The current contest on server 9 is supposed to be about winning Expo battles with Plague Mogul and WereDragon. However, even if you win all 15 Expo battles for a maximum of four tries over the contest, that would only give you 240,000 points, which is not even enough to get the first progress prize (270,000 points). How is a contest that is supposed to be about the Expedition fighting not even giving one award for the fighting? I used to really like the Expo contests, because they are one of the only contests that require skill (trying to use the heroes for every win, which many players can't or don't do). But this contest, like so many other contests recently, has turned into a pure spending spree.
Please re-evaluate how you are running contests. It's one thing to make money off the players, but surely you can still make a ton of money while allowing us to have fun with the game. Long-term this must be in your interest.
Ps I know I have a few threads on this issue, and I wasn't going to post again, but this one was even more egregious than the last few contests, so it looks like the issue is getting worse rather than better. I mean not even a single progress prize for the target activity? C'mon guys.
