Success with Events
I'm finding that the events are becoming increasingly harder to be successful at for someone who does not devote all their time and effort to said game.
This Spring event is especially frustrating. It goes without saying that everyone wants the pet offered at the end. You know that, I know that, we all know that. Why make it so difficult? Why make drop rates so low? Sorry, I should be more specific. The drop rates for the lantern oil are fantastic, most likely because it costs coins to purchase the thing to use the oil with.
The game is not tailored for those of us who have jobs and other things to do. I choose to play these games in my spare time, and I think the playing field should be the same for all of us.
Why is it so difficult to do this? Please don't tell me that other members have done just fine with receiving items by making deliveries or visiting the newspaper. You don't have all the statistics to back that kind of claim up and compare it to the rest of us.
All I ask is that you make it a little less impossible for the majority of us to participate in these events and get the grand prize at the end. That's all.
This is why I dont do any of them. My first one was the Chinese one and I was so new I kind of skipped it. The next one was the gold pot and I was really exited to do it but couldnt cause I wasnt level high enough. To say I was mad was an understatement. I as so mad that the next one I just really looked at it and decided it was too hard and not worth it. The only reason most people care about is the deco pets and Im not a fan of them.
Honestly they are very hard and like many people have said before, you often need to use gems for some reason or other.
Since I decided that this event was a nogo for me, I started putting any event item up for sale as soon as I got it. I agree about the lantern oil, it is a waste of time to list, even tho I still list them for $1. I let them stay until I have another item to list in case someone wants them and then discard them
