    Just to get 3 wisdoms, on average, i have to do 6 3rd thiefs and 24(!) woodcutters to get the thiefs.

    It's a fulltime job to fulfill the weekly challenge... it's the wrong approach. Provide lots of things people can do and make them choose with their available time, not one large challenge they cannot possible fulfill unless they don't do anything else.

    Have to admire(???) the determination of BB to simply ignore the comments re weekly challenges.

    I'm really annoyed now: I finished 5/6 quests for the weekly challenge, have 3 and a half days left. And I got the following quest: finish 7 prolonged treasure search. I have 3 normal explorers + a lucky from the footy event. They are on searches atm of course, so I could start the prolonged searches in 1 and a half day. Which means that the normal ones wont finish them before the weekly quest expires, and I can do 2 with the lucky one.
    So let's check how much time I would need for this quest to complete, if I knew in advance that I'll get it. Prolonged search = 3 days for normal, 1 day for lucky. Which means that in 3 days I can do 6 with all my explorers, so I need 1 extra day with the lucky: 4 days in total for only this 1 quest (and ofc this is not the only requirement for this quest, I also have to do several Storm recoveries...). And only 4 days, if all my explorers are ready to go when I get this quest. I can't do Artifact searches, nor Expedition searches during this 4 days.
    I'm really annoyed... You should really take into account that some newer players don't have hoards of explorers and other specialists.

    i want to do a weekly challenge, but , "WC epidemic", lev 62, requires 3 x first thief adventure , i have none,i have just done 4 young wood cutter -- no drop of any adventure came, so down to luck again, , your statement stated, WC was not down to luck---"""" !!!!! !!! , , so, why have you , not put the WC adventures, into "buy with map fragments", you got YWC as map fragments, but it is still down to luck in getting all the adventures, for all the WC's,, ..Do not the delvelopers talk to or read or listen, to what is published, then go and develope away from a statement that has been published, like , WC will not be down to luck,, but the developers have not implented into the game WC , items that can be obtained with out "luck drops"..
    I am trying to do the WC and will not even start it, untill i know i can complete it in time, so WC are out for me, if items are down to a "luck" find.

    Now that I've been into a few of the Weekly Challenges.... and with the assumption that they will not be removed or substantially changed.... all I would ask for at this point (and I think would satisfy a lot of other players) is when I see the first phase of a new challenge I could cancel that entire one at no cost, it would completely be gone from my quest list (except perhaps a counter until the next one) and one week later a new random one would appear. I'm not asking to cancel and then just get another until I get one I like - I'm happy to take a "penalty week" and wait.

    The last time I decided not to do it I fulfilled a phase just by doing normal activity and then spent 5 days having to stop the "quest complete" notification over and over which was maddening. Please give us the option to cancel and then wait 1 week waiting until the next one.

    I can't see why that wouldn't be a reasonable compromise.
    Sorry, but I've slept since then...

    More "do quests you don't have" in the WC's. This time it says 6 quests, so I have to get incredibly lucky of my searches and do it in time to actually do the quests once I find them. And, of course, as has been pointed out multiple times, the quest "list" is just one quest several times, so it isn't actually a list.
    This would be bad enough if the "list" was somehow restricted to ones we already had or somehow the Searches temporarily always turned up the ones we needed, but doing it on a timelimit without either is just nonsense. "Do X many quests" with a free pick could work - might need to say of a certain level or above to avoid everyone doing a ton of Lvl1 stuff over and over, but it would still be better than this.
    Also, Quests take time - obviously. If you get a Quest that takes 3 days to do and it says you need to find and complete 3 of them in a week (in addition to the rest of the WC's Quest Chain) then the maths just doesn't work.
    How did this ever get past Beta (assuming it was tested at some point, of course)?

    As long as it's autostarting, a compromise won't be reasonable enough - when and if to start a WC should be initiated by the player.
    25/11-14 , 23/02-16 .. The end is coming and it will look like this .
