    U only get 4 tree fruit/nuts at each harvest. Wanting us to use 400 Papayas, 400 Guavas and 400 Bananas to make ONE organic mulch is ridiculous. Did u guys forget we need those to make feed with? And how can u get nutmegs, myrrha, chocolate vine pods, desert rose blooms, jackfruit and pitanga fruit? Is that supposed to come from one of the 'special' trees u never get?

    Unbelievable BP.. ur task on making this a fun event fails miserably! I wont be playing this event either.

    I am lucky to have all the trees that are required but still I will not be able to finish this event as being on the special field, where we can't use any harvest booster, the only chance is to be able to harvest around the clock, every 3.5 hours! It's a big pity that BP is not thinking that some of us have a job that is not allowing us to log in at strict hours and so many times a day.
    I am very disappointed about this. :(

    Can't do this one! Yet again it's asking for stuff I don't even have unlocked yet. So much fun to constantly get quests I can't play.

    All good to go with the exception of the event field - no garvest boosters does not level the pkaying field, it penalises those of us that work. It doesn’t envourage me to buy baskets as I have no chance of finishing so why expend much effort? Poor thought BP , not that you listen to our feedback these days.

    Always like the special field events as I don't need to rebuild standard fields. Like the connection with quest which is supposed to help the event. Although this time the need for tree drops spoils the "no-rebuild" feature a bit.

    I'm enjoying this event! It has been awhile since we've had such a long break without event crops to grow on our normal and baha fields. I'm finally making some headway on quests.

    Why can't I use my super grow on my silky moss? All I can use is water and fertilizer. And why does it ask for tree's I haven't got?

    On the special playfield it was always, that only water and manure could be used. Reason for that (I think) is, that this way, all players have the same harvests, whatever their level may be.
    If you don't have the tree, try to get the treefruit on the market ;)

    Back to Feedback topic:
    I kinda like the event, as I take it quite relaxed. No need for supergrow, SSG or any other buffs.
    If I can reach the goals, that's perfect, if not, that's ok too.

    I agree. Fact is this event and a few previous events didn't ask for growing event crops on main or baha. So, Game Team, thumbs up on this and thanks for listening to general player feedback. Keep the event scedule going like this!
    Concerning this event I only wonder about the Support Quest as to meet its requirements within a reasonable timeframe to profit from the rewards (main reward = Anthill Woot Ant giver) ain't worth the effort due to the low drop rate trees do provide. With this "Support Quest" it seems the game team is trying to fool some players sometimes while they know they can't fool all players all the time. IMHO nor the Support Quest nor the Game Team is supportive on this one at all.

    Enough said.

    I must say kudos to the art department and the graphic design team very cute and well done! I like using the "event playing field" do not like only getting 2 crops per harvest on 1x1's!:p I also am not wild about the very low drop rate from the trees and how long you then have to wait to re-harvest again and hope for a better out come. I do like the Quest and the Ant Trail, it is fun, and you do have to "plan"
    what you are going to turn in and where!;):p

    I need the Desert Rose Blossom, the Jackfruit and the Pitanga Fruit for the mill event, then on top of all THAT I need 350 Tamarillo to be able to advance any further in the right side of the anthill. It seems to me if they were trying to be fair they would ask for things that ALL players would have. Not just the players who are a really high level.

    Do you have the trees to use recipe 1 OR recipe 2 instead?

    I tried. there was none for sale. The Tamarillo is what I need the most.

    No, I don't have them either. :( After the first three recipes I did I was out and it takes SOOO long to grow the tree's.

    As always, I enjoy events on the special field. Thank you also for not having something concurrent, so that we could do regular farming for the duration. That is a huge plus. The graphics are adorable, and the concept is good. I do not mind that the event field does not allow for any enhancements; but that being said, having a four hour crop that you can in no way augment, does make it nearly impossible for people who work to grow sufficient quantities. Please consider allowing the use of comfort fields. It makes both daytime and nighttime harvests much more profitable, and might mean the difference between people taking a stab and the event, and giving up in frustration before even trying.

    As for the requirements - the way I see it, the event itself had no barn requirement. If you wanted to get the extras, you had to give up more stuff. I do think the requirements were a little out of line with the rewards, but not hugely so. I like the idea that longer, established players could get more out of this event. But I think it created resentment among players who are not as advanced, so there needs to be a way around that. It is harder and harder to keep any kind of stock in this game; new things are being introduced all the time, but we are given very little opportunity to grow them. I would really like to see nearly all events happen on the event field, perhaps using the other fields for drops. I think that would satisfy nearly everyone in the game - those who like the events could have a pretty constant "something to work on" but we could also work on FSQ and personal goals at the same time. I would think that this could be a great solution for everyone, and would not mean any more work for the game team, and would in fact lessen the amount of time that mods have to spend soothing ruffled feathers.

    I wish the organic mulch was easier to get. It should be a drop item to in my opinion.

    I like this event from the beginning. I see it is a challenge to use the more unusual or advanced trees without a problem for less mature farms. It seems reasonable to have different requirements for an earlier farm for something like organic mulch. I had plenty of choices to make the mulch and had no problems making it. The drops from the trees in baharama were low, but I had a lot of stored suzi grow for trees and finished the quest early. The ant drops were adequate.

    In general I like the quests that allow growth of normal crops to complete the quests. This is true even if I pour that crop into the quest.
