    I decided at the start of this event I wasn?t going to play the Leaderboard and just concentrate on gathering Troll Tokens.

    Still, I really can?t believe how low on the board I am!
    Just shows the whole thing depends who you get grouped with.
    Super lucky I didn?t want the Royal Kelpie cause no matter how hard I could?ve gone for it, there was zero chance to begin with.

    The main issue I see with Leaderboards is that there is really only one prize - that 10% of players get.
    Trade tickets and energy (especially low amounts like we get) aren?t real prizes.
    Would be much better if there was different prizes for all the ranks!

    ie-
    1 - get grand prize and all prizes
    2 - get grand prize and prize 2 , 3 , 4
    3 - get grand prize and prize 2 , 3
    4-5 - get prizes 2 , 3 , 4
    6-10 - get prizes 3 , 4 , 5
    11-15 - get prizes 4 , 5
    16-20 - get prize 5

    All prizes could be on sale for gems too:
    Grand prize - 3,000 gems
    Prize 2 - 500 gems
    Prize 3 - 200 gems
    Prize 4 - 50 gems
    Prize 5 - 20 gems
    The only way I'm paying 3000 gems for a leaderboard prize is if I know prior to me buying certain drops it has. The drops have to be guaranteed, not chance drops. The drops have to be spectacular.
    That said, I probably won't ever spend 3000 gems on anything ever unless there was a really exceptional gem sale or something

    I agree with the comments about the leaderboard. I have previously won first place with a little over 2300 points while others have spent real money and tons of energy and time getting 20,000 points for the same prize. How is that fair?

    I am crafting the armored Kitsunecorn at this moment. The craft is ready in about 2 hours. But it is late, so I go to sleep. The event ends in 5 hours. So, the event is gone when I wake up. Can I still collect the Kitsunecorn when I wake up tomorrow, or is the craft gone. In other words, should I finish now, spending gems?

    Yes, everything in the MRC is available after the MH is over, even if you didn't start it beforehand. Go to sleep!

    Purchasing 3,000 gems (if not on sale) costs more than $100. Who would spend $100 on a computer game animal prize???? That?s crazy!

    As of right now the top two on my leaderboard have over 16,000 points, the next in third place has just over 8,000. What I don’t get is that the top two seems to be in a pitch battle the last days for the number one spot. They’re both going to get the grand prize so is it really worth spending your money and gems over a difference of a few trade tickets?

    Oh boy, glad that’s over with. I forgot to account for the time it takes to “refresh” after making the deliveries. If it wasn’t for that, I would have won first I wanted to wait until the last 10-15 mins to delivery everything and defeat one last golem but I waited too long. Shoot.

    However, somewhat satisfying since last LB I got knocked out of second at the last second so at least I got the Royal Kelpie this time. I’m not a fan of LB’s for the same reasons others have stated and will only be hunting down monsters for tokens.

    Thanks to everyone who offered advice on strategy and helpful tips. I really appreciate the community vibe on this forum. The game is fun to play but you guys make it extra special.

    I guess I got lucky cause the other players in my group didn’t seem all that interested in competing. I finished with just 9K but most of the other players ended the LB event with only 5K - 6K twelve hours ago.

    Wow, the leaderboard terror is over- finished 4th with 13 793 points ( first one was 22529) - and since 3rd place had over 4500 poinst more than me - I could just give up in the end

    I love monster hunts - absolutely hate leader boards.

    I always get to the point prize (2300).. usually a little more with final push to get a few extra tokens with remaining energy. Most of the time I'm middle of pack (finishing 6th - 12th or so). Maybe 50% of my group reaches 2300.

    This time all 20 people reached 2300. I finished 19th. 1st mid-day was 6.5k and a substantial lead. End was a total different person with 12k, 2nd 11k, and that "leader" with 6.5k ended in 4th with 7.5k.

    I just use regular energy like any other 7- 14- or 21-day quest line .. The monster hunt requires more than usual (about 350 energy/day) to get to 2300. But I like the continuous GOOD use of energy versus the complete wastefulness of energy of other quests.
