    Nice!  In its current form, TotP is a fun event and a pretty good value.  This is even better.

    3 tries and any one win means getting an akh booster
    for 30 crystals. comparatively good value if you can
    make the win.

    Great!  

    But really, long term, the reward for getting a perfect score should be a crystals equal to 75%ish of the entry cost.  Right now, its not a terrible deal for Platinum players.  But outsidd of this promotional time, its a horrible trap for everyone else, especially brand new players who haven't figured out the in-game economy   Do you really want them feeling ripped off?

    Great event for platinum players! 

    I already got the events regularly every day and feel like the current state of the event makes it a definite must-play if you are in platinum, as the rewards are very solid there and the current requirements are also good at giving a fairly casual and relaxing option. With the lower entry cost making the event effectively free, there is no reason for platinum players not to do every single one of these, good stuff!

    I just want to know if the max progression being shifted to 2/3 max score instead of a perfect score is a horrible mistake, or horrible idea. 

    All tension in the event has been lost. You might as well remove the crystal/booster rewards and combine it with training grounds.

    I love this cut down price! If i play well i get my ante back, the feel of risking 30 gems is a nice stimulus. 

    Please @LakeStone keep it like this!

    I agree. Can we have it back? Where did it go?

    I also like the reduced cost. I missed a few days sadly.  At 69 crystals it feels like no behaving.  At 30 or 40 it is very worthwhile and fun.

    Please make the reduction permanent. I played almost every day because it didn't give me massive buyer's remorse. I'm now back to not playing.
