I've had previous posts about collecting certain pieces and how many boxes and time it would take and it was pretty accurate but I also wanted to see one done in real time.

I decided to test how long it would take to collect ninja cue pieces in ROME. I started exactly 1 month ago with a level 8 ninja at 0-80 pieces and wrote down each box opened.

So far in a month period I've collected 16 out of 80 and opened the following boxes: 3h 85, 8h 23, 12h 11. So over a month with 16 out of 80 collected that means I have 64 left to go.

The type of box doesn't really matter much but I just noted them down to see as comparison how rare the 8h and 12h are compared to 3h.

Presuming the same ratio applies 64 divided by 16 is 4 so it would mean that I would have to play another 4 months give or take to max out the ninja cue.

3x85+8x23+12x11=571 hours worth of opening boxes on a span of 30 days that equals 720 hours which means I had a downtime of 149 hours.

I was pretty active but even so you can't always time every box to make sure you don't waste anything but that's probably a good average to use as comparison.

Upgrading an expert cue goes like this in number of pieces 2-6-14-30-40-60-70-80. Which means that you need 302 pieces in total.

If we take the 16 pieces per month as average that equals to 18.8 months to max the ninja cue which is a rough estimate but a fairly good one.

Depending on how many boxes you open it can go faster or slower or if you use $$ to open boxes even faster.

I also only played in ROME so in theory this could go faster if you play higher tables as boxes reward more cue pieces.

Let's also keep in mind that the ninja cue is the most common expert cue there is but maxed out it will have pretty nice stats 10-9-10-7

Collecting BERLIN pieces is a wholenother story but the good part of that is the cues already have high stats to begin with so upgrading them only a few times is enough.

If you want to go for 10-10-10-10 expert cues that could be a worthy challenge if you have the patience and skill and time and dedication to grind them out

I can't remember where I posted when I got my platinum cue to level 2 (I also got shark level 4) and both have same stats 8-9-9-8 which is more than enough for me.

I could go over the numbers again based on the number of berlin wins as I quit playing there but maybe somebody can help me find my older post?

found it, seems the ninja cue would take about 2.3k rome boxes (and i think it took about 1500 berlin boxes to get platinum to level 2 and shark to level 4)

you can do the math individually depending how many boxes per day you open and what kind of cue pieces you are hunting

i did not apply anything to other cues as i didn't really care much to do so but if any other collector wants to contribute it would be nice
