    I have crunched the numbers for the total event requirements:

    26,780 Welsh Onions (4,464 Daily)
    1,364 Winter Chestnuts (227 Daily)
    Lots of other items from our barns required too, eyes too boggled to add them up. :wuerg:
    We only need to do 120 Tasks to get the CR and EP items. :)

    Please correct me if I have miscalculated! And please also tell me if I have missed any "must have WOW prizes". :D

    This is the event that I will be skipping. Need a rest, need to put out all the other secret stables and trees that have accumulated and generally get my Barn into a better position for the next event that takes my fancy. :music:

    I am really not impressed at all by the prizes, though that doesn't usually bother me, but I would need to empty my Glade and I don't really think it is worth it. Even the CR is "mwah"! -.- Like I would even align harvesting my CR to harvesting Donkeys and Ostriches! :sleepy:

    Good luck all those who go for it. ;)

    I will do it,the reason is the giver.
    I like those prizes, so when I got those giver,
    I will first use up all those charges before put them on CR.
    As the CR buff only act on ostrich and donkey.
    yes those 500X TEP & EP gain look attractive, But I will wait till I got all those prizes first


    P.S. forget to say, thank illy to calculate the nos.

    You nearly had me then, Dnin! Had to go back and check ... nearly fell for the PF giver but for 20 PF and 5 (shock horror!) BB! -.-
    Nope, my critters are going out and protesting in the fields! :p

    I have done all events up till now, I must take a break or I won't have anything left in my Barn but secret stables and seedlings! xD

    Thanks Illy for the start and overall numbers. As I skipped the Circus I *might* do this one, just not sure yet.

    I did a quick calc for 60 tasks on each side. It'll require:

    Left side = 4990 event crop + 295 event drop
    Right side = 6440 event crop + 235 event drop
    28 stew = 7280 event crop + 616 event drop
    Totals = 18710 event crop + 1146 event drop

    Plus a small bunch of small donations from the barn.

    If doing 148 tasks the givers can be won twice (from main progress and task reward).

    I'm going to prepare for the Harvest Hoedown, if there is one. Then again, if not, I will prepare for when there is one! :p
    Might make a few CCs on selling manure cos all my fields will be filled with animals and pens. :music:

    Thank you Illy again, your calculator must be overheating with all the events recently that needed crunching

    I will start and see where I get too, the givers even though have limited charges are better in my 'pocket' :p

    One gripe, how many of newer farmers have hit singles. Im at 99 and dont have them. So many will get stuck at level 16 on both sides when carrots are at level 54:mad::mad:. Lets see if this gets changed so more farmers can have a chance of completing more levels

    thanks illy for the numbers and the thread.

    Skipping this event seems to be a luxury ! [​IMG] Will I be able to afford it ?
    I haven't removed the butterflies & chameleons from the field. Should I do the event. I very much want to skip and take a break. But my ECOD is saying look at the cloudrow. 15% reduction time for donkey & ostrich pens & 500 x EPS & TEPs. By the time i finish typing this post, I have come to a conclusion. Do the event. First I made decision that I will skip this event & give myself a break. But when I started typing this post I went into a dilemma. Now DO IT. ECOD commands me. I am doing it. But will keep my eyes open for any event that is not worth doing & will skip it in near future. :p

    I think I'm going to sit this one out, too. I have a huge craft show on Saturday in Cut Bank and I need to prepare, plus I'll lose that whole day... I'm with Illy - I think I will take this next couple days to rebuild barn stocks of animals and longer timed plants.

    I only harvest the CR once a day and that's before my first harvest. BUt I'm not sure I have the time, or the energy. Life isn't on farmerama's side, and I'm crashing down like a lead balloon. Sadly I'm going to sit on the fence for this one as well.

    Good luck to us all, and may the drop rat be with those that is going for it

    Thank you Illy, Sahra, Hababala and Joan for the effort and help.
