One more reason

Very seldom do I get to start the FHWE on time, because There is never a pool for Oysters. I am still waiting. Will be at least 5 more hours before the next pools are available. Probably be another event in the growing list I do not do anymore.

    If I'm lucky enough to know ahead of time when the event will start, about 3 days prior, I look for oyster pools and go after them the second they open. Yes, oysters sit at the dock for several days, and I miss out on filling contracts, but at least I can get off to a decent start. Of course now that they've nerfed the event, I'll never finish it.  :)

    I received an email with a link to a calendar that apparently does not feature the FHWE, so I had no warning it was going to occur...  all I am doing now with the events is plodding along for a few or any rewards, but not going out of my way to play any harder to get things done cause well its impossible to do so.

    it sucks with no pools with right kind of fish.

    But as we have the calender to tell which day an event starts - you have to prepare for the event.

    I does that by not collecting shellfish from my boats the last couple of days before the FHWE - and then I can start in time
    That if you're lucky to have any oyster pools couple of days before the event starts, which sometimes does not happen... I really don't like this event where things depend heavily on luck (or having boats idle with certain fish always, as you don't know when will be next time you see that fish)
    I hear you on that. I've actually increased the number of days before the event to wait for those oyster pools If I see one as much as a week prior, that's what I fish. Of course, the new calendar makes it very difficult to know when the event is going to show up. As I don't Google, I have to depend on the grapevine. :(

    Well the regular HWE is something I barely look at.  Though at least with farm crops I know what I have and when.  I do try to line up what he's asking for.... but I almost never actually fill the dial on him.  Don't care.

    The fishing one?  Now that I collect my 10 seaweed just for opening it, and basically I'm done.  I have huge contracts that need hundreds (one needs over 1000 shrimp) and I haven't seen pools of any of that in days.  Only this morning I was able to set ships on a crustation pool and it doesn't have much in it.   

    I just don't care.  That one is high up on my ignore list.   He gets what he gets.  If he gets nothing, so what.  It's a stupid event.  I mean really, your here to "PLAY" a game and all we can do is plop ships down on a pool, that's IF the right kind of pool is even available, and go away for what?  15 or so hours?  Gee what fun.
    See what I do when not playing silly games.

    After 37 hours I finally got FHW started. Had 1 pool with oysters enough for a few hours. Next is Salmon. Guess what not a pool in sight. Just like the rest of the game GGS has managed to turn this event into a Piece of garbage

    I tend to have 2 or 1 shipd only with 1 type of fish - in that way I am prepared for almost everything - and as I get to empty the ships I load it up next with the 2nd or 3rd

  • I haven't had any salmon pools for days and still none, now that the oysters are done I guess I am done too
