I was getting more visors and fewer controllers but visors just stopped dropping completely. Argh.

Thanks one and all. I’m calmer now- realizing it’s only a game. What does not winning the Academy mean- I have the upcoming Tower challenge to frustrate me! Lol
Thank you Sunburnt- you always have a clearer vision of the game and computers than I. I have 16 bots and 164 on the leaderboard 101 through 500 get the same prize- so I’m coasting now!
Funny, I just played a round and got no visors or remotes. Then I looked for bots and couldn’t find any. I finally looked on the bottom for the battle bots screen- and it wasn’t there! I closed the game and restarted and there it was- still no remotes or visors. But at this point, I’m following Ohlas and relaxing. 
Sorry to hear Mark frustrated enough to leave- and I hope Gameloft reconsiders their change of course for DMK. 
Thank you everyone- one of the enjoyable things about DMK is sharing thoughts and strategies here- if we agree or not. 
And once again , in the words of the Cheshire Cat- 
“Have I gone mad? I’m afraid so. 
You are entirely bonkers,
but I will tell you a secret...
all the best people are.”
Have fun!

The chest gave me a Baymax hat stand. Oh well. Can't get any remotes. Fairy godmother was useless gathering tokens. This event definitely WASN'T worth waiting for. 
Dread the tower challenge.

Enjoying "Best Fiends"...at least you continue from where you left off. Don't have to buy things to catch up like in this game!!
Boo to enchantment. Stupid stupid idea

You know you've frustrated your users when you've caused Mark M to quit the game for the eighth time.

This happens to me quite often during mini-events. Roughly 1/5 of the time I load or reload, the countdown box disappears and any characters who might've collected tokens for the event come back empty. A game (not system) restart always fixes it - at least, I don't recall it happening twice in a row.

It's particularly frustrating when I do the large morning gathering before I notice, then I'm kicking myself for all the tokens missed (especially the golden trophy events). Aversion therapy means I'm getting better at checking the countdown timer is there before I do anything, but it stil caught me once on this event already :D

I mean what is this? Either this dude is cheating, extremely lucky, or blew a LOT of gems.

First failed attempt at getting an item in this game, ever.
You know it’s hard when I have managed to put in the time to get Grumpy, Ariel’s Comfy Costume, Goofys pirate costume, any of it.

I’m sure the Animation Academy will be available somewhere down the line and I’ll have to be patient but I feel for players that haven’t been here since the beginning. The missed opportunities just keep building and building...but then again you eventually run out of room anyway so there is one thing that isn’t building(building buildings 🤫😉).
