I enjoyed this storybook event
I didn't enjoy this event
Got stuck with neighbour requests not coming through
I didn't finish - random hieroglyphic drops made it impossible
I didn't finish - ran out of time
Had to collect during the night
No gems spent, event completed
Some gems spent, event completed
Some gems spent, event unfinished
Did not participate in this event
Additional oasis trees for coins in the market would be good
Collection timers for the tombs too long
Did not receive any random adventure drops
I really don’t understand the drop rate problem. I thought by now I’d get something. I really need the falcons or I probably can’t finish. Or I have to stop my life to play this game. They know this is a problem so why hasn’t it been addressed? I’ve spent money on this game but I refuse to get the pack for those falcons. I’ve gotten stubborn about it now! I’m not sure about the fairness of an event that you need random drops to succeed.
I had problems with Desert Map pieces too. When Chapter 5 started, just after midnight, I sent out 40 requests to neighbors. 18 hours later, I had only received 9 of the 15 pieces I needed. I also only received 5 requests for pieces from neighbors, which I promptly sent. So I had to spend a lot of gems to complete that step and continue with the chapter. Now, after another 18 hours, I've received only 2 more pieces, and only 3 more requests from neighbors. One of the neighbor requests was marked as being 2 days old, and I never received a map piece from Stormie. So I would say some of us are seeing glitches with neighbors, and I'm assuming I'll need to spend a lot more gems to get through the 20 Ancient Artifacts we need from neighbors in Chapter 9.
I also have sent out over 15 adventures and have not received any extra drops, just cactuses. At least I'm not having to spend coins on cactuses. I've been playing for long enough to know that Storm8's random number generator has very wide swings: when you're lucky, you're lucky; and when you're unlucky, you need to either sit out that adventure or spend real money to buy a lot of gems. But I'm sure the randomness makes a lot of newer players quit in frustration. When I visit community members, I see far more people at level 50 than I see at level 25 or below, so I'm afraid that these glitches are driving away newer players, which is bad for the long-term future of Castle Story. Having reduced requirements for lower levels may help a little, but if "lower level" goes all the way up to level 45, then it really doesn't help the true newbies at level 25 or below.
Is today chapter 6? I'm catching up after being behind and I don't want to finish whichever chapter we're currently on.
I thought it was just me on neighbor request. It took a day for me to get mine sent to me, and I sent to people I know are playing. I only had 5 people send me requests, and it should have been much more.
I can confirm the golden egg drops from the falcon.
