This Was Punishment For Complaing About the Wheel

... wasn’t it.

I’m mean lord have mercy this seems like a lazily planned event.

  • People did complain too much about the 3 act structure and wanted something different.
    Here it is.
  • Different was Stonecutters, Clash of Clones, the early Christmas and Valentine's day events where you could give neighbors gifts and cards. This is not different, this is Thanksgiving mini with different wrapping.

    If this is the gameplay for the entire event, then F for effort. But I'm holding out hope.
  • A second thread to complain about the event on the first day?

    You really are some entitled whiners.

    This event looks like the first phase is to help out noobs. There's a lot of bundles with stuff new players have been asking for.

    If you're some five year vet, and you're all **** hurt because they didn't craft some fancy new game just for you, THEN LEAVE. DON'T LET THE DOOR HIT YA.

    you people act as if you're the only players that matter. Plenty of newer players have no problem with this event. The whining is coming from crabby vets who have no right to complain as long as donut farming is allowed. You're getting everything for free, so shut up!

    It hasnt even been a day yet? Why... 😒 maybe somebody is spoiled.
  • Event structure doesn’t bother me. I like them all.

    My only complaint is the lack of Just Stamp the Ticket Guy. He needs to be added asap
  • I'm fine with the structure, and even with the prizes.

    What disappoints me is that new players don't even get to have lights on their houses, and I wish I had the chance to pick up some of the ones I had to pass on last year.
    I also wish the returning items were a bit better. I was hoping to grab some more reindeer, and I had to pass on the irregular tree farm last year, as well. 😕

    I also know a few new players that would have loved to grab some reindeer, and other wintery items.

    There's still stuff coming, so I'll be crossing my fingers for some of what I was hoping for.
    Still a bit of a sad start, though.

    Even though it was a real long shot, when I saw Kid First Industries on the content list I looked further and was a little disappointed security guard Gary Coleman and his sweet karate moves didn't come with it. If we ever get that guy (not gonna happen), he needs a visual task fighting Funzos.

    That's true for us but newer players have nothing to decorate with so far. There aren't any igc decorations to buy either. They're all in 50 donut bundles. Not very festive for new tappers.

    We’re not, though. I personally have gladly spent $600+ This YEAR on the game. I love supporting the community and as a Whale, I think we should be entitled to a bit more effort for our money. I wouldn’t complain as much about this game if they delivered what we all know they’re capable of delivering on a normal basis. We were all around for the stonecutters update- that isn’t difficult to emulate. Casual players come and go but us loyalists should be the ones they cater to. That means a more immersive experience, trivia questions, group prizes bringing back prizes for interactivity... totally doable.

    You're right, I didn't think of the newbies. It's weird that there aren't any decorations you can buy with cash.

    You can buy additional chestnut carts for cash afyer you get the 3 on the prize track. It's a little something!

    While I can see and understand your point, this is what the forum has asked for. For years people whined and cried about the events being either too tough, or not long enough. They complained that they couldn’t breeze through it and complete everything and hoard stuff.... so EA responded. The complainers demand easy, canned events, and that’s what they got.

    I do agree with you though. I would love to see some of the original ideas for events come back and spice things up. I really enjoyed the first couple years of events, not that I don’t like the current.

    But I completely agree with 4junk3000. People will never be happy because the event wasn’t catered to their sole, specific desires, and they are more than willing to tell everyone exactly how displeased they are about it....kinda reminds me of the JoshShearer days, when everything was just the absolute worst, even when he got his way.

    I’ve been playing this game for years; right from the start. It’s been a long while since we have had new items (for Halloween and Christmas). They just keep recycling decorations and items. While it’s great for newbies, the players who have been with this game the longest consistently get ignored. I’m not leaving the game; I’ve spent a lot of money and time - but I’m bored.
  • My only qualm is that it feels like a mini event back to back. It doesn’t feel like a BIG one.

    I liked the original events from the beginning, with the addition to craft items because it was fun. Or at least buy the items with new ones here and there.
  • Maybe 4junk3000 works for EA. He certainly is taking a few posts of displeasure, personally.

    Unfortunately, the vocal minority has been listened to. The events used to be just all one storyline but people rushed to the end of the storyline with donuts and then complained that it was boring to have nothing to do. So EA gave us the 3 act format. People complained about crafting and how long the events were, so now we have 4wks with nothing to do. Just send everyone on the 4 hr task and repeat.

    Those people would've hated Stonecutters. Every task was a different length, involved different characters and you had to correctly answer questions in order to properly task your town folk. THAT was a different event. That was fun. This is dull. It's not quit-worthy but it's not the answer to overly long events with forced bonus areas.

    A return to neighbor involvement might be one way to go.

  • I would love to see some neighbor involvement!

    Though...I may have to get some active neighbors for that... :/
