    Is the pole going to be a building like the Cemetery/Confectionery/Tree of Lovers in that it's going to offer a visual upgrade every year for the first few years ?

    Thanks for your question. I think it will depend on if the event is considered a success! If it is, I think its likely to become similar to those event specific buildings, yes. I for one would like it t be, Im a big fan of those.

    What can we expect in regard to quests and rewards?
    Don't play beta so asking here, usually quests differ a bit from the beta, but it is a good indication

    the usual quests
    buy sector (with goods)
    acquire a province

    (not in this order)

    random, random, random, random, random, random, random, .....,

    Another event that I will probably not complete on all worlds (managed 12 out of 14 in the Yuri event), let us hope that some of the quest prizes will give diamonds as city space is getting rather crowded and I still have premium buildings in inventory on some worlds.

    What is the point of this event? Another event which causes lag and for a pointless reward in my opinion.

    The point of these events is to give the player more to do and cut up the bog standard mode of play for a while which for the vast majority of players leads to a more enjoyable experience :)

    I for one love these events for the above reason and more. It is a chance to get new buildings, a chance to get Diamonds and extra goods. It is also great for new players as they give the chance of getting their hands on buildings which are generally far better than the early standard ones.

    Thumbs up for these events. Keep them coming.

    and 3 eras later they sell them because they are worse than regular buildings
    and who really wants to waste a reno kit on a 2x2 cultural building ?

    for some players that is the only reason they play the event

    and after the last 2 events (yuri & leap year) without diamonds from random rewards I really hope this event brings me more luck

    "And thats not everything - if you complete all the quests, you can also get two new player avatars!"
    got very excited for avatars that at least half of the players would use after finishing the quests. Can you give some free city space instead because cities are overcrowded with GBs and still many of them in the inventory ready to be built.

    nice buildings might make your city look pretty, but i think most players prefer more useful buildings.
    i generally enjoy the quests, as its something new to d for a while - However they are nearly always the same old, same old, same quests and same rewards.
    how about some new useful rewards, like expansions, medals, perhaps goods that we normally would have to get through goods buildings or trades, things that are really hard to get.
    i realize the actually quest objectives might be limited, but when you are in the higher ages it can be a real pain to try acquire sectors, provinces and takes days to scout new areas.
    I really enjoy this game and play a total of 8 worlds, mainly because unlike most other games, you Dont need to spend cash to play it and advance in it, you just need friends, skill, patience and a little luck.
    For folks you cant afford to buy diamonds and packages this is fantastic
    So although i have a few things i feel could be improved upon, i say, thanks for a great game, and for trying to improve it.

    managing a limited amount of city space is one of the main challenges of the game

    Innogames, instead of distracting people from the issues you should fix by proposing this marathon of crap boring repetitive events, just fix the issues, please. Thank you.

    When the quest giver appears you are not forced to click on him/her

    Just ignore the event if it's crap and boring to you

    If the quests are like in beta then the event isn't too bad as there is an alternative to scouting and researching a tech which is to spend some amount of forge points. There is also nothing about acquiring a province. Only 2 things without an alternative relating to the map are infiltration and negotiation but this could be a problem if the only action taken is scouting before anything else can be done and you happen to be in higher ages.
    Building 3 decos with no alternatives is also tricky for those who just about started the one of the higher eras.

    I saw the questline on foe wiki so I guess that may change a little, right? :?

    ANZAC day event would be nice with memorial statue!... the event buildings kind of don't suit the game... for the older crowd which is 99% of people that play this game these events seem to only suit young kinder!... pyramid of giza, roman baths, big ben, ayres rock, opera house, twin towers, footy stadium, race track, boot camp or commando barracks would suit the games context better... avatars of famous generals, rock stars and presidents would be cool i like the Frank Sinatra, Yuri Gargarin ones!...
    Really good game! Apart from the events are getting more kiddy and provide buildings that dont suit the game plus most of the man and women players do not like them and they never leave the inventory or get deleted! eg; foeberge shop is good production but looks really bad, the worst prize this year was color guards everyone received to many of those and nearly ruined the event and made it impossible to win a watch tower they are really hard to get! I heard a while ago if you could not win a watch tower you could spend FP's to aquire one! If u could please bring that back that would be great ;)

    These avatars are useful at summer event, the wheel prevents having a second avatar, so if you have already one now, the chance is higher to hit something good on that wheel. :zzz:
