Thread: Christmas Rescue Event

  1. #151
    Yes, more than 400 pearls is too much. I also dumped that task.
    What worries me more is, I only get a max of 35 energy points, instead of 40 .....

At the beginning, many were here saying it was pleasant and (obviously not challenging for some since they finished in a day) I decided to give it a try. But then right away I got requests for tasks that would require so much they'd halt my game (and I did them; and they did halt my game, to the point that my resources were very short for a train, causing a 6 hour wait, were it not for the help of multiple generous neighbors). But I didn't play right when it was released so I wouldn't know if it was different before.
    Yes. I closed my game and my multiplier for the purple task said 1-2-3-4 and every task was valued at 40 points (or more, some were 15x4=60). I reopened my game and it changed to 1-1.5-2-2.5 and max was 32 points. And the tasks were significantly harder. Previously examples of tasks were feed 9 animals, collect 2 blue feathers, collect 15 eggs, send 1 ship to fructus, etc. Suddenly tasks became feed 45 animals, collect 7 blue feathers, collect 38 eggs, collect 67 milk, send 6 ships to fructus.

    This happened in my town that I had finished the event in AND my other town on another device that I had barely started the event on. It also happened to all my coop mates around the same time. So to me, this signified the developers making a change that affected everyone at the same time.

    Decided to just do it now....

    FREE CHESTS: LINK TO VIEW SCREENSHOTS.
    *Note: I took screenshots each time I opened a chest, but didn't start taking pics of the actual unopened chests until halfway through...so for some of these, I went back and just took screenshots of the areas the chests were and circled where they should be.


    PAY-TO-OPEN CHESTS: LINK TO VIEW SCREENSHOTS.

    Hope this helps!

    Exactly the same in my game!

    Yes, this also happened in my game. The tasks were also more excessive, but I thought it was just how it always worked.

    I got through chapter 2 so I don't really care if I finish the rest.

If they realized they accidentally made things too easy, they should have just chocked that up as a mistake and let players have the gift of an easy holiday event. Messing with things midway through and handing out 461 pearls tasks? Bah humbug.

    That's a behaviour by Playrix that I could only comment on in my mother tongue, and it would be deleted. Yes, that bad.

    As visual aid for what was described, just compare the pic in post 1 of this thread:

    and this one from my game this morning:

    Huge thumbs down, Playrix!

    So this is your reaction to all the positive feedback,
    BUT not enough TC spent on dumping tasks or what? How cheap!!

    Well, I don't feel as bad now. I thought I was just being a whiner and really the requests I was getting were typical (I have no idea what would be considered typical. this is my first event like this). Mine looked exactly like this, except I don't have ducks and my eggs were like 50 something. I totally had enough when I'd returned to my game, worked on energy, fed my animals, completed a task...and the next task was to feed 62 animals...I have 58 animals total and only 2 are cow sheds. Fortunately that's when I finished chapter 2 so I did nothing and watched videos instead.

    As there was no update between the beginning of the event (2 days ago?) and this morning, this behaviour must have been planned beforehand. It has been programmed by Playrix this way.

    Playrix can make these type of changes without issuing updates, or prior planning/programming. It would be pretty basic for them to decrease the amount of energy earned, and increase quantities of produce requested. I believe realizing how quickly players were completing a 10 day event (without needing to spend tcash), led them to make these alterations. As others have mentioned, I think they should left it as is. These changes are very unfair on players who have started the event later.

    But how are players going to complete all rounds when requests now take so much time? I am not even talking about 400 pearls, which must be a glitch.
