I hope everyone who wanted to finish was able to do so. May we all get a surprisingly large percentage of trade related drops. : )
I so appreciate this forum and am now giing to investigate what this weekend warrior thing is. : )
See you at the next event!!
PS I remember how anxious I was that I wasn't going to finish on time, particularly w that gummy drop rate. With some creative help (my night owl husband collected from steeds during the night as trades for coffee in bed next day) : ) I was able to finish.
Nevertheless, many have posted difficulty in finishing. S8, it isn't about making it ridiculously hard for players w larger alicorn fleets!!!! That would be stupid Red Queen thinking, an Alice in Wonderland reference used in economics, evolutionary biology and sociology, to name a few, about the pointlessness of needing to run faster just to stay in place. There are loads of great ideas in the suggestion pages, including a relaxing event that is easy but fun to complete. The fun does not have to come from overcoming anxiety and racing against a clock! If you want to extract funds fro us, have gems on sale until 2nd Jan and offer sales we can't refuse, i.e. something w guranteed trade related drops like the dark unicorn (that I missed entirely, oops!). The new expansion requirements are onerous, need items that drop ONLY expansion items, enchanted lanterns, proper wisps (not earth wisps), expansion permits, and trade tickets... and of course the odd explorers permit, pretty please.
Season/Christmas holiday spirit, like the Kris Kristofferson movie out now? : )
