, 2021 

Notes / Comments
a. All the normal (common to every event) qualifiers and other notes are deliberately not repeated in this post - please see above in this thread for these.
b. This thread is about the Spin the Wheel function only. There are other threads commenting on reward based video advertisement opportunities. There are also other threads on the weapon and this event, for example:
viewtopic.php?f=2031&t=710718&p=4129436#p4129436
viewtopic.php?f=2031&t=658934&p=4129900#p4129900
c. The event appeared to be rolled out error free initially (again, the comment is that 30 hour chapter timers might be the new norm). The weapon upgrade requirements per level increment were 24/31/38/45/52 (again, in the absence of information from Gameloft, it is difficult to know if this is an error or not - maybe the last event with 4/9/14/19/24 was the error?).
d. The resetting of video watching and spin opportunities appears to be at ~ GMT 0001 daily this time round.
e. The ten minute reduction timer video opportunity was available periodically throughout the event. The reliability of this function is sometimes annoying but details are not recorded here.
f. Instances of "The transaction could not be completed. Please try again later" (Ttcnbc.Ptal) have been significant.
g. The last summary of StW results can be found here:
viewtopic.php?f=2031&t=702771&p=4081056#p4081056
h. One theory on how to possibly improve StW yields can be found here:
viewtopic.php?f=2031&t=702771&p=4079976#p4079976
i. I don't know if it was coincidence or not but once I won the weapon (on March 19, 2021) the number of spin opportunities decreased temporarily - see spin batch size numbers below.
j. It is widely recognised that there is a difference in both yields and spin opportunities across different platforms - this is why I keep doing these posts.

Spin batch sizes (in order of occurrence): 11, 1, 11, 11, 1, 11, 11, 10, 1, 1, 11, 11, 11, 1, 11, 10, 8, 7, 4, 12 and 11
