It seems this is now almost exclusively a pet collection game. Four new pets in a month.

Trade Fest after Trade Fest after Trade Fest, pet after pet after pet. Literally a few hours break between one and the next.

Trade Fest is *dull*. Repetitive requests, turning the game into a slog rather than a relaxing game.

Now and then, it’s a change from the usual, but twice a month is way, way too much. I don’t have the humming birds, the meerkats or the beaver yet, and now there’s a goat.

I greet each new TF with an eye roll, not a celebration. I dread seeing Horatio and his annoying airship. The relentless drive forward is frustrating, not enjoyable. Please ease off.

Wow agree wholeheartedly with everything everyone else has said! This is crazy!!! How can we do Traders at after no time to replenish anything??? My windmill storage is almost empty and I stacked for the retrofest! Honestly I am whipped! Theses bonus tier animals take WAY too long to acquire! A lot of ppl aren't able to do all 50 levels as they do have a life bedside pb. I feel they are pushing these things exclusively to get ppl to buy gems to finish , this the 40 single tier sticker stunt to get your dang pet! All about the moolah ppl!!!!

Whatever is put into the rewards need to be useful to the players - all players.

If PB wants to include storage upgrade parts, then let us use them - get rid of the cap on storage level.

The same with dyes. Give us something we can purchase with dyes that we don’t have an abundance of in storage already, or alter the germination time on the frog to reflect the number of dye we receive during the same game play time.

On the note of how often TF occurs, yes! I agree, something is not an event or special when it occurs 2/3 of every month. It is repetitive, tedious and boring to do the same thing over and over and over again to get the same reward over and over and over again.

Here is what worked for me - new levels. I remembered what it is I really love about this game. It’s why I stick around through some of the tedium. I enjoy the new story lines, the completing of orders to gain something I actually want (such as a new mill or the next part of the story or the next level and it’s field plots or recipes and storage expansion), and leveling up the pets I have.

I don’t need more than 1 new pet a month. It seems that what is enjoyed by the majority of players becomes the developers’ focus and then it gets shoved down our throats, which takes away the fun. Balance is crucial in all things.

Are we ever getting the 3rd Birthday celebration event? I'd much rather have that than another tradefest right now

Please check your files before launch a package download ;)


I second this motion!


I am also NOT getting the things my turtles and otter dive for. Why waste time filling goals (which do not give time to complete - AGAIN). How about these problems be fixed before they add new stuff!

I feel a bit bad for QueenMia. I mean she's just posting the info about the current event, and we're all jumping down her throat (not literally, you know what I mean)

The game has many issues but I hope QueenMia understands that we're not ambushing her. There's just a lot of frustration around these parts, and maybe the recent survey results will be processed by the developers and things will smooth out.

Peace & Love, Peace & Love - - - - and maybe some more land? :lol:

I agree 100%. They should lift the cap on upgrading storage by way of storage upgrade pieces (crates, pulleys, etc.); but these Bonus Tier Storage Rewards are not “Storage Upgrade Pieces” but actual ‘Storage increases’. I received +5 Windmill Storage in one of my Bonus Tiers. :)

I totally agree with you! There are way too many trade fests and too many new pets being introduced. I don't have room for all of the pets and find the constant fests boring.
Also - what happened to the way the tree house storage is sorted??? Makes no sense now.

I agree 1 million percent. It is getting to be more of a job since they seem to be constant. Add that to both the treehouse and windmill storage,have been rearranged and it takes forever to find anything and While I love the game, I am beginning to think the Devs care only about what they want. How long have we been asking for more land, etc.
