    Thank you for that great start Mir. I'm all in. Will boost my sunflower stack when I build up the event crop numbers.
    I'm thinking I'll manage 3 harvest per day per field, and given there will be some time lost for building up stock, and work the last day => 5 days. 5x3 =18, so will keep the glade as is for now.

    Good luck!

    ps. I like the fact there are no great must-have prizes in the race or skipping up and down and stressing of greed and wanting everything.

    Thanks for crunching those numbers Mir. I can't say I am especially excited about the prizes but I am in ... I just can't resist events! :p

    I will be using only two fields and probably do three harvests of event crop during the day and something longer overnight - still working on some of those excruciatingly demanding FSQs! o_O
    I will decide when I see how the drop rate is which Fuel Cans I will use. :music:
    Good luck all! ;)

    The CR offered a +2 on sunflowers, pair that with a spring boutonnière and possible a cac and you'll be swimming in sunflowers. It's not the most used crop, but it it's still useful.

    I'm not particularly good at making best use of CRs that are that targeted. Too many CRs to segregate those I need at any one time! 8)

    Thanks for crunching the numbers Mir! Race 2 needs 68 steps to be completed requiring 11 Deluxe biofuel and 2 biofuel. Sorry if I am mistaken:p

    You might want to double check that calculation :p
    Me neither, I might skip this event. +2 on sunflowers seems nice, but it is only for 1.5 hours, that's too little in my opinion for such a short crop. I would have liked it if I could use paradise garland, spring boutonniere, the +2 and grow sunflowers for a whole day. Don't think it is worth the hassle for only 1.5 hours.
    You are not mistaken, but some of the numbers for race 2 look like typos, so I went with the numbers from the DE FAQ.

    Such a short bonus on those flowers; every 3 days.. and the prizes are good-ish, but I think I may pass on this..the holidays are approaching and I've a lot of work outside of this. I'm managing 175 cloud rows so far and need a 'great chase' type of thing spur me on.
    Good luck to everyone who opts for this event.

    Three days of field harvesting and only two times that sunflower boost possible. Worth next to nothing for such a fast crop and the trouble to use it exactly the right moment. I think we earn much too small parts of EP and TEP on harvesting, instead it is the CRs that are the real helpers so the flower-EP harvest boost in CR is also worth next to nothing :(
    My first thought about CR EP is MEDIUM but I think I will give it a chance because you only have to harvest it once every 3 days, should mean rel. short period of inactivity compared to shorter.

    The outcome totally depends on in which mood the programmers are .... a bad drop rate can destroy every event ...........

    Thank you Mir for getting the race started. :) I'm in, and also very happy there is no lane changing needed. They even stated in the FAQ that the race is fixed, (your opponent cannot beat you.). Can not loose! :music: Great fun and best of luck everyone! Don't forget your goggles and hat, and Hot Chocolate waiting for you at the finish line!! :p

    Thanks Mir for the start and overall numbers!

    To me the givers, the CR nor the many small prizes along the way to the finish seem to outweight the time and effort required. Seriously thinking about setting an easy and relaxed personal goal for this event: gain as many drops as possible and wait for conversion.

    Additional info for those who wish to take on the snow race challenge:

    Event Plant - 6:00 hr = 240 EP

    Compared to regular main land crops:
    Pumpkin - 5:58 hr = 36 EP
    Fern - 6:00 hr = 240 EP

    6:00 hr with nothing applied
    4:48 hr with water applied
    4:19 hr with water and manure applied

    Good luck to all, have fun: keep smiling!

    Overall, the prizes and CR seem a little 'blah' and with nothing new to win, I'll pass on this one.

    Good luck to all.

    with water and manure applied the time should be 4:19 hr.
    Personally, only applicable for building up the starter seeds.
    After that I settle with water.

    I agree that the prizes aren't special, but.......
