Tips about the Event

* all of the game mechanics of how to play a leaderboard are on the various screens in your game.

* The more points you gain, the further you move up the Goal slider. If you reach certain milestones, you get a prize (details below).

* There are only 20 players in a group, randomly selected around your level.

Troubleshooting!
If you do not want your facebook picture showing on the leaderboard ranking screen, (in your game) go into Menu/Settings in your game and turn off Facebook. There is no reason to have this feature turned on anyway as Castle doesn't have a FB interface. Any problems, please post in the Bugs Forum, not in thread.

So am I understanding this right? We're meant to duke it out with our beloved neighbors so that we can earn a walker that offers nothing other than it's presence in our realms? This is insanity! But on the upside I can sit this out without any worries. Thanks for making it easy not to play s8.

:D This explains why there was no splash screen teaser this time. I imagine it would not have been well received. :rolleyes: I am out. Any points gained will be unintentional, simply by doing normal collections.

Good luck to those who are interested, and once again, if you are in my group, seriously, do not worry about me competing. (bingo chips)

The goal prizes don't even look that great: a banner, a word in a stone, animated knights fighting and a princess that drops "jewels, silver, glimmerdust and petals." I'm don't even think I want to try for those. It's very probable that I'll happily sit with 0 points for the next week.

i didn?t even know this had started - no story splash. But happy to join you on the sidelines for this one. I am sick of having no time to restock and progress the main storyline between events.

I am sitting this one out as well, I have left a monster on board and chopping wood or rock is not needed anyway, so it will be no problem at all to sit this one out. Wish it was a monsterhunt instead.

I am an odd duck in that I do like the leaderboard, but this is weird to make a walker the grand prize. Who wants that? It doesn't actually give you anything or do anything... it's a nice to have, but it seems weird as the main grand prize. The other grand prize gives petals... ?

Maybe I've just been playing too long but that seems lame. A feast or something relating to the spellbound and earthen beams would be useful, or something that can contribute to the mermaid goals.

I'll be playing for a bit for the sake of the trade tickets, but just here and there to see where things may end up.

Is it weird to not have 20 people in your group?

The algorithm that finds at least 5 kingdoms with 400 Alicorns takes time to work. You will soon see more on leaderboard.

More will be added to your group. No one is 100% sure on how it works but it is known that you are only added to a group on your first log in after the event has started.

Ooooo so I probably should not have attempted to do anything right now and sat at 0. I'll probably be paired with people who typically compete big time now. Ha! I guess I'll just sit it out if anyone hits 1000 by tomorrow.

Absolutely zero interest in that grand prize and I hate leaderboard events :( And so close the the last one! I hope this isnt a new trend. Ill collect points long enough to get the "damsel" cuz she cute and I think she and Aetas would get along, but then ill be sitting out too

For those interested, iceland poppy shrubs also drop summer petals

I also noticed that for this LB they've raised the price on the gold boost from 15 gems to 25 and that they've put most of the crafts in the Magic Forge where people can't use rune to boost the speed. I mean, most people don't like LBs to begin with, but they seem to have gone out of their way to make the most pointless, frustrating LB for those that are willing to participate either out of boredom or because they legit want the 'prizes.' Shame on you s8.

Just curious, has anyone else lost the Baron in the Town Hall store? Is there an expiration date on the Baron?
All I have is the new (outrageous) gem walker :D for this event and Maya. Still have 1250 crowns as I was apparently shorted 250 from the last event. Shrugs.

Ps Thanks S8 for making this one super easy to ignore. :cool: I’m glad it isn’t tied to a monster hunt this time.

Seems fair, yes?

I have scoured through the prizes looking for something I am even a little interested in. Nothing! At least so far.
I did open the first chest and I got 10 energy crate. Next prize is a royal banner. Really?
I'll continue making trade tickets the way I usually do, (they're the only thing worthwhile) using less energy.
I'll look again to see if anything is worth the effort. But I believe not.
Major fail!

I would love to have the pink princess but NOT if it means I have to play an LB. Guess this week i?ll take a much needed break for RL and pile up my energy.

I don't care about the leaderboard, but the princess is a drop when you get 3000 points, regardless of rank.
That wouldn't be so bad except to get 3000 points in seven days is 430 a day, and at two energy per point, out of my league.

Unfortunately they are just doing what they have been doing in Dragon Story and Fantasy Forest. Leaderboard, Community event, and "Storybook" type events back-to-back and there they sometimes overlap. Once again, the artwork is very well done and IF this was not a Leaderboard, I would be interested as a number of the items would fit in quite well in my Knights corner.
BUT I WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY LEADERBOARD

I wonder if they will have weekend warrior. It made sense in the challenges where they were trying to level the playing field between players with lots of alis and those without, but here they try to level the playing field by putting us in groups.

I seriously hope all the points I have already, are not gone when you guys reboot everything. I am betting they discovered something that was being given away too cheaply and are already readjusting the prices. or limiting drops. or both.
AND NOW THE GAME WON'T EVEN OPEN AT ALL!! I GET THE CASTLE STORY SPLASH SCREEN THEN THE APP QUITS.

Maintenance right after a goal release means they've screwed something up that's in favor of the player & now need to correct it. Or....they just plain screwed up the goal somehow.

Maintenance right after a goal release means they've screwed something up that's in favor of the player & now need to correct it. Or....they just plain screwed up the goal somehow.
...or maybe they realized NO ONE wants another LB event so they are withdrawing it and issuing something new??? (wishful thinking, I know!!��)

I played ha more than 5 years and it's going to be the 1 event that I will not play ,,,,
Breaking stones and chopping wood, for 7 days, for what ????
a princess who gives petalas? No, thank you but I do not need petals.
stay at 1 in lb? No thanks, some other neighbors have more than 70 allicorns, I will not waste my time ,,,
the system is in maintenance, I hope it will be to make improvements in this event ... maybe a monster hunt like last time ,,, if not I will continue to play ?normal?, and I am out of this event

My Neighbors can rest easy. Not even gonna try...

Now, I thought I'd try to come bottom of the leaderboard with zero points, but it's not as easy as that and I might not manage to come last. I've already picked up a few points while trying to advance the mermaid goals. Will just need to try and ignore this one. I hate leaderboard events, it's laughable to think we'll all be ok with chopping rocks again. All those awful crafts following on an event which had terminally boring crafts! And the prizes aren't even tempting.

Omg why are they doing this to us? Now we get half the points for chopping and slaying monsters and it’s not even a combo with monster hunt where we were getting tokens as well. I don’t even know how to feel about this.. do they not want us to enjoy the game? We express very clearly what we don’t enjoy and what we love so why? Why not give us a chapter event instead? Haven’t had one of those in a while.

And I so wanted that banner for a prize and the jousting knight for only 1400 gems what a steal of a deal! Are you kidding me?

My confusion is because the only other time a walker was available to purchase with gems, it was that Woodland bear thing and it was meant to boost your drop rates for the event. But this walker's inventory card just says he's a walker sooo why would we want to spend that many gems on him? Maybe if his presence on my board doubled my energy drops I'd consider it but as he is now? Uh-uh.

I am a collector at heart and I always try to have at least one of everything on offer but I refuse to spend gems (especially 1400) on something that doesn't provide something of value to my realm. This is also the first time that they've had the LB 'prize' for sale which seems unfair to all those poor people wasting their time and energy (possibly gems) on trying to 'win' him. The more I look at the event the more issues I see within it.

Haven’t had one of those in a while.

I was worried they would make the miscellaneous widgit we needed to collect, collectible. Widgits that would actually drop when collecting from an item.

But thankfully that is not the case. My Iceland Poppys are averaging about a 25% collection rate. (4 energy used to gain 1 Widgit) (Thats... two? collections from the recent Energy droppers?) (I mean, if we're REALLY lucky, didn't one of them drop one energy?)

Ya know what... I'm not voicing my opinion, because it doesn't matter.

I'm not wasting my time saying what I like or dislike. I'm not wasting my time filling out surveys. I'm keeping my two cents because you aren't utilizing them well.

When you receive a prize chest, the chest doesn't go into your inventory, the prize within the chest does. In this case the prize just so happens to also be a chest, the "Point Chest' that is available for purchase in the market. That's a bad setup on s8's end and is super confusing. The only thing you'll receive for chopping the chest is 4 points per chop.

You're right. I just checked and the LB prize is called "Champion Knight" and the one in Town Hall is "Jousting Knight." This just makes it even more confounding to me though. What is the difference between the two? Is there a difference? Are they both just walkers or does one offer something the other does not? So weird and seemingly pointless to me.

Only 1 crest needed, but anyway a 4hr craft. Certainly waiting for energy to buildup holds back as well. If only more hours were given!!! It's so simple to resolve. Those from more East on the map will be certainly be cut out too. It's sad being excluded, as is an international game and offered worldwide. Time ago this has NEVER happened.. only recently. I personally feel like junk and kicked aside after years of play & pay.

Glad I didn?t find these til 30mins ago now, now I also know why goals kept popping up completed. I was weirded out because I saw the gent rather than my lady ruler. Thought it was a glitch. Anyway, as I?m in the UK I?m also not in a position to finish these. Just chopped what I wanted not knowing there were goals in the book. Lol.

Regarding the gems walker in the town square, I suspect the option is there for anyone that wants a new walker that doesn?t win. This way they still get a walker. Though I?ve got 800 gems sitting waiting for me to purchase a new weekly Ali, I don?t buy gems so will not be purchasing gems to get him. I want to win him.

I?ve also had a message from one of the other guys in my group. He wants us all to win the 1st prize. So I?m already in, think one other guy is. We?ll see if it works out this time. 👍

They really do just act in opposite to the surveys....why else would they do another LB so quickly after the last one? Usually it's been a year in between, and now a month?

It was probably already programmed (or at least almost finished) before they saw the survey results from the last leaderboard. Software typically takes a while. I highly doubt they're working on next fortnight's event right now, they're probably working on an event that's scheduled for couple of events in the future. Analysing the survey results and changing course takes a while too, I imagine they wouldn't want to waste work that was already completed or even halfway complete.

You can make trades on the "points" page of the event screen. But it seems it only shows 3 options at a time so if you fill one, a different item will show that may not have been displayed before. There's stuff to craft in the workshop and potion shop too

Lol i had the same thought about timeline of changes and im no s8 employee. It just makes sense
I'm not an S8 employee either - I'm just a player who knows a number of people working in computer programming and who knows a bit about business and and market research. It really the most logical conclusion (that this event was ready/almost ready to go when they got the survey results and they decided that they didn't want to waste all that work). Also it's entirely plausible that they are not looking at the survey results immediately and only looking at them after they have several events worth of survey results (depending on what sort of data they want from these surveys ie comparing the response between events would require them to look at several event surveys at once).

I'm surprised that more people didn't come to the same conclusion but maybe they did but they didn't feel like saying that.

Sorry but that like no one likes LB is kinda clear since the first one from last year, so that?s when they should have stopped doing them, if so there would have never been the chance that a LB follows this stupid last event

One thing I give S8, somehow I’m never interested in the first rank prizes, they’ve been kinda weird, so I never feel like I’m missing out. No pressure. And you don’t have to go against others to have some fun. These wooden chests are pretty. I don’t know how it started, but I’m collecting chests in my game. The sword in a stone looks fun too. Don’t know how far you can get with only relaxed play. This time I’ll try to find out.

It's also possible that the people who post on here are a tiny minority of the players. Whether they enjoy leader board events or not, other players may be spending in order to achieve. S8 won't care whether we like the game as long as we spend, and it's entirely possible that lots of people who are not here spend loads on leader board events.

My problem is a different one... Has all that glitches turned off the dark pollen that should be dropping from shrubs for the goal I'm on?

S8 won't care whether we like the game as long as we spend, and it's entirely possible that lots of people who are not here spend loads on leader board events.

My problem is a different one... Has all that glitches turned off the dark pollen that should be dropping from shrubs for the goal I'm on?

That's true that we're a bit of a minority here on the forum but I find it hard to believe that people are going to spend as much money trying to earn a walker as they would if it was a genuine prize that had drops and added value to their realms. Of course, there are always those that like the competitive nature of the LBs, I guess we just have to accept that they are now part of the game and enjoy the downtime when they come around. Hopefully they won't be showing up on a monthly basis like they do in DS and FFS.

I'm still getting dark pollen from the shrubs so perhaps you're just having a dry spell at the moment. If you've got the runes to spare, don't forget that the Harvest Champion Boost will also double the dark pollen drops. I feel your pain as I'm still cranking out the Witch's Scent and will be for a long while yet.

I don't have the runes - my elves are notoriously mean - and double nothing is still nothing. 30 odd collections and no pollen can't be right.

Edit to add: I finally got one! Is that the normal drop rate?

I am assuming that from S8's point of view the leader board events are a success otherwise they wouldn't do them. That everyone here hates them is a minor nuisance if they bring in money.

One can make knights crest and jousting armor in magic forge and neither shows in royal faire as a valid trade item. Does anybody know what to do with them?

As you cash the ones showing in royal fairs they are replaced by a new item needed and eventually those you mention will appear in the trade

All three of These. In general, forums represent less than 5% of traffic on a given website. Since this is a game and not really a website, even less. "We" are a vocal minority. It is perfectly honorable for a company to want to make money, and sensible for them to pursue whatever appeals to paying customers. We get to play for free if we want - we have freedom and are not excluded from parts of the story if we don't pay.

It's clear that y'all "don't like" leaderboards. But I do want that cute damsel. :-)

Be aware that people are very mean and competitive on the leaderboard , I'm a long term player and I see a lot and this is not good, placing neighbor against neighbor I will not compete in these again , S/8 know there are a lot of new players , but us older players know better ,your right it's our choise to play or not or spend money or not ,and I will leave it there since I can say so much more !

I submit several items crafted and get points, total updates correctly, but then I carry on playing and within a few seconds, my points total has reduced. Submit more crafted items, get more points, then those too disappear after a while as well!

I saw several people report this in the last LB and the response was that it takes a few moments for your points to make it to the server. Maybe the next time you submit an item for points, try not doing anything for a few moments and maybe even visit a neighbor to force a connection with the s8 server before submitting anything else. It seems that the most rollbacks on points occur when there is little time between them.

This server syncing issue is also why people who are trying to 'win' the LB shouldn't wait until the last minute to try and score a bunch of points. The points often don't go through properly and lots of players were upset that they essentially wasted gems/money to submit lots of crafts at the end only to find out that they didn't count. The moral of this post is that slow and steady is the way to go if you're actively competing in an s8 Leaderboard.

ps - After speaking with Thurston... and Sabina, we will both be setting down our tankards of fresh Rooty Beer and spending some time irl building a Fort in the evening.

I spoke with Bran as well. He quickly admitted to knowledge of this. Bran's best description was *burp* ... and while I admit to still learning, I believe it translates best to "Nite Forting." As explained, we get to hunt for a treasure, build a small castle, and then defend it from invaders!

It all sounds quite stimulating.

As we we're standing outside saying our good nights, Kaz wandered by, and joined in. After what turned into a "farmer's farewell", (That's where you end up standing outside by your Carriage talking and saying good night, longer than you sat at the table earlier, talking and saying good night.)

Kaz asked if he could join me! Surprised... but pleased that my efforts to get everyone in the kingdom at least pulling in the same direction... Not going to go so far to say as "working together". Not just yet, but I can see hope!

I was about to say yes when Thurston, always wary of the trolls attempting to influence governing body, *sigh*, said if Kaz can come along "HE" wants to come along as well... Thurston... all you had to do was ask.

Okie doke. We pack today and the three of us will be leaving when ready.

See you Sunday evening!

pps - OH! I forgot to mention, while we are gone, I'm leaving Bran in charge.

It's not even a whole weekend. Old Thomas said he would make himself available should Bran have any questions.

What could possibly go wrong.

Well Chief.. I boosted my work shops and also potion shops too.. 'cause I want to go to sleep! It's past 11pm and I can't get the goals book requests finished! Tomorrow will be too late as only 3hrs left. Again.. who's in Europe have wrong timing to finish goal comfortably.
Could you lend me some Silver please? LOL! Seems will be a long night.. I keep redoing the steps.


If silver were still a thing give my MOonbeam, I would gladly make it rain reflections of Glimmerdust off piles of Silver Ore, for you.

Only 1 crest needed, but anyway a 4hr craft. Certainly waiting for energy to buildup holds back as well. If only more hours were given!!! It's so simple to resolve. Those from more East on the map will be certainly be cut out too. It's sad being excluded, as is an international game and offered worldwide. Time ago this has NEVER happened.. only recently ...........

Edited to say... seems the 5hrs is continuous... whatever.. the timer seems broken.

You can make trades on the "points" page of the event screen. But it seems it only shows 3 options at a time so if you fill one, a different item will show that may not have been displayed before. There's stuff to craft in the workshop and potion shop too
Just noticed that the trades change out after trading. Thanks.

Thanks :) I didn?t have this trouble on previous LBs, so hadn?t experienced it before. Will have to go slow instead this time. Not actively competing in leaderboard (but want to get to 3000 for the goals), so fortunately not too bothered about lost points, just slightly annoying to lose all the extra craft items and will now take up more resources, energy and time (really annoying when item took 4 hours to craft and it just disappears with no points awarded and you have to start again for another 4 hours!).

I?m sitting out too! My points will be gathered in normal play. Would like to build up my energy to play an event worth playing. If the grand prize doesn?t drop energy or gems, what?s the point? I put all my walkers away. They are annoying. Best thing S8 did for this game was to allow us to tuck away the walkers. Why would I want another one to tuck away?

I barely know what I'm doing in this game so I knew something was wrong because I've been in the top 3 for almost 24 hours.

I think I'm going to stop playing these events because it's so disheartening to have so little control over the quantity of drops and which monsters are spawned. I'm sure everyone's gone through the "using most of your energy to fight 3 consecutive non-event monsters then wasting your last few energy to get exp points and no drops".

Maybe I’ll try for the princess. Even the weeds for WW give shields! Had a bunch of trees which needed to go, cluttering my kingdom. Definitely there will be zero gems or dollars spent on this one. I will use WW energy for milk and eggs, since I need more expansions. Or on things Mermaid.

I am tickled pinko because glimmer trolls are spawning from these rocks! I had a very long drought before the horsie event, and the trolls I got all left their troll essence at home. *Finally* I'm moving forward on my first whack at Desert Sands (no barracks.) Thurston is gonna have to figure out his own Chill Potion.

BTW, whoever asked if the guy drops alicorns should win forum post of the month. So much laughing!

Beware there is a cap on the royal shields of 99. I thought since it was a material we would need plenty of for this venture that the cap would be higher. But after spending both of my unmlimited energies I received from the weekend warrior quests I checked my storage to find I only have 99. All that chopping for what? Thanks guys. Well at least I got more points for the Royal Faire!

05-18-18, 12:54 PM
I just did the first set of WW. For me it will mean the difference between getting the princess and not, so I am happy to do it. Chopped a bunch of mermaid stuff, chopped twenty rocks or so. I thought I would try the refill method, but I won't do it again. I got refills for 13 minutes, which is better than 10, but I wasted more than three minutes waiting for it to refill each time. I wasn't really focusing on getting points, but I got 201, which is less than I wanted. Maybe for the next ten I will just chop rocks. I should be able to use about 1000 energy on rocks, which should give me 500 points towards the princess.

I was going to try and not get any points in this LB but that's not what ended up happening. LOL, I swear CS is the only game where they make it virtually impossible to sit the LB out. I planned on using this time to get my inventory stocks back up to my standards but nearly everything I do is adding points! Then I saw someone (sorry, can't recall who) point out that the Darling Damsel would be good company for Aetas and... well she has been the odd girl out in my realm. I felt bad that she was the only character on my board without a partner so I figured I had to reevaluate my goals for this LB with these new circumstances in mind. So my current LB goals are to get Aetas her friend and do all my chopping during WW so that I won't keep accidentally scoring points for the rest of the event. Who knew trying not to win was gonna take so much time and consideration? Not me!

I submit a crafted item and the points are added to my total, but after less than 1 second the points get taken away again (I’ve not selected anything else within this time) and the item is lost/wasted. I have to keep starting again, so I’m not getting anywhere and I’m wasting loads of time, energy and items!

So I've done both parts of the WW, and have 2,541 points now. I'm only going for the goals, for I hate competing against my neighbors.

Put something like 2x 40 rocks out, parked a monster, and chopped something like 80 rocks, which is like 800 points. I started this event with something like 1.600 points, and worked the rest.

Once I have the goals, I only collect ennergy for the next event.

Good luck on getting that Princess. I'm sticking to my fighting knights goal. But! I've learned things can change.
My game. My rules. My gameplay.
Like I've said before I had nothing else to do unless I wanted to make bait.
Which I had been doing now for a while. I got 5 of those super baits. Whoopy do!

Then I saw someone (sorry, can't recall who) point out that the Darling Damsel would be good company for Aetas and... well she has been the odd girl out in my realm. I felt bad that she was the only character on my board without a partner so I figured I had to reevaluate my goals for this LB with these new circumstances in mind. So my current LB goals are to get Aetas her friend and do all my chopping during WW so that I won't keep accidentally scoring points for the rest of the event. Who knew trying not to win was gonna take so much time and consideration? Not me!

Same here, I thought I would b safe doing the mermaid stuff nope they all droped points ,

I never got my second set of unlimited energy on this one. Made all the goals and it disappeared and went back to 21 energy.

I'm not really thinking of this as a LB event....to me it's just a gift of $10,000 in free coins.

Don't forget a free trade ticket too.lol

I just won the sword in the stone. I set it out, but the game reset and its gone! I force closed, but it's not on my board, or in my inventory. The LB goals show I earned it, and I have over 1000 points. Anyone else have this issue?

Hit 1025 points and I was "awarded" the Sword in the stone. Not sure if the goal amount is ong, or if the issue was just fixed, and timing is coincidental

Count me in: I'm joining the ranks of those sitting OUT. :p

:mad: And, now, I too, have fallen prey to earning points via working on my mermaid quests... (But still in last place on my leader boards. Here's hoping I can maintain that while fixing up my kingdom. )

Well, by using the boost during 'WW' I was able to reach the final milestone and get the Damsel. She is the perfect compliment to Aetas who is so happy to finally have a friend to hang with. The damsel really is quite pretty and even with sub-par drops she'll have a place on my board so long as Aetas is out, they're clearly cut from the same cloth and could totally be cousins.

Unfortunately, between the boost and an total of 30 minutes of free energy from 'WW' instead of the usual twenty, I'm now at the lead of my group. *smh* I've parked a beast and won't touch anything choppable for the rest of the event so those wanting the prize should have no problems surpassing my score over the next 5 days, hopefully. Best wishes to those still collecting!

If you get points or petals etc. it just gets added to your tally. It's only when your treasure chest gives you a Points Chest or energy crates, that it shows up in your inventory.

I received all the small prizes, but not the 'figure' prizes.
That's:
1000 points - Sword in the Stone
2000 points - Knights Training
3000 points - Darling Damsel
The first prize at 250 points - Jousting Banner, I did receive.
Since I've not seen them appearing after decent waiting time.. I'll file a report.

Just got a daily goal about the marketplace, where it seems I'm encouraged to part with a massive amount of resources in return for a handful of coins and a few wheat (which I'm already maxed on). Can someone tell me the purpose of this, please?

Someone should also teach S8 how deals and bargains are supposed to work: the idea is that both sides should get something they need/want/value.

The knights training is 2x2 and has no drops.
So only the Darling Damsel has drops with an 8hr timer.

The names for the 1st and 2nd prizes have been changed as they had 2 different names. ;)
The Jousting Champion Citizen is the correct name and has the red sash.
The Jousting Knight you can buy with Gems through the Town Square has the blue sash.

How did you get to 3000 points so quickly? Do you use boosts or lots of alicorns?

No,there is a trick. First, put a monster in the kindom (by harvest corn),then buy rocks as many as you can,put them in the kingdom. Second,finish the weekend unlimited energy task (to gain unlimited energy for 20 min. Third,spent 25 gem to get 3X points. Finally start cutting the rocks as fast as you can,each rock gives you 30 points(I cut approximatelly 100 rocks).

I prepare my game board for the WW each Friday so to optimize the output for the current event. And yes, the bulk of the work is hammering on rocks as fast as you can. This time I use the 2x boost as the WW is only 2x10 minutes. I pause between chapters because you need to restock your board first. Here I just rushed to the 3000 and stopped. I might get a few point along the line by doing normal harvesting or beating a spawn or two a day. As I had crafted a few goodies I used them during the boost time to add a few more points to the counter. You just need to prepare your self a bit before going into action.

That's true that we're a bit of a minority here on the forum but I find it hard to believe that people are going to spend as much money trying to earn a walker as they would if it was a genuine prize that had drops and added value to their realms. Of course, there are always those that like the competitive nature of the LBs, I guess we just have to accept that they are now part of the game and enjoy the downtime when they come around. Hopefully they won't be showing up on a monthly basis like they do in DS and FFS.

We all know some spend huge amounts I remember seeing posts in the past of people finishing on 20,000-40,000 points.
I don?t understand it, I really don?t. Thankfully one of our board members started what I?ve tried to achieve since the 2nd leaderboard event and currently there are about 5 of us aiming for 3,000 we?ll see how it pans out. There is at least 1 in the top 3 that so far hasn?t said yes let?s do that. But as I say we?ll see how it works. Again the event finishes at least 2/3 hours after my bedtime so I won?t be able to do anything about it at the final knockings if it all goes sideways.

It's so nice to see everyone coming together like that! That's the sort of LB I could easily get behind. Most of my grouping have replied that they're not interested in trying for the prize either so not much has been happening on our board after Friday's WW.

This is so frustrating!!!

I submit a crafted item and the points are added to my total, but after less than 1 second the points get taken away again (I?ve not selected anything else within this time) and the item is lost/wasted. I have to keep starting again, so I?m not getting anywhere and I?m wasting loads of time, energy and items!

Your points are not gone. I think there is an issue with the counter. I experienced the same problem as you: 'delivering' items on the Royal Faire 'Points' tab. The items are gone, the counter goes up, wait a few seconds, the counter goes down again. Or leave the Royal Faire screen and watch the counter on the right side of the main screen.

I solved it by force-closing the game and then opening again. My counter then showed the right amount of points.

I am really enjoying this one! My general Kingdom work is keeping me nicely around the 15-17th place mark. My land hasn't been so productive or profitable in months as it is after just two days of not doing a timed goal. I've made significant progress on the mermaid goals and a lovely stockpile of feasts for future quests.

I'm truly grateful to S8 for running something I can be so certain I don't want to do. It's a brilliant break from the pressure.

Did we find out what the 1400-gems walker does? A boost, storyline, anything?

So far we've not seen anything official and the back of the card in the Town Square just says he roams our kingdoms. The other walkers that were more than just new citizens plainly said so on the card: Maya and the Guardsman listed the items that opened with them and the Woodland guy said it helped boost the event drops. All of this leads me to believe that he's just a walker. I would love to here something official on him but I'm not holding my breath.

I also wonder about the text that claims *Citizen will remain permanently* as I've not seen that before. Do they mean if someone is hard-core enough to purchase him that he'll stay after the event? If so, why bother printing that because all walkers are permanent. Or do they mean he'll be available for purchase after the event? I shouldn't be surprised by the vagueness of the new releases as it's practically SOP by now. Yet even after all this time I still find myself shocked that s8 doesn't give better descriptions of the things they want us to purchase.

I am playing but not with any gusto, really just using up energy each time I go in because I have finished the storyline. The only benefit I see are the expansion permits because these seem to take me forever and I haven't fully expanded yet BUT it seems every time an option for using wisp or living wood as trade for points in the LB that I get points and then a reset occurs I lose the points but also lose the items???

The only benefit I see are the expansion permits because these seem to take me forever and I haven't fully expanded yet BUT it seems every time an option for using wisp or living wood as trade for points in the LB that I get points and then a reset occurs I lose the points but also lose the items???
This time the prizes seem to be only trade tickets, not expansion permits like last LB.

My prizes are missing too.. I wrote in the Bugs and Issues thread and also filed a report to S8 Support. Since it's Saturday I don't think there will be help, it might take a couple days.
Then I might write a bug report as well. Thank you.

So far we've not seen anything official and the back of the card in the Town Square just says he roams our kingdoms. The other walkers that were more than just new citizens plainly said so on the card: Maya and the Guardsman listed the items that opened with them and the Woodland guy said it helped boost the event drops. All of this leads me to believe that he's just a walker. I would love to here something official on him but I'm not holding my breath.

I also wonder about the text that claims *Citizen will remain permanently* as I've not seen that before. Do they mean if someone is hard-core enough to purchase him that he'll stay after the event? If so, why bother printing that because all walkers are permanent. Or do they mean he'll be available for purchase after the event? I shouldn't be surprised by the vagueness of the new releases as it's practically SOP by now. Yet even after all this time I still find myself shocked that s8 doesn't give better descriptions of the things they want us to purchase.
What if It means that you cannot ?store? him like the others? 😱🙈😂😂😂

Will never spend that much gems, unless I had more than that earned from the game... right now I am *mad* at the missing confermation-button....

Was it expansion permits last time? (Thinking of the one with the fox-bird) I thought similar to this one - just trade tickets.... and for some reason it seems third place is ?worst? prize.... but I don?t intend to get that far... just get the damsel (in distress) and stop collecting points... ❤️😊

So it looks like all of my other trees (icy willow, crystallized tree and faerie?s breath) are all still choppable. Only the blossoming willow is no longer choopable. Will this be fixed after this LB S8?

It's so nice to see everyone coming together like that! That's the sort of LB I could easily get behind. Most of my grouping have replied that they're not interested in trying for the prize either so not much has been happening on our board after Friday's WW.

I tried to start a coop in my LB but failed. Currently winner is around 5000 points. I am just a few points away from my darling damsel and will be stopping there to just restock my kingdom and take a break. I am so happy that for the first time I have finally learned to not care AT ALL about the LB prizes. It has been a relaxing event so far. I have had my MIL her from Britain for the last 2 weeks so I haven?t gotten much book club reading done. These next few days will be a nice catch up time for that.

Are there trading options that includes wisps and living wood in the LB?
Are these materials required too?
I'm doing the LB from the first day and have not seen them yet. Maybe we should make a list of what we might be asked as this LB's options to deliver are much more than the last.
I've seen.. other than items we can craft in the Forge, Work Shop and Potion Shop
shields and summer petals.

Yes.. I do find the game very unstable too! It goes back and forth depending what speed you're working at and stalls, crashes, especially if you use quick-collect.
If you're working fast with any booster on.. it will definitely reset so many times you don't remember what you're doing anymore and as in my case.. many prizes were NOT delivered. It's to see this event what happens when players who are participating throw in their 'bombs'. Will everything run smoothly?

I have a doubt as see difficulty in simple chopping/collecting/placing to keep up.
Placing new group of Rocks may roll back the game to when I was half way chopping last group.. and that's alot time wise.

LB events definitely requires the possibility of speed work, as that's exactly what it is.. a race! The last LB complaints were based on.. devices that showed certain LB positions.. then after had completely different positions. This obviously caused misunderstandings as results differed completely after final time out. I can imagine the state of mind of racers who spent gems reaching where they wished.

I hope this weeks final run proves me wrong but seeing how my device is running at the moment, without really racing.. I have many doubts on the server's capacity.

An excellent mind-set for the situation we find ourselves in. I've not added a single point since I finished my WW energy and have instead have been focusing on restocking my inventory and upgrading the buildings I have in my inventory. It's been great to have down time to focus on my realm and reminds me of the good ol' days, lol.

Not much movement in the top 5 ( I am 5) at all. Collecting items to throw in at the last minute? Should be interesting. I have my damsel, then made a few points by accident, battling monsters to progress the mermaid. Troll is parked now.
This is a relief, to be able to return to regular game play for a while, restock, redecorate. Yay!

Did I see someone saying they didn?t get the damsel even bough they were at 3000 and what was the fix? I?m at 3000 and haven?t got her in my inventory and no splash screen came up either. It was weird my total was at 2999, then after force closing (as there are a few of us working together to get the 1st place ideally or get to 3000 and stop, anyway after force closing the total jumped to 3000. But zilch with regards to my prize. :(

Have added a post to bugs forum and sent a support ticket.

I just earned a mystery chest which put a 25 energy crate in my inventory. I opened my inventory and placed it on my board. Then a couple seconds later the game showed “loading” and when it stopped the new energy crate was gone! I looked in my inventory and it was not there. I closed and reopened the game and not there!

I still think that the competitors are fictions... This is the second event in which I have visited all, tried to make friends but not a single one visit or request was returned. Which is weird, there are kingdoms, and yes, its a competition but just to be friendly a visit nack would not hurt. Has anybody else had a similar experience? And, btw, the drop rates for the petals are appalling �� but I guess something per event needs to be appalling for us.

I was just checking in to see if it was my game specifically that was acting up or if everyone was having an issue. I know that there have always been resets and rollbacks but since Thursday my game has been terrible! I'm done with the LB so right now I'm just doing very basic kingdom things, collecting crafts, materials and the like but any move I make causes the game to stutter and get very choppy. Forget scrolling across my realm to another location, that makes the entire page freeze or blank out. I've tried every trick I could think of but the results aren't changing. How are we meant to get anything done with this nonsense going on?

I have managed to collect from the Darling Damsel several times and have gotten: 360 coins per collection with one or two of her drops from the splash screen. She's a bit stingier than Aetas which makes me think maybe she's a cousin from the less wealthy side of the family. Or more likely DD needs to save up for an eye surgery as she seems to have a problem with her eyelids getting stuck when she blinks, lol.

I've spoken with nearly half of my group so they're real players. Perhaps the folks in your grouping just don't check their walls that often and they haven't seen your messages?

points for requested deliveries for those not getting enough points. You can only turn them in when requested, of course. The list of times and points doesn't seem right at the moment. I lost my notes, so please correct me if I've erred and I will revise.

5 points: Potion Shop, Jousting Bouquet, 1 hour - 1 summer petal, 10 white petals, 5 water
10 points: Workshop, Jousting Supplies, 15 minutes - 4 royal shields, 4 fur, 1 super glue
10 points: Magic Forge, Jousting Armor, 15 minutes - 2 royal shields, 4 sap, 3 jewels
20 points: Magic Forge, Knight's Crest, 4 hours - 6 royal shields, 6 living wood, 1 enchanters essence
30 points: Magic Forge, Jousting Confetti , 2 hours - 5 summer petals, 1 enchanters essence, 4 hides

also:
5 points: 5 summer petals
10 points: 10 royal shields

Also, I posted goal points for mid-level players in an earlier post:

@Lavenderdale To add to your list, my LB also asked for: Living Wood, Glimmerdust, and Earth Wisps. It asked for various amounts of each and they were worth 30 points.
