    EDIT: Please take a look at @ctindaldavies numbers down four posts. I did this very quickly before going to work this morning because nothing was up. A big change is that only races 1 and 4 are needed for the cloudrow. ctindaldavies double checked numbers and gives numbers for each of the races. Also @-Päärynä11 pointed out to use the deluxe fuel for the last step to get the double dragon rider upgrades. Thanks guys!

    No one has posted anything, probably because it's complicated! I figured out minimum requirements. There are five races, only four are needed for the cloud row.
    - Each race has a certain number of steps with one of two sets of prizes (upper or lower) to be collected at varying intervals (2, 3, or 4).
    - You need Biofuel (milled) to move along the steps. Biofuel moves 1 step, Biofuel XL moves 3 steps, and Deluxe Biofuel moves 1 step with double rewards.
    - The least amount of ingredients are needed using as many Biofuel XL as you can with some Biofuel. These requirements are:

    Camelina - 11,610 for cloudrow (4 races) or 16,100 for all 5 races
    event crop that grows on main field and green meadow only.
    Fuel Cans - 593 for cloudrow or 842 for all 5 races
    event drop from main field and green meadow only from trees and crops.
    Sunflowers - 460 for cloudrow or 634 for all 5 races
    regular crop

    The complicated part is that you can move from one set of rewards to the other, which takes an extra step OR you can collect double rewards with the Deluxe Biofuel, which needs many more ingredients. So, you need to take a look at the prizes and work out how many times you want to switch upper/lower prizes, or collect double.

    Please, anyone feel free to correct, elaborate, make charts, etc. !!!

    Solatido, thank you for starting the strategy thread.

    I am sitting out this event. It's crunch time for me in real life...you'll find me in the basement driving my sewing machines at 100 miles an hour for the next couple weeks.

    Good luck to all who participate.

    Well done Solatido. I was working on it at the same time. Glad I checked before I posted.

    Do not forget to use Deluxe Biofuel to get two Dragon rider upgrades in the end of three rides to get Majestic Dragon Rider 4. Six upgrades are needed to get the best one, but there is only 3 rewards without Deluxe Biofuel.

    Hopefully I remember that when I reach that point :oops:

    Ok, I went through all my figures again as I got a huge difference. Can someone else please check?
    For CR ONLY you only need to complete races 1 and 4.
    Needed 115 Event steps (with only BioFuel)
    9,200 x Camelinas
    460 x Fuel Cans
    690 x Sunflowers

    Using XL Biofuel over plain really cuts down the sunflower numbers, but not much of the event plant.

    For full 5 races using maximum BioFuelXL and only plain BioFuel and 1 Deluxe to finish ( for 1 of each reward and 2 dragon rides/upgrades) I got
    Race 1: 44 Event steps - 14 BioXL/1 Bio/1 Deluxe (3,430 Plants/186 Fuel Cans/130 Sunflowers)
    Race 2: 60 Event steps - 19 BioXL/2 Bio/1 Deluxe (4,560 Plants/245 Fuel Cans/176 Sunflowers)
    Race 3: 60 Event steps - 21 BioXL/1 Bio/1 Deluxe (4900 Plants/263 Fuel Cans/186 Sunflowers)
    Race 4: 71 Event steps - 23 BioXL/1 Bio/1 Deluxe (5320 Plants/285 Fuel Cans/202 Sunflowers)
    Race 5: 64 Event steps - 21 BioXL/0 Bio/1 Deluxe (4820 Plants/259 Fuel Cans/180 Sunflowers)

    Totals 23,030 Camelitas; 1,238 Fuel Cans; 874 Sunflowers

    Thanks

    *edit - if you want to get 2 x season rewards or wonder boxes etc, you would need to cater for some more deluxe fuels.

    I'm giving this one a pass. I couldn't even finish just the four hour plants for Tangled Tavern. I couldn't finish the last batch of 3000+ plants needed, and was waaaaaaaaaaay short on the 800 compasses for the CR. Since the requirements here are even higher I think I'll just build up some stock feed plants and try to finish a couple of the FSQ's I have saved as 'favorites'. Something with no time deadline sounds nice.

    Thanks ctindaldavies for the numbers.
    First of all, I wish everyone to reach their goal and good luck. What fuel should we use? I don't remember what I used before.

    Passing on this one. Used too much resources on Tangled Tavern and didn't come close to finishing it. Since the wheel didn't give me a 100% or 200% bonus, I see it as a sign to sit back and relax.
     
  9. Everybodys own style to get prizes wanted...

    I do plans for every section, mill those needed fuels, get 6x upgrade to EP-machine, doing all best SSG and SG prizes and NOT double ep-machines I think.

    So "very hard to plan more than 10 steps forward" - in my tactic anyway!

    It doesn't matter which one you use, except for the very last spot. You must use the Deluxe fuel in the last spot to get 2 Dragon Ride/ upgrades, otherwise you will miss some of the upgrades.
    You save a lot of fuel cans and sunflowers by using XL fuel to almost the end, then using the plain fuel and the deluxe to get you to the finish line. But if you want more double items, like season points, crates, PF etc, then you need to use more Deluxe Biofuel to land on those spots.

  11. My 1st race - completed.

    You DON´T NEED TO READ THIS CALCULATIONS but If You want something "ready for You", in which case you should continue reading

    Calculated this route, many times, first "following your finger on the PC screen" and then COMPLETED, with these steps:

    3x Super 3x UP
    3x 3x 1x Super DOWN
    1x 1x Super 3x UP
    1x Super 3x Super 3x Super 3x Super 1x Super 3x Super=End=2x Dragon rider

    That's the way I went!

    I RECOMMEND THAT EVERYONE EVEN CHECK YOURSELF,
    I will not take responsibility if you make ANY transfer wrong and it will go wrong!

    Where you use DELUXE = Super, you will receive the following prizes, calculated here as totals for "doubles":

    16x SG (before 3x & "UP)
    10x SSG (before "DOWN")
    34x SG (then 3x and UP and all the way "in-UP" to the end of the Race1)
    10x PF
    18x SG
    12x SSG
    12x SSG
    10x PF and finally
    2x Dragon Rider - Experience point object (which can be upgraded)

    Any awards other than the ones mentioned above have little relevance to me, so I will focus on those and future RACES also Upgrades ... (only level 233 in this game but but...)

    I'm not counting the exact numbers of event plants or drops here, I'm just saying that when I started running, there were over 13,000 event plants in stock as well as over 700 drops.

    Let me tell you, so you need to:

    8 times "1x"
    9 times "3x" and
    9 times "Super".

    !!! PLEASE NOTE !!! that everyone is playing for themselves and doing their own checks, I think someone may still want a “clear” explanation of how to proceed and what to achieve with that progress.

    FUN GAME FOR EVERYONE!

    p.s. at least I've personally noticed in events like this before that paper and pen, an old trick, and spending time on planning are worth it!

    p.p.s. I wrote this story "a bit like providing thanks for the correct answers at the Board game event" because I felt and know that I have received a lot of free and absolutely real and good help from you from other Players who are active here in the forum (as a Finnish citizen it helped me a lot because not everything can be turn directly using the compiler (GT) and not everyone will turn there properly using it) !!!

    I was unwell yesterday, plus because I play via SAC, my graphics were wonky. Today, I played race 1 and absolutely love my dragon! She is such a good girl :inlove:xD

    Thanks to those who did the calculations and special thanks to player who gave me race breakdown via IGM. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that as I was in no shape to make heads or tails (or is that dragon wings or tail?:pxD) of what I was supposed to do beyond growing the crop.

    Good luck to you all in getting the prizes you wish :)

    I succumbed to my event OCD and started growing the crop on sewinglady's farm. The rest of my farms are NOT participating - don't waste precious drop gifts sending them to this farm or PM23.

    If you can swing it, pick up that extra Howie that's available for another couple hours.

    I came here this morning to see what was in store for the upcoming weekend. I see we are going to have the Tree Train. whee. And new wonder trees. more whee.

    If you're sitting this event out - load up with stables and sell poo at the market. It's already pretty high on #9 and #13...

  16. All 5 races COMPLETED !

    "in my tactics" I do too much LITTLE those "Super-Double" turns in races 2 & 3, but allmost every "good to me" prizes Doublet in races 4 & 5.

    2 EP-machines and all upgrades.

    How could I do an event other than "head wet, everything ashes and full throttle"? Thats a good question that :) ;)

    edit: sorry Bääd Ing-lish... and 100% straight translated Finnish-ideas in spoken language...

    I managed to get through 4 races, so I got the cloud row. YEAH! Made a discovery while filling it. I can use Water Towers to fill my 1x1's. Only 250CC each!
