Wild Ones Strategy Practice before fighting – It is a good idea to practice fighting before entering into a real fight. In practice mode you can perfect your fighting skills without losing any Wild Ones money. Try another browser – While you can reduce the graphics quality to help speed-up page loading for Wild Ones, you might also try using another web browser. Opera and Google Chrome are two wonderful alternatives that should help reduce page loading times. Fight often – You should enter fight mode as often as you can to earn Wild Ones money and experience points. Some games may take a while depending on how many players you have and the time amount each Wild Ones player is provided. Wild Ones fan pages – Increasing the number of neighbors you have is critical to your success in the Wild Ones game as it unlocks Wild Ones items, permits you to earn more coins, gain more experience points, and level up faster. An easy way to find Wild Ones players is to join Wild Ones groups and fan pages. There you’ll be able to post your Facebook profile link to the wall so others can easily add you. Four players please – Wild Ones allows you to set the number of players in the game and setting it to a higher number can make the game faster. That is, with only four players you will not have to wait long before it’s your turn. Help and gift – Assisting your Wild Ones neighbors by visiting them and sending them gifts frequently will also benefit you. That is, you’ll earn Wild Ones points while doing so and it encourages your Wild Ones friends to return the favor and helping you too. Don’t autopost – While playing Wild Ones the game may serve a popup window and ask you to share your accomplishments with your fellow Facebook friends. We advise you to use this sparingly and disable auto-sharing permissions for Wild Ones. To learn how to do this, see our Facebook Guide. Invite messages – When sending out Wild Ones invites to people asking them to join you in the game should also include a brief message explaining why you are sending them such an invite. A simple message like “Wild Ones” or “Wild Ones add” will suffice and you’ll find that it will be much more successful than not including it. Use keyboard shortcuts – It’s a good idea to study your keyboard shortcuts before entering into battle. These shortcuts will help you move faster during fights which will increase your chances of winning Wild Ones fights.
