With the blueprints the late offer was for a smaller quantity for less money. I think the unit price worked out to being slightly higher for the late offer.

No matter how hard I try I'll never finish that tree. I have a job I can't be on here 24/7. This game used to be alot of fun now it seems like work. Especially after you hit level 75.

Grinding and grinding and grinding to decorate my tree. No real $ to spend on this game. This very Un-fun! I'll be happy when I get some snowflakes on it...at that point I will give up!

What gets me the most is that there aren't any rewards at level ups. Past events , even these solo ones, gave rewards at each level , including an item or two to feed to the project . Very dull without that.

That's a strong comment, and an offensive one at that. There is a big difference, you choose what you do and do not do. You are entitled to comment as you please, but please be sensative of real world issues. This is just a game. If you feel this game owns you, free yourself. That is a luxury slaves did not and do not have. I hope you find peace and joy, however that may come to you.

I have lost all interest in the Bay!! This tree event is boring and no fun! You can't earn enough points to grow the tree unless you you pay cash or gems for a stupid watering can that doesn't even make a dent in the points! You can't help friends or get things in the bizarre!! And don't get me started on how I'm possible the post orders have become! I may stop playing if it's going to start costing money and less interaction with friends! They obviously don't care that all f us are even upset!!

I couldn’t agree more Shawny! It seems that things on the bay are becoming more like work and less like challenging fun. I play this game to relax and escape. This isn’t relaxing or enjoyable at this point. I truly hope this is the last event of its kind and we get back to the bay we fell in love with.

I agree this event is kind of a dud. With only three items to produce, I found I had to ignore every other aspect of the game and just keep collecting and reloading the otters, moles, glass blower, wood shop, jeweler, plus the workshops making baskets and backpacks. This does indeed make for a very boring game, day after day making almost nothing but those items or a little random stuff on empty mills for inventory.

It is possible to finish without gems or money, but you have to be in a position where you can play all day long, at least to collect and reload 2 or 3 times an hour and keep those mills running as close to round the clock as you can. It really helps if you have mill mastery 3 on those mills, especially the jeweler. It also helps if you get one of those sessions where all the production times are shortened.

I don't know why they omitted the sweater and reindeer in a box (big point item) from last years event but they rally needed at least one more item to make, especially in an event with no gifting.

I also agree it was a bad idea to lump all the rewards at the final level, instead of giving some extra decor item with each level. It just feels like way too much very tedious work for not enough reward.
