Welcome transfer_agent to my Neocola Machine Guide/Statistics Page




I made this page a long time ago, and I've noticed that it is terribly outdated and became so only in a matter of weeks. The new Battledome is giving out a lot of Neocola tokens and their price has dropped to around only 350 np, and the prices of most of the prizes I've listed have also gone down. Please take note of that.Also note that if I do update, the prices are still subject to change.


So, you've wandered onto my page about the Neocola Vending Machine? Well, this is a guide page along with some statistics of what I've gotten from the machine at the bottom.

Well, for starters let me go into exactly what the Neocola Vending Machine is. Well, like what you'd learn from its name, it is a vending machine, except for the fact that you don't need neopoints, but a special Neocola Token to use it. There are three kinds of Neocola Token; Red, Green and Blue, and from what I know I don't think that there's any variation in prizes from using any of them. They used to cost around 14k, but their price has dropped to around 2k right now (dropped to around 350 neopoints currently), mainly because the Battledome is giving them out. You can get a lot of them from battling the Evil Sloth Clone. You can also buy them as they restock at the Space Weaponry Shop, but you can also get them from random events.
A note though, if you want to use the machine from prizes you get from the Battledome, it's best not to fight the Evil Sloth Clone. Instead, what I would suggest would be to fight an opponent that gives lots of codestones like the Koi Warrior (this is just based on my experience) and sell them. Use those neopoints to buy tokens. That's what I do, since some of those red codestones sell for a lot and I don't need them for training yet.
Now, getting to how the machine is used, once you click on the Onward button at the beginning, you get led to another page where you have to select which token you want to use and a bunch of other options. From what I've seen, I don't think that the options really matter, but here is what you can choose: The token you want to use (this depends on which token you have in your inventory, of course), which flavor you want (Dr Slother, Diet Doom, Na'cho Cola, Smite, Alt-Tab, Minion Maid, Mountain Poo and Dehydrated H2O) and finally how many times you want to press the red button (0,1,2,3,10,42). You may notice some of those flavors are really weird, but that's besides the point.
Now, onto prizes. You'll get some neopoints (generally very low, below 100 usually and maximum of around 1,000) and an item that's generally of low value, which the game will call a booby prize. Right now, none of the prizes are worth the cost of a token except the Dastardly Evil Fuzzle or a Transmogrification Potion. And the odds of getting both are very slim. The Baby Space Fungus was worthwhile a long time ago, but right now, at just around 50 NP per, it just doesn't justify the cost with the odds of getting one so low.
If you're wondering, yes, you can get a Transmogrification Potion, but the odds are low and a Draik/Krawk trans potion is unheard of.
So, yeah, if you ask me, the machine really isn't worth it unless you want to have some fun. Seriously. But anyway, I've decided to get five tokens a day and record my results in a table. Below the table, there are the statistics which I've put up. There is no limit to how many tokens you can use in a day, so it can get addictive and your wallet could get empty. Also, there is nothing special to gain from the Vending Machine: all the prizes except the two I've mentioned above can be bought for less than a token, and if you want a Dastardly Evil Space Fungus I'd recommend just buying it. It really only costs around 2,000 neopoints, and a token costs 350 neopoints. Seriously, getting 2k is not hard, so putting in tokens hoping for an Dastardly Evil Space Fungus isn't going to net you any profit. Pretty much the same thing with the trans potion. Also, there is no avatar you can get from the machine, except if you win a trans potion and give it to your pet (but you'll still get the avatar if you drink a trans potion that you've bought normally).
So, without further ado, below are the table and statistics. The table might get long after a while so you might want to go to statistics by the link. All numbers are neopoints unless otherwise stated. 'k' means thousand and 'mil' means million.

Statistics


Well, I guess it's pretty obvious that the Neocola Machine can only drain you of every Neopoint you have. It takes around 1,600 NP per token on average. The average number of neopoints gained is: 224.8 (It was around a hundred, but when I got a Baby Space Fungus it increased the average. When I got the Space Fungus, the average increased to about 410)

And, to send some more statistics at you, some of the trans potions do sell for a lot, some for millions. However, with a cost of 1,700 NP per token, you'd have to give 588 tries at the machine for a million neopoint potion and then you'd get even. At current prices your number of tries is around five times that, but putting in tokens over 2,500 times is going to get deadly boring. The statistics are probably less than one in 588. Not to mention that you could get a potion worth less than that. And that's after hours spent refreshing the Shop Wizard to get the lowest priced tokens and putting every single one of them in. Please. It's better really just to buy one.
