I’d rather we had a week or so rest between all these events. Its ok for those that play all day but some of us have other things to do!

Well at least this announcement is published before the start of the retrofest.
Great another pet. Can you also give us more water space to place this pet because otherwise there isn't really a point in playing is there??
Do you even realise that a vast majority of your players is tired of playing event after tradefest after retrofest??? We want to play this game for fun and you're taking the fun out of the game. We want some rest to enjoy out game, to decorate our islands - even though there is little space - and to just play without feeling like it's a job to get things done in time or else....too bad.

So yet another event where older players have to slog through multiple tiers giving unwanted items that we already have in order to work like crazy on the bonus tiers in an attempt to get another pet that we don't have room for. I used to buy gems with real ££ sometimes but I've just put my budget for this month into another game altogether because PB isn't fun any more.

Thank you for the update.
I'm confused as why the in-game Special Events board nor the new News Feed isn't being used to make the same announcement ahead of time?

Thanks QueenMia

I feel a bit bad that you're stepping in here and most of the players are a bit grumpy, but there's a reason they are. Many of us have given our input here in the forum over and over and it seems to us that it's falling on deaf ears.

The game has become stagnant, and a chore, whereas it once was fun and something to look forward to. Just like playing a song you love too much burns you out on it, having TF after TF for items we already have gets to be tedious and annoying. Sure it''s great that new players can get stuff we already have, but it sure would be nice if the software checked to see if we already had the offered item and returned something we did not.

Anyway, thanks for the update..............

Nicely stated, Oblio.

QueenMia, here are a couple of ways to offer retro items to new players and keep long-time players happier, if you'd be so kind as to pass them on to the development team.

1. Have a Flash Fest for the retro items. No bonus tiers. No new pet. I believe this format would be easier and more enjoyable for lower level players. It would also allow long-time players the option to sit it out without feeling as if we're missing out on something.

2. Offer the retro items in the Bazaar for DYES, coins, pearls, or some combination. You already have some legacy decor items there; why not retro as well?

:) I'm probably in the minority here, but I think I'll just sit this one out. I already have many pets and most decorations in storage, so there's really no point for me to participate. Thanks anyway, and good luck to other PB players!
