I got a pop-up of a new event this evening. Another leaderboard event for six days.

My level for completing individual milestones requires 19,000 points to get a White Lovebird (which has a pink head). First and second place for each leaderboard get a Pink Lovebird.

(I have a pic of the opening but am getting getting a message that the file type for the JPEG is wrong. No idea what's up, as I always upload the pics from my iPhone. ... Also, if anyone wants to move or merge this thread, please do so.)

I guess to be fair to S8...after two doable events...im not going to crib about the leader board event.
But honestly dosent look like i stand a chance in my group. Im at level 54...n am competing against people who have level in the 90ies. I dont have all the animals i can have at my level and dont have the time either!
All the best to those giving it a go:)

I agree! To reach 19,000 points, you would have to buy a lot of boosters. I am no longer willing to "sacrifice" Gems for an event, where 90% of the participants go out empty and have no chance of winning the main prize.

I too am bowing out of this event. I was hoping for some time that the team would add birds as pets but it is a disappointment that they are part of a leaderboard event where only two players will receive the one bird. I was not able to reach 19K points on the last leaderboard event and that one gave us more time. I also will not be sacrificing gems during this event where there is no possible way to win either bird. The top five players on my team were at the 900-1000 point mark after the first five hours and the top three are nearing 2K after 12 hours. On the plus side this event will give me a break after the time I spent on the last two events. Good luck everyone.

My plan is to boost and play hard for the white bird. I'll have to reassess once I get there and decide if I have a chance. I have 20 people in my group and at least half of them are taking this seriously. I'm currently in 3rd, close to 2nd and 4th really close to me and boosting. I'm not sure if it was meant to be a 6 or 7 day event. 7 is absolutely doable and 6 maybe not. It is defiantly exciting. Good luck everyone!!

Congrats on levelling up to Mid Level category! I think you have a good chance since you need only 13,000 points. That seems more doable than mine at 19,000. I would try for the white lovebird if I were you. Boy, wish I am at mid level. Good luck to you. :)

Totally agree. 19k in 10 days was very tough unless one could play full time throughout 10 days. Now it seems impossible in 6 days. LB events are getting more difficult.
- The points required for milestone pet jumped from 10k points in 1st LB event to 19k points in 2nd LB event, nearly double.
- The points remained at 19k for this event but the duration has shortened.

(I'm scare to even think what the requirements for the 4th LB event are like.)

Hopefully the are just trying to figure out what we are able and willing to do and everything will be more reasonable next time. I barely finished last event with my last milestone being 9,000.

My bar is higher but, so are my resources and still, it will be difficult. I was able to reach1500 points in, I think 15 hours (I was 30 min late to the event and do sleep at night) I'm still going to give it a good try but, that wedding pony is a sure thing.

I'm thinking the same, hopefully the team will find a nice benchmark for us to work towards. :) Btw, the wedding pony is beautifully designed, like the lovebirds in this event. The designers did a wonderful job!

Yesterday I Opened my game 2 minutes after the event started and was already down at 14 th place. Just as a test, I Worked my butt off all day and night got up to 4th place for a NY minute then steadily fell to 9th within a short time. Woke up this morning and back down to 13th place. No way I could keep up with as much game play as I did yesterday and even then only got up to 4th for a few minutes. So by day 2 I already know I'm out of the running. Not sure if that's the affect S8 wants.

Checked the leaders in my group who were over 1000 points before I even knew there was a new event. Most of them are over my level(I'm a 42) with loads of farm animals. So before even starting, I know there is no chance for me to place. Typical storm8 event.

I agree, it gets in the way of everything you are trying to do. You have to wait for it to slowly finish telling you about every single point.

ATTENTION: The bluebirds in the lovers perch boost are stuck. For 100 gems I expect them to fly around constantly like the other bird mailboxes. Otherwise very cute,Thanks.

Please can someone please help me understand what I'm doing wrong?

I started a few hours later as I didn't know any event was on but everyone in my group was fairly close so I wasn't concerned. However since making an effort to gain points (including boosts, saving pickups where possible) and aldready the leader is nearly double my points. I don't know what else to do.

I hope at some stage S8 will consider selling these animals (unicorn and love birds) for gems. At least I know what I need to invest and am guaranteed a pet.

When are you boosting? I do it in the morning when all of my animals are bouncing around, all of my orders in the plane hanger are ready to go, and I have the delivery truck full as well (just the check marks hold them in the barn if your able) Then boost. Save your picks and shovels and use them during your boost, send your plane orders, collect from the livestock, chocolatier (as many as can be made overnight), and the the delivery truck. There is a luck thing too, you won't always find points in the mine but, if you do, they are doubled and the wheel. That being said, this event is tough. I don't think there is enough time for the milestone bird for the high level players. I'm playing for the 13000 point bird. If I don't boost, I won't get it. Maybe you are doing everything I think is the "right" way already. I'm not winning, I bounce around from 1st to 4th all day everyday so far. I'll just keep trying for the white bird and hope someone gives up, or I will after I get the milestone prize

If someone reads this and knows of something I'm not doing, let me know. Please

I am doing pretty much all you've said above but I'm not making any headway. I just get concerned after "Truffle-gate" from the first type event.

I'm still not sure what else to do. I gave up on the Unicorn but had hoped to get there this time but alas no. I still wish I knew how some can be double the points in half the time.

Anyway, good luck everyone.

For the unicorn event, my last milestone (the foal) needed 9,000 point to get. This time the white lovebird milestone is at 13000 points to get.

Today I'll have to make a decision to keep trying or not. I'll need 2000 points a day and if I make that many it's, only from luck. I won't win, the others seem to want it more than me. If I can get the lovebird (the milestone one), even with boosts I'll be happy. $5 for a single pet, its habitat, and tons of decorations is expected. Add in a little excitement fighting for a bonus (gold and silver pets) and I'm ok with that too..I just don't know if this time its possible

For me it looks like I will end up in first place but doesn't look possible that I will receive the bird. I am at a lower level only 8500 points but looks impossible to receive. Judging from previous comments it looks like a lot of people are in the same boat. s8 needs to start doubling our points or extend the event

Don't forget that if you end up in first or second place when the event finishes, you will receive a PINK lovebird. The milestones is for the WHITE lovebird when you achieve the appropriate number of points to reach the end of the milestone.

I need 19,000 points to get the White Lovebird. With three days left, I have earned less than 4,000 points. Most of the spins of the wheel this weekend have resulted in decorations or points under 100. I'm doing the collecting from my animals (and am neck deep in wool from the sheep and alpacas), sending deliveries, making chocolate products and those dang market deliveries.

Let's put it this way. The lovebird ain't gonna happen.

I'm really curious about this because, although this event is just a tiny bit different, mostly I'm grouped with antisocial meanies. Like the unicorn event, I visited all of the competing farms and left notes of good luck and popped a few kisses. This time only 1 popped back. Last event none at all. No notes. I'm not sure why this bothers me but, it does. Has anyone else tried?

I seem to be having an imaginary battle for 3rd place. I don't want it. 1st, 2nd, or fourth are fine with me. Pink lovebirds or cash. Bronze trophy means nothing to me. I'm just trying to earn enough points for the White Bird. I'd be happy to let grumpy pants know that but, no response. Well, the response is more points and boosts from them.

I guess I'm learning what I'm willing and able to do this time. Very hard to accomplish. I told one af my neighbors after last event that I wouldn't do it again unless they were offering Pegasus. It seems, I lied. At least I'm in a doable bracket for the white bird. I'm seeing a lot of the higher and lower brackets with only 1st, 2nd place, or don't bother at all options.

My wishes for the next event are to lower the points for the milestone prizes to at least a little more reasonable. I can't say I'd want the events to last longer because I really don't. I can't see any problems with the birdhouse (or mystic falls from last time). They delivered mostly as promised. Maybe for the timed boosts, dropping the time and the price would be great. 20 gems for 1 hour? 2 hours is a lot of time to wait and hope for some miracle that isn't going to happen.

I am not taking part in this event as far too stupid. I am not willing to spend all my hard earned gems on yet another pet. Give it a break TL, event after event is getting boring. This leadership one is the most annoying one of all. Have to keep stopping waiting for the pop up from the bottom. If you think it makes me want to play, your wrong. I don't play as much when this type of event is on as far too frustrating waiting to play.

Please fix the lovebird boost, the little bluebirds are stuck, it would be so cute if the moved like the other bird mailboxes! Pretty please!
What do we have to do? Anybody out there?

Darkmornings, I have the same issue as you, last time my competitors were friendly, this time not so much. Just makes me want to win more tho.

Also yesterday my boost was 20 gems, today my boost is 30 gems, seems like highway robbery!

02-20-17, 02:16 PM
Ehhh I knew I shouldn't join in this LB event but I skipped on previous two and I missed participating in sth - big mistake. At first, two first spins and milestone boxes gave me over 200-300 points each and I gotta admit, it was a very encouraging start BUT that was all just lie to suck you in and since then I only get lousy 20-50 points and decorations. Well they fooled me and I fell for that, my bad.

I just reached half of points to get the pet and there are only 2 days left or so, definitely not gonna win. There is no way to win without getting gem boosters - LOTS of them. I don't use boosters but have sent huge amount of deliveries but it's not giving lots of points though.

Nobody in group is crazy about this event though so it's quite calm, I'm glad it's short. The habitat is lovely, the bird a bit too simple (imagine if it was colourful like an exotic Brazilian bird) for me but of course would be nice to get it.

You may want to start a thread on the LB pop ups in the Suggestion & Feedback forum where it's best seen by the team and easier for others to post their support for this. I'll resubmit this request again when there are more requests for it. Likewise for other suggestions.

This fell on a good week/weekend for me and I got off to a good start. I'm in first and 1,500 ahead, though not even halfway to the final prize. Haven't used any boosts, and have only seen one in use by another player in my group.

Probably won't do another LB again. Takes too much time.

I took a break from doing events since the start of the year and I have to say it was a HUGE relief to not have the pressure of events...but I saw the bird and thought it was cute (and thought it would fly...so now I'm disappointed after reading the above post) but this event is not even realistic. I am a high level farm with lots of barn space and money but I am only at about 14,500 points and I need 19,000 to get the bird and only 1 day left. Doing this over 6 days is NOT realistic and if I had realized that they had shorten the event time by 4 days I would not have even bothered to attempt it. Events are fun when they are achievable with some hard work, but this event is not at all and I have been working it quite hard. I will go back to staying away from events for some time again - I find doing trains and deliveries fun and manageable on my schedule instead of being a slave to the game.

I wish everyone good luck and I hope people are able to meet their goals!

Early congrats on winning first place for our group. The rest of us aren't even close. Guess I will aim for finishing 4-6th.

This is sooo disappointing 😭😭😭
I was doing it mostly because I wanted a flying pet.. I spent so much time, money and hard earned gems. Not even close to the 19,000 goal 😳 It is too time consuming, wont be doing this mistake again. I think this is actually the most unrealistic event since I play the game, cca two years now.

Not only does he not fly...he's runs really really fast. I had to limit the little boogers space. I do like his feathers though

Suggestion
Generate a bonus of 19000 to every turn of the wheel for the next 12 hours.
Then everybody will have a flying pet.
It is simple to TL to do that.
And i am serious ...

Is anyone getting random leader points without doing anything for them? I was happy for just a few minutes and now I'm ahead by 2 points. I only went to post on her wall. I'm so so upset. I couldn't have made up a better solution to the stress I was under. Maybe I should have been greatful for the antisocial group all along

I wish they would put the people who gem through it together and let us fair players have a chance at 1st and 2nd place. Right now I'm close to 13,0000 but the top 2 are above 27,0000. NOT FAIR!!!!!! Also, on my other game, I just need 8,500. I'm at 3,400. NOT ENOUGH TIME!!!!!

pattypurr
02-22-17, 09:40 AM
Exactly, I knew I had no chance within an hour of the event. I still tried, sneaking time at work, ect. I can't get a lovebird at all now, since time is almost up. I even spent a lot of gems...I guess not enough. Please give us more time....and don't end this in the middle of the week, some of us have to work!

mearro
02-22-17, 09:51 AM
Idk how but in last LB event I played just enough to secure 4th place and I somehow even ended getting 13k to win the pet. This time I did exactly the same (no boosters, not a single gem spent) and I'm barely reaching half the needed points. I know we have less time now though

If they must give us those awful LB events then at the very least start on the weekend (i.e. Friday evening) and end on the next weekend (i.e. Sunday evening), which would be 10 days like last time and seemed more doable.

And ffs improve the spin, getting 10 points is a joke when you need 13k, make it more appropriate to medium/higher levels.

I hate the leaderboard events. At least in the last two, we had a little more time and a better chance of getting the milestone pet, even if we couldn't get both. But this time, I'm not even close to getting the white lovebird at 13,000 points, much less the pink lovebird as the grand prize. Why tease us with the habitat for the pet early in the milestones if we'll never reach the goal of getting the pet? Very sad. I love the events where there are ways that we can sell items or somehow help each other, working as a community. But these leaderboard events that make us compete against each other where only 20% of the game players can get the prizes... These events are the WORST. Oh well, I'll just have to take my own advice that I give to other people-- don't stress over this one event. There will be something new starting immediately, and maybe it will be a kind of event that I have a chance at. I will save my coins and gems with the hope of something better to come next.

I actually would love to see this event extended for a few more days. I was hoping to get the heart shaped bushes/trees and the white lovebird, but with this event being so short, and with things in my life preventing me from playing constantly all day long, it's just not possible in so few days.

I made the conscious decision to not participate this time around. While I will work hard for any other event that FS2 offers--collection, county fair, etc.--I'm not going to engage in this particular type of event. The Leaderboard Events, I feel, are disruptive of the harmony that is so engrained in FS2 in which we all work hard together to complete world events, and just support each other in general (directly through wall-to-wall negotiations as well as indirectly just buying from each others' shops) to complete delivery orders.

It's too late for this. Many players push themselves on the last day, spending gems.

But milestone points should be adjusted at any time. They shortened the time from the previous event but "forgot" to decrease points accordingly.

02-22-17, 03:19 PM
I decided to try one more time to win one of the good prizes in an event. I have other things to do in my life other thanplay this game constantly, so I figured I had no chance but would try. For the first time ever I used gems for the boosts and shopped the newspapers hard for the airplane and truck deliveries, kept up as well as I could with my animals. And the results are going to be..............................same as playing parttime and not spending any gems. Will end up short of 6000 points when I need 19000 and nowhere near first or second, will probably finish in the top 10 after everybody boosts right at the finish time (I am timed wrong, used all my deliveries and animals with just under 3 hours to go due to my schedule. I am in second now around 3000 behind first but about 6 players within a couple of hundred of me.) I guess the moral of the story is this: Don't waste your time on these events unless you can commit 20 hours per day and 300-500 gems to try to win something worthwhile.

why do they make it so difficult to get the milestone prizes, I'm only level 26 and only have 4 of each animal, they have been going like clockwork and so has my chocolatier. ive brought stuff from the newspaper to send deliveries and they have been going non-stop and still nowhere near the 8,500 I think I'm on 4,405 I'm struggling to hold onto second place four other players are very hot on my heels and will probably take it with gems etc and I have none. this has only been possible by being ill and staying at home all day god knows how people with full time jobs and other commitments get to play. don't even get me started on the wheel! whats the point of half the fence things!

I had given myself a break from the game for the last couple of weeks, then randomly decided to play again a few days ago. Had no idea there was an event. Less than three days of playing, no boosts at all, and a very half-hearted effort later - and I have won my group with just 1,708 points. You could have knocked me over with a feather. (No pun intended.) Whilst I am very grateful, this seems really unfair to those who have busted a gut for a week and finished out of the prizes...

For any Aussies reading this, you'll know what I mean when I say that I've "done a Bradbury". Lol.

Thank you! I wasn't trying to achieve first place, I wanted to just get to the 19,000 to get the bird as in previous events my groups have had very hard working players who got crazy high points that I couldn't begin to achieve. I was surprised when I realized I was in first place and never assumed I'd stay there much less win. Now I need to take a break from events and work on Trains and the Market place deliveries to build up my gems and cowbells again...glad that event is over!

I hope everyone got what they were hoping for!:)

I was thinking more like a roadrunner.

I went after this more for the rewards it gives than the type of animal itself. One thing that is tough is that some groups were more competitive than others. My group didn't get into using power ups so it wasn't so intense. I won my group with just over 9,300... about 1,700 ahead of second place.

02-22-17, 09:04 PM
19,000 points was not realistic, so I was aiming to just get to the fences, and I made it! I did get the pretty fences that I wanted. AND, when I got back on the game after the event finished, I found that I was awarded 7500 coins and some expansion permits for being in 10th place! Yaaay! Thank you S8!! That is so cool that we still got some prizes even if we weren't in the top ranks!!

I think you get your hopes up for a flying pet. It's a massive change to the game design as everything current sits on one plane/surface. Butterflies and cupids, etc they all hover just above the ground. To introduce truly flying pets, the game would have to support at least two planes of existence, which for a mature game like Farm Story 2 is a big ask.

That said I don't see why they couldn't have at least given the birds a low hovering animation. A bit more wing flap is just a little more animation work.. that said given the changes at S8 more work is probably not welcome.

I think it's awesome you won within your group but I'm really disappointed with this event that some groups needed so few points to win their group. I had over 21,000 points and finished fifth. The Unicorn event was similar for me. I wish I knew how the groups were chosen as I never stood a chance. By the end of Day 2 Players first to third were 2000+ ahead.

I honestly do think it's awesome you won your group and this is not a criticism of you but with the points required so high and the event shorter you too only have one lovebird. There will be a lot of farms with lonely lovebirds. Loll.

Love chicken 😂😂 yes, sleeping on the swing would have also been nice as the tree is really beautifull, too bad.. I would have settled with only a little hoovering instead of actual flying, chicken mode is weird and the pet is really small.
I should not complain as I finished second, but I feel stupid as it costet me more than 100,000 (not counting the 5 days of lost income) plus cca 70 gems and loads of time..

I hope the next event is more relaxed, I really do love them :)

The bird is so... tiny. I know the last LB event also got much smaller statues as other reported. Never mind the statues but please make the pets bigger.

The habitat is just lovely, by far my favourite and that swinging seat is just asking for the bird to sit on it, what a wasted potential.
