Nice one, I see they have decided to go for the classic Robin Hood as played by Errol Flynn and Olivia De Haviland as Marion and Basil Rathbone as the Sherriff of Nottingham

I think the red haired image of Marian originally came from the Robin of Sherwood series - my favourite version :D

anyone remembers or knows if there were diamonds or wishing wells in the last valentine event, or will there be in this one? or were they all random rewards with a small chance for 20 diamonds?

Cool!! Looking forward to this. I hope they have a Marion pic. I quite fancy the idea of being a redhead:)

It is a very small event, and as far as I remembered only a tree of love as mayor reward.

I think there were random rewards and I won diamonds on a few of my cities if I remember correctly. Tree of Love was the main prize last year and there wasn't any other special event buildings to be won. That's not say it can't be different this year but unlikely. Easter will probably have opportunities for more event buildings to be won.

correct, its a tree of love, but as normal you will get an upgraded version if you have one in your city at the end

during winter event some players complained that those who played on beta server had an advantage and time to prepare better for the event

the valentines event is currently running on beta so players wishing to get a 'heads up' on the probable (it may change but winter event did not) questline can do so there.

I never like to know beforehand (as much as I can't, having seen most events in previous years)... the element of not knowing adds a mini bit of excitement/anticipation to what has become a fairly repetitive and mundane game - I'm don't mean to knock it, but after nearly three years of playing there is not much variety, save events and new eras. So a little bit of anticipation about what the next quest will be in events like this does make a bit of a change to the usual daily routine. For me anyway.

Sadly for me...once again I can't take part in the Valentine's quests.:(

Quest 4 requires me to plunder 2 buildings or acquire 2 sectors...and as I have no sectors available to acquire...and have always maintained a moral code to never plunder anyone...I'm kinda left out in the cold again.

This isn't the first time we have had the same two choices in an event, and I'm wondering why it always has to be the same two?
Why not plunder 2 buildings or polivate 50 people...plunder 2 buildings or spend loads of forge points on a GB....plunder 2 buildings or give loads of goods...etc...anything but the same two choices that holds all non plunderers...that have completed the map...to a non way out??

Because of the same two choices as given in previous quests...I am unable, once again to take part.:(

True, it is repetitive. Time for some new event setups.

Unfortunately..it gave a choice to either plunder or acquire a sector...and I had already acquired all sectors...so it then required me to plunder.:(

As a non plunderer...I'm unable to complete the quest

I've always said from day one...since I joined this game that I would never, ever plunder another member...and it ain't about to change now...several years later.:))
So if I can't play the Valentine's event and win a big tree...I still have my integritree.:)))

A Moral Code to never plunder anyone is an excuse? Seriously? get over yourself.
Ask one of your neighbours to leave a Hut or a Stilt House in their city to enable you to plunder and complete a quest.
There just isn't a reasonable excuse for you not to complete the quest. This is a game not Real Life. Its not a real house and if your neighbour agrees to let you then it is an act of friendship and you can even offer to return the favour.
