I think the Companion Racing is so much fun. I'm getting pretty good at picking the winner. I did notice one glitch though. This year, the cost of the betting has been reduced to 1760 gold (TY Devs), but if you ask the NPC how much the betting cost is, he'll tell you 2200.

The blog says the amount for betting was reduced. The races are cute :)

I think it would help the cost if the bet amount was based on level.

half of nearly nothing is nearly nothing, why not give use something else useless like half an agate.
make the races cost 50,000 gold and have them give us something good when we win and nothing but bitter tears when we lose.

I just bet on the races again and purposely lost the first 5 games so I could keep track of the gold cost. I bet on 6 games and it cost me 2200 gold for each bet. I did not get refunded any gold when the races finished. When I won my final race, I was rewarded 5 Dog Days Tokens and a Dog Days Satchel (which contained topaz)

(The cost in 2018 was 2100 gold, so the gold cost actually went up this year ... this is a glitch since the cost of the bet is supposed to be reduced to 1760 gold this year).

I'll submit a ticket to let Nick know.

How can you lose a race on purpose? I cannot pick a winner to save my life! It takes me a least 6 bets to get a win, yes I did buy all the books that are for sale from the vendor, is there something I am missing?

Those books are useless to moi ...(my opinion)......even last year...I followed them and LOLOLOL nada wins so I picked them on MY own this year again and I manage too win
after 3 trys..Last year I won the races in 1/2 tries

you click the creatures top left and read each hint and from that you might guess the winner or very easily guess a loser. at least that is how it worked last year. have not had time to do this event yet this year

Elsastar96, it's a lot easier to pick a loser than it is to pick a winner ๐Ÿ˜Š

I never knew about clicking the top left creatures for hints..thanks for that Raymond. Flybaby...you are not wrong there! I just didn't understand how you could pick a loser on purpose...but now I get it.

Thanks peeps!

If nothing else, you at least get an achievement, and Large Energy Pack if you buy all the racer assessment upgrades for the Companion Race Track.

The release notes in the blog states "Increased the difference in odds provided by the different โ€œlevelsโ€ of fitness and mood to of race track competitors to make betting a little more predictable"

Personally, I don't see any difference from last year. I have tried keeping track of the betting odds to see if there is any correlation among the winners but there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as far as guessing the winner correctly.

However, if you buy all the books, you can at least rule out the 2 lowest percentage choices immediately, giving you 50/50 odds of betting on the right one. It doesn't work 100% of the time but it at least narrows down the field.

Wow ... The time clock for event quests is really getting later and later. It seems like it's an hour off now.
