    I'm interested in that too, since there appear to be different interpretations of the dev diary.

    pumpkin fields will still produce pumpkins after phase 1 up until phase2 when all remaining pumpkins in the fields will be converted to coins at a rate of 0.5 coins per pumpkin, along with all other pumpkins you have in explorer mails, trade deal, stores
    When it comes to Gene pools and shallow ends they can be found at the bar drinking pina colada's

    Not if you read all the diary. And where in dev diary does it say exactly what you have typed?

    This is a player assumption, hence the request for a yes they will still produce during phase 2, or a no they will not, from a BB.

    We need to know in order to determine how many refills to gather.

    Yes yes... can somene clarify this please?

    I'm also confused as if the pumpkin fields will still give pumpkins after the deactivation phase.

    Deactivation section of Dev Diary states that one of the things that will take place "AFTER THE EVENT DEACTIVATION" is that "Pumpkins remaining on each field...will be converted to coins", so the cemetaries will not disappear until full deactivation.

    The Removal Phase section also states that: "You can use the Banshee's Scream buff in order to get more Pumpkins before the Removal phase finishes.", so the fields must continue producing through the removal phase in order for this to be the case.

    I thought that too Ozzy, till I read it carefully.

    To begin with the fields are part of the core mechanisms of the event and the first line of the description of the end of phase 1 (Removal phase) states:

    •The core mechanisms of the event will be turned off.

    Then we have as 7th item on description of end of Phase 1:

    •You can use the Banshee's Scream buff in order to get more Pumpkins before the Removal phase finishes. The buff effect will end and you won't be able to use such buffs anymore after the event deactivation.

    This says to me that any buffs used which over-run the end of Phase 1/Removal phase, will continue to work till the run out and that is the last they can be used. The last part of that bullet ''and you won't be able to use such buffs anymore after the event deactivation.'' muddies the waters.

    So again to ask please can a BB give a yes or no answer, will the pumpkin fields continue to give out pumpkins after the end of Phase 1/Removal phase, until the end of Phase 2/Deactivation phase?

    It would be really nice to get a formal answer by BB, so that we can stop guessing and analyzing the dev diary...

    If Pumpkin production is due to stop at the end of Phase I, would BB please confirm that they will end the trading of Refills also. Obviously they will be in the doghouse with players if they allow trade to continue of a defunct product.


    Edit: I think that it would be illogical to stop the production of pumps at the end of phase 1 for the above reason and also because of the adventure loot drops which will take place right up until the end of phase 1.

    BB have now confirmed on Global 1 that the fields will produce until the final removal of the event the 14th November.

    Yes, did take some chasing but thanks to BB_Acadmas2 for getting us an answer:

    [10:14] BB_Acadma2: at the removal phase on Nov. 9th the fields will still yield pumpkins but on the 14th they will stop producing pumpkins
