FE 2019 Castle Challenge avatars   Seasonal Events, CCs and Updates

Started 10/21/19 by Jenny MC (cbtx) (cbtx1); 1208 views.

Sorry, but this is the worst collection of avatars yet ---- it's supposed to be a fall/Halloween/maybe Thanksgiving event and we get:

---- umbrella lady (I know that as a child I was always terrified of her)

---- coffee fan (????)

---- scamp (just plain childish)

these avatars are certainly not motivating me to play the CC, and, really, if the devs are so completely out of ideas for avatars maybe they could ask for suggestions from the players?

It (the CC) really kind of looks slapped together as an afterthought. Not that I don't appreciate the various updates and events (I do!), but this particular CC is a dud.

(And with the inability to easily distinguish between cats and bats, etc, it makes it even more unpleasant and wasteful than usual.)

I agree the avatars don’t seem Halloween/Fall centric but you can always change the third one and get what you want. As for the CC, l think the devs reacted to comments that previous CCs were too resource intensive for new members so this CC is geared to those low level players. I feel it’s a nice change and allows me to concentrate on the Halloween/Fall rooms. The ghosts for the cats and bats are very similar but I think it adds another challenge and more fun in playing this CC. 

I can think of a ton of adjectives to describe this particular CC ---- "fun" is not one of them.

Let's see ---- how about tedious, wasteful, annoying, pointless, out of touch, redundant ---- just to start.

But I'm glad you like it.

I really enjoy the CCs, but I have to agree with you about these avatars - they’re just absurd. The 3rd one is so bad, I’ve already swapped it out just so I don’t have to see it every day.

Yeah, to me, they are not worth my resources of doing this CC, so I am bowing out of this one.  I wish they'd get back to avatars that are connected to the storyline!

I agree that the avatars should be creatively (and OMG, they have talented artists!) twined with the story line. But most are not in the same stage in the story.

There have been many *clunkers* in avatars. Remember the saccharine kids in bunny costumes? I am a nerd for avatars, and will strive for these, since I got the others, and the pets already, and have nothing to do, (besides personal life), except to collect imaginary coin and stuff to send to friends whom I have never met. But have formed an attachment through conversation, laughter, and tears.

Totally agree and have no intention of completing this CC. Sad, because many of the challenges are basically fun, but like you, it absorbs my resources.

I agree about the avatars, that I quite dislike as well. EG can do better, we know they can!

But I disagree about the CC! It is related to the event, isn't eating all my inventory, and there aren't too many luck parts either. Yup, definitely fun for lil me!

Different people, ... winkwink

Especially the last avatar for the CC....ughhhhhh.  They have had some amazing avatars over the last 5 years but these ones not so much...

I will say I do still enjoy the challenges!  I'm home a lot due to health issues and financial limitations and the challenges keep me entertained.
