I wouldn’t consider you cheap at all! Not that long ago you posted spending around $128 on gems. I guess your cheapness is exclusive to Tradefest.

I bought it and got a second offer, 7250 gems + 5 tickets for 99.99 CAD... I bought it too
All those gems...and not a single one used on this [or any other TF]. Seems more difficult to me, NOT to use them! Come on...not even on a bogus timed one???
There’s no shame in my game. Believe me...if I EVER had that many gems, I would darn sure use at least a few every TF; and I wouldn’t apologize for it either. We use all our island’s resources to finish these goofy events and gems are one of them.
I never said I didn’t buy gems, quite the contrary as shown. I had like 10000 gems at that point and after buying (some) eternal trees, turtles, otters, event cocoa machines, I still have a little over 6000. Gems are not for TF for a very simple reason, it becomes addictive. And when they run out, I would have to get more and they are not cheap. It becomes a money pit. I am very careful with money because I have a small chil and need to plan for his future....I do splurge within my budget when I feel like it.
Well I’m not too proud to say, you’re obviously just that much better at the game than me.
And I don’t know who is “helped” by you posting that you completed 50 Tiers in 24 hours without the use of gems and only using one acccount??? What’s our takeaway....that you’re just that much better than the rest of us or are we all just that unprepared and inexperienced
So this is what it’s all about, now I get it. It makes me sad, I don’t like that I made you feel that way. The premise of the game, the rules are the same for everyone (excluding lucky beta testers) but each game is different because each player’s approach is different. But there’s no competition, so no one’s better than anyone. It’s just a game....though I have to admit that I do compete with myself to keep the challenge going cause otherwise I get bored.
I post my results whenever I complete them all, I’d do it at a later time if it took me longer. It helps me (specially when there are screenshots) to see what others in my situation get cause I know what to expect or if I need to whine to support cause I’m not getting something I should. So I think it might help others too and decide if it’s worth their time and effort. On the very first page of this thread there’s someone saying something similar, actually.
Since we are doing screenshots of previous threads, I only started posting my results (not always though, as I don’t always complete all 50 tiers) when Shelley was first introduced here viewtopic.php?f=12&t=28559&start=160
.... and it was upon your request after I said that I had finished. So maybe it did help you at that point.
It took me more than 5 minutes, but if you scroll down on that same page, you’ll see the rest of our interaction. I even told BethM (by the way, she was also curious to see my results) that I had spent gems to complete it, so see? Not ashamed of admitting to it when it actually happens.
And I didn’t state for a FACT that you used gems like the other person did in there signature. I said “I’m pretty sure” gems we’re used. I also said, however you do it, it’s still an accomplishment. I’m done talking about it.
It was a clear and uncalled for jab at you, but that person didn’t name names. You just told someone else that you were ‘pretty sure’ I did things in a certain way, without asking me first and then when I said how things actually were you implied that I was lying without any prove of anything. Again, just not nice.
And I guess we’re done talking about it.
