Blue Crystal: UPDATE

Hey guys,

As some of you noticed, TinyCo have changed the time to build a Rec Room from 2hrs to 10hrs so the blue crystal rate is now going to take longer to do, essentially, all that has changed is the time period, so it’s still good, it just seems that TinyCo doesn’t want us to live long and prosper πŸ˜‰

(See what I did there?)

  1. It’s a real pity, seems like another ‘nail in the coffin’. This game is losing its appeal after every event, and I’m not the only one thinking this. Where’s the fun factor, it’s just press this, press that, wait some hours press it again….is that fun….really?

  2. I have been using the room swap method since I saw the first comment about using it to get the green energy in the first week, so I was able to get Deanna a few hours ago. It’s really disappointing that they changed the times to discourage people from using it, but any right-minded person should know it was not your fault, rypod. I’m sorry you’re getting all this crap from people. 😦

  3. Are we sure that nothing else was pushed at the same time? New drop rates, or transporter probabilities? I got chocolate twice in a row on away missions yesterday, and the second time the probability looked full as I was adding crew members – and that was after the timing change. Just saying – Tinyco tend to balance the game pretty well (eventually), so better to wait and see rather than assume that they’re driving you into the ground. Remember what happened with Spanish Soap Peter…

  4. I usually love u guys, actually just the girls they are helpful and to the point and give out ACCURATE info. I was doing the room switching just fine and very happy with results. Me and many others drop hints around on how to do the room switching cuz we know tinyco is watching these site (i found out througj those hints too) but to put a full blown post about it is just dumb. the minute the post was out tinyco change it So yeah, im pretty sure they read that. If u r so bored and have nothing to do watch tv, stop putting nonsense stuff on this site. Ive been very nice and love this site up until now. I was very annoy with all the nonesense on this site already (none that holly and zooeymarie put up by the way cuz i think u girls are great) but please tell rypod to stop rambling all over this site. Its really ruin it and im force to go to the other once becuz at least when i go there the info is all compresss and right there for me instead of having to search for it. U guys have fast info (again thank u holly and zooey) a lot faster then the other one but the crap rypod keep posting up is so dumb. Im sure he’s a nice guy but that aint gonna help if he keep posting crap up. i know this probably wont get post up but i hope u listen.

    1. I don’t agree with you Joe.. Rypod is just trying to help and personalize the site for people.. If you don’t like reading his posts, just skip over them.. You can tell what is fluff and what is fact..
      Just be grateful that you could use that hole in the program before they discovered it..

    4. Rypod might or might not be partially to blame Who is to say.

      I guarantee you that Tinyco knew about it. Most likely some thats mad at the game reported rypods post and they fixed it fast so to not lose out on money. The taco truck thing was already fixed last week So very few got to actually use it.

      The drop rates for the missions did get increased so now it should take less trips to get the items.

      Also the drop rates have been changed. There is now a cap on the number of tries for an item if it doesn’t drop after a certain number of fails then it will be forced to drop once that number is hit. The number is most likey based on the type of item ie common vs uncommon vs rare vs extra rare vs epic.

      Tinyco has been listening and trying to improve the game. They realized that people could have some bad luck with drops and at least addressed it In a way that at least helps some.

      Now I wonder what this April fools quest is about.
      Leave your lower characters free.

  5. Tiny Co could have increased the drop rate instead of making the build time 5 times longer…that was just mean! Also I don’t get why RyPod is getting negative comments, that’s just ridiculous. Tiny Co fixed the taco truck and were going to stop the room swapping too. They probably want people to buy Worf and make them money. Atleast we all had a chance to get a few more TE faster than we would have.

      2. Relax again

        Take a look at the replicator. The next two items in it will help alot with getting xp and dc.
        The one drops 16 xp every 2 hours And a little dc
        the other one drops alot of dc with little xp.
        So we will get there and I’d advise everyone to get those two buildings asap.

  6. The dropping rates are awful… the amounts of materials needed are absurd (considering again, the low drops)… the process is contradictory (Klingon Chris traveling to the planet that drops dictionaries, the ones he needs to be unlocked)… and now they changed the only possible way of catching up before the release of new content… I don’t know what’s wrong with them. It’s like if they don’t want players to advance.
    Also… what about that Scam with Worf timer?? … and that “prize” if you get 4 klingon stuff? …
    There is something terrible going on with this event, poor and just lame planning….

  7. Hmmm, so it takes ten hours to build the Rec Room for a guaranteed drop or you can wait six hours for a chance of a drop. Over a 30 hour period you can rebuild the rec room 3 times, for a guaranteed 3 transporter energy or collect from the rec room 5 times for a chance of obtaining crystals. I wonder what the drop rate is for the rec room? If its less than 80% or if you are extremely unlucky with your drops then it still makes more sense to use the rebuild strategy.

    1. I haven’t gotten ANY drops from the Rec room and I get a drop rate of <10% for Peter and Mort. So the only way I've been able to get any blue crystals has been rebuilding the Rec Room. Thanks to the guy who released that info because I had gone several days without any drops from the characters or the room on its own. This is agitating. The drop rates are so low that I can't even imagine getting any of the other characters if they are all going to be like Deanna. Sigh…

  8. So I haven’t really seen them react in the past to loop holes like this… but I am very disappointed, normally they try to keep the game balanced and they respond to the users’ complaints. They have not done this yet. I keep spreadsheets to track unlocking characters and costumes. And they are pretty dead on about how the drops go. According to my calculations I would get Chris’s costume on April 2nd. I have gotten nowhere on the drops of chocolate for Deanna… nadda. I have only been able to send 3 away teams because the blues are dropping so poorly. And I have not been able to get any Chocolates, even though I got all the other items for Deanna as of this morning. So that means that there is no chance of getting Deanna. I am not doing to say that I hate them… but it does take away the fun knowing that there is no possible chance of getting her. And if the game is not fun anymore, then there is no point of playing it.

  9. 🌟haha you’re so right Rypod honestly I’m on my last straw with this game. I’m hoping to be completely DONE playing it before summer because really ask yourself like WHY would TinyCo., just NEED to take that technique out??? WAS IT HURTING ANYTHING??? NOOOO!!!…At first i was skeptical so then i tried it and was surprised it ACTUALLY was working so I continued to do it and ONLY got up to about 6 Transporter EnEnergy, but really TinyCo., why y’all GOTTA MAKE THE GAME MORE STRESSFUL THAN IT ALREADY IS?!?!

  10. Maybe next time, don’t write a post about a loophole because they’re more likely to see it than just comments. A certain other website had this tip up for almost a week and they had done nothing until now that the post was written here. They’re more likely to do something of the source of help talks about the loophole than the players.

  12. Yet again TinyCo shows their true color, GREEN!!$$ The Rec Room swap is part of the fun of playing these games, finding glitches and workarounds. Why don’t they spend less time fixing the glitches that benefit their players and spend more time fixing all the other issues the game has (frequent crashing, more land, etc.)

    2. Foolish comment. That feature is everywhere and was well before you even posted your foolish comment. Can you imagine there actually exists other websites as well as forums that talk about this game? Guess what, there are! And they posted that info way before this site did! People on this site are pretty clueless about this issue.

  14. At least they didn’t change the time on ones that were currently building I would have been really upset if my timer had gone from 5 minutes to 8 hours, 5 minutes.

    Unless TinyCo is going to address the balancing issue with the transporter energy in a different way this is a really poor move on their part, alienating their player base.

    It seems what they want for us is to Play Long in Poverty.

  15. I just started trying it. I guess every 10 hours is better than once every 2 days but I am sure tinyco has the times down for when characters should be unlocked by. I am kinda close to unlocking Chris and deanna. Mostly just the away mission stuff and we are only a little over half way until the next section.

  16. First of all, can we call it what it is? Transporter energy. Second, I’m building 2 rec rooms right now as part of my swapping out procedure and they still only have 30ish minutes left, so it doesn’t appear they are changing the time for Rec rooms that are currently building. Third…..b@stards! I was getting worried that there was too much talk online about the swapping method and that TC would eventually see it and find some way to kill it. Fine line to walk, want to share the tip with others, but don’t want TC to know about the workaround. 10hrs is pretty steep, they could have just made it 6 hrs like the collection time, but making it 10 is really clear they’re doing this to halt the swapping method.
