Hi QueenMia,

I'm late to finding and welcoming you to the jungle known as our forum. ;)

I think you're some type of cat? Yes?

I sure hope you are, not only because I love cats, but some days you just may need those nine lives to stick around a long time with this rascally bunch. ;)

Anyway, thanks for the announcement. :P

Just curious, ( of course) may we ask you questions?

Are you open to having Q and A's?

Have to say I agree, not going to knock myself out to get loads of items I don’t want or need! If i complete it then fine but not really impressed.

Uhhhgh! More of the same...I will be sitting this one out for sure. I have spent plenty of $$ for gems to help me with challenges, but we continue to repeat items and animals over and over again. Don’t want to spend time or money to keep repeating. Most frustrating. On another note, why can’t we sell sundries etc after a challenge? I just keep accumulating “stuff” that I cant use or share. Makes no sense.

Hi Alastrea,

The game should recognise if you have these pets maxed and offer an alternative reward, but sometimes it doesn’t happen... If that's your case, I'm sorry. Please contact the support to exchange the stickers.

I hope that helps!

Thx for reply but I am not talking about Stickers, that worked so far in the past Retro Fests. I am talking about decoration I already have in storage once or twice. I guess my question wasn‘t clear, english is not my first language, so I am asking again:

The Game recognize if I have a pet maxed out. Why doesn‘t it regognize that I have Zouyu Fountain, Zen Garden, Carrot Patch, Eggster Basket, Ermine Kite and Wind Chime Tree? Why is there no alternative usefull reward like cacaotree or blueberrybush?

Looking forward for your reply.

Hello QueenMia,
I did not get a reply, and I promised to ask again. Why is there no alternative reward?
Why does the game not recognize that I already have the decoration? It would be easy to program this, only the will seems to be missing.
Take your time to answer, I am on vacation in Egypt and enjoy the beautiful sun.☀️☀️
Sunny greetings from Egypt ☀️

Anybody who has been playing very long isn’t getting new pets from Retrofest, just stickers toward ranking up the ones we have, or for some players, just alternate rewards.

I guess for people who need the duckling, this one is disappointing. Still, now that they upped the price of the silver Tradefest pets from 10 to 20, we can expect this more often. Maybe they could sprinkle the other 10 in Tiers 1 - 6 next time, or at least put them at a higher drop rate in bonus tiers or something to help people get enough to adopt.
