Need better gear? Earn gems for simulating games


I’ve simulated roughly 1500 games and I still haven’t received the rewards for both the 500-game and the 1000-game mark. The last time I got an achievement was when I hit 257 games (the point where I started a 11up gem farm and got no rewards). I hit the sound button 30-40 times and enter the account settings tab every time I log in, but no gems coming. What’s happening?


Is it only me with “No games to simulate. Trying another game in 10 seconds.” message in multiplayer ladders simulate tabs?
Yesterday games simulating stopped at all for quite short period of time, and then it came back, but slowed down enormously. It was a huge amount of my hero games simulated per hour before and now it’s about 3 or 4. And this message is shown for minutes unlike before when simulate tab simulated games of other players every second. Is it bug or new feature?)


I’ve seen this happen before a couple of times. It usually goes back to normal in a day or two. Hopefully, that will be the case this time as well.


Oh, thanks a lot! I thought it was something about maintanance or something like that, when it stopped


We did disable them briefly as we saw an increase in usage and the simulations were contributing to server instability. We were focused on fixing it (which we have done now) – sorry we didn’t get a chance to let folks know.


I have simulated almost 6800 games in counting and I have tried everything you guys have said and have not gotten anything.


Not sure what you have tried but if the sound button isn’t working try completing some levels or giving it a couple days / trying both of these methods.


sometime, the game will update giving you the crystals


Ok thank you I will try that.


I did try the sound Button and messed with my profile but none of those worked, so I will try to complete a level.


Normally, you have to wait a little amount of time, just 10 days to 60 days…


It worked

wat :neutral_face:

The multiplayer game escort duty has a very few amount of players, so it’s hard to simulate there.


Where is escort duty anyway? Is it a desert level?


(I wasn’t sure so typed in the url, has a desert layout so I think yes)


Probably not released yet.


no reply?



Yes you get gems from simulating games. I have hit the top 2 simulations and am sitting over 7000 gems. I believe I have read somewhere on the forums before that when you start simulating games the rewards are much higher. The more games you simulate the less the rewards, but the rewards are still there. If you want to know the full extent of rewards I would ask @MunkeyShynes (didn’t know I could tag people like that lol thanks munkey) they are the top simulator. I am curious how many gems they have been rewarded as well lol @peterearthmars7


This is from my account…

and this is from my daughter’s account…

The formula for the diminishing return is 20x^0.4, where x is the number of games simulated. As you can see, an additional 35 million simulations only yielded an additional 7 thousand gems. This is from the diminishing return. Check out this interactive graph for a view of the formula in action.


Don’t pester Nick – he’s busy making more awesome things.

Escort Duty is a new arena created for a tournament overseas. It will probably be added to the list of arenas, but I can’t tell you when – @Seojin_Roy_Lee was right – just not (officially) released yet.
