Flying tubes have no longer given fox?
Many of my guildmates could no longer get the foxes after the update. I wonder if this will be fixed soon? By the way, is there any good news on the comeback of the mushroom tubes?

You are rewarded lucky coins now that can be spent at the wheel of fortune.... :( I want old tube

yeah currently the flying tube is for coins that can be used for free spins of the wheel in city. I also would like to see some form of videos for shrooms as well. or even back to mount needing 10 coins for 1 spin doesn't seem worth the effort from what I am seeing so far.

Not worthy,already have stacked 300 coins and cant use them because spins are limited :)

Maybe we could get some sort of tokens which could be spent on Fox and lucky coins?

For the coins we get would be nice to have it show what we have maybe by where it shows how many shrooms we have. it is a pain having to keep checking at the wheel to find out.

Hi! Where are the coins shown, exactly? 10 for 1 spin are needed?

Click the covered wagon (city screen). The coins are shown there.

Hmm why not use "Lucky coins" to skip construction too ;)

Cause they cant make money from coins hence the use of shrooms if you want to finish quicker.

They already make money on the coins: playa gets paid every time we watch a video.

The question is how much the player gets paid for watching a video.

Since mushrooms can be bought at 3000 per $100, they are worth 3.3 cents each.

When it comes to questing, the dragon griffon costs 25 mushrooms for 2 weeks. 50 quests per day for a shroomer, that is 700 quests for 25 mushrooms. Under the original tube, that was 700 quests for 25 videos (1 mushroom per video). or 28 quests per video.

The flying fox was a major downgrade: 3 quests per video, almost 10 times worse. And since the videos could only be used for quests: you could watch them till your eyeballs fried and you would still not be able to buy an epic or a POEL refresh the store, or skip a quest. For that you would need to spend cash.

The wheel would seem to be a mixed bag. You get 1 free spin and need 90 lucky coins to do your max 9 more: that is 30 videos a day. Since there is one mushroom icon on a 10 item wheel, and it seems to pay 3 mushrooms, you should average 3 mushrooms a day. That's an average of 1 mushroom every 10 videos. Since a mushroom buying a dragon griffon mount is worth 28 quests, we get on average 2.8 quests per video. So slightly worse than the fox, but with two advantages. One you can spend the mushrooms on something other than mounts. Two, the wheel spins that don't give mushrooms give other stuff. From what I've seen so far, the stuff they give isn't worth a whole heck of a lot: crappy items that sell for peanuts, small amounts of gold, wood, stone, or XP.

If a person is offered enough videos per day the do the full 10 spins, with the wheel they will have, on average, an extra 58 mushrooms every month after paying for your mount. That will almost pay for 4 POELs. Nothing left over for epics or store refreshes.

Bottom line: if you want to shroom, you are going to have to buy them. No way to do it with videos any more.
