Strategy Edit

TimingEdit

Pay attention to the timing of Balloon popping. The Game Days end at 24:00 server time. The Event Days end at 11:00 server time. Use this difference to manipulate when you earn and when you pop the Balloons.

F2P vs. P2PEdit

In this Event the strategies for F2P and P2P players are very different because of what goals can be achieved by each group.

F2P. It is not reasonable to expect to find enough Balloons to Rank 1-3 in all or even any Rounds. The competition from P2P is going to be too intense. There is a small chance of outsmarting enough players in Round 3 to rank high at a cost of reducing day-to-day rewards. See the "Maybe?" section below.

P2P. Plan spending your Diamonds on extra Balloons. The main decision is to focus on

  • Balloon and Progress rewards (thirfty, follow the F2P strategy with a little extra punch)
  • Level Ranking rewards during a particular Round (economical, see the Maybe? section below).
  • Full and Level Rankings during all Rounds (all out Diamond madness. Make ShineZone radiant. Sky is the limit. The strategy is to let it go and purchase all the happiness you can endure).

Balloons and NeedlesEdit

In a normal course of doing the Daily Tasks and playing World maps 8 or more Needles are received each day. Two or three Balloons per game day can be obtained from Tavern each day and three more can be obtained by enhancing Equipment as many times as needed.

For this simulation let's assume that for two days tree balloons are received from the Tavern and two balloons are received on each third day. The following table shows the expected number of balloons received each day, popped in each Round if each balloon is popped immediately, the number of expected Blessings and the expected Progress Rewards.

It is possible to manipulate the total value of Progress Rewards. In Round 1 it is unreasonable to expect obtaining the 25 Reward easily. A good strategy would be to stop popping Balloons after number 10, get the 5 and 10 Progress Rewards and hold on to the excess Balloons until Round 2. The same can be done at the end of Rounds 2 and 3.

F2P. For a F2P player there is little need to focus on obtaining additional Needles by Treasure Hunter farming. Save your time.

P2P. A P2P player needs to spend Diamonds on Balloons first and only farm Treasure Hunters and spend Diamonds on Needles if more Balloons need to be popped before the end of a Round. It may be smart to delay the purchase of additional Needles until just before 11:00 of the last Day in each Round.

A little extra GoldEdit

The unused Needles can be sold for 2 Gold each. This must be done before 11:00 on calendar day 14.

Maybe?Edit

Both F2P and thrifty P2P players may decide to gamble a bit and decide grab a high Rank reward in one Round. The risk is reducing the day-to-day rewards. The most intense Diamond spending probably happens during Round 4 as P2P players position themselves for Full Rewards and for the last piece of Orc King Set. This means that Round 4 is the time just to play along and get what you can from the non-competitive parts: the remaining Balloon pops and progress rewards.

The situation is very different during Round 3. The mid-Diamond P2P players will feel the pinch in their wallet after splurging during Rounds 1 and 2 and pull back on spending. The non-strategic F2P players will not have saved up Balloons. However, some players may decide not to pop their Balloons collected during Rounds 1 and 2 and pop them all during Round 3. This gives them a chance for 63 popped Balloons, the additional 50 Progress Reward and the 80 reward within striking distance, and the potential for 13 Blessings, which potentially could give Level Ranking better than 10.

The risk is not getting the 5 and 10 Progress Rewards in Rounds 1 and 2 and still not Ranking high in Round 3.
