    I think this event has messed up the times we are supposed to get daily log in rewards. I have logged in every day this week and i havent seen a single reward since the event began. Is this a bug?
    US Daylight Saving Time change kicked in.  Daily rewards now an hour later, until Germany's kicks in Sunday after next, I think.

    I am reading some of the posts, but I would like to say that I like the St. Patrick's Day pranks.  Really, they don't hurt anything because I find the leprechaun man.  I really like the gift given because usually there double a crop or a significant increase in production.  I don't ever prank someone else, though.  Being able to 'stop' the prank makes it nice.  Perhaps the "Grinch" could do something similar?
    They hurt a lot if you are doing time sensitive events or missions and can not find the leprechaun. It has cost me a 2 missions and some gold to make up for lost time on weekly event. All because there is no way to opt out of the pranks. Took me an hour one day to find him as he is green and tiny and blends right in the backdrop.

    So maybe it is not hurting you and that is wonderful but it is hurting other.

    EDIT: I would opt out of Lepre, not the whole event. The event is still nicely playable, although nothing ground breaking.
    I am with you I would opt of as well. Only I would opt out of the whole event as the deco and I tend to collect decos is nothing grate and seeing the happiness all depends on rank I am really not interest.

  • Anybody get to # 49, the 8,000 hats and then have it disappear on the decoration prize?   I got to #49, it showed I won the prize, I checked on the decoration and it reflected so on the decoration, but then it disappeared and shows as if I did not win the 8,000 hats now.

  • It took a lot of time running wildflowers, corn, alfalfa, and more special event seeds than I would have liked but I am almost to a deco valued at 50 points.  I don't think my fields have ever seen this much action.
    I already finished getting all the prizes a couple of days ago so I am just going for higher value on deco now.
    Considering this is a deco which should be a keeper due to it being tied in with coop village happiness I think the end value is to low.

    The morning prank is the worst because there is so much to be done who wants to spend time hunting down the elusive fellow.  And don't get me started on the sparkle treat.  Anyone notice he has a tendency to put them on the most inane items? I have nine fields, the lowest one is a level 2 and guess which once got sparkled?
    Anyway,  I just try to check at 5 hours to see what has been pranked so I can take care of it before it becomes a problem.

    Overall,  I don't dislike the event for what it is as much as I dislike feeling I needed to work really hard in order to get a deco I would want to use and to have has many village points added to it as possible.
     I am beginning to feel that being part of a co-op is more work than I want to be involved in.   2 Champs a month and events like these demand to much of my time.

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I could not see it: at what happiness value does the stage 4 change to stage 5? Thank you.

    Decided to figure out which seed was the best for Hats/Clovers, came up with the following averages per hour (based on CBF's spreadsheet on how often each amount drops per seed, 50%/50%, 80%/20%, etc).  For instance, Corn has an average drop of 3 hats/clovers per harvest (2 or 4, both with a 50% drop chance), 12 harvests in 1 hour, (3x12=36 per hour, per field).

    This will be an hourly average, and assumes you are there to start the next production immediately - that is, 30 harvests of Wildflowers PER HOUR (every 2 minutes). 

    (Plus I love number crunching) :)

    OMG, am I glad you love number crunching, Southern! THANKS for the info, much appreciated!! :+1:

    I love the event, the rewards, the deco! I just feel more people would push harder if more people could win the appearance. Just 10 feels a bit weak, and is discouraging to many players. Great job on all other aspects of the event, the leprechaun pranks are fun (oh, on that note, my last "treat" landed on my nursery, giving me no extra production at all... complete dud. Please try to remove that production building from possible treat recipients)

    I agree.  Skins should be available to more than the top ten.  For a nanosecond, I came within shouting distance, but no matter how much effort I put into it, I realized I wasn't going to make it, so now I'm back to running my farm as usual.

    Still, the event is a nice change of pace -- if they would eliminate back-to-back pranks and adjust the win levels for the skins, it would be stellar.

    I have got to be the worst chest picker, lol.  Almost every time I get prank, after prank, after prank, (normally 3, sometimes 4), then finally get a treat.  I have to admit I was super excited when the treat landed on the Flower Shop with a full batch of honey cream ready to harvest...quick double of that production was a very nice treat.  :)

    Many thanks to farmerjohn 22 for this creation  :)

    I had 6 pranks back to back at one point.  That honey cream production, though, gotta say, you did good!

    @artful (US1)  Yes indeed, put an end to my whining about prank after prank.  Bring on the pranks if the end result is so rewarding!   ;)

    I agree.  I am about the same place you are and I play a lot of hours.  Very tough for those who can't play all day.

    The flash sales are awesome. Especially the 1 dollar deals giving special feeds, humus, seeds and fertilizer.
  • A New update is coming on Flower Farm?  I just noticed.
    Might be new  ship market?

    I log in today, at least 12 hours since my last prank, and before harvesting I check for prank as always. Arrow still greyed out :/ So I start harvesting and keep checking for prank, never got one. After 12 hours, shouldn't I have one? I thought they were every 5 hours or so?
  • CrazyBigfarm55 (US1)CrazyBigfarm55 (US1) US1 Posts: 1,226
    My pranks have been right on time, every 5 hours @Sukiyaki (US1) . The only thing I can think of is maybe you have a leprechaun on one of your farms.
