    I dont know bout you guys. but i got ton of stuff from this event. did all the quest chains (was lots of work) and without the gem purchases got:
    big floater, small floater, improved floater, wonder res, scout, rack accelerator, ton of arrows and buffs. something like 20 prem buttons.
    this is a great event even despite the gen switch bug and the 2 refresh per hour.
    after 8 years or so still here. ty bb. raise the ceiling.

    We did 2.2 billion last year, so this will put us down to about 30% of that. I don't see how they miss the mark by that much, but I'm sure at the end of the day it doesn't matter.

    I couldn't bring myself to do the side quests because this game is just too annoying, but I'm happy with what I did get from the festival hall, which did not require me to do much.

    If you are interested in the original Thesettlers game.
    It is playable on Amiga500.
    https://wowroms.com/en/roms/amiga/th...ers/38122.html

    The settlers II: Veni, Vedi, Vici The Gold Edition.
    Is playable in DOSbox

    I used to own and play 2 on an old PC way back when. I own other settlers game on my steam account. They are not good.
    both of the above mentioned games are easily accessible in internet archives. You can have the games loaded and working within minutes.
    Same cannot be said for the current game state.

    There is no reason to be surprised there is paid content available.
    Every game has a free model, and a paid model. If you want the extra stuff, buy it. Otherwise don't.

    The unfortunate thing is This game has not taken care to balance any sort of bang for your buck. When a package of digital content can run a hundred bucks. And you offer that multiple times a year. What is the end means?
    That somebody will purchase all the packages, or be selective of which overpriced package they attain?

    There is no necessitation to acquire the paid content.
    In the same regard there is no point to building anything in this game other than wanting to.
    So you are not missing out by not having it. It's existence is not problematic.
    The problem lies in player availability.
    the current game state has locked many players out.
    Which somehow people think is a different complaint than when flash was disabled and many players were locked out.

    The current game is geared in a way where low level players are idiots.
    They just join any guild that offers an invite and these guild leaders are not leaders. They are just in it for the title of having people below them.
    Where a leader will manage a backend community to ensure all members are connected outside of the game. Because day's like this will come where you can't get in.
    And you don't want to not know why.
    These leaders do not release guides or helpful content.
    They don't give long lasting advice or encourage players to actually take the time to learn.
    New players race through levels getting as high up as they can without even knowing why.
    Now you have all these people over level 50.
    Not able to make elites, have garbage for population, have no arch, and no clue how to organize in a community event.

    Worst of all.

    The only reason I actually cared about this event and looked forward to it. Was so that I could attain a mass quantity of Misty Cake maps.
    This is the event their release is tied to and it is without hesitation my highest value map. Undoubtedly the best map in game.
    And now it is removed because it is too hard.
    Oh wait.
    "it became quite apparent that many of you were running into trouble when attempting to tackle this retro nostalgia trip. "
    You are kidding me right?
    Too hard.
    It is too hard to look at what you are attacking.
    It is too hard to understand the games battle system which has not changed in 11 years.
    Now That map is gone, thanks to complainers.
    People would not shut up about "give us unity" give us unity!".
    Here you go fools. Here is unity.
    Here is the client and game state you could not shut up about wanting.
    You got what you wanted now love it.
    Ruined the game because you just don't know any better than to shut up.
    Unity client wasn't ready. We knew that, we saw that, you STILL asked for it.
    Misty cake is too hard and it's gone.
    What a joke.

    Wasn't the last event also hard? What was it.. soccer?
    Yeah. I bought everything.
    Spent over 120k soccer balls. Bought the swan boat. Bought multiple storehouses.
    Gave away 30k soccer balls.
    by the end few day's I was just trying to find players online to buy things for.
    I am pretty tired of you people acting like this game is too hard. Have you tried.. I dunno. Doing better?
    Misty cake is not hard. It's a huge payout map.
    recently added to event reward list for 2 active events and now gone.
    What a joke.
    I use public wiki guide and have no issues.

    By the time I started to popularize the map and talk to people I had found many players find it "difficult".
    This is why I wrote my own guide for it.
    You can find all of the details for that here is my Easter guide.

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

    Go on down to Misty cake.
    Details the time cost, unit cost, payouts, the recent addition to PFB, and goes so far as to show multiple Tremble tech variants and details how to eliminate boss camps.
    I do have an alternate guide which details tremble more, and before the clients were all torn apart. My next guide intention was to bring the two together and highlight Misty cake on it's own as a release just before this event drops.
    Linking to that guide from my soccer event guide.
    Now.
    Why?

    I taught you all in Easter how to run the map.
    I taught you it has the highest reward.
    I told you I would help you learn how to run it.
    But you complained the map away because it is too hard.
    You could have learned, you could have just not run it. But you stole it from me and why?

    You know. I've been playing this game on my tablet. egg.inc.
    When I join a co-op contract, I join a team and we work towards a goal with our combined incomes.
    You just make profit and add it to the pile.
    Those of you who recognize my screenname in the game will not be surprised to hear.
    When I join a co-op, I jump up to being the top producer.
    I can see the best profits, I am trained to find the highest efficiency route.
    I am going to make the best profit per time spent because I know how to analyze every detail from every angle.
    It's not coincidence that I jump to the top in economic games.
    I just see what most don't. I don't think this makes me exceptional so much as I think it reveals how dull the average are.
    That saddens me.
    Do better.
    Listen to good advice when it's given.

    Stop complaining the game into the ground without knowing what you are doing.

    This is a Live service game.
    I really don't think many players even appreciate that distinction.
    These events exist around the calendar not the game state.
    Anniversary event does not get pushed just because you whiners broke the game with unity client.
    Halloween is coming.
    Christmas is coming.

    I still have to write guides for these events.
    I still have to detail how to best use pumpkin patches for maximum output.
    But then what. You guy's won't read it anyway and you will just complain about something else til they break it.
    Why am I bothering again?
    I just could not resist replying to someone as pompous as this. I have never read any of your bull**** before and don't intend to start after reading all of this. What dribble to be this into yourself. I must say I feel very sorry for you because with this type of attitude, you must not have any friends in real life. So, since no one is going to read any of your dribble anyways, I suggest you quit wasting time trying to 'help' us since I am sure others actually do want to help instead of just getting praise. In your spare time you have since you aren't going to be writing the guides, maybe you could take some classes or read some books on how to get along with other people.

    Still a few days left to use the shop. The community goal is failed, though. Wait and see how that is addressed. Clearly the goal was not reasonable.

    Even if the goal was reasonable, the game play is not. Due to the gameplay, explorers and generals sending were greatly affected decreasing the ability for players to reach the community goals.

    Community Goal 2 - Update


    Dear Settlers,

    During this Event, you made the impossible possible and displayed the perfect example of how a community can come together to achieve even the most challenging of goals.
    The second week's target was, under the present conditions, perhaps aimed a little bit high - but taking into consideration the number of Balloons you all still have in the game, we are sure that this goal was doable under normal conditions; you made it up to an amazing 80% of the goal!

    To reward the efforts you made to make this event a happy celebration, we decided to hand out the full "Community Goal 2" Reward to all players who were active during this event!

    We also want to inform you that the Adventure Bookbinder was noted as "Can be obtained once during this event". However, this was a remnant of the Text of 2020 and he did not make it into the Event of 2021. Instead, you got one of the lovely Balloon markets for your Island!

    overall i'm happy with the list of loot i got... i love that i got a scout, and a few new specialists, as focus said a ton of buffs and prem coins. even a pfb. lots of floaters, grout and oil prod. and even just mostly following quests i did 30 million exp. (though i probably lost around 2k mm w/ the gen glitches).

    Thanks, BB. I was expecting this. It is only fair considering the state of the game. I think people made a reasonable effort despite the challenges.
