    Overall disappointed with the event. I gave about 25% of the effort I gave during the Easter or Halloween events because the 'payoff' (in terms of balls) for adventures was depressingly low. As a somewhat more casual player I don't have that many explorers to send out 20x at a time, nor time to grind advs for pitiful returns, so the vast majority of my balls came from doing all 5 of the event scenarios in one day with premium. The new geologist and the unique buildings were of course wonderful but beyond that I really didn't have the heart for this adv. The World Cup is about people coming together and team-play - this event certainly did not espouse that.

    - another field, more floating houses and another lucky was very cool;
    - drops from explorers are alright, from adventure are crap, not worth my time to run an adventure and get 10 balls when im aiming to gather 10k, so just decided to trade for all of them and done, for low level players this was very bad;
    - achievements are easy to complete as always;
    Agree with all of this.

    I don't much care for the new dynamic requiring multiple copies of the same building to get anywhere near reasonable production times; I would much rather have an upgradeable building (or, as we do with Epics, perhaps a new blueprint that upgrades the production). Snack stand seems overpriced for what it can do and value it brings due to its (lack of) speed, but I do very much appreciate that it has a QUEUE, though.

    Adventures for balls - yeah, didn't really bother, drops were not worth the effort to run adventures for that, especially with MCC just released (but not dropping balls). I bought a lot of balls, but they were in shorter supply due to low drops, fewer active players, and such across the board, so that's not a plus for lower-level players.

    Only achievement that was even really remotely "difficult" was the 1,000 collectible clicks, but it was doable if you wanted to. I suspect the real consternation over it was that it was hard to come by balls via other means, so everyone wanted to get that last achievement for the balls it provided.

    Oh, I forgot about the floating residences. Always very glad to get those… and this time just as a daily freebie, too.

    I enjoy the challenge of A Host Of Responsibilities, it had the appearance of a crisis event built into the event. I found the challenge added a new interest to the event and the rewards for challenges were very generous.

    The event rewards were thought out. I am overall satisfied with the event.
    I am interested to see if we will be able to produce additional items in the snack shack, for example steaks, irma's, hot lemon teas, cookies etc.

    The collectibles did not seem balanced this year, although I did have more than I needed.

    It's a shame these events are geared towards single player, rather than co-operation. The adventure event loot drops (small) kinda made it not worth adventuring with this one too. I think the only way that many people would have got every item would be buying balls from those willing to sell them. which is a shame for the lower levels that probably would have benefitted more from the items on offer. Other events I have seen the things on offer reasonably easy for all to achieve which makes for interest in the event and also encourages people to help each other.

    The new Geos are great. But would have liked to have seen a second Lucky as was mentioned in the post about it being made available some time during the event.

    Snack stands - would have been nice to see the extra as level upgrade of the existing one rather than take another building space.

    Would love to see an event where team work is encouraged again..... even if i have to do heaps of black knights to be part of that.
