    I dislike - not only in this event but many - that drops only come from crops and trees. What happened to stables?

    Too complicated, too many crops. I will go back to normal farming. Thanks for ruining what started as a fun event on the event field.

    This faq is difficult for me to read due to spoilers because I cannot see them. I agree that 7 hours growing time is to high. I will start this event but I suspect that I will become bored with it very quickly. The rewards seem to be good but IMO impossible to attain without using RM.

    My eyesight isnt too bad @LillyMae2016 and I still had to enlarge the screen, so I am with you there. And being in a table like that you cant just use the "find on page" command because it doesnt work.

    This is a Hard level event, tied in with a couple of others and if you want all 4 compasses to take to the Aqua event it is going to be hard going.
    Full field of 1x1 plots is netting 29-33 lifejackets, so without all the extra boosts (manure is sold out and I simply cannot feed supergrow or suzie's to every planting) it is going to be extremely difficult, if not impossible to complete. I totally agree that it may need RM.

    Just another ridiculous event. I planted the 10 seeds I was given but will not even harvest it... something like 70,000 crops required and who knows how many drops... I hope you are not planning to convert this game to the new platform and it will be discontinued (no flash support). After playing for 10 years it is very hard to just stop playing.

    Agree ag56. After 10 years of playing it is very difficult to just quit playing. These events are getting more and more ridiculous. Long growing crops, so many twists and turns in a hard event that it is becoming to confusing for me, confusing faqs, linking events that have parts that are no way doable, teasing great prize rewards that are not possible to get for a normal none paying player like me...., And the worst yet is needing to use RM for baskets in order to even have a prayer of completing an event. The market is dry of manure again. I am truely Frustrated and not happy. Farmerama events are becoming just as crazy as the rest of the world is right now. There is very little escape from life stress in Farmerama any more. I am waiting to play the upcoming Baby Boom event and then I may avoid Farmerama for awhile. This event is the worst yet. I am quitting this event and any other event involved with Marine Mania. I am so sad not to be able to fish very often this time........

    This event seems unnecessarily complicated. Again, I have to ask - do the devs even PLAY this game, ever? The only plus that I can say, is that drop seem to be plentiful. My drops are far outstripping my crops to this point. Hopefully that continues. And having an event that is this intense, while at the same time having MM AND a MM event... it's just harsh.

    I couldnt work out how I was missing the end of events. The finish time is 4am for me. Grateful for the extra 8 hours but I am asleep for 6 of them. Same for start time, 8pm, get a crop planted then its off to bed. An awful lot of beginning time lost. It would even out for most though.

    Wow we are all so unhappy you would think something will change. Can you even get fishing cloud rows if you don't do these other events. I am so lost and frustrated I am about to go back and farm my way and forget about events all together.

    While it's true this event can't be completed through normal means (using just water, manure, and CAC), there is no need to spend real money to finish hard events like this one if you take full advantage of the [free] opportunities that exist within the game. Some players have already completed the current event just by using some of the resources they've accumulated over the years from other events and FSQs. I'm a non-paying player myself and won't have too much trouble finishing this one.

    I personally like how this event is structured. It's very easy to get the 2 compasses needed to access the bubble with Aqua Mania CR 1, and the average player should be able to reach the first two Water Skiing Spectacle CRs without even bothering with the Lost Tickets short timed quest. And I like how completing the quest isn't necessary even for those of us going all the way in the main event, as long as we do the bare minimum to get the new seeds. However, I'm annoyed by how the second set of event crops is an hour longer than the first set - 7 hours is already too long, 8 hours is just... ugh.

    Not sure how I feel about having an MM event on at the same time. On the one hand, I need to use harvest bonuses for the Water Skiing Spectacle event and it's great being able to kill two birds with one stone. On the other hand, the manure situation is so bad right now and a concurrent MM event certainly doesn't help.

    Its funny when I saw the unnecessary complications of this event, I too wondered if the developers play these events. I was also wondering, maybe wishful or naive thinking, that these events are planned so far ahead of time that they havent yet been able to incorporate all the feedback we have given!!! Way too many things to accomplish. The resources are needed on multiple layer events. I havent completed an event in forever. I love the fishing event but not this way...way too hard. its a shame bc I am getting bored. I havent rushed home or awake to open this game up in awhile. I even lost my sign in streak.

    Old time complaint in the form of "don't request rebuild of all fields for single event" applies here again. The event was completely ruined for me by dropping from all fields even where you can't plant event crops but not dropping from all facilities, in this case not dropping from stables etc. I was ok to partially rebuild one or two of the fields, certainly not all 3 on both sides. As a result I am not getting enough drops and the whole event is useless because I'm not getting anywhere with it. This question is probably redundant but what was the point of not including stables in drops? It does not do any good to anyone and certainly does not enhance the game play to bully players into rebuilding all 6 fields just for the drops without which the event cannot successfully progress. If it were not for this issue, I would have liked the event. As it is I'm giving it big thumbs down.

    Terribly constructed event. 2 high end events running back to back means there was no manure anywhere. If you want the drops you strip your stables out. Still not enough drops. Cannot run SG or SSG for the average low - mid level player and now that there is manure available it is 1MILLION CC for 100 units. Its impossible to buy, again, for the normal level player.

    This is a terrible event. Even with all the extras high level players have, the drops are too low. It's impossible to finish without spending RM. I will not be able to finish this event in time. I refuse to buy their baskets!!! I buy the harvester; that should be enough. Also, spending all the SG, SSG and turbo mulch I have saved on this event is foolish because there is no way I can finish. Then, I would have depleted my storage for nothing. I'll save them for some event that is realistic. Because this event - is ridiculous!
