    16,081, nice. The trick is in the wording of the event - Alfred is 75% of last event's cost, not discounted 75%.
    time's up.

    I don't really know what does "75% of last event's cost" really means. Does it refer to last event that recently concluded OR the last time Alfred event was out. Either way if 75% of x cost 24k - again I don't really know which event I noticed was 96k. Only monopoly is this expensive and for sure Monopoly is not the last event.

    Confused me. :-(

    Last time Alfred was for sale it was in December worst case for one dna was about 21k. This time worst case according to previous post is 16k, so 75% of last time. Not 75% discount.

    Sale, discount, marketing...who cares? :-) I am really happy that at least I get some transparency from this forum about the total costs ;-) Many thanks to all who contributes to this and help me to save credits.

    I really like Alfred and he is one of my preferred commanders on my wish list but I think I will not spend 32k for him and will wait to one of those lucky days of the celestial portal....someday :-)

    I just got Krill for FREE today from the Celestial Portal
    When the Celestial Portal was introduced, I decided not to spend credits to buy the Cmdrs that are available in the Portal.
    My patience paid off
    I fully support Ryoga in waiting for the FREE Alfred from the Portal.
    May Lady Luck smile on you as she smiled on me today

    We should not have to rely on other players to get the full picture. Tap should write the cost for each chest and not just their regular megasale crap. You don't go to Media Markt and buy a TV on 18 month payment plan without knowing the full cost. Just the first payment and then the rest will be a surprise. Or that you pay 18 times while someone else get the TV after just 4 payments.

    I really dislike Tap and their sales methods.

    ASR1927, you are right.
    The price foir each chest should be listed out.
    I appreciated the credits spent by the contributor of this article but it should not be necessary if Tap4Fun just list down the price on the event announcement page.
