Winter Event 2021 - Feedback

To tell you the truth, I am happy there was NOT a diamond "separation".
But I think if Inno was serious about making money, that would be the best way to go.
Honestly? I think if Inno went the way you suggest it’d have the opposite effect longterm. The game only has appeal as long as the worlds are populated with enough players. If you make it too skewed to pay to play then you’d lose too many players for pay to play to remain viable.

You did not win any prizes - you only won the choice to buy at any point in time that you had been offered the very first prize. One prize or all 9 prizes - same cost.

This complaint will be raised may times from now as players winging the event without reading the small print realise they cannot fill the calendar nor get the sleigh free. In player defence we are so used to seeing diamond boxes to complete things quicker and to heal troops etc that the diamond box looks like that is what you pay to get a fully filled sleigh if you havent got it. Only when the 'price' stays the same as more reindeer found does realisation dawn. I have a full sleigh so i ask myself is it worth £42 approx (the price to get 3k diamonds) Given everything in the sleigh is available free in game, via AD (selling free items) or by patience in the event (canal upgrade) the answer is simple...nope. Sadly the psychology of this is flawed as whilst in the past I have made purchases to improve my game and support the platform this 'goodwill gesture' at this time of year is....to quote the Xmas classic 'Love Actually; 'Enough Now' and P4F.

No wishing well this event? Been swapping daily on 5+ worlds and haven't seen a single one for the daily special. Seems like a new thing as Fall Event didn't have them and Halloween didn't (during Beta) then it was added in.

I have them come up 3 times already as switch prizes. Which is good enough.
 
Last day of event,. hoping its a WW as only daily that is available as a swap not to make it to daily list (fingers crossed), surely if its available as a swap will be on daily list too!!

no key option on the daily today just needed 1 segment hey ho not spending 100 diamonds to get it as only thing left worth having is a store building. Will only cost 7100 diamonds to complete calendar, makes sleigh look cheap lol. Only 11 days until next event :)v (switched daily prize for info and got a bit of the train no WW)
Incidents still have stars today if lucky.

What do you need wishing wells so bad for? The diamonds that you gain from WW, FoY and a few other methods will soon only be available to the specific world they were won on - the diamond farms are finally being terminated. (well, maybe not terminated, but greatly reduced, since diamonds won from Recurring Quests and Quest Rewards will still be available on all worlds). As such, what real reason is there for WW? You want FoY, reorganize your cities on the other worlds so you can do GE and you will be able to have those (just not be able to use any diamonds won anywhere else)

Is this speculation? Or do you have actual reason to believe the fundamental mechanics of diamonds are going to actually change?

Event quests don’t give diamonds…. Buildings do. Normal quests do. Event quests don’t and never have in this format. Only the Historical Questlines might have given those were random rewards (but don’t recall those ever paying out diamonds either)

Out of interest how come there was no key segment in the daily quest (10 am on 2/1/22 for me) yet another 10 stars were awarded at midnight on 3/1/22 in event and event runs another 9 hours?

Dreaming or facts? Source?

In past Winter and Fall Events the last X hrs don’t provide event currency / key in Daily Challenges

However do keep in mind players can change the starting times of Daily Challenges. While I could be wrong, I suspect it’s because we can change the clock for when it starts and ends that results in it not providing that currency

This is a bit late. I'm a new player so I had fresh eyes going into this. I can honestly say I don't think I will participate in its current format if this event is run again in 2022. It was confusing and I didn't feel I was in control of anything at all. Everything was a random event or a random selection. Bit like putting money into a poker machine. I've had more fun at a casino.
