    Well, you took what could easily have been a favorite event and made it frustrating! I very much enjoy the multi-path events, that give us choices on how to proceed according to our own playing style and available time, and the puzzles are such fun, but then to go and tie everything to the timed boxes takes all the fun out of it! Only getting a few puzzle pieces at a time to start, and then having the amber tied to the cloud row at the end... most of us do not play this game to ADD pressure to our days. I do appreciate the very long time available, esp. the extra time in the MM area, but really, it's tedious. Things that have timers should be game enhancers, not necessities for completion! The graphics, as always, are excellent, and the overall concept is stellar - just remove the pressure factor and it would be perfect!

    Yes, I agree. I like the puzzle game a lot, but this just makes it painful. And I usually really like the spiral event too, but this is so annoying to have to click through each time just to even CHECK on it to see if can get the amber. And no fun rewards along the way.

    I have found out that we have to used 75 Amber to unlock the three stickers, one for each row to obtain other prizes >:(>:(

    What is the Point of having Stickers in any event, The is no benefit at all to me or any other farmer they are just collecting dust they are most useless reward in all events :cry::cry:

    It takes several days to obtain 75 Ambers for these three stickers at 5 Hour Interval I dislike we have to get up in the middle of the night for these Ambers as you need to think twice about our health and Enjoyment playing this game >:(:cry:

    Hopefully this Amber Feature is withdrawn in future events because it is the main Pitfall that prevents us enjoying this game

    I adore the graphics and enjoy the fact MM, main, and baha lands are all used.
    I love playing the puzzles
    but don't like that we have to wait for ambers to play them; that part is boring. It'd be better to just need more crops or mill items or something to play the puzzles.

    Just finished the last puzzle on my baby farm, my main farm finished this morning. Mixed feelings after an event that lasts for two weeks: collecting ambers to be able to turn them into puzzles pieces was a real bore. Not only did it take too muche time to event start playing them, but I was confused about how many puzzle pieces were needed to finish puzzles. I knew from the FAQ that some puzzles had 20 pieces, so after collecting 20 ambers I went and clicked on a puzzle and I saw in the bottom right corner of the puzzle's screen 20/20. My tought was "alright I can complete this one", but noooo, turned out it gave me 20 pieces out of 20 while needed 25 pieces to complete the first puzzle. -.-

    I didn't like that the 3 event crops had different growth times, the event should have made it possible for players to align crop growth with amber collecting. Else, the amber dispensers should have had timers of 22 or 23h to facilitate harvests. The cloud row given wasn't a "must have" as others we've seen in the past events. Adding insult to injury, the givers of 500 EP/TEP offered by the second half of the event felt like it added pressure on players to spend BBs (aka real money) to complete 12 of the 15 puzzles else it would have been done for nowt.

    I came to the conclusion that this event was made to be 2 weeks long because BP wanted to impliment a knew patch without letting players know and wanted to probably keep their dev team free in case of a major crash. MM being kept open for 2 weeks was a way to keep players satisfied. Although we've seen in the last year sooo many content additions that would scare away many new players.

    I didn't hate the event itself and using only one field at a time to grow event crops didn't hinder players from doing "normal" farming. The long event meant that new layers could even dream of getting to the end of this event, but then, why not use the event field for that as it was meant to? No thumbs up nor down on this one on my part.

    Also, I find it a bit absurd that once we completed a puzzle the event would close down the game's window instantaneously while in the ice cream type of events we have a 5s timer that stretched thing along. We cannot see the cool art that took time to create without having to force ourselves back into an already made puzzle window. Just a tought...

    Even with two weeks to collect the ambers this seems a little impossible without putting a ton of supergrow or harvest bonuses into it so you can get the amber givers done very early. I think I will manage to get the cloud row but it's going to cut very close.

    There's no way I am ever going to be able to collect something every five hours for two weeks. And I wouldn't really want to, it's more of a commitment that I like.

    I think you may be right :)

    I so agree! I want to see the finished puzzle for at least 30 seconds before it disappears never to be seen again lol.

    Really enjoyed the fact the event lasts 2 weeks, that in involved all 3 types of land. Mini event is fine, grow& throw is great. Not the biggest fan of " log into the game every 5h" mechanic, but the reasonable price for the amber in the shop makes it fine.

    I agree that the event lasting two weeks and needing only one field at a time made this very pleasant - the CR is pretty good, along with the other prizes. :)

    I was away at the start of the event but managed to catch up and will actually get all but one prize. Not bad in my opinion. I probably could have got that last prize if I had logged on later a couple of times or missed some family time but I decided I would do what I can and see how I go, maybe paying for Amber later if necessary for the essential prizes but all in all, not needed. Achieved what I wanted and more. :inlove:

    Only downside was remembering to collect the Ambers ... maybe once or twice a day would have been better but would I still have remembered? :music:
    Nice event, great graphics and sweet mini-game. ;)
