Welcome to the latest new end of event feedback page. where today I’m asking you to tell me what you thought about the event, the characters, costumes, buildings, drops, questlines, glitches. Basically here’s the page where you can tell us everything and anything you want to feedback to Jam City, just keep it PG.
*Remember the event is ending today at 4PM UTC*
Remember you can say more than you simply liked or disliked the event, such as commenting on the format, the content, what material drops held you back or irked you, what character or costume you’re mad you missed out on, or even which you weren’t fussed about getting. You can share with Jam City how glitches impacted your play, or even how support dealt with any issues you had, such as did they help you get back on track or did they fail to help you at all. Basically any thoughts you share here will be passed to Jam City.
Task times seemed to be increased to 6hr and 8 hr where in previous version of this event of there was more 4hr tasks.
The drop rates didn’t adjust with the increased task times – Uncommon is, and has always been, the worst type and doesn’t conform to any standard (Always=1 in 1, Common=1/2, Rare=1/5. Uncommon should therefore be a 1/3 or 1/4 chance but usually less often than Rare. Couple that with an 8hr task and you’ll be lucky to get 1 item drop in 2 days – I’m looking at you Pot Plants).
Gaming Mouse drops were rubbish too and made it extremely difficult to collect enough to purchase the buildings.
I’m fortunate (or stupid, but definitely addicted) enough to be able to play 16-20hrs a day, all throughout the day even during working hours, and I still didn’t get enough mice to buy the Pot Plant building until the day before the event ended.
If any of the game devs read this then less of this event type or make some minor changes like if you’re going to increase the task time change the drop to a more favourable one.
The first event is many years that I was unable to finish. The drop rate for a few of the items needed for the Chris character was too difficult, even when staying on top of it all the time.
The drop rates really sucked in this event…uncommon? might as well have been rare…I’ve played this game since almost the very beginning, minus probably a couple of events, and I am in it a lot, so with that being said this was up there with one of the worst drop rate events in a long time. I did manage to finish, but spent clams to do so.
First time in ages couldn’t finish an event. It took every last second to get Influencer Chris and then to have his first task be 10 hours was just cruel and stupid. A real 2 fingers up to freemium players. The event formats NEVER change, just the skins. I sure do miss the days when there were new characters not just new outfits for the same old characters. I know the days of Star Trek and Spinal Tap and Bill & Ted are over but at least the format of play was different.
My comment is that the last phase was almost impossible to complete without spending clams. The drops were poor and not enough characters to drop things. Getting everything for Livestream Chris was tough enough, but getting enough gaming mice for the last building was impossible without being extremely lucky in drops. I fell 3 gaming mice short of getting the last building when the week ended and never completed the quest line. Not a big loss, just a small amount of clams for not finishing it, but it shouldn’t be basically impossible.
