Great prizes for Castle Challenge????   Seasonal Events, CCs and Updates

Hi Hirento...Your niece's predicament is VERY VERY similar to mine. In an effort not to clog the feed I won't repeat everything I just posted in my response to Honeyphan, but you might check it out. I completely COMPLETELY empathisize with her. I didn't have the resources to waste either and in fact had hoped they would be part of the "great prizes" that would actually help me get back some of what I lost. I could care less about the avatars. Its too bad we can't trade them for something useful!!

Were I not willing (and able) to pay for diamonds I wouldn't/couldn't continue. I know not everyone has the luxury of doing so, but I have no kids, don't drink or smoke, or even play bingo ;~D so my "fun fund" is I'm sure a little bigger than most. It truly is the only thing that allows me to repay friends on my gift rotation (15 a day) with prizes equivalent to (or at least close to) their gifts to me. And for now the game entertains me so I'm good.

But I VERY MUCH understand her predicament. I too have to delay sending out the zepplin/air ship for lack of supplies. And yep! Pet medallions are one of the 30-day tasks I would have completely skipped had I known. Believe me I do multiples rounds of just doing HOSs before I may do a series of leveling up oriented tasks. Then back to rounds of HOSs... And so the story goes...L

Underwhelming was the 1st thought that popped into my head and it seems to fit!! I guess I just expected more. My error obviously. I remember participating in one of the world wide events previously (a LONG time ago) and had fun doing it! I was disappointed to see they had discontinued them due to pervasive cheating. On the other hand I play another game (June's Journey) with teams and global events/ranking, etc. and the widespread blatant cheating/hacks utilized by MANY teams do take the wind out of a team's sails who plays based on the rules of fairplay. Sadly, that company has gotten stingier and stingier with their prizes and the use of resources to even compete FAR outweighs the value of the prize - that is if you even had a chance at winning! The blatant exploitation of loopholes & utilization of methods/techniques not accessible by all players can be demoralizing for teams (we compete twice a week) and yet the company is making money so they will not even acknowledge the discrepancies. So as sad as I was to see the events d/cd here, I respect the fact that the company just wasn't going to tolerate it. All of that to say, I'd LOVE to win 15 unique stamps!!! LOL

Most anything (unique stamps, airship items, diamonds, gold, ZZ items ---- anything!!) would be better than avatars, which are useless.

Lol, yes that's what's my niece wanted to do! She's only 13 and wanted to spend her allowance on purchasing diamonds!

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, and naturally wouldn't let her do that!

But I felt responsible, in a way, as I was the one introduced her to this game. Seeing her almost in tears over not being able to finish one of the challenges that day or the next but having to wait 3 days - that's how long the Dice game took her - well I realized that's what the developers were aiming for. With the challenges, I mean. I suppose I got a bit disillusioned by this experience.

I had her put the Phoenix egg on her wish list, along with the rest, so that I at least could feed her something to sell.

That's sweet of you to help her with some items she can sell. What you might consider encouraging her to do is ask for Google Play cards for her Birthday or Christmas, etc. Then its like a double treat! I have NO SHAME whatsoever in telling people I want them when someone asks...Even my Mom will send me one occasionally! Just something to consider!

Oh, wow - that's awful!  Yeah, I did think you were new - sorry for all of what you probably knew already! lol

At least with the events coming up - fall and then Christmas - that will give you a chance to build up your inventory and coin, and if you need more private rooms to play, I have 4 games for that purpose, along with my main game. :)

(I need to hunt and bump my thread for that soon... )

I would have loved to have known about MC at the time of the tournaments - I would have loved to play them, but I understand why they removed it and respect them for going by the honor system as their code of conduct. Nice.

I enjoy playing the tournaments in Wanderland and was really grinding away at that for awhile, often getting the first prize ruby chest or the gold - but now I just dabble. lol

I've been exerting most of my energy in The Panic Room, since they have soooo many events that are fun to play and the mystery/story is so good...
