Wow I'm really upset. I like catering events because the prizes are awesome and I thought after the St. paddys goal there is another goal but we get 2 catering events in a month. They should name this game catering event story because 70 percent of the events are catering events. Also I think it's very stupid how you first had a Easter Catering then to St. Patricks and now mardi gras. They should have had the mardi gras event when the Easter event was and now the Easter event. Stop giving us lots of catering events it's not that hard. Who agrees with me.

I love cruises and events, but my counters are still full from the Easter and St Paddy's events. I was hoping for a break to empty my counters a bit and earn money from the food I have already cooked.

I agree! Especially when they last so long, past the actual holiday it represents. Most of the items require ingredients that take forever to replenish. Not fun! I normally get gun hoy about it until after the third prize, get bored and stop contributing.

03-25-16, 02:29 AM
I agree ... I'd like a break from constant goals/catering events to just sell items to make money to pay for learning permanent recipes or unlocking items in the market. Mardi Gras was six weeks ago. Honestly, I'd rather keep the beignet as permanent recipe instead of prize being a recipe that is so holiday specific. I liked the first cruise event the best, where the prize (forget her name - Liana?) drops either coins,,gems or helping hands.

chrissydid
03-25-16, 04:35 AM
It is as if they accidentally released the Easter cruise first, but then didn't want to throw out the (crazy late) mardi gras cruise.

I wonder what the daily prizes are...

^^ yup, I'm in. I love the trumpet guy. But I agree, all the events, it's a bit much. And I think her name was Luana, or Lula, she is the best. But I definitely like all the recipes that give out gems too... Let's pace ourselves, Storm 8. Instead of so many cruises maybe work on developing some buildings in the restaurants surroundings. Maybe some mini games in them.

03-25-16, 07:01 AM
I agree, there are too much catering events and they are waaay too time consuming... I really don't like timed events, I already have a REAL LIFE FULL OF TIMED EVENTS, a game is for relaxing... idk... it just feels like working right now.. PLUS I'm stuck in level 55 because I can't work on leveling because I have to focus on events...
In the St. Paddy's I hada a 3 day migraine crisis (wich is very very comon in my world), and that left me off the game for too long, I got in big trouble by the end of the event almost could'n finish it :(
This game has became too time consuming, but on the other side I'm afraid they will abandon the game and make no more new stuff if we complain too much.

Omg another cruise already!! Idk even know what to say about this game anymore. This game is so predictable it reminds me of "Groundhog Day" lol. I'm sure these cruises are exciting for newer players but I really wish they would expand this game somehow with something new, but whatever they obviously don't listen to us.

Anyway good luck with the cruise everyone!!

03-25-16, 09:33 AM
Cruises stress me out! I really prefer regular events that expand the story line. I'm sick of making the same dishes and going through the same process for decor I don't particularly care for and a recipe I don't need. As it is there are lots of gem recipes I never make because my stove is always baking other gem recipes.

New appliances are neat - I'd love to be able to get some of the limited edition ones - but even with those I can't use a lot of the recipes because I don't have counter space.

Can we do a cruise where you get additional counters as prizes??

All the complaints about another cruise event...if you dont want to do it, just dont! Its ok to skip one now and then, i usually skip all of the ones that arent cruises. S8 please dont stop the cruises, im happy to get as many gem dishes as you have to put out!

We could skip them BUT that would make me feel like I'm losing a great oportunity (gem recipe), so I'll just go along :K

I agree! I feel like it's time for some new type of event. Feels like we just had Easter cruise event and now there is another one... It's true we can skip events but I feel like it's a little unfair, because I wanna have new decor and recipes, but it does feel like a chore to complete events. Cruise have exactly the same layout, quests require you to master recipes, the only thing they changed in this regard is the amount of times we have to cook the recipe in order to master them :<

Mardi Gras was Feb. 9. It is before Lent begins. It is called "Fat Tuesday" because you use up all the baking before Lent begins.

KadeeDid
03-25-16, 07:05 PM
Yep feb 28th

In 2017, it will be Feb. 28. This year, it was Feb. 9. It is the day before Ash Wednesday. King Cakes are traditional but it is a month and a half too late! They seem to unveil events later and later but this takes the cake! King Cake of course! King Cake is traditional so at least they got that right.

I decided to start the cruise but not to stress over it. I am considering whatever prizes I win to be the main goal and I dont care if I finish or not. I agree with whoever said it just doesn't feel right to skip events, and I really love the parrot, though I doubt I will get that far.

Good luck to everyone who is taking this event more seriously than I am.

MysticOrchid
03-25-16, 08:53 PM
Okay, yes we want special events and cruises, but at least space them out so we can recover. Coming from a daily player with everything upgraded and all I feel like us only high players can barely finish these. TL has been around for years now so we can start getting more information on future events or what not? Not to mention the prizes have been getting very irritating of how long a certain person shows up or how much a certain item cost to get to make on the celebration stove gem wise.

Did this cruise get pushed back due to a bug/copyright?

I decided a while back not to care about whether I finish. I have not been able to complete a cruise even though I play daily and have been doing it since the beginning. I have not been able to get any of the special people either although did get a few of the recipes. Just too much and I have family commitments and involved in volunteer initiatives. I do what I can.

I do not know why holiday and festival events are out of synch with the real world. Mardi Gras should have been in early February. Easter should have been after St. Patrick's day. I think someone switched Easter and Mardi Gras.

Edit: I just read through some of the previous cruises and it makes more sense now! Sorry for the newbie post! I was under the impression the recipe and visited weren't permanent! Thank goodness they always seem to be!
I completed the event, so I will try to keep track of when she visits and add the info on the thread for everyone. Thanks! :)

Hi, newbie here.
Do we get reimbursed for the food delivered to the cruise, or just received gifts? On the previous cruises I participated (Valentine, Easter), there were monetary gifts (35.000) on the 5th day (if I remember correctly) - I think it's enough to cover cost of food delivered from day 1-5. I tried to pay attention to my money count after I delivered food, and I don't think that there were money added after delivery.

You don't get reimbursed for food delivered, you get decorations. When you get coins instead of a decoration, that means your level was too "low" to qualify for that piece of decoration. Yes weird logic, I know.

tuffyjkitten
03-28-16, 11:26 PM
If the second cook on a cruise recipe results in significant "leftovers" then I use one of the spices on it that boosts the coins. That way I can still get some money during the event. I have rarely gotten repeat orders where I can use food on the counter and stacking dishes has never worked for me. I always cook the wrong stuff so I stopped bothering.

Please note that blocking your door is not part of the design of the game, and you may experience issues, like a quick sell.

Also I have seen posts where players have pulled up their chairs and have also experienced issues with their game .

It's doable! Use quick serves to speed up orders if you can. I wasted gems last time paying to finish the day off instead of paying to refresh ingredients I needed. Had an order for 10 potatoes and it would have cost way less to speed the market to restock them. Good luck! I'm a day behind so I hope to get the parrot but doubt I will make it to the recipe.

jewelie121
04-02-16, 05:20 PM
Thanks! I'm trying, but a little frustrated right now. 3 times today I've gotten the BLT recipe and I don't have the deli station yet, so I have no choice but to refresh and waste 30 minutes each time. I'll be happy when the amount of gems I need is less than the amount of gems I have. LOL!

Well, I did finish last night, but had to spend almost all of my gems to do so. I'm still happy, though, because I now have the king cake recipe and was able to unlock the celebration stove. Anyone know how many gems cooking the king cake will produce? Is it a set amount or potentially different each time? Just curious.

ellyse99
04-03-16, 11:25 PM
All the gem recipes including this one are random. I think the highest I've ever gotten from a gem recipe is like, 15 gems? But the "default" is 1 gem each.

ellyse99
04-03-16, 11:26 PM
Don't get disheartened though. The gem recipes are yours for keeps, so you can keep making them every day and earn gems. I can usually cook gem recipes almost non-stop on my celebration stoves, I have 2 of them.

Dsscats2, you're very lucky! She has only dropped 1 at a time for me.
Also in terms of gems, so far I've only gotten 1 gem each time but it ends up adding up to 1 extra gem daily for me which isn't much but will add up when I get other characters / gem recipes.
