    It was easy to finish the longer goals because there was plenty of time to schedule it all around real life things...usually I would have almost a week left. It was even okay when it got switched to 15 days because the requirements were less for the appliances. Now that they've gone to the 32 of one part & 40 of another part per appliance, it's difficult to finish. Yes, it's nice to be able to craft the parts from stuff that drops while cooking the recipes, but the drops are MASSIVELY unbalanced. Yes, you can spam the drops by cancelling recipes and starting new ones, but again, the drops are MASSIVELY unbalanced and it takes a long time.

    Even with active neighbors, building one appliance takes a long time with so many parts required, never mind the THREE that are required to finish one of the steps, and I usually don't make it to the second set of appliances until 3-5 days from the end of the event. I have been unable to finish the final goal in both RS and BS for the last 5-6 events, and it's beginning to feel like a lost cause. I've played both for at least 5 years and I'm growing tired of never finishing. I'm not going to spend money on a game that never improves itself and only makes it harder. I used to spend gems on fun decorations during sales and things, but there's little reason to now, when I have appliances that only have half of the recipes unlocked and appliances in the process of being built that are going to take a month or more to finally finish up after an event.

    Put it back to the way it was. Being able to build your own parts was a good idea, because it helped people that didn't have many neighbors, but the parts requirements now are ridiculously high. Either give us more time to finish or lessen the parts requirements. You've made the game an un-enjoyable slog and I'm not paying money to encourage that behavior. I'm getting to the point that if I don't like the final goal, I'm not even going to bother attempting the event at all. I enjoy the side goals more because chances are I already have the appliances built--cooking the recipes is more enjoyable if I don't have to worry about building appliances. The side goals are more like what the game should be.

    I am not sure this is an 'active' post, as the poll was a few years ago it looks like. However, this does seem to be the appropriate place for this comment. The previous post here is two months old now, but I echo those sentiments in many ways. I have been playing both RS and BS since 2014 like Eilonthay, and I have grown increasingly dissatisfied with the current playing experience.

    I have what I think are a good amount of neighbors, but many of them seem to have given up on the goals over the past several months, and no longer gift goal parts. I haven't tried to determine if they answer requests or not. I bring this up to illustrate one of the primary reasons the current goal requirements are turning a lot of people off to the game. I too have been struggling to finish the goals by day 15, and always because of the quantity of parts needed to build the new stoves, especially the second stove/oven in the goal set. 72 parts to make one appliance is incredibly hard to get, and certainly not quickly, so you have less stoves to get through the goal. I used to be able to get 5-6 stoves before a goal was up, when you still needed normal amounts of parts. Even though the parts usually had one new and one or more existing parts, you still didn't need 42 for the first and 72 for the second. Yes, you can 'farm' parts, but as mentioned above, very-unbalanced in the drop frequency. It seems that always one part, at least, has a very high rarity in drop rate. I can usually finish the entire side goal before I have started on the second recipe on the first stove in the goal, since I am cooking 5-10 of the 2 hr recipes on one stove, and then 11-20 on two stoves. You get the one stove out of the gate at least, but it takes a long time to get the parts for the second stove. I have found myself more often having to pay the 2 crystals to bypass having the 3rd stove completed, just so I can move on to the second recipe, and wait for more parts over the following days.

    I have been considering for some time now just giving up on it. I also have struggled to finish goals while playing diligently. Games should be fun, not make you feel hopeless. I like a good challenge, but I would appreciate the number of parts needed to build a new oven be cut in half, or at least seriously reduced. And honestly, do new goals need to start like clockwork every two weeks? It feels more like work than entertainment half the time, but maybe that's just me.

    Unlike the goal-related feedback polls, this poll is staying open indefinitely, and respondents only get one (still anonymous) vote each. Please feel free to vote above and share your comments here. Your feedback is greatly appreciated
