  1. This is called the horseshoe bug .. and has been discussed at some length already on the Forum. Recently, a special update has fixed the problem .. so just download this update (the most recent) .. and all will be well again πŸ˜€
  2. You’re not stuck .. here’s what you do ! As fast as you can .. hit the arrow button (bottom left of screen) to skip the ultimate league fight. If at first you don’t succeed .. keep trying ! Eventually .. you will successfully skip the fight .. lose your UL ticket .. but stop the game from crashing πŸ˜€ Next .. remove the horseshoe from your ultimate car .. and don’t use it again until this particularly nasty bug πŸ› is fixed ! (The horseshoe can be used in City Kings .. but not Ultimate League .. a very weird bug 🐜 indeed πŸ˜‚) And rest easy .. your opponent using a horseshoe will not crash your game πŸ˜€ Hope this survival guide to navigate through another awful update helps πŸ˜€
  3. It is true that every cloud ☁️ has a silver lining. 1. I don’t buy ultimate tickets .. so the increased price doesn’t affect me. However, this is the latest in a long line of price increases (eg paid heals and in-store gem packages). A good thing ? Only for Zeptolab πŸ˜‚ 2. You say β€œwe all have a chance to collect them equally” when referring to UL toolboxes. Are you familiar with George Orwell .. and the concept that some are more equal than others ? πŸ˜‚ Toolboxes are a reward for winning CK matches. Do all gangs win the same number of CK matches? In fact, the 3 best gangs ( Rex’s gang, The Godfathers and Pbl ) win around 40% more matches than my gang (Fellow Foxes 🦊 .. currently ranked #16 in Purris) .. and around 100% more district 10 matches (with 40% 24 hour toolboxes as the reward). Far from making CK matches more dynamic, it has doubled the chance of our gang getting thrashed by the top 3 gangs. And conversely, doubled our chance of thrashing gangs towards the bottom of the top 100 ! Balanced CK competition ? .. bah humbug πŸ˜‚ 3. Let me know how bright your spirit is after your next match against a top 3 gang πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 4. BUT .. there is a silver lining ! Although not announced, this update has increased cash per UL fight significantly (from 1, 2 and 3 cash units to 6, 10 and 13 cash units). Even with more difficult UL fights also added, it is possible to comfortably win 15/20 UL fights at an average of 10 cash units per fight. That’s 150 cash units per UL ticket .. compared to around 25 to 30 previously. Now THAT IS UNAMBIGUOUSLY A VERY GOOD THING πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
  4. Brace yourselves for another awful and unwanted update .. due in just under 8 hours time .. 1. Allowing toolboxes into City Kings introduces yet another unwelcome p2w element into this already grossly unfair competition πŸ‘Ž 2. Earning the extra UL cash to put toolboxes on your cars will now be significantly more expensive πŸ‘Ž In summary .. an absolute shocker .. Zeptolab have rolled out Christmas Scrooge a week early !!
  5. A great idea πŸ’‘.. one that was put forward over six months ago (Ultimate Machine Toolboxes) in this section of the Forum πŸ˜€
  6. Hi Mysterio I’m not aware of a list that covers all the information you’re after. There are two official lists/announcements on CATS discord .. but they do not yet cover the new Hot Wheels cars .. which added OUTSTANDING as a category of ultimate parts. It is clear that Outstanding parts are, by far, the most expensive to upgrade ! We know from experience that each upgrade of an ultimate part adds progressively more health/damage than the previous upgrade. Otherwise, it’s simply been a matter of trial and error (or asking players who have already upgraded) to discover the value of each upgrade. I have not upgraded the Bone Shaker body .. but any upgrade will not increase the 10% weapons bonus .. if universal bonuses are working in the same way as they do for normal cars. Perhaps the best way to get information is to join CATS Discord. There are Prestige 60 players there who have upgraded most ultimate parts to their maximum levels .. so they should be able to answer any specific questions you have. It will be quite some time before I’m in that position πŸ˜€
  7. Hi GhostMan The second Furry Road competition (Bone Shaker) ends in just under a day. There is likely to be a one day break (as there was between the Twin Mill and Bone Shaker Furry Road events) .. then the final Furry Road (Shark Bite) competition will begin. Each Furry Road event runs for 5.5 days. So .. a total of just under 7.5 days until the Hot Wheels event for these 3 cars finishes up. I expect a Christmas event πŸŽ„ to follow shortly afterwards πŸ˜€
  8. Another Zeptolab bug πŸ› 🐜 🐞 Bots .. not real players .. are now sporting two of the same part (from time to time) when you face them in ultimate league .. and All-Stars 😑 (I’ve faced these buggy bots in ultimate league myself .. and have been reliably informed that they made an appearance in the Twin Mill All-Stars event as well) No doubt Zeptolab are working to fix this problem ! But rest assured that every new update in CATS will always be accompanied by unwelcome bugs that slip past the Zeptolab testing staff 🀑 PS Cat of Mass Destruction ???? I smell a rat .. or a mischievous cat .. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  9. First .. the City Kings Leaderboard is cumulative for each city. So for Purris .. it sums your gang’s score for each match, comprising .. 1. Influence points (up to a maximum of 140,000 points for the largest CK map) .. and .. 2. A bonus multiplier (which increases as your gang progresses through CK districts, up to a maximum of 50x .. once you have completed the City). The only way to review gang performances is to take your own screenshots (which I do at the completion of every match). You will then have a record of wins and losses .. highest winning and losing scores .. etc. Second .. the Trophy Leaderboard for gangs is updated every 3 days when your gang completes a full round of gangfights. Gangs compete in 3 different timezones .. Asian, European and American .. with Asian gangfights finishing first .. followed by European (8 hours later) and American (16 hours behind the Asian timezone) gangfights. The trophy leaderboard is updated as each timezone completes their gangfights. Hope this helps πŸ˜€
  10. It’s worth distinguishing between the Hot Wheels event and Zeptolab offers. This Hot Wheels event has been excellent πŸ‘ Furry Road offers an easily achievable set of rewards .. with no need to spend any gems. And All-Stars events typically provide a gem-free opportunity to finish in the top 69 at least .. and the top 29 if you actively participate. Zeptolab offers, on the other hand, have always been a massive rip-off .. from day 1 😑 My advice is very simple .. NEVER EVER BUY A ZEPTOLAB OFFER .. the only exceptions being gems and 2x UL parts or fans offers ! My 18 month anniversary of playing CATS is tomorrow. In that time, I have not spent one cent on this game. To do so is utterly pointless .. and a waste of money. The game changes direction so much that any money spent is ultimately wasted. Much smarter to progress at your own pace (I’m a Prestige 39 player) .. and watch the big spending players drop out of the game one by one πŸ˜€ By the way .. the twin mill engine (while I appreciate it completes the set) is unlikely to be part of the best twin mill build anyway. It’s just a glorified booster .. and the gadget slot on the twin mill could be much better used for a harpoon (if using melee weapons) .. or back pedal/frost sprinkler (if using range weapons). Either way .. no harm done waiting for the twin mill engine to become available in future All Star or Hot Wheels events.
  11. A little more has been revealed! 1. Three new hot wheels cars will be made available specially for the event. 2. We don’t know whether these cars are ultimate cars .. or in a seperate class of their own. 3. There will be a Championship event (Furry Road) as part of the overall Hot Wheels event .. with accompanying rewards πŸ‘ 4. An All Stars event will also be included .. along with the great prizes that have always come with this event πŸ‘ 5. The only disappointment is the naming of the hot wheels cars ! Shark Bite is excellent (referencing The Baby Sharks gang) .. but the other two are a bit lame πŸ™ Foxes Fury would have been much better .. along with Cougar Charger .. and Tiger Tank (or Lightweight Lynx) πŸ˜‚ Nevertheless .. the Hot Wheels event is shaping up as the best ever event to come to CATS .. bring it on !
  12. Around 6 hours to go before the next update. I assume a key feature of this update will be preparing for the new Hot Wheels event πŸ˜€ I’m not sure how CATS and Hot Wheels will be combined .. but .. 1. If this new event is anything like the All-Stars events, it will be a lot of fun πŸ˜€ 2. With Hot Wheels β€œsponsoring” this event, the prizes could be seriously spectacular πŸ‘ All will be revealed soon πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ
  13. A few points πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 1. Gang fights .. because real players get enhanced stats in gang fights, I wonder if the β€œenhancement” process removes their stickers ? πŸ˜‚ 2. League fights .. there are no stickers for ultimate cars (although that would make more sense .. because ultimate cars live forever !) πŸ˜‚ 3. Championships .. I still see some stickered cars in Championship fights .. but most died out when the β€œno camping” rules were implemented by Zeptolab ! RIP campers .. RIP stickered cars πŸ˜‚ The best solution .. introduce stickers for ultimate cars ! Every time you level up an ultimate body .. you get one sticker. It may even add a little bit of interest to ultimate league fighting πŸ˜€
  14. You tend to get one-sided matches in the early districts of a new city. The same thing happened in Meowscow. After district 2 the matchmaking system presumably has enough match results to start producing fairer match-ups. So just hang in there .. help is on its way πŸ˜€ We are a top 20 gang .. yet almost all our opponents in Purris have been non-top 100 gangs so far. I’m also not complaining πŸ˜‚
  15. Indeed, your discovery of the Kittens Gone Bad (KGB) organisation .. and its attempts to infiltrate CATS .. was a real game changer πŸ˜€ Armed with this intelligence, Fellow Foxes 🦊 was able to play the lead role in monitoring .. and ultimately shutting down .. the operations of this nefarious group. Along the way, there has emerged one real heart-warming story ❣ Catwop has come in from the cold .. and been welcomed into the family of freedom fighters πŸ˜€ He has been bestowed with the highest honour in CATS .. he is now an honorary Fox 🦊! And now for my next question ? Will the three Non PresTigers family of gangs (Non PresTigers, NP Cubs and NP Lynx) be able to achieve a higher combined score in Purris than Fellow Foxes 🦊? It should be a great race πŸ˜€
