Hey guys,

This thread is for questions and queries surrounding the Summer Event. The event contains a good number of new buildings with set bonuses, so make sure you check out the full announcement here where you'll find a video with Thi and Kai!

Hope you enjoy it!

I like both sets but it will be a little hard to fill both of them..i think with the new change there will be less chances to win multiple rewards that we like..

So after the massive amount of negative feedback on the beta server it looks like nothing has changed and it's still a lot worse then last years event

At least they are giving town hall tickets, that only started on beta once you had completed both questlines. The most useless prizes were portraits, would have prefered a few coins. I have 4 palaces in beta but only room for 1 set. Hope to do better this time around. Best strategy was to accumulate a few tickets, monitor the wheel for others to refresh and go for the gold or silver rings only if its a prize you want. Otherwise you just waist tickets refreshing and getting dud prizes.

They were NOT available on the casino wheel during the Beta event! Neither were military buildings unlike previous years.

You'll get both of the Palace Towers from completing the Main quest line and the Palace itself from completing the Bonus quest line. As such you only need to find the remaining two pieces on the Wheel to complete one of the Sets.

Inno did formally state a while back on Facebook that Cherry Garden (and now probably other Sets) pieces MAY become available in future events. I had took that as most likely to mean the Summer event; obviously not! Maybe you'll get lucky for the Winter event?!
Although I'm still wondering what happened to the two-, three- and four-storey Pagoda buildings that the Spring event art work displayed! Perhaps they'll all return next Spring for an Upgrade!

I am sorry, but I feel seriously let down, I just don't have the space to enjoy this game. I know one of the challenges in this game is making use of space efficiently. But I would love to have the Event buildings, but you introduce so many buildings, so quickly... do you really think you are fairly giving us space for this?

You never, ever, give us the chance to get more expansions. And you are now expecting us to continually find the space to place these huge sets. If i want to keep everything I have now, I cannot ever build these sets - it takes up 56 Squares! It may just be me, I only started playing January, currently in ME, but how I meant to be motivated to want these Buildings, but also keep my Residential, Production, Goods, Great Buildings, previous Event Buildings, Roads, and all the other things I've collected?

I am doing well expansion-wise, I have all Premiums except for the two ME ones, and have up to the 21k Victory expansion, and have the expansions from the map up to my Era.

I just don't see how you can't think we are handling this. It may just be me like i said, and I am unhappy with having to cut out my Production/Goods/Residential/Military buildings (only have 4 Goods buildings anyway, 2 each of my boosted ME types). And every Era I advance, the buildings get bigger, yet I get less expansions. I understand plenty of people have made it to AF/OF, but the continual release of extra buildings means I have to delete, what... My Ritual Flames/Watchfires? SoKs? WWs? Do i generate Goods only by Event Buildings?

I know event buildings are optional, but why release them at all, if the answer I'm going to get is ''You don't have to build them'', or ''Space is the challenge''. I've seen plenty of posts of people in AF/OF saying they have buildings they will never get to place. Can you not give us some extra room to make up for the hundreds of squares of buildings you've laready released this year? 25 for Spring set, 16 for Lord's Manor, etc...

Innovation Tower will go a long way in freeing up space by eradicating common housing.
Avoid clutter ... eat the meat and spit out the bones ... minimalism is key to a great city. ♩▼♩

Don't have the BPs, and means I have to trash my Coin income. I shouldn't be expected to get rid of my housing, what's the point of even having it if i can casually build Innovation Tower?

And honestly, I have no clutter. My town is very functional. A lot of space is taken by Soks, Terrace Farms, Ritual Flames, etc. I don't have any gimmicky buildings, or any decorations or Cultural buildings.

If you manage well your city you can save some space for new event buildings.the players who have their city full of shrines are excluded.in my city i dont have houses,cultural and military buildings or supply buildings.i benefit from my traz,inno and some other gb.

Perhaps you should consider just how many daily fps you can actually buy from your housing income ...
which may then form the basis of a plan to get Inno bps.
You also have the added advantage of not having to demolish and rebuild housing for each era.

Don't panic ... the solution is out there.

Why release them at all? Because not everyone plays the game the same way, that's why. Some event buildings are more suited to one person's style of play, while other event buildings fit better with a different style of play. Then there are the gluttons who desire everything. By having a variety of event buildings, almost everyone can find something of value somewhere along the line.
