Goldfish rescue event over & still goldfish rescued don't show up in our cooperative village pond
Hi Guys... We have been putting lots of Pellets into the Village Pond, but I wonder what it is doing.
The Goldfish that we have in there don't get used again in the Goldfish Events, so why are we still feeding them..?

Thanks Pickle Paws, but if we stop feeding them, the level 2 Pond will still be worth 32 VHPs.. ?

Here is a big suggestion that I hope you will consider. This relates to the Goldfish fishing.You gave us 100 bait (in two sets of 50) in the first 12 hours of the event, as compensation. I think you should give 100 bait to all players at the start of the event every time.Why?You cannot earn many fleas for the first 24 hours.Keep in mind that for the group (coop) to get fish for the Village pond, the event functions like a snowball downhill. You get more points on day 7 than day 1 and so on. Because the fleas cannot be accumulated in advance, the first several days are very weak for all coops.The big coops often get 30-60 fish per running of the event.Some smaller coops; however, really get dinged. They get almost none. They simply can't get the snowball going downhill, quickly enough.If you give 100 bait to all players with the start of each event....yes, the big coop may get 50 instead of 40, but the small coops will have a real shot at collecting fish, which they often cannot do, under the current setup.And, consider making the fleas drop better (perhaps add them to orchards).
This is a very good suggestion. I was really annoyed that my saved up goldfish baits were not there at the start of this event. "Use it or lose it" mentality does not make for an enjoyable game, not even in a mini-game and this game where most products are hoarded is the last place it should appear.
Endless clicking of short time stables each day has led to a miserable 30 odd goldfish rescued, and that includes the 3k beetle prize milled and used.. The amount of effort is not remotely worth it.
It would have been one more goldfish rescued but somehow the code managed to not save one, either in the form of a bait, nor a goldfish rescued. That is some amazing coding effort, so worth mentioning.
Then there is the actual catching of the fish.. Releasing them under the boat where they cannot be caught isn't too clever. Then, what are the odds to catch one? Ten to one? That is a lot of boring wasted casts.
This event needs major work.
