Dialogue:
Ruler: Hey Ivy, what're all these people doing here?
Ivy: Haven't you heard? The Royal Games are here!
Ruler: Royal Games?
Ivy: Yes! Kingdoms from all over compete to climb the ranks and win awesome prizes. I'm going to try and join this year. The grand prize is the CUTEST Jousting Steed!
Ruler: Hmm, I see. Maybe I'll give it a try. Where should I start?
Ivy: There's all kinds of things you can do to gain points. You can tend to your daily activities around the Kingdom, or you can fill special deliveries just for the Royal Games to gain even more points!
Baron: *Ahem*
Ruler: Uh-oh...
Baron: I hear you're considering competing in the Royal Games.

The Royal Games Tent, is it only for this event or can you use it for future leaderboard events as well?

I'd also like to know are we actually in competition with other players or is it just to encourage you to get Rank 1. I suspect a lot of people if we are in competition with each other are going to lose out because those that gem through will always get the top prize.

I noticed there are three new items to cook in the kitchen including pork loins and honey cakes and one other, I started those two, hopefully it was not for nothing, it was before seeing the update and I figured I needed them. I haven't seen an update, so have to go download. I was wondering why it was so quiet but thanks for posting this!

Not only that ... in order to get the major prize you have to be #1 and there's only 1 #1 as we all know so only one person will get that prize!?!?!?! Just doesn't seem fair. The top 10 or 20 should be able to get that grand prize. And as others have said it's gonna be all one-sided because of the gemmers but I guess S8 is in dire straits to do this kind of update.

I was wondering this myself, but guessing it will follow leaderboards from other games and only be good for this one event. Is that right?

I think it is, if it's anything like the events on FFS. I'm just going to focus on getting the Royal Games Castle.

So chopping trees gives points??? My points are for cooking & crafting a jousting sword! Which takes hours, by the way. I don't have those jobs.

And also btw, the Royal Games Tent is 150 gems 😳

The royal games tree that drops as first prize has 20 chops.

Incase it's like previous trees (that you'll want to store later), don't forget to store it right after you place it - before you just leave it out as deco. (Unless you just chop it ofcourse)

meme1098

And my points aren't recording in the window. I should have at least 5 showing since I sped up a cook.

On my ranking board, there are only 20 players or so. Which means that the #1 of each grouping of players gets the prize. The top one on my board already has 72 points, so I don't think I'm going to get the horse. But everyone is guaranteed at least 1 trade ticket and 10,000 coins (that's the prize for last place).

You have to click on 'gather' I think.

Edit: just sped up a craft, you still need to click on 'deliver' after collecting.

I see that ranking board in my game too but none of my points are being recorded at all. The My Points slot still shows zero when I sped up the pork loin for 5 points. Force closed & my point total is still zero. SMH!

You're only competing against the people on your list, so if your friend is not on your list your won't see them.

And thanks TerraRanomi, I've never done one of these before. :D

We're only competing with the other 19 people on that list. And the leader on mine already has over 1200 points :D:D
So yeah, I'm out. Lol!

I'd also like to know, how many points does the tent drop and is it good for this event only? Also, can it be stored between events?
So many questions! I'm not interested in spending that 150 gems for something that is only good for 6 days. I already made that mistake on the useless egg forge.

If you scroll all the way down in the Settings, there's a Facebook connect right there. Can you disconnect from it?

The gather changed to Deliver on mine when I sped up & collected the 1 I had cooking. Force close might help??? Hopefully.

The top goal prize is a Royal Games Castle for 3000 points. Do you think it's just a coin building, or maybe it's a barracks type building?

In my opinion I don't think they divided us very fairly, tons of people in my group have 10+ alicorns which means way more energy than I could ever have. I wish they made it so you could win without spending gems :(

MiniLaura
02-09-17, 01:20 PM
The idea that I have to compete against others to win is a deal breaker for me. I'm not wasting resources on this. I'll play my normal game and if I earn points, great.

no need to buy a tree.. you get 2 when you reach to 50 points. the tent is handy BUT it is EXtra EXpensive!

Jeez I play this game because it's one of the few games out there that is not player versus player, allowing me to earn prizes according to time invested regardless of my neighbors accomplishments, and now this...

Very sad :(

The no. 1 rank on my list has dozens of white alicorns and has already bought the tent. Oh well, bye bye horsie.

Yeah it really bugs me that they're making us compete. I would rather us work toward a set number. For example to be in rank 1 earn 5,000 points, rank 2 earn 3,000-4,999 points etc.

I also can't "deliver". My game is updated and I have force closed but no delivery option only gather. Is this a bug? They show in inventory.

Thats exactly what I'm doing.. playing normally.
I noticed in my group of names, one is my nbr and long time friend.. seeing this I have no intention to rush ahead. Not speeding, nor gemming.. just playing on time.

Same here! I have at least one neighbor in my group. Im playing normally with the exception of the monsters...I won't park one during this so I can possibly earn a few extra points by fighting them. I may plant a few crabapple trees too, but that's about it.
Still debating about the tent......🤔🤔

My first prize chest @100 points had 1 Royal Beam inside.
I don't know if they're set prizes or random so I thought I'd post Incase.

Must be random. My first goal prize was 2 royal trees, 2nd goal prize was a 10-energy chest, and third prize was 2 royal banners. Mehhhh...

For anyone who has killed a beast, does it give 1 point per hit or 1 point for the kill?
If it's 1 per kill I think I'll just leave my beastie parked for the duration.

On the first tab of the Royal Games page (the tab labeled 'Points') are three cards with a 'Gather' button on them. Those are the only three you can submit at a time. You can make something else and store it until it comes up on the cards, but you can only get credit for what's currently on the cards. :(

Also, by my calculations, level 50 players have to earn 428.6 (!!!) points per day to get the Royal Games Castle from the Goals list! :( :( :(

Energy chest! Very nice! :)

Fourth goal prize was a 25-energy crate. We will definitely need lots of those. This is a huge energy drain. I'm averaging 5 boars with each rock outcropping I've chopped. At least the boars give points, so there's that.

Figured out my problem was that it wanted beef stew (pic looks similar to pork loin) but when you click gather in the goal, it takes you to the kitchen on the first item which was pork loin. Needed to scroll to third item on list which was beef stew. Don't know if this is the case for you?

I don't get this at all. What is the point? To get a castle that drops more points. And around and around we go!!! I have 442 trade tickets. I don't need to do this for trade tickets. Maybe it will grow on me. I'm thinking it will be easier to spend gems on castle. I'll have to give this a little time, but right now it looks like "busy" work.

I know, I crafted 4 pork loins before I realised it wasn't the right thing but meanwhile I had crafted and delivered a jousting lance and lo behold, it asked for 1 pork loin which I delivered and then it asked for another, so nothing's going to waste here!

no.. being maxed doesn't matter neither in wood nor stone.. mine keeps increasing anyway while chopping. I would simply suggest to turn off device and let it rest for an hour. eventually when u turn on again and it's the same.. call for 'help' in bugs. it's an emergency.. lol!

I'm glad you said this. I was just coming back to mention that players might have to actually go to Facebook to log out of the game. Really, for those who want to remain logged in through Facebook, it should default to the game icon and make using a profile pic optional. I'm sure there are thousands of players and former players who are unaware that their Fa(r)cebook (nice one, Lorrainne! ;)) profile pics have suddenly been posted on Castle Story.

Instructions should be written in BOLD on First Page for those who wish to turn it off.
It might be 'invading privacy' for them.
At least they will know what to do, or for those who don't visit forum, we can direct them.

I'd also like to know are we actually in competition with other players or is it just to encourage you to get Rank 1. I suspect a lot of people if we are in competition with each other are going to lose out because those that gem through will always get the top prize.

I noticed that some players on my list are tied. That leads me to believe that multiple players should be able to tie for first place and obtain the top prize. Sure hope so!

Update: Hmmm...from what I am reading, it sounds like this was wishful thinking on my part! I would much rather do a community event--not crazy about a competition!

While I'm not crazy about the competitive side of this, I could learn to ignore it. My problem is that this ranking was the death of Dragon Story for me; once they added this it was goodbye regular goals. I can only imagine the hit CS storyline is going to take.

Don't think possible for all to make agreement.. my first place of the group is more than a 1000 points ahead of all. Seems intentional to win final prize today! That simply kicks everyone else out of the way. I saw that second place is not far behind the first.. so that means all the rest of the group can just stop where they are.
Tomorrow I study the case better.. to see what possibilities for others.. without gemming uncountably ahead, to this I don't agree. It's a mean fight and I don't feel comfortable where I am.

I don't like it either and for the same reason. I love the sense of community in CS and this event is contrary to the very structure of this game. I am not going to compete with the community. I will either stay well behind the leaders or I will just skip this entirely. It seems unfair to have us visit community kingdoms one week then be pitted against them the next week.

I think S8 made a big mistake in including leaderboard events in this particular game and I hope they don't bring this back again.

I crafted two pork loins. Card showed 2/5. I went ahead and pushed gather and got the 10 points but the card switched to the beef stew. guess you need to be careful that you've done all you can on a card before you deliver.

Whoops, look like I misread the numbers. Must have been 2/1. Only one was delivered. I crafted two lances and just now delivered one of the two. The card switched to the pork loin and the 1/1 was marked deliver, so I did. That card is again asking for a porkloin but kitchen is still busy with beef stew.

I too am sorry to see this event here. Both Dragon Story and Fantasy Forest have gone to OVERLAPPING leaderboards, community events, and/or storybook (chapter) events. The does go against the feeling of camaraderie and helpfulness that has been so much a part of this game. The kingdoms on your list are real, you can go visit them by pressing on the kingdom name.

Wait, the Games Castle is a decoration? There are no useful prizes in any of the goals, except Royal Beam (possible drop from chests)?

The Royal Games Castle is 2300 points for mid-level players. Gates are 1500, walls 900 & banners 200 points.

Edit: size of the tent is 2x2.

There are 2 tiers to the leaderboard: 1. earn enough points to get the Royal Games Castle (you compete against yourself); and 2. Rank 1 or 2 to get the Jousting Steed (compete against your group). Whether you want to continue playing is your decision :)

Can you give us some more info on the Castle though - does it have a timer? drops? decoration?

Don't forget to use the elf boosts to cut the crafting time in half.

thanks katt. i've been wondering how much these boosts speed things up. it doesn't say in the eleven outpost thread. do they cut the time of things already in progress or only on new crafts?

Thx for the reply! It's on a timer, but I didn't check it when I put it out. Checked it just now and it's 21 hrs before it drops (whatever?). The castle itself is ok. It takes 9 squares of space, it's got a moat in the back with a drawbridge. HTH!

When a boost is active it affects all crafts. Doesn't matter if you started the craft before or after activating a boost. Also, you can see the timer going twice as fast so it doesn't immediately show.

Don't think possible for all to make agreement.. my first place of the group is more than a 1000 points ahead of all. Seems intentional to win final prize today! That simply kicks everyone else out of the way. I saw that second place is not far behind the first.. so that means all the rest of the group can just stop where they are.
Tomorrow I study the case better.. to see what possibilities for others.. without gemming uncountably ahead, to this I don't agree. It's a mean fight and I don't feel comfortable where I am.

My initial observation was wishful thinking! Not liking the competition part of it at all!

I'm not a fan so far. This kind of competition in a game that I have always viewed as being community focused, bothers me. I play this game to relax, visit with neighbors, work together to benefit all. Is this type of event so successful in the other S8 games? I know I don't have to participate. I do find it a shame that the things we've asked for over and over again are ignored though people have indicated that they would spend more real money on the game if we had them? Expansions, monster hunts, expansions, story line, expansions. Giving us a chance at decorations that take up space without giving us options to expand is ridiculous. Competing with other players, especially some who may have a total advantage from the beginning, is ridiculous. Purposely creating haves and have-nots within our community sounds too much like real life situations. Not enjoyable.
Ok, rant over. I hope the new jousting steed at least gives energy like Rouncy and Destrier do. The leaders will have earned it.

You open the chest and if you get an item, it goes in your inventory.

I just received some great advice from one of my neighbors. Play like it's a community event trying for the castle and see where that lands me. This isn't a long event. I'm not gemming and I'm not stressing to be first. Just going to play. For fun.

I got the Royal Games Castle but it didn't require using gems. I did use 150 gems for the RG Tent, but that's it. I have a lot of energy, so I chopped about 200 rock outcroppings which earned me 10 points per rock. I had to drag out my energy crates that I've been hoarding plus wore out all of my alicorns. I also received 4 royal trees as prizes which give a lot of points if you chop them.

The bad news is that the castle dropped 1000 coins for the first collection. :confused:

What does this event add to Castle Story?

Does it advance the story line? No
Does it build up the community? No, the opposite
Does it offer great prizes? No - the lucky few get the prize horse (and given the amount of carrots needed for beef stew, of which I have TWO clogging up my task list, that pony had better be farting carrots every 20 minutes). The rest get... Energy, which we've wasted, and trade tickets which we could have earned by spending the same effort on milk and eggs.
Does it have a grand building at the end of it? No, the rather unexciting looking castle available to those who make the effort appears to be... Deco(???) so no drops at all!

And the race to the finish to be in the high rankings has, of course, a site time which just happens to be midnight GMT. So some of us will be asleep for the last few crucial hours anyway.

Seems to me like S8 have decided who the Important players are - North Americans who spend lots of money - and sod the rest of us.

This has rather changed how I feel about the game. My commitment level has dropped considerably - and with it my willingness to spend a few pounds when I can. :(

I have been thinking pretty much the same thing. I plan to stop at 3000 (if I can even get that far). I am rooting for my group, and will ask them to tie for first place. If they don't want to, that's their choice, but won't it be the same prize if there is a tie, as it would be if there is only one winner?

I like stopping at the 3000 points thing, but you always have that competitive sort that doesn't; even if all agreed, one might accidentally earn a point by clicking on a tree or rock when trying to click something else on the map and earn another point.

First chest was a royal beam, second chest also.
Third chest gave me a +25 energy crate (mid-level).

It will be the one with highest score where people are on different scores.

My previous comment about who reaches 3000 first being the winner - this was only in relation to discussion around wanting to be fair and working with the others in their league so everyone just gets 3000 points. I think, in this specific case only, it will be whoever gets that score first that gets ranked as number 1.

Hope this helps.

I am another who is not impressed with this new style event. In past events as long as you were at a high enough level, the top prize was achievable for all players if you were prepared to put in the time, effort or money. With this event 90% of players WILL miss out on the top prize irrespective of the time, effort or money put into the game.

Not a good way to incentivise me, nor many other players.

I don't want 2 identical games, but if S8 gives the leaderboards from DS also here....
Why don't we have a wheel or something else to have a chance to get more points?
Why are the tasks that give points things most of us shouldn't do on a dayly base?
I guess most of the players are maxed out on wood and stone for a long time because I see this in nearly all the other events...
In DS it's easy to get points (not to the final, but at least halfway) only doing the things you always need to do. In CS terms I think about tasks that most players give something useful to choose from (maybe 1 point per hour for the longer tasks);
Collect from any building
Do any adventure
Tend any of your animals
Water any of your plants
Cook a recept
Do a trading
Harvest crop
...

I don't care if we need more points to the final individual prize next time, if we can get more points this way. It's just that I wish at least I can get some points from doing what I need to do to build my kingdom!

I got ur idea. It will be better IF we got point from HOW LONG we craft something or cook something. Or deliver. Or adventure. So we can gather points while we doing things in our kingdom. While most of all continue our main story.

This is happen in DS an FFS. Its so rubbish when you cook or craft something and it dissappear only for point. BUT if we cook something for our adventure or our future use. Well. It will be much better.

AND just some reminder. Maybe this is not the last time S8 make leaderboard event. (But we can hope that this is the only leaderboard event regarding most people hate it), in the next Leaderboard you will be take group with people who hit the same milestone point.

Example: When this is over, you only hit second milestone. You will be onthe group who all people hit second milestone.

(but this can change. If CS leaderboard system is different with FFS or DS)

I figured out my mistake, made the beef stew, and everything went fine. Now the game is asking for 1 pork loin. I have one in my inventory, but the game won't accept it. It still says gather, and takes me to the kitchen when I tap "gather". Does this mean we can't make anything ahead of time? Is there a way to get the game to accept the pork loin that sits in my storage?

The idea that I have to compete against others to win is a deal breaker for me. I'm not wasting resources on this. I'll play my normal game and if I earn points, great.


Jeez I play this game because it's one of the few games out there that is not player versus player, allowing me to earn prizes according to time invested regardless of my neighbors accomplishments, and now this...

Very sad :(

The no. 1 rank on my list has dozens of white alicorns and has already bought the tent. Oh well, bye bye horsie.


Yeah it really bugs me that they're making us compete. I would rather us work toward a set number. For example to be in rank 1 earn 5,000 points, rank 2 earn 3,000-4,999 points etc.

I came to The forum to write the same
I really enjoyed that there was no competition at all

I have had no issues with it accepting the things I have made ahead. When it wants something I already have in inventory, there is a big green check over the item and I just have to hit deliver. Maybe double check which dish is in inventory? Unfortunately, all three look very similar.

I, too, would like to know why doing things around my kingdom (& it notes that in the pop up) don't count?? Tending animals, harvesting crops, adventuring? My usual things around the kingdom do not include chopping trees & rocks!!!

And why am I cooking the same 2 meals & crafting the same 2 jousting items but never using them in the Jousting arena???? It's called the Royal Games but haven't done anything whatsoever related to a 'game' except maybe whacking a few beasts! Am I ever gonna get any different tasks??? Again, this will be very monotonous by the end of day 2.

Also, why do I need trade tickets if we never get expansions????

Remember there are 3 levels to this based on your game level. Low, mid and high and all have diff milestone point counts. 3000 is only the high level castle milestone....

Is there any explanation why 1st position on team went to almost 4,500? Is it a way of saying "back off"? It's said 3,000 were enough to gain castle.
Raising the top figure in first position.. only makes it more difficult for the other 19 members to gain anything. Or am I wrong?

i quess it could be fun if i dont remember all the good times i had with this game, but im fading , and really desire more from the game i loved and invested into for years. just my two gold

THIS!
Cyn, you've hit the nail on the head! Agreed! (With one small exception: I would be thrilled if the elf trades, as they are now, vanished, but why did the monster hunts have to vanish? AFTER we bought the beastbane?)
And it makes me very sad, because I fear our castle "story" is gone for good.

I'm afraid our Castle Story effectively ended last August when we had the last storyline update.

I honestly hope this is not the direction of the game now, similar to DS as someone mentioned, with this type of update every few weeks.

I HATE the idea of competing with other people. This brings extra pressure to my game. I play to relax, not to get stressed over trying to beat another player to the prize! I will play to get the royal castle and will stop there. What a stressful update!

Ditto. But as long as this 'new' format makes lots of money, I fear we will continue to get more of the same.
It's getting increasingly harder to stay optimistic about the future of the game.

For what it's worth, I am participating, but not competing. And definitely NOT spending any money.
And I guess there is a bright spot.... at least the trade certificates will be useful for lower level players who haven't completely expanded yet.

Meh. I haven't decided if I want to play this one or not. I noticed I had to give up a gold nugget to get one of the items. I don't feel the need for another horse.

This type of competitive event is created to put the players under pressure. Only the players who are willing to spend the most money on gem items and/or have the most energy resources stand a chance to survive the onslaught and win the end prize.

Unlike any other event, the collection timers are completely irregular. There are many different items to collect with different crafting times making it difficult to get into a rythm. The boosts make the timers even more unpredictable. I feel very uneasy after a day of trying to play this. I don't want to have to check the game every 15 minutes because "something" is ready for collection. This is just too crazy.

So chopping trees gives points??? My points are for cooking & crafting a jousting sword! Which takes hours, by the way. I don't have those jobs.

And also btw, the Royal Games Tent is 150 gems ��

Mine were for a helmet that wanted a gold nugget.

I see that ranking board in my game too but none of my points are being recorded at all. The My Points slot still shows zero when I sped up the pork loin for 5 points. Force closed & my point total is still zero. SMH!

It might be looking for beef stew, not the pork loin... that happened to me too until I realized that I needed to make the beef stew and not the pork loins for the first gather...

I have had no issues with it accepting the things I have made ahead. When it wants something I already have in inventory, there is a big green check over the item and I just have to hit deliver. Maybe double check which dish is in inventory? Unfortunately, all three look very similar.

Well....whatever my glitch was, it is working now. I just delivered a pre-made helmet. Thanks for your input.

I applaud S8 for trying something different, but I HATE this update and the direction CS is apparently going.

I don't mind putting a lot of time and effort into playing, but I want co-operation, not competition. The "battle" is me against the computer, or against myself. If I wanted to fight other players for a prize I would go to a Poker or Wargames site.

I will have a go, because apart from collecting from the swans I have nothing better to do with my energy, but I will be glad when the event is over and hope it will not be repeated.

You won't win unless you spend gems - that's the problem. The person who gets the horse and the expansion permits is the one who spends the most gems.

I thought this was a great event until I realised you coukd put all the effort in and end up with only one trade ticket.

That's a big pile of rubbish.

I'm thinking the exact thing right now.. Especially hearing the castle prize is only coins :confused: and we have no idea if the horse for 1st and second place will be like Destrier and drop energy or if will just be the reg horse drops.. The prizes don't really seem worth it at this point.

Geez louise, how many gems are they spending to have so many points? They have to be purchasing 30+ "points trees" (forgot the name) to have such a huge lead. Wow.

So there really is no hope for the rest of us, is there? I really wanted that horse, too. :(

I'm thinking I'm done with this game. Played from the beginning obsessively at times. It was fun for a long time. I played because it was different from the other S8 games. There was more to it than just mindless tapping and collecting. No more. Now all the games are the same just with different graphics. I was hanging on with the endless timed events that followed the exact same pattern, but this leaderboard is as far from the original Castle Story as anything could be (and this is from someone who is way ahead on the leaderboard, still not fun). People make suggestions for ways to make it fun again, but in the end, there must be a lot more people spending a ton of money on the boring, tedious events because things just get worse and worse. I'm sad.

Or they have 100 or so alicorns. I chalked up lots of points hacking rocks as I have a number of alicorns and if you use the knight's nobility boost for 25 gems, you get twice as many points in a 2 h period.

It's not necessary to spend gems.. what you need is tons of energy!
I'm at 1000 points and I have stopped for now. I did use tons of energy using alis, daily alis, all other energy means.. and I have NOT spent a single gem, NOT bought the tent NOR tree. All you have to do is CHOP!
Go to the last page of the leader board.. there you can see other ways you can gain Royal points: chopping trees, dead trees, old logs, Icy Willows, chopping all kinds of rocks, outcropping, rich or whatever. Usually every third chop gives you a point. Just keep on and on and on. Yes.. very monotonous ..but FREE.

If I wanted competition, there are a lot of better games out there to play! There are so many other options S8 could have gone with instead. If S8 was trying to get me to buy gems, they just gave me the reason NOT to spend real money on this game! I'm looking for another game to play. Sad and very disappointed!!

I would like to know why it's always a guessing game with prizes.. Be it the barons tent or event prizes. Why can't S8 just be completely clear as to what we're playing for? Like.. Tell us will the castle only drop coins? Is this a special horse? I can't be the only one getting tired of the guessing games. If it wasn't for other players in these forums taking the chance on buying things or being way ahead to let us know what's what. We'd all be in the dark. It's simple! Just have a detailed inventory card on all prizes that we click on the picture and flips over and let's us all know EXACTLY what it's about! I think it's simple anyhow.
Almost all questions are always about what does this or that do? It just doesn't need to always be such a big mystery.

I tap the Rank button & the 2nd place player is about 200 points behind me. I just have below 600 points. It shows everyone's points & I have a few at the bottom with 0 who probably aren't even playing anymore.

Yes! There were a few events where the splash screen let us know what to expect from the prizes (showing drops). Why can't they always do that? Hasn't S8 learned that CS players want open and honest communication rather than being left in the dark?

02-10-17, 10:57 AM
I have never had a request for cakes either. Pork loins are just 5 points. And carrots and cabbages take so long to grow. My supply is dwindling. That probably encourages spending gems on the special trees and the special boosts that have high yield of points. I have not spent gems on this event.
Well I guess I'm in a low point group too. The top 4 or 5 are really close. I hope that means players aren't spending tons of gems on this competition just to stay on top of a stupid leaderboard. Maybe if S8 sees that this isn't a money maker, we won't have any more of these events. Our best chance is to close our wallets. Money talks.

Oh wow. I'd love to get the steed, but there's no way I'm going to end up that far up the leader board. I've just used up all the energy I could get together from wizard schools, beasts and some energy crates and have chopped my way up to 500 points but others are doing much better - and I can see someone in this thread saying they were on 1,000. Not for me! I'm not in this for the competition with other players. I'll keep going more casually for a bit to see if I can replenish my supply of energy crates and concentrate on those expansion permits and improving the look of my board instead.

Good luck to everyone who is sticking with it.

Personally, I don't think they'll get rid of them even if they KNOW that the majority of people hate them. As long as the $$$$ keep rolling in, we're stuck with leaderboards. And the top 2 in my group have over 6 thousand and 3 thousand points respectively. I'm In 6th place with 670-ish. (And I'm just playing casually, no gems...not even the tent).

Ps. Add me to the list of players who has never been asked for honey cakes either. My knights have an insatiable appetite for beef stew. But they're about to starve cause carrots and cabbages take a while to grow. I predict I won't be in 6th place much longer. Lol. Good thing I really don't care, the only reason I am participating at all is because there haven't been any new storyline updates in ages and there's nothing else to do.

I am another who is not impressed with this new style event. In past events as long as you were at a high enough level, the top prize was achievable for all players if you were prepared to put in the time, effort or money. With this event 90% of players WILL miss out on the top prize irrespective of the time, effort or money put into the game.

Actually it's even higher: 95% of players (19/20) will be out of first place within their group.

I've never been happy with this ranking system as I've said before. However it may be some consolation to people who feel they're unfairly grouped to know that after this first event the grouping should level out to be more fair. That's the way it worked in DS before I gave up at least. The highest ranking from each group this time will next time be paired together and the least ranked this time will be together next time. I'm not a fan of it, but some people might like to know.im just going for the castle personally.

I was kind of enjoying this to start but then spent some time analyzing the competition rules.

First: as a level 29, there is no way I can compete with a level 45. Most of the things that boost or give extra energy are not available to me yet.
Second: After mainly focusing on the event today, I am at 140 points. I won't be able to reach the 2300 points needed for the castle. I was able to log in most of the day with my energy hardly ever completely reloading.
Third: at this point, we have to assume the prizes aren't worth it. S8 is not telling us what the top prizes actually do. Even at my level, I don't need a coin drop building or a plain old horse.
Fourth: I haven't been playing long but I understand the community this game created and appreciate how the majority feel this is bad for CS.

This could have been a fun event with just the goals/points portion (with a few more levels ;), as a completionist, already knowing I can't the castle makes me sad)

Even less reason to play then! I was going on the basis that the top prize is the horse and that is awarded to the top two in the group, but you are correct, in future it may well be restricted to first place only and I really don't like those odds.

Rather than getting caught up in the end prize, I just want to say that the prizes we get along the way are good. I like the Royal games walls and gates and the RG trees are really cute with the ribbons hanging down. The artwork is very good and the items all grouped together is very Castle Story-ish. If players would concentrate on just getting the RG Castle and other prizes that come as you play, you might start enjoying this event. I have no interest in getting the steed but I'm glad I just competed with myself to get the other prizes.

I found that chopping rocks was the best use of energy. Besides getting a lot of points, I also got 19 gold nuggets which was helpful in crafting the helmets. The RG trees give a lot of points too. I did 19 chops to get the points, but didn't do the last chop so I could keep the tree as deco.

I finally got a request for the honey cakes. They were worth 60 points, but it was strange, the banner was red and said 4 hours. I didn't want to wait 4 hours to see what happened, so I sent them and got a request for a long sword for, I think it was 40, points, also red with 4 hours on it. Sent that too and got a plain old pork loin again.

Does anyone know what the red point banners mean? And the 4 hours? My theory is either the point amount is good for 4 hours, or the request expires in four hours.

Apologies if that's been asked and answered but I haven't seen it mentioned.

Don't get me wrong, I kinda like that this is something a little different.. Just figured it would be Valentinesy in some way ;)

They did that last year. It was Sabrina's and Thurstons wedding last year, same time as the Baron Queen wedding etc. Disappointed.

it really isnt a fair game anymore, to have to compete against someone who has five times as many alicorns and energy options than you do...

Agreed. If S8's goal is to make me buy an Alicorn, this is a mean way to do it. :mad:

I finally got a request for the honey cakes. They were worth 60 points, but it was strange, the shield was red and said 4 hours. I didn't want to wait 4 hours to see what happened, so I sent them and got a request for a long sword for, I think it was 40, points, also red with 4 hours on it. Sent that too and got a plain old pork loin again.

Does anyone know what the red shields mean? And the 4 hours? My theory is either the point amount is good for 4 hours, or the request expires in four hours.

Apologies if that's been asked and answered but I haven't seen it mentioned.

Looks to me like the request will expire in 4 hours. I think you get extra points of you deliver within those 4 hours. But I'm just guessing here. ;)

Yeah, S8 isn't very generous with info on these things. :( But based on our theories, it sounds like it might be a good idea to have at least one each of the longer crafting/cooking items on hand, for those wishing to cash in on the extra points.

Am I the only one who is totally annoyed by the "1 Point" pop up that covers the left sword attack while fighting monsters? I keep hitting it by mistake and being taken to the event info screen :mad:

Nope! I'm right there with you!

Smart, I'll do the same. (& thanks for the heads up!)

Can you get rid of a delivery?

That helmet thingy requires gold nuggets. I don't want to use my nuggets for this, so I would like to know how to reset that one delivery.

Well, if Thursday stated 7 days, why, then, it's only Friday, and it already stating 4 days left? Wow, the clock on this is crazy!

I was wondering about getting rid of a delivery request, too. I recently used all my nuggets on a quest and have zero right now. I've been collecting from my mines at every opportunity, and chopping rocks like crazy, but I still don't have any nuggets. I would love to be able to refresh that helm request for something I could actually make.

I found that chopping rocks was the best use of energy. Besides getting a lot of points, I also got 19 gold nuggets which was helpful in crafting the helmets. The RG trees give a lot of points too. I did 19 chops to get the points, but didn't do the last chop so I could keep the tree as deco.

Ah hah! You're the one taking all the gold nuggets! 😁😁😁

What is it with this game and gold nuggets? It's the most required and least given resource.

Realized that with 1100 points already I can get the last prize with only 160 gems by buying game trees and using the now 3x baron boost!

Guilty as charged. Did I mention I chopped at least 200 rocks? You certainly don't get a nugget with every rock, unfortunately.

With the number of rocks I have chopped in the past two weeks, and all the mine visits, I would have thought I'd get at least one nugget by now. I pretty much ground to a halt on the event prior to this one for lack of gold nuggets.

Just got a Royal Games tree as well.

If these are 'Games' when are we going to do some Jousting with the items crafted in the Workshop?????? Huh, S8???

What is the 3x baron boost?!?! I don't see anything like that.

Look under the "shop" tab in the event. There are 2 boosts that can be purchased for gems.

Actually it's even higher: 95% of players (19/20) will be out of first place within their group.

For this reason.. beloved GEMMERS will ALWAYS win this contest.
Normal players even if they have a good position.. CANNOT COMPETE with them for the first 2 POSITIONS.
It's a USELESS race.

NO.. it results to me that groups have NOT BEEN SORTED EQUALLY.

WHO WINS IS WHO USES MORE GEMS!

Why then not put the first prize in a VALUE PACK FOR SALE?
Instead of declaring it's a contest?
So S8 can collect their daily money?

IT'S AGAIN.. WHO OBTAINS.. IS WHO SPENDS MOST.

THIS IS NOT AN ABILITY CONTEST.. IT'S AN AUCTION!
WHO OFFERS MOST.. WINS!

Chop Outcropping Rocks.. when you've chopped a few hundreds.. you get nuggets back! LOL!

Sorry.. not my usual self this morning.. this so called 'EVENT' is just a fake!
There is nothing in it for normal daily leisure players.. maybe just a way to eliminate them!
ONLY WHO GEMS WILL OBTAIN THE FINAL PRIZE.. others just have to accept a couple of TRADE TICKETS! Which you can craft yourself for LESS!

Agree with you Moon,only one person in my group can win the 1st prize,he is so far ahead.
Of the remaining 19 it will be a close call & between 5 or 6 for 2nd prize,& in my opinion very unfair to those who miss out.

I hope this type of event is NOT repeated.

DITTO!

Judge this.. third day today:
1st position: 4,922 points and not stopping. level50, has Alis, but not more than I do.
2nd position: 3,500 points.. level 50, NO Alis!
I'm working hard all day, not wasting time, but NOT spending gems.. I have the advantage of energy from my Alis. My points are 2,000.. the rest of the group working even if slowly.

When I reach the Castle... I WILL STOP!!!!! I wont craft even one more dish! and keep my goods.
Don't care about about the 'horse auction'! it doesnt even drop energy! and don't like leaving group too far behind.

If they wish.. they tie with me.. if they prefer.. they can move ahead.
1st and 2nd place will be unreachable, as gems are used.
(It's still to see if 2nd place stops when reaches the Castle or does like 1st place... goes way over total necessary)

Honestly.. I don't call this an Event.. it's stress playing and NOT relaxing at all.. BUT each has their choice.

Advice to fellow players: save your gems and buy yourself an Ali, which will give you energy as long as you play and not horsehair, if you're tempted to spend.
It's more constructive!
