Back to Bonus Tier junk rewards...thanks. :| We still get 1 sticker per Bonus Tier so I suppose the “junk” is gravy.
Sorry if I seem a little negative, I had hoped I had seen the last of dyes, maps and the like in Bonus Tiers. :(

I’m so tired of TradeFests and RetroFests 22 days out of every month with their corresponding new pets. Four pets introduced just this month, counting the ghost platypus. It’s gone beyond overkill.

I do thank you for the bonus tiers rewarding something other than the same pet sticker over and over and over and over and over.

It’s not even about the pets for me, although does mean even more stickers needed before getting to adopt the existing pets I don’t have.

It’s the non stop events that are starting to drag on me, just a couple of days break from retro fest and then straight into a trade fest. I used to really enjoy these events when they were less frequent and felt like something different and special. Now they just feel like part of regular game play and are far less appealing to me.

You're right, Bec217. Even if pets weren't introduced, 20+ days each month of some variation of TradeFest is too much. Pile on the other events sandwiched in and I'm punch drunk. I would appreciate some time to simply play the game event free.

Tottaly agree... the devs must think that most of the players are retired or have no life...freaking annoying!

This!

I am fed up with all these events. It's not an event if it happens all the time. I am very happy to have new levels, but please could we have a maximum of 1 event a month? Pretty please?

And to think I thought we were done with Prestige Points, Map Pieces ,and Dyes in the TF Bonus Tiers.

I hate to always complain about TF's, but really, they would be better appreciated if they were less frequent and more logical with rewards. It would not be that hard to do.

I sure wish the programmers would actually play the game. I don't think they understand the game dynamic because the people programming now were not here 3 years ago.

We have heard the PB employees do play this game, but they obviously don’t play it the way we do.

For starters, they play it as their job, so they look for more activities and pressure to keep it from feeling tedious. We get that pressure from school or work or life. We play it after coming home from work, so we are looking to relax and enjoy it. Or we are retired and have no interest in adding chores or pressure to our relaxed existence.

Secondly, they play it with tons of storage and some of everything. For example, we learned from Mauimonkey’s Friend-ship experiments and correspondence with Support that all the PB employees have the old Friendship Friendly Flowers in their storage, so no one was aware the boat did not function correctly for players who don’t still have a bouquet in storage. What is the point of having them play then, if it isn’t to try to replicate a real player’s experiences?

I have also long suspected they also play with unlimited gems.

Back to bonus tiers - I kind of like seeing gems, doubloons and Primos in the bonus tiers, but I would like a much higher drop rate for random stickers. Relic Keys are new, so that’s interesting as long as they are rare. In fact I would rather have the goat reduced to maybe a quarter of the tiers, other stickers for about 60% and other stuff in the last 15%. The huge advantage to that would be it would be months before they needed to introduce yet another BT pet. We are getting way too many pets lately.

And the goat is oddly ugly. It looks like it is made of plastic, especially the blobby forelock these goats don’t even have. That doesn’t even get to the colossal bad taste of making a game of these animal’s medical condition. I am back to the conclusion I reached long ago that they need to reassign whoever is in charge and hire an adult who has the spine to veto the developers worst ideas.
