  • Considering you acquire the White Hero Armor only at tier 11, the total amount of  Good Fortune.png points you have to collect to finish the event would be 2,889,000 Good Fortune.png points
  • Estimated time to complete all tiers without using any Hero armors and making 5k Good Fortune.png points a match, or 75,000 Good Fortune.png points an hour, = 47.8 hours.
  • Estimated time to complete all tiers using either the Black or Red Hero armor = 4.7 hours, which is 10x faster then without them, assuming you make 5k a match, which is 50,000 with the any of the 2 armors mentioned earlier equipped.
  • Realistic time for non-paying/hacking players: 5k per match, 12 matches per hour (including time between matches), 3585000 - 4/5 (870,000) points required at normal GF point collection rates (as you will have 5x points for the last tier) = 60,000 per hour until 2715000 points reached = 45.25 hours, plus app loading times, rage quitting games filled with AE gear, changing equipment, connection lost/migrating host etc.

Explosive Weapon Effectiveness[edit | edit source]

Explosive weapons deal 40% more damage to the 3 different Nian enemies. This section will show statistical information showing the amount of Fortune Points you get with each weapon.

Note: MOST of the time, the Great Nian was attacked. But attacking other Nian beasts may give other results.

Grenade Effectiveness[edit | edit source]

The different explosive Gadgets deal 60% more damage to the 3 different Nian enemies. This section will show statistical information showing the amount of Fortune Points you get with each grenade type.

(Its the same with the explosive weapons. It may need a table to show the information in a neat way.)

Non-explosive weapon effectiveness[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Nian (年) means year. The Nian (年) creature is a dragon-like beast that haunts Chinese New Year in hopes of bringing misfortune and despair. However, its merciless intimidation becomes cowardice at the sight of red and the sound of firecrackers. This is why most Chinese New Year attire is red.
  • Ghostbusters traps from the Ghostbusters 30th help by sucking up the Nian beasts and giving you good fortune points.
