Or, as I've been saying for weeks, they could have let us earn more eggs.
Declining returns on visits is a major offender. 100 friends yielding 15 eggs each when visited would have been 1500 eggs per day, which would mean 3 boxes minimum per day. A guarantee number of 81 divided by three boxes per day is 27 days, or very approximately the length of the event. So everyone could have been guaranteed at least their common color prizes by the end.
On top of that, raise the odds on baskets just a little, with the important factor that only uncommon baskets should drop, and only common baskets would show up as trappable in neighbor's towns so no one is losing their precious uncommon eggs. One or two uncommon baskets dropping per day, plus easier trading, then uncommon prizes could also be virtually guaranteed by the end of the event if you play daily.
Finally, since the Faberg? egg wasn't available until the quest line was done, it should have been a gold egg generator. Say one spin a day once you find it or buy it. Not enough to reach the 81 boxes, but enough to give everyone a reasonable shot at a couple more desirable prizes. And instead of filling prize slots with common color eggs or baskets, replace them with gold eggs or remove them entirely.
It's far too late, now, but this could have been a fun event designed to last exactly one month and give everyone their effort's worth.
Hear, hear well said.
Numbers are just way to high in this event even for a twice a day player like myself.
I personally have been playing religiously on this holiday from day 1, and am not only disappointed with the low drop rates.... I am flat out PISSED. I checked my eggs at least 4-5 times a day and visited every friend every day. I have also blown 100 donuts on golden eggs(which yielded me 250 pink eggs 3 times, screw you for even putting that as a chance). Still no Sherry Bobbins, egg council guy, or hugs. I have been playing since about a month into this game being released and this is by far the biggest insult and giant "F YOU" to people that are proud when they worked hard enough to get all holiday items.
I don't know how much time and thought they put into this holiday, but it seems they didn't care and have FORCED people to spend money and buy donuts so they can get the items that some people were just "
lucky" enough to stumble upon.
Maybe they got some other plan, like buy what u didn't get 190 donuts per character and house. Cause after u've already spent donuts trying to get something and didn't get it then u'll be more likely to pay to get that thing. So they earn more money per item that way. .
