Event Winter Event 2015

    ^^ @ Andrew420 - pretty much my experience of this issue minus the support bit (I've only relatively recently raised the ticket so no concerns on that score from support).

    To me, it's still unclear what I need to do to complete the Winter Event. As per this post : https://forum.en.forgeofempires.com...inal-quest-is-bugged.31066/page-2#post-186027 I have a version of the Confectionery on Brisgard, Korch, Jaims and Dinegu worlds. I sold my Confectionery on Brisgard, got nothing, raised a ticket; however, when I sold my Confectionery on Dinegu I got a Large Confectionery in return.

    I'm loathe to sell the Confectioneries (1 regular, 1 large) on my other 2 worlds as I'm uncertain if the bugged/fuzzyquest will replicate itself - that's if it is a bug - but like I said at the start of this post, it's unclear to me how exactly this last quest works as results are 50/50 at this juncture.

    Depends on the quest you have in your other cities. If you have a confectionery and the quest asks you to sell a confectionery, it'll work. If you have a large confectionery and the quest asks you to sell a large one, it'll work. If you have a confectionery and the quest asks you to sell a huge confectionery, it won't and your best bet is to submit a support ticket for that.

    The event is still screwed up. Some people can't trade in a huge confectionery since we don't have one. That's not fair to us.

    When the Winter Event underwent testing on the Beta server, it ended in a total mess, with no opportunity to upgrade existing Confectionaries and players losing their stars by being denied the opportunity to spend them on the last days of the event.

    i raised the point that "We need to spread the word on the live servers that the event has no official and obvious end. If I had paid good money for diamonds to buy extra stars with I would be more than a little annoyed. Just as well we get given diamonds here."

    The Community Manager for the Beta server gave me the assurance that: "The event ends early on beta because its bugged like it says on the forums. The same won't happen on live."

    Contacted Support and they rectified my situation in a very short time. As a result I was able to sell my Confectionary and get a Large Confectionary. Thanks for the quick follow up. I now have a few stars still remaining to try for another. I had a great time with my first Winter Quest and got a few great prizes. Keep up the good work.

    not really because this is the 4th winter event....... if its your first winter event you have the chance to win one as a daily special prize, if you don't have enough stars then you have spent them already, if you had stars and didn't win one then thats the luck of the game and not unfair.

    if its your 2nd, 3rd or 4th winter event you have already had 1, 2 or 3 chances to win one and for each subsequent year the chance to upgrade it.

    what would be unfair is for players in their 1st event to win the same reward as those players who are in their 4th event and have upgraded year after year.

    Since 2012 all Winter events I played have worked in the same way, the last quest was to sell your confectionary to get the upgraded one as reward or, if you didnt have it built in your city, to sell three buildings to get the normal one as reward as well, so this way all players got their first version of the confectionary at least if they were able to finish the entire questline, of course.

    This year things were going as always until the last quest, on Noarsil this Winter event has been the first edition but unexpectedly the last quest, for all those who didnt have any confectionary, asked you to do:

    1- Get and build a confectionary
    2- Sell your confectionary (reward Large Confectionary)

    One might think, well you had your chance days before to get your confectionary and I'd say, right but did you really know that it was mandatory to get it at that moment?

    So far, all Todays special had one thing in common: all of them were OPTIONAL you spent stars to get it if you wanted or you liked it or, in other words, there was never a mandatory prize to get in order to complete a future quest.

    If this year I've been unable to get the single confectionary, has it been my fault?

    Having the Large Confectionary in the first year?
    Wasnt it in the second year?
    Excuse me, but I dont understand a thing

    After a warm december, finally the winter came. For the first time in my life, I cannot leave the house due to a thick icefloor outside. And on that day event is over. :P

    Perhaps it could be called "Historical Restoration kit". It would mainly be used on Champions Retreats for those who would like generate champs again from ealerier ages. Overall it´s most likely a complicated and rather useless idea in the big scale of things :D
