    179 is an excellent value for a 5 by 5 sized decoration either way so i'm satisified with this event  reward :D 
    I totally agree!  But tell me I've got the highest possible and with that confirmation, I can slow down, do one fireworks session a day, (the one when the new sign comes up), and feel good about the event overall, and what I was able to accomplish.

    Many thanks to farmerjohn 22 for this creation  :)

    Yeah have to agree, i'm a bit disappointed the max happiness value wasn't announced yet because now there's that confusion on whether or not to continue using special seeds and seaweed or to save them for next years event. Hopefully one of the mods answers the question but with only a few days left it will get to a point where the answer is irrelevant. 180 would be a nice number, a nice round number to end the event lol

    Welcome to bad luck group. :) That's where I have been so far. :)
  • Will there be extra time added to the event for the time we lost for maintanence? Or extra fireworks because we missed the one from 15.15?

    You can find your answer partly here in this thread @ellen3131 (NL1):

    And secondly: did you miss the fireworks of 15.15 CET? Such a pity - everything worked fine after maybe 10-15 minutes of server's down time, so no one of our coop missed the fireworks. Hope you'll do better next time (19.15 CET)!  :)

    Real Bummer @ellen3131 (NL1) - I think you'd better write Support! And maybe it's an idea to post about this in the next thread, too? There you can find some tips also ....

  • On the Chinese New Year; does anyone else have the problem with the all over total being stuck for days. Mine has been stuck on 56 and 12( for the locked section) for at least 5 days now. I have all the chips for the entire decoration plus both to make the size to be 5x5. I am working on collecting the zodiac chips for more happiness. I have all but 2 zodiac flags, and 4 fancy flags. I would think my total amount would be higher than 56. Wondering if this will effect anything in the end.

    Are you talking about the daily mission?  If so, when you complete it, it goes away until the next day.

    @WascallyWabbit   Wascally, will you do me and a large number of other players a favor and ask what the parameters are for the bonus happiness?  Whereas my coop started out gung ho, now sitting and collecting for days on end with no movement from the bonus happiness at 34 is discouraging and has turned to frustration.  Folks need to know the goal so they can work towards it, not try and run blind with no progress.  Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Wascally, can we expect an answer to this soon ?

  • Hi all, 
    Has anyone experienced that while collecting tiles that the numbers do not go down? I was so close to getting the Fancy rabbit and the fancy pig flag and the numbers never went down and in the end I never received the flag even though I should have made the numbers!? I believe the GG should give me the flags since I had worked so hard to get them.

    The other question is: is it me or to get the dragon and snake tiles are rare. I play this game hours on end, even though I should be working...., and collecting the snake and dragon has been less than the other tiles. Most of my other tiles have more than 100% and the dragon and snake I am just barely half way there? 

    Any other suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Chinesedragon
  • artful (US1)artful (US1) US1 Posts: 6,556
    snakes and dragons are definitely the fewest.  I went pretty quickly through the others signs, but I'm stuck now on these last two, so probably won't finish.

    He did, instead of posting here it was in the Mods News Bulletin:

    CNY Event Max Possible Bonus Happiness
    Several of you have asked about this and it is the same calculation as last year:

    10 HP + (HP from each zodiac animal + 25% of that value)
    Example: 10 + 135 + (25% of 135) = 178.75 = 179

    @nola1 (INT1) We posted the calculation for the max possible happiness for your player level in a recent Bulletin but here it is again in case you missed it:

    10 HP + (HP from each zodiac animal + 25% of that value)
    Example: 10 + 135 + (25% of 135) = 178.75 = 179

    So if you are on bonus 34, you have got the max & just have the daily rewards to collect - Congrats! :)

    This question has been answered already - just try to read the Mod's News Bulletin in time! Even CrazyBigFarm already processed all calculations per level in the website!

    Overall, I feel that an event should be able to be completed without gold or a year's supply of sunflowers and seaweed.  And it seems like there is almost no one who is going to complete this event without such aids.  Last year, this was not true.  I knew of quite a few farms who finished it with no such aids last year.  Hopefully next year, they will revert to last year's version.
    Let me tell you how it was for me...
    I had a pretty strong farm last year, but didn't manage to collect enough pigs and dogs, so I didn't finish the event. Biggest reason for not finishing it was that last year we had no information about when the fireworks will appear, so I kept collecting at the wrong times. If there was no info about fireworks, I wouldn't be able to finish it this year either, although my farm is at least three times stronger than last year.

    I did use some gold for snake boosters and some production skipping (around 3000 overall), but it was because I wasn't certain, if I'll manage to catch enough fireworks and I wanted to be sure that all my effort doesn't go in vain. I have also used some seaweed fertilizer and humus together with sunflower seeds, but all of those that I used, I got from mystery boxes we were able to earn from daily tasks, so nothing extra was spent. I'm sure that I could have finished event without using that gold, so in the end, it wasn't impossible to complete it without using gold. I got my deco to 178 happiness two days before event was about to end.

    I'm not saying it wasn't hard. This event is way too hard for some casual gameplay. Then, it's not that hard, that you have to get up in the middle of the night to catch the fireworks. Catching two or three fireworks per day is enough to complete the event, but it demands good planning, so you have most of the things ready, when you go for fireworks bonus.

    I understand your disappointment, cause I was in the same shoes last year, when I didn't finish it. I was also feeling bad, because I tried hard and then I ended with (for me) useless deco.

    Although, as you say, luck has nothing to do with this event, to you and all the others that won't manage to finish it, I wish best of luck on the next occasion.

    P.S.
    I'm attaching an image of my farm, so you can see what was I working with, cause after all, it's very important how well built is your farm.

    Alrighty, the additional hours just began and as I thought, we do not get Day 1 back to complete.  I was told to write a support ticket since we only received 6 hours.  Though time is added at the end, we aren't able to go back to Day 1 and complete the tasks in order to earn the Pagoda deco.  Hopefully GGS will compensate us for each of the rewards we would have earned had we been able to have the full 24 hours, plus the deco.  

    I urge each of you who were unable to complete Day 1 due to the time issue on the US server to get a support ticket sent asap.

    So we get no deco?  15 days wasted.   :(

    I totally enjoyed CNY again this year.  I would agree with Gizmo, if there were any changes, they would be good.


    I finished with over 2 days to spare including the 34 bonus HP and so did my wife and neither of us use gold on this event.
