    I keep wondering if the elephant fountain appears on the wheel less often than other pieces or if I'm just having really bad luck. I have gotten every piece to both sets except the elephant fountain itself and haven't even seen it once.

    Sovereign...How right you are. Tried for and got the Casino today and boy do I look like an idiot. The overall aspect of the Summer Event, I feel was great. Everything I tried for I eventually got and even though some of the tasks were a little more costly to perform they were actually worth the cost for what I was able to achieve in trades for tickets. I also agree with others that as you advance through the eras land does become a premium and the Palace and Fountain was not something for me to place in my city due to lack of space right now even though I was able to gain both in my inventory with most of the side buildings too. At a later time as I slowly rebuild my city I might place them if the space is there for them or not. We will see. I like the idea of working harder to gain what you want from spinning the wheel. If there was an abundance of everything all the time we would all be winners. The wheel can be fickle as I often found but it was also very generous at other times with just one spin. Such is life and this is just a game anyway. I just hope that the starters in the game don't get disillusioned if everything is not gotten with the wheel. They just have to keep plugging away and surprises will come. Just my 2 cents for what it's worth.

    I play on 6 different worlds and it seems that some worlds are just destined not to let you complete a set in the wheel - which I would never say was a Random wheel - I spun 9 times and every single time it landed on the same square 4 boab trees in a row (one off the prize I wanted) no matter where I pushed STOP, I even let it run it's own course once, after the 4 were gone it still landed on a 5th TREE!!! but then it clicked to the next useless prize and I emptied that collection and the final spin went one further??? I have tried 12 spins in a row and failed to get a single prize i am after - it purposely goes anywhere I don't want it to go!!! ARRGH. I have my main world in TE where it looks like I will fail to even complete a single set yet on my smallest most unimportant world in HMA I have already completed 3 palace sets and 2 fountain sets.
    What I would like to know is - Will it be possible to purchase the missing add-ons to the Palace or Fountain after the event is finished? And I don't mean at US$80 :(
    Or was this whole event just a total waste of my time and thousands of resources?

    One of the most frustrating thing about this event is when one is spinning the wheel aiming for a certain prize, spending his tickets and some other player comes and just refreshes the wheel...the tickets spent towards the certain prize all wasted for the previous player....wouldn't it be a good idea to put a delay time in-between (like 10-15 secs) from spin start in which the refresh wheel button is greyed out for everybody in the neighborhood...that should be enough time for a player to spin the wheel again if he wanted to or just leave it alone till timer runs out and anybody can then refresh the wheel..

    I like that and think you should create a thread on it in the Ideas forum. (Technically, I would think such a delay would also help ensure that what the server thinks the wheel contains and what every player is seeing, are more likely to be the same.)

    I think an even better solution to this would be, even if someone refreshes after you spin, but before it finishes, what was on the wheel when you hit spin should be the prizes available for you to land on. Upon stopping it would then show what it has been refreshed to.

    I would but the event is almost over now...so I decided to just enter my thought here in the main event discussion in case Inno dev still go through it!

    Err!...isn't that how it is now!...when you hit spin, you'll always land on one of the prizes on the wheel that you spun for....now if someone hit refresh wheel in the meantime...your wheel will still continue, come to a stop, you'll get the prize confirmation pop-up and on hitting Ok, the wheel will immediately refresh, without giving you any chance to re-spin the same wheel (aka what is now the last wheel).....this has happened to me twice now when I was spinning repeatedly for a SoK and some noob came along and refreshed the wheel...it's the best WTF! moment as you watch the unclaimed SoK slowly melt away as the wheel refreshes..

    Oh no!..we have hive mind...have I been assimilated by the Boorg!!! :P

    Seriously thought, did you get a feedback from the game developers on the idea...probably not I guess!....this is why I usually don't give out ideas on FoE forums...in most cases it usually comes to nothing..

    Yes you have…..the Boorg are everywhere and planning to take control of your kingdom!!!!!!

    I only posted my thoughts here…….. wishful thinking because being able to refresh the wheel at any time is a good way to waste one’s tickets so it’s intended to be that way and obviously will not be changed. What’s good for us (the players) is not good for Inno!

    But it never hurts to try and air one’s views, ideas or suggestions, maybe only some frustration because nothing happens.

    Too true ...

    One of the greatest joys in playing FoE is hearing about all the catastrophic occurrences and total devastation experienced by everybody else, from time to time. Equality of wealth and success is nothing indeed. Bring on imbalance and the widening wealth gap.

    All is well.

    After two summer events... I'm ready to move on from the Casino - as this is the EN server we should have a cricket event...any one remember the board game test cricket? If that could be turned into a version of the wheel - that would be kind of cool and would confuse the heck out of anyone not from the British Commonwealth

    I finally got the middle part of the Elephant set and managed to put them all together like in the Announcement picture and I gotta say being these two sets that huge having the Memorial Chhatri, an 1x1 building that looks more like a decoration require a road connection is ridiculous.

    Just because of one freaking tile I had to circle the whole set with roads making the set even bigger:

    Dunno why it's so blurred. It's being like that since I bought a big monitor ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Very nice ... love the roadway (I want some).

    Awesome on the big screen but maybe it's not running at it's native resolution (LCD and LEDs don't scale well).

    So, put the Fountain Gate and Memorial on the same side of the Fountain, with the Gardens and Titun Arun on the other side. The layout in the announcement is OK if the road is going across the top but if you are coming from the side, you can switch the buildings around to suit.

    That would look awful IMHO. Too much "towers" in one side and none on the other. Besides, following this poor schema of the screenshot I would have to push the Elephant Set on tile to the right and it would get misaligned with the Palace set. Or make a one tile curve with the road, but that wouldn't be nice either.

    It's just freshness, you know, but since I don't care about extreme maximizing anymore, I just want them to get pretty.

    Is there a way to make an RFC ( request for change) or at least an official position from Inno?

    After looking this up...that appears to be some bizarre amalgamation of US football(with the helmet and all the padding) and baseball(everything else)

    I was ready to move on from the casino before the summer event started... Winning a complete set of buildings unique to an event (the Elephant Garden Set) should not be a lottery, and doing so is alienating players.
