Sonic Runners (iOS/Android) - Thread Version 2.0

Yeah, I think the Chaotix would fit a Summer Vacation theme better than Easter, but I'm not sure an even slower Team Easy with maybe only a 10% score cut would be that tempting to put on the Roulette compared to a 75% Ring Bonus. I'd rather expect Cream and Big to become Rose Types one day just like Silver got a Future Type variant, but Big's case is more difficult since Blaze is already Power/Rose. Maybe Power/Froggy?

Is it possible to buy characters such as Tails, Knuckles,Shadow,Rouge etc in the game ? Or do u just have to unlock them.

Btw, do you guys  think characters such as Jet, Wave,Vanilla, Storm,Marine and Gamma will be released ? Considering Big is playable and so will mephiles soon. Sega should release Super Sonic,  Super Shadow, Super Silver and Burning Blaze, plus Neo Metal Sonic in my opinion. Not forgetting the knights of the round table from Sonic and The Black Knight.

All roulette except team easy and team chaotix.

that's a lot of characters. So far i think only team babylon and gamma can make it.

As for super forms, i think its more feasible if they were some sort of headstart mechanic (You could use laser wisp but whatever) since the only way they would die is though ring loss or pits, and timed mode covers that pretty good.

Is it just me or the s leagues are now harder? For example, a week back i could stay in s*** just by scoring 20 mil and get like 15th place or sth.

either that or its because i enter the league at a different time?

If you place high on the S*** league, you will automatically be put into a league filled with players who scored around as much as you for the next ranking period, meaning your high score in the previous league is just an average score in the next league. By that, they force you to score higher and eventually fall down.

I found a neat trick for the Story Mode rankings, though: Once you're in S***, don't play Story Mode at all during the current ranking period, and they will put you in a league with very, very bad players for the following period, allowing you to place in the top 5 easily.

The best thing about that is, even if you don't play during the ranking period at all, you will still be rewarded Shahra or the Special Egg for staying in S***.

The Babylon Rogues - There's a chance, sure. They may not have been in the original data dump but there are characters now who weren't and have been added since (Tikal, Werehog). In fact, I'm kinda surprised Tikal was given a playable appearance before them, if I must be honest. And with Mario and Sonic Rio allowing more than just Jet off his gear, their profession shouldn't be a hindrance. 

Marine - A lot more unlikely, but she's had cameos and mentions here and there so I guess technically not impossible? But I wouldn't hedge bets.

Gamma - I think if they were going to do him, they would have done it during the SA1 event, so he's probably out of the question now.

Vanilla - Sonic Team don't even really see her as a separate character any more, so no. 

Super forms - There was a hoax about Super Sonic being in, but it'd be kinda hard to implement given that any stat changes would probably break the function of the game. It'd be either cosmetic or in cutscenes.

Knight forms - That'd be fun, but the Secret Rings event made those sorts of costumes cutscene only, so I think these would be treated the same, unfortunately.

Other characters - Depends on who they are, really.

I'd actually really like to see Emerl come to this game at some point. I don't think it's too likely at all, and I doubt there'd ever be a Sonic Battle event.

Maybe someday we'll have a robot event with Gamma, Emerl, and maybe like Tails in his Cyclone or something lol

Wishful thinking ?

That explains a lot. Since i did overcome my high score a while back. 

So if assuming timed mode leagues are the same. I should wait past a weekend before i start a streak?

It's not as simple for Timed Mode, because if you stop playing there even for a day, you will always lose your winning streak, and that trick would require you to participate only in every second league, as once you get promoted again, you will have equal scores surrounding you again. The only option to succeed in Timed Mode is to Limit Break your characters, anyway.

I know. Thats why i said weekend.

Sandbagging is a skill. Once i break chaotix, i will probably lead with team heroes after a reset. Then slowly increase those scores. Im still hanging around e***, so its possible. 

But then i cant do story mode at all if i want to get back to league s***. Animal collecting is going to be a pain. Bottom route all the way?

I played this game back when it came out, but unfortunately lost my progress somewhere along the way. I kind of liked it though and I want to play something to scratch the Sonic game itch and celebrate the 25th anniversary. I did just about everything I cared about in Sonic Dash and I'm not a big fan of Sonic Dash 2, so I might start over on this instead.

It looks like you can limit break (and presumably buy) team Dark and Omega via rings and Red Rings. No more roulette! Hopefully it will become permanent.

Although getting Rings is becoming hard now, as less people are playing so there are less people to send Tokens to.

If anyone wants to add me on Facebook please do, as I send out Tokens approx 4-5 times a day!

I wonder if saving item/normal roulette tickets help. I have way too many items anyway and waiting for roulette to be replaced by rings.

I don't think they've ever had an all ring roulette (other than stage 3 of the item roulette which has a mix of rings and red rings).

The Jackpot on the item roulette is fairly stingy - You can get more rings by sending out tokens!

People still play this game? What has Sega got to do to finally get rid of you people?

No need to hostile about it. The game is still pretty fun if one plays it just here and there casually. Nothing wrong with people enjoying it even if it has problems.

On the next subject, I hope I'm lucky enough to get Sticks! Really want her. =D

The irony of "here and there" when you still require an internet connection.

But oh well.

Anyway this further proves Sticks is not a Sonic Boom exclusive character. I won't be surprised if she appears in the 25th anniversary game.

tell that to the people who beat me in world leagues everyday

Sticks is confirmed in m&s.

Yep i would have completed team wild if i got her. But no such luck. Nvm, i have a bunch of characters to unlock anyway. 

What if they decide to celebrate lunar new year? O.o they did a spring event once right?

So far they've missed 3 good times to do an event, that's for New Years, Valentines and Christmas (As Christmas was just a stage and no collect-a-thon/Raid Battle). I doubt the game's going to have many more events, nor frequent updates as I think in their eyes people only care about new characters.

Valentines? Thats not a good idea. Nope. If its just a stage or plain collecting its okay, but...story? Oh wait, maybe they can use zeena

The interface seems pretty packed. I wonder how they will fit future events in.

The Windy Hill in Spring stage will most likely return for Easter, but we'll have to wait and see if the Christmas stage was an exception (since it was so close to the big update) or if all the Special Stages are going to be skins from now on. Fact is there is currently no way to upgrade or obtain Merlina, King Boom Boo, Mother Wisp, Erazor or Zazz's Moon Mech. However, I remember not many people participated in the collect-a-thons according to the ranking results.

I'd prefer if they just added new episodes with Desert Ruins and Tropical Coast, as there are still unused stage icons for all the Special Stages (even Christmas) + variations like Windy Hill, Lava Mountain and Sky Road at night. It's just a waste to only use them once a year.

I'm not gonna spin for Sticks. Actually, I haven't tried the Premium Roulette once since the 2.0 update, as I'm saving up my (currently 2000+) RSR for the Event Chaotix that I believe will come this year.
