    Totally pointless event. It’s controlled by a prize allocation system that will deliver no rewards to so many players because of a crap system that unfairly allocates prizes

    Did you not do it ? or did you not win anything at all. Because i got a lot of "crap" but also a lot of great stuff.
    and i learnt in beta that a lot of the "crap" can be put to good use, if you just know how.

    Agree you can put the crap to some good. But that is not my point,
    The method being delopyed to allocated the main prize is screwed in this game, It is highly likely that some players completed the event and got none of the daily prizes while some would of taken home 20.

    That is the reality of the wild crazy system being used and in a game where your game is about choices you and others make. It seems strange to have of Russian roulette tossed in the middle.

    Only roughly 1% of players will have gotten completely hosed by the daily prize system, and that's not Inno's fault - it's just the nature of any RNG based system, because math is a *insert expletive* evil-hearted *insert another expletive*.
    And besides, the only daily prize of note to anyone who's been playing for 6 months or more were the Cherry Garden selection kits... By the time it came around for the second time, it was readily doable to have at least 6500 lanterns saved up. Even getting crappy results in both my cities, I still managed 4 kits, and I can still get the basic Lv1 buildings via DC's over the course of the year.

    However, I do agree that Leagues in general suck and should just go and die in some wildfire!;)
    They work decently enough in the Forge Bowl, Soccer & Fall Baking events, but something this Spring event is terrible as the ponds crossed are just too low for a good bell curve.

    Now if anyone failed to the get the real prize of this event, ie: a Fire/Earth/Water pagoda house, then that's because they likely just didn't bother to complete even half the damn event itself!

    This event was beyond easy actually;
    1. You were guaranteed to cross the 5 ponds required to gain enough upgrades on top of the 'freebie' ones handed out by just completing the quest line itself.
    Even if you took the statistically WORST choice of animal every single time, you were still guaranteed to make the 5 ponds required!

    2. With a small amount of planning ahead using the wiki site, it was easily doable to complete the entire sequential quest line within 5-6 days at worst.
    With a sizable amount of pre-planning, you could readily complete the entire sequential within 24hrs.

    I honestly don't know just how much easier Inno can make things.

    Amazing response that did not really address my point. So don’t even know why you quoted, can only assume from your answer that you want a job a inno.
    My comment is purely about the use of the RNG system in the game, there are other methods that could be used that will allocate prizes fairly.

    If you don't like RNG's, then you need to just stop playing 99% of games altogether...

    I here chess is well balanced, though a few whiners still think it unfair that white always goes first.
