    In my oppinion there's too little reward in completing adventures as a way of collecting footballs. There's a huge discrepancy in troops and time invested compared to the amount of footballs you get from an adventure, and generally you get too few for actually playing the game.

    The 1,000 collectible achievement was not achievable for too many.
    The Snack stand I like so voted for it but really it is not that useful. Maybe for Red Flying Settlers . I did not get the second one.
    Love the Stone Cold Geo
    Too many collectibles that we just do not need at all. (Helmets, Shoulder pads for example)

    Overall I liked the Event.
    I would like to see a regular summer event.

    Just echoing some of the previous comments.

    Snack Stand I do like but think it needs a tweek to make it a bit more usable, maybe a buff for for it or include it in a zone buff.

    The 1000 collecatble ach was only just doable and this was with me playing at times I would not normally ie in work but meant having to time my breaks around the game that also impacted on my work so if you have a normal day job it was too much. If you work from home or can sit on the game all day then it helped.

    I think the event overall was too expensive, unless you could knock out adv after adv after adv there was no way to get enough footballs to get everything. I ended up trading allot of stuff and putting myself backwards in the game to get enough balls for what Id id get and even then it cost me a few sets of gems too. And that was with running premium so without that I prob would have been lucky to get the geo and the exp.

    Never going to please all of the people all of the time and a big thank you for running the event and trying but still lessons to be learnt. Time to step back restock and get ready for haloween

    and just to reiterate the apparent result of the vote relating to the explorer football finds - that was terrible considering the amount of players who also historically have invested books for the return of decent event drops..

    Over all enjoyed the event - many thanks

    Much as it was a fair drag endlessly sending out explorers on short searches I thought that the event overall was a little better than usual as it was a challenge to get the footballs I wanted rather than blowing the total away 2/3 of the way thru.

    It does seem a little ludicrous that only about 1/2 of the collectibles could be collected with explorers, what to do with thousands of helmets, pads, grass, grease etc.

    I would like to see some end of event stats produced, its interesting to follow how we are doing up to the point of an achievement but then you totally lose track once the achievement has been done. Maybe some sort of prize for 1st, 2nd, 3rd on total collectibles picked up, or footballs from adventures or whatever else you can dream up.

    Stone cold geo is excellent.

    Jury still out on the usefulness of the Snack Stand.

    Would like to see a multiplayer adventure (in the way BK used to be used) give a significant advantage to promote activity between players.

    I thought the daily event quests were challenging and interesting, more than with previous events, and it was nice to have an event between Easter and Halloween so thank you for coming up with this.

    The stone-cold geos are great of course. I dare anyone to say they aren't pleased with them.

    However there was a huge unbalance between the amount of materials from explorers/adventures and the footballs return. There was no fun in there and I even thought that was cruel from BB to have deliberately opted for such poor drop rates.
    If one is already a hardened player then this was doable, but lower levels have suffered during this event and their motivation to keep playing to also get the same benefits as others have in the past, have probably been hurt badly. I fear BB might have shot themselves in the foot here...
    As for the snack stand, either the amount of resources required for a single snack have a 0 too many, or the production time (even with 2 stands) is way too long to make it appealing. So good thinking but poor practicality.

    Lastly, although we were encouraged to do some adventures (even tasked to in some daily event quests), once again there's been no promotion of cooperative adventures whilst this would have been the perfect opportunity. If I know that, BB know that too.

    Overall I am satisfied with the event, as I got what I wanted out of it, but yet it leaves a bitter taste.

    This was the 1st event i actually didnt enjoy.

    What i really liked:
    - Host quest chain - reasonably challenging, decent rewarding in exp, way more interesting than typical "buy some micro amount of good u already full of and u dont need anyway"
    - Stone Geologist - very useful,. not just on granite. On lower levels bigger marble deopsits will also make a diffrence.
    - Lucky Explorer - always nice to have one, but...

    Unfortunately...
    Im aroud for quite a long time, nad my impressions from previous events was that they are getting easier and easier (for me), mostly cos of growing army of my explorers. In most cases I had everything + some grout, once or twice I had to buy some pumpkins/presents/eggs/whatever to achieve that. this is why I get the idea of tweaking it a bit. But the keyword here is "a bit". Suddenly, with all those nerfs to adventure and exporer goods income, I ended up, playing everyday, actively, but getting less than half the balls i would need for all main buildings and specialists. Days were passing, exploreres and adventures just kept giving some single balls and I very quickly realized I wont make it. Instead of planning my event strategy, this summer I was choosing, one after another, which event reward to skip. One of the first ones to shot was main reward - snack stand.

    When u play adventures and get next to nothing from it, u lose fun from playing them (and its already hard to have fun from adventures themself, we all know that ). When u collect explorers for years, u do it for a reason. To put yourself in better position, including position during events. I understand u need to adjust "difficulty" for well-developed, rich and experienced players. But doing so by nerfing what we collected for years, is just wrong.

    If I collect explorers for years, and now having small army of them, I get less, than when i had 5 or 6, then I kinda lose the point of collecting them.

    Short summary: Events needs to be challenging. But they also need to remain... well.... events - special times with special "candies". After this one im frustrated. And a bit robbed, because in attempt to adjust difficulty level for me, u robbed me of things I worked hard for - also during previous events. Thats wrong way to go.

    I liked the large amount of xp from the quest chain, I levelled up sooner than I'd hoped because of that. For this reason, I'm less bothered than some about the dearth of footballs. I seldom manage to get all the items I want from the event store, so I'm not too put out that I only got a couple of things.
    I am not able to play more than once every day, so had no chance with picking up 1000 collectibles. I'm not that perturbed about it, as I can see the point in giving more frequent players an advantage.
    Snack stand is slow, esp when some explorers bring home those buffs + treasure.
    I would like to see adventures with loot spots being more rewarding, it is a friendlier way to play.
