    I fully understand your position. Even when "properly" optimised (according to my own definition of allowing people to play actively without an inherent penalty) there will be instances where holding off are optimal - and on the verge of a highly profitable tier would be one of those instances.

    In terms of the opportunity cost of gold, I believe you do me a disservice. I admit I haven't crunched the numbers (because they aren't personally relevant), but having run through the event on normal I see nothing at all that would prevent a free player, properly dedicated, from completing the event (to the first stage). I'm quite sure that the gold efficiency of the second stage isn't up to normal gold efficiency of boss events - but given that syndicates are out that sholdn't be an issue. Syndicates are the best stats for gold option around, closely followed by building upgrade events (assuming one has in-game cash).

    The larger issue is that so little action has occurred for so long that the idea that bosses are the only viable stat-booster has become doctrinal. It is my believe that due to recent events that supposition is no longer necessarily true.

    Actually, I think you lose ground if you do this event. It appears to be as much experience as you could do two bosses in, and maybe three. The stats from those events will far outweigh anything you receive from the LTQ for a fraction of the experience, not to mention that they can be done for free with no hassles. Experience is a negative stat for those who crawl -- effectively a cost -- so you have to look at what kind of stats you receive versus how much it will level you. This LTQ comes out on the extreme negative end of that equation.

    There's 3 1/2 days left. That you started throwing gold at it now doesn't mean it can't be done without gold.

    240 stamina a day (+10% if you have the class bonus) to achieve 1000 wins and around 100 robs, in 5 days. It's doable. Add the stamina you took into the event, plus the refills on level ups and it should be quite comfortable.

    the bit of this that's bugging the hell out of me is looking for some of the buildings, I've now spent ~4-5 hour of gameplay looking for houses to rob, the only hood I've found with houses to rob and the guy had stats over twice mine so no chance what so ever of being able to rob them.

    awesome.

    I think I can get the first 40 without gold. 3600 energy and 110 stamina with @ 33% energy regen bonus. the only issue is finding the buildings to rob. the pizza parlor, diner and gas stations took more than a few hours a piece/

    why isn't there a gold option to bypass a difficult level?
