Most players are not "full time Restaurant Game players". Many players have real jobs, need to work overtime, have family and children responsibilities, are students with exams and many are people with illnesses or health issues. Yes, there are probably extreme players who devote every minute to this game, but I don't think it is the majority.
Sometimes, mostly recently, I think you feel it is necessary to keep us busy cooking non-stop until the next goal- but I doubt that is a real need for most. I actually enjoy choosing the foods I cook and when I cook them- so please do not feel you need to keep us busy- most of us are busy enough😄
My real timing concern today deals with these extra foods to cook for an extra, not required prize. I can't believe 40 servings of candy corn cupcakes??! Is that a typo? Don't get me wrong, they are my favorite Halloween food--BUT that is 40 batches at 4 hours each= 160 cooking hours for 1 food. That is like 1 oven working 4 workweeks nonstop!! (4x40 hrs/week) I think that is too much for me!! Plus, I started to cook them early and none of those are reflected in my inventory!! Ditto with the 3 dishes that expire 10-19- I started to cook them right away and none of my dishes counted until I reached that milestone in the game. So, I had to cook more candy corn pizzas, etc which did not make me real happy. The inventory counters are not working properly which is causing us to cook more- maybe keep them locked until we get can actual credit.
1) Definitely keep the major monthly goal (a definite week each month, like years ago, would be nice).
2) Reduce the number of dishes required for the extra prize to be more realistic.
3) Get the inventory counters fixed - they started to act up with the Moon goal thus summer
Those would be major improvements.
I love the fun decor you have this year and am happy to have a Halloween goal. Thanks for all of your efforts!! They are appreciated!! 👻🎃joolie🎃👻
