    I am probably a bit premature but on first sight, the requirements don't seem too bad. Of course, we never know how the drops will fall but that's all part of the challenge. :)

    The prizes are good: lots of Supergrow and Suzi's supergrow, a bit of PF and Pink Jelly (methinks there is a breeding event around the corner!) and NO Turbo Mulch - wahoo! Mystery Stables and Party Spins are always welcome. A big plus: Harvest Helper Coupons! :inlove:

    Looking good BP - and glad that those Stars are back to stay. :D

    As Walnuts are used in many feeds, I've had to buy from the market (at inflated prices) to have enough for this event. I also had to buy Mirabelle Plums as there is no way with just the one tree I paid BBs for, that I was going to grow what I needed. Not thrilled about this requirement.

    Crops can easily be grown during the event time and with the FAQ being released early, we do have the opportunity to prepare. I, too, had to purchase walnuts since feed and FHOs keep mine lower than the event requirement. The Mirabelle plum requirement also seems excessive since it is a rare tree. Perhaps, a wider variety of fruits could have been requested in lower amounts. It could be my faulty memory, but I cannot recall having to ever donate over a thousand fruits before and definitely not just one kind. The prizes of PF and wonder stables are definitely very attractive for me. The harvester coupons are better than immediate rewards but the 3 hour coupon has its limits. I would prefer to see possibly 3 hour coupons in Silver (or maybe 1 hr), 12 hour coupon for Gold and 24 hour coupon for Diamond. The total hours given in this event is much less than when we are given immediate rewards.

    I am happy with prizes, especially with Mystery Stables, Party Spins and Harvester coupons:D
    I agree that the quantity of fruit trees we have to donate is excessive, but somewhere, somehow the game has to be challenging as well. Having said that, I know that lot's of people are not happy :cry:about it, but hey, it's only one of the many events we can participate in...there is always the next one:)

    I am not surprised that the coupons add up to less than the immediate harvester rewards. I would rather have the coupons even if they are of less time. I too though, would like to see 3 one hour coupons instead of 1 three hour coupon. 3 hours is just too short to be of much use other than a 15 minute stint of re-arranging the farm.

    The Mirabelle Plum requirements are excessive for a rare tree that is hard to come by. At least the Walnut requirement is in the last step and can be left out of one's working of the event. The Mirabelle Plum requirement is such that at least the silver part of the step must be done to get the best rewards. (The helper coupons, the 1x2 Hopscotch (all 480 needed), the cloud row and the stables, if desired.)

    I think the amount of Friendship Cakes is excessive for a Medium level event, in total 180 are required. That equates to 1800 Yellow Roses, 360 Friendship Potions, 2700 Wheat and 3600 Blackberries! That's a mini event on it's own!

    I love the event, probably because I have all the requirements needed and have already made over 3 million cc's on rabbits and Mirabelle plums.
    Only the drop rate would be of concern to me, though I already have enough potions to have 113 friendship cakes in production. :) So the quest gets a big thumbs up from me. xD
    Good luck everyone.

    i am enjoying this event and have finished the roses tonight so will then grow longer crops to get enough potions to finish. I did skip the 2nd and 3rd level of task 1 but i may decide to complete it for the party spins later on. iIts fun to mix things in the mill for events and i also like the yellow roses and would like to see them remain in the game as a high level crop as currently there are no new crops when you reach level 100+ and we need some. the prizes are good but would like to see recipes back in the awards, like we had some time ago, the existing recipes are getting a bit boring now. Last two events have been unfinished for me due to bad fishing skills and locking out of the game so feel more in control of this event!

    This , IMHO, is a crucial factor , especially with 1440 walnuts !!! and a whole bunch of mirabelle plums needed...
    and non event crops...

    Yes ! I agree ! A mini event in an event !!!! Well said burnybum !!!

    Also the use of drops in a mill product, means nervous times, especially if your drops are lower than expected - I am only getting 6 per field of event crop.....
    But it is early days and I am hopeful (but not confident) of enough drops, so tentative thumbs up to a complex but do-able event.


    Footnote: I am in 48hour event mode - that last quick one has got me unnecessarily nervous about drops !

    :DI am really enjoying this event:) I have had to buy the Mirabelle plums and a few rabbits, but all and all a great event. My drops have been pretty good so not too worried. I have been putting longer crops over night to bump them up, so glad we have a longer time to finish.:D

    I agree it was great to have the FAQ released early, but I do think 1440 walnuts is a little steep (even though I had it in stock), for once there was a sensible quantity of event crop, which has allowed normal farming to resume and drops seem good. I like that I can choose which mill to use and the prizes are good. I wish we could keep the yellow roses in game, it's been ages since we were allowed to do this (the last being the red poppy I believe).

    Received all Draco stalls and got the Turtle - hooray!

    A lot of people are complaining about quantities of items; but you are able to buy them in the Market if you don't have enough in stock or can't grow them.

    The problem I have with the large quantity of some crops (Mirabelle Plums) is that we have some permanent quests that need them and we just finished a timed event that required a lot of them -- when do we get a chance to grow more and stock up? The last event the price for them was a lot higher.

    This also happened before when Pomegranates were introduced -- every event/quest needed a lot of pomegranates.

    I should have waited patiently. Since I only have one farm and am at level 90 I went ahead and used 600 supergrow on the comfort fields and then purchased the 150 barnbucks for was it? for 150 each of the potions. I ended up getting like four of them. No matter what stall I put out seemed to not reap potions fast enough.
    Last night before closing the game down, I set the mill to make the last cakes needed and finished the event when I started farming this morning.
    Wouldn't you know it...I have now 400 extra potions! So I should have saved my 600 barnbucks! hehehe
    ohhh well live and learn! I still had fun!
    Nice challenge and I appreciate the stars!!!!

    On the whole the event was designed well and gave sufficient time for most to participate without major stress to real life. The total event crop number was not ridiculously high and could be obtained without an outpouring of buffs. The prizes were nice: thank you for harvester coupons and for omitting mulch as a prize!
    Cons: The mirabelle plum requirement was very high for a rare tree. The cloud row should have been awarded in the last level.

    I enjoyed this event very much.

    I really enjoyed this event. I did have to buy some Mirabella plums but I didn't find that to be a drawback. I actually thought it was kind of good for the players who had a lot of stocks to be able to sell some of them for good prices. I liked that we could use both mills for the cake and the prizes were really good. Thank you for including newer stables as prizes. The giver items are all really cute and the cloud row is great, oh and the flowers were really pretty can we keep them please?

    A nice easy event. Plenty of time to complete it. I like being able to use the island mill during events. As usual the graphics with the EP givers are just great.


    Please, please, pretty please may we keep the Yellow Roses. They are so pretty and it would be nice to have a new crop to grow.

    Good one!

    Very reasonable event crop requirements, more than enough time to work out proper strategy for getting drops, cute graphics, attractive rewards - what's not to love? :)

    True, drop demand seems a bit steep... then again, we've got full 6 days to meet it, which is entirely possible (says me, who still needs about 150 friendship potions and is farming hard to get them :p, but hey, I've been away for the weekend). That makes the event challenging.

    I mostly enjoy the ordinary crop and fruit requirement, even though I'll need to buy quite a lot walnuts at the market. But that's just it - if you don't have it in the barn, you can buy it, and maybe earn some CCs by selling other stuff at the same time. Adds some colour to the game.

    Thank you!

    Great event, good prizes not stressful at all. A big thumbs up all around. :D

    I liked being able to use both mills and also grow the crops on all fields. While I did have to buy a substantial amount of the plums and also some walnuts I was also able to sell rabbits to cover those costs. Loved the EP givers as they are very cute and the flowers were really beautiful. I would also love to keep them around to spruce up the place a bit. ;)

    tip on how to make some last minute drops , if you are done with planting everything else, plant the highest crop that will still fit the remaining time, i'm on my second round of crop square and the drop rate increased 50-75 %, thus being able to actually finish this event ( i was going crazy because i had everything i needed 3 days ago , except for those friendship potions )
