I'm almost ready to leave that brick wall and its already starting to feel good! 7 more place settings, 4 more pitchers of tea and I am done! For the first time ever I am deliberately leaving a building unfinished. It doesn't feel right at all. Lol It's not that I won't have time to complete it, I just cannot muster any enthusiasm for meeting the requirements for level 10. Especially considering the awful drop rates. And the fact that the tea party is heading directly to storage as soon as the event is over (although I do prefer the look of level 9 better than 10). Same for the teacup fountain aka pile of dirty dishes. It bothers me that I won't get it, but honestly, it would be destined for storage anyway.
With enough energy and the ability to check in every two hours for 21 days, I think this one is probably doable without gems. But to me, it is just tedious and boring, and as others have said, the prizes are not equal to the time and effort put in. Getting Rouncey or Destier wasn't even this time consuming and they drop 40 energy a week! Same for the feast tables. Those are prizes worth a lot of time and effort, and even a few gems if necessary. Huge coin only buildings and deco, and repeats of animals just don't make me want to fight to the finish for them.
I've spent 5 gems total, 4 to speed up the tea party for one last collection before bed and 1 to accidentally speed up a mushroom. And I didn't even get a tea leaf from it. (Ah well, at least it was the cheapest gem trap ever! )

I too am going for level 9 only. Going to resist the pressure to level 10. I hope. Because I know I posted somewhere I was going to stop at level 5. Lol.
But this time I'm really really really going to stop at level 9. I think!!!!
I have been on level 5 for days! Chopping rocks and tapping ponds using 80 energy and only getting 7 porcelain rocks? I was having much better luck when this event first started! I only have a few Alicorns so obviously not going to finish but also have a terrible time clollecting for the community prize! I've read some of the other posts and from what I've read it sounds like there has been a drop in a lot of the items. It feels like S8 is setting us up for failure! I don't have the time to play constantly and I wish that S8 would take that into consideration, I know I can't be the only one that feels that way!
